“Great brunch, varied lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

The brunch here is lovely, quite a spread and typical excellence for the Borgata experience! The lunch was a first for us, they had pasta, pizza, roast beef, cod and salmon done to perfection! Fresh fruit, 3 types of ice cream/sorbet, coconut macaroons, a plethora of dessert choices, even some sugar free items for those watching that, and biscotti! We were in food heaven!

“for afternoon lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were there on Sunday, no wait for a outside table. There was 5 of us, we had the soup, and a corned beef on rye , not a bad sandwich. My wife had the samon which was good, nice dish.I had a beer on tap , the rest had soda. We will be back when in town.

“So slowwwwwww!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Why is this restaurant so incredibly awfully SLOW? The food's not bad, nothing extravagant but nothing terrible either. But sooooooo slowwwwwwwwwwww. If you show up hungry, you will be famished and then starving and then dead by the time your food arrives.

Now I know what you're thinking... "This guy's been there one time, on Memorial Day, and is whining because it was busy."

Ah, no. We've frequented the Borgata for years now, and have been to the Metropolitan numerous times because it is the only eatery on the premises in between "way expensive 'fancy' cuisine" and "takeout fast food." Whether the joint is hopping busy or dead as Socrates, you can still plan on aging like a fine wine while they take forever wrangling up your meal.

Was just there this past weekend and same experience as always, just figured I'd share it this time. Oh, and no I didn't order some weird exotic specialty to eat. It was 30+ minutes of staring down at the table after I ordered waiting for a plate with some eggs and hash browns on it.

“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

We had lunch here and loved every bite! We started with the oysters, then I had an omelet and my husband had a burger. We figured we'd have an average meal, but it was definitely much better than that. Service was excellent, too (we sat at the oyster bar). Thanks for a nice experience!
