Description: 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!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My husband and I eat here often for Saturday lunch when we are in town. We love to sit at the bar and have small plates or split an entree with a bottle of wine. We are always happy with the meal, and the value is outstanding. Would highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a leisurely Saturday afternoon meal...and BTW, they will change the TV to whatever football game you happen to want to watch!

“A Wonderful Meal”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We were visiting Roanoke on vacation and the Metro was a recommendation by the hotel staff. We are glad that we chose this restaurant. The menu was eclectic. Everything we had was delicious. The home-made pickled ginger with the sushi was pleasant surprise. The service was very good. The restuarant was crowded but we were able to easily have a conversation. We had a very enjoyable experience. We would recommend this restaurant and would return if we are back in the area.
