The dining experience was fantastic. Got two porterhouse steaks with mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, and beef cheek perogies. Steak was cooked to perfection. Service and atmosphere was perfect for our date. Would recommend. Is very expensive though, but worth it. Spent just under 200 after food, and champagne.

Oysters were a rip off, steak presentation was lacking, I mean, just a piece of meat in center of large plate with nothing else, hello.

Food was excellent. Staff was excellent.
Only issue, a table of 4 came in and were sat near us.
They either work there or are regulars, but everyone
knew them. They spoke quite loudly in what is a
quiet restaurant, and their vocabulary was more for a
night at the bar where you're throwing back shots.
Not a conversation or language I would choose to listen
to during my meal.
I didn't mention it to our server or the manager as both
had been at their table and it was clear they all were friends.

I'm sorry to report that we were mildly disappointed with the Roast. The friendliest person during our visit was the valet. When we first arrived we were seated at the farthest end of the restaurant . We asked to be moved and were accommodated but not in a very friendly manner. Our waiter was proficient but acted as if he had better things to do than wait our table. I'm pulling for Detroit in a big way and that's why we drove 60 miles to get there. The food was good not great. Our bill was 300+ for 4 people plus tip. Expensive but not overly so if... the staff is great you get a personable waiter and the food is great. Step your game up Roast if you want repeat customers.

I've been to Roast about a half dozen times. Each time, it was excellent. It was equally excellent this time, however the price had increased. I felt that the cost of our meals were much too high for what we ate and drank, as well as being much higher than in the past. I have no objection to paying for a good meal and good service, but this time, it was too much.
Sorry.

The service was great although we did have to wait a while for our food we appreciated our waiter letting us know of the wait time ahead of time, he was very attentive to our needs and friendly. All the meals we ordered were extremely over salted, and very over priced...very disappointing... great ambiance but we will only go back for drinks when we come back to stay at the Westin.

Food was outstanding! Mussel appetizer probably the best we have had. Scallops were exceptional. Steak was delicious and a very generous size. Mushroom soup and coconut sorbet were great. Great service!

Excellent for smoky, grill-crusted meats. When seated near the kitchen, the fluorescent light pours in right into your eyes, more than offsets the other nice lighting in the dining room and kills the atmosphere. But there has to be an easy fix for that!

My lobster spaghetti was excellent. My friend's strip steak was done perfectly, though we both thought it had been oversalted. The ceasar salad was also excellent, but the marrow appetizer, which I'd heard so much about, was so salty that I didn't enjoy it. The wine selection is excellent, and the service was excellent.

A bit disappointing. No plated presentation and at a high end restaurant such as Roast a little more attention to detail goes a long way. Being served a piece of filet mug on with neither sauce or a green on the plate appeared thoughtless and very uncreative. Lacked ambience and energy. With all of the more unique and newer restaurants popping up in the D and with amazing classics such as Joe Muer’s which is consistently outstanding in both service and quality Roast needs to step up their game.

We treated family to dinner. My Branzino was burned and over salted. My husband received a different cut of meat that was over cooked, other than what he ordered. Also, my moms lobster was tough and she had to spit it out in a napkin when no one was looking. Everything was too salty. It was $400 meal for four people and should have been excellent.

Recently dined here with my mother- she is a huge fan of Michael symon. We started with the oysters which they were very tiny and disappointing. We each ordered filets and they were cooked perfectly and the flavor was sooo tender- We also split the Brussels sprouts and walnuts as a side dish and they were fantastic as well. I would def recommend if you are the mood for a quality piece of meat! Will go back again!

Another great dinner! Lobster appetizer was amazing, Brussel sprouts are always wonderful! By far my favorite place for a Filet, far exceeds Ruth’s Chris & Morton’s. Only 4/5 for ambience since we were sandwiched inbetween two other parties, way too close.
