“Best Place in Morris County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

You cannot beat Cafe Metro for food and value. I have been going there for many years and Never had a bad experience. Food is consistently wonderful, atmosphere is great as is the service. Located in a renovated two story house with a veranda for outside dining. It's a byob and the average price for dinner with tax and tip is 22.00. Their almond encrusted salmon served over garlic mashed potatoes and wilted spinach is the best I have ever had. Pasta dishes compare with Becco's in NYC which is owned by Lydia Basttianch and Mario Battali. You will not be adisappointed. The walls are lined with art from local talent that is available for sale. Treat yourself to a great dining experience.

“Okay, great if you are a vegan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2010

We have been there about 5 times. This is one of those restaurants that you either love or hate. First of all there is no red meat on the menu. Its either chicken or vegan entrees. Second this is a BYOB place. If you are a vegan this could be paradise, if you are a meat eater like me, well ..

“Good food, fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2009

My husband and I have eaten here many times, and we've always had good food. They have a large selection of vegan & vegatarian dishes, but also fish and chicken. The homemade potato chips are delectable. The daily list of specials always has something worth trying. The restaurant iteslf is fun and funky, and displays artwork for sale by local artists. Outdoor dining on the covered porch is great for people watching. The service is pleasant and competent.

“The worst hostess ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2009

My family wanted to eat dinner here, and made a reservation a week in advance, but when we got there, on time, the nasty hostess told us that they were not honoring reservations and we would have a 30 minute wait. There were clearly plenty of tables available. When I started to protest, she began naming other restaurants in the area and turned her back. We left, of course, and will never go back. Rude, rude, rude...why do nice places hire such nasty people, the first people you encounter?
