About The Metropolitan Grill

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 steaks are definitely top notch but they balance the menu with other fare including seafood and great sandwiches. For lunch, I had the steak sandwich with fries.

This was our second attempt at Metropolitan Grill. The second try was worse than the first. Our server, Diana, started out friendly, and while she saw to the tables around us who were seated after us first, we were okay with it, but whe we wanted to split a meal, things changed in a hurry. She questioned our decision making asking if we realized that the 8 oz filet was small. I guess I assume an 8 oz filet is....well, 8 oz. I have ordered one before. We ordered an appetizer of onion rings. She wanted to know if we wanted soup or salad and when we declined, she seemed more miffed. Our bread came and was plopped down in a hurry. After a good amount of time, and the people around us were eating their appetizers and salads we are wondering if she perhaps forgot our onion rings. Soon, here comes the entree with no onion rings. When asked about it, Diana says 'it is not my fault, it is the kitchen's fault'. Frankly, assuming the kitchen forgot (I'm not convinced of this), it is the servers responsibility to follow up with them and remind them that her order of onion rings is not ready. Halfway through the entree, finally the onion rings come. The onion rings themselves were awesome. Probably the best I have ever had. The steak was good....slightly 'blue' in the center when we ordered medium, but we were afraid to speak to Diane any more at this point, and let it slide. We ordered horseradish sauce with the steak which never came. Again, we were intimidated into not mentioning it. Finally, as with our last experience here, the baked potato is pre made and reheated. This makes for a hard, lumpy lukewarm baked potato. Needless to say, we won't be returning.

They cooked my $63 steak wrong twice. First time it was super rare when I ordered medium and second time it was medium well and charred on top. Also my side was served cold. I was expecting the best meal of my adult life and was very disappointed. It was my birthday too :(\nCrab cake appetizer was good though.

Great food and a Seattle classic dining experience most suited for special occasions. I mentioned when making the reservation we were celebrating a family birthday and again to our server but nothing special was done on the part of the restaurant. I was expecting at least something small like a plate with 'Happy Birthday' written out or a small complimentary dessert or drink for my mother who was the celebrant. Nada! Disappointing given the very high price point.

Absolutely the finest steakhouse of ALL the steakhouses I have been in the US (and that numbers dozens including all the 'best'). Their Delmonico is orgasmic. The wait staff is knowledgeable and perfect. It is what I miss most about moving away from Seattle. It exceeded my very high expectations when I booked for a visit for the first time back in years.

I absolutely love eating at the Met. If you enjoy great steak, you can't go wrong. We split a salad and a Waygu 20 oz cut. It was plenty of food and delicious. The atmosphere is inviting and the service second-to-none. While it is not an inexpensive place to eat, it's worth the splurge. For those who want to save a few pennies, go for lunch. The prices are lower and the food is every bit as good.

Our dinner for a party of ten was a retirement dinner for one of our managers. The service started out well but once we ordered entrees and dinner was served we were neglected. As the host, I dine out a lot and this was a big disappointment. I don't believe my/our steaks were prime meat. At least 1/4 of my 'prime' rib steak was unchewable. The quality of the meat was a big disappointment for one of Seattle's 'Prime' steakhouses.

Been to the Metropolitan Grill a few times before. Several years ago I took a friend for his Birthday and bought him the Tomahawk steak for $100. It looked amazing and tasted great. We were all very pleased. We went back on Saturday (February 18, 2017) and I got the same Tomahawk steak (big long rib bone). It was less ounces than before and cost $120. I was ok with that since I was expecting it to be amazing. Boy! Was I disappointed... The taste was just not there as it looked like the steak lacked some of the marbling that I remembered from previous visit. There were four of us and each got a different steak. Just not impressed with the taste & portion size. Sadly, I would say their steaks are way over valued and there are many better steak houses in the Seattle area where you can get a better tasting steak for a better value. Sad...

