Great food! Slow service.

After waiting for more than an hour for our food to arrive, it was very tasty. I think that we happened to be there when there was a show at a nearby theatre and our food order got put behind the orders of the theatre goers or something. But we waited and waited and waited! They didn't even give... read more

The customer service was excellent and the environment was very pleasant. It wasn't very crowded but we were having a late dinner. The food was tasty and I would visit again.

We had the worst dinning experience ever in Seattle tonight. We had reservations for 14 at 5PM. By 6:15 they had served 6 of our people but the rest of the meals were no where to be seen. We had told them we had theater tickets for 7PM but they only though it was for the 6 who were served.... More

Thank you for posting your comments about your experience, I normally don't address reviews but I felt it was necessary for this particular event. As we talked about at your table on Sunday evening I completely understood your frustration with what had transpired. I agreed that the time to produce your meals was unacceptable and I truly never want people... More

We arrived in Seattle via a tour group to attend The Book of Mormon. They dropped us off beside the Paramount theatre. We needed to eat before the show, so walked up 9th and found Metropole. Asked the woman at the front if we needed reservations. The place was full and the good part was that it wasn't ear splitting... More

My girlfriends and I did a Paint Nite at this location and decided to grab a bite after our class. It's a small simple menu which made it easy to decide. I had the Pulled Pork Sandwich w/slaw, it came with seasoned fries and a side of ketchup. Pork was very flavorful and bun was lightly toasted. The service was... More

This is a moderately priced restaurant at street level directly across from the Seattle Convention Center. It's better than fast food, but it was only adequate. We seated at around 6 pm and we were practically the only ones in the relatively large place. Our server was extremely friendly, unfortunately, he was somewhat inept. The food was served just a...

Went to the Metropole for the first time, after walking past for years and not noticing it. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting, food was good, service was excellent. There was something on the menu to please everyone, and with seven of us this was very helpful.

So I have been staying long term in a hotel just up the road from this restaurant and almost every time I have walked by it there never seems to be many people in it. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and my wife and we decided to give it a try. Wow were we wonderfully surprised [and somewhat... More

A little disappointed..with service and food quality. It took well over 45 minutes for our order to arrive. The waiter did apologize and compted us a round of drinks..so we perked up..but then the food came. The soup was good, but most of us (5people) agreed that our entrees were disappointing. The wait time for our food probably caused our... More

This was my first time eating out in Seattle. I just happened to walk by and this place caught my eye. Might not have seen it except for the musician who was sitting outside that caught my ear first. He was definitely not employed by the establishment but was keeping a great beat. I was greeted at the door and... More
