Best outside dining in Lafayette

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.

Love this local restaurant with big city tastes... It is loud so Skip on big holiday party type nights ...but lunch outside, table by fireplace or casual dinner on a weeknight is really perfect.. Their drink menu is fun and delicious, great apps and try beets and Brussels sprouts.

We like to eat here on a fairly regular basis, once or twice a week. The outdoor patio and externally wrapped plastic outdoor space are fantastic places to dine outdoors. Inside is good as well but tends to be loud. The wait staff is consistent, friendly, and experienced. The menu changes regularly which makes regular dining tremendous. The wine list... More

We visited Metro for Sunday brunch encouraged by their Michelin guide recommendation but were disappointed with what is no more than your average strip mall place. To start things on the wrong way the milk in our lattes was spoiled, probably someone left it overnight outside the fridge, then we ordered orange juice which the waiter said was not freshly...

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
