Best onion rings, the Ringside is a close second! Ridiculously strong wine list and I'm just talking about their WA selections. This is a classic steakhouse with all the trimmings. Had the ny strip cooked and seasoned to perfection.

Wow this place was amazing. They had over 50 types of whiskey alone. Have the Buffalo if you have the chance it is even better than the fancy expensive 3 meat option. When you are fine that don't forget to finish with Bananas Foster. In my opinion way better to eat on the bar side - just more fun. Oh... More

Thoroughly deserving of its no 1 ranking for steakhouse in Seattle (at time of writing). We had a fantastic time. The experience was excellent with very knowledgeable and engaging staff in regards to their food and the wines. The food was truly divine with all of us having no complaints at all. I'd definitely return if ever in Seattle again.

Everyone in our party commented how low the noise level was. We were seated a five person round table and we could carry out a regular conversation in which everyone could hear. We ordered drinks and the appetizer of the day. The wine menu is very good. There was a wine that suited everyone's taste. The bartender even made a... More

This restaurant screams old school steakhouse upon walking, but the menu offers more than meet the eye, a very nice touch & a stand-out point for its place in seattle's fine dining. The menu offers 4 different origins of beef- wagyu, classic dry age & two other rare Japanese beef. It probably has the most extensive cuts of wagyu I... More

Love steak, this is the place you want to go. Metropolitan knows nothing but excellence in everything they do from the rib eyes, the crab cakes to the blue cheese wedge.

We went to the Metropolitan Grill as part on an anniversary celebration. Food was wonderful, and we had a great time. Roger was our waiter. He was attentive and very engaging and entertaining. My partner was delighted with the prime rib. I had the king salmon, perfectly done. I prefer it medium rather than the trendy medium rare to rare,... More

Everything about this eating establishment is Spectacular! From the valet parking (must do), making reservations, service, food and beverage - first class! Our entire evening was what you would expect from a top tier eating establishment. The beverages and associated service including wine and hard liquor were magnificent! The food was out of this world, and again, the service was... More
