Everyone's meal was excellent. Food came out timely, hot and delicious.
Staff was friendly and capable, working hard to keep up with a busy day despite being short staffed.
Metro North always does a consistently good job.

What a great find near Princeton University. Excellent food, service was quick and friendly, perhaps the only miss were the house special cocktails, but that's a quibble. Very happy--and they have a spacious outdoor patio.

Food was excellent. They had a reduced menu, I was unaware of it so that was disappointing but understandable in the current climate.

I was shocked at how bad of an experience we had. Our server took a while to come up to us with a drink menu, and the second she handed it to us, she asked what we wanted for a drink. Or appetizer came out and was consumed before we could even order a drink, and my wine was completely stale and disgusting. On top of that, our server lost our credit card when we paid the bill. She returned the receipt for us to sign without the card in it. When we tried to scan the inside floor on our way out for it, the manager was rude and yelled that we weren't allowed to stand at the bar (which we were not doing). The food is also completely over priced. I will likely never go back.

Metro North offers both indoor and outdoor dining. We sat outside, well spaced from other tables and a heater available. I like seeing the Dinky train going by periodically. Very Princeton. The Manchego salad and the Ahi Tuna Wonton were both delicious.

Everything was fantastic from start to finish. Felt very safe and clean, especially during these unprecedented times. Had the ahi tuna wontons and mussels bianco for appetizers - absolutely Devine! Entree was the butter fish and crab francaise - words cannot even describe how amazing it was. One of the best places in Princeton by far!

We have been looking forward to dining at Metro North for some time as the reviews have been generally very positive. Overall we were disappointed as the food was just ok, the service was poor and the prices were inflated. The prices I would be ok with especially considering the current issues with seating and maximum occupancy etc., but the service for every course was very slow and the server was unfriendly and didn't want to be there. We are glad we finally got a chance to try it but there are better options in Princeton.

The food was so amazing 🤩 that I had to tell our server that the chef gets a special compliment. Something I never do. We loved everything about this restaurant from the decor all the way down to the food. The staff was very friendly will definitely go visit again. Get the wings back on the menu and you had a customer for life.
