Hidden gem on the north shore!
After attending a wedding at The Metropolitan before our wedding, we knew this place was a wonderful option. After visiting various venues, we always went back to The Metropolitan. John was amazing to work with from start to finish. He made us feel like family. Our favorite feature was that it was one event per day. The day of the wedding, Gail, John and our bridal attendant were phenomenal. They made sure that we ate (very important for us, especially since the food is DELICIOUS), had a drink, and danced. Thank you all for ensuring that we had the best night of our lives!!Sent on 11/01/2019

The Hidden Gem of Long Island Venues!
If there is one catering hall on Long Island that is overlooked, it is The Metropolitan in Glen Cove, but it shouldn’t be. Everyone should check out this place before choosing your wedding venue. This single-event venue has style, elegance and is reasonably priced. The building has unique architectural characteristics that combine a classic and modern feel, great for on-site ceremonies and photographic moments. The staff, in particular the Director John Casale, was endlessly accommodating from the first tour to the day after the wedding. He had answers and suggestions for every question and concern we had leading up to the big day. The food by far is the best we have eaten at a Long Island affair and our guests cannot stop raving about it! The wedding went so smoothly that we got to fully enjoy every aspect of the day, which we will be forever grateful for.Sent on 04/17/2019

Breath of Fresh Air
The Metropolitan was the closest to perfection you can get. I was originally booked with a different venue and chose to cancel due to some management issues. When I met John he was a breath of fresh air. He was so good I thought he was too good to be true but let me tell you, he’s the real deal. I loved working with him and everything was so convenient. My guests were raving about the food and abundance of it all night. I’ve even had comments of it being the best food they’ve ever had. My maitre’d, Barbara was on it!! She coordinated everything and all of my things that I brought with me to set up beautifully. Maritza was my bridal attendant. She was with me the majority of the time but went missing once in a while when I could’ve used help but nothing crazy.Sent on 02/08/2019
