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.

Lived in the area for seventeen years before we moved away and after two years my wife and I came back for a visit. We were walking around the square and it was lunch time so in we went. They have been there for eighteen years I think our waiter said and I never saw it. You have to pay... More

This was an excellent choice for the evening - no hassle reservations & easy parking. Our server, Paul, took great care of us; making some wonderful recommendations. A mixed dozen of raw oysters (they have 3 styles) and a Flight of Beer (plenty of craft beers to choose from) is the perfect start to any visit. Or, if you prefer... More

Arrived late on a Sunday, and searched for a unique dining experience. Many restaurants and bars in Roanoke are closed on Sundays, but we found (pleasantly) that Metro! was open. Sunday evening dining begins at 5PM, so we sat at the bar and enjoyed cocktails with a personal attention. The menu was a combination of Sushi, gastropub and fine dining... More

Very hip vibe - especially for Roanoke area. Food is very fresh and appealing but palate needs to be adventuresome. For sushi lovers it's a sure thing but if raw fish isn't your catch you may have to venture to some of the more chef-inspired vs. customer tried and true.

We loved this introduction to this fine restaurant. Staff was terrific. Decor was excellent and fun. Location was walkable from any place downtown. For brunch I had two great soups including a savory pumpkin applesauce seasonal one along with a terrific she crab soup. We were seated at a beautiful bar and learned about the history and success at this... More

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!
