While the walls and ceiling are attractively decorated to look like a bistro, even though it is right off the main walkway of the casino, the seating itself didn't look that great. The wine list consisted of one choice per varietal, but I really liked the 14 Hands cabernet. We started with the Thai chicken skewers with ginger chili dressing. Just as I was about to ask, the server brought hot rolls and butter. The grilled salmon with mango papaya salsa was nothing special, but good. The seafood fra diavolo which included mussels, clams, shrimp, and lump crab over linguine, all of which was perfectly cooked. Service was prompt and polite.

Later in the evening we tried the attached gelato and bakery for a late dessert.

Great Breakfast! Did not wait on line just walked to the bar. Was served immediately I had a great breakfast. Watched a little golf on the big screen. Although I did not have anything to drink they had a good selection of wines and hard liquor.

Although we showed up late for breakfast (11:30a), our waiter made sure that whoever wanted breakfast got it. Try the cinnamon bun French toast. Service was excellent as was the food.

As soon as check in we hit the Metropolitan for our usual late lunch. This is seafood at its freshest. Fresh clams and oysters on the half shelf, hot creamy chowder and ice cold beers. What could be better? Hands down, the best and freshest cocktail sauce anywhere.

This is one of the Borgatas more casual sit down restaurants. Some tables are outside of the main restaurant so you feel like you are at an outdoor cafe. Highly recommended! We found the food to be good and the service excellent. At 6 on a weekday there was a bit of a wait for a table but not too bad. Had some tasty mussels, some nicely prepared penne with an asiago cheese sauce and a just OK apple crisp. It's not in the menu but you can ask for gelato which is exquisite. The general consensus was that we would eat here again. Do not recommend the meatloaf, but wings and burgers are good. Spaghetti and meatballs also not recommended. The meatballs are good but the pasta had almost no sauce and was very bland.
