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.

Ordered the beef tenderloin with green beans and red cabbage. The green beans were way over salty as was the beef tenderloin. The other order was the salmon pasta, a special on the menu. It was also way too salty and there was hardly any salmon in the dish at all. Not a good experience.

Saw an ad for this and decided to try it. Had gazpacho and it was puréed with croutons and was different than what i am used to. The Beef Bourguignon had good flavor sauce but the beef was dry and did not seem like it was cooked the same day. Service was great and drinks were good but was hoping for a little more. Especially at the price point. Based on this first visit, If I were to visit again, I would order something else.

I've been going there since it opened many years ago and it has always been just grand. Not recommended for children because it is an adult atmosphere and menu!!

This cafe is in a small unique venue (A restored home done in a very tasteful manner.) There are table cloths on all tables and the servers are well dressed. There was “quiet” live music when we ate there. The service was excellent, the servers were well acquainted withe the menu, and the food was very good. This is a “go to place” for any special occasion. We loved it and will definitely return.

I just couldnt ask for a more appropriate Anniversary venue. Conversation can be normal to soft without bleed over from other tables, which are appropriately spaced and distanced. The food has always been excellent and superbly prepared with excellent service, attending us at just the right amount of attention. Francis as the matre d' has no equals in personality, care, warmth in attention and conversation. He is the star gem of all the staff and has been for a very long time. This will continue to be a highly rated favorite of ours. You spend a little, but for being a small-ish dining room (s) with comfortable distances between tables and for gourmet chef preparation by the owner, it is well worth it.

This is such a great little jewel in Roanoke. The food is unfailingly wonderful and the drinks are fabulous, too. Service was excellent, checked with us often but not intrusively. The ambiance is comfortable and perfect for catching up with friends.

I had the shrimp and okra fritter which was divine. Beef medallions were perfectly cooked and delicious especially with port balsamic sauce. I can't wait to return!
