Doris Metropolitan Ratings and Reviews

The beef hangs behind glass windows as you enter the restaurant. The steaks were to die for-best we've ever had, so tender you could cut it with your fork. Everything was delicious, service was awesome, and our waitress was friendly and very informative.

Some of the food choices, especially the appetizers, are too flamboyant. Many simple dishes are spruced up to be so original that they become no longer appetizing. Steak was of good quality but under cooked to my order. Tight seating. Great service.

Doris has been on my bucket list for a while, and we decided to go on our Anniversary. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the service was good.
I felt the food was way too salty. Also, felt it could have been prepared more simple. Chilean Sea Bass, in my opinion, should be grilled and left without creamy/cheese sauce. A good cut of meat or fish does not need to be masked with sauces.

Loved the food and atmosphere. This was my first time. Only thing that ruined it for me was me and my wife asked for well done steak and the steaks came to our table medium. We had to send them both back and wait for them to cook the steaks some more.

We were in NOLA for our 35th wedding anniversary. The meal at Doris Metropolitan was superb. We were greeted immediately and our waitress was very attentive during our entire dinner. We would definitely return, but would possibly share a steak, with all the extras, the steaks were a bit much. The bread was so delicious and the beet root supreme was outstanding. A very pleasurable experience. Thank you Doris Metropolitan.

Appetizers were good. Calamari Salad wasn't the usual cookie cutter salad with nuances of middle eastern flavors making it unique. Tuna Tartare was also a standout appetizer. Expectations met with the dry aged Ribeye. New dessert menu completes a great dining experience.

Hands down the best steak I've had in Nola- we essentially had the chef's tasting menu and it was all perfectly prepared and delicious. We all started with craft cocktail, I had the panda complete with a panda face created from my egg white foam ( loved the extra touch). For a party of 4 we got 3 aps that were on the lighter side (snapper, tuna, and a beat salad). Thank got the starters were light because the next course was full on meat in the best possible way. Finished the meal up with tea and a non-traditional Halva. My Persian boyfriend raved about the tea and was excited for us to try the halva (a traditional Arabic dessert that is seen frequently in Persian culture). Over all amazing experience start to finish!

Amazing meal. A steakhouse where the steak is excellent, but it's the rest of the menu that makes this a stellar meal. No shrimp cocktail or mashed potatoes here. Inventive sides, salads and appetizers steal the show!

My son recommended Doris to us. We were in town for a wedding and decided that a mid-day meal there would be worth the try. We all were greatly satisfied with our food and drink. The wait staff was very helpful and contributed much to our overall enjoyment. We definitely plan to go back very soon.

We have been several times on our numerous trips to New Orleans. In fact we always eat at Doris a couple of times each trip because we love it so much. We usually sit at the bar. The bartenders are super creative and their service is top notch. Everything that me and my husband have had has been exceptional! The crafted drinks and food are equally great! Some of our favorites besides the aged steaks are the artichoke salad, truffle polenta, beet salad and beef carpaccio...wouldn't change anything. Wish we had this restaurant in PA.

Was in New Orleans with a friend for the weekend. Decided to dine at Doris Metropolitan for dinner on a Friday PM. Had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend the filet! The bone marrow on the side to use as a spread is a brilliant addition to the flavor.

I was in New Orleans for business on my birthday and had lunch here by myself to celebrate. There isn't a huge variety on their lunch menu but what is on offer was exceptionally good. I had a tomato celebration salad (enjoyed this more that I expected to), the minute steak (this was quite thin steak) and a desert with a double decaf espresso. They had a reasonable wine selection and I had Prosecco with my starter, a red wine with my main and a port with my desert.
Some time ago I had dinner here and had been wanting to return ever since. They do a great job and I intend to bring friends here when I'm back in town.

The food was great and we appreciated them accommodating our request for a meat board with table side service. It was a bit disappointing to see the lunch menu scaled back so much compared to the original lunch menu. We missed the tuna tartare three ways!

We celebrated my daughter's 50th birthday, and Doris Metropolitan was her choice. Steaks were good, but not outstanding (check out Doe's Eat Place in Greenville, Mississippi, for a superior beef experience). Our waitress was fabulous; great smile and terrific service. She could not have been better. One in our party of four ordered a Beefeater martini; the martini was good, but it was NOT Beefeater. The bartender should have informed us that Beefeater wasn't available and allowed a second choice. Biggest complaint was that the food came out too fast. Way too fast. We had enjoyed an appetizer of excellent sweetbreads, but when that plate was removed, all the food seemed to arrive like a lightning bolt. Not pleasant. It felt like the restaurant was trying to turn over the table and move us on. While this place has garnered a lot of praise, New Orleans is full of wonderful eateries that provide a better experience.

The restaurant is beautiful and the waiters were wonderful. The rest of the people in our large group really loved the appetizers and steaks. I wasn't a fan of the Classified Steak that I ordered. It was very fatty. The side vegetables were very good.

I noticed Doris one day while walking through the quarter. I made a mental note to try it out. Oh my gosh, what a pleasant surprise. Wonderful experience. Already planning to go back. Food, service and ambiance were excellent.

We were at Doris Metropolitan for a birthday dinner. Very good service and the best, they love meet. So fare I had the best steak in town. Even the price was ok. I will recommend the restaurant to my friends to test it out.

One of the best steaks I've ever had, plus the sides were just as awesome. They also bake their bread in-house and melts in your mouth. The cocktails weren't so shabby either with a perfectly concocted Old Fashion & French 75. We will be back sooner than later

I originally thought the restaurant was in the Warehouse district in NOLA. Boy was I surprised when I actually saw the address. I typically avoid the French Quarter at all costs due to parking and mainly because i'm a local, i don't really need to frequent the FQ. As i suspected finding parking was a HUGE headache but, I braved it out and found a spot, after searching for 30 minutes. I'd heard the food was excellent and that's the only thing that kept me from skipping out on the reservation completely.
I'm so glad I found a spot!!! This place. The food. The drinks. Everything was absolutely phenomenal! I know going to a restaurant such as this the worst thing you can do is order fries, but i had a hankering for some fries. I ordered the truffle fries as an appetizer, they were DELICIOUS. As was everything else. I ordered the bone-in rib eye cooked medium(first time i tried medium) I was very impressed at the taste of the steak and I had the root puree for a side dish. Everything was absolutely wonderful.
If you're looking for a great steak with great ambiance and tasty drinks, this is definitely the place for you. When reading reviews about the restaurant I thought it was a bit more refined and uppity but i was pleasantly surprised about how upbeat and modern the ambiance is.
The staff was wonderful...friendly, very accommodating and food service was quick.
I would recommend everyone to Doris Metropolitan in a heartbeat!!
