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.

This was an elegant and beautifully themed restaurant. The service was exceptional as well as the owner. He was kind enough to check on my date and I since it was our first time. 10/10 dining

We love The Classic Cafe. Excellent food and service and worth the price. The atmosphere is refined yet friendly and feels like eating at home with a private chef. We love it so much we try to go once a month. It's far and away my favorite restaurant in the DFW area.

My parents love this place so we decided to give it a try. Definitely a different vibe since it's in a little old house. The service was good and the food was tasty. Husband didn't like that there were only 3 choices for sides, none really went well with his fish. The desert was very tasty as well. Our main complaint is that in our opinion, it was pretty overpriced for what we got.

This was our second time dining here. Great food and great service. The chef knows how to prepare the a fantastic meal. We had a party of 6 and all walked away saying it was one of the best meals we have ever had. Beef medallions cooked medium rare was amazing, horseradish sauce added an extra level of flavor to the lamb. Save room for the Texas sheet cake!

What a lovely little gem this is in Roanoke.
When you step inside it’s not what you would think from the outside of the building. The feel is cozy, the service was super genuine and I think we met or talked to almost every employee. The food was great and perfect for my husbands birthday date night. It did not disappoint! I had the filet and it was sooo good.

First time back since reopening. Food was top notch. Had lamb chop feature - excellent. Wife had tenderloin - also great. Staff was very attentive including Curtis making the rounds. Great to see them back with sane or possibly better quality.

We are locals, but our first time at The Classic and boy are we happy. The Classic is a boutique fine dining establishment with a menu that should have something for everyone. So here is the rundown on dinner for four, pretty straightforward. 1. Trout, Outstanding. 2. Medallions of Filet, Outstanding, two medallions of filet with two sides (mashed potatoes and fresh sautéed green beans) 3. 7oz Filet, Outstanding and 4. Ribeye, Outstanding. This is not a Bob’s or Perry’s Steakhouse, this is a local fine dining restaurant with fabulous food. Explore their menu.

We were celebrating a birthday and we all have different tastes in entrees. Great selection of meat and fish. The baked Brie was terrific, salads tasty, and who doesn’t love crème brûlée? The tenderloin medallions were very hood, but the ribeye was probably the best we have ever had. So tender and juicy, perfectly cooked. The only criticism would be the duck breast. The meat was very tasty and perfect temperature, but the skin was not cooked nearly enough and was quite chewy, fat not rendered enough. Other than that, exceptional service and a lovely place for a quiet dinner. Will definitely return when I’m back in the Ft Worth area.

My first time back in many years. Wanted to celebrate my anniversary, and stay close to home.

We were seated immediately, pampered like royalty, and enjoyed the Asian salmon and trout. The tomato basil soup have always been my favorite, and still is!!

Francis, Curtis and his brother continue to provide excellent service and hospitality. I look forward to returning.

Service was amazing....but the food was even better! I had the duck and hubby had the salmon and both were cooked to perfection. We also had the Blueberry buttermilk pie for dessert (wanted to try something new), and it was very tasty with the French pressed coffee. We will definitely be back.

The Classic Cafe has continued to be a restaurant with excellent food, gracious owners who are often there, excellent management and staff and a charming atmosphere. We have loved this restaurant and owners/management for the 24 years we have lived out in this area. If you haven't tried it yet, you are in for a wonderful evening when you do.

The restaurant was a great experience. The food was excellent and expertly prepared. The presentation was great. The service staff was friendly and helpful.

One little nitpicky thing: They described the Blueberry buttermilk pie as like a chess pie. Being from the deep south, I can tell you that in my opinion, it is not really very close at all. It was delicious. When they said it was like a chess pie my expectations were different than what the pie actually was. It was all a texture thing, not a quality or taste issue.

I would highly recommend the jalapeno apple cobbler.

The service was terrific. Very well paced. We were not rushed through dinner nor did we have any extended wait times in between courses. Our wait person Sky was extremely knowledgeable, professional and personable. She made us feel like we were family. My wife said the tomato basil soup was the best she has ever had. Highly recommend the Grilled Australian Lamb Chops as well as the Choice Beef Tenderloin. Both seasoned and cooked perfectly. This was our first time dining here, but definitely not our last.
