We really enjoy this cafe in the Art Distict. It's set up as a sort of european bistro. Exposed brick walls, open ceilings.
Excellent bratwurst & sauerkraut. Other favorites of ours: lamb gyro, portobello burger, endive salad. Pizza special Tuesday nights.

Metropol is good food, casual atmosphere, and no frills. They have a good wine selection and Rocco the manager always lines up pretty good Jazz for Friday and Saturday evenings. He also spends a lot of time making sure good wines are on

I'd eaten lunch here once before my wife and I shared an overpriced pizza albeit edible. I decided to try breakfast there and it was terrible I've never had a worse hollandaise or been so confused as to how someone could ruin berries and

I must admit I'm not an expert on European cuisine and this was my first time here. But good food is good food. My wife and I went on a Thursday night. It wasn't crowed; maybe just five parties. The waiter was friendly enough. He

Apparently the previous reviewers aren't familiar with European cuisine. This place was great - it wasn't crowded, there was plenty of parking, the wait staff was very friendly, the music rocked and the food was great. It's a European

What a mistake ordering a bottle of wine, the live music was so loud and so terrible that I immediately thought, "We should have bought it by the glass instead, then we could have left sooner." I've been here for lunch, a meal that I have

Cafe Metropol has OK food .. and the restaurant is nice inside.. but it's pricey and even some 'specialty' drinks that are way too pricey.. Service was TERRIBLE and I really don't think I will be back here again.. Plates aren't even clean!

I know someone who used to work here and there was much drama with the employees.. They only listen to one particular employee and let bad employees stay because they are the friends of this girl. Some employees had a PARTY on New Years IN THE RESTAURANT when they were supposed to have locked up. They brought all their friends, etc. Did they get fired? No. In the end they wound up with more hours. Dishwashers are sloppy and not sanitary, kitchen is disorganized, wait staff sometimes rude, and the food expensive. Don't go here - the management can't get past it's own drama.

I read about this restaurant in the LOS ANGLES magazine article. I had heard about the Panini's that the editor commented on so I went with expectations. I was let down they had excellent ingredients but something made it terribly BLAH. I

Pros: Weekend Good Parking, Friendly Service

There isn't much else in the artists's district, but that's no excuse for serving over-priced sandwiches and salads. I've had better at souplantation

Editorial from

Hip Angelenos are always looking for an artsy cafe (in the anti-Starbucks genre), and cafe Metropol, located in the Artists District, just east of Little Tokyo, qualifies. Breakfast is highlighted by croissant sandwiches and vanilla-almond…
