Interesting place

Can't give Metro! A five star review as we just had an appetizer and a few drinks, nevertheless have to say that the 'sashimi bowl' was a great experience at the bar. The bartender took great care of us by recommending that dish and she nailed it. Definitely Metro! Is in our short list of Roanoke... read more

The Metro continues to be the best restaurant in the Roanoke/Salem area. The variety of food, how it is prepared and the service are always the best. My family ate there for lunch with everything being perfect. You can order a variety of foods that are always over the top for how it is cooked and seasoned. Their menu changes... More

Metro is definitely a place to check out in Roanoke. The food is amazing; prepared in an open kitchen (YOU KNOW ITS CLEAN). I just had the dim sum sampler and it was awesome. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The wine list is quite nice with selections from all around the world (priced right too). The atmosphere is... More

Wow. What an experience. That is what eating out should be, an experience. Something one can remember with clarity. I can still taste the mouth watering lamb bacon, the potatoes and the over-the-top delicious French Toast. Wait staff was wonderful. Very pleasant and was very accommodating as we had our grandson with us. The atmosphere was super neat. Love the... More

I wanted to love this place because it came highly recommended, but I was disappointed in my time there. We walked in and there was only ONE other party in the entire restaurant. We asked to be seated and when we told the hostess that we did not have reservations, she glanced around the restaurant and acted as if we... More

We often come here for Saturday lunch and sit at the bar. Over time we have gotten to know most of the bartenders, and the amazing Taylor is one of our favorites. We recently stopped by with friends after dinner for a nightcap, and requested several different drinks, all utilizing Taylor's great mixology skills. Not only did he do everything... More

I don't love sushi so this restaurant was good but not great for me. They have a ribeye but it was $100, so we tried the steak frites and the hanger steak, both were very good but I was sad about the ribeye being out of reach. Excellent tomato salad, and good service.

I like this little restaurant because they made each meal special. Jimmy my waiter and server added the little touches that made the meal an experience. The food was delicious and the service was great.
