Exquisite dining experience. The service was completely on point, classy and professional. Perfect place to celebrate an event or enjoy a steak and some wine. The filet with au poivre sauce was amazing - cooked perfectly tender.

Parking was free and easy. I remember lots of names of people there they have great personalities and appeared to be happy to be at work. Ali showed us to our table we chatted a bit ( thank you for your service) the recommendations were perfect. I had the shank steak. D was so sweet she even doubled as our photographer. Everyone was so attentive. The owner Cassie even stopped at our table. The desert was amazing I'm glad I wasn't sharing it, Lol. Everything was very nice the place the food the people.

Metro 8 was great. My partner and I visited for date night. Before we could order food my partner passed out! Luckily she fell into a soft booth. At least 5 staff members ran over immediately to help us out. She came to fast but was still woozy. The staff brought over so many things to help her out including cold compresses, water, and rolls. My wife hadn't eaten all day so we are guessing this was the cause. Ali, our waiter, was so helpful and kept checking in us. We ended up ordering the food to go. Even though it was not fresh, our steaks were delicious. Can't wait to go again and and not have anybody pass out.

The food is delightful. Highly recommend the skirt steak and lobster raviolis. Also, the chocolate soufflé is just perfect.
Service is excellent. Our server, Dee, made our birthday celebration special. Wednesday night is half off wine night, so that is nice as well.

Best lamb chops I've had in a while. Great service. Lovely ambiance. Wish it stayed open past 9PM. Bread was weird. Looked like hamburger buns. Also the ladies room needed some maintenance (no hand soap or TP).

The staff here are fantastic! But I think I just expected a better... Atmosphere considering the menu prices. The lights were bright, it didn't feel very romantic. The tables and chairs remind me of my kitchen table from 1996 (80's baby) and the table settings seemed... Inexpensive. And I don't remember hearing any music. Maybe it was just turned down low. Idk.
The food was pretty good. The wine and spirit selection is very good and the dinner rolls came with a delicious cream cheese spread.

Best salmon dinner I’ve ever had at a steakhouse! We were visiting from Nashville a week ago and made last-minute reservations here. We were welcomed and seated promptly upon arrival. Service was friendly, efficient, and unobtrusive. Just a great experience?

Our family really enjoyed our dinner at Metro 8! My son and I had the NY Strip cooked to our specifications. His baked potato side was enjoyed as was my sautéed asparagus, although I’m partial to grilled. My wife had the grilled chicken breast and a baked potato. Pre dinner bread offering was also delicious.
As a previous diner at the famous St Elmo’s Steakhouse, the Shrimp Cocktail here was not quite to that level, but still very good.
My Old Fashioned was tasty, but would recommend one large cube over cubes and also asking the patron’s bourbon preference.
All in all, an enjoyable dinner experience.

Service was 10/10. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Dessert was amazing, tiramisu and cheesecake 10/10.
Unfortunately, entrees were lacking. The salmon was swimming in a very strong citrus butter sauce that was just too much while the salmon itself was flavorless. The strip steak was good and the baked potato was good.
