Doris Metropolitan currently holds 4.5 stars out of 28 reviews on Yelp, indicating good reviews.

Yelper Yonni D., who reviewed Doris Metropolitan on January 28th, wrote: "Let's start off by saying that this place is awesome. You'll need to read through the menu to understand that the food has Israeli influences. The Jerusalem salad has the right mix of tahini, just like the Israeli salad has the right amount of lemon in it."

And Kate I. wrote: "Great choice for date night. Doris Metropolitan, as you've heard, is not your typical steakhouse. The Middle Eastern influence creates a unique menu and the restaurant has a fancy ambiance--it was perfect for our plans to catch up with friends and try something new for a night out on the town."

Doris Metropolitan is open daily from 5pm-11pm.

Yelper Robyn F., who reviewed Poke In The Bowl on January 30th, wrote: "I'm a lover of all things spicy, so I built my bowl around spicy crab, buttery spicy tuna, and shrimp. Thin slices of jalapeno, lots of fresh cilantro, brown rice, thin ribbons of seaweed and the house spicy sauce (plus lots of extras) made for a light, satisfying, and delicious lunch. The ingredients were bright, fresh and of nice quality. "

And Rachel E wrote: "My bowl (once I finally settled on its contents) was delicious. I highly recommend trying their classic tuna which is super flavorful. I got the regular and it was on the small side, but still enough for a light meal."
