Doris Metropolitan Ratings and Reviews
Wow! I have walked by this restaurant many times and finally had the pleasure of dining there. Our waiter, Troy, was attentive without being overbearing. The bartender made a very good Old Fashioned and French 75. The wine list was reasonably priced.... the menu is moderately pricey, but the food was well worth every penny. We had the cheese plate and tuna tartare for appetizers. We both had steaks for dinner... cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. All of this in a dimly lit, romantic setting. Looking forward to my next visit.
I went to Doris Metropolitan two weeks ago and had the meat Board for dinner with my 3 guests. It is where they bring 3 cuts of meat on and the waiter carves it at your table. It was a great meal that night so 2 weeks later I tried it again. The rest of the menu looks great but I think that I will have this every time I eat here. Its a great presentation and great food.
Doris Metropolitan has never disappointed us. Our waiter, Troy, was very attentive and offered suggestions. We had a very nice Heitz Trailside Vineyard Cab. We started with a cheese plate that also included honey. flavored with blood orange juice. For the main course we had beef tenderloins that were cooked perfectly. The truffle and cheese fries were a very good side dish. We opted to have a little liquid dessert and had a Sauterne tasting, phenomenal!
Celebrated our 6 year anniversary here and it was amazing. The tuna tartare was our appetizer and it was very flavorful. Our waitress was very polite and made our experience there even better. Our main course we had the tomahawk steak and it was beautifully presented to us. The steak was an explosion of flavor. All you need was freshly ground pepper and their special salt. There was no leftovers! We will be back shortly!
We looked at Trip Advisor to see the list of quality restaurants in New Orleans. Doris Metropolitan was in the top 10. We agree with that ranking. The butcher cut steaks (10oz) were cooked perfectly and extremely tender. The tomato appetizer prepared four ways was outstanding. the side dish of asparagus was cooked perfectly. Yan, our waiter, was outstanding and supported by all the other wait staff. We will return to this restaurant.
We booked a reservation in advance of our trip to New Orleans for a special meal. It exceeded our expectations and we actually canceled a reservation at a different restaurant to go back before our vacation ended. Food is on point! The Ribeye steak and sea bass are both amazing. I also recommend the Tuna tartar.
The service is beyond amazing. They are knowledgeable and friendly and make you feel catered to without being overbearing our intrusive! Two totally different staffs for two different nights (shifts) same excellent service.
A traditional steak house in the French Quarter. Nice décor, good wine list, and a “normal” menu for a fine food steak house. Once seated, our party of two was promptly greeted by a polite waitress. She was patient while we ordered and enjoyed our wine (an excellent bottle of Brunello) and perused the menu. Per the seemingly knowledge-based recommendation of our waitress, I ordered a house special—the Classified Cut (9 ounces). My friend ordered a bone-in NY Strip. My steak was excellent. I couldn't identify the cut of meat (she told us it was “Classified”), but it tasted like aged, well-seasoned tenderloin. It was cooked to the medium rare specification I ordered and was lean and delicious. The bone-in NY Strip started out well. My buddy said it tasted great and it seemed to be cooked properly. But, after about a third of the steak was consumed, he noticed that the entire balance was fat and bone. Thus, much of the NY Strip was inedible. We had dined together many times over our 30 year friendship and this was the only time he voiced concern. Our waitress, who was attentive until the entrée arrived, came to the table about 10 minutes after the NY Strip's “issues” were discovered. My friend politely noted the problem. The waitress reacted well, acknowledged all of the fat, and said “I’m going to take care of it.” About 10 minutes later she returned and asked if we wanted dessert. We declined. She didn't mention the NY Strip. I ordered a latte and, then, she brought the check. We asked that she divide it equally and she processed the payment. No compensation. No “I’m sorry” your meal disappointed. Having dined at some of the world’s best steak houses, we were surprised. Doris Metropolitan might have compared favorably with those more renowned establishments. But, once the bad steak was noted and removed, our service went from excellent to virtually non-existent. For that reason I cannot offer a favorable recommendation. I will not return.
Our last night after a week in the Crescent City and this was hands down the best meal and overall experience of the trip! Tuna Tartare with soy "pearls" is a must as are the humble but outstandingly executed fries. You can't go wrong with any of the carefully sourced and aged steaks, but we split the tomahawk between two couples and all got plenty. A quick word about this Flintstonian affair: It would be difficult to overstate what an amazing cut of beef this was and how expertly it was prepared. Plus it's a noteworthy presentation. But it was all made possible and the reason I'm writing this review is the service. We went with all of Seth's recommendations and his unpretentious guidance made the difference between a really great meal in a city where food is a religion unto itself, and the kind of night the four of us will look back to with fondness for years to come.
Well played, Doris Metropolitan. Well played.
Great Local Restaurant. Appetizers are outstanding, we ordered 5 and all were delicious. Ordered the 4 oz Wagu Beef, cooked correctly and was darn good!
I was in the food industry for 20+yrs and I am a huge foodie. I would highly recommend this place.
Only downside, our waiter was rather new and all over the place. I realize he was trying hard, but if you need help ask for it. I don't like when I order a drink ahead of my food, so when my food arrives I am able to pair them together , by the time I was done with my dish my beverage was just arriving.
Great Place for Business or Pleasure otherwise.
The tuna tartar appetizer was best I have ever had. My fiancé and I both had the 31 day aged ribeye and we more than satisfied. Even the left overs the next day were delicious! To end the evening we wanted something light for dessert. I forgot the name of it but it was vanilla ice cream and espresso- it was the perfect ending to the meal! Very light and fluffy.
We were visiting from Chicago and had noted the aging room when we walked past one day. Normally beef is not my go to in NOLA, but we know beauty and the aging room begged to be explored. I found none of my local friends had even heard or been to the restaurant. I brought on local friend and the rest of were from Chicago or London. all foodies and travelers. the only criticism was that the sweet breads were a little over done. They tasted great but were slightly over done. Best aged meat I've had, ever. Thank you for accommodating us even though most were in casual dress. I am moving to Nola this summer and plan to come when I can.
May be the best steak I have every eaten, definite top 5. The service was outstanding. Very unique menu and cocktails for New Orleans. Excellent decor. Well done and a real experience. Top 5 restaurant I have been to in my life. Go with 31 day aged steak and go hungry.
Outstanding service and possibly the best meal I have ever had. I can't tell you the last time I had desert as I have absolutely no sweet tooth but on the strong recommendation of our server we tried the olive oil cake with lavender ice cream. OMG....IT WAS AWESOME.
Hands down this was the best dinning experience we had in The French Quarter! Our server, Prince, was fantastic. He answered all of our questions without hesitation and made wonderful recommendations.
The food was incredible. Honestly words alone cannot describe how fantastic our meals were.
This is the one place we visited that we will be sure to go back to if we have the pleasure of returning to New Orleans in the future.
I was in New Orleans for 5 nights for NYE and this was hands-down the best restaurant I experienced. I'm speaking on food, impeccable and impressive service and beautiful ambiance/ décor. I was greeted with beautiful smiles from the hostess and wait staff. All were pulled together, polite, knowledgeable about the menu and know their jobs very well.
I was there for lunch and had the best burger I ever ate in my life. My waiter checked in with perfect frequency, checked if my food was to my liking and kept my Pellegrino glass full.
The décor is lovely throughout including the restroom accessed via courtyard.
