Doris Metropolitan Ratings and Reviews

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!!

The Steak is one of the best anywhere. They age it to perfection & it has a lot of flavor. If you love wine their selection is pretty extensive from all over the world. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the wine & the menu. Our waiter was extremely consciences about making sure we were well taken care of. The décor of the place is cozy & warm. My only complaint is they really need to work on the sides that you order with your steak. It is almost an after thought unlike the rest of the menu. That was the difference between 4 & 5 stars.

Every meal I have had here has been better than the one before. Latest experience was excellent. A great addition to NOLA French Quarter dining scene with a truly distinctive taste. I give it my highest recommendation.

We took a long weekend in the French Quarter and this was our favorite dining experience. Everything from staff to ambiance to the food was excellent. Definitely look forward to going again and would absolutely recommend to a friend.

Our experience was exceptionally satisfying, without a doubt we would go back and also recommend to friends and family or anyone coming from out of town.
We live here in NOLA and have access to many fine dining locations, this is one that will remain at the top of our list. One minor issue involving several gnats that we quickly saw on their way to bug heaven . It may have been from the fresh flowers. We were seated by the window on Chartre St and the looks from passerby's of WOW on their faces was priceless.

A friend recommended Doris Metro to us and we were completely impressed. We arrived 45 min early and sat at the bar which is where we ended up eating. The owners introduced themselves to us and we caught the spirit of their mission with the brand. Very impressive men and we are proud to have shared some time with the owners and staff of this extraordinary establishment! Two locals told us that Doris was their favorite restaurant before we arrived and now we know. The food was incredible, the service unmatched and the vibe was too cool! Well done Doris and Itamar!!

Great steak! Everything from the time of arrival to the end of the meal was great. Service was prompt and not over done. Steaks were prepared exactly to order and delivered in a timely manner. We are going to bring a group next visit to try the "meat plate" that was served at the neighboring table.

What piqued my interest was the availability of sweet breads. My dinner started with a decent Martini (cold but not glacial, and without Tanqueray) and an Abita Amber (local beer). I was served an assortment of breads, butters, and dipping olive oil, fresh tomato paste, and balsamic vinegar — breads were interesting; the butters were decent, and the dipping oil mix was very good. Next, I had the sweet breads (noix) — very tender and flavorful. The sweet breads were served on a demi-glace that was very good. This dish also had an assortment of details, like creamy, cheesy boba, but the highlights were the sweetbreads themselves, and the demi-glace. The entrée was fresh Gulf fish served with Israeli couscous. This was an interesting dish — quite a departure from the way I typically eat fish. This fish was very well prepared, with a very intense, multi-dimensional hot spiciness. I finished my meal with the Kadaif nest. It was very good, but could have benefitted from a firmer cream — Chantilly perhaps. Kudos to my table server (Paul) who was extremely efficient and unobtrusive.

I have been to Doris Metropolitan at least 5 times, however my last visit I did not experience the personal service from my waitress. I had hope to impress my date with the usual presentation of the food menu and the varieties of steaks etc. Overall I love this restaurant, we had a great time, and I can't get a better steak in New Orleans!
