We have been here three times now and I'm still trying to figure out what all the hoopla is about. The food is OK, nothing seller about it other than the price. Our last visit was the worse of all. Rolls with a honey bacon glaze. Rolls were good but they burnt the bacon in the glaze. Wasn't even edible.... More

I dine at Metro Grill frequently and I'm never disappointed. The food and service is excellent. The menu and presentation is creative and never fails to exceed my expectations. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I were Cristmas shopping and she bought my lunch at this restaurant. I actually didn't know it was open. It feels good as you enter and the restaurant was very busy. The seating is fairly private, The menu is very full and the wine selection is excellent. The meal was fantastic. I had a chopped wedge salad... More

This is a nicer place. I took my husband for our anniversary and he really liked his dish, mine was pretty good as well (a little too fancy, as in some strange added combinations, trying a bit too hard). However, the dessert was excellent. We had the champagne cake. We decided to go there for lunch again and this time... More

After ordering drinks and some oysters, we received the drinks then were informed that they were out of oysters. OK, that happens, so how about some calamari instead? Sounds good. 10 minutes late, oops, sorry, we don't have any calamari, either. OK, so we'll try some bruschetta and fried spinach, which were very tasty. Then, someone shows up with calamari,...

Our hosts raved about this place. Meh. The menu was a little weird, with some strange combinations of foods/flavors. They are trying to much to be "fancy" I think. I think the food COULD be good if they weren't trying so hard and went back to some basics. It was well prepared, but, I just didn't care for the menu... More

The prices are a bit high, but the service and food are great. Did dinner on a weekday and had a great experience. Will definitely try it again.

My friends took me here to celebrate my birthday. It's a very trendy/upscale venue where people come to be seen. The after-work drinking crowd is really hopping here. Our waiter was very friendly and put a lot of effort into serving us, however he quickly became distracted when a 6-person group was seated near us, and started focusing on what... More

We were there for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant looks to be a local favorite for drinks after work for the locals. The bread with the sun dried tomato bread dip was wonderful and hard to stop eating. Before our entrees, we started with the green salad with tomato and artichoke hearts...it was a little lacking in flavor.... More
