Steak
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.

The food as always was fabulous. I also enjoyed the lower prices on the lunch menu. Key lime tart was a great way the end our meal.

This is the favorite old time steak house for Seattle. We were disappointed with the seasoning on our steaks. It was way too salty. Our steaks were also quite gristly. Hope if we get a chance to come again we will have a different experience. Our service was fabulous!!!!!

We had our sons 34th birthday party. Everything was excellent from the hostess to our favorite waiter Noi. If I could change anything, it would be sitting in the middle of the floor.

Been to The Met many times. First time I’ve said, food was just “ok”. Steak was good, scallop potatoes were warm, not hot, and wild mushrooms were...ok. Great friendly service, dessert was amazing (Carrott Cake). Drinks above average. Overall, a B+

It was as expected except for wagyu strip. Probably one on the worst cuts of meat I have had in a while.

The Met always delivers. When you’re there you feel like royalty. You can’t beat the food and the service is both utterly professional and welcoming at the same time. Our server, Tyler, was fantastic. Our Server Assistant, who’s name I didn’t catch, was also right on point. A great lunch with my wife and her parents.

We were having a reunion dinner with a niece and nephew and they were wanting to eat here
The experience was somewhat underwhelming
Service was kind of hit or miss and we felt passed over all night
The Steaks were a bit salt forward and the Porterhouse was more like a T-bone and not a great char like the loin cap and the wagyu filet others had
Sides were ok just did not really pop
We shared a piece of 9 layer cake bit dry and icing too sweet
Not sure if we will return

I made a special request in my reservation, and the staff honored the request without question! I had low expectations that the request would be even noticed. Service cannot get much better than that!

I used to love to go to the Metropolitan Grill. It had been a few years since I had been there and this time I took important clientele with me. I shared how wonderful my past dining experiences had been and stated that this was my favorite place to eat in the United States. I enjoyed going there because of the ambiance, the level of attire, the wait staff, and the food. This time they were letting in people in shorts and t-shirts and sandals and the noise level was extremely high. The food was good but certainly not worth the amount of money that I paid for it. I was so disappointed and embarrassed after extolling the positive attributes of this restaurant to my clients. It is doubtful that I will ever take anyone there again.

Service is amazing it’s a Seattle vibe that doesn’t make you feel stuffy or uncomfortable. Attire from shorts and t-shirts to full up business suits all treated the same. Steaks are great, I’d say top 5 In the area and drinks are worth the money. Had a great time

Everything was great except for our waiter. He was knowledgeable enough and cordial but he disappeared for long periods of time. We had to wait over 25 minutes after we were finished before he remembered to return and ask if we were ready for our check.

Too much dressing on the spinach salad. Not tasty at all. The steaks were barely warm, the potatoes were cold and the steak quality for the price was very poor. We were very disappointed. The server was great and the creme brûlée was very good.

My wife and I ate at the Metropolitan Grill about 20 years ago and thoroughly enjoy it. However visiting their this past week we were thoroughly disappointed. The food was so-so and the cost was extremely high. We'll never go back.

Anniversary dinner so we split the “long bone” ribeye, which was cooked perfectly and both tender and flavorful.
