“Wonderful ambience and great service & food!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

The food was the real winner here, but the dimly lit room and attentive wait staff made this an even better experience. Try the flash fried spinach appetizer. I have never seen (or heard) of this before but a tasty treat. It's seasoned with garlic and parmesan. The wait staff takes great time explaining some of the "different" dishes. The price for six with dinner, drinks and appetizers was only around $300. A great value and a wonderful experience.

Great place for cocktails and dinner. Large menu with something for everyone. Sit on the covered patio on the couch. Springfield chic

“Don't normally rate restaurants but....”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Metropolitan Grille has an excellent menu from seafood to beef and several items in between. Was informed that there had been a recent change to the menu and as this was our first visit, they apparently did a great job with it. Never hurts to call for reservations for dinner. Lot of locals seemed to frequent this place for the atmosphere and the great bar. Staff get many thumbs up!

“Not a family place”
Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

The food is either good or really poor just never know. I got very sick in the salmon. Bummer. This is the local hangout so lots of alcohol. Rave music turned on at10:00 so gets loud and total change of scene.
Not the restaraunt it use to be.

“Local review- great nice place to eat.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Food is always incredible. Probably the top nice (not super fancy) place to eat. A definite favorite for the locals and the place the more wealthy people eat and have a nice drink.

Of course you can see its a bit pricey but I think worth it if you have a nice business lunch to host, have a nice date or have the money to burn.

Highly recommend!

Hope I helped you.
