“An Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I hadn't been to dinner at Mettawas for approximately 3 years. Back when we were regulars we found the food and service to be acceptable but not exceptional. My how things have changed !!

After stepping through the door we received a very nice welcome and were seated by the fireplace. The table candle was already lit and there was very relaxing music playing in the background .

Our server Jesse was very clean cut and had a nice big smile. He made us feel very welcome and it was obvious that he enjoyed what he was doing. He explained the menu very well and offered to let us sample some of the local wines before placing our order.

We both ordered steak - my wife filet minion and a New York strip for myself. The bread was fresh and served very warm and the Greek salad was exceptional. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the chefs presentation was beautiful. The stout chocolate cheesecake with bacon bits was daring but it was delicious,so glad we tried it.

Overall it was a wonderful dinner in a relaxing atmosphere. Mettawas has really stepped up their game and we will most definitely be back.

Always provide great service and the food is fantastic. Make sure you make a reservation as a smaller restaurant, we'll worth planning ahead. In the past we have visited on New Year's Eve and had fantastic meal.

Thank You for taking your time to make a review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the food we provide here at Mettawas. Although sad to hear that you thought our server was lacking some product knowledge and had made some mistakes. We like to take this feedback seriously and will work hard at training servers giving them as much information about the available products to avoid this in the future.
