I would recommend your restaurant to my acquaintances. The taste of the food was just out of the world. Once again, big thanks to you and your staff for making our work day more distinctive.

This place has been around for years but is not the same as the past owners standards for sure, still good food with a little less flair.

Haven’t ordered from the Metro before , and it was delicious. The schnitzel is a good size, tasty, and meaty. The mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots all had a home made flavour. My dinner companion had the red cabbage and home fries, superb. Totally recommend this...restaurant. It was ready on time, order process was simple.More

Ordered 3 meals yesterday. When I arrived at the pickup time 1 hour later was told they were just going to call me as they were out of one of the selections. Re-ordered new selection and waited. The order was for 2 soups and 1...caesar salad. received one half soup and 3 caesar salads. Also asked for coleslaw and got red cabbage instead. One combo was short the sausage but it was on the bill. Very disappointed.More

Living downtown Kitchener for 20 years and finally decided to try Metro when family came to town. We had a pretty large and expensive take out order (almost $200). The food was plentiful and very good. The perogies were ok. My nieces ordered them as...her meal. The menu:Cheese Perogies (Deep Fried) Stuffed with cream cheese and potato. Topped with fried onions. Served with mashed potatoes and red cabbage. They arrived without the fried onions. I called the restaurant to explain they were forgotten. Person on the phone said that they don't do fried onions on them anymore because so may people complained of onion allergies. She said that they had fixed the menu. I explained that I was looking at the menu and it was still on the menu. "Was that all?" "Yes, you should change the online order....'' "I'll take care of it - is that all?" "Yes...." "Goodbye" For 1st timers, her treatment was pretty rude. Don't know if I would return based on her treatment of me.More

We met our sister in law's family at the Metro for an outdoor patio dinner. The new setup with picnic tables with lots of spacing, some under tents worked great. Takeout is also an option, but it is so much better to eat their delicious...schnitzels fresh at the table. With a huge variety of schnitzel (pork and chicken), this is our go to place for family celebrations. The schnitzels, soup and sides were as excellent as ever.More

On our way home we drove via Kitchener & wanted to stop for a quick bite at a German restaurant. Google located Metro restaurant for us & we stopped there. Despite its outdated decor that has its cozy feel, food & service were pretty good....We had goulash soup, schnitzel & crepe with tea. Everything was tasty. We were not disappointed.More

The service has always been friendly and staff have a good sense of humour. Their food is fantastic, schnitzel and spatzle have been a winner every time. Metro is great for a relaxed dinner as a couple or a friendly upbeat dinner with friends and...family. The dated decor and atmosphere is a part of its charm, and consistency in service and food quality is a real seller for this place. As locals to Kitchener, it's always a winner to bring those from out-of-town to Metro for lunch or dinner.More

Was a wonderful place to have a meal before going out for a ladies night out. We booked a reservation for 4:15pm. Cant do a reservation on the weekend after 5pm.. So we went early so we weren't rushed. Great menu to choose from.

Today I was very disappointed and to be honest I should have seen it coming. The food is good but the service... not so much. When there are 4-5 tables the service seems slow but you can live with it. Today it was busy and...we were really looking forward to it. When we walked in someone was complaining that they came from out of town and they had run out of goulash. We put our order in and after 55 minutes we asked about our food and they said they had a big table to plate then they would do ours. That was it, I asked for my bill as we had only 2 beers. They said we’d have to pay for our meals even though we didn’t get them yet. We said NO and that you’ll never see us again. Too bad as it used to be our go to restaurant for schnitzel in KW.More

Yes, they are. We talked with the staff who told us they were excited to be opening with reduced indoor seating a couple days after we ate there. They recommend a reservation.
