Wine selection is small, but they make an excellent risotto and scallops.

**Update** Rob, thank you for reaching out! After reading your reply I realized that I marked 3 stars instead of 4 and have now corrected it. Overall, I had a good experience at your restaurant. Our server, Chris, did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and personable. I ordered the smoked sirloin for dinner and ... read more

Delicious! We had an excellent server too. I had the chicken salad on a croissant with a side salad, one in our party had the soup of the day and salad and one had a flat bread pizza. The restaurant is well done, reasonably priced and was a lovely place for lunch.

I had the smoked brisket sandwich last night. The brisket was fantastic!! The gnocchi with pesto sauce is pretty good too. Prices are just a bit high.

Went there twice this week and loved it both times. First off a fall sangria is a must. The pumpkin gnocchi was really good and so was the harvest salad. Both nights the servers were excellent. Great atmosphere!

Great Food, Great People
Some friends and I were in Lima last weekend for a square dance festival. We ate at The Met Friday night because it was a short walk from our hotel. They're located in an historic building with decor related to the area's history. There were an interesting selection of craft beers on tap, as well as a tasty hard cider. Our waiter, Ch ... read more

The restaurant is in a cute downtown area, with a nice outside seating area. They are working with a very limited staff, struggling to keep up. I ordered the Met burger with no bun or cheese.

Superb dining experience - best in Lima. We ate there on a Saturday at 8:30 pm. The Bacon infused Bloody Mary ($10) was unique but a bit too Smokey for my liking so I will try the non-bacon version next time.
