“Nice ambiance, great service but disappointing dish!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

The Metro North restaurant has a great location, free ample parking and a lovely interior. The lunch service was prompt and pleasant. However, the lobster quiche I ordered was rather dry and portion very small. It was accompanied by a small salad with warm creamy dressing. I am not sure why it was served warm on a crisp cold salad on a very humid day. They did replenish water and reminded our party as we left that someone had forgotten their sweater. I would recommend this place for a drink or leisurely dinner since it is not in downtown Princeton and offers easier access and parking. Be aware that a lot if construction is happening in the vicinity if you plan to drive to town to walk around.

“Ok food”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The outside sitting is nice, the food is OK. Service was good.
Not sure I will rush back, maybe for the burger only.

“Group luncheon”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

If you care at all about customer service, don't book Metro North. I've planned a number of events around Princeton, but never have I had such a lack of concern for my event as I had here. Whitney, the event coordinator, is just flat out inefficient. You call and maybe two or three days later she'll call back. Okay, so calling doesn't work, so let's try emailing. No better. My party was a day away and I STILL did not have my questions answered. It's really a shame because the venue is very nice. But when you're spending $1500 or more, I'd like a little service! Go elsewhere, I will!

“Great brownie!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here, ordered the quiche. The quiche itself was a very small piece. It was good but not enough. I asked for warm vegetables instead of a salad and they hooked me up without a fuss!
As dessert we had the brownie: can't go wrong with that, loved it.


Service and atmosphere are very good!
