Good upscale food in an intimate setting

My wife and I like this restaraunt the food is Asian fusion and gourmet eclectic. I've had excellent soups, salads and sushi rolls here. The prices can be on the high side but the food is usually worth it. It's convenient but parking can be difficult. I'd recommend reservations on a weekend. I... read more

A wonderful restaurant in a neat downtown building. Atmosphere is upscale and well-done blend of contemporary in historical frame. We had special of swordfish and steak frites. Both VERY nice. Terrific laid back dinner with fine food, wine, & service!

Great service, great drinks and great food. Sushi was very fresh. My only complaint about downtown is paying to park to have dinner.

The Metro is a tribute to the diversity that is Roanoke's restaurant scene. It is unlike any other restaurant in town . . . more like something found in New York City; very trendy, very different . . . but in a very good and tasteful way. The décor is very modern and beautiful. The atmosphere is wide open, but... More

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

Always take my mom to the Metro when she visits from NYC. Love the food and drink! Great place to take out of town guests or a business associate. Recommend it for after work place to meet as well.
