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

We tried their lunch on a Saturday early afternoon. They were not that busy (8 customers) and the receptionist was very welcoming. The menu looked very interesting and seemed to have a good choice/selection. We tried the she crab soup ($10) where every mouthful was filled with crab and had really good taste. 10/10 on that no doubt! Tried the... More

I loved this restaurant. The food and service were great. Being from the Midwest, the menu definitely has a Virginia flair. I enjoyed this meal, and wish I could go back soon.

Went in for a casual Tuesday night dinner - ordered a salad, and a lamb burger... After an hour they bring the burger I'd seen under the heat lamp for 20 minutes - ice cold!!! Server never once checked or visited me after my initial order. They didn't even offer a fair apology upon my leaving after sending back my... More

I went here for dinner while in town for work. They have a diverse and interesting menu, and the wait staff was very accomodating. We had the fried green tomatoes, two different sushi rolls, and the truffle fries. It was a random compilation of items, but it was all tasty!

Metro was very crowded and it seemed like it would be an excellent choice. Started off well with a glass of wine and exceptional bread and then went down hill. We ordered an appetizer of dim sum to share. The dim sum were ok and the sauces made it better than ok. Included in a lower basket was chicken wings... More

We went with friends for dinner and had not been to Metro for a very long time. We were very pleased with our entire experience. When we arrived the hostess offered us a "wonderful table" and we asked about outside dining. She was very accommodating and after checking out both, we selected the "wonderful table" (which it REALLY was and... More

This restaurant could be in DC, Boston, NY or Montreal but what a surprise, it is in downtown Roanoke. The beer and wines are not your ordinary, they are for the culinarian. Fusion inspired entrées and appetizers with comfort food for those who aren't overly adventurous. We loved this place! My kids (14 & 12) were reluctant but left as... More

My wife and I joined another couple for dinner at metro on Monday night. The waitstaff was very attentive and the host/maitre de/manager (dexter) were very helpful with food and wine selections. I had the 8oz filet with blue cheese gnocchi, it was cooked perfectly and the gnocchi was a delightful change from the standard steak and potatoes you find... More

This was the most disappointing meal I have ever had in a restaurant. The restaurant was highly praised, but the service turned out to be horrible. We arrived at six and placed our order shortly afterw ards. We just ordered the entree. However, many other people who arrived later, some as late as an hour later, ordered appetizers before their...
