This place is a Seattle landmark and my boyfriend has wanted to come for a long time. It's quite expensive, but I finally caved and brought him for his birthday. This is a steakhouse by design, tables are massive, lighting is old timey, etc. The atmosphere is not exactly romantic, and I noticed a weird amount of men eating together.... More

A superb meal of crab cakes, salad, the tenderest steaks cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes, root veggies, flambéd apple pie and impeccable service. The room is beautiful with lots of old wood and old scotch. We had a great meal, with excellent company. Thank you Metropolitan Grill!

I can say hands down the best restaurant I've ever been to with the best service I've ever had. Waitstaff was very attentive, knowledge, and passionate about the food; I never found them overbearing. Our waiter was particularly friendly and had a wealth of knowledge about all the meat. I've been to a lot of advertised high end restaurants that... More

I took a couple of my staff here for a thank you lunch, and it was decadently delicious, with outstanding service. This steak house has been operating for some fifty plus years, and the walls are lined with photos of the happy celebrities who come to it. The food is rich and delicious even at lunchtime, the tables are jammed... More

I love eating here. The ambiance, the food, the service. Had lunch there yesterday and except for the slightly over-salted burger (my friend's was overly salty as well), it was very good! It didn't ruin the burger but is worth mentioning. This was a special Christmas week lunch with my friend and I, and we had been looking forward to... More

A real steakhouse. Service was bad the night attended it was a birthday party but I realized this happens to the best of restaurants. Very expensive but aren't all good steakhouses.

I have visited the Metro Grille before and it was marvelous, but this last visit was even better. My wife and I shared the 20 oz. bone in rib eye and when it came and served at our table, I couldn't believe how wonderful it tasted. It was prepared as we asked, was hot and tasted perfect. Rib eyes are... More
