Diner Reviews
  • "The appetizers were fantastic. The Hanger Steak was perfect. Unfortunately the sushi left a lot to be desired. Even the spicy tuna roll was very bland. I'd definitely go back, but I'd stay off the sushi menu."

  • "We went for a Birthday celebration, and we each were satisfied with the whole experience, food and cocktails. You must try the sushi which Metro has put their own delicious and exciting spin on each roll. My husband enjoyed the prime rib, and my mother-in-law was very pleased with the rack of lamb."

  • "We ate here on a long weekend as we passed through Roanoke. The menu had so many tempting items we ordered way too much! Shrimp and grits was delicious, a little different with kale in it. The mussels appetizer was delicious. Fried green tomatoes was a huge plate-ful with tasty tomatoes, homemade mozzarella and greens. The fried oysters were good and the dim sum sampler a delicious, large presentation. The gazpacho was unusual with watermelon, but so tasty! We were a party of 3 and shared everything, and could not finish it all. I would love to eat here again and recommend it to anyone."

  • "Seldom has a local chef been so impressive and creative. Stopped for an overnight and fell in love. Squash blossoms stuffed with lobster--not cloying or a gimmick, just plain good. Beef marrow roasted in the bone and split for serving with crostini--don't be afraid--a little healthy bone fat will add years to your life. And the Foie Pho--fun, interesting and very yummy. And, last but not least, for pork belly lovers, the main with squash and beans. The belly was so good it did not need the bbq sauce, but easy to scrape that off. So sorry no room left for the fried oysters. Back to Metro on my next trip south."

  • "We took one of our friends out to Metro for her BDay. She had never been, but kept hearing great things about "Metro" since she had moved to Roanoke from DC 2 years ago. What a great BDay experience for her. Fantastic food & drinks. The staff at Metro are OUTSTANDING."

  • "We have been to Metro for several years, but during our last visit we discovered the food is still tasty but the quantity has decreased. You hate to pay $38 for a steak and then have your husband and son leave hungry! The cigar boxes they used to serve the bread left me with a bad feeling since the one they gave us had fingerprints on it when it was served at our table. You would think they could at least wipe the boxes off but they obviously don't! How gross! We still love the ambience and wine selections and the food was still upscale."

  • "The food and cocktails were very good - I had a scollop dish and my friend had a walnut salad and sushi roll. Service was excellent. But the overall feel of the restaurant has so much going on that it makes an impression of trying too hard - disco ball, bread in cigar boxes, crazy blue tile bathroom, triangle butter, etc. In my opinion, they can take it down a notch, make the environment more relaxed, and let the food speak for itself. This was my first time in Roanoke and I was in town for work."

  • "Big menu but only a few dishes that we had were even fair. Fish tacos suffered from scorched and "gassy" tortillas plus bland fish. Ceviche was good as was bouillabaisse. Soft shell crab wasn't crisply done. Fried oysters had a good taste but were over done. Cauliflower had good tastes but suffered from the same "gassy" taste as well. Good service and a very nice room."

  • "I brought my wife here for our anniversary and the staff could not have treated us better. They made us feel special and the food was excellent. We can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The dim sum was amazing. When we started the night off with that we thought that it would be amazing. Both my wife and I got our entrees and they were ok. Nothing phenomenal like the first course. I would have to say that other than the dim sum, the jewel of our night was bailey. The service was great from her."

  • "My 17 year old chose to celebrate the end of a great school year with dinner at Metro. The hip ambiance is just her style. Much to choose from but she ordered from the special sushi roll menu (and at half price before 6:30 a real bargain) my husband loved his shrimp and grits while I ordered fried oysters to share and Mussels as an entree. Cremery brûlée for dessert...everything delicious! Thanks to Dexter for the great service. Hadn't been down here for awhile. Glad we checked it out again."

  • "Our party of three enjoyed a wonderful meal. The service was outstanding, ambience was just right, and the food was absolutely the best. We highly recommend Metro for those special occasions when you deserve the very best."

  • "My first trip to roanoke,in years and picked Metro after reading reviews! A great evening, with our friends and the only issue we all had, was making a choice from their huge menu!"

  • "This was a great restaurant. Matthew was an attentive waiter. The food was different and fun. I look forward to returning for an evening occasion."

