This was my second time here, we do a annual girl's weekend in February and Roast is one of our destinations. Everything about this experience is perfect. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. The food... oh God the food is amazing. All four of us order something different and we all share. A perfect place to actually sit and...

My husband and I had been meaning to try this place for years. It had been recommended to us over and over and we just never seemed to want to drive to Detroit to try it out but OMG am I glad we finally did! We had the Beef Cheek Pierogies as an appetizer - delicious! I had the Smoked... More

Everything about this meal exceeded all our expectations. The restaurant is luxury at it's finest. We were seated in a private, secluded booth - perfect for a romantic date night. Our server was very informative and friendly. The lamb appetizer, filet and brussel sprouts are highly recommended - YUMMY! Want to go back again as soon as possible!

We have been to Roast many times in the past 6 months and have loved it. We went there to celebrate Valentine's Day, and I have mixed reviews. We started off with the grilled octopus. The octopus was grilled perfectly however I was not a fan of the pickled red onion. It ruined the taste of the dish. I ordered... More

Every review that you've read about how wonderful this place is is absolutely correct! We couldn't get a table on a Friday night...but opted to eat at the bar. We were not disappointed! The bartenders/servers were exceptional and it was the best "spaghetti" I've ever had! It had lobster and a light white sauce. My husband has the NY strip... More

We went during Happy Hour and had the most DELISH burger I've had in years accompanied by without question the VERY BEST brussel sprouts pan fried with almonds, red wine... More

I have had many memorable meals in fine restaurants all over the world, but I would rank my recent meal at Roast among the very best. Ten family members gathered in Detroit to celebrate my father-in-law's 80th birthday - and event worth going all out for - and Roast was the appropriate place. We reserved a private room and they...

In town for the 2015 Auto Show, we were anticipating a wonderful experience - Last year we tried to get reservations but were unable to. The restaurant at 7:15 was less than half full and remained so until about the time we were ready to leave. 7:15 was the latest seating we could get until very late. Even half full,... More
