    My husband makes the best scallops, hands down, but Roast's were a very close second to his. The dessert "The Bar," was a sugar addicts dream. It was phenoninal, it's a must!

    Ordered the beast tacos and they were very dry and bland with no good hot sauce available. Stuffed peppered were very spicy.

    Great drinks. I'm not comfy eating here as a vegetarian --not much choice if any-- but it's definitely a nice stop for a fancy cocktail.

    The food was very good. I had the beef tartar, pork chop and Brussels sprouts. Chop and tartar, phenomenal. Service, so so.

    Try the chocolate coffee bang bang. Chocolate coffee cookie with chocolate ice cream. Oh man it is pretty amazing.

    Dining here can be an experience. Ambience, location, staff are welcoming. The sides sometimes can trump the main course. I tried the Goat (a special) on this particular visit - very flavorful.

    It may very well be the best restaurant in Detroit. You should probably go with a steak of some variety, but the Bronzino is good.

    The rosemary fries were so good that I contemplated if I could bear eating regular fries ever again... In other words, definitely order them!

    Decent beer selection, Trappists, sours, ales. Food sucks. Overpriced hotel too. Another swing-and-a-miss, Detroit :(

    This place is all about the meat, but try the Brussels sprouts, they are great.

    For privacy, there are booths by the bar. For a good view, you can't beat the windows that look out onto Washington Boulevard!

    I agree with others - the steak is Applebee's quality. But the salads, apps, and sides were yummy. I wasn't impressed by the brussel sprouts, but I'm somewhat of a bs conneseiur. :)

    The best burger you will ever eat in your life! Come early (like 4 PM before they serve food) to guarantee a seat.

    With some of the best happy hour specials in town, plus a meaty main menu that would make any carnivore drool, this is anything but your average hotel dining room. [Eater 38 Member]

    Trust me when I say this, try the Veal Sweetbreads! I was nervous, but I took a chance and it was definitely the star of my meal!

    Every time I come here I get the Filet Mignon. I may try something different next time but like the old saying goes, if it's not broke don't try to fix it.

    Beer and pretzels dessert is great and definitely the lamb ragu as an entree :) Do NOT order the gingerbread / cologne mac and cheese - trust.

    Get the homemade pappardelle noodles with a slow-braised meat ragu. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

    Innovative cocktail list and the bartenders know how to make a proper cocktail. Great place to belly up to the bar for happy hour and end the evening with a carnivorous meal.

    Ask for the bar menu, great burgers and much less expensive than the rest of the menu.

    The Roast burger is like a single-serving religious experience. The Brussels sprouts? They will change you. Best Happy Hour in Detroit.

    It's a restaurant by Michael Symon, an Iron Chef. The food is spectacular, the ambience is stylish. Try the 'beer and pretzels' desert for a rich, salty, chocolate treat! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Happy hour is where it's at, but that's not news. Do it anyway, your wallet and tummy will thank you.

    The butterscotch creme brulee is delicious and the chocolate ganache torte is rich enough to share.

    Appetizer: Marrow served on the half bone, premium salt, parsley, garlic and pepper, great with earthy Cotes du Rhone type wines: Chateauneuf de Pape, Gigondas or Languedoc red.

    brussel sprouts, mashed pots and fries are standout sides. skip the filet with bernaise, go with olive oil and sea salt. porterhouse for two is perfect for three carnivores

    Recommend the Perfect Pear specialty drink. Tastes like the syrup from canned pears only with less syrup and more martini.

    The bacon appetizer was the best. Not currently on the menu (or the bacon creamed corn), hopefully it will return. Braised Beef Short Ribs, a-ma-zing. Service is spot on; had Brian both times and he r Read more
