My family and I ate there on an early Sunday evening. We were really looking forward to the meal as we've been to many steak houses before. The server was good and knew the menu items and specials, the bone marrow app was excellent as were the steaks and sides. My biggest gripe with this place was the coldness of... More

The food is wonderful and has an extensive wine list. The service is always outstanding. We love the marrow and dessert wines.

As a fan of the food network it's hard not try an Iron Chefs restaurant, especially when there's one a couple blocks away from your hotel. I had the opportunity to take out a new client for a nice dinner to kick off a project and Roast was the perfect venue. It was very nice, but not overly formal. The... More

I was expecting an extraordinary experience as I watch Michael Symon on the food network. It was everything I thought it would be. The service flowed like a well oiled machine. I am gluten free and the servers were very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were also given a tablet with alcoholic beverages. The mixed drink and wine list was extensive.

My wife and I had been wanting to try this restaurant for a while but always seemed to end up somewhere else. That'll be last time that happens! This restaurant from the moment you're seated to the very end of your dining experience is simply amazing. Let's start off by saying that this is a very pricey restaurant but it... More

We like Michael Symon and have been to several of his restaurants (Lola and Lolita in Cleveland, B-Spot). I had an overnight stay in the Cadillac Book Hotel in downtown Detroit and was delighted to see this Michael Symon restaurant downstairs. The setting is dark and opulent. Most of the patrons seemed to be businessmen. No, I am not being... More

Meat eaters will love Roast, no doubt about it. But as an 'almost vegetarian" I found plenty on the menu to enjoy. (Hint: order from the Sides menu.) Their roasted cauliflower was to die for. Warm, spicy and filling, it's something I've craved since having it and I've not been able to replicate that flavor at home. Roast has a... More
