Doris Metropolitan Ratings and Reviews
This is hands down the best restaurant in the New Orleans area. There is a glassed in meat room where they age their meats. It's beautiful.
We always order at least two appetizers-- calamari and tuna tartar are our favorites. Next would be the sweet breads. I love their filet and fries. Doris has authentic waygu beef at a hearty price of course.
Nick makes the best hand craft cocktails. Dessert is a must and so is an dessert cocktail.
Our waiter, Troy, was awesome and very attentive. The calamari salad and cured fish bruschetta were both amazing!! Most of our entrees were good but not fantastic. The sea bass was way too salty. One person ordered the butchers cut and loved It! The drinks and wine selection were top notch. Overall it was a good experience. Next time we will probably stick with just appetizers!
We originally heard of this restaurant over a year ago and were anxious to finally get to NOLA to try it out. We were not disappointed. We had a gentleman next to us who was celebrating his 70th birthday, he was a local, who said he would not celebrate anywhere else. We understand now. We had the rib-eyes and the flavor, juiciness, and the tenderness were unbelievable! We're from the West Coast, and will be on the hunt for something similar, but I have little hope of finding it. We will be back.
Doris Metropolitan is a fine dining establishment that I've been eyeballing for my last several visits to NOLA (I'm a frequent visitor). If what you're looking for is a place for properly aged, super high quality beef, then this is the place for you. Every course was divine, the service impeccable, the wine outstanding. It was definitely a splurge, but a glorious one. I will definitely be back.
Doris has a great atmosphere in a great building in the French Quarter. The service was good, not excellent - I didn't find the waiter to be that knowledgeable about the wine list. The food was good, but not great - which I would expect for a steakhouse that charges more than most for its steaks.
This was our fourth time at Doris Metropolitan. It used to be one of our absolute favorite restaurants with some of the best steak ever. The food has really dropped in quality. The cheese plate was three fairly uninteresting one ounce cheese squares for $20. The 31 day aged NY strip was tough, tasteless and overcooked. I ate less than half of the replacement steak as it was again overcooked, tasteless and tough. The filet was bland. It wasn't just us. The table next to us also sent back their steak and gave up on the second try. The service was fantastic, but overall we were disappointed and won't be back. There are too many other good restaurants in NOLA.
It's hard to figure whether to write about the service or the food first. We three dominated a prime table for HOURS, arriving early, separately, and staying late. YET, there was never a hint of impatience from anyone on the staff or in the room. The food was amazing. I find most restaurant food way too salty, but Doris serves a nice variety of sweet, neutral and savory so each person can balance their needs and wishes. From appetizers to bread basket, from aperitif to magnificent Amarone, the food made us stay and stay. Lovely family get together was enjoyed by all.
I just love a low-key restaurant that know what it's doing. It was unpretentious in setting, welcoming in service and the food was very good too. I had the scallops (special) and they were very good. My husband had the ribeye and really enjoyed it too. We will be returning!
So many wonderful places to visit in NOLA and this was once a fav. No so much anymore.
Dont get me wrong the food was great but comparied to so many other great places now in NOLA this one is now fallen down the list. Wine list is great...other than no Merlot by the glass...
The major issue we had was service.. We had a female and she was just not interested in serving us. (2 females)The other tables in the room never had to locate their server... Honestly we left early due to this... Think i will skip this spot on my next visit.
We were excited to come to this venue. However, from first entrance into the restaurant, there were multiple individuals who were quite rude and gave the persona that we weren't quite good enough to be in their establishment. Never judge a book by its cover. Your ladies at the front area were quite cordial but the management was very specific about who they visited with. I would never return. Food was far from good...mediocre at best and service was subpar. We spent far less than we normally would have on extras such as drinks etc had we really enjoyed the atmosphere. No thanks...many other places to spend our money that we actually enjoy visiting.
Pretty disappointing. Went here after reading it had a great steak and lovely atmosphere. Recieved a subpar low flavor steak, a forgotten bottle of wine from the server, and an atmosphere as far from a steak house as you can get.
Maybe it was just the night we went but if we are coming to spend some money away from bourbon street it would of been nice to be able to even hear my date. Ended up cutting our whole meal short and grabbing dessert and drinks around the corner for a much better price and infinitely better experience.
It may be ignorance on my part but I have never had "aged" beef before. After looking at the prices, the two of us opted for a 32 oz porterhouse steak for us to split. It seemed to shave off about $20 . Half of the cut was like a filet and half like a New York strip. I have never had such a dry piece of beef in my life and have never been so disappointed. For the two of us with appetizers , main course and asparagus side with 2 glasses of wine, no dissert, the bill including tip was $207. Not memorable and will not go back.
