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. Come taste the difference - the experience that is Metro!

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.

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.

We recently had dinner at Metro! on a Saturday night. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The restaurant is located near the Market in Roanoke and there is a parking garage across the street. The dining room is modern and has quite a bit of banquette seating. I found these to be hard and uncomfortable. Additionally, the room was... More

We have eaten here several times. The sushi is excellent. The service is excellent, knowledgeable, unobtrusive but attentive. The food is fresh and original. The specials are original and innovative. I wish I lived closer. I cannot say enough good things. Just go you will not be sorry.

I'm a Bostonian and whenever I visit my sister in Roanoke, I make sure we eat at Metro. The food is top notch, nice wine list and the staff is professional and friendly. Really the only upscale place in the area, in my opinion. They might want to tone down the overhead disco lights, however.
