- Disabled Access
Metropolitan is situated in the heart of the Merchant City in Glasgow, and comprises a stylish cocktail bar and 200 cover restaurant spread over our Balconies, intimate Booths and Private Dining Areas - open until 3am every Friday and Saturday.
We are just as serious about our food as we are about our cocktails…
Overlooking the Merchant Square our Balcony Restaurant is the perfect setting for any occasion. Spend an evening in the restaurant being looked after by our friendly staff then head on through to the Piano Bar for after dinner cocktails and entertainment from our talented pianists. Experience a variety of fresh and exciting dishes on our Scottish restaurant menu lovingly prepared by our experienced kitchen team. The restaurant is a popular choice for large party dinners as well as small intimate meals for two. We are more than happy to cater for everyone.
Afternoon Tea is served Friday – Sunday
Sittings at either 12.30pm and 2.30pm
Food and drink was good and our service was great.Only issue was that it was so warm I couldn’t enjoy my meal as there was no air conditioning i just wanted to finish my meal quickly and go outside instead of sitting enjoying our drinks and meal.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend and will return.
Once again we had a wonderful meal, nothing was too much trouble, even increasing the size of our party to ten an hour before hand was no problem. We'll be back!
Service and atmosphere were both great. Food was edible and that’s about it will not eat here again. Starter of chicken satay was simply grilled chicken with salad leaves extremely poor could have made this better at home. Main course harissa chicken very similar to starter not impressed. Husband had braised beef slight improvement on mine but did not reflect the money at all. Would only re visit for drinks or sandwich at the most.
Our dining experience was spoiled as a large drinks delivery arrived and the delivery men propped the doors open causing wind to blow directly at our table. They left the doors open when taking each load in the lift and unloading elsewhere. I closed the doors at least 3 times! The service was also very slow.
Great venue and excellent value for money
Great value for money
Efficient friendly service
Afternoon tea for two was very poor. Not a great choice of fillings and only 3 triangles per person. Cakes were fine but nothing amazing. Signature cocktail was delicious though.
Staff were brilliant, as was service etc. Signage to function area would have been useful as around 20 guests left because they couldn’t find the function suite within the establishment and sporks for hand food
Super value deals and for Friday evening dining too! Our large party had a lovely evening: the menu catered to all tastes and service was very good too.
Brilliant all round service
Attentive, friendly and helpful staff, great range of sandwiches, cakes and drinks. Good experience
Had to wait some time on waitress/waiter bringing drinks to table - 30 minute wait. We were upstairs eating on the balcony and it was exceptionally hot and stuffy - no air conditioning.
Great service! Staff were so helpful & set up the whole party
Decorations were delivered as advised this would be done by staff. Arrived later to find nothing had been done. Service was really slow and took an hour to get the signature cocktail that was part of the deal. One arrived in a chipped/cracked glass. I was asked not to keep drinks bill separate to make it easier for staff?? I was told my 17 year old niece had to leave before 8pm but it was ok for a baby to be there after this time? The manager said this was a mistake it should have been 10 but at this point we decided to wrap things up. Nice for extended to share my daughters 18th birthday meal but it should have been better!
We had a lovely evening meal at Metropolitan for my mother in laws 85th birthday last week - the food was amazing (as always!) - Jordan and the staff were very attentive and lit the candles on the cake for us. I have never had a bad meal in this place and will be back!!
Lovely birthday meal with family. Great service and value for money 👌🏽
Service was terrible however it’s clear there is lack of training so you can’t really blame the staff. Ginger male member of staff was extremely rude to the blonde girl serving us because she asked what kind of soup was on the menu as he walked past (she should’ve really known this anyway) - he should most definitely review how he speaks to other members of staff in front of customers. The food was below average. Chicken burger was burnt, fritters were greasy, beef was fatty and the houmous looked and tasted like thick baby food. Extremely disappointed and we would have expressed our views but weren’t actually asked by the staff member how any of our meal was - this should’ve been questioned since none of our plates were cleared. Dessert menu was poor and no real variety. Cocktail we asked for isn’t actually on the menu anymore (the staff member failed to tell us this) and instead brought out a cocktail they thought would be the equivalent. Also, some paying customers would like to know if it’s pepsi or cola being served as many folk don’t like one or the other - we weren’t told it would be flat, watered down draft Pepsi. All in all a terrible meal; we left hungry, extremely disappointed and most definitely won’t be back to eat.
Great atmosphere,good value food,lovely staff
A fantastic room for a small-ish group of around 40 Beautiful candelabras on each large round table with tall, real candles added real atmosphere. My 22 year old son said it was ‘the best nibbles’ he’d ever had at an event. My 19 year old daughter said she wants me to find an excuse for another night! As this was my retiral event with staff, I’ll have to put some thought into what might be next :-) All my staff who attended loved everything about the venue and there is a variety of superb adjoining facilities if they’d wanted a meal before the event. Thank you. Lizzy
Nice afternoon. Bar service very good. Table service was a bit slow although I appreciate it was busy. Would go back.
Very friendly helpful staff. Kitchen staff even accommodating my child’s fussy eating habits. Thanks
We had a great few hours people watching and enjoying some lovely cocktails. Food looked great so will be eating next time.
