We had a good dinner here. First we were wondering whether the restaurant was open, because it looked empty and indeed there were not many guests - but our dinner was very good, with friendly service. I had a tasty burger.

We came to the Met grill after waiting at Earls Bankers Hall for a half hour with no service. As soon as the four of us walked in we were greeted and seated and brought waters. The manager Jim took us and served us the whole night. Just said he was helping out the bartender. First off the Manager Jim... More

Stopped in here while on Stephen Ave. Had an amazing Old Fashioned, even better than some I had in the southern states. We got the oreo cookies and creme cheese cake and it was some of the best I've ever had. The prices on drinks, especially wine are a little pricey.

We were tired from shopping for several hours and needed a nice place to rest and rejuvenate. This was a perfect place to do that. The... More

Loved the steak here. Jim, the manager is a really friendly guy and goes out of the way to fix things if you arent a 100% satisfied. I have been coming here since 2006, and will continue to do so.

Downtown Calgary , surrounded by other bars and restaurants but a little quieter than its neighbors. Got a decent size round bar in the middle and large comfortable round tables with large screens everywhere in the restaurant.

Mistakes were made on the meals and the corrections were never made. Drink never made it to our table. Our server disappeared mid-shift never... More

Despite the bar being quiet the service was really slow. The server didn't know what drinks were on the happy hour advertised. We were charged 50% more than we should have been, so had to get the bill corrected. I would recommend checking your bill carefully if visiting.
