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.

Might recommend. Some food outstanding. Some, like chateaubriand at $140 for 2 people not as good. Too much seasoning. Couldn't enjoy flavor of the meat.

We usually enjoy The Met experience on special occasions, this one being our 43rd Anniversary. As in the past, an evening at The Met is just that; an experience. You get pampered, but not intruded on, the ambiance is exciting yet totally relaxing, and the food is amazing. The person serving us, Marla, was someone we had in the past for a Christmas gathering with our children. And it was like being served by a good friend you've known for a long while. Everyone from the person seating us, to the wine sommelier, to all the other people stopping by the table just to pour some more wine or to remove an empty appetizer plate, or to "dress" a baked potato were there when needed, and not when not needed. It made you feel that all of those people were there just to wait on you. An amazing evening and total dining experience!

The accommodated our request for a booth which was nice. Marla was our server. She is really outstanding and makes the experience even better. The food quality and service including the wine service are a notch above. Wine glasses are immaculately clean, which heightens the wine experience. Pricing is commensurate with outstanding quality food and service.

We arrived early and were seated right away. The wait staff were attentive and not overly pushy or intrusive. The head waiter for our table, Ms. Seeley, was fantastic. She answered our questions, gave us great advise which made the meal wonderful. We started with the Crab Cocktail, which was more than enough for two. We then went to soups of Lobster Bisque and French onion. Both were hot, fresh and really good. Could have had a meal of that, but no, we went on to the steak, potatoes and asparagus. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and plenty to take home.

Overall, the night was a huge success. The food great, the service outstanding and we will be back. Thanks.

Another fantastic meal at the Met. Took my son there, early reservation as we were later headed to a concert, server picked up on this and ensured we were on time, this without rushing, stressing etc. She was friendly, knowledgeable and seemless. I had the Hokkaido Snow beef, a 6 ounce cut cooked med rare, extremely flavorful and tender. My son had the prime SR ribeye properly cooked and delicious. I believe this is my favorite steakhouse in Seattlle/Bellevue includes John Howie, Daniels, etc. Sides were excellent along with the Australian lobster tail I added to the "turf". What a night, Nick Mason and a Saucerful of Secrets and a fantastic meal, highly recommend this restaurant for flavor, ambiance, selection, service.

Service was great. Wish the table location was better or that we would have been seated in a booth (ours was a free floating table in the center of a bunch of booths). Especially since it was a birthday dinner which we made reservations for a week prior.

I had the NY strip steak. It was grilled to perfection but 1/2 of the way through there was an odd taste. I went to the other end of the steak and it was worse. Tasted like it had been grilled atop of fish. I was unable to get the waitress' attention. Since I was entertaining clients, I just left the rest. . For $63 - not a great meal for sure.

This was my first time dining at The Metropolitan Grill and it was everything I hoped it would be. The service was perfect - our server was intuitive to our needs without being intrusive to our meal. The food itself was amazing; we had the crab cakes and artichoke hearts and both were delicious. For our main course we ordered the chateaubriand which is prepared tableside and that was incredible to watch. It was the most perfectly cooked filet I've ever had - absolutely worth the price in my opinion. The sides were ok - nothing special (mashed potatoes and the brussel sprouts). We ordered crème brulee for dessert and it was very good, again not anything overly special but it was very good and we ate it all. Their wine list is extremely impressive - we enjoyed a nice Syrah and a Cab blend - both were by the glass and were VERY good. I was surprised by how loud the restaurant was - when we arrived and were seated there were maybe 3 other tables occupied in the section, however, by the end of our meal every table to was full and it was very loud. We could have conversation in our booth but I can't imagine being seated at a center table - that was the ONLY downside to the entire evening but because it wasn't really crowded until towards the end of our meal I can't really count that as a negative for our visit. If you are wanting a more intimate/quiet experience, come earlier than 7pm. We loved the experience overall and we will definitely be back for a special occasion.

The prime rib was dry and tough . The fried artichoke hearts were so heavily battered that it was impossible to taste the artichokes. An extremely expensive disappointment.
