There is something special about Calgary. It is different than other Canadian cities. You can feel it when patio season starts, when a chinook rolls in, or when you get a high five from a stranger just after the Flames make the playoffs. It’s a small town at heart.
At its core, The Metropolitan, has always aimed to embody that spirit. Over the past 16 years we’ve grown with the city, for the city; forever evolving in constant pursuit of being the place where Calgarians gather.

The lady serving us (I believe her name is Ashley) is a great person and very good at her job. She deserves some recognition for the service she gave us.
At one point the music was turned up and made it quite difficult to hear.
The waitresses were able to provide an optional table for better access for senior people. The food was outstanding and delicious. Prices are a little bit expensive considering the quantity of food and in comparison with other restaurants. Suggestion: Get maybe two (2) tables with low chairs to provide an option for senior people. My mother-in-law (92 years old) had difficulties to get her seat. In general terms, the food was excellent and the service was very good. I will recommend the Metropolitan to family and friends.
Going away lunch
Server was great and friendly but food took an extremely long time to arrive. One of my clients joked that the angry shrimp pasta should have been called the mildly irritated shrimp pasta as it seemed bland (possibly because it was rushed after being so late). Server apologized and made adjustments to the bill which was appreciated.
Great food and service.
Great for lunch
The food quality is not as good as in the past.
The quality of your restaurant has deteriorated.
We went to your restaurant to enjoy the food and atmosphere that we were accustomed to and we were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the service.
We will not be returning.
Food and ambiance about what I expected. Pretty decent, but nothing remarkable.
Our server was obviously new to the job. Nice place, decent food and par for the course for pricing. Seating space is great.
It’s way too loud always music is way too much
First off couldn't find my reservation, they gave away my reserved table to someone who walked in and budded in line. Then had to wait while they figured out the table situation when it was already busy. Hostess didn't seem like she knew what she was doing. Service very slow. Even though it was an appreciation night of some sort, the constant interrupting of servers while trying to talk was annoying. Food was meh. Overpriced.
Took forever to get our bill to leave.
Probably will never go back
The lettuce wraps were quite sweet and the chicken was very chunky the salads were great.
Crappy, slow service with clueless staff. Food was ok but nothing special.
I'm sorry but today was not good - Got the Georgia Chicken and the bun was dry and crumbly and the chicken was dry with a very hard crust. Ordered the side caesar as well and it really had zero flavour (hardly any dressing or cheese and leaves were limp).
That being said, had your salmon salad the other day and it was fantastic.
I had the potatoe leek soup at lunch. It was a bad rue with a handful of cube hash browns at the end.
Worst soup I’ve ever had. Pathetic. What happened?????
The food was okay but for the price I expected a lot better. Really liked the truffle fries, angry shrimp fettuccine was good but the garlic toast was just cheap toasted bread, and the jambalaya was simply okay.
Always good for a lunch if you don’t have reservations. Menu has changed. Food looked really good but was not that flavourful. Service and atmosphere always top notch. I would still give it a chance and continue going. It may have been a off day.
Food was really good and service was great but it was so loud that I could barely hear the person I was having lunch with.
The service was excellent, however the steaks were not as tender as expected. One steak was slightly overcooked. And there was no salt on the table!
Food and service were great. Too loud. Had to yell to be heard.
Overall a good experience, however too loud (music specifically) to have a business conversation over lunch.
Great time and food
Normally we like the Met but food was just ok and we waited over 35 min to receive our luke warm food. Disappointed this time with them . Service was way off.
Every time I have been to this restaurant for dinner, the food has not been great. I ordered Gyoza dumplings and they were deep fried. They were greasy and heavy and didn’t taste very good. I have never seen Gyoza dumplings deep fried before.
Food was not as good as I remember it being in the past
Waitress was slow and very rude. Management tried to smoot
Didn’t have Common Crown IPA or the gyoza for an appy
We arrived at 1130 am. The server who sat us ran off ahead of us rather than waited for us to get to our table. Two of the 6 items our table ordered weren’t available. Our server didn’t take the menus with him when we ordered our food and forgot about drinks. Food was so so. I had brown kale in my salad. Overall not a great experience.
Red Snapper was excellent
There was just too much sauce in my Seoul bowl. The flavor was great but I felt like everything was drowning in sauce.
Great date! I’m so in!!
Rather disappointing overall. The service was great, bit not much going on inside. The food left a lot to be desired - if you are a bruscetta lover, don't order it here! It came with a chopped mushroom concoction - the smell and taste were disgusting and tainted the rest of the meal. The saving grace was our lovely server who was quick to respond to any request. Would not recommend
Wallet stolen out of my purse at Lunch. Manager and staff very helpful. There is no one at the front door so be careful as these thieves just walk in, grab, walk out.
I really do like the food and the service is usually quite good. I think it was just busy so our service was a little slow, but they staff was friendly, professional and courteous. Also the cheesecake is amazing.
Good food with great service. Friendly Waitress. Great patio atmoshphere.
We arrived on time for our noon reservation and were given a table right at the door. Not what is expected when a reservation is made ahead of time. We waited 10 mins to be acknowledged at all and waited 20 mins to get even a glass of water. Waited again for our order to be taken. Our service had approached our table and indicated she would be serving us. She then forgot about us and I needed to wave her over. She then said "did no one help you?" About 15 mins later the bartender approached and said he was taking over the table and asked what we ordered. Honestly must say, the service was a complete failure. The food was mediocre and less enjoyable as we had to rush to eat the food and leave.
We didn’t eat just had drinks but everything was great. The wine was a bit pricey but service was great.
The angry shrimp pasta was amazing. Dont forget to try their Baja Fish Taco! It was delicious
