Mettawas Station Mediterranean Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Nice location, the building is worth the trip in itself. The food was good, but it was more pub style offerings on the menu than we expected, albeit high quality pub food with an italian twist. Good local beers on tap and local wines on offering.

We were greeted like they knew us. Had a lovely table. Had a knowledgeable and friendly waitress. She explained all that we wanted to know about the menu and best of all the food was great.
It was an extremely hot evening and the restaurant air conditioning could not keep out the heat but this was explained to us and we were offered patio seating which we did use for dessert and it was lovely out there as well. Will be going back with friends again for sure. :)

I took my mom there for a special dinner. The food was amazing and it was good price for the quantity and quality. Amazing wine list, beer on tap and service. We got to sit outside, enjoying the beautiful weather and company. We can't wait to go back and both know what we'll be ordering next!

Not only was our server very efficient but very accomodating. , we have never been disappointed eating at this restaurant. We usually eat indoors but we ate on the patio this time. the seating could be a little more comfortable but being outside having cushions to bring in and out would be asking a lot of the staff I would assume. The restaurant's ambiance being a restored train depot in itself is worth the drive from Amherstburg. The food as always didn't disappoint, the food was very tasty, the appetizer portions were a little too big as I could not finish 1/2 of my main course , but then I got to enjoy that the next day.
I would prefer a different draught beer selection but that's to each other's own taste. The wine selection like usual was very good and priced reasonably .... We will definitely return.

Found Mettawas Station Restaurant when I googled restaurants in Leamington area. The restaurant itself is in Kingsville, just a short drive away located among neighbourhood houses. Casual seating and warm atmosphere. Quality of food was great, very fresh ingredients and variety of choices on the menu. Our lamb appetizer was quite good and spicy which my husband loved. Big portions, couldn't finish all of my meal. Staff very friendly and attentive. If you are visiting Pelee Island then make this a stop on your visit you won't be disappointed.

We love Mettawas but our Sunday visit the big table behind us was way too noisy for us. They were having a good time but we couldn't hear ourselves think let alone talk. Should have seated us outside or in a different spot. Also, we have always had great food, never a complaint. This time however we had a problem. There were four of us. My daughter-in-law and I had the Lobster Ravioli with extra garlic. When our orders came, Hers had usual amount of the wonderful cheese sauce - mine had pretty much none. As they were likely Made together , when it was prepared - the chef put most in the other dish and mine kind of dry. No care was taken. I sent it back and he made a quick thin cheese sauce and brought it back. Was ok but not the same. No effort made to compensate either. Everyone was almost done eating when I got my order back. The waitress was great not her fault. Anyway, One of my fav meals at your place was ruined. Swierina Stratford

I'm from Kingsville. My girlfriend is from Windsor. She had never been. We both had a great time ! Food was delicious, service was amazing. I ordered an 8oz steak. They ran out and just went ahead and gave me a 10oz for same price as the 8. She's already told all her friends in Windsor and we are planning a double date soon. Cheers !

The food and service were exceptional. The staff was very accommodating when I changed my reservation for an earlier time. We brought our friends from out of town and they were very impressed. Will definitely go back.

A great setting for fine dining, or just for drinks on the patio. Our party of 7 was seated promptly, and all the food served was top notch. One of my group is a constant skeptic and hard to please. Well, the Mettawas shut her down. Not a complaint about anything. Our server was a sweetheart and she knew everything that was asked about the menu. Be sure to make reservations since this place draws a crowd, especially on weekends.

I came here for dinner with my sister and we both really enjoyed ourselves! Our server was sweet, the wine and food were awesome. I had the Penne Athena and think $17 is a little steep for a simple, meatless pasta but it was delicious!

A great dinner for 4! We started with great tasting beer on tap. We enjoyed the New York Strip Steaks and the Spring Menu Lamb Shank with local wine. Delicious! Our server was excellent - attentive and courteous. A great Kingsville restaurant and we appreciate that wines from our region are featured! Looking forward to our next visit!
Attended for a quiet dinner on a Saturday night. We were quickly seated after confirming our Open Table reservation and the great service continued from there. Appetizers of Caesar Salad were very tasty and the steak/salmon for the main entrée was done to perfection. I have absolutely no complaints about my experience at this restaurant and would recommend it for anyone looking for an enjoyable evening out with good food and good service.
Not Worth The Drive
I thought the atmosphere would be nice, it was ok. My table was right in front of a the bar where they pick up their drinks. I didn't ask for a seat in the bar and if this is considered part of the dining area, that's terrible. I made a reservation and did not expect to be sitting where I was. Service seemed slow, seemed like forever for my appetizer and then once we received it things seems to flow better. I got the veal chop which was excellent and my husband got rack of lamb. The lamb was overcooked, we ordered medium and he received well. My husband is the type not to complain, I felt he should have at $39.00, you should. Ordered cheesecake for dessert, sauce was a little too sweet. Overall, its not worth the money, I can eat a nice veal chop and lamb at places in Windsor and not have to drive as far.
I don't know if I will take the time to drive out for lunch but if I am in the area I might stop in and give the patio a try.

