Great outdoor patio

We met another couple and had a great evening on the patio. It was a great scene, very busy. The food was excellent and they have a great wine and beer selection. The service was excellent and the shared plates were great to allow everyone at the table to have a taste.

Everything is great- service and menu offerings are well thought out. Happy Hour and bar scene is nice for the upscale after-work crowd. BUT BEWARE: NOISY- hard walls and ceiling seem to increase the noise.... so sit outside on the patio or do not go during Happy Hour or at a busy time...

This is a nice, upscale restaurant. The menu has many unique and delicious items on it. They have several martinis that are fabulous. Great place for a date night.

Drinks are very good, food, also. The major drawback to enjoyment is the background noise which greatly affects the ambience. If you sit in the bar area or outside, it's okay. In the dining room it is another story, which I hope never to repeat.

We stopped here for dinner before a play in SF. It is convenient to the BART station. My wife and I ordered from the Prix-fixe menu, both selecting the Petrale-sole. The fish was pan-seared perfectly. The salad was mixed greens only. They offered cheese for an extra charge, so I recommend you add the cheese. The Sauv Blanc wine was... More

I had a business dinner here for 16 people last night, and it was quite crowded for a Saturday night as well. My group was seated quickly when we arrived. We ordered various cocktails. Then we had appetizers, Crispy Brussel Sprouts, Shrimp Spring Rolls, Dungeness Crab Cakes, Spicy Ahi Tuna Poke, and Garlic Fries. They were very good and nicely... More

Food is good, Brussels sprouts are fabulous. Good cocktails. It is noisy in the bar but other dining areas are quiet. Outside dining is spacious and pretty.

The atmosphere is always good, the food and drinks excellent, topped off with good service. Why look further? The bar is open late. It's a comfortable place where people are respectful of one another's privacy / space.

The Metro has become the place to meet, drink and eat. We have attended many group gathering there for various occasions from business events to birthday celebrations. The food is very good. I recommend the tuna tartare and the brussels sprouts. Main courses are always good. The full bar is always hopping. The out door space is better is you... More

Metro is a great place to meet friends at the bar and dinner in the restaurant. Drinks and food are great. There is a large outdoor seating area which is wonderful. Inside, I would opt for the tables near the fireplace for a more quiet evening. All the food is excellent. Great wine selection.
