We always have a great experience
We always have a great experience at Metro. The menu changes regularly, but everything on the menu sounds delicious. The prices are very reasonable.

The food is wonderful, but
The food is wonderful, but it is so dark that I could hardly see it. The place is also quite noisy, even though we made a point of getting there well before the club scene starts up. I appreciated that they clearly took note of our request to go easy on the salt. The service was also excellent. We will certainly go back as the food is really delicious.

Great service, delicious food.
Great service, delicious food. The vegetarian options were limited, but I found the asparagus strudel was a good option for me. My boyfriend loved his steak.

We've gone to Metro on a few occasions and have come to enjoy it. But, this past experience was amazing. They found out that we were celebrating our anniversary, and they went out of their way to make us feel special.

Excellent dining experience.
Excellent dining experience. The only problem was slow service in getting our after-dinner coffee...We finally had to cancel the coffee to make a prior engagement (about which alerted the staff prior to ordering).

Metro is worth it
We shared sushi, teriyaki cauliflower and edamame before going to another event, thinking the portions would be small. Each dish was generous and delicious. Our excellent waiter also exchanged my pinot grigio for a chardonnay at no extra cost after seeing that I didn't really like it. Metro is pricey but well worth it.

We went there for Mother's Day brunch. Very impressive from the service and food. Everyone seemed focused on being very nice and providing a great experience. Again, very impressed.

Still good food service rocks
Our servers were very attentive. Menu is very creative though dinners were not consistent. Some fish was overlooked. Sushi very good, salads fresh, burgers and fries good. However on a Saturday night at 8, Metro was empty! It used to be packed. Other neighborhood restaurants were busier. What's happened

Metro is a rare gem in Roanoke. You actually forget you are in Roanoke while dining there. It feels like you're in a big city in a quiet, romantic restaurant. The food (she crab soup, soft shell crabs, tuna roll sushi, and crabcakes) were amazing! The Stella was served in a Stella glass and was nice and cold. The New York Sour may now be my new favorite drink in town. The service was astounding. Great evening!

Great Sushi, Great Service!
We get out to the Metro a few times a year. We never regret it! Their menu is always changing with the seasons, which give a nice variety on their dishes. Sushi menu is great. Love their seasonal special cocktails also.

My family decided to have dinner at Metro which had been several years. We ordered wine, the new Tornado and Volcano sushi rolls which were awesome. My mom said that was the best part of her meal and I would agree that the sushi is definitely the best in Roanoke and some of the best I have had in general. I ordered the Scallops St. Jacques which was very rich and delicious. My father had the veal sweetbreads and would need the neighborhood to finish such a huge portion. Mom ordered the Blackened NC Mahi and brother the Steak which had an interesting side dish of queso. All presentations were beautiful and I couldn't not have been more pleased. My father has told everyone in his hometown to head down there. Lastly, the service was fantastic!

Unique restaurant with great menu
A very nice restaurant that compliments the existing offerings in the Roanoke Valley quite well. The menu offerings are diverse and distinctive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was awesome! Best filet mignon I have ever tasted not to mention the wonderful heirloom tomato salad. I was with a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meal. If you have a gluten allergy (like one of my friends who was in my party) do not worry, the chef informed us he could make any meal he wanted without gluten/wheat. If you want to go out with friends or have a romantic evening this is the place to go!

We went during their Halloween celebrations and the staff was dressed up in costumes which we all really loved! Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive she provided exceptional service. We had a fairly large party and everyone was happy with their meals. I had the Bouillabaisse which was fantastic! Will certainly get this again. We had the dessert sampler which made it really hard to decide which one was the best, all of them were great! We had a wonderful evening and I cannot wait to go again!

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!

Double Nickels Birthday
It was a wonderful evening for a birthday celebration. We were seated in a nice cozy corner table. The sushi was fabulous. We really enjoyed the she crab soup. We ended the evening with the creme brulee, which was perfect. Emily was great. She was very attentive.
