Had reservations for Roast on December 12. Decor and ambience were nice. Had the beef cheek pierogies and octopus appetizers which were both average. For entrees had the filet with crab Bearnaise and the Ribeye. The ribeye was very overcooked and unfortunately our waitress did not come back to check on us for quite some time. Did not care for...

My wife ad I enjoyed a delicious meal at Roast recently. We had reservations and would recommend them if you plan on dining at Roast, especially on the weekend. Roast is mainly a dinner experience, although the bar is open at 4. We had 730 reservations and the restaurant didn't seem overly crowded. By 830 it was full. We were... More

I eat here about five times and will certainly keep coming back. My experience, stick with what they do really well and you'll leave in awe. Veer off course and you might not be satisfied. 5 star dishes: - The brussel sprouts are one of my favorite and memorable flavors I've ever eaten. I've actually gone to the bar and... More

Roast is a gem in the heart of Motor City! The filet is impeccable along with service. If you are looking for a first class experience in Detroit, then head to Roast. The decor is stylish and warm, which sets off a meal to remember.

We dined here on a Saturday night before going to the theater for Wicked. The staff is great. They were welcoming and friendly the moment we stepped through the door. Our server was very congenial and knowledgeable about the menu and wine. He provided a great wine pairing to go with my entree. The atmosphere is very nice and the... More

Came out for date night, had a reservation, and was seated right away even though we were 30 min early. The service here is spotty. Your actual waiter/ess barely interacts with you, but everyone else was readily available. The beer selection while good was also minimal (~8 drafts) for what has been considered a good beer bar. I was drawn... More

The food was excellent, but after asking for the manager several times, nobody ever came. Had to wait 45 minutes for the bill.

I can't say that I know who Michael Symon is, but the restaurant delivered in terms of quality and atmosphere. An excellent choice for a business meal.

As you should expect from one of Michael Symon's top restaurants, the food was unbelievable. The sushi appetizer was the best I have ever tasted... my brain instantly melted. This continued right through to the end, via the bitter green salad (caesar salad, only better and slightly spicy), duck confit, pork casarecce, sides of beets and spinach, and lastly, a... More

So, I went to Roast for the first time this weekend. I was not disappointed. The food was delicious! The ambiance was very calm, dark, and polished. There are multiple sections of the restaurant. Including a row of booth towards the back for couples who want a bit of privacy, and a bar in the middle that includes an extensive... More
