We stopped in here for a snack and a drink before dinner. We were amazed by the bartender who was seasoning our glasses with applewood smoke. Really unique experience which imparts a nice flavor to the drink. The sushi was likewise very good. Much of it used cooked fish as opposed to raw (as I'm used to), but flavor and... More

My friend and I went on the Roanoke food tour. All the stops were good, but Metro went sky high somehow knowing it was my birthday and bringing out a happy birthday chocolate dessert that would make you want to smack you're mama! What a special treat.

We stop there for breakfast. I had soft scramble eggs, sausage links, sausage gravy, and biscuits. The biscuits were light & fluffy and the rest of the food was Delicious and so was the service. You can get food to go. I would HIGHLY Recommend this place

My girlfriend and I visited Metro! for the sushi happy hour (5:30p to 6:30p). We had not been in about one year so we were excited to check it out. We had great service from Brad, who was friendly and knowledgeable. We got the Angry Tuna roll and three varieties of avocado roll. They were all filled with lots of... More

Metro is a long time family favorite as well as a place we take out of town visitors when we want to show them the best eclectic fine dining experience in Roanoke, whether for lunch or dinner. The menu is ever changing depending on available local and nearby ingredients, and offers an Asian twist as well as fine American dining.... More

We love the atmosphere, the beer and wine choices, and the sushi. We like to grab a quick roll at the bar, or have an appetizer and meal at a table. The bartenders and servers know their product. The food has never disappointed us and the décor is delightful. When we are wondering where to eat, we always turn to... More

Passing through Roanoke, we found this hidden gem of a restaurant. Our perfect cocktails were made to order by our friendly and knowledgeable bartender. The she crab soup was superb...perfect on a cold evening. We decided to try their cheesy bread which was very delicious however, very very filling! The bread and a salad could be a dinner in itself.... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice and the Service was very good, we were there for a Baby Shower and had a big enough table and a pretty awesome waitress. We ordered and shared different things. I had Rappahanock Rolls (Metro Specialty Sushi Rolls), and fried oysters which the oysters could have been better but it was good... More

Great funky ambience without trying too hard. They serve Chartreuse. I'll stop there. Seriously, the food was creatively prepared, a lot of attention to detail, and fresh sourced.

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!
