Ask any Seattle-local where to get the best steak in town and the odds are darn near 100% that the answer is going to be Metropolitan Grill. A destination for throngs of business people doing power-lunches or date night couples having a beefily luxurious pre-symphony dinner, The Met is the only place to have your steak fire-finished at your table by white-coated waitstaff. And speaking of the waitstaff…they’re incredible. They know the menu inside out, they can recommend wines till the cows come home (but cows aren’t coming home, certainly not from this place), and they’ll make you feel a million bucks; they know this is a spendy meal and they treat you like royalty for it.
If you have a lunch meeting that needs to impress or a rehearsal dinner to wow your future in-laws then check out Metropolitan Grill’s Private Dining options. Choose from the private Vintage Room, the spacious upper and lower Boardroom, and the grand Chairman’s Room. Each of these private spaces can be booked via PlaceFull with a deposit that will count toward your food and beverage minimums on the day of your event.
When all is said and done, it’s obvious that Metropolitan Grill stands alone in the playing field of downtown Seattle’s luxury restaurants. Between the incredible wine selection, the attentive staff, the lush surroundings, and the best steaks this side of the Cascades, you’re in for a dining experience that you will remember.

Wine, regular ol’ wine out of a bottle is pretty great. But just imagine how great it would be if you didn’t have to find the corkscrew, muck about with the seal, uncork the darn thing only to have bits floating around in your glass. Imagine if it came flowing out of a tap – like beer – only better. You don’t have to imagine. It’s real. Continue reading
