The decor is very modern and the seating comfortable -- plenty of space between tables. Our server was very attentive. The food was excellent. We will definitely return.

The Metro North restaurant has a great location, free ample parking and a lovely interior. The lunch service was prompt and pleasant. However, the lobster quiche I ordered was rather dry and portion very small. It was accompanied by a small salad with warm creamy dressing. I am not sure why it was served warm on a crisp cold salad... More

The outside sitting is nice, the food is OK. Service was good. Not sure I will rush back, maybe for the burger only.

If you care at all about customer service, don't book Metro North. I've planned a number of events around Princeton, but never have I had such a lack of concern for my event as I had here. Whitney, the event coordinator, is just flat out inefficient. You call and maybe two or three days later she'll call back. Okay, so... More

Had lunch here, ordered the quiche. The quiche itself was a very small piece. It was good but not enough. I asked for warm vegetables instead of a salad and they hooked me up without a fuss! As dessert we had the brownie: can't go wrong with that, loved it. Service and atmosphere are very good!

Met with a friend for lunch here today and had a great dining experience. They accommodated us when I asked to be seated in the back of the restaurant that had a more airy ambiance to it. The waitress was very attentive throughout the meal. My entrée was on the lunch special and was really delicious. It was the shrimp,... More

Great atmosphere, fun place, great service. Nice appetizer menu. Both entrees that we ordered came out great. Not too pricey. Very very fun dinner.

I live in CT and my mom lives in NJ and was turning 80. Metro North Grill was suggested as the perfect place to have a luncheon celebration (approximately 40 guests) by my sister who's job hosted their Christmas party there. I booked it site unseen - just by sisters' description and what their website offered. The room (upstairs, no... More

This restaurant is close to home for me, but it's changed hands over the years and I had not been there in quite some time. I will definitely plan on visiting again soon. The menu included lunch specials, and I had a chance to try two items: the special cheese filled cannelloni in a bolognese sauce and the bleu cheese... More
