We dined outside and the tables were spread out with all waitstaff wearing masks.
We had baked clams, veal chop, chicken parm all excellent!
It was nice to get out since this whole pandemic started. The service and food was great .
the inside layout was better than i expected. there was more than the required 6 feet
between people and i noticed when a table group left the staff jumped right in with cleaning and sanitizing.
I am a high risk senior and was very comfortable being inside.
Will be back soon.
food was very good, waiter good. issue with double charge on debit card. taking few days to resolve
The servers should have been wearing gloves for the safety of the customers.
Good service food was good as always
Food was hot to the table.

Good food served hot
Was seated at a table near restroom... waiter forgot about us...had to find him... terrible wait staff service. Have never experienced this before while dining at Meta.
Recommend not sitting at table for two near restroom.
Fanatic food. Great service. Had a great dinner with friends. Will definitely be back.
Meta has the best veal chop I have ever eaten. The service is good too. We went on a Saturday night and it was crowded and loud, but we still enjoyed everything.
from the host/ess to the wait staff, bus people and bar tender all treat you like a friend more than just a customer......seated on time with 8:00 reservations on a saturday night
and the food is delish (4 of us and all loved their dishes)!!
Waited at least 15 mins for someone to come to our table after being seated promptly. Two different waitstaff approached us and we were not sure who was to help. Asked for a vegan menu for one of us and after ordering twice food was delivered with cheese ravioli. 😬 manager came to our vegan friend and asked her if she wanted comped Baked clams??? Seriously a mess. Does he not know what’s vegan is even though they have a separate vegan menu???
We have been coming here since it opened as Sole. Wonderful then, and now as Meta Osteria, still wonderful.
The food was exceptional! Service was attentive and explained menu thoroughly. Will definitely come back here .
Always incredible food and impeccable service. Get the vegetable malfadine!
Food is always delicious. Staff very friendly and on the ball. A little pricey, but well worth it!
Good food beautifully presented; friendly wait staff; a wonderful local restaurant!
It is a great neighborhood gem!
Always reliable and good!
We always look forward to going there because the food and service are outstanding. One of our favorites restaurants!
We had reservations and we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant was really busy so the host came over to our table to take our drink order. He then took our order. I ordered a chicken milanese which was not on the menu. My wife ordered the pork tenderloin. Everything was great. And the chef/owner Bobby came over to the table to see how we liked everything. Love this place and look forward to going back.
Ladies night out! Good service food and wine!! Would definitely return!!!
Meta was great. Server Chris was very informative and efficient. Food was excellent. Highly recommend.
2 /14 Valentine’s Day dinner food was just ok presentation was excellent
Roberto the Maitre d' was outstanding. He had a European flair that is very hard to find
Food was excellent
Although I didn't ask on this visit, I would like to be able to switch certain items, for example, I would prefer pasta to risotto. It is possible that this is not an issue as it was in the past
I would definitely return and bring my friends
Outstanding service bu everyone. The appetizers , eggplant balls are tasty and light.
I ordered the rock fish without the crab crust as I have a shellfish allergy. It was cooked to perfection along with the vegetable risotto.
I would definitely recommend this establishment and I will e eating there again soon.
Very typical Long Island "Italian" food, bearing no relation to food in Italy.
Had a great dining experience here, food, service overall excellent and would return
I was very disappointed with my experience here tonight. First of all, our waiter was brand new. We had questions and he had to keep asking people. They should not have a brand new waiter working on a very busy night. We waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our food. They want to upcharge you for every little thing. We wanted Italian bread instead of the rolls they were going to charge us $3 for 3 pieces. Any other Italian restaurant gives it for free with the meal. Spaghetti or linguine comes with our meal but if you want garlic and oil sauce instead of marinara that's also $2 more. It's really ridiculous. The service was horrible. We arrived at 645pm and didn't leave until 850pm. The only good thing about the entire experience was Frank. He was the busboy but answered all of our questions and made recommendations. We love Frank! He would be an AWESOME waiter!!! I doubt if I will return anytime soon.
Delicious as always, excellent service.
Had a great meal at Meta on Saturday night - my husband had the duck and i had the rock fish - both dishes were excellent!!! We had the clams and shrimp appetizer - both were great as well. I cannot wait to go back!
The service was wonderful. Our waiter Chris could not have been Better. He helped us with our choices
and they were winners. We all had the fish special and were very happy with our choice. For dessert we
shared a Tartofu . The prices are fair and the portions are good. The owner kept coming over to see if we were happy. They did not rush us even though they needed the table. We will be back soon
great food and atmosphere. took us on time.
Never been disappointed
One of our favorite restaurants. Usually go every month.
