The Metro’s focus is on authentic, provincial, French food served in a casual, bistrot atmosphere using local ingredients (as far as possible). We are not an intimidating, haute cuisine or fusion-style restaurant with ridiculous prices, miniscule portions, post-modern effusions, or heavy butter and cream sauces.
Given our size, location, dhours open to the public, and welcome, we are essentially a boutique restaurant.
Almost every dish may be ordered to take-out. We also offer gift certificates.
