    Three of us went to Metro 8 to celebrate a birthday. All the food was great. We shared the chorizo and provoleta, which were both great. One of us had the strip steak, one the ribeye special, and one the Churrasco. They were all very good. The ribeye was thinner than ribeyes often are, which was a little disappointing, although it was very tasty. This was my second visit in a month, and I'm going back soon. I've had the Churrasco both recent visits and plan to order it again -it's that good. My husband asked me to remind him that's what he wants next time we go.

    The 16 oz churrasco skirt steak is incomparable. Served medium rare, this steak comes to the table seared on the outside and dark red on the inside. This is *not* an easy trick for the thin cut of meat -- but metro8 has mastered the art, and the steak cuts like crusted butter. This is a steak to savor in small bites because the flavors of the beef, perfectly balanced with metro8's seasoning, are intensely concentrated. This is a steak to share because half of a 16 oz steak has enough flavor to carry you through an entire meal if you slow down enough to pay attention. And metro8 has many well-chosen wines to pair with it. (If it weren't for the character limit for OpenTable reviews, I'd compliment their other mains and sides as well.) Service as metro8 is just right, with staff who are professional but not pretentious, and friendly but not distracting. Their highest priority is to make sure you are getting what you need, exactly the way you want it. (I feel like they're constantly hiding a little bit of anxiety that they *might* be missing something important *to you*. That's how much they care <3) The restaurant is a treasure and I'm so grateful that it's here.

    The food was amazing as well as the service. Place is a little loud inside, so no quite romantic dinner, but food and service made up for it. Best ribeye I have had in a while, and the bread is delicious.

    Love Metro 8! Elliot makes a DELICIOUS chocolate martini & I loved that he remembers my husbands go to order:) My husbands go to every single time is the skirt steak and they never disappoint. This time I decided to go with the filet mignon which was mouth watering! Can’t wait to return in a couple of weeks because I know my son will choose it as his birthday dinner!

    Venue has parking so it made it easier to get in. The host was welcoming and kind. As soon as we were seated we were graciously given a menu and a wine and cocktail menu. Our server was attentive and friendly. I ordered the tuna, which was a disappointment. It had a fishy texture and taste. It wasn’t that fresh. The asparagus seemed that it wasn’t cooked very well either. I don’t mind my vegetables with a bit of a crunchy texture. But the asparagus was hard and it seemed as though it was just placed in a microwave and served. The dessert was tiramisu, which in my opinion the serving was way too much for one person. A smaller portion would have been ideal. However, it was light and sweet, which is exactly what tiramisu is supposed to be. I will return for the steak, which is what they specialize in. Hopefully the experience will be better.

    We had an amazing experience. We made reservations prior and were able to avoid any wait time. We had asked for a secluded table when we made reservations, and they were able to accommodate our request. We had a great table which happened to be next to their beautiful Christmas tree, which added a nice magical touch to our experience. We had the provoleta and chorizo for our appetizer and both were delicious. My husband had the cowboy ribeye and said it was the best he has had. So tender and juicy and seasoned perfectly. I had their popular Churrasco steak, and it was equally amazing. Their sides are a little basic but still very tasty. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the food. The service was great, and the whole staff works together to take care of you. It was refreshing to see. We would definitely make our way back.
