I suspect that I have been here years ago when I was wandering around Sydney one morning looking for a place to grab some breakfast. Well, actually, maybe not, but this place is very familiar and seems like it has been around for ages. The reason it is familiar is because of the courtyard with the waterfall at the back that opens up into Town Hall Square. Anyway, even though the place is familiar I decided to stop by for breakfast before heading off on my explorations. I ended up having the big breakfast, namely because there wasn’t much else that seemed to interest me. I also grabbed a coffee, though I was a little disappoint that they didn’t provide me with a glass of water since the breakfast was pretty help. In the end, nothing all that flash, but a decent place for a bite.
Dont order the New York club sandwich, its disgusting, thick pieces of bread with crust, loosely piled up with very scant filling, worst I've ever seen, it fell apart while trying to eat it. Served with potato wedges. Don't know if they have new management or new cook who has no idea and then they charged $17.50 for it. My friend and I used to meet for lunch regularly but won't be anymore, the standards have gone down. Also time they cleaned their booths, the backs are starting to look grubby.
At first I thought the establishment would be a peaceful, nice dining experience because the backdrop is a waterfall and looked different compared to other places. I am also an American and wanted to support my fellow American expats by dining here. I think it is franchised or something and the people that run it aren't Americans or New Yorkers and if they are they need to learn better customer service skills.
I went towards the restaurant and a woman gave me an up&down look that was insulting. She said to just sit wherever I wanted so I took a seat outside. She took my order a few minutes later and without acknowledging what I ordered, walked away. She brought me my glass of water and I said "Thank you." No response from her. Again, she just walked away. Confused as to why she was so rude I made another effort to thank her when she brought out my food. No response. The foodread more
I really enjoyed my meal at the New York Metro. It definitely had a New York diner feeling. I think they must have recently re-furbished the restaurant. The pasta was good. The wine was nice. The seating in booths VERY comfortable and clean. NIce atmosphere too. The one thing that really stood out to me though was that the manager 'Steve' who took the time to introduce himself to me and told me to feel very comfortable and welcome in his restaurant.
