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

Have been to this restaurant a number of times over several years. It had been pretty solid for food. Service always good as well. 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

We ate early and had a nice table. But from the minute we sat down, our waiter told us not once, but at least three times that we had to leave our table by a certain time for the next guests. The food was ok, but nothing great which would have been fine if not for the bad service.

Hideously hard to park at lunch time; real hassle but food is worth it. Expensive but delicious. Overpriced wine not worth the money. Once we had our food, serving staff ignored us. Seemed they were more interested in their "regulars" .... Would return 'though for the fabulous Washington Dungeness crab salad.

I believe that Metro Lafayette is a solid 3.5 stars. We came here the other night to meet couple friends for a get together. We decided to just share a bunch of the small plates. We started with 6 West Coast Oysters and 6 East Coast oysters. Both were equally fresh, slightly briny, and tasty. The west coast oysters were... More
