    the Indian pancakes were fantastic, When the watermelon that was starting to spoil was brought to the servers attention she brought to kitchen . The cook shrugged his shoulders . It was not taken off the bill.

    It was Mother’s Day and the music was terrible- something nice, elevated like chill bossa nova or anything that wasn’t like a radio station. It really took the vibe down by about $50. Service was decent but it should have been for the 18% added gratuity that was added to the bill. Amazing choice of food but not necessarily the best food- again the vibe was really brought down by the music and service that seemed to lose interest if your group was only drinking coffee with your almost $100 brunch per person. I love diva but was not excited about the Mother’s Day function

    Decided to give this place a try before the show Friday night. The place was empty which I found weird for dinner time on a Friday. The duck ragu was too sweet and not very appetizing. We also ordered the bison which tasted like it was smothered in horseradish sauce. Definitely not worth the price and probably would not come again.

    Our Valentine’s Day dinner was excellent - the Metropolitan hotel was an ‘in town’ treat where we could meet friends for dinner & not have to worry about driving home. Peter, at Diva at the Met, arranged champagne in the room & a quiet table - we had a great evening.

    I had the curry which barely had any spice in it, and the service was poor. Sadly Diva used to be a good restaurant but has dropped in caliber. They need to do a lot to elevate both the food and service.

    Diva has a new chef and new menu since our last visit. It still is a good restaurant, with very good service, but is more casual, catering it seems more to the hotel guests, and not quite as good as a destination restaurant. However very good value still.

    Got to our reservation early, was sat near the door and a TV during an intimate Valentine's Day. Not a good way to start the date. We asked to be moved and the wait staff and host made a big deal about us wanting to move, meanwhile the restaraunt was maybe one third full. The service was not good, our server consistently asked other tables if they wanted drinks, but not ours. Each table recieved a lovely pair of chocolate covered strawberries and a rose before their bill came. But of course, not ours. We had such high hopes and although our server was really lovely while at our table, we just barely saw her and could not get her attention. It looked as though they were understaffed and she was just her ran off her feet. Perhaps the restaurant can confirm more staff for future events. For their Valentines Day special, each meal was so lack luster in taste. The lobster bisque had one piece of lobster in mine and my spouse just had the broth. I had a pescatarian option for the dinner and was served a salmon fillet, tail end, absolutely hard as a well done steak, with carrots that had not even removed the ends. The set menu said tiramisu for dessert, it was red velvet cake that was bland and disguised as tiramisu!! Will not return, would not recommend. After a bill of $210.00 before tip, this was by far the worst dinner we have ever had. For $86 per person for a set menu, the restaurant really should up their game!

    Worst experience ever. The food was below average - either too salty or tasteless. The waitress, Lyric (or May as stated on the receipt), was slow and rude. Between each course, we had to wait 30-45min so the dinner took extra long. Whenever we try to wave her down, she would pretend that she didn’t see us and continue on serving other tables. The other tables that came later than us all finished way ahead of us - at least an hour ahead. Then when it came to giving us the bill, she took another 30-40min while we tried to wave her down with no successful tries. When she finally came with the bill, we decided to give her less tips since she did not give us good service, it was when she brought the credit card machine over that she told us there’s actually auto gratuity and she charged the amount she didn’t deserve. We did not see anywhere that it stated the restaurant will charge 18% tips if we have a group of 6. It wasn't on the bill either; she just entered it on the machine and made us tap our cards. She should be properly train to treat all her customers the same. We felt like we were treated with bad attitude and service because she automatically gets the tips anyways. DON’T GO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE TREATED POORLY.

    We were sitting at the table at the back of the restaurant where was very quiet. We thought we were very lucky because we found it was very noisy at the front of the restaurant when we walked through there at the end of our dinner. I chose short rib and I loved it. It was very tendar and tasty. I loved the dessert I picked - sticky toffee pudding as well. I was very happy that I chose Diva at the Met.

    The noise level was high and we (6) could not hear each other. If the Dine Out menu was a good sampling of your regular menu, it was disappointing. Food was only mediocre. Parking was not allowed for Dine Out, so had to park elsewhere on a very rainy night. Service was excellent and attentive, best part of the experience.

    One of the worst Dine Out experiences I've had. Despite the restaurant being two thirds empty we were made to feel rushed and disrespected. Our meal was okay, not stellar. For a well established higher end restaurant DIVA did not meet any expectations. After getting in touch with the manager regarding our concerns after our meal his response did not address any of the points raised and did not leave me feeling that anything would change. Again I felt the DIVA does not value it's customers. We won't be going back or recommending to anyone. There are other much better restaurants that know the meaning of customer service that are worthy of our custom. The only thing big about DIVA was our disappointment.
