Excellent lunch destination

I was in Springfield recently for work and my sales rep and I had lunch here. I was told that the reuben was not to miss, and he was right! And the "hot tots" were fun on the side, tater tots tossed in buffalo hot sauce and crumbled bleu cheese. If you're in need of a nap, this dish will... read more

I will admit the food here is good. The decor however looks like an outdated 70's Bar/restaurant/Disco. Its just plain sad and the layout is poor as well. I've been there several times over the last few months and it seems the service just got worse and worse every time I went. The Last time was the LAST time I... More

We went to Metro for a girls night and as always, it was great. I had pasta, one person had pizza and the rest had steak of some kind. Everything was cooked perfectly and wonderful.

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

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
