Very slow service, the food didn't have good taste and was cold. I normally don't complaint but it was unacceptable.

I'm not a big complainer in general, but it was crazy slow. My brother loves nearby and likes this place, so I think it was an off night for them. I honestly can't remember the food quality either way, so it was probably average. Took well over an hour and then things weren't correct so we had to send some... More

The food is excellent and will accommodate special requests. Service is very good, friendly and timely without overwhelming you. Is on the expensive side but is worth it.

My husband ordered the ropa veija mofongo and it was delicious!! I ordered the yuca on mojo and was disappointed it was bland. The grouper was good though!

our hotel recommended metropol for good black bean soup. I guess we should have ordered that. I got picadillo because my Cuban inlaws used to make it. My husband got shredded beef. The yellow rice comes cooked with something like hot dogs inside. which i guess is the "local" type but definitely not the yellow rice of paella. Both of... More

Ask for Jay! Jay! Jay! What a delightful, long-to-be-remembered experience. Thrifty Car rental suggested Metropol but Jay (our waiter extraordinaire) suggested the entrees. Originally, all four of us were going to order the mofongo, a Puerto Rican specialty, since none of us ever tried it. Our waiter, thankfully, thought otherwise. Instead he brought us a plethora of cuisine delicacies, a... More