This restaurant has a very unique look, being an old train station. The menu is also very unique with something for everyone. It was one of those restaurants where you wanted to try everything, and everything we tried was EXCELLENT! I was not overly impressed by the service, but because of the food, I would give it another try. The fact that you could book the reservations online was also an added bonus!

We enjoyed our meals a little costly but it was prepared nicely, week nights as compared to weekends make s a big difference! All in all we did enjoy it our server was great but maybe not informed but all was well!!

We decided to go to Mettawas Station for lunch to celebrate my Sisters' 50th Wedding Anniversary with her husband. There was 6 people in our party and they were able to accommodate us with no problems. We had an awesome lunch. We wanted to also go for a wine tour of our local wineries, and this was our first stop along the way. The restaurant had a great vibe to it, the staff was great and the food was excellent. We will definitely be going again!
The balsamic and maple glazed salmon on ...
The balsamic and maple glazed salmon on spinach quinoa risotto sauce was cooked to perfection, tender and moist, complimented with a beet yogurt. The linguini Pescatore with jumbo shrimps, scallops, clams and mussels in a light tomato basil sauce was hearty and the pasta cooked proper al dente . Both dishes were flavourful, delicious and reasonably abundant. Fresh, warm bread with a sundried tomato olive oil dip was too tasty to leave a crumb. Salads included with the meals were fresh mixed greens with excellent house made dressings of balsamic vinaigrette and chunky blue cheese. Wine and beer selections are limited but sufficient. Service was professional, friendly and attentive. The interior decor is made warm and rich with an endless oak finish and nostalgic decorative touches fitting of this historic former train station with it's original fieldstone exterior. The dining experience was pleasing and inviting a return visit.
Consistently great food!
Have eaten here numerous times with the latest being lunch with my daughter for her birthday (25). We each had soup then shared a salad and a pizza, plenty to eat. Waiter was exceptional, thank you Bruno.
A little cool yet to enjoy their lovely patio so I'll have to come back . One of my favorite restaurants!
Little disappointed that I had indicated on the reservation it was for her birthday but no mention was made .
Fab ladies out to dinner
Food was good 3 had the lamb and all said it was excellent while one had salmon , one had veal and those meals were good too. Drinks were ordered but no lime for the vodka tonic....how does one serving mixed drinks runout of lime, especially with a grocery store around the corner??? The tables inside are very close together and feels very crowded, like your eating with strangers but would recommend this restaurant in the warm weather when you can enjoy your meal outside.
I'll be back
Coming to Kingsville for a business trip/personal getaway, I found the restaurant online, was happy to be able to book a reservation online. My Italian husband is a great cook and a real foodie, and he was very favourably impressed with the lamb. I really enjoyed my dinner as well, and the local wine we drank with it was very nice indeed. The service was excellent. The only complaint I might have was our table, a small two seater next to the fireplace. It felt rather like it was put there as an afterthought and it was almost like we were slightly in the way. When I return to Kingsville, I will definitely be back.
The food and ambiance added to a wonderful evening out with friends. We all agreed that the food was very well prepared and presented. Our waitress was accommodating and moved us away from a doorway that was breezy. She was exceptional about explaining the menu and wine list and presented the meals in a timely manner. We would all gladly return but would probably again choose a weekday evening to avoid a crowded restaurant. Thank you for providing a lovely place to enjoy an evening with good friends.
Good Night to be Indoors
We were looking for some place a little off the beaten track and found it here in Kingsville. The online menu looked very complete and very, very appetizing. Our server was very knowledgeable, attentive and effecient. The 8oz. filet with peppercorn sauce I ordered seemed to me to be more like a 12oz, but...who was I to argue. Reasonable prices, excellent menu choices, and a cozy fire going in the background. It doesn't get much better than this. Thank you, Mettawas Station.
Always great food!
This is not our first time here so we are familiar with the quality of the food that Anthony and Janet put out.
We reserved a table for 8 on the bar side y the fireplace where we find it cozy and more intimate for large group conversations.
Local wines are available at a reasonable prices which is great to see. Everyone enjoyed their meals as well as the after dinner brandies and coffee.
Looking forward to the opening of the patio!

Great place and will go again. Only issue is the parking lot is small and there are no lights. The restaurant needs to invest in lighting and a sign out front. The restaurant is back off the road a little bit first time there and I drove by. Other than that I will be back!
