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.

Last week my wife and I were enjoying our holiday in US and ended up in Roanoke. The marketplace is a nive environment with a lot of restaurants. We decided to have dinner at Metro. What a disappointment! The food was not good and overprized. The cook did a lauzy job. From the presentation and the taste of the food... More

It was a surprise to find a restaurant of this level in Roanoke. The food, the ambiance and the service were over the top. Jennifer took care of us and did a great job!

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food. I started off with the ceaser napoleon...yummy! Just the right amount of dressing...beautiful presentation. I usually add lots of fresh ground pepper to a Caesar salad. No need with this dish...the gruyere tuilles were such a fabulous touch. The mussels appetizer was spectacular. The smell was mesmerizing and I had to take a picture it looked... More

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
