My friends and I went to The Metropolitan last week on a Friday night. It’s situated on the 67th floor of the Sears (yes, I said Sears) Tower. Overall, the atmosphere was a little low energy with kind of a weird vibe, which is probably the case given it is an office building in the Loop on a weekend night. I bet happy hour is more the time to go. If it were me, next time, I’d sit at the bar or in the actual dining room.
The drinks were really good. We all ordered several off the pre-made menu. As a group, we got a couple appetizers including the fried pickles and calamari. Both very good. As a main, I got the steak frites which were good, but not the best I ever had. Which is what everyone else in my group said about their meal.
Overall, for the price, I think there are better options for restaurants than this place. It was really good, but not 100% sold. As mentioned, I would do a happy hour cocktail and apps after work next time. The view is really pretty. 😍
