The food and drinks were perfection! Our server was delightful! The only thing that needs to change is the truck traffic through town.

The food at the Metro never disappoints! Their Sushi is ALWAYS the freshest, and their stuffed scallops are 2nd to none... They always seems to have unique cocktail offerings as well...Great date night!

Good to be back to a local mainstay. New menu additions. Always good service and fair pricing . They have done a good job adding outside seating around the building. Supporting our local businesses is so important . Try the dumplings, tacos and seafood selections. All innovative and delicious.

Went to Metro Cafe for our first outside dinning experience. They were very busy but we had a great dining experience, food and drinks outstanding. I give a lot of credit to Ryan it was her first night back to work and she did a wonderful job! Sushi fresh and tasty. We'll be back again soon!

Finally made it out to dinner after quarantine and I was so grateful for Metro being open and making me feel safe. The food was delicious and the service was great. They are following all the guidelines while still maintaining a solid dining experience.

Outside dining went well. The service was good. I had the steak salad and white sangria which is always delicious. A very nice lunch.

Prime rib ravioli was good, sushi is nice too but star of the night was Maddie. We went there to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and it was near closing time, server was not rushing us, she always had a great smile. Maddie is a sweetheart and she made our night.

Excellent food and service. The short ribs entrée and lobster special were delicious. Sushi appetizer was good as well.

Metropolitan cafe is dependable, always has fresh delicious food. We went most recently for a brunch and it was delicious. A large variety of options, great bar, and they take reservations-which isn’t common for brunch in the area.

Just outside Metropolitan Cafe the Voldemortian sentinel lays in wait. Because she's the hero Metropolitan deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt her. Because she can take it. Because she's not our hero. She's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A nose job knight ... read more

The Metropolitan Cafe has been the location of my family's traditional Christmas eve dinner for about 5 years now. The restaurant has a great ambiance (the upstairs is very cozy).
