Everything was delicious except the fried bologna sandwich. Bologna was not fried (it was actually cold in the middle). it is more of a bologna panini sandwich. Everything else was delicious. Pork Shank Confit was amazing. Beef pirogies- yum. Beet salad with goat cheese- yum. Mac n cheese- yum.

The food, atmosphere and service were all top notch. Downtown Detroit is on the come back. Don't let Roast's location keep you from this first class restaurant as parking is very accessible. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We have never been disappointed when we dine here. Meats are always perfectly seasoned and prepared, as well as the seafood! Service is attentive but not intrusive.

Omg....the dinner was amazing. But the dessert, which I usually view as an after thought. Was the star! Pretzel ice cream, with a Graham cracker crust and chocolate Ganche and crunchy sea salt...the best!

Hands down one of the best meals I've had. A great friend and I stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night. It was crowded however because of the size and space of the dining room spread diners out so your not on top of each other. I had a steak (which was excellent) the spinach and Mac and cheese....

An excellent restaurant which is known for steaks and chops. However we prefer seafood. There were two seafood items on the menu. We had them both and they were outstanding. My wife had sturgeon which phenomenal. The tuna ceviche was one of the best ever.

It's funny I never heard about this restaurant so was not sure what to expect. The interior was modern and you could feel that this was a restaurant where you could dress your self a little extra nice. We started of with some drinks, I had my Bloody Mary and it was very tasty. We ordered some different starters to... More

I had such high expectations, after all it is Michael Symon. The oysters were good. The roast pork was disappointing. The brussels sprouts & mac & cheese were just run of the mill. The bar was wonderful.

Good appetizers and atmosphere. Somewhat overpriced and Detroit has better places to spend your money.

We have been coming here for 9 years and each time is memorable! The food last night was Heaven-sent! So delicious! We had the bone marrow for an appetizer and we split the porterhouse steak between the 3 of us, along with sides of Brussels sprouts, polenta, mashed potatoes, and rosemary fries. For dessert, I had the creme brûlée and... More
