Great Food, debatable ambianceHad dinner for a special occasion. My date and I both got steaks: she ordered the rib-eye; I had the filet. Both were excellent. The mashed potatoes (garlic for her, Gouda for me) were, without exaggeration, some of the best either of us had ever had. Satisfaction with the ambiance will vary based on each diner's preferences. There was a lively bar crowd as well as a number of other diners, and the noise level was certainly moderately high. For us, this was just fine, but we're in our late 20s and prefer upbeat environments rather than isolated quiet. Overall, an excellent evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCouldn't hear ourselves speak!A large group at the bar were pretty noisy and as our dining table was at the front of the restaurant it was a little over the top.
Apparently this is common on a Friday night.
We were dining on a Saturday.
If you wish a quite dinner for two try somewhere else.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!I was a little worried about spending a friend's birthday here given some of the reviews. For some reason, even as a local I had not ventured to Table 50 yet. I was expecting loud, horrible service and expensive. We actually had a wonderful night! Great service - thank you, Whitney! The food was fantastic! When my friend asked what something was on my plate, Whitney brought her a little sample for her to try for herself. She anticipated our needs and kept our water glasses full. The noise was not excessive and the pricing was not outrageous. We paid right around $100, which included two side salads, two entrees, two glasses of wine, two beers AND a tip. It was a fantastic evening!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodAbsolutely some of the best steak I have eaten. Spectacular.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, fast & friendly serviceI ordered the Grouper, my husband ordered the filet both were exceptional. The filet was a little pricey for Roanoke.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMehThe food was awesome, but when we arrived at the restaurant I had made a reservation and told the waitress and she sat us at a table by the window. A few minutes later she walked over and asked for my name again. Realizing she sat us in another reservation seat she made us get up and move to the rear of the restaurant and sit at a much smaller table. It wasn't a huge deal besides people watching us have to get up and move like we were not good enough for the table. It also happened to be our engagement dinner and it upset me to have to do that.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food Anchor in DowntownGood menu with lots of options for almost all tastes. Gluten-free friendly. Very courteous and helpful staff. Easily accommodated last-second addition of one to party of six. An easy walk from the Hotel Roanoke and well within the vibrant scene around Center in the Square, Table 50 is highly recommended by locals as THE place to eat in Roanoke. We were not disappointed. Our out of state guests raved about the meal and the good time centered on our dining experience. Beverage service was equal in quality to the food, which was outstanding.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDINNER FRIDAY NIGHTTHIS WAS A 60TH BIRTHDAY CELBRATION AND WE HAD AN AWESOME TIME.

It's on the expensive side but well worth it, especially for special occasions! It was a little loud (though it was St. Patrick's Day weekend), but the food was incredible and the service was great!
