We love Metro! They have been doing an amazing job since reopening. The food and specials are always delicious!
PERRIC via - Nov 14, 2020
We’re just doing outside dining during COVID, and have been really pleased by how careful, but also comfortable Metro has been. They have heaters and when it is cold or windy, they put up plastic on the porch. The wait staff are tremendous. The food is varied, and continuously very tasty and healthy. So glad to be able to get out to ... read more

Food was as usual, very good. Service was a bit slow tonight outdoors but could be everyone overworked from the warm weather we had and many going out to enjoy one of the last nights of being able to go out as it turns cold.The food here is quality and have never been disappointed.

One of our favorites! On this particular evening however the waitress seemed very rushed, barely stopping to take our order. But the food was delicious. Ambience lovely. Great place.

Good food, and socially distanced
Good food, and socially distanced outdoor dining. The yin yang dumplings were delicious as was the Asian skirt steak tho it was a bit fatty. Service was great and perfectly timed. Didn’t feel rushed or like we waited too long. Would definitely go back.

The food never ever disappoints here. The drinks are great, the sushi is fresh, and any item on the menu I've ever ordered was perfect. However, we were lucky enough to sit inside but it seems there must be repairs going on and we sat at a small table right under wires hanging out of the wall. It looked like there was a wall sconce o ... read more

The food was very good and our server, Paige(sorry if misspelled) was absolutely delightful and attentive. I wanted a nice place to take my girlfriend for her birthday and I definitely picked the right place. Its a little on the pricey side but the food was great!
JeremyK via - Nov 1, 2020
Really a great place. We love sushi and it's very hard to find in central Jersey. Metropolitan Cafe has always had a great selection along with some great cocktails. Service is outstanding and the restaurant is super clean and inviting. We will be back soon.

Came for a dinner on a Friday and it was poppin for sure! Pretty crowded and the bar was full. I was slightly thrown off by the menu because half of the food is American with some little influences of italian and Spanish food. The other half of the menu was all Asian influenced and a long list of sushi. We had a little bit of everyth ... read more

Let me start by saying the scallop pinwheels are so damn delicious considering other options within thirty miles. With that being said, I also eat a Caesar Salad almost every where I go and theirs was tasty! Now my main complaint is they took forever to greet me once seated. I was super annoyed so I ordered all my dishes at once exce ... read more

The outdoor seating ambience is the best in town, beautiful and warm, LOVE the over head heaters. The food is always excellent and the servers are wonderful, everyone. We are so grateful to have this outdoor option even in cold rainy weather!!
Dassi via - Oct 25, 2020
The place is great, I go there with the intention of having a couple of martinis but there is always something I have to try from the menu...and I am always glad I did.
TyroneP via - Oct 24, 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and great service, however sitting towards the back of the restaurant the noise from the open kitchen or the banging of dishes at times was a distraction.... and hard to carry on a conversation....'s a great place with creative food....

Dev M. via - Oct 17, 2020
The food is always great here. I've never had anything I didn't like. But despite having a reservation we still had to wait another 20 minutes for our table and then got put so far away (outside) that we were two businesses down and nowhere near a heat lamp.

OpenTable Diner via - Sep 26, 2020
We were seated in the back patio, which is actually very nice and not as loud as the other options. We had Dave as our server and he was very good. We enjoyed the shrimp and calamari appetizer which is a personal favorite along with the butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli which now might have to be a go too.

OpenTable Diner via - Sep 26, 2020
We had a reservation and we did still wait at least 20 minutes maybe 30 to be sat. Metro is a favorite local spot for us, but our service could have been better. We did observe other servers moving at a much quicker speed than ours and it took longer than usual for our cocktails to come out. All in all it was a good experience and ... read more

Freehold, is an upbeat town, with plenty of activity and movement going on. While this is a positive vibe, it can be distracting when one is limited to outdoor dining.
DanielB via - Sep 24, 2020
Always consistent with food and service. We dine here about once a week and besides standard menu items, they alway have a special or two. No problem deviating on an entree. If they can accommodate, they will. Love the apps such as the dumplings, Wonton soup, crab cakes and shrimp and calamari. Burgers, chicken club, Asian chicken ... read more
