Staff is the star - young, polite and attentive staff. I've eaten here 4 times and the meals were all fantastic. Great ingredients, executed well by the kitchen. The menu has a few items that are suspect. I didn't try them, so they could be great, given all items I did have were great. Decent beer selection. However, beware of exot ... read more

Overpriced sub par food in my honest opinion. Tried the gnocchi and blueberry mojito and wouldn’t waste my money again. Atmosphere is pretty cool if you care about that.

Our meal...shrimp tacos for me and pork BBQ Flatbread for my husband...was delicious. We both had dessert which was delicious as well! Our server was also the bartender, Steve, and did a great job. It's a fun place to eat!!

Another wonderful dining experience at The Met! Riley took great care of us on the patio. Outdoor dining was lovely! They even allowed our dog, and had treats and a water bowl for him. The gnocchi with chicken was delicious! We didn’t think we’d find ourselves in Lima, OH again, but were happy to return!!

Decided to stop here on the way to Kentucky. A little off the highway but well worth the drive. The Brussel Sprout salad and the Buffalo chicken dip were sooo good! The donut bread pudding was off the hook!

I used to frequent the Met several years ago before moving to Coloradom I have came back twice in the last 5 years and while the food remains delicious, the service is not great.

I really want to give them a good review but things were just weird. The food ended up being delicious.

The Brussel sprouts came out burnt but the waitr ... read more

I will start off to say, the food was delicious and quality was great! We were there for Mother's Day, they must have been short staffed in kitchen because it took 90 mins from the time we ordered, to get our food. No apologies were offered by wait staff or management. We were patient but at some point the wait got ridiculous. I'd li ... read more

My wife and I had really good food here. We had the spinach/artichoke dip. This is one of those dishes that is like marinara in an Italian joint. If they get this wrong, there is not much hope for the rest of the menu. It was excellent. The cheese on top was brown and bubbly, and the chunks of artichoke inside were delicious. We also ... read more

The Met is one of our favorite restaurants for lunch or dinner. The servers are friendly, the food delicious and the wine, beer and cocktail selections are great.

Second time I've had the pleasure of having lunch at the Met. It's been more than a year and a half between those times thanks to the pandemic. I had a fish sandwich which was delicious. Crisp fries. And a waiter who made certain our drinks never ran dry. We took extra time to have a great lunch and the Met did not disappoint!

I enjoyed the atmosphere here. Their drink menu was different but not in a bad way necessarily. They were strong and made well whether the flavors combinations were my top choice or not. I shared an appetizer with my wife so can’t say much about their food menu. I would absolutely go back for a second try at their menu and drinks.

This is the most inviting, incredible place in lima, hands down. The menu has something for everyone and is the epitome of upscale dining for the average joe.
