“Might be the best meal I have had in forever”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Un believable quality of food cuisine wine pairing and service. First time there and it wont be the last. Cassie and Katie made the evening memorable all 4 of us let the server pick our meal and it could not have been netter the wines they chose and the quality portion size and ambiance made it a truly memorable experience. I have been going to this area for 10 years and regret I have not been there before. I willbe back each and everytime I return to Durham! Could not reccomend more highly.

“Brazilian Flair...but not "in your face"”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Flank Steak with Chimichuri sauce and the mint-encrusted tuna were the entree selections we opted for... they were great! The VERY rich provoleta appetizer was a decadent gooey delight. The servers were spot on and very accommodating; a team effort to be sure. The character-filled old building is a great backdrop for this upscale restaurant. The wine list is sufficient with nice options to pair with their diverse menu.

“Steakhouse with a twist”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The steaks look great here, though I've never ordered one. Their seafood and pasta dishes are excellent. The chef has several Latin American dishes on the menu as well. The empanadas are great as well as the crab stuffed shrimp, which were served with lovely pickled okra. The sushi I grade tuna special was outstanding and I can't resist the lobster ravioli in pink sauce. Service is attentive and friendly. Atmosphere has the quirky 9th Street vibe. Some of the tables are quite close together, which can be a drawback to private conversations when the venue isn't full.

Reviewed October 15, 2013

Everything I had at Metro 8 (Jalapeno Cilantro Cream Cheese spread for the bread, Provoleta, Pumpkin Soup and Lamb Chops – yes we were hungry!) was absolutely delicious!!!

“Not your average steakhouse”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Not your average steakhouse. Their seasonings and sauces are so different and unique. Had my graduation dinner there because I love it so much.
