Met a colleague for happy hour and it was a great time. The chardonnay was excellent for $5 a glass! The french fries were delicious - thin and crisp. Service was outstanding. I would highly recommend coming for happy hour.

We love the industrial-ish vibe of the interior with the polished concrete floor and streamlined design. We started off a little rough with the wait staff -- we ate late in the afternoon, then decided to switch tables on our own. However, our new waiter had a good sense of humor and turned our lunch into a fun and delicious... More

Metro has it all....great cocktails, delicious signature dishes made with organic sustainable ingredients, and a great neighborhood vibe. It's the perfect place to meet friends, celebrate an occasion or have a family dinner. Beautiful large patio with twinkle lights, and in the colder weather, a lovely and cozy fireplace room. Many new restaurants have popped up recently in Lafayette, but... More

My hubby and I went for dinner yesterday. I notes-ed that there were many girl/lady groups there. They were happy and noise but it gave me an idea that I should have my girl friends there too some time. The service was very good and so as the food.

The menu has many choices, but not overly-aggressive. What we like is the choices of small plates, and the choices of entrees. The food is tasty. Our server, Catalin, was very helpful, and made excellent suggestions, when asked. He also gave us "time" to decide, so we could choose, and eat at our pace, NOT their pace. There is also... More

We've lived in Lamorinda for years and shop in the complex that Metro sits in all the time but haven't taken the time to try it out until this past week. We are regretting that decision as we had a great time there and enjoyed some terrific food! The restaurant is non-descript on the outside but has a nice, casual... More

We had a great lunch experience stumbling upon Metro while in Lafayette walking along Mt Diablo Blvd / Our server, Donna, made great menu recommendations and the food was first rate. Fish & Chips, Caesar Salad, Chicken Sandwich, Hamburger were all prepared to perfection and eating outdoors on their patio in a nice shaded spot only added to the experience.... More

Have enjoyed the bar for happy hour, $5 wines, cocktails made with care, and small bites available. Lots of natural light, not a dark bar. Fun place to meet the girls after work.

We recently had a wonderful brunch on the patio. Food and service were really good. Despite opening onto a main street, the patio is sheltered and quiet. We have also eaten there many other times and always enjoy going back.

We have been to Metro many times for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner. This was family dinner - they put us in the main dining room near the fire. Very nice. Round table for six. Service was excellent, the food was great - some of the dishes we liked were the ribeye steak, mary's chicken, and the sausage rigatoni. Friendly and... More
