Something for everybody

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... read 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. I had the chicken corn chowder (which I ALWAYS get at lunch there) along with their lunch portion of tuna with tempura broccoli and rice. The tuna... More

I went to this restaurant for the first time last Sunday. We had a large group of people (6 adults, and 7 kids) and they sat us in a back room, and we had it all to ourselves which was nice. The food was delicious. I was SO excited because they had gluten free options, and not just options like... More

Stopped here for dinner one night, well I'm a fan! Huge array of items on the menu and for all types of diets. I could just eat the appetizers they were so good and big portions (i had the fried pickles). When they say "to share" they mean it. I had the fish tacos for my entree and they were... More

I have eaten at The Metropolitan at least four times and have been completely satisfied each time. I love the modern, upscale interior. It's not what you would expect from a "diner", but The Metropolitan is not the typical "diner". They do serve breakfast all day long, but I prefer to order from their dinner menu. They have a full...

I heard so many good things about this restaurant so I stopped in today for breakfast. It was very good and a nice change from usual diner breakfast. The hostess was extremely friendly which in my mind is very important since she is the first person you interact with. I will be going back to give dinner a try.

Inspired ! What I liked most was how they took common dishes and added a flare (blackened Tuna with orange glaze.) The food was served hot and fresh and tasted like they made it just for me. I can't wait to go back and try the many apps and entrees that looked good to start, and now I'm sure will... More

Finally stopped at the Metropolitan American diner. I've been looking at the reviews online for a few months now he decided to try it. On this occasion arrived about 4:30, restaurants was fairly empty found parking to be inadequate even at that time and worse later when leaving after the restaurant became crowded. The place had a very modern feel... More
