311 Divisadero St. (Page/Oak)
Wine and beer only
Ah, ma petite! If you want french food on a student's
budget, the Metro is for you. Don't let the cheesy neon
sign outside fool you. This place is cozy, friendly and heavy
on the francais.
Cute, clean and quaint. Local art on the walls. I've only been
there in the rainy seasons it seems, but they have an outdoor
patio in back which I'm sure is nice, weather permitting.
Very good values here. Fixed price 3-course meal for $15, cheaper
on Mondays. Lots of meat, red wine sauces and fresh vegetables.
I've never been impressed. I've read a lot of good
reviews for the Metro Café, so I'm not sure where
I've gone wrong, but every time I travel there, I feel
like I traded the quality of food (mediocre) for the service
and price. You get what you pay for, in my experience. But the
crème brulee is mighty tasty.
They're cute and french! Oui oui! Usually pretty friendly,
a little quirky and very competant.
Reservations: Not necessary.
