Product and presentation were excellent, but not inexpensive. Just what one would expect in a high end restaurant in Detroit, but much less than NY, Washington, etc.. So I would highly recommend the Roast for a fine night out. Down town Detroit is alive and safe. Have fun!

The steak was exceptional but the brussel sprouts and the mushrooms we're show stoppers!! The service is fantastic. Can't think of one negative thing to say.

We have been to Roast several times and each time the food and service have been very good. The wine list is very approachable. This restaurant is primarily focused on meat but is not a steak house. Excellent appetizers as well. This restaurant is not inexpensive but if you are someone who likes good meat you will get an excellent... More

We had exceptional service, expert wine and food advice, and an all around terrific dining experience. Several of us had the dry rubbed rib eye, one of us had lamb shank, all of which were cooked to perfection. Try the brussel sprouts and the beet salad. They will not disappoint. Worth the expense!!

Loved this restaurant. Cool decor, great servers, and excellent food. I had the sturgeon, which I'm still thinking about. Smoky,flavourful, well-presented, it was a delight. Save room for 'the bar' dessert. Wow. My husband had the lamb, which was the beast of the day and he reports that it was outstanding. Great wine selection tops off a great evening. If... More

My mom and I came here for a late dinner during our one night stay at the Westin, The food was fantastic The pork belly with blue cheese grit was delicious. The steak was excellent. The highlight was a the brussel sprouts - seriously, order them. Overall, it was a fantastic dining experience.

Roast is a great restaurant for special occasions. The time I was there the food was inventive and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. A tip I would share is that I would go to this restaurant again if it participates in Detroit Restaurant Week.

Although the food was 'os (and just ok) service was very poor. Only reason I'll return is when the weather is too bad to venture off site for the Westin but my expectations will be low
