Still Love This Place!

Great food (though maybe getting a bit stale on the selection side?), even better service, and they make an excellent cocktail.

While the meal during this visit was very good, some of the same items ordered didn't have the same robust flavors as I've come to enjoy from Roast. I will certainly return but will hope for the excellent rating next time.

We made reservations weeks in advance and were excited about dining at Roast, what a letdown. We were attending a concert in Detroit and were seated promptly at 5:15, which should have allowed us plenty of time to eat and arrive at the concert. Our drinks were served and the waitress took our order within 10 minutes. We both ordered... More

Have been going to The Roast for several years and the food and service are always very good. No had any issues. Looking forward to returning in the future. One of the best restaurants in Detroit hands down!

This place is great! The food, of course, was excellent! (you have to order the brussel sprouts!!!) What i dig most about this place is it is one of Detroit's top restaurants, yet still has a relaxed atmosphere to it. Saw lots of people wearing jeans! Therefore, I didn't feel out of place in a fancy steakhouse or anything of... More

After we were seated we were brought bread and butter and drinks. for starters I ordered the Roasted Marrow with sea salt, oregano, capers & chilies. It was the best tasting marrow I have ever had...
