I believe this restaurant is now known as Pistache or they haven't changed the sign. it is in the Hotel Metro. We stopped by for brunch. The menu was a little light but what they did have was surprisingly good. I had the salmon bagel sandwich, which was absolutely delicious and the wife had the quiche. Both of us were... More

We ate breakfast there twice, and both times our server was alone and working VERY hard just to try to get everyone their food orders. The food was great, but he needs some help.

We went to an early dinner before heading to a concert at Summerfest. We wanted to have a fine dining experience instead of fest food. We enjoyed a beautiful salad prepared in layers of spinach, strawberries and walnuts. My husband enjoyed a salmon dinner and I had walleye. I would not recommend getting the walleye. It was dry and the... More

Nice place for lunch with a flair. Art Deco atmosphere was inspiring. Food was good and imaginative. Server was a bit busy but was really trying.

On two separate occasions I've had issues with being seated in a timely manner, even though my party had reservations and was on time for the reservations. As Seinfeld would say, they know how to take the reservation, but don't know how to actually hold the reservation. The first time was a couple of years ago when I had a... More

Where do I start? My family got together for my niece's first Mother's Day. The brunch was not cheap and I noticed there was a limited variety when compared to other Mother's Day brunches years before. We had a party of 7 which there were 5 mothers, one minor, and one male. Four people ordered mimosas, we were given six;... More

We had breakfast and dinner there while we stayed at the hotel. Usually, the hotel restaurants are famous with incredibly high prices, but not in this case. We had HUGE breakfast that cost us $20 (including tip) per person. The dinner with the dessert and cocktail cost in the range of $40-45 per person. The food was really delicious and... More

We really enjoyed our food at this restaurant. My husband had the duck and I had salmon. We give both a thumbs up. The waitress also highly suggested the stuffed chicken, so we'll try that on our next visit. This restaurant has a nice long bar, comfortable seating and a cozy/classy ambience. Pricing is reasonable.

Purchased a 4 course dinner Groupon for four people a few months ago and finally got around to redeeming it on Easter Monday. I let my friends choose the date and was fine with the date since I guessed it would be less busy coming on the heels on the Easter holiday. When my wife and I arrived our friends... More

Hubby and I used a Groupon for our dinner at Metro Cafe last night: a 4 course dinner with a bottle of wine of our choosing. Shared appetizer was salmon cakes which were really tasty. Warm rolls and home made breadsticks were all delicious. Hubby had French Onion soup that he raved about. I ordered the chili which was a... More
