This was a birthday request from my wife. It was a return visit that 4 of us celebrated.
Beginning with our drinks (Makers Mark Old Fashion) that were up there with the best ever had, our dinner was for the most part was outstanding.
Appetizers ordered were the Empanadas which were very tasty and Provoleta which was excellent. Three of us had their specialty, Churrasco, which was excellent and cooked to the requested temp. The filet ordered by my birthday wife was only disappointment, It was very dry. However the desserut she had (Chocolate Souffle) more than made up for it. The cheesecake was way above average and tiramisu was the best ever had. Our server was very attentive which made for a very enjoyable evening. Well worth the drive from Raleigh to Durham. The only reason not given a full 5 star is because of the dry filet

Had a business dinner meeting. The entree's were awesome. The filet was perfect at medium rare, the lamb chops and Churrasco were outstanding. Best of all was the Fettucine poricini, homemade noodles with mushrooms and it doesn't say it on the menu (truffle). We were fighting over it. And don't forget the bottle of red. We will be back.

Churrasco is great!
We ordered house salads with the steak - tender and great flavor. I prefer the sesame ginger vinaigrette.
Service was excellent, as always!
Do recomend reservations. Most tables were spoken for upon arrival.
Located on 9th street.. some street parking. There is a parking lot across the street - pay for parking during posted business hours.

Contrary to some of the negative reviews we found Metro 8 to be very decent. The steaks we ordered were well done, sizeable, and generally a good meal. I think you can skip the chorizo - it was terribly salty.
Service was attentive and the overall experience was good. I would actually recommend coming to this place - its not a top end steakhouse but it did fine for what we wanted!

Enjoyed a date night dinner on the back porch. Steaks were perfect and the service was excellent. We both had filet and shared the taramisu for dessert.
