Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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"

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!!"

  • "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!"

  • "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 knew when booking this restaurant for our Anniversary it would be an awesome evening, and it was. From champagne waiting for us at the table, extra candles, and the list goes on. One word, IMPECCABLE. Our server Taylor went over the top, he left us wanting for nothing. Thanks again for another great experience."

  • "Went here for Restaurant Week and wish I had spent my thirty bucks somewhere else. Not very pleased with most of our food. Some things were smothered in way too much sauce that it overpowered everything. Pastry in salmon dish and in dessert was so overcooked that they couldn't be cut with even a knife. Dessert was the better part of the meal still. Just go for drinks at the bar because it is way too pricey here for an unsatisfactory meal."

Menu has a lot of breadth, prices are good for the quality and size of the dishes (wine list too), service very good, my fish was a bit over-cooked but overall meal was good"

We had salmon, lamb shank and shrimp aside form my sirloin, all were hits! The appetizers and creme brulee were great too!"

  • "It was not a great dinner. Our steak was overcooked and the duck dish was very bland. My son enjoyed his sushi and the miso soup was very good. Our waiter was gone for a very long time before coming back to ask about our food. By the time he came back the other people that we were dining with had almost finished and there was no point in taking the food back, we just did not have time to wait. The choices for wine by the glass are not very good. They do have a decent wine list, but I find the prices for the quality of wine to be very high."

    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Four of us started with the sushi rolls which were fresh and very tasty...the Angry Tuna was delish! The She crab soup was very tasty but more like a stew. Faroe Salmon consisted of 2 large portions of salmon but was confused on whether to eat the "crust" as it wasn't easy to cut into. However the fish and pate inside were very tasty. Potatoes and chard were just ok. The Scallops and Shrimp on the bed of pesto pasta was excellent and it definitely came home in a box! The Kobe burger was amazing and the portion of fries was definitely a table share!"

  • "They had a great beer selection, but the wine list is incredibly overpriced. Are they really unable to find a single bottle under 28? I ordered the special--espresso braised short ribs w/ seasonal roasted vegetables and fingerling potatoes. The potatoes were not done (hard). The seasonal vegetables were not. A turnip, bell peppers, and carrots. Bell peppers are seasonal in fall? The short ribs were terrible. More fat and gristle than meat, it was served as a steak cut, in the shape of a ribeye. I've never seen a short rib like this. My wife had the big eye tuna tempura. Incredibly salty, with tastable added sugar, the vegetables were just killed in the broth and had no flavor left at all. We would not eat here again."

  • "Our food was great. The she-crab soup and sushi were outstanding. But our waiter was awful. He was slow and uninterested. I asked for recommendations and he merely read the descriptions of three items on the menu. He acted like he couldn't care less whether we enjoyed the meal or not. Made no effect. I would go back for the soup alone. But I wouldn't want the same waite.r"
