I have been here many times over the years and the food is always wonderful and the service is very good! Tonight was my boyfriend's birthday and we were both pleased.
I do wonder why we did not get "points" for the reservation.

Best in DFW
There may be a better restaurant in all of DFW than Classic but I've not experienced. This is as good as it gets folks. You cannot be disappointed . This time the desserts were extra spectacular. THE BEST PERIOD

Great venue for celebrating our 42nd! Special surprise was a gift card from our kids who had recommended it to use! Will definitely go again!

Our group always loves eating here for our monthly lunch. Food and service at always excellent.

Good not Great...Not a
Not a bad place. Steaks were great. Side dishes such as red cabbage and polenta can ruin a great steak. Wedge salad was OK at best.

Worthwhile dining experience
We dined at the Classic twice for lunch and three times for dinner in May. The food was superb each time. The service is just right....professional, courteous, informative, but not intrusive and they don't 'hurry' you to turn over the table. Atmosphere is calm and relaxing, especially in the 'music' room. The tenderloin medallions and the smoked salmon pasta are truly a culinary treat, and you can never go wrong with the special of the day. The wine list is ample, though a bit overpriced (but 1/2 price wine on Mondays). Don't go here if you are looking for a bargain, definitely go here if you are looking for a pleasant and pleasing dining experience

Wonderful treasure in Roanoke
The food was excellent. It's a lovely place to celebrate an anniversary or any special occasion. The server we had was most impressive. She was soft spoken, congenial, and very attentive.

Consistently A Great Place to Dine
My wife and I have dined at Classic Cafe for years. The food, the wine list, and the service are always very good. We consider it a perennial favorite. The Tilapia was outstanding as was the pork tenderloin.

For those who know about this
For those who know about this gem in Roanoke, it is a favorite. Owners are on-site and the staff is highly professional. The experience is predictable. You know it's going to be a great meal.

We ALWAYS have a wonderful meal and quiet time to talk together without children or noise, or having to be 'seen' at the right place. Just LOVE this quaint old Cafe.

Best lamb ever
Not much new to say about the Classic, which is generally excellent. I should note that I've eaten a lot of lamb, my girlfriend (who travels for work, entertains clients, and has eaten very well all over the world) has, too, and the rack of lamb she ordered at the Classic was simply the best either of us has ever had. That's pretty amazing.

Very elegant spot
I've been a customer of Classic Cafe for years and they never disappoint me.

Excellent food and service
We celebrated our 44th anniversary here and were very pleased
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent as always!
Food is top notch! I have never been disappointed.

Enjoying our Anniversary
I mentioned this was our 36th anniversary in the reservation "notes", and for our dessert creme brulee the chef prepared a lovely decorated plate saying "Happy Anniversary." A nice touch to end our very enjoyable meal. (The crab cakes were outstanding!)

Worth the drive
We've been going to this restaurant in Roanoke, TX since the late 1990s. They have since opened several restaurants on the same road but when we first started going it was in the middle of nowhere. The metroplex has expanded out toward this area down Hwy 114 but even if it hadn't it would still be well worth the drive. The food and service are outstanding. The chef always has a twist on a dish (i.e. unique sauce or preparation) that makes menu items here ones you will NOT find duplicated at any other restaurant in DFW. Ingrediants are fresh and I've never had a dish that wasn't top shelf. Don't expect TGI Friday's pricing but it's worth every penny.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was perfect
The service, the atmosphere, the low noise level, the menu, and most of all, the food, was wonderful.

This restaurant makes a big effort to provide excellent customer service and top of line food.

Classic Cafe is top notch from entering the door to walking out. Staff friendl, food exceptional and prices reasonable. Highly recommend!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect as Usual
Made another visit to Classic Café on 7/24. Meal was excellent, service outstanding. We met an old friend for dinner there and he had been there several times before. He made the comment that as always, the food here is as good as you can find anywhere in DFW.
We agree. Never had a bad meal or anything other than an excellent dining experience at the Classic...
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a gem
the food is exquisite and the staff are so friendly. live music on Friday night was great! wonderful romantic night out kind of place.

Ladies day out
Have eaten here before and always enjoyed everything. Brought three lady friends with me and everyone was thoroughly delighted not only with the food, but the service too. On the way back home we decided that this may have to become a monthly outing event. Perhaps we can bring a couple of other friends with us. Thanks for the good time.

One of our favorites!
The Classic Cafe continues to be a favorite for any special occasion. This time our table was in the bar with wonderful live music (acoustic guitar). Artwork by fabulous artist Carolyn Riegelman covers the walls and elevates the decor above and beyond other restaurants. We also love the personal attention we always receive, treating us as if we were weekly regulars. And of course the food is the piece de resistance! How often are you able to enjoy delicious recipes created from fresh seasonal produce selected from the garden just next door? We can't wait for our next visit!

The place to go
Elegant dining without the stuffiness. Unique food flavors. Personalized service.

