The Classic Cafe at Roanoke
Another great dinner. A hidden gem. Consistently great. Be back soon.
Great food, great atmosphere and great price! We loved everything!!!
I’d heard a lot of positive things and read many glowing reviews about the Classic cafe in Roanoak.
My dinner guest and I were both very unimpressed,with the cheap quality of the silverware, it was the type you typically see in a cafeteria or school dinning room. Every time I asked the waitress a question about a dish, her response was that “it’s absolutely delicious” ... it wasn’t.
The classic salad was good ,light and tasty
The tomatoe soup ( my guest eat) was delicious
The Lambchops ( 2 double chops) where very under par, fatty,under cooked and barely any meat.
(I’ve eaten lamb chops all my life these may have been the worst).
My guest had a ribeye ( no special sauce) a cheap cut, poorly prepared, lots of vains, tasteless ( we could understand why she was pushing the sauces) . The french fries were excellent, the other vegetables all good , the wine list isn’t bad but a little over priced for what is was.
We didn’t stay for desert , we won’t return.
Love The Classic for always outstanding food and service! It’s our go-to place for an excellent meal, from appetizer to dessert.
I frequently dine at Classic Cafe. Dinner 2 nights ago was fabulous as always!!!!! Consistently reliable for great atmosphere, service, and food....
We are foodies and are constantly challenged to try to find restaurants that measure up to our standards. Classic Cafe definitely does with fresh ingredients prepared in a gourmet cuisine with lovely presentations. We had a wonderful dinner and will most definitely return.
Service, food & drink were all 5 star. But unless my memory is failing, I thought a rack of lamb had 6 or 7 ribs, not 4.
Outstanding service. Great food. Pretty decent wine list. It was a nice place to celebrate our anniversary.
Salmon dinner was salmon chips/not substantial enough to taste. Reservation was at 7 but wasn't seated until 7:30. Waiter wasn't attentive, too busy.
Classic Cafe is consistently wonderful!! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. And the food is always absolutely the best!!
Haven't been in a while, but it was worth the wait. The smoked salmon appetizer was just as great as we remembered. Tried the Jägerschnitzel and it was excellent. Great lunch date!
As always, our meal at Classic Cafe was perfectly prepared and presented. The vegetables from the garden are a special treat.
We enjoyed our meal and so did our friends who joined us for our anniversary (51) lunch. It was their 1st time at The Classic and they loved the food.
See you soon!
We come to Westlake near Dallas at t least twice a year for business and this is our favorite place to eat. Great staff, food, ambience.
I have never ahead a bad meal at the Classic. If I lived in Roanoke I’d probably eat there every day. My friends were there for the first time and loved it.
Always take good care of us at The Classic. Highly recommended for the food and a good wine selection.
I have been to The Classic Café on various occasions. I like the value and the service and appreciate the extra touch by the chef and staff to ensure we have a fine dining experience.
The Classic Cafe is on our rotation list of restaurants that are sure to please. We eat at The Classic Cafe on average 5 times a year both lunch and diners. It's about a 20 mile drive from our home , but we have always found it is worth it.
The service and food is always excellent. Nothing at all to complain about!! Love this place!!
Great service, great food, it was a bit loud in the section we were at but we didn't mind.
Great food and service. Excellent steak and fish and the creme brûlée is wonderful.
4th of July dinners were unfortunately overbooked. So, wait time time with reservations was an hour. The delicious meals helped the pain as did the excellent wait staff.
Awesome service! The attention was just right, not over done. The food was outstanding for the price. Thanks for a great night.
Dinner celebration before vacation. Wait staff was good and Francis is awesome! Our food was OUTSTANDING as usual!
The food is wonderful and they prepare with fresh ingredients often harvested from their own garden. But the true spotlight is the warm reception you get from the moment you walk through the door by the personable staff. Even the chef comes out to check on everyone multiple times throughout your dining experience.
Dinner with family from out of town at Classic Cafe was a treat. Everything was so delicious and the service was outstanding. Always love going there as the food never disappoints. Enjoyed the seasonal shrimp and okra fritter appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had mixed grill and i enjoyed the crab topped trout. We even had dessert (sheet cake) which was good, although maybe not as good as my mom's :) Definitely one of our favorites, and can't wait to go back.
It is so nice to have a great restaurant stay... great. The food was delicious, the service was attentive but unobtrusive, and the ambiance was peaceful. We went to Perry's in Grapevine three weeks earlier and it pales in comparison with Classic Cafe. In the future, if we want an upscale meal we will stay with the sure thing!
Food was excellent. Very creative and well presented. Great specials and plenty of menu items to choose from and served by a very knowledgeable informed waiter. The service was outstanding. Great place for a special occasion dinner!
Once again we had a wonderful meal, great service and atmosphere highlighted by guitarist.
The Classic is just that...classic. I love the pace, the ambience, the service. Food is always tasty and creative. Definitely a place of refreshment in the crazy, noisy dining world that is so prevalent today. Thank you for the dining pleasure.
Love this place. Planning our next meal there. Taking the whole family!
Overall great upscale dinner place. Nice for a date, anniversary, etc but would be too pricey for most people to be “everyday dining”.
As usual, the food and service at the Classic Cafe were wonderful. We were celebrating our anniversary on a Tuesday night. We both started with the Classic Salad, which combines a tasty selection of organic lettuce, apples, spiced walnuts and blue cheese - pretty heart healthy. My husband loved the Mixed Grill consisting of sausage, duck and lamb garnished with an onion marmalade. It was quite a treat for him, since it's not a dish that I would attempt to conquer at home! Because The Classic Cafe harvests some of its vegetable offerings from the rooftop garden, I chose the Grilled Vegetables as my main course. Good choice - cooked to perfectly bring out their natural sweetness. After dinner we were pleasantly surprised by a complimentary dish of ice cream, fruit and chocolate. And the Pinot Noir was excellent, too! No better way to celebrate!
Great experience as always. Thank you CC
Classic is always a wonderful experience! The owners are always around; and the chef is one of the best in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
This was our first time visiting to the Classic Cafe, everything was wonderful. We had Reservations for 5pm which was perfect timing.
I would highly recommend this Resturant super location, very friendly Staff.
We've dined at The Classic several times for both a casual lunches & special occasion dinners. We've never been disappointed, whether its just two of us, family occasions or special friends. The menu offers a great selection of fine cuisine dishes and they are always prepared to perfection, both in their taste & presentation. The wine list is extensive and the option of glass only choices is very wise, especially for lunches. The wait staff has always been very courteous, professional and knowledgeable in regards to menu and wine choices. We also love the fact that herbs are grown locally. The Classic has become the pinnacle of our dining experiences for this area.
Excellent as always. The mushroom soup and the lamb were perfectly done.
Christine was an excellent server, very attentivs, friendly and professional. Really enjoyed Chef Youts' food! Crab cakes and Warm Brie appetizers were delicious! Lamb chops were very tasty, especially the sauce. Finished with the Classic Coffee (which included a raspberry liqueur) and the dessert sampler- we chose the bread pudding, seasonal sorbet and jalapeño apple cobbler, each of which we'd recommend. We look forward to returning.
We had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was very well presented and tasted great! We’ll certainly be back!
