Been in the North Wales area for a few years now, and heard abotu this place from a chef at a gourmet restaurant in Lambertville. He said on of the best undiscovered kitchens and dining experiences especially in term of value. And he wasn't kidding. Have had a few lunched there now and really can't wait for the next one...

Our son was getting married and we where looking for a reasonable priced restaurant for the night before Rehearsal Dinner in the area. Metropolitan fit the bill perfectly. The rehearsal was on a Friday night and most restaurants in the area were not willing to give up their group room for a group of about 30 people. Metropolitan was accommodating-... More

I had chicken marsala and my husband had a cheeseburger, others had salmon and cheeseburger. we would all rate the food better than average but not excellent: 3.5 out of 5 stars. Prices were good considered moderately priced.

The all day menu offerings mean you can order breakfast lunch and dinner all day long! We arrived at 7:30 pm so we missed the main dinner rush. We tried to go again the next day but arrived in the middle of the dinner rush hour at 6:15 and declined the 45 minute wait for dinner. I'm not sure if... More

Six of us went here for lunch. It was my first visit, but I sure hope not my last. Amazing variety, interesting mixes of ingredients, great prices. I had the Buffalo shrimp brioche sandwich which has gorgonzola and pepper jack cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, and a chipotle aioli. It was delicious. Others had burgers, salads, clubs, soup, and even a... More

I have been to Metropolitan Diner at least 10 times, and it never disappoints! I dined there for lunch yesterday. They bring out bread, and it is really tasty, with a rosemary crust.
