Let me start by saying the food was cooked to perfection ! It was downhill from there. Out waitperson was in some sort of hurry to get us out of there even though we had a 730p reservation....try these facts 1. Drinks were pushed immediately when we sat down and also asked if we wanted to order all our food... More

Roast, the premier restaurant at Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, is a well-mannered semi-formal restaurant (even with the vibrant high energy bar area of the restaurant) offering truly impeccable service usually found only in 2-star restaurants. I ordered Roast's version of cassoulet, which had pulled pork on a bed of flageolet beans: Twas a tad piquant for me, yet it was... More

I really wonder if these get read by the owners and if they get anyone's attention that matters. I cant explain how disappointed we were with the food. The server was great I could see he felt bad and was trying to make up for it. He was awesome the food not so much. I watch this Iron Chef and... More

​ I came here at 4pm on a Friday for the half-off Happy Hour menu and sat at the first-come, first-serve bar where I was informed that you cannot order food until 4:30pm. So, I waited. When I was finally able to order, I got the rosemary fries, mac & cheese, and chicken livers & creamy polenta. The fries were... More

We had a genuinely outstanding experience at Roast. We were a party of 7, and had a private room, which was very nice. Service was friendly and helpful, and the drinks were strong. But the real star was the food, which was remarkably good throughout the meal. Special praise is due for the beet salad, the filet, and the "Bar"... More

Visited Detroit for a Lions game and was staying at the Westin. Great service, excellent food and the drinks were all high quality. Will become a must stop place every time I am in the area.

Had dinner at the bar at 5 pm on a Sunday and the place was PACKED! The wine selections are insane! I ordered the chicken which was the best chicken I have ever had in my life. I know that sounds weird because it's chicken but I promise you will not disappointed . Make sure you have time before you... More

We were at Roast for my son's birthday. While it was not my first choice, it was his and it usually is. Service is always great! Dinner was good also. I have learned that I am not a fan of goat so I ordered the pasta instead. Great choice for me. The charcuterie here is always a family favorite.

This was my fourth visit to Roast, the first in a couple years. It was good, but not excellent like it was in the past. Our server was friendly and helpful with making suggestions. We started with cauliflower soup and beef tartare, both excellent. Our mains were the halibut (delicious!) and filet. We also ordered sides of the Brussels sprouts... More
