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

Service was amazing! They easily accommodated to my girlfriend needing to swap out items. When sauces were asked to be on the side they were. The filet mignon spring rolls were amazing! We asked for the sauce on the side to dip a portioned amount rather than having it on top. The ahi tuna tacos were smaller but tasted great and fres ... read more

Enjoyed a Friday evening with my wife, dining outdoors in a small, quiet, somewhat cozy, seating area along the side of the restaurant. We had a wonderful waitress-she was really on the ball and didn’t rush us, was very attentive, and knew her timing, i.e. how to take and place our orders, somewhat of a rarity these days. She let u ... read more

A nice mid-afternoon lunch during COVID. They’re doing things right here, although I question if the tables are all truly six feet apart- I know the table next to us was only about four feet away.

Outdoor seating area in the side alley was great, and much nicer and quieter than the noisy street front. Food was very good but not great. I had my favorite Twice Cooked Cuban Steak but they changed the recipe and no longer include the green sauce, so was pretty dry. The scallops were fantastic.

I had the BEST dinner at the Metro the other night. Β Appetizer was AMAZING - lump crabmeat on top of delicious artichokes with a fabulous sauce. Β Probably the single best app I've ever had!
Then onto the rack of lamb. Β Cooked to perfection and the crust on the outside was delicious.
Made for a great birthday dinner - and loved
