“Great Girls Night!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

The drinks were amazing, the menu and specials were exceptionally crafted, we'll definitely be back! We decided to have a girls martini night on our week long beach vacation and this was definitely a highlight of our trip! The food was delicious, and the chef (owner maybe?) visited every table to explain the menu and describe the flavor. It was a very personal touch to this little gem of restaurant. We had the tuna tartar, lobster poutine, calamari, and a crab pasta. All were prepared very nicely and tasted even better than were presented. Can't wait to go back!!

“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Owners (who were the waiter and bartender) were awful. Took 3 hours to have a few drinks and 3 tapas each, (there were two of us) We had to flag the waiter down everytime we wanted to order something. Our drinks sat empty until we got up and went to the bar to get new ones and no one ever came over to ask how everything was. To top it all off the waiter didn't even ask us if we wanted desert, just brought the check. Won't be going back to this place again. There are lots of other places with good food and great service on the outer banks.

“Best Restaurant I've Eaten in A long Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

My husband and I ate there in May of this year. This review is long overdue. We ate there based on another review. We love the Outer Banks and have been there 2 times and plan to be there more in the future. We've eaten at almost all the high end restaurants however since we've eaten at Metropolis we'll be hard pressed to eat anywhere else. The owners were very informative however the food was incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!Everything I ordered always suprised me in presentation and it was also a masterpiece. Whatever the specials are get them don't let your brain think twice just choose it. Since we found Metropolis this year we ate the next night there which was our last night in Duck. When we go back to Duck we will always eat here every night and maybe we'll try another restaurant we haven't tried before. My only regret is that there are no tapas restaurants where we live to this caliber. This is such a great unique experience!!!!!!!!Prove me wrong and try it just once. Don't let your brain think tapas is not for you because once you've had them here you will be forever spoiled. Thank you and blessings to all.
