    Atmosphere is lovely. Staff is super attentive. Food was super salty. We had the special fish. ( sea bass) The sauce was delicious, but salty. The table next to us order steaks . They waited an hour to be served and they were complaining again of their food being too salty. Maybe the chef was just heavy handed last night. Extensive drink menu. Love their martinis.

    I was disappointed in our meal. Really over cook. But staff was on it when I made made them aware of the kitchen errors. The cavatappi and cheese had too much oil or butter. For a steakhouse, I can't grasp how you can overcook a medium rare steak. To med well.

    Loved the atmosphere and probably one of the best service experiences we've had. But the food was very disappointing. My son's steak was so salty he literally couldn't eat it. Mine was similar but a much thicker cut so I just cut some of mine away. I ordered a medium but the center of my steak was extremely raw. My daughter did have the Chilean Sea Bass and it was outstanding causing us all to wish we'd ordered that! I would recommend but give friend's my caution.

    The meal was delicious. My wife and I shared a mushroom and tasty crabcake appetizer, then I had a 7 oz steak and she had the fish special, and we shared a bananas Foster dessert. The steak was excellent, although very salty. Overall a very nice meal, but with a hefty price tag of almost $200 including tax and tip, without any drinks

    This was our late Valentines Day celebration and it was excellent. As usual with Frankie Rowland’s, all items were perfectly prepared. We started with the pan seared sea scallops in Parmesan crème sauce. These are absolutely amazing. They are so tender they very nearly melt in your mouth, and the sauce is out of this world. The filets were tender and perfectly seasoned with a delicious salt & pepper crust. They were perfectly cooked and the Weller CYPB was the perfect accompaniment. The split chicken breast with rosemary sauce was also amazingly tender and flavorful. The sides, masked potatoes and grilled asparagus were, as always, delicious. The Crème Brûlée was top-notch and a great final note. The service was excellent, a true dining experience. Make no mistake, this is not an inexpensive meal, but with outstanding service and food of this caliber, you truly do get what you pay for.

    My wife and I came in for Valentine's Day dinner and it may have been one of the best meals I've had in my life. Our steaks, cooked to different temps, were both melt in your mouth perfect. We opted for the Brussel sprouts and potatoes au gratin as our sides and they were also incredible. But the best decision we made was getting the seafood trio special with shrimp, crab meat, and scallops. After eating the seafood I could've drank the sauce. While it wasn't inexpensive, it was worth every penny and I haven't stopped thinking about it all day long.

    The steak was burnt around the edges. Had no taste. Spinach, Brussel sprouts and scallop potatoes were good. Bread and butter did not taste good. Chocolate lava cake was good but small. Price was way too high for the quality of food. Off bucket list and will not recommend to others.

    The food was good. The service was good; however, if I am going to drop $300 for a meal I don't want the guy next to me in a bowling shirt, or the next table a guy wearing a flannel shirt. Is really too much to ask for a dress code?

    I have always given Frankie Rowland's five stars but we were disappointed with our last visit. When making our appointment we were asked if it was for a special occasion and I told them it was for a birthday. It seems that Frankie's no longer offers a free dessert with your meal since our waiter appeared to have no idea that was something we got every time we went there on a "special occasion". (And we have been to Frankie Rowland's several times) The other disappointing thing was my rib eye steak. It was cooked perfectly, but unfortunately half of it was nothing but fat! I could hardly eat it and wound up taking most of it home. My wife ordered the salmon and said it was perfect. The sides and drinks were great too. As I said, I usually give this place five stars but this time they were just not as good as usual. That said, we will still go back, but I doubt that I'll order that steak again. (Even though that is what I had been ordering all the other times we were there!)

    The service was as good as it gets, being professional, friendly and always prompt. There were 5 of us celebrating a birthday, so we were given a table in a private room which added to the experience of being treated upscale. The food was well prepared and quite tasty. Both steak and seafood were cooked to perfection.

    We had a lovely time and enjoyed both food and our experience. There was a large party sitting near us so it wasn’t very peaceful but not too bad. We thought the food was very good. The steak and mushrooms were outstanding as was our service. The salad was very good and the bread just okay. The prices are pretty inflated. I may go back again, but not often for that reason alone.

    We absolutely love the restaurant, and wanted to come celebrate a special event in our lives here. We had reservations, however, we were not seated until over an hour past our reservation time. The serving staff was very nice and incredibly apologetic, but waiting an hour past our reservation time was extremely frustrating. We will definitely be thinking about that before we make reservations again.

    This was the first time we have been to Frankie Rowland's Steakhouse and it was to celebrate my mom's 86th birthday. The moment we walked in we heard Frank Sinatra playing and we loved it. We are "rat pack" fans. The food and service was outstanding. I am a martini snob and had the best martini that I have had in a very long time. Oysters Rockefeller, wedge salad and the 20 oz rib eye was to die for. The steak was just incredible, melt in your mouth good. We live about 7 minutes from the restaurant and we will be going back again.

    Our table was ready on time and our servers were great. Our primary server Tracy was amazing and will want her to be our server again. The seared scallops were cooked to perfection and the cognac and Parmesan cream sauce was heavenly. Our entrees and salads were great and the creme brûlée was eaten even when too full because it could NOT be left behind. Great food, service and ambience. Made my birthday awesome!

    Service was very rushed, to the point where the server stood there waiting for my spouse to take her last bite so she could take the plate away. Kind of ruined the whole dinner. You expect a relaxed pace at a fine dining restaurant. This server was under 21, so couldn’t even speak to the wine list.

    I usually go to the one downtown Roanoke but decided to try the one in Salem this time. Glad I did. Very beautiful restaurant. Food and service was top notch. Martinis were wonderful. Same menu as the restaurant in Roanoke. Always a pleasure!