  • "My date ordered the lobster mac, the lobster was overcooked and tough and the Mac was watery and flavorless... I wouldn't recommend it. Then I got the 10oz steak frites and he ordered the kobe burger. He said the burger was good. The steak was pretty good, the fries were great. I ordered the goombay smash cocktail, it was delicious. Our waiter was great! Waters were always full, very attentive and helpful. Although there was only 1 other group in the restaurant... He was a 5 star waiter. "

  • "My boyfriend and I intended only to spend the day in Roanoke, but found the city quite charming, so decided to make it into a special Easter weekend! While grabbing a drink at the Hotel Roanoke's Pine Room Pub, we were trying to decide where to go for dinner. We had it narrowed down to a few places and then settled on Metro (we'd wanted to go earlier in the day, but missed the lunch hours). We didn't know what to expect, but had read good reviews and once we got there we were ecstatic! The service was incredible! The whole staff was so attentive and caring. The food was AMAZING, the wine list was impressive, and the cocktails were not to be missed out on! We really enjoyed it and will definitely go back next time we visit Roanoke!"

  • "The risotto and bouillabaisse were both wonderful! I just wish they would turn off the big screen TV and play more appropriate music."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I had the most amazing experience at metro on Monday. The weather was perfect to sit out on the patio which was set nicely and had candles on every table. Our server Matthew was very knowledgable about the menu and was able to help us pick out a bottle of wine to pair well with our first and second courses. The cheese plate we started out with was incredible with five different types of cheeses and plenty of extras to try with the cheeses. The entrees we chose ( beef short rib and filet) were tasty and cooked perfectly. I will definitely recommend metro to friends and can't wait to come back again!"

  • "Came for brunch with a friend and I was not disappointed. I always enjoy bringing family, friends, or my special someone along with me as we are always treated with amazing service and great food. Jared waited on us and was very attentive throughout while not being obtrusive. Class act"

  • "We were entertaining out-of-town co-workers, and wanted them to have a favorable impression of the dining scene in Roanoke. Choosing Metro! seemed like the perfect choice - especially on St. Patrick's Day when so many other venues would be packed, we opted for a quiet restaurant where we could discuss business, and even celebrate one of our co-worker's birthday. The food was excellent. We had 3 appetizers to share - A California Roll, Bleu Cheese Gnoochi, and a Cheese Plate with Crostini Bread. Our guests raved over the Bleu Cheese Gnoochi. Dinner was scrumptious. I was particularly fond of the She Crab Soup. The service was as good as the food! Can't go wrong, choosing Metro!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We hadn't been to the Metro in a year or so,but the menu still contained some excellent choices for a special occasion dinner. I can recommend the lamb shanks, maybe the best I've ever had and it's a favorite of mine.Also the walnut salad, very delicious. It was an early dinner, so it wasn't very busy, and the service was top notch."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "First and foremost the service was impeccable. Born and raised in Texas I think of myself as a steak conasaur and the 16oz was honestly the best steak I have ever had and that says a lot coming from me. The atmosphere is amazing and has a relaxing romantic setting however if your looking for alittle after hours fun the bar turns into a fun entertaining place after hours. I would recommend this place to anyone that appreciates great service, and amazingly great food. The price was less than what I expected. ( wine, appetizer, main course, and desert came in around 88.00 for 2 people ) such great service I tipped 40.00. So if your from out of town and looking for a great place this is definitely it."

  • "I dined at this wonderful establishment this past week with a few friends and it was everything I hoped it would be. Fantastic environement, fabulous service, and the most creative and exquisite food and drink selections available in the Roanoke valley. To say my company and I had a terrific experience wouldn't express the degree of satisfaction that can be had at Metro!. We will certainly return for both dinner and nightlife. Thank you so much."

  • "I had an absolute wonderful time at metro! The food was soo delicious and the atmosphere fit perfectly with the lovely dinner I anticipated with my friends and coworkers. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for any occasion. The bar had a wonderful selection and the lounge area was very warming. Thank you Metro for my lovely evening with my friends and coworkers."

  • "My Friends and I came to eat one a quite Tuesday night, The Staff was amazing, serviced our every need (even when some members of our party were very late) They kept us entertained and happy, the food was perfect, and all in all an amazing time for my friends and I."

  • "I came here with a few friends for a nice celebratory dinner. It was a tuesday night, so there weren't many people. We were sat upstairs which was nice since we felt we had the place to ourselves. Dexter was our server. He was amazing and extremely knowledgeable, giving us all great advice. We all started with drinks, in which I ordered off their specialty cocktails. They have one of the better selections in town. The food was amazing and came out really quick. Everything was cooked to order and cooked with extreme care. Overall, our experience was amazing and we/I will definitely be returning again without a doubt."

