Best crab cake ever! Please note one crab cake is the size of two. More than I could eat. My wife got the fried oysters again they were great. She thought she was getting a small portion turned out there were eight. Our waiter Drew was fantastic.

The food at Metro is always unique and wonderful. The menu changes enough to make it interesting but they still keep some of the good things like the tempura cauliflower and fried oysters.

Dropped by without a reservation and were rewarded with a table. Metro was quite full by the time we left so a reservation is recommended. The ambiance is very intimate with a cosmopolitan feel. We tried the zucchini blossoms (tempura) which were a real treat. We also tried the new scallop and mushroom dish which was served in a small... More

I've dined at Metro many times and consider it one of the best options, especially downtown. You can tell their management actually tries to keep the menu fresh and interesting. Their sushi is excellent and they always have interesting drinks. Their entire menu is actually very interesting and is generally very good. Great ambiance and decor. An outdoor table is... More

Wasn't really sure what to order and asked server for a choice. She recommends the tuna tacos! I'm in Roanoke, VA and I'm going to order tuna tacos! Man am I glad I did. They were off the chain! Loaded with fish, slaw, some really amazing cheese, avocado and fresh lime for squeezing!! Amazing! Who would have known. Someone else... More

We were new to Roanoke and just looking for a restaurant. We saw they had a special, and waited for them to open, downtown Roanoke is a nice little mix of shops and a good variety of restaurants. Metro is what I'd call a bistro, very modern, open, and comfortable. And then Jessica appeared, She was a hoot, and we... More

This continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Roanoke. Varied menu and wine selections, outstanding staff and interesting décor. We had the Miso Salmon and Beef curry. Both were excellent. The appetizers and desert were also first rate. It's a little pricey but worth it.

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely Easter brunch. Great food, good options for vegetarians, beautiful place and wonderful service. We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation and they took us right away! Would definitely go again

OMG their sushi and especially the happy hour special are amazing!!! go there!! We also had Valentines Day dinner with another couple which was amazing. AND in the evening of Sat (maybe Friday) nights they open the upstairs as a night club with dancing. A very versatile restaurant with great service AND great food.

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!