Past glory has now been replaced by uneven outcomes. We ordered two steaks - both were $70 failures - one over cooked and one under cooked. The Copper River salmon was the size of a fish stick and lacked the texture and density of CR salmon. Not sure what it was, but looked like early season Silver and was cooked mushy. The scalloped potatoes were stone cold. And, the Brussel sprouts were basically raw and far too large. Add in the 300% mark up on wine and our $500 tab for three people was a total fail. Considering this was once a great place, it was doubly sad to see such a sad spectacle. The service was good, but could not overcome what was otherwise downright pitiful.

Came here for my 5th anniversary.\nWaiter gave us creme brûlée after finding out it was our anniversary which was very thoughtful. My steak was mostly delicious and best steak I ever had. We like our steak well done. Our steak was kind of fatty and in the middle it was very red so I had to cut around it. The parts that were well done were a amazing but I was disappointed the middle wasn't well done. Other than that our service and experience was 10/10.

We celebrated here a few nights ago and weren't disappointed! We had oysters to start. I really liked the gremolata type mignonette. I had the smaller prime rib with a side of asparagus. I added a lobster tail since I'd never had one. Pricey for what it was, but again, lobster novice here, so I tried it! My husband has the Chicago cute wagyu. It was delicious! We didn't have room for dessert! The restaurant is quite noisy, so if you're looking for quiet romantic ambiance, maybe go private dining? Overall, we enjoyed our meals very much and will probably go again for our next celebration!

We go to the every now and then to compare it against our local steakhouse (JaK's). The thing that stands out at the Met is the service. They are very professional, from the greeters, to the servers, to the wine personnel, etc...they truly know what they're doing and they don't rush you. We all had steaks (one Wagu filet, and 3 filet mignons) and thought they were about a 7 out of 10. Two of the filets were 8 oz, and were cut pretty thin which was disappointing (it appeared that they cut the larger 13 oz steak in half horizontally). The Wagu filet was really tender but also not quite as good as expected. The salads and various potatoes we got were very good, and the chocolate lava cake we had for dessert was very good, but didn't have a scoop of vanilla ice cream (thought that was a little odd).\n\nAll in all, the Met is a good spot for a business dinner or to take friends too if they want to eat downtown, and you have the budget for it. Next time we'll order something other than the filets and see if that makes a difference.

The Metropolitan Grill was fine....but I had read that it was one of the top Steak Houses in the US. I am not sure about that. I recently ate at Gordon Ramsey's Steak and I believe the quality was better at Ramsey's. But, to be fair I ordered prime rib at Metropolitan and a filet at Ramsey's so it isn't comparing apples to apples. The prime rib was on the tough side. The prime rib cost $43 and the filet cost $65 so unfortunately that was the deciding factor for me. Our waiter was charming, efficient and pleasant. Ambience typical of traditional steak houses.

I have been going here at least once per year for the last several years. It really seems to have gone downhill the last couple years. Good is still great and servers are usually on point. However the last time a hostess was extremely rude because we asked a couple times how's much longer or wait would be. We had a reservation and was waiting for over 45 minutes so yes we were hungry and getting antsy waiting. No reason to be rude to us for asking. Luckily another hostess seated is and apologized but the damage was already done. I do not think I'll be returning anymore since I can get the same quality food elsewhere for the same if not less in price. Plus I'll never have to see the rude hostess again cause I'll probably go off on her if I see her again.

I had a reservation for a business dinner last Tuesday night for six. My client decided to bring along 3 other people from the board (surprise). I was of course thrown off when I arrived and seen that we had a total of nine instead of six who the reservations were made for. I stepped to the hostess desk and explained my situation. The hostess immediately said 'your reservation is for 6 not 9, I can't help you'. Understanding that it was my problem not hers, that the party increased, I asked if there was any other options that she could offer, she said 'No, you can try someplace else'. I was so very disappointed, not so much in the fact that they could not accommodate me, but in how she responded and handled the situation. We ended up sitting our clients (7 of them) at a table and My boss and I ended up eating in the bar (waiting for our clients to finish dinner so that we could pay for it). We spent almost $2,000 at the Met that night. It would have been nice to have had better customer service from the hostess.

