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!

My husband and I try to get to Metro! every time we go to Roanoke. It is a great place with a great atmosphere for the younger crowd. They always have nice seasonal items on there menu with their old favorites as well. Sushi was beautiful and fresh. Service was fantastic. My husband always orders the Filet which he says is the best he has ever had. You will not regret trying Metro!

My friends and I wanted a nice place to eat that is also affordable, and has a nice ambiance. We hadn't been to Metro! for a number of months because they kept reducing the sushi rolls on the half price menu. (Their happy hour is daily (even weekends) from 5:30-6:30). We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the revised half price menu with many choices on there that we hadn't seen before. I had the sumo roll and it was quite amazing. My friends enjoyed their rolls as well. The service was great too. We will be back to try more of their offerings.

We are of the foodie tribe and after reading all of the available menus, both published and in the windows and not being dressed for Alexanders we were lured into Metro by the sidewalk sign advertising soft shell crag now in season. Once inside were pleased to find this was the kind of restaurant we were searching for and had about given up on finding. The crabs and the fish taco and deserts were well prepared and served. We got several flyers to pass on to our friends who travel this route north.

This was a good experience; good food and wine, perhaps slightly expensive for what you received. Very good service. As the restaurant is in an old building that has been renovated the decor was rather austere and the noise from the open kitchen rather distracting. Despite this we would recommend a visit.
