Beautiful historic hotel- server was super friendly, but service just missed the mark overall. Pretty sure it was an understaffing issue.

We were told the Sunday buffet would not be open 30 minutes before we were to arrive. That wasn't enough time to change our plans. So, we came anyway and found that the menu offered us was very limited indeed compared to what is normally Sunday fare. No main meat dishes like steak, etc. Wraps, burgers, etc. were offered. We had hoped for something really special to celebrate a family birthday and it turned out to be just mediocre. I know we live in COVID times and things can change quickly, but I can't believe that they just found out they were cancelling just 30 minutes before the buffet was to begin. I can only give a good recommendation based on times past when the Sunday brunch was offered.

The Regency Room is our “go-to” venue to celebrate our family special occasions. This time we were celebrating a birthday. We have never been disappointed. The ambiance, food, and service consistently exceed our expectations.

The breakfast experience felt safe and the careful considerations were evident at the breakfast buffet.
The food was very good. The best was the sausage gravy and biscuits-a dish that i find very difficult to "get properly seasoned" and this was great. The sausage links are awesome .
The service by Bobby is consistently spot on and very professional. We have had him before here and were happy he was assigned to our table.
Always a pleasant experience at the Regency Room. Keep up the great work in this difficult time.

We go to The Regency Room Sunday brunch for special occasions. My wife and I were celebrating our 12th anniversary with her parents. We enjoy both the breakfast and lunch menus. Both are always delicious. We like the variety of both menus, including the dessert bar. Our server was Bobby, who has waited on us during past visits. He is always very polite and very prompt with our requests. We enjoy the piano music. We will continue to make The Regency Room our first choice for special occasions.

We arrived for Sunday brunch at 12:30 following a business meeting. Our waiter Bobby was excellent and explained how the food was arranged. We began our meal with the She Crab Soup that was very flavorful with flakes of crab and a hint of sherry. The prime rib was tasty and paired well with the cold spiced shrimp. We didn’t eat any of the breakfast items but did have a glass of the fresh squeezed orange juice. Unfortunately by 1:30 the desserts were exhausted and only the cheesecake was left. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

We were at the Regency Room for Valentines Day lunch. Our waiter and the remainder of the staff was fantastic, but the food, a Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Hamburger with fries, were just average in taste. The lettuce for the burger was wilted and the burger tasteless, per my sweetheart. The Regency Room offers a buffet for lunch, but I have never been impressed and can’t eat what is charged for the buffet. The ambiance was great - it’s a beautiful restaurant. Yes, we will go again, but we will stick to dinner which has a much better menu.

The Regency Room is one of our favorite places to dine, and we always look forward to their Sunday Brunch buffet. On this visit, it was our Anniversary, and the first place that came to mind to celebrate was the Regency Room. Our only negative comment would be that we both were looking forward to the She Crab soup - but there was none. However, everything else that we ate was delicious as usual.

The reason I would recommend the Hotel Roa Noke Regency Room is based on past experiences through the years. I am a frequent diner, particularly at lunch. However, I have noticed a decline in service. There are several outstanding servers. However, there is a noticeable attitude shift at the host/hostess stand. I don’t recall the last time being greeted with anything other than a blasé attitude. The Regency Room deserves better than that. There are employees who serve dual roles as waitstaff and hostess. We have been rushed through our lunch by one particular employee who seems impatient and anxious to leave and will almost stand over us to take our payment. While she rushes us through our lunch she certainly doesn’t mind taking time to visit and laugh (loudly) with other employees. Our server at this last visit was OUTSTANDING! One of the best! He was attentive without being obtrusive. My out of town guests were quite impressed with him...not so much with the hostess.

Outstanding class act. The service is impeccable from entrance to exit. Everything is so perfect that I ate there two nights in a row! The seafood dishes are all amazing, the pork chop excellent and perfectly cooked, the duck-fat seared filet mignon is a true classic that one cannot forget. All service is world-class.

For $35 each, I would expect something other than frozen, small shrimp and some other form of fresh seafood. There was no cream cheese or bagels to go with the smoked salmon and the famous peanut soup was so one dimensional I questioned whether or not there was any "peanut" in it. Our server basically ignored us once we got our plates of food, but when he did visit the table, he just poured fresh coffee in my cup, not asking if I wanted anymore, never refilled the coffee cream, and never refilled our water glasses. I've been to a lot of Sunday buffets and this one was definitely not worth the money. Mostly a bunch of wealthy snobs there wanting to make sure they dined somewhere where there was no riffraff. I won't be going again.

We’ve had brunch at the Regency Room before. It was better last time. The food was good, nice selection. Bobby our waiter and Keven, his assistant were awesome. We will be back for Thanksgiving weekend. The value today just wasn’t there, while the food was good, we could’ve spent less on a “sit down” brunch at several other restaurants in the area that would’ve had more elevated food.

As a sidebar: there was a medical emergency (absolutely not dining or food related) in the dining room while we were there. The staff handled it seamlessly. No scene was caused, the staff from waitstaff, the management, to security were calm cool and colllected, respectful to the family and even managed to give some privacy to the situation before EMS arrived. Kudos for a quick and appropriate response to a difficult situation.

Wonderful dining experience. Dinner was exceptional. The food was paired and prepared expertly with fresh ingredients. My husband loved the complimentary bread. The filet mignon, broccolini, and truffle mashed potatoes were cooked perfectly and delicious. The sticky toffee pudding was one of the best desserts ever, decadent. The restaurant setting is great for a date. The live soft music on a Friday evening was quite enjoyable. The wine list is extensive. Only negative, wish parking was free for diners.

The food at the breakfast buffet was good with a good selection. The service was surprisingly bad for that type of restaurant. The restaurant was not at all crowded, but the server took too long to take our owner. We could see them across the room setting up tables. The server barely spoke to us and didn't check on us.

We ate at The Regency Room this past Sunday for dinner and absolutely enjoyed the entire experience. The staff was very friendly and courteous and the dining room is beautiful.

Our food was prepared perfectly and everything was nice and fresh. Our server Carson did a great job. I had the filet mignon and my wife and son had the pork chops. We all enjoyed our meals and I do highly recommend the "Hotel Roanoke Spoon Bread" as company to the meal. We also greatly appreciated the dessert gesture by the staff at the end of our meal as we were celebrating our anniversary.

Definitely a great dining experience with excellent atmosphere, great food, nice portions and excellent service!
