Excellent family experience after the Lions game. We had a reservation so seating was quick. Wonderful cocktail and wine list. Appetizers were delicious and just the right portion. You have to try the meat at this place - steaks were well seasoned and cooked over a grill...the "Roast Beast" is worth the adventure!! Will definitely be back soon.

Went here two nights in a row while at a conference at the MGM Grand. It's just a short walk away. The food was really good. Typical Symon stuff with lots of pork to be found. I tried a number of dishes: crispy pork belly and pig ears, burrata special app, lam sweet breads, roast beast (one night lamb, one... More

Professional, polite, attentive service; great ambience; fantastic food. My wife and I went there for my birthday and had a great experience. Appetizers were marlin crudo and roasted pork belly and I additionally had their roasted beef marrow bones as part of my main. We also shared a perfectly cooked filet mignon with sides of rosemary fries and spinach feta... More

Our server was Kim D. and she was on point all night (Oct 1st). A real rockstar! The food was excellent (roast pig) and the wine selection is good. Try the caramel cheesecake for a truly delightful dessert!

Had another great meal at Roast. The Rib eye special steak was devine along with the harvest salad and mushrooms. The Charcuterie platter was over the top and make sure you check out the sommeliers wine selections. Great gems on their list. Highly recommend.

After the Motor City's eventual comeback, folks may look back at Roast as a standard and vanguard. The chef adds richness and local flair to steakhouse cuisine. I enjoyed the Fun Guy burger and a side of spinach-and-feta casserole. Dark House and Founders on tap, a marvelous happy hour -- I love how they still have those in Detroit --... More

I love this place. Perfect business trip to Detroit involves checking in to the Book Cadillac, coming down here to sit at the bar over a cocktail and dinner, and meeting whoever is coming in and out. The food is always excellent, the people interesting and the vibe very comfortable when I am alone on business, like this visit. The... More

We had a lovely table near the window which was very nice. Our server, Michele, was excellent - very knowledgeable about preparations of the menu offerings. She was attentive but allowed us to enjoy our evening. The whiskey sour with egg whites was great as well as the martini. Our food was good but the brussel sprouts with walnuts and... More

Having been to Roast a handful of times, my most recent visit certainly did not disappoint. Whether out on the town for a date night, or just stopping in on a weekday for a great meal, Roast is and always has been a great spot for fine service, excellent eats, and added pride for the City of Detroit.
