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

We went to Metro in Lafayette last night and had an uneven experience. The food was great but the service was a letdown because of our indifferent waiter. But, if we had been seated in another area, we probably would have had a better overall experience. First the food, which was excellent from the fresh warm bread and the starter... More

For lunch I had their Dungeness Crab Salad on butter lettuce with avocado, grapefruit & citrus vinaigrette, and my friend had their Spicy raw Ahi Tuna Poke on cucumber salad with sesame... More

Everything is great- service and menu offerings are well thought out. Happy Hour and bar scene is nice for the upscale after-work crowd. BUT BEWARE: NOISY- hard walls and ceiling seem to increase the noise.... so sit outside on the patio or do not go during Happy Hour or at a busy time...

We met another couple and had a great evening on the patio. It was a great scene, very busy. The food was excellent and they have a great wine and beer selection. The service was excellent and the shared plates were great to allow everyone at the table to have a taste.

This is a nice, upscale restaurant. The menu has many unique and delicious items on it. They have several martinis that are fabulous. Great place for a date night.
