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.

Food was average. Servers were very professional though. My husband liked his burger but the shrimp and grits were quite bland. I won’t make a return visit.

Badly needed date nite w the hubs. Our server was OUTSTANDING. Never a bad meal at The Met Cafe. Apps were on fire (shrimp/calamari app is 🔥 ). Cocktails are inventive and yummy. Great time.

Stellar local restaurant that never disappoints, with a great bar for the perfect Zyr martini! The menu has great staples, but we had 2 of the specials which were amazing. The wait was a bit long for the entrees but understandably was Valentines Day. This is one of my favorites!
LisaA via - Feb 15, 2020
Excellent food and service. The short ribs entrée and lobster special were delicious. Sushi appetizer was good as well. Unfortunately the lobster bisque was not good; it tasted like a watery tomato soup. One other issue was our tiny table upstairs. We were stuck near a corner and the servers had to practically climb over us every few ... read more

Lovely brunch
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.

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). They always have the best specials and I typically try whatever specials they are offering. Also their Kalahari appetizer is absolutely wonderful.

I have been to Metro Café in the past and will return in the future. The food is excellent with good choices. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is a cozy place. The prices are reasonable especially for the portions you receive which is plentiful. As noted I have been there before and will be returning often.

Met with a few friends at Metropolitan Cafe. Nice menu. They had 1/2 off a bottle of wine (on a Monday). Nice incentive. Food was very good. A bit pricey, but felt it was worth it.
