“Go here when in the Vail Valley!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I loved The Metropolitan. Delicious and innovative tapas with great wine selections and service. Cool atmosphere. I was hesitant knowing that it is a sister restaurant to The Dusty Boot (and I am not crazy about the DB!) BUT it was excellent. My 17-year-old son thought it was great, too.

“Tapas are terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great dining experience. Every single plate of tapas we tried was wonderful (and we worked our way through a large portion on the menu). Staff was attentive without hovering. The only thing they need is bigger tables to hold all the tapas platters.

“Truly awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Imaginative and excellently prepared and presented tapas, great wines by the glass and some original cocktails are what makes this a must. Sophisticated but still appropriate for kids who can eat real food. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. 'Dates wrapped in bacon' were incredible and made even better by a 'smokey manhattan'.

“Love the tapas and wine bar!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We went here when we had company in town and it was a terrific experience! We even had a 3 year old with our group and our server didn't treat us like we were an inconvenience. At first I thought we would get small portions for a high price tag but I was very happy yo discover that the portion sizes are perfect to share and to try one of everything! The wine bar is great! Very innovative! We highly recommend The Met and will be back soon!!
