Took my girlfriend here before a concert and was so glad we gave it a try. Shared the Porterhouse and it was excellent. It did have a sauce on it, which I would have preferred to have been served on the side so I could enjoy the quality of the steak. Otherwise, it was tender, perfectly cooked, and huge. We... More

We made reservations for Roast as we LOVED his restaurant Lola in Cleveland, Ohio. We were not disappointed. Two of us had his smoked pork chop and it was amazing! The creaminess of the polenta with the medium cooked pork chop and the caramelized onions was full of flavor and all paired so well with each other - highly recommend.... More

I read the reviews and saw there was mixed responses. This is exactly what we experienced. My girls had the pork shanks which we good. My wife had the ribeye and I had the filet. Both where average. We fined last night at J. Alexander's and had better steaks. Save your money and dine at a chain restaurant.

Wow, wow, wow. We arrived at Roast shortly after the 4:30 pm start of happy hour and the bar was already quite crowded. Wine and beer selections were very good — $4 pours! My happy hour pork tacos were excellent ($4!) and my companion enjoyed a happy hour liver selection. We were so enthralled by Roast's outstanding happy hour that... More

Having read the raves from several reviewers, we were very much looking forward to our Saturday evening meal at Roast. We expected the prices to be high, as they are at most steakhouses in this category. Although the service was good, the food did not match the reviews nor did it match the prices. The burrata appetizer was the highlight... More

While my sister was in town recently, she asked to come here. Construction around the area makes it very difficult to find using a GPS. There is a parking garage next door to the restaurant but they didn't honor the validating parking discount we were told about. We had reservations for 6pm on a Sunday. They seated us right away...

This is a very well located restaurant, which includes valet parking service. Service is ok, but our waitress was rushy - she insisted several times to get our order as fast as we could. The steaks are so-so, since they are prepared with different sauces and side dishes. I would prefer the classic american steak.

This place is delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection, my filet was exactly as I had asked and the surprise of the evening was the brussel sprouts. They were roasted with garlic and olive oil and just simply delicious. I know the menu can change but we had a large assortment of food at our table and there were no... More

My husband and I have been here several times since it opened. We have never had the same meal and we have never had a bad one! The decor is great - upscale but with a casual feel. The service is excellent and the food is always a mix of creative and comfort. Even if you don't like brussels sprouts... More
