Metro never disappoints. Occasionally a server forgets about you, but that's no big deal. There are enough people running around that you can get what you need. The menu is diverse, offering many options from which to choose. At our lunch this week one of the specials was a lobster sandwich, with bacon, tomato, and lots of good things. The... More

Metro has a good menu with a lot of tasty choices. Their soups are always good. The crab salad is one of our favorites. Also recommended: crispy chicken sandwich, fish tacos, fish and chips, steak salad, bruschetta, crispy Brussels sprouts... we've eaten here many times for years and are never disappointed. Friendly service, too.

Every time I eat here there is a birthday (womens) party going on on the patio or by the fire. I LOVE the food here. It's wonderful and the service is tops!

I came here with friends for drink and ordered some light food. My drink was good and I liked it. Metro wasn't cheap it was expensive for me. But enjoyed my food and my drink

The service was inattentive to say the least. Lots of waiters standing around ignoring us. I made the reservation through Open Table but never received the Open Table credit. The food is mediocre or maybe slightly less than mediocre. The wine, the same. Getting ripped off for the Open Table credit is the icing on the cake to insure I'll... More

I would actually give 3.5 stars here if that was possible.... good for sure but not great. It was a mild evening and we sat out on the patio which was lovely. Restaurant was not too crowded and service was fine. The Caesar salad was tasty - I would get that again. We also had a few of the appetizers... More

This restaurant has many positives. Parking available and free, great bar and staff, beautiful outdoor seating with umbrellas and heaters. The outdoor area feels very " vacation like", surprising as it is on the main road through town. The menu has varied offerings and I have always been satisfied and impressed with flavor a and presentations. The staff and bar... More

First of all, the service was outstanding, we sat in the patio, there was some large group the patio was packed but we were not ignored and our waiter was helpful and attentive. Poke was the appetizer, rather tasty, but the fish and chips were just OK. The most outstanding part of the meal was the gelato sundae! I expected... More

Had not been there for a year and my wife wanted to celebrate her birthday there on a not crowded Saturday night.. We had three in our party and each one of had complaints about the... More