We were from out of town for a my wife's birthday, and we both remarked that this dining experience was probably the best we have ever had. Todd, Lance and Kevin made us feel part of the family, helped us out with wine since we knew very little, and went over the top with what can only be described as Excellent Service. I would have given them 7 stars for that. \n\nThe food was very, very good. Next time we'll probably get a different cut of meat as what we got was nice, but not over the top crazy good like we were expecting. Probably try the bone in rib-eye... \n\nI never take the time to leave reviews, but this team deserved it. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Great food, great service. But, I think it's getting too popular - to be as good a its reputation. Some of the 2-top seating areas are way too small (and tight) - and I'm not a big person. Maybe it's the way we were dressed (business casual), or we didn't tip the hostess. But, I was not happy with the seating arrangements. It was similar to 'bar seating'. And, there was an entire row of these seats.\nEnough about the seating. The wine list is extensive, including half-bottles. The food selections (if you like steak) are amazing. Now, there are options for non-steak diners, too.\nI'll definitely be going back, but not for the 'diner seating'. And, there are better steak houses in Seattle.

Food took a very long time to come out (I arrived at 6:15 and after ordering within 20 minutes after arriving, the food came out later than 7:35). The delmonico cut was extremely tough and was a chore to begin cutting through. The side of mash tasted well over-cooked. The porterhouse cut was pretty good though.

We have celebrated every anniversary at The Met since number 30; this was number 45. The Met is absolutely my most favorite place for a special night out. Restaurants of this quality must never have an off night and to my knowledge they never have, certainly as far as my experience goes. The other biggies in Seattle have all let us down at one time or another. We will come back to the Met again and again. I had let it be known to The Met that this night was special for my wife, dear friend and me. I can't believe how they cared for us, making us feel like we were the only ones there. They brought us special appetizers, fussed over our wine selection, fabulous menu recommendations that we absolutely could not refuse and of course a complimentary dessert in honor of the occasion accompanied by a wonderful dessert wine; all on them. We had requested to be seated in Bruno's section and we were. Bruno is the absolutely the best! Matr'D Craig stopped by to say hi (I suspect it was he that ordered up all the special things for us). I asked, of Craig, a very special and secret favor for a future date and he had Aaron, head of wines at The Met stop by to see if he could accommodate my special request. We have a future date for that; I am so honored that they will look after me in this manner. What a wonderful evening; fabulous treatment, equally fabulous food and wine. I only wish I could dine there every week!

I have dined for years at this restaurant and have always enjoyed everything about it. This time was a little disappointing. EVERYTHING was warm....not hot. I ordered French Onion soup which should have been left in the oven longer. The cheese is supposed to be crusty but mine was soft and just melted and soup itself was just warm. Our steaks were properly cooked but also just warm when brought to the table and the au jus the waiter brought to pour over the steak was luke warm which made the steak even cooler. We ordered a side of mushrooms and like everything else....just warm. I was so wanting something hot that I ordered an after dinner Spanish coffee and even asked that it be hot when it arrives. The waiter did bring me a nice and hot Spanish coffee.....in a glass ....that was too hot to pick up. I then flagged down a 'Suit' and asked it my coffee could be served in a cup or glass with a handle so that I could enjoy it while it was hot. We get to Seattle a couple times a year and always make it a point to dine at the Met. I think next time we will expand our horizons as there are many good high end steak houses in Seattle.

The food was good, our server James was excellent, attentive and friendly. We were celebrsting my son's 30th birthday. James picked up on this and made sure to bring him a birthday dessert. The only issue we had was with the seating. I made reservations back in early October for new years eve. We were seated at the bottom of the stairs with booths all along both sides of the table and it was uncomfortable to be sitting in the middle of the room. We asked for a booth and the hostess took us back up to the front door and sat us in the coldest booth in the restaurant. Every time the door opened a gust of cold air hit the table. After donning our coats and realizing it was not going to get any better, we asked our waiter if we could move in one booth and he moved us. I don't think the hostess cared one way or the other if we were comfortable. She wasn't happy that we asked for a booth. Very disappointing especially since we made reservations so far in advance.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal and enjoyed our time there. Our server was great and he brought desert on the house for no apparent reason (we did tell him it was our anniversary) other than our occasion which was unexpected and left us with a lasting impression. Everything was fantastic but that silly $10 desert that was complimentary is the thing that stands out, it's the unexpected that people remember and it's what I will remember next time I'm making a reservation for a special occasion. Thank you!

