    Excellent food and service! The only recommendation I have would be to have more scallops than four sitting atop all that risotto. All three appetizers (brie, pork belly, oysters) were to die for, and the pork ribeye and Cajun shrimp and crayfish were wonderful!

    Excellent spot. Great service, seated immediately even though we were a little early. Apps and food came out quickly! Our server was extremely friendly and efficient. If I had to pick something they use little ice cubes in the old fashion instead of one large cube. Great place would highly recommend.

    Great food and great atmosphere! We have eaten here about once a month since the New Years holiday. The food is always excellent, I recommend the Mahi Mahi and the filet. Each time I have had them both were delicious as well as the occasional chefs special. It's a bit pricey but thoroughly enjoyable! Highly recommended.

    I LOVE Skyline! The food is consistently great, the views are beautiful, and the service exceptional. I've never had an off experience there, so it is our go-to for special occasions. Last night was my son's jr prom, and he and his date had a wonderful time, even though they were very nervous. The servers and hostess made our double reservations and experience a breeze. (The Moms had a separate table with their own fun time!) Plus the photo opportunity is unbeatable. I want to thank our servers for taking care of our kids and us; we will definitely return. All the dishes were so pretty and enjoyed thoroughly. Thank you!

    Very happy we found the Skyline restaurant on the top of the Virginian Hotel. We three all enjoyed our dinners of roasted pecan-crusted salmon and blackened mahi. Fried oyster appetizer was plentiful and delicious! Fun cocktails, nice wine list. Will be back to enjoy the dining al fresco once it's warm enough!

    Our server Victoria was perfect. Very attentive, friendly and helpful. I was celebrating my best friend's birthday and we enjoyed the view while dining there. Food was very good, we both had the Grilled Chicken Breast. However my dish had too many onions, but I'm not an onion fan. The cocktail I had was delicious - Peach Royal. I opted for Peach Crown, instead of Apple Crown. I love Peach Crown! We both had dessert - it was her birthday! She had the Apple Crisp. I had the Chocolate Cake. Both were SO good. The manager came by to check on us, which was a nice touch. Even thanked us for choosing to be there. It was a great dining experience.

    One of our favorite date-night restaurants. Quality of the food and service are always top-notch. This particular evening, the weather was amazing and we enjoyed the fabulous view of the city. The seared scallops over the pumpkin risotto is my absolute favorite. My wife had the steak salad. The steak was cooked medium rare perfectly . But I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu.

    Good food. Good service. Very, very loud party of 4 guys at a nearby table should have been asked to be more quiet. My wife and I each had an entree and one drink. No appetizers. No sides. No deserts. With tip, it was almost a $100 meal. Too pricey for what it was.

    Loved the Brie and oyster appetizers as well as our cocktails, but after that…not great. One meal came out cold and very salty. The manager had a new sandwich made, but it too was very salty. He did remove it from the bill and offered a free dessert. Others in our party were finished by this time though and full, so we passed on the dessert. I think it was just an off night. We were seated outdoors but due to rain, there was no view and it was very loud. Kind of a bummer as we were celebrating a birthday.

    There is power in the Skyline of Lynchburg's BEST all around restaurant and bar. Sitting on top of The Virginian and managed by the most customer concerned and personsl attentive manager Noel, the updated menu and drink list is terrific. Masters at martinis with a master chef, you will not be disappointed. Value is built in. From the best burgers to filets. Thank you Noel and your entire team for a great experience. We also are impressed with John who manages the valet, great, and professional.

    The food was expensive, but delicious! It was a treat for my mother's 91st birthday, we splurged and truly enjoyed every bite! The valet parking was super convenient as we were coming with a wheelchair and needed to be close for access. It was really nice not to have to leave mom to go park the car! There was something delicious for each person, although my daughter was bummed that she was unable to get the salmon without the pecan coating. It would have been nice to have that option.

    Had been to skyline once before and everything was great. Yesterday was my second time eating there and I must say it has gone down hill. Our waitress had zero personality and was somewhat rude. She didn't tell us any specials they had for the evening. My husband and I both got the skyline burger and it was as hard as a hockey puck, completely burnt. They advertise the burger is served with parmesan fries but the fries we were served were cold and had no seasoning on them.

    We were seated immediately with our reservation. Our server Sean was very attentive and a joy to talk with. The appetizers were delicious. Fried oysters, coconut shrimp and pork belly. Then the entree of filet mignon and lobster tail over blistered green beans and tomatoes with bernaise sauce was just the right portion and so good. My son's burger and fries looked spectacular! He thoroughly enjoyed it. The chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream was decadent. We enjoyed everything!
