Had not been in 10 years and was so pleased with our experience. Family of 6 including 5 yr old. Dining room recently redecorated and brighter than I remember. Welcomed immediately by staff and service thereafter impeccable. Very attentive but not intrusive. Made child feel special also. Food delicious and drinks also. Would highly recommend.

The atmosphere was incredible.
The atmosphere was incredible. You'll feel pampered and polished. The food left something to be desired. The grilled chicken, rice pilaf, rolls, and desserts were good. All of the other selections were mediocre; almost akin to institution-style food. The atmosphere and service made up for the disappointing menu. Although, at $16 per person for the buffet, a pricing revision seems to be in order.

Still special but...
The Regency Room, like the Hotel Roanoke, succeeds mostly on its laurels from an illustrious past and less on what it delivers present-day. In its current iteration, the newly remodeled Regency Room exudes an air of sophistication that is only skin deep. For those of us who have enjoyed dining here for years, service levels and food quality have diminished. Even tried and true specials of the house, like spoon bread, bread pudding and peanut soup, reflect recipes tweaked for cost savings. The Regency Room is stilll a special place, and our Sunday brunch was enjoyable, just not as impressive as we remember.

This is a great place to have brunch. The space is newly renovated and features breakfast items, including made to order omelettes) in the main dining room, with more lunch oriented items in the adjacent room. The peanut soup is fantastic, but really all of the food is of great quality.
The atmosphere has a semi-formal feel to it, but you see a mix of attire throughout. A piano adds to the more upscale feel.
The only negative I can find is that the service is often wanting. The buffet attendants are fantastic, helpful, and seemingly happy to engage with you. The wait staff... not so much. Over the course of 6 or more visits, we've always found like we were imposing to ask for things like more coffee. Shameful.

Hotel Roanoke Regency Room
The live music was wonderful (well played and good selections) but a bit too loud for my taste....I should have requested a table farther away from the musicians but I didn't realize that they were going to be playing throughout the evening. Everything else at the Regency Room was absolutely wonderful.

Great new makeover at Hotel Roanoke
We celebrated Mother's Day last Sat Nite at Hotel Roanoke since its one of my Mother In Laws favorites spots. Great service by Lowell the Matradee!!!! Entertainment (music) was also very nice.

A wonderful choice for a special
A wonderful choice for a special occasion. We were celebrating our daughter's college graduation with out of town family members, and everyone loved the restaurant! The chef even came out to personally greet us at our table. The food was wonderful, the service was incredible (Thanks, Kelly!) and I would absolutely recommend that you dine here.

Best brunch anywhere
Extensive selection of brunch food. Best omelette station around. Prime rib carving station. Delicious quiches. All around fantastic and with a piano player for ambiance. Would recommended to anyone.

Super Service and Food
It's rare to eat at a buffet and that you enjoy everything you eat. There's also great service and a quiet dining room that is appointed beautifully.
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner was exquisite. Great food. Great service. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Leisurely but not slow. Overall a great place to dine with someone special. Avoid Sunday brunch as food quality and service suffer. Dinner from the menu with full service is superb.

We recently celebrated the 80th and 85th birthdays of my parents with a dinner for 6 at the Regency Room. The food and service were impeccable, and the restaurant was very helpful in the special arrangements that we made for flowers and a birthday cake. It was a delightful, memorable evening.

We were looking for a special
We were looking for a special place to celebrate our 16 year anniversary-and our first night out without the children in many, many months. The Regency Room was the perfect place. We were greeted graciously by the maitre'd, escorted to a table near the three piece band that was playing, the wait staff was exceptional. She was able to give us recommendations, help select wine, extremely knowledgeable as to portion size and pairings, etc. overall helful and friendly. The food was delicious, the atmosphere relaxing, overall the perfect night out.

Highlight of Our Weekend
We had supper and two breakfasts there this weekend. The staff was the key. They made us feel at home and spent lots of time with us. They made the food, which was very good,seem secondary. I was allowed to bring my own wine and I left some after the meal for the staff to try.

My only complaint was that the crab soup was on the salty side but everything else we had was excellent.

Loved our experience there!

Wedding Day Brunch
Best friend got married Sunday morning and we treated the newlywed couple to brunch. We were surprised at how few people were participating in the brunch Sunday - not sure why.

I purchased a Brunch for Two certificate at my church's annual auction. I took my kids there, 15 and 19, and it was an enjoyable experience for all!

Old world Charm
Service and ambience very much the grand hotel. Some food very modern, ie tomato goat cheese app, very delicious. Food is yummy but not necessarily as described.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were both amazing. From a delectable crab bisque to the surf and turf entree, everything was fit for a king and queen. There was one loud, obnoxious dinner group near us who were being incredibly rude and loud in this elegant fine dinning restaurant. But the staff was so gracious and accommodating to move us, upon our request, to a more secluded area so we could enjoy our anniversary in peace. The service and food combined made for a perfect evening that will keep us coming back for years to come.

There was a nice variety of food, and everyone enjoyed what they chose. This place was great for relaxing after a special event and enjoying the evening with family. It has a classy atmosphere and friendly service (Nina was great!). If you are thinking at all about ordering the She Crab Soup, you must do so -- it is superb.

Delicious music and food
The menu at Regency is small but adequate. They try to locally source their ingredients which I believe makes for a tastier meal. The menu has small and large plate offerings which is so nice, as well as several nice salads.
Their wine list is extensive. A jazz trio played the evening we were there and it added such a nice ambiance. Our server was very nice but things were slow----as was the case with all services at the Hotel Roanoke that weekend.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first time here, but it won't be my last. Everyone on staff made it their job to ensure my fiancé and u had an amazing dinning experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting or living near Roanoke.

Excellent for Breakfast
Large family and friends group gathered for breakfast. There were 10 of us and the table was waiting for us with prior reservations. Hotel Roanoke has really done an outstanding job in the last year of improving quality and service issues. Have become a semi-regular there and will continue to do so. Great atmosphere and wonderful staff.

Service was very personal and attentive -- great for a business lunch.

We hadn't dined at the Regency Room for a number of years and used our anniversary for the return trip. The remodeled Regency Room didn't disappoint. Everyone was friendly, the service was outstanding and the meal portions were more than filling.

A Night to Remember
To celebrate our Anniversary, my husband picked the Regency Room in the Hotel Roanoke. From the moment we were greeted by Lowell, we knew it would be special! My husband loved the peanut soup and as I did the Caesar salad. The filet mignon was perfection and my husband had the trout which he really enjoyed. It was all surrounded by excellent service by Meryl. I would highly recommend this restaurant, perfect place for a special occasion.

Great food and service!
Normally we try not eat at hotel restaurants but the weather was so cold we decided to give it a try.
The dinning room was beautiful and we were graciously seated even though we were in our travel clothes.
The food was wonderful and perfect service! We would not hesitate to eat there next time we stay at the Hotel Roanoke.

An 11 on a scale of 10
We went to the Regency Room for an anniversary dinner and it delivered beyond our expectations. Our Friday evening experience was one of great food, wine and service, all tastefully backdropped by a jazz trio playing the right music at the right volume. Both the restaurant and the Hotel Roanoke are unique gems that combine classic (story book!) ambiance and excellent value when fairly compared to the alternatives. We will not wait for an anniversary to return.
