This was an excellent choice for the evening - no hassle reservations & easy parking. Our server, Paul, took great care of us; making some wonderful recommendations. A mixed dozen of raw oysters (they have 3 styles) and a Flight of Beer (plenty of craft beers to choose from) is the perfect start to any visit. Or, if you prefer... More

Arrived late on a Sunday, and searched for a unique dining experience. Many restaurants and bars in Roanoke are closed on Sundays, but we found (pleasantly) that Metro! was open. Sunday evening dining begins at 5PM, so we sat at the bar and enjoyed cocktails with a personal attention. The menu was a combination of Sushi, gastropub and fine dining... More

Very hip vibe - especially for Roanoke area. Food is very fresh and appealing but palate needs to be adventuresome. For sushi lovers it's a sure thing but if raw fish isn't your catch you may have to venture to some of the more chef-inspired vs. customer tried and true.

We loved this introduction to this fine restaurant. Staff was terrific. Decor was excellent and fun. Location was walkable from any place downtown. For brunch I had two great soups including a savory pumpkin applesauce seasonal one along with a terrific she crab soup. We were seated at a beautiful bar and learned about the history and success at this... More

The staff here is so wonderful. We came here after a funeral and the restaurant wasn't open yet, only the bar was but they totally accommodated us and served both food from the menu and drinks from the bar. The food was wonderful.

Had dinner there following the Cirque du Soleil performance in Roanoke last Sunday evening. A group of 4. We had no reservations but were seated immediately. The wait staff was cheery and friendly and very attentive. Drinks were delicious and each of us ordered a different dish. All were well presented and also delicious. We shared a desert. I am...

After a long day on the Blue Ridge Parkway we stopped off here for dinner. It seemed like a place with character on entry - but then we were led away to the upstairs area. Where we ate our dinner all alone, looking down at the friendly crowd below. I have no idea why we were stuck up there, visited... More

We have been to Metro several times. Our family loves the sushi and the unique way it is served. For a long time they offered early bird prices on the Sushi but not any more. It still is reasonably priced, however. If you do not like Sushi, Metro is a mixed bag. We both ordered the Quinoa scallops, the scallops... More

Eat at this place! Don't miss the sugar roads and fresh VA oysters. Stingrays are my fav. Everything is house made and local when possible. The ceviche and sushi are excellent as well. The spirits selection is too notch and the wine selection has a great variety of formats and varietals. The beer selection is not huge but has a... More

I was visiting Roanoke for work and saw Metro! listed on trip advisor. My experience does not match the reviews here. I was greeted at the door by a friendly maitre de who seated me quickly and efficiently. I was one of only 4 parties in the whole place, and there was only one waitstaff person on duty. She was...

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!
