We vistited "The met" sunday around 6:00 pm. The waitress was very friendly and the staff accomodated us by bringing more chairs. Unfortunately, there is only one or two waitresses covering the large outside area. We asked many times for the table to be cleared and it was hard finding an available waiter to get us the bill. As for... More

I come here every time I am in Beirut, and every time I leave happy and satisfied by good food and extra friendly staff. 5 stars from me and keep it up this way. Much different from other restaurants right next to it.

We went for the sushi conveyor, same items keep rolling until you eat them and only then new ones show up. We ate everything until we were full then when new people came in we saw the chef serving the new items. Should work more on the variety.

the sushi tastes well. what I didn't like is the service was very slow. although I have visited the met resto with friends for dessert and the service was great. this time was different maybe because am solo. duno. but i still like this resto. hopefully the service will be better next visit.

After an evening of wandering the Beirut Souk we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. A decent menu selection of both traditional Lebanese dishes as well as an offering of Western style food. Good service and well presented and tasty meals with a good portion size. Enjoyable place to eat with both inside and outside dining areas as well... More

We got billed a bottle of water we didn't order, and when we payed our bill (20.83$) with a 50$ bill we got only 15000LL (10$) as rest, thinking we were Europeans for not speaking Lebanese. (The girl is Italian) Food was ok, but so unprofessional. Never coming back.

The Met for me is an average restaurant, the service is okay, waiters can be smiling more and more attentive, they always seem rushed or impatient... The service counter in the back is next to the dips of the salad bar, so you have the dips and the dirty dishes next to them, not very appealing... Salad bar can be... More

As far as sushi (and I love sushi) goes. This place ranks highly in my top 10 in Lebanon. We took the open sushi formula (currently 25$ but subject to change). The food was Cold, Fresh, Had no smell. The variety offered was as good if not better than most open sushi formulas. Although I must admit there was almost... More
