Food was very good. Filet mignon spring rolls very flavorful although a little greasy.  Shrimp and calamari app outstanding.  I had the short ribs which were perfectly cooked but a very small portion. The pork chop was a good size but could have been a little less cooked. Mushroom risotto with shrimp was excellent.

I come here quite a bit and it has always been a great time, for late night drinks, a quiet lunch, or a fun family dinner. The decor is pretty and cozy. The lounge area in the front is nice to have drinks in. The booths in the back are romantic to have a date night. The lunch I went to with my grandpa in November I got a sesame tuna ... read more

Restaurant had a fantastic atmosphere and great service. I went on a saturday night without a reservation and was seated immediately. Food came out in a timely manner and our drinks were great.

Victoria always gives the best service. We always enjoy our time at Metropolitan cafe! Love the food, service and atmosphere. The only criticism is they don’t play music in the background. They should think about doing that. It’s toooooo quiet. Especially at 25% capacity.

I went 2 nights in a row. The filet mignon was fantastic. Apps were all good. Service is excellent.The 2nd visit we tried the sushi. It was below our expectations. Very skinny and lacking taste. I will assume that the sushi chef had the night off, because this is usually a very dependable dining spot.
