Metro! is downtown Roanoke’s premier restaurant and lounge. Though approaching the decade mark, Metro! continues to set standards for excellent cuisine and nightlife. An experience at Metro! brings to mind comparable restaurants in DC and New York City. Our extensive menu features American and Asian cuisine, with an a la carte steak and seafood selection. Nightly specials highlight unique chef-inspired creations. Our hand-crafted cocktails routinely garner awards from local publications. Our guest DJs are among the best in the world - they tour the globe performing for crowds of thousands, yet always love coming back to Roanoke to play on our state-of-the-art sound system.

New Year's Eve Special

Highlights were melt in your mouth falling off the bone tender Lamb Shank, Sushi Calif Rolls and Bread Pudding. Good crowd and attentive service. $55 pp included a glass of Bubbly. We have also enjoyed their weekend Brunch.

We enjoyed fabulous Kobe burgers which were memorable at comfortable table with attentive waitstaff. Nice uptown (for Roanoke) ambience. Pot de Creme dessert was also splendid. Nice selection of craft beers. We'll be back.

Metro participated in "Roanoke Restaurant Week" offering prix fixe three course dinners. The menu was varied and interesting so we went on Thursday night with friends. Our server was friendly and efficient. We had a great table overlooking the main dining room. From the menu we selected first courses of cornmeal fried oysters - delicious and plentiful; mussels in saffron... More

We come here often for lunch on Saturday afternoon and always love it, but today was special...I had the best lump crab cake ever in Roanoke...all crab, no filler. Hubs had fried oysters. Both were outstanding, and we loved our entree, but then we decided to have dessert...which we never do. Bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream, please do yourself... More

Metro never disappoints! My wife and I had a terrific meal last nite at our favorite restaurant. From the moment of arrival when we were warmly greeted, we felt special the whole evening. Our server, Aaron, was attentive and friendly.. I enjoyed the filet and my wife had bouillabaisse, which we both enjoyed because it was large enough for two... More

Excellent food - a little salty but very good. Highly recommend the soup of the day, the short ribs (again, salty but very good), and the bread/olive oil. For fun, order several appetizers. You'll get surprisingly full. Skip the lobster - it's not fresh.

Just loved it. Beautiful place, friendly staff, and excellent food. We tried the new grill items, and I'm sorry I do not recall the name of the process. All were so tasty. Had the Asian salad, a bottle of wine, and steak tartare. All were delicious but the ambiance was even better. Had a memorable night. Thank you!

Absolutely fantastic dinner at Metro. My dish of lamb saddle was "When Harry Met Sally" good! My daughter's Miso Salmon was equally good, and my husband loved his sausage, duck confit, and pork belly over sauerkraut as well (can't remember the name of it).This is one of my new 5 favorite places in Roanoke to eat now. We discovered Metro... More
