Although there were 6 of us we were seated fairly quickly especially considering the place was almost full and it is almost the end of peak season. Our server, Debbie was fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. Service was fast and the food was fabulous. The San Francisco Eggs Benedict were delicious, the poached eggs were cooked to perfection (thank you, Mark for your terrific rendition). We are sorry they only opened last week, we are seasonal and won't be able to try it again until the Fall.

It is a new place & it is still snowbird season so the place was packed. We went at 11:30 for lunch so beat the biggest rush. We still had to wait for 20 minutes or so but that was expected.....probably will slow down in May. The place itself is not really big but also has an outside area also. Everything we had was very good....only complaint was that my husband had meatloaf & needed more gravy....they charged us $1 for that....crazy in our opinion. The service was okay but a bit too slow to get drink refills or any other request including getting the check (except for the time to get the meal...fast).

They did a great job for opening day. You can tell this is a company that cares about their business and about their customers. I will definitely return once season has ended and they have some time to shake out the last kinks.

Perhaps because it is new or perhaps because it is peak season, this place was mobbed. So, if you are ready for a 45 minute wait for lunch (beware, while waiting for my table for 45 minutes I listened to the server tell everyone who came it it would be 15 minutes - among the all time great lies) then this may be your place. Another demographic who may enjoy the Metro Diner is those who are deaf or wishing to be so. The volume and acoustics are insane and negate any positives the food may bring, which is just okay. The bottom line is that there are far too many other choices in Venice to endure the negatives of the Metro Diner.

We were impressed with the food which was excellent but the service was also very good. This is a new restaurant and it seemed like they had a trainer for each server. It was Friday night and it was bombed but they handled the rush. Very impressed!
