Roast is outstanding, from appetizer to dessert. The steak is on the rarer side, a medium is almost like a medium rare, but it's delicious. I went with a big group so we sampled the entire dessert menu and everything, including the peach strudel was...More

During happy hour you are essentially eating Michael Symon concept food for half off the bar menu. They also offer $5/glass wines during happy hour that are really good. I'd stop in again the next time I'm in town.

We had an excellent meal with both wonderful food and good service. I wouldn't say it was the best steakhouse I've ever experienced but it didn't disappoint.

I came to Roast with expectations of being blown away, well I'd call it very good, though not excellent. I think part of it is the place is so darned crowded-it usually makes the lists of top Detroit restaurants. Maybe I set the bar too...More

My suggestion is to call them directly. They do have at least one private room but I'm not sure how many it holds.
Is there parking? Free?

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.
Is there a fitness room at this resort?

Yes, there is a fitness room and small pool. Good luck getting out the bed because it's was the best sleep I have ever had at a hotel.
