The food was delicious and atmosphere clean and well appointed. Our waiter was very good. It was loud because a band was playing in the bar.

We’ve been to this location/ restaurant dozens of times since we are locals but never to the Metro name. Food was delicious. The menu had a lot of great dishes to offer. My dirty martini was perfect after a long day of demo’ing the house so overall dinner at Metro did not disappoint. We ate inside and the restaurant had plenty of spaced out tables due to Covid. It was quiet and our waitress was lovely. Happy to visit again. Great job Metro!

Had a nice experience at Metro for dinner the other night. Granted, the dining room was empty due to social distancing... but nothing lacked as far as the quality of the service and the food.

My dad would always tell us growing up that a sign of a good restaurant was never having en empty water glass. Our glasses were never empty!

This is a great spot for a casual yet slightly upscale meal before an event at FTC just two doors down... or to meet someone getting off Metro North just 100 yards away.

Had an early dinner at the new Metro Kitchen and Bar.
Great menu choices. Food was delicious and we absolutely love the railroad theme motifs.

I ordered their cheese burger which was very good, medium rare. My wife had the poe boy sandwich that she enjoyed. She had to brown bag half of it, both orders came with fries which were very good also.

This was our first visit and we were very pleased with our choice. Food was tasty, service excellent, and as it was the day after New Years Day restaurant was quite empty and very conducive for conversation. Although we stayed quite light, and the other dining patrons had all left, we did not feel any pressure to leave our table. Location is very convenient to Downtown Fairfield and Metro North RR station. In the evenings, parking is plentiful as you can use the RR parking lots.

The food and service were all top-notch. My wife’s chicken dish was absolute perfection, however my steak, while initially cooked perfect, arrived at the table a bit cool. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. Still, I would go back.

It was a busy weekend but the restaurant didn’t seem to be able to handle it. There was a large party in the dining room and several large tables in the bar area. It took over an hour for us to get our food. The server was great and it wasn’t her fault. However it was very chaotic. Music was loud in the private party, the bar was playing different music and the large parties were very loud and obnoxious. I don’t think we will be going back. There are plenty of other places to try.

It was a bit on the noisy side. Our server started out great, received a phone call and basically we didn’t see here until requesting the bill. The phone was great and it in a convenient location. We will go back and hope for a better server experience!

Cant best the Happy Hour food and drink prices.
The wait staff are very friendly.

The poor point was the steel drum band.
My party of 5 could not talk amongst ourselves. If the band was on the patio the atmosphere would have been top rated.
But we'll go back.

Highly recommend this place! Crave has wonderful summer specials. For an appetizer, we ordered the Bluepoint Oysters, which were delicious and for our main course we ordered the lobster roll and chicken marsala. Both were amazing!! Our server Erika was wonderful. We will definitely be back!

I’ve been to crave many times for lunch and dinner. My go to is usually the crave burger or a burger on special. I was in my typical mood for a burger, it’s summertime. But, I felt like switching it up and my server Valerie recommended the lobster roll. It was really good, so good I wanted to get another. I don’t really do reviews, but hopefully people read this and give this lobster roll a go, you won’t be disappointed.

This is a definite pass. No exaggeration, this is the worst food I have had in the area, ever.

Steak tacos were exactly like chewing a rubber dog toy. Despite the fact that two of us ordered this, neither ate more than a bite or two and gave up, the server never thought to ask if the food was OK. Clearly it wasn't.

Cheese board is literally grocery store cheese cubes.

I'm mostly disappointed in the fact that despite it being slow, and despite the fact that any observant server should have noticed we weren't enjoying our food, the server seemed entirely uninterested in us. I will not go back, you shouldn't either.

All very good. Nice area as well. Apps were tasty and filling. The mains were good too. Decent selection and appealing specials.
The house drinks were good. The cheesecake desserts were the only not so great experience. Still we tried it.
Very good experience over all.

College graduation brunch. Made reservation the day before on OT for 6. 1 .5 hr before the res when we were in the graduation ceremony i get a call from the restaurant that they dont take reservations for 6 thru OT and that they are booked. Not good. They said come anyway and there may be a little wait but hopefully could fit us in. We became 7 and They seated us at a 4-top with a larger empty table next to us that they wouldn’t switch us. It never got used the entire time. The food took 2hrs to get. We ordered 2 appetizers and only got one. It was good but we would eat anything by that time.
