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...

As the title says, meh...Not bad, just didn't live up to our expectations. We had a spicy tuna roll as an appetizer and it was well prepared and tasted good. I had the 3/4 lb Kobe style burger w/Truffle fries and my wife had the Crawfish pot pie. She really enjoyed hers and mine was not bad, but neither really... More

From brunch last week to appetizers and drinks with friends this week, Metro! never seems to fail. Everyone in our party was delighted with service and the quality of service.

On a cloudy and misty Tuesday Afternoon, my wife and I decided to have an early dinner or a late lunch at Metro in Roanoke, a restaurant that we have visited in the past. It was early, around 4:45 PM and we were greeted warmly by the hostess, we asked what time did the kitchen open, she said at 5:00... More

Perusing the menu makes you hopeful. Great ideas, however not able to execute. I had the Ramen under Asian comfort foods. Very disappointing, shallots were burnt, broth concentrated and lacked complexity of flavor. Crab cake sliders were also barely average. The only redeeming point were a few of the specialty sushi rolls we ordered. Service was also slow on the... More

The bar is great for drinks and meeting people in their late twenties and thirties. The food is just par, nothing special, your better off not getting the sushi. Had it once and I would rate it as fair. As for the wait staff, not as attentive as I would like, again fair.

Metro has a very eclectic menu, from sushi to steak. The drinks are delicious, and the wait people are really nice.

Really good and interesting dishes. From the appetizer through dessert, my wife and I had not one criticism. Moreover, the atmosphere was truly metro. Originally from New York City, Metro would be a good fit in Manhattan, not that that's important. I'd rather enjoy a good meal in Downtown Roanoke. We will definitely be back.

My old Standby for guests for lunch is this downtown jewel which has patio seating right on the Main Street (Campbell Avenue) of our famous MARKET AREA in Roanoke, Virginia . Specialty cocktails are a bit pricey. A Benne Box contents vary. Though I do not sushi, many offerings are available. My favorites are the unusual sandwiches, appetizers and salads.

Always full of life! Food is very good and service is excellent, but expect to pay for it. Their sushi is top-knoch and drinks from the bar a full pour.
