Live classical guitar with a rock twist can be heard in the bar on Friday and Saturday nights.

Had a birthday celebration for my wife and it was wonderful. The food, service and atmosphere was fantastic! We took our time to enjoy four courses with cocktails, after dinner drinks and dessert. The folks at Classic are so friendly and attentive.

What an incredible evening at the Classic Cafe, Roanoke’s fine dining gem. We celebrated our anniversary there this year and totally enjoyed our meal. Started with a shrimp and corn fritter and a generous portion of their house smoked salmon with crostinis. Lamb Chops are the best thing on the menu! Beef Bourginon was also amazing. The mashed potatoes and their pickled cabbage were fabulous as well. Finished off with dessert - Texas sheet cake with an anniversary wish in chocolate and Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée. As always, service was great. Can’t wait for our next visit.

We were visiting from Chicago and I made the reservation on the fly hoping for a great dinner. We certainly were not disappointed in any way! The service we received by Julie was top notch. Her recommendations were spot on. The food was amazing and the restaurant was quaint, small and intimate. Just what I was hoping to find! As we were about to leave, we were greeted by the owner Francis. He was so personable and genuine. We will definitely be back.

We had a lovely New Years Eve dinner. For the price I think it would be nice to include a glass of champagne. Our server did a great job. Our group of 7 enjoyed everything that we ordered. Would definitely recommend.

We made reservations for New Years Eve. We had been here before about 4 years ago for a late Valentine’s dinner and we were not very impressed but decided to give it another try. So glad we did! We had an early 4:30 appointment and we were quickly seated. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious! My husband ordered the trout which was wonderful! I had the tenderloin and it rivaled if not exceeded the other big name restaurants. The sides were also delicious. The manager ( unfortunately didn’t get his name) checked on us after each course. He was amazing as was our waitress. We will definitely become regulars at The Classic.

The service was very good. Greeted by the owners who helped pick an excellent wine. Food was prepared nicely and also attractively presented.

The food itself was very good. Steak prepared to my liking and the quality of the meat good. Much of the food is locally sourced which, for me, is an added bonus.

Service was great! Smoked salmon, lamb chops, jagerschnitzel, and texas sheet cake were amazing! For me, the roasted garlic should have been cooked longer to be spreadable, but maybe this is a different style than I am used to. Would definitely go back!!!
