Pleasant ambiance with holiday feel bolstered by a musician sprinkling his playlist with merry favorites. With the music in the background we were still able to enjoy a long conversation. Burgers were enjoyable but appetizers more memorable. Will return.

This is not our first time here. Our table was immediately available, we were greeted warmly, our order taken promptly. The food was excellent, prepared as ordered. People raves about the hamburger and hand sliced fries, same with the pulled brisket crepe. Great neighborhood eatery.

Met Bistro never disappoints, from the service to the ambiance you feel right at home! The roasted chicken is second to none, that my go to, but every item is delicious! Live music on weekends is always a nice touch! 👍👍

This restaurant is outstanding. Bill is a fantastic host. Food was delicious. My significant other had the salmon while I had the duck. the other couple with us had the salmon and the filet mignon. They had nothing but praise for the service and food. Have no problem recommending this place!!!

Metropolitan has become our new favorite. We somehow missed this gem until we decided to explore some new spots in our neighborhood. Food is outstanding, service is very good- it tends to be a little on the loud side when sitting inside-but not so much that it would stop you from going- we love it when the weather allows for sidewalk seating. Always enjoy this spot!

Best place to go in Sea Cliff and draws people from miles around. Definitely worth the trip and listening to the musical talent on certain nights.

GREAT EXPERIENCE --- A 'Cheers' bar ambiance mixed with a Parisian bistro feeling. Lobster sliders and fish tacos were perfect for a summer meal - hosts couldn't have been nicer or more efficient - and price was very reasonable! ALL GOOD!

Very good ambiance and food was good. However, the waiter never came back to our table after our initial order. I would have had another drink during dinner if we could find him. We also had to tell the water girl 3 separate times that we needed refills. Besides the service, we were happy
