We had an amazing meal at "Roast!" Our entrees were delicious, cooked to perfection and plated beautifully! The service was extraordinary, we were not rushed, in fact, encouraged to relax and take our time. Very nice atmosphere, as well.

The parking is valet as a part of the Westin Book Cadillac hotel. $10 and if they park you in front of the building, a nice tip is customary.
