Contrary to some of the negative reviews we found Metro 8 to be very decent. The steaks we ordered were well done, sizeable, and generally a good meal. I think you can skip the chorizo - it was terribly salty. Service was attentive and the...More

Enjoyed a date night dinner on the back porch. Steaks were perfect and the service was excellent. We both had filet and shared the taramisu for dessert.

Quaint neighborhood steakhouse. Section of wines was on the sweet side. Average steak and vegetable. The pleasant, casual ambience was the best feature. Reservations seem to be required since it often seems to be a full house.

No specific dress code when I've been there. Most wear neat/dressy casual. Jeans aren't uncommon, but with collared shirts - not sneakers/shorts/t-shirts.
