Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
A modern ballpark with a capacity of more than 45,000, Citi Field is home to the Mets. Located inside the stadium is the Mets Hall of Fame & Museum, which, together with the rotunda, you can visit on a game day with your ticket, or on a guided tour for which you can apply online. The stadium features up-to-date facilities, comfortable seats, and plenty of food choices. The main entrance, known as the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, is dedicated to the first African American man to play in Major League Baseball. Once inside you can admire the statue of the number 42 dedicated to Robinson, as well as his credos, which are etched in the archways. During the game, if a Mets player knocks one out of the park, you’ll see the giant Home Run Apple light up and rise. Even though the stadium has large parking lots, if you’re driving to the game, arrive early so you're sure to get a spot.

  • It's a great stadium with wonderful eateries! Shake Shake is great but the line is so long so take that into account. I take the number 7 train which leaves you directly in front of the entrance to th...  read more »
  • Enjoyed Mets Game after watching US Open Tennis at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Stands near station and is very convenient. but it crowded on that day because of double sports events. 
  • If your a quad or paraplegic and your in any type of wheelchair get to the park and the Citi staff take over. They direct you to disabled parking just steps from the door. If you call ahead it's bette...  read more »
  • What's not to like & more American then going to see a baseball game in a beautiful stadium, especially when your team wins! Citi Field almost feels intimate compared to Yankee Stadium. The place has great burgers, ( there made by Pat, I forgot his last name) but he supplies all the fancy restaurants in NYC with his meat. Almost any seat is a good seat in the whole stadium, & it's real easy to get there on mass transit, ( #7 train) if u live in NYC or Northern Jersey. Plus the Mets are always running deals on tickets & after game activities. I seen Styx after the game the other night, just a good time.
  • Beautiful stadium. Absolutely love it. Prefer it over new Yankees Stadium. There really isn't a bad seat in the park. It feels like a ballpark and not some huge monstrosity. Try to sit down the 3rd base side for day games to avoid the sun. Head to over the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and have your picture taken with the giant "42". The home run Apple from Shea Stadium is outside the stadium. Go find the bases and pitchers mound from Shea stadium in the parking lot. They are marked by plaques. In stadium wifi signal is pretty good.
  • 100 times better the Shea Stadium. Beautiful ball park, and this is coming from a Yankees fan. Prices are slightly expensive for tickets, food and beer. They have excellent food and drink choices. Use mass transit.
  • the worst part was getting in the gate with tickets I purchased on line. What was supposed to get me into the stadium without the line was quite the opposite. Not everything on ticketmaster was self explanatory and even when I printed what was asked for at entrance,they weren't convinced and made me go back to ticket window to get another copy of something that was supposed to be printed up online. And for their error I was charged an additional fee of another $22 on top of the $250 dollars I had already paid on 2 tickets for me and my son. Smh!!! Inside stadium is unbelievable compared to what I remember Shea or Yankee Stadium looking like back around 1988 or 89. Very exciting but at the end of the day it cost with food ,souvenirs, seating & parking damn near $354 😭
  • Although I miss aspects of Shea... the Mets finally got something right. The stadium is gorgeous and the food is top notch. I refuse to wait in line at Shake Shack but Blue Smoke and Momo Fuku are great alternatives.
