Good food, great people. It's been a year since we've been in there yet the owner still remembered us. Crazy memory! The food is excellent and they treated us very well. Great little gem in the middle of Durham. I can't wait to check out their new place.

Last night was my first experience eating at Metro 8. I must say it was an amazing experience! The food was amazing and the customer service was out of this world! The entire staff worked as a team and were very attentive the entire time. We will certainly be going back!

My husband's favorite. It's a nice little spot and the food is delicious. We have some food allergies in our family, and the wait staff, manager, and chef were all helpful and careful during our last visit to make sure we could eat safely. Thanks so much!

I have never had a better stake then the one from here and my husband's mushroom pasta dish was also very delicious! I gave 5 starts for the amazing food but the service could have been better.

My wife and I were here as part of an event for a 25th science and math high school reunion. The food was very tasty, however the banquet service was lacking. Not only were they out of food in both of the lines before half of the guests had made it through, the banquet manager herself, I assume, was not friendly or terribly helpful.

The service was good but the food left a lot to be desired. Not a great value for the price and I don't have any desire to go back.

Our experience was very mixed. We started out with a server who was excellent. Our appetizers came, hot rolls with lots of butter, and our water glasses were kept full. Halfway through, we didn't see our server. No one came over to see how our meal was. No one came over to see if we needed anything - not even water. No one came over to ask if we would like to see the desert menu. We tried to get the attention of another server and it was as if we were invisible. Finally, about 15 minutes of sitting with our dirty, empty plates, we were able to catch the attention of one and asked jokingly if our server had gotten lost or gone home. The response was "yes, we sent him home. We had to many servers for tonight." Really? No one, including our server, had come over to tell us that he was leaving. No one picked up our table. A dessert menu was literally tossed down onto the table at this point. No one came over to ask if we wanted any dessert. Then, we had to wait until again we were able to catch a server's attention so we could get the check. Got the check and then had to wait again until someone realized that it was standing up on the table waiting to be taken. No - we won't be going there again!!

The best place in the triangle for steak. The staff is amazing, the food out of this world. and the atmosphere is even better. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have a great experience.

I really enjoyed this place a lot. The service was great. All the employees were prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. Everyone's food was reportedly good. I certainly enjoyed mine. The menu was diverse enough to cover all our unique dietary restrictions. I will definitely come back to this place for some more meat next time I'm in the area.

Once a month my wife and I go to an upscale restaurant. Metro 8 is one of the best we've been to. The servers treat you like royalty and the food is amazing. My wifes New York strip was cooked perfectly and my Churrasco was one of the best steak dishes I've ever had. The setting was romantic and beautiful. Great restaurant, you will love the experience and the food.

The food is delicious and the environment is relaxing. The only deterrent was the server's assistance were watching and hovering over the tables too much I thought. Twice they went to clear my plate that I was still working on, and I had to say that I'm still eating. You have to set reservations here, so allow me to enjoy my meal in peace without feeling like you're rushing me.

We tried this restaurant with a group of 10. We made reservations and all went smooth. The food was amazing! All meats were properly cooked. The filet mignon which I ordered was like a slice of heaven. Totally worth the visit to get a great steak. The server was great and answered any questions we had and was prompt with refills.

Perfect steak everytime I've been and the chocolate souffle was a fantastic way to end the meal.
