WOW! Took my 15 year old son out for his birthday and it was a fantastic experience. The restaurant is gorgeous! The staff is 6 star friendly, helpful and kind. The food... The food is incredible! Metro 8 is a steakhouse with a more than steak menu. Everything we ordered was great! This is certainly our go to formal restaurant.

Friends took me for dinner. I had not been to the new location. Our server was amazing, she was attentive and made terrific recommendations. My steak was exquisitely prepared. The atmosphere was delightful and very pretty. Parking at the new location is much easier. Overall, if you're looking for a great experience in Durham, I highly recommend Metro 8.

We had an amazing experience. We made reservations prior and were able to avoid any wait time. We had asked for a secluded table when we made reservations, and they were able to accommodate our request. We had a great table which happened to be next to their beautiful Christmas tree, which added a nice magical touch to our experience. We had the provoleta and chorizo for our appetizer and both were delicious. My husband had the cowboy ribeye and said it was the best he has had. So tender and juicy and seasoned perfectly. I had their popular Churrasco steak, and it was equally amazing. Their sides are a little basic but still very tasty. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the food. The service was great, and the whole staff works together to take care of you. It was refreshing to see. We would definitely make our way back.

Outstanding dinner location. Family owned and run, the owners are very involved and ensure this restaurant runs smoothly with high-quality food and service. A cozy atmosphere perfect for groups or date nights, and a menu with something amazing for everyone. Tables and bar service are both available. Has an amazing Pittsburgh-style steak which can be hard to find so give it a try.

Had a really good provaleta appetizer and steak here. Steak was expertly cooked, service was very good (wait staff platoons so you don't wait much). Souffle desert was awesome. This is a steak restaurant. Don't go here if you don't want steak. I note one of the bad reviews below is someone who ordered fish and pasta. Who does this? Ignore reviews written by dumb people....

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.
