“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I can't say enough about the amazing staff at the Metropolitan Resto Bar. When a nearby restaurant cancelled our private party for 75 business executives just two days before our event, the Metropolitan Resto Bar came to the rescue! The Metropolitan is a lovely restaurant in the heart of downtown Toronto, that offers terrific ambiance and a fabulous menu. But it's the staff that made our event special, and ultimately stress-free. Despite all of the very last minute preparations, Pam, the Chef and rest of the staff went above and beyond to put the logistics in place and prepare an outstanding menu for a reasonable price. The guests were made to feel very welcome and the service was terrific. Whether you're planning a large party or an intimate dinner for two, I highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you Metropolitan Resto Bar!

“A bit overpriced, but a hip atmosphere and decent quality food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

The food and service here is notably superior to what you will find at a typical bar and grill, with a mix of businesspeople who work nearby and local residents. The prices are a bit higher than for most other places nearby, especially for lunch. Because of their presence in a historic district, they're not allowed to have bright signs advertising their presence, so if you're meeting someone there the other person might walk right by without realizing it (as happened to our friends twice in one week). This is an ideal place to go when you want a meal outside of regular eating hours, since it's most quiet and intimate then. The place is stylish without being pretentious.

“Nice, cozy, relaxed atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Wonderful menu, food is ok by standards, very comfortable to sit and have a drink and chat. Good coffee but too expensive especially that they don't do refills.
