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

We had been given a gift card from this nearly local restaurant and had never used it. What a mistake as it will now be on our circle of dining choices. On a warm weekend day we dined on the expansive and shelter patio. The size is misleading as there were at least fifty other diners and yet we felt... More

The relax atmosphere of this restaurant is good for family, couples, or solo I have been here twice and the food and the service are excellent. We love theMetro Benedict on Acme toast with Zoes’s ham, poached eggs, potato galette & hollandaise; and Grilled Wild Fish Sandwich with mango chutney, red chile mayonnaise & fries(garlic fries).

I was with friends in Lafayette and didn't realize the time. It was after 4pm and we had not had lunch. We were already in the shopping center where Metro is located. We did a quick check on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. It was a cool day (55F - well it is California!) and the fire... More
