My wife and I went to this restaurant with another couple on there recommendation. The restaurant itself is very nice with a good atmosphere and the wait staff were great and courteous. Now for the bad! Started with the beer list which was ok but with all of the great beers Michigan has to offer it could be better. We... More

Just had the filet mignon with crab bearnaise. Super tender, melt in your mouth meat with a slightly spicy and buttery crunchy exterior. Brussel sprouts were excellent though it looks like more in the bowl than there is. I guess they're flash fried so there's lots of individual leaves. Ala carte veggies generally. Very expensive but worth it. I've been... More

Roast is in the Westin Cadillac building. The restaurant is large, on the noisy side but with great food. Meat is king. We had chicken, steak, pork chops and lamb at our table and all were excellent. The wine and beer list are large (provided on an iPad) with great choices but on the high price end. Service was great.

The service was good. The food was way overpriced and marginal. 3 of us ordered the short rib and have never tasted anything like it. It was fatty and dense and chewy. Will NEVER return to spend $100 per person for their food. They also have a parking issue so it took us 20 minutes to get our car from... More

Great experience at Roast. Professional knowledgeable waiter, and food was spectacular. We stayed at the Westin, which is a great hotel in Detroit for its central location, spa and generally excellent service and condition. Roast is in the ground floor of the hotel. We had the Porterhouse steak for two with pan fried potatoes and sprouts, and drinks. The quality... More

We ate here to celebrate our engagement during a 1-night stay at the attached Book Westin Cadillac Hotel (wonderful hotel). The service at Roast was very good, personable, and attentive. Lots of good beverage choices, and I enjoyed a very good glass of Malbec with my meal. The bread basket was nothing special -- a few slices of room temp... More

Took family here for anniversary and the kids enjoyed it. Food was great except my entree. It was roast beast of the day. Supposedly it was pulled pork but the taste of the pork was gamey. I didn't complain but the waitress knew I didn't like it. They offered another dish but by that time it was time to go... More

I hate giving bad reviews and I believe most reviews I have given are positive and realistic. Despite the reputation of this steak house I have to say that this was most definitely the worse steak dinner I ever had. Have you ever waited well over an hour on your dinner? And when they delivered the steaks they were hardly... More
