The Wife, i and another couple, two of our best friends. We all had dinner and drinks last Saturday night. The service, drinks and food was excellent. This was our first time trying Metropolitan Cafe. We all will definitely be returning. I highly recommend it.

It was the best restaurant to eat. I was there for my uncle's 65th birthday. I give 20,000 stars for job well done and keep up the good work for the restaurant. You should have 2nd room for bigger parties.

The food here is solid! Great sushi. Rolls were kind of small and pricy but good. Sat outside in the back with friends. Really nice ambiance. Had a great time. Just a little on the expensive side.

Food and service was outstanding as usual! We made an early reservation to not have too many people around us. Group seating just adjacent was very loud…… at times uncomfortably loud.