Great service, personable waiters and delicious food. Arguably, the best restaurant in Seattle.

We sat for 20 minutes and no service, because the servers were confuse who was responsible for our table 😴

I was very impressed with the attention to detail. I happened to drop my hat and scarf as I was leaving and the waiters were so attentive. They returned them to me so quickly. Now that's above and beyond on their service!!!

I enjoyed the food and the service. I have been to many steak houses not only in Seattle but around America and the world. This place is good.

Tenderloin was a bit tough. Service was great. Overall nice, but the $72 steak disappointed.

The service was timely, waitstaff very knowledgeable and kind, and the food was delicious. We even showed up an hour early due to coming from Olympia, and they got us in within 5 minutes! Our waiter gave my husband the pick of his after meal snack complementary for his birthday!

The service was top notch, very friendly yet professional. Our beverages were replenished often, and our water glasses were never empty. My only complaint was that my meal was served luke warm and lacked in flavor. Three of us ordered this same entree and all of us felt the same. The other four people in our party loved their selection

It was my first time to dine here. My friend, on the other hand, has been dining here for almost 20 years and raves about the food. Our server was polite and warm. For appetizers, we ordered crab cakes and lobster bisque. Both were perfect-- great flavor, texture and temperature. However, 5 minutes into enjoying our appetizers, another server comes to our table and served us our our main course. We both ordered medium rare NY Strip Loin. We were both stunned because we were not yet even halfway through our appetizers. I thought to myself, 'am I being rushed?' Our server was still attending to his other tables so we decided to wait until he checks on us again. Once he came to our table, the steak was already cold since it has sat there on the side for more than 10 minutes while we finished our appetizers. We told him what happened and he brought the steaks back to the kitchen. Sadly, both steaks were just re-plated and I assume was probably reheated or blasted in the salamander. My friend who has dined with you for years said that she was shocked that the chef did not fire new steaks on the grill. It was truly disappointing since it felt like I was eating leftover steak that was cooked the night before. I think our server tried to make things right but honestly, the entire experience for me was just ruined. It was my first time to dine with you, and of all days, on Christmas Eve. My friend and I left with such an underwhelming feeling. We paid $150 for both steaks that was comparable to a $20 steak from Applebee's. Maybe I'll come back for dinner next time but it'll take a while to be convinced that it's worth trying The Met Grill for a second time.

Going to the Metropolitan Grill has become an annual tradition for our family, around the holidays. It's nice to treat ourselves to such an exquisite experience, to celebrate an end to a successful year!

Our family party of 8 spent Christmas Eve at The Metropolitan Grill while on vacation. Our server, Michael, took excellent care of us and we enjoyed a wonderfully relaxed evening full of good food and drinks. The cost is definitely something we'd reserve for a special occasion, which it was, and for that we cannot recommend it enough!

The four of us were there on a Sat. night and the first thing our waiter said is we have 500 reservations for tonight . Okay , sorry that your night is so busy . One of us has been going there after the game with 7 friends for over 10 years spending thousands of dollars each time . Yes it's true that the reservation was under another name , but when my friend mentioned that he always came here after the game and sat at that table with his friends , would it have killed someone to at least acknowledge him and say nice to see you again ?\nThe prime rib was cold , the lobster was barely warm and the mashed potatoes could have been used as cement. When we mentioned that the potatoes were cold our waiter brought us a bowl of fresh potatoes but never removed the old ones. In fact the table was crowded with glasses and plates that had not been removed . The second bottle of wine arrived after the entrees were served. The second bottle of water took equally long. All in all a bad meal . Poor food , poor service , but the worst of all was that nobody bothered to ever acknowledge my friends' years of support .