Our favorite place for lunch
Our favorite place for lunch and dinner and always exceptionally good in quality and presentation of food plus service. Never have had an off meal there. Love the fact that the owner always comes and greets you and makes sure you are enjoying your meal.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Dining Experience
Everything from start to finish was special. Fresh ingredients and food was bursting with flavor. Paige, our server, was warm, attentive and kind.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to the Classic Cafe about 4 times over the last 10 years and love it every time we go. The food is fantastic and the service top notch. The only draw back is that it is a bit noisy when they are busy. Price is a bit high but well worth it in value ofthe food.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our daughter was visiting
Our daughter was visiting from Alaska was quite happy with the special which included fresh from the garden Fried Okra. She texted all her southern friends in Alaska to let them know how wonderful it was.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for lunch and had salmon and pork tenderloin with rosemary au jus special. Salmon was perfectly cooked. Pork was a bit dry. Also had the okra and shrimp cake with spicy remoulade sauce - delicious! Had the jalapeno apple cobbler. It definitely was different and had quite a kick to it. It was a little sweet for me but I was glad I tried it. Server was friendly and attentive. Love this quaint restaurant! Had a coupon too so that was a nice bonus!

Perfect as always!
We have been going to The Classic Cafe for many years and is our favorite for special occasions. The food is fabulous and the service and care is perfect.

The food, service and atmosphere is excellent and consistent. We'll be back!

Never fails to be wonderful
The Classic Cafe never fails to be a wonderful evening for us. Food wine and service were great as usual. A nice little treat was the fabulous classical guitarist in the bar. We chose to eat in there this time so we could enjoy the music. Had a fabulous server. As always, love the knowledgable wine sommelier. Plan to be back soon
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another wonderful dinner
Curtis and Francis truly know their food and the wines that go superbly with each dish. Chef Charles never disappoints and includes new and innovative specials every week along with the "classics" that have made the Classic Cafe an outstanding choice for 20 years.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, the Classic Café in Roanoke had me floored. Have been coming to here and enjoying Chef Charles Youts' cuisine since 1994 (I was only 8!) 19 years later, it has only gotten better! Their vegetables and herbs are fresher than fresh, as the majority are grown in their own garden out back of the restaurant. The creamy tomato bisque is my personal favourite starter. Periodically they will feature fried okra, with the okra coming from the aforementioned garden. From steaks to seafood, all entree's are on point. I'm a fan of the applewood smoked salmon tossed with radiatore pasta and capers in a white wine dill sauce. For dessert, a creme brûlée that is nearly impossible for me to not order when I'm dining there.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife for her birthday. The food was outstanding. Service was better. They made the evening very special. Thanks Classic!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dining close to home
Although we drove to Roanoke from Denton, the experience was truly enjoyable all around. The food was divine, the wait staff attentive and we can't wait to go back.

Classic Cafe never disappoints
Love this place. Food is always great as well as the service.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a coupon from this restaurant that had to be several years old; however, it had no expiration date. It was graciously honored a few visits back. Right away that created a customer pleasing ambience. To top it off, the food was delicious and farm fresh. The service was attentive, but never fawning. Since that time, I have been back at least three more times. It has lived up to expectations each visit. I recommend this highly as a dining establishment for birthdays or any special occasion.

Worth the trip!
Classic Cafe in Roanoke is a wonderful experience. Family owned with a chef that competes with the best in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Innovative food with the option of always getting a great steak. Nice bar area with live entertainment on the weekends. Fun special events like Monday night wine & food tastings. They do very fine catering also.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ordered the 4 course special. Everything was jaw dropping delicious! Truly off the scale! Service was immpeccable. Go here today. You will not be disappointed.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Needed a quiet place for a business meal nearby the Marriott at Champions Circle. Always looking for unique, out of the way places that impress. This certainly fit the bill. Great steaks, great service. I'll be back.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Quality food and attentive staff
Quiet, cozy restaurant. Staff helpful and polite- did have to ask for my coffee that I ordered with dessert but that was only service flaw. House-smoked salmon appetizer excellent, great flavor, texture. Classic Greens Salad better than Seasonal Greens salad. Crab-stuffed tilapia great- loaded with crab on top! Definitely recommend the dessert sampler. We had the Jalapeno Apple Cobbler, Warm Peach Pecan Bread Pudding and the Walnut Chocolate Toret. All three were fantastic, but I liked the cobbler the best. This restaurant is great for couples or small parties. Decent wine List but very pricey compared to similar restaurants.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still the best fine dining experience in the metroplex.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had lunch with some girl friends and enjoyed everything about the restaurant ! Food was good, from the bread to the soup & main course & service was outstanding! I will be back with my husband for dinner. We like supporting non-chain restaurants, so this will be one we will visit often.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was referred to this little gem by a coworker of the wife. Great find amongst the many choices in Roanoke. food was good, service was good, and the ambience was perfect. Had relatives in town, and wanted a little local restaurant to treat them to, instead of a chain that could be found anywhere. this fit the bill perfectly. Will return.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was impeccable and the beef tenderloin was the best I've ever had! So happy we live close to this superb restaurant!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful 40th Anniversary dinner here....service was wonderful, food superb. Everyone made our special night even more special.

Great service, great food and mellow
guitar music playing live in the back
Our third visit and each time we have left
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We took good friends out for their anniversary. We had GREAT food! We were seated right away, even though we arrived about 20 minutes ahead of our reservation. We were never rushed. We could talk in normal tones and everyone at the table could be heard. The lighting was just right, soft but not dark. The price was reasonable. It did not cost us much more than if we had gone to one of the big chain restaurants. For our main entrees we each had something different and everyone loved their food. The portion sizes were perfect. Then at dessert, what a surprise! Our friend's dessert was brought out on a plate that had been decorated with chocolate and said Happy Anniversary. It was a beautiful piece of food art. Highly reccommended!
