Upon arrival, the... More

Valentine's dinner was not only a fabulous menu and reasonable but the decor was tasteful and romantic with a rose for every lady thrown in. This is quite usual for the Metro from lunches to events and dinner you can not go wrong, and the staff are friendly and helpful too.
