Delicious food in a very nice atmosphere. Michelle our server was terrific--friendly and attentive, very professional. The roasted pork shank was succulent and fell off the bone. The chicken was equally as delicious. Being able to watch the kitchen staff was fun and entertaining. The french fries were very addictive. We loved the peanut butter bread pudding too. The wine...

Our Waitress was great and knowledgeable. Perfect personality for the job, maybe to good because she made it sound soooo goood, and it was good but not that good. Could be that my expectation was high since Michael is a culinary genius. My steak was cooked perfectly the way it was ordered and was good, but it just lacked that... More

Very good restaurant, pricey, but you expect that with Michael Symon's name on it. We had a nice table in the corner with very good service, I think it helped that my daughter is a regular and they knew her by sight! The menu was quite unique and delicious, but you could still get very good fish and steak. We... More

We sat at the bar with Zan, an awesome bartender, for dinner before the DTW Beck concert. We met Joseph Allerton, the sommelier and GM of Roast. We proceeded to feast on a dozen east coast oysters. We shared the shaved root salad, then came the duck breast with apricots and watercress. The wine of choice was an Anthill Farms... More

There with a group of six, relaxed service, very good food (even for those who are not big meat-eaters).

This year, my wife and I decided to visit Michael Symon’s restaurants. Earlier, we were in Cleveland and went to both Lola & Lolita’s restaurants and had an amazing dining experience at both locations. Upon being in Detroit, Roast was at the top of our dining choice. Arriving a little early, we sat at the bar (bar was about half... More

There were five of us celebrating my son's new job. We started with the Beef Cheek Pierogie and the Jerk Spiced Pork Belly. Both were very flavorful and appealed to diverse tastes among members of our party. Two people had the Beast of the Day which was goat--and they loved it! Three of us had the filet--cooked perfectly. For the... More

This was a very good meal BUT when I decide to go out for this type of experience and spend this kind of money I want something truly elevated and unique. The steak tartar was fantastic as an appetizer and the steaks themselves were quite good. Mind blowingly good? No, just really good. The sides all felt like something I... More

Very diverse menu. Started with pork belly appetizer - small portion but full of flavor. My salmon was flavorful and melted in my mouth. My husband said his New York Strip steak was the BEST steak he had ever had (and he is a real meat eater)! We loved the sides - ROAST really makes vegetables come alive. The spinach... More

just plain better. The service was slow and the restaurant was not full so we aren't sure what happened. Entree wasn't seasoned properly but that can be written off to personal taste. But we did expect a bit more from the experience than it delivered.