  • "I have gone to Metro before to eat and every time the food is great and so is the service. The servers all know the menu very well. They have a large menu and the time it took to get our food was very reasonable. I would recommend anyone looking for good food and a nice night out, to check out Metro! The chef even came out and talked to our table to make sure that the food was okay. Which of course it was great!"

  • "Food was amazing. I had the short rib sandwiches as an appetizer, followed by the delicious boulliabaise. Service was great as well. Our server, Taylor, was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and drink list. We could hear and see the open kitchen from our table, which was a great experience. The ambiance was very fun and provided an extremely enjoyable environment for my date and I. I strongly recommend metro! To anyone looking for a great meal."

  • "Was sat on the upper level with a view of the kitchen and bar. It was fun watching the staff prepare our drinks and our meal. I had the mussels as am appetizer. Every mussel in the bowl was opened and ready to eat. The saffron broth was delicious. For an entree I had a beautiful sashimi bowl. Our server was very helpful in identifying the various cuts of fish and roe. My lychee martini was smooth, not to sweet, and complemented my meal. The bite-sized chocolate pot de creme was just enough to finish our meal. I will definitely be back to enjoy the comfortable, yet elegant, dining room and try some of the beers they have on tap."

  • "We celebrated our 5th year anniversary at Metro! and our experience was wonderful. The lobster ceviche appetizer was to die for, the main course of steak and scallops was prepared exactly as we requested and the steak was hands down the best steak I've had in Roanoke. The staff was extremely polite and attentive throughout our entire dinner. I can't think of any part of the experience that I could complain about."

  • "My sister, her fiancé, and I went in for dinner tonight at 6. We were welcomed by Kirby, who was the manager on duty, and sat up at a table on the second floor. Dinner was great (I had the lentil soup and venison). Honestly the best venison I've had in a long time. Food service was quick for a Saturday night and our waitress was very friendly. Definitely a great place for a special dinner or celebration."

  • "I've eaten at metro before for the sushi, which is excellent but this time I went for something heartier and was amazed. For my salad course I ordered a wedge salad which turned out to be a very unique and delicious twist with tempura onion rings and roasted tomatoes. The portion was more than generous. My entree was a feature that night; a 16oz blackened rib eye with winter vegetables and multicolored fingerlings. The vegetables were the best accompaniment I've had of its kind; brussels sprouts, snow peas, and beautiful little carrots. The potatoes were impressive with a rose, purple, and yellow collage of color. A very foodie touch. The steak was perfectly trimmed and blackened. Best part of the meal. The team of servers were excellent!!"

  • "Our experience at Metro! was awesomeeee. We came in for 1/2 price sushi and Dexter, our server, suggested some DELICIOUS ROLLS! The crab rangoon, dragon, and rainbow rolls were amazing, as was everything else. Dessert was great and we left so stuffed we had to roll out of there. Dexter was a great server and provided us with an enojyable experience. We will definiltey come back!!"

  • "My wife and I typically go out on the weekends so I surprised her with a Wednesday night meal at Metro. The hostess, Kirby, was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Our server, Cortni, was also very friendly and attentive to our needs. She was knowledgeable about the beer/wine offerings and the menu, answering all of our questions. I ordered the steak frites and it was cooked perfectly, medium as I requested, and it was delicious. My wife had the striped bass and mushroom risotto. I don't eat a lot of fish but I tried some of her dish and it was also cooked well. The chef, JD, came to our table and asked us about our meal. We complimented him and the staff for a wonderful dining experience. I most certainly recommend Metro."

  • "We love Metro! We were sat upstairs with a spectacular view of the whole restaurant! From the kitchen to the bar it was really cool to sit upstairs where you can see all the magic happen! Ben was a very attentive server and the manager Kirby visited us quite a few times to check on us as well! All of our food was delicious but took half of it home because our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. Metro is truly something different with their ever changing menu, crazy cocktails and being the only place downtown to literally go from fine dining to an amazing bar for late night."

  • "We had a table of 5 on a quiet Tuesday evening, all of us in the food service business with more than a few years of experience in the food industry. The food was excellent, it was presently wonderfully and tasted as well as it was presented. The service was on point and attentive without being overbearing. Our dinner selections ranged from pasta to sushi & fish; all of which ate as well as it looked. The dessert course at the end was a really nice touch to finish a very good meal. Thank you!"

  • "Metro is something truly unique in Roanoke. The food, service, and ambiance were all outstanding. My date and I were seated upstairs which gave us a view of the entire restaurant, including the open kitchen. It was really cool to watch our meal be prepared. The cocktails menu has some of the creative martinis I've ever seen. The service staff was very attentive and even the chef walked around the dining room to talk to guests. Very memorable experience and will be back soon!"
