A great selection of wines by the glass and some really good hors d'oeuvre's. The goat cheese stuffed figs are awesome !

My husband and I were in Beaver Creek for 4 days in July. We go there quite often and discovered a new restaurant . . . The Metropolitan. They serve tapas that are excellent; in fact we went there for happy hour two nights in a row for tapas and wine and it was enough for us that we didn't even need dinner.. Don't be put off by "tapas" thinking they are just not enough . . . believe me they are enough and the quality was very good. Stop in for happy hour, sample a few, have a drink and then go on to a late dinner . . . that is if you don't fill up on those tapas first.
We will definately go back.

We've been going to Beaver Creek for years, and The Metropolitan is JUST what the town has been needing! It's a wonderful tapas restaurant/coffee bar/wine bar that has a wonderful atmosphere. The service was fantastic, and the food blew us away. For being tapas-style with the food, the portions were quite large and extremely fresh. As vegetarians, we've always had a tough time dining in Beaver Creek, but this place gave us a guaranteed healthy, delicious lunch every day. Order a bunch of items and enjoy the variety. Try the stuffed piquillo peppers and the aguacate - they are amazing!!

Enjoyed a glass of wine and loved the Enomatic, food (especially lobster tacos) was delicious. Service has been mediocre every time I've been in - they forgot about our dessert order, and it took over 1/2 hr to get our check.

I was bit skeptical about the Enomatic (automated, card operated wine dispenser) when I read about it. But, it turned out to be a lot of fun and very practical. Having the ability to taste several different wines in different sized pours was great. Our dinner was dynamite, too. We only had three tapas but each was perfectly prepared, perfectly sized and delicious. They were: satay, stuffed small pequilla peppers and a vegetable flatbread. We sat at the bar, enjoyed our leisurely dinner and schmoozed with the bartender (owner? manager?) All in all, a terrific evening.
