I have eaten here twice and both times I have had an excellent meal. My favorite is the vodka rigatoni. The service is fast and the decor is inviting and relaxing.

I have had dinner here 5 times this year. We find it has a very intimate atmosphere, nice bar area and the food is very good. Good quality Italian dishes and a good selection of seafood and steaks. Very good service!

We were looking for a restaurant in the Princeton between our daughter's apartment and our house. Someone had previously recommended Metro North so we decided to give it a shot. It was a beautiful night so we sat outside. The menu was large and there were several Chef's Specials. The waitress was very helpful navigating the menu and making suggestions.... More

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!
