Bar poorly run. The bar supposedly opens at 4:00 but we arrived at 4:02 and the bar was full and people already had drinks. Half of the seats were empty but had coats and purses on them because they were being "saved". That should not be allowed. They have high tops and booths in the bar that they said we... More

Roast was a cozy upscale restaurant to enjoy for a special occasion. The signature short rib appetizer was delicious. The filet was superb. Salads and sides are enough to share. Save room for dessert!

Second trip to Roast and very impressed again. "The benchmark" manhattan is breathtaking if you like manhattans. It's the sweeter side of perfect. The beef cheek pierogis are balanced perfectly with the horseradish. And the fettuccine with bay scallops were delicious! Get a reservation ahead of time or sit at the bar and get fantastic service either way!!

We were very DISAPPOINTED with our meals.I actually gave it 3 stars because the service was good. Considering the prices, overall it's a 2 star as a fine dining venue.Our table was directly in front of the kitchen and could see... More

I have now been to all of Michael Symon's restaurants and to say I am never disappointed would be an understatement. The food was delicious from the beef cheek perogi to the perfectly smoked pork chop I was definitely impressed. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The only thing that I did not like was the fact the restaurant... More

Went on a date night. We had clams and beef cheek perogies to start, with a martini. The perogies were awesome. The martini was great. The clams were very salty. I got the ribeye with a side of mushrooms. The ribeye was way too salty. The temp was cooked to medium rare as ordered, but the exterior was lacking a... More

Clams are a terrific appetizer. The dim lights and a good bottle of wine make it a very relaxing atmosphere. We will be back!
