I met a friend for a dinner during the week at the restaurant. The service is quite helpful if a bit too eager at times (multiple waitstaff stopped by to ask how the meal was). I had the tuna dinner entree which was decent but nothing exceptional. The atmosphere is quite comfortable and there were many families there. The space... More

My wife and I dined here and were very impressed. The place is usually crowded but to take reservations off their web site (not Open Table). With a reservation, we were seated immediately. I had the Truffled Bacon and Egg burger and it was probably one of the best burgers I have ever had. Very tasty and juicy. My wife... More

I've been passing by this place for some time and thought it was time to stop by and try it. Well, it's OK, but there are a lot of other places within a few miles that I prefer, so I probably won't be going back. The menu selection was large, but oddly, only a few things sounded good from the... More

The Metropolitan American Diner and Bar is not what it sounds if you are familiar with diners in PA or NJ. While diners have been upgrading their atmosphere fro years, the Metro is a cut above an upgrade. It is a whole new experience. The food is very nearly fine dining while the atmosphere is comfortable and upscale casual. And,... More

This was our 3rd time dining here, and once again the food and service were excellent, and the portions are generous. The pricing is also very fair. Our only issue is that the 1/2 price happy hour is only available at the bar or in the tavern. We love to dine outside, and had to keep running back inside to... More

This was our groups lst encounter with the Metropolitan. We were plesantly surprised by the appearance of the building, inside and out as it looked more like an upscale restaurant rather than a diner and bar. The service was cordial and the quality and quantity of food was above average. The only suggestion I would make is to indicate if... More
