Not only did we enjoy the best dinner we have had in Roanoke, it was also the best dinner in recent memory anywhere. We do a fair amount of traveling and we eat out frequently. Our interests are centered in meals that reflect innovative flavor twists, surprises, and a full range of spiced flavors. Metro delivered on all of that... More

Metro! is an upscale restaurant, a place for wealthy people to eat regularly, and for normal folk to eat special meals. I'm guessing the dinner menu is exotic. we went for lunch and chose the simplest (i.e., least expensive) item: Caesar chicken wrap. It was delicious. But the best part was the French fries (best I've ever eaten). Seems nuts... More

Being in Roanoke on an extended driving trip, we walked through the downtown to find a restaurant. We chose this venue on the basis of the very ambitious offerings on their menu. As to the results, we would note the following -Service was slow and extremely disorganized. -The she-crab soup was outstanding. -The white-bean soup was both unusual and unsatisfactory.... More

The food was well cooked. We had she crab soup and scallops. The she crab was very tasty. The scallops were tasty as well but came with five small to medium sized scallops. So if you are hungry this may be not enough! Certainly tasty. Had to ask for bread and it came with my last mouthful at the end... More

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food. I started off with the ceaser napoleon...yummy! Just the right amount of dressing...beautiful presentation. I usually add lots of fresh ground pepper to a Caesar salad. No need with this dish...the gruyere tuilles were such a fabulous touch. The mussels appetizer was spectacular. The smell was mesmerizing and I had to take a picture it looked... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on a sleepy, summer Sunday in Roanoke. We were searching for a place that served dinner on Sunday and noticed that there were few choices. However, we were lucky to find the Metro as we strolled the streets earlier in the day. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a friendly smile and... More
