Global, International
Set in an unassuming blue house with a storied history, The Classic serves globally-inspired menu items, prepared with farm-quality ingredients by a creative and collaborative kitchen team. The menu of fresh seafood, premium steaks and pastas includes items that follow the seasons, as fruits and vegetables ripen in The Classic’s on-site garden. The Classic offers a full bar, craft cocktails, and a wine list carefully selected to complement the menu. Live classical guitar with a rock twist can be heard in the bar on Friday and Saturday nights.

Service at The Classic is warm, professional and knowledgeable – a place where guests are recognized and treated like family. Quaint and relaxing ambience is highlighted with pops of colorful modern art by acclaimed artist Carolyn Riegelman.

In addition to in-house dining, The Classic offers curbside pick-up and local delivery of regular menu items as well as to-go-only blue plate specials, take-and-bake options, wine, and cocktails.

    Casual atmosphere and amazing friendly service combined with gourmet food make Classic Cafe a great place for a special occasion or just a nice night out. Our shrimp and blue cheese appetizer was a great start and I think I would have been happy to eat a dozen more. The Classic salad with blue cheese was crisp and fresh with a creamy dressing. My steak was perfect to temperature and my wife's fish was flaky and moist. We finished with jalapeno apple cobbler and French press coffee. Such a great experience.

    The Classic Cafe never disappoints. The atmosphere is relaxed & comfortable & the staff is attentive, personable, & very good at what they do. Every bite of every dish is delicious & perfectly prepared. I’ve taken so many family members & friends & everyone has left a big fan. Some personal favorites are the smoked salmon appetizer, the beef medallions, the braised cabbage (seriously!), & the jalapeño apple cobbler!

    My birthday dinner was amazing at the Classic Cafe. I really appreciated the low noise level. No irritating loud music. And the food never disappoints. I know the restaurant has been around forever but I wonder with their higher than most prices why they haven’t updated their interior. Maybe lower lighting, pink linen tablecloths, local artists or other pictures on the walls, votive candles on the tables or a single flower in a vase. It just needs that extra touch of elegance.

    The Classic Cafe at Roanoke absolutely exceeded our expectations! The ambiance was perfect, a wonderful classic guitarist at the perfect volume and tables spaced apart so that you have privacy as well. The food was outstanding!!! We had the smoked salmon appetizer which was out of this world! The cocktails were lovely and delicious. The entrees were better than many Dallas restaurants we’ve been to - they really make each dish to perfection. The waitstaff was the icing on the cake. Julie was so professional, knowledgeable, incredibly warm and friendly! We can’t wait to come back and wish we had found this gem in Roanoke sooner!

    Top quality in a relaxing yet classy setting. I usually get the rib eye but got the special red fish this time. Awesome. The bread pudding was incredible although my wife ate more than her share. Great place to eat.

Everything was perfect. 5 stars does not do justice to our experience. Wonderful dining experience. The most perfect evening …..thank you Classic Cafe.

    We enjoyed an early dinner at The Classic on New Year's Eve. Our meals were enjoyable but my husband ordered medium to medium well beef and was served medium rare. My skillet pork was cooked to perfection. Everything else was wonderful! We look forward to coming back in 2023!!!

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. On 12/27 we arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation but were seated promptly by a lovely hostess who made us feel welcome right away. What an impressive start to the most wonderful birthday dinner I've had in a while. Jeff was our server; fun and knowledgeable about the menu, made several great suggestions. Francis; charming and personable; a role model other GMs should aspire to. Curtis, one of the owners, congenial and welcoming. He chatted with us about the changes that the business made due to Covid-19. Ok, you are wanting to know about the food (you would not have read this far to see what the 5-star rating was about). Appetizers that were shared: Bleu cheese & almond-stuffed shrimp, Cream of roasted poblano soup (which they split for us). The soup was exquisite, and the shrimp were tasty. Entree's: Seared maple leaf breast of duck with a cherry rosemary sauce, garlic mash & steamed green beans for me; Prime beef ribeye, garlic mashed & braised red cabbage for him. I have never had a duck dish that was cooked so well; the steak had a wonderful pepper crust, tender, both proteins melted in your mouth. Dessert: dinner ended in an epic experience with taste, kindness, and laughter. Beth Marie’s salted caramel ice cream, jalapeno apple cobbler with Beth Marie's vanilla ice cream. Both were a perfect end to a delicious meal. The thing that made this the most scrumptious time at a restaurant: I had not said it was a birthday celebration on the reservation. Jeff asked if we were celebrating Birthday? whose? When my dessert was brought out it was on a chilled plate with a personal message done in chocolate ganache & strawberry coulis. AND we found out that another guest had bought one of our desserts, WOW, perfect ending to a special night. Thank you everyone for making my birthday exceptional!!

    The Classic Café is the finest restaurant in DFW at any price point. Chris, Curtis and Francis are warm and friendly hosts who put their patrons first. We feel like we are going home for a family holiday dinner whenever we go. The food is fantastic, the wine selection wonderful, the cocktails delicious and the pace perfect. We have made it our first choice for many years and can't wait to dine at the CC again.

    The food and service were very good! It was great to see the owner coming by the tables multiple times to speak with Patrons. I would have loved to see more options on the menu! Extremely limited from a steak standpoint. The restaurant was very quite (which we enjoyed) and we felt like the staff did a good job of placing patrons in areas where they could have a bit of privacy! I do think that the drinks were priced well, but the appetizers and main courses were very over priced.
