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.
Went there for Valentine's day, our reservations were at 7:30 PM, we finally got our dinner at 8: 45 PM. The steak was overdone in the middle. After waiting over an hour we weren't going to wait to get another steak. Way overbooked the night.
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.
You'll spend more here than most establishments; you get what you pay for. Considering the atmosphere and the service, not to mention the top-notch fare, it's 100% worth it. They have a ncie bar, too and a guess the DOW contest that's fun. I love the Met. 'Nuff said.
The Met is awesome. Although it's a nice, upscale steakhouse everyone feels welcome in the comfortable dining area. I always eat steak there, so I can't comment on the other aspects of the menu, but the steaks are cooked to perfection and of the best quality. The mashed potatoes are outstanding, you are a fool to get the baked potato. Get a reservation, because the restaurant can get extremely busy and you don't want to miss out on the best steaks in Seattle.
Went for a birthday party for my grandfather here. The whole family was there and they accomodated us quite nicely. The food was superb, my fav being the appetizer of steamed clams, followed by the portehouse steak. Best steak i have ever eaten.
This is a nice place but not for the hoity toity, which suited me just fine. If you want to sit down have a scotch and sink your teeth into a gosh darn good steak this is for you. It's expensive, so if you're not on a company expense account, be warned. You better be hungry and be prepared for the $50 per person bill or more. I would say its worth it though.
I went to the Met with my fiance for Valentine's Day. The service was unacceptable for a restaurant of that class. We waited about 15 minutes before a waiter came to take our order, and rarely check up on us. I ordered a caesar salad that never came. The waiter was much more interested in the tables that had 3+ people and ordered many drinks. To cap it all off, the bill was handed to my future wife and not myself.
I must admit the food was exceptional, but not worth the poor service.
This is one of the best places to eat in Seattle - be you a visitor or resident! This is the must place for the social event and food. The atmosphere is lively and people are extremely friendly. Always busy. Check out the stock broker board :)
The best dish was a creation from one of the chef's which appeared to be a shrimp gumbo (no longer on the menu). Fantastic!! The steak...well every cut appears to taste as heaven had created them ...then placed them at every table at the Met. I will always return to have a meal at this establishment. My wish ... that I still worked across the street from the Met and still resided in Seattle area (now a San Diego resident). :(
