Honestly this place wasn’t great. My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary. The steaks were so dry; and no flavor. The appetizers were decent. The best thing were the rosemary fries.

The food was not seasoned well and it didn’t have any flavor at all. I had two different dishes and they both were pretty bad.

The steak was overpriced and extremely chewy. I had massive chunks of fat with almost every bite and silver skin made it very difficult to cut the meat also. For 78 dollars i wouldn’t say the flavor of the cut wasnt exceptional. I’ve had better steaks for half the price. the chicken was superb along with the fries.

Ambiance was serene and calm. Waitstaff was very knowledgeable about menu items. The streak was slightly undercooked, but not enough to diminish overall quality and taste of the meal. I will be going again.

I was really excited for this restaurant while we were visiting our son at UMichigan and celebrating my husband’s birthday. Ambiance and service were very good but food was disappointing. The menu had nice choices but everything was too salty. The pork chop tasted like ham and my son and husband shared the rib eye that was a tough cut of meat

We had a lovely evening, celebrating our anniversary. Eric, our waiter, was excellent -- offering good suggestions, and checking in with us without being intrusive. The steaks were delicious, with peppery seasoning and done perfectly. We also loved the mashed potatoes and the roasted brussels sprouts. Don't forget to try the French onion soup--hearty, with a hint of rosemary. Roast is a memorable dining experience.

Delicious food. Creative cocktails. Would like at least one more veggie option for a side other than just Brussels sprouts (though they are very good). A little too dark for my liking. Good service.

The food was fantastic. I had the lamb shank and it was tender. I tasted the ribeye and it too was tender and delicious. The sides were great and the service was good. I would go back again.

Inviting ambiance, food was superb..our favorites were the bone marrow and brussel sprout dish. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, however he did leave us unattended for some time, considering there weren’t many patrons. Would recommend this restaurant.

Roast restaurant is on the first floor of the Westin Book Cadillac. We thoroughly enjoyed two dinners during our tours of the Detroit Institute of Art and the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, both outstanding.

Roast is an absolutely incredible restaurant. From the moment you walk in they make you feel special. We had a drink at the bar that was delicious prior to sitting down. The wait staff was phenomenal in assisting a wine selection and providing input on drinks. My water glass was never empty and they were very attentive. I had the best filet I’ve had from any steakhouse recently. You won’t regret coming here!

Wonderful dinner with friends. There was a guy at the bar talking really loudly. Ugh. I wish Roast had more sides and bring back the zip sauce. Server disappeared at times. Had almost finished dinner when I had to ask another person to send server over. He never came back to ask if we needed anything. That’s odd.

While in Detroit for a wedding we were lucky to find Roast on the Open Table app. In my dining experience Keith was one of the best waiters I have ever had. He was knowledgeable about all the menu items and had a wealth of knowledge about food in general. Our meals were served family style as we requested and everything we ordered, including dessert were delicious! The rib eye was cooked to perfection.
Drinks are made with fresh ingredients and our vodka gimlets were the perfect blend. The manager Joseph came by a few times and he was a delight. Not sure how express how good our meal was except to say we came back the next night, asked for Keith and had a repeat perfect experience. Thank you so much for two nights of deliciousness and wonderful service.

Much better experience than Lola's in Cleveland. Still expect more from an place owned by an Iron Chef. I understand its Covid, but still the overall experience was just ok.

My wife and I love the Roast. The service was superb. The food was also very good. On the downside the menu is somewhat limited and the prices are at the high end, especially for the imported reds from Italy. On a positive, the portion size was acceptable. We left feeling very good about our overall experience once again.

It was very nice. Except I’ve had better days where the steaks were perfection. This time they were under cooked even tho We ordered a medium well steak. Other than that our waiter was amazing and everything was great. Menu is much smaller than usual due to Covid but they said they will be building it up. :)
