Just don't go! – WARNING - Just don't go - learn from my mistake. Went for a private party and had a horrible experience. Having worked as a bartender for 3 years, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Alas, all two bartenders continuously disappointed even the most understanding customer! The best term to describe the service - RUDE. And the management - UNPROFESSIONAL. The only exception - the bouncers. Very professional and courteous. I you want to host a party, don't use Metronome! You will be let down. Oh, and by the way - bring your jacket. 3/4 fo the party had to keep their jackets on b/c management left the heat off.
great place... good eats – went for my birthday with a group of about 10. food and service were really good, although the waitress was a bit of a ditz. drinks were also good but the wine list and availability of the cheaper wine isn't. i must warn that the lame bar/lounge is not worth wasting time in.
Classy and nice – Bartender was very friendly, poured well. The Jazz was very pleasing. Classy without feeling stuffy. And I was surprised how low the bill was, given the typical prices of drinks in that area (and NY, in general).
10 – Very elegant club/restaurant with great music and dancing. The appetizers and dinner were delicious. With great service and ambience.
2nd Fridays are cool! – Went there and had a good time, once the DJ finally got the crowd warmed up and was consistent. this was my second time going there and I've had fun both times.
Skimpy drinks ruin a wonderful place – $8 and $10 martinis in tiny glasses containing virtually no alcohol. The manager said "I've never heard this complaint before, but anyway, next time you come, just ask for me at the door and I will make sure that if, indeed, there is such a policy here, it will not be applied to you." AS CLOSE as you can get to an admission of guilt. Did he reduce or tear-up the bill? No. My girlfriend says 'they'd probably go broke if they tore up all the bills of people who complain about this.' We left a nice tip (it wasn't the waitress' fault) and went on our un-merry way (we had come only to drink). Except for the drinks, Metronome is really a pleasant place: Vast, beautifully appointed, jazz band with good girl vocalist that night, tho a little too loud. Next time I'll just have bottled beer.
KIND OF DIFFERENT – WENT HERE LAST SATURDAY FOR A BIGSTAN PARTY. MUST SAY THE PLACE IS REALLY NICE, AND THE BOUNCERS AND LINE PEOPLE WERE DOWN TO EARTH. BEING THAT WE WERE ON BIGSTANS GUEST LIST WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS GETTING. MAYBE NEXT TIME I RETURN TO THIS CLUB I'LL MAKE IT A DAY AND HAVE DINNER AS WELL AS DRINKS FROM THE BAR AND LASTLY HIT THE DANCE FLOOR. I THINK THIS PLACE DESERVES AT LEAST ONE VISIT BY EVERYONE AND LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
In a pinch – It was last minute but they came through for me and
my not very well dinner plans for my fiancees' 30th birthday. They were able to set us and 6 others with a great table in a pinch.The staff catered to our every need and made us feel like VIP's. My fiancee was impressed with my assumed planning. Thank you!
All-In-One – This place gave us one of the best nights in New York all under one roof. We began our night in the bar lounge listening to great live jazz music (with the setup being really cool). Then moving over to our dinner table. Really romantic. Then finishing our night off dancing in the club to great music. We can't wait to go back and do it all over again!
Absolutely horrible! – A small group (6-8 people) went to Metronome for a friend's birthday. The service was absolutely incompetent. They never brought out the flowers that had been delivered to the restaurant for the birthday girl (which caused a huge fight between her and her out-of-town boyfriend, since she thought he forgot her birthday). It took them forever to take our order, and even longer to bring out the food, even though the restaurant was nowhere near full. While Metronome did allow us to bring in an outside birthday cake (so long as we paid a plating fee), the staff required numerous prompts to (1) bring out the cake for dessert and (2) return the leftover cake to the birthday girl at the end. Yes, the decor was fabulous and the live music great, but the terrible service overshadowed everything.
