“Menu worth a repeat”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Close to the businesses and hotels in the Carnegie Center area, I saw that Metro North had salmon on the menu so I decided to give it a try. The menu has several seafood items that I will try on the next trip here. The salmon was delicious with spinach. The bread is rustic and also very good. The bartender took the time to tell me about how they make their pastas, cheeses, and more in house every day. For business travel, this foodie was very happy eating here and will be back for more.

“Perfect Spot after a walk along the Canal”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Toughest part of dining at Metro was getting the traffic to stop while crossing the road from Turning Basin Park. After that it was all perfect -- nice greeting, seating outside, libations followed by bread and olive oil and water and then entrees of our choice -- penne on one side and excellent salmon on the other. Service was excellent -- good suggestions, unobtrusive yet there. The view off the outside deck is not inspiring, but good food, drink and conversation made that irrelevant. Check it out!

“Delicious Surprise”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Join a wedding party at the metro and must admit, I didn't have my hopes upon driving into the parking lot. What a great surprise! Service us excellent but not intrusive in the least. Lovely staff was always nearby and ready to take care of us. The food was outstanding, using wonderfully fresh ingredients. Our entire party was wowed by the experience. It's a nice choice away form the crowd and off the Nassau Street congestion. The atmosphere is cozy, lighting is subdued and it can be a bit noisy but not to the point of being annoying. Service is definitely the big plus here.

“Good eats”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice place with solid and not fancy food--spaghetti, burgers, chicken, etc. Never disappointed. Atmosphere is pleasant and friendly.

“Nice place for a Saturday evening date.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We ordered draft been which came in nice cold glasses. The bread and olive oil accompaniment was quite tasty. We shared a Manchego salad which was large, flavorful and delicious. My husband enjoyed his pasta with sweet Italian sausage, but my capellini with crab meat was a bit dry. I think I would try a different entree were we to return here in the future.
