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.

We requested a modification of something that wasn’t on the menu and the waiter was very accommodating. Service was excellent. It’s one of our favorite places to dine.

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.

This was our first try at indoor dining, having had our first vaccination. The distancing was good and we sat in an area with a very high ceiling, so the air quality felt fine. We enjoyed the cocktails...prepared perfectly. Best calamari I’ve had in a while! We shared the ahi tuna entree. Delicious. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the service was fine.

Real nice find just outside downtown Princeton. My wife and I started with the French onion soup and Arugula salad. The soup hit the spot on a cold night and salad was refreshing but a little over dressed. For our mains we enjoyed the Porcini Linguine (minus sausage) and the Chicken Francaise. The linguine was the highlight of the meal. Super rich and a nice background flavor of truffle. My chicken was good with a buttery lemon sauce but the portion size was small (two thin breaded cutlets) with a little pile of angle hair pasta. We look forward to making our way back in the spring and summer so we can enjoy some time on their patio.

Metro North is one of the best restaurants in the area, lovely for a family get together, friends or a romantic dinner. The ambience is welcoming and beautiful, the food is incredible and the servers are warm and knowledgeable. The seafood dishes are all amazing. We have had the clams casino appetizer twice and it is extraordinary both times, the flavors of the chopped clams blended so well with the other ingredients with a light touch. Definitely a must do!
