Good spot!

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... read 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

We celebrated my mother and daughters birthdays at The Metropolitan this weekend and we had a great experience. The food was delicious...their spring roll sampler and calamari is AMAZING! Everyone was very satisfied with their meal although my steak could have used a bit more seasoning and their homemade Caesar dressing tasted very much like ranch. My only complaint was... More

A native NYer, I'm always looking for classic diners in the area and they're few and VERY far between. The Metropolitan more than fills this gap, and then some. We have been many times and have yet to be disappointed. From breakfast (love the benedicts) to sandwiches (buffalo shrimp brioche is my favorite) to burgers and entrees (truffle bacon burger,...

We ate here twice and gave up. The service was friendly but so mediocre; servers are not well trained. But the bigger problem is the food. Ate with our family of four and each on of us had issues with our dishes -- it was not just one dish during one visit. Food ranged from tasteless to over salted, to... More

We have eaten here many, many times for family birthdays, an impromptu wedding party dinner & just because. The food is always good, and plentiful. The service is usually very good & always pleasant.
