The Metropolitan Grill
The moment you step into the Metropolitan Grill, you know you have entered a classic steakhouse. Guests enter through tall mahogany doors to be greeted by tuxedo clad Maitre D's. Cuts of beef are showcased in a glass display in the front entryway. Framed photographs of celebrities, sports heroes and local politicians, all frequent visitors to The Met, line the walls. At the Metropolitan Grill, the focus is on the Prime beef, American and Japanese Wagyu. Steaks are seared over the high heat of the "Iron Wood of the World," imported mesquite charcoal, ensuring the most tender, juicy steaks available. Metropolitan Grill Chefs personally select each cut that is served to guests. The Metropolitan Grill's award-winning wine list showcases the definitive steakhouse selection of premium West Coast red wines, with special emphasis on Cabernets, Merlots and Meritage.
Steak - something you'd expect to be perfect at this price point. Not so for Metro Grill. Steak was tough and dry. Good thing they provided a bowie knife to cut the 50 year old heffer with. Shelled out over $200 for 3 people. Not worth it. Go to Outback - you'll get a better steak and spend a third of what I did.
The Met is simply delicious. The valet, hostesses, waiter and Maître d' were polite and very welcoming. The food and service were excellent. For appetizers we had calamari. For my dinner I had the Prime Delmonico which was amazing, along with creamed spinach and to die for garlic mashed potatoes. For dessert I had the chocolate lava flourless cake, sin on a plate. It was a relaxing dinner. I was treating my aunt to dinner and we ate and conversed at a leisurely pace. The only draw back to our dinner was the noise level at the restaurant and the fact the valet closes at 10 p.m.
They made my two favorite drinks perfectly: my kir royale with dinner and my cappuccino with my dessert. If you love wine, they have an extensive and impressive wine list.
While the met is expensive it's worth every penny. The food and service is exceptional and I can't wait to go back again! Simply delicious!
