We went for our annual family ladies tea, and we had 4 adults and 5 children with ages ranging from 9-1. They set us up well and served us like royalty. Their staff was friendly and attentive. They had a vast range of food choices that satisfied all of our needs.

We celebrated my girlfriend's birthday with a couple of friends last week.. We had a wonderful Sunday brunch with delicious food, beautiful music and great conversation. Afterward, we sat by the fire in the lobby to talk some more. It's a great place to go.

We made a reservation for 10, not realizing that the full buffet doesn't start until 11:30. So we decided to stay and make the best of it. No one took our drink order for 15 minutes, so we finally just got up and went to the buffet. Around 10:30 they started clearing some things from the continental breakfast area, and at 10:40 it was totally gone and someone was taking fruit away as my husband was serving himself! They are completely closed down from 11:00-11:30, so I don't think it is necessary to clear it all out while people who paid are still eating.

We dined there on New Year’s Day and found the food to be delicious as usual. There was a difference we discovered that on holidays there are more dining tables placed on the floor necessitating the removal of the piano, omelette bar, and additional food serving rack.

It has the effect of changing the atmosphere making it seem more like an ordinary buffet where you don’t get to truly experience the setting in a truly stylish and casual setting.

However, the overall experience was excellent and I’ll be back, but not on a holiday.

I made reservations thru open table pretty far in advance.
I understand we had a large group but we were one of 2 tables in the large “side” room next to stacked chairs for a long time with SEVERAL tables open in the main room even thru our meal. The ambiance in the main room is special.. you can see the dancing/the Regency Room entertainers. I was hoping to share this special ambiance with my family.. not even close.. Disappointed.

For the last several years, it has been a tradition for my family to visit the Hotel for the Christmas buffet and tour the trees. We make reservations on the first day that the Hotel accepts them to ensure a great experience in the beautiful main dining room. After our most recent experience, however, we may not return. Last week, we arrived maybe 20 minutes early for our reservation only to be met with a surly hostess who ushered us off to a waiting area because our table wasn't ready. While waiting, we noticed four families come in, some without reservations, be immediately seated in the main dining room. At the time of our reservation, we inquired about the status of our table. The same hostess, with even more agitation dismissed us again, to the point that we asked another host. At this point, the hostess was quite unprofessional and complained about us to the other staff member in front of us. A few moments later we were rushed to the far side of the extended dining area, which is not as
nice. The table didn't have real chairs, in that they were obviously brought in from the conference rooms. I've sat in them many times for work meetings. All in all, the food was just okay, but the experience was marred by employees. This issue has also been addressed directly with management, which has not been addressed. If it goes unanswered, we will look at other places for this tradition. The standard that the Hotel Roanoke is known for was definitely not upheld! We were told at the time we arrived that our table was still occupied. The hostess indicated that our assigned table was in the main dining room. We should have been given the option to wait for the table in the main dining room or accept the option in the adjacent room.

Everything was excellent except the service was very slow. Apparently our waiter was doubling as the bartender - so there was a considerable wait at each stage; ie, order, drinks, starters, main course, deserts, and bill. The ambiance, food and drink were all excellent and the waiter was very personable but stretched too thin. All in all a very costly meal for a special occasion was spoiled by the slow service.

we were a group of ten and were blindsided by the price. when this was planned in November the Web site showed Sunday lunch buffet was $18. When we got our bills it was $30.

Also wait staff didn't inform us of all the choices and various locations of food offered. I ended up paying $30 for egg cassarole and diced potatoes and not fully ripe fruit. I didn't know of the sliced beef, etc. offered in the room in the back, past the dessert area.

We went to the Hotel Roanoke for my son's 17th birthday. It was perfect! Our waiter, Drew, was fabulous. Everyone on staff made a fuss over my son. The food was excellent. The service impeccable. Atmosphere was just lovely. The entire family had a wonderful time. We will definitely be back for other special occasions - and its a 2 hour drive for us. Totally worth the drive.

Very disappointed. Scrambled eggs were cold; limited deserts; did not clear table plates between courses; did not offer additional coffee; bacon not cooked; started turning off lights and shut down food buffet prior to second 11:30 seating. The free breakfast at the Hampton Inns is actually better.

Our family had a multi-birthday celebration in the Virginia Room of the Regency Room and it was fabulous. The food and the service were outstanding. We had a variety of crab cakes, surf & turf, Appalachian Trout, Salmon and Filet. All were excellent. The service was remarkable - very knowledgeable staff dressed in uniform, checking in on us and making excellent suggestions. We ended the evening with Bananas Foster Flambé (Thanks, Alex). A very memorable evening.

Without any warning a newspaper photographer was taking photos of diners with the permission of the management. When confronted the photographer was threatening and rude. This was an invasion of our privacy and spoiled the special occasion. That management would invite and/or allow this was thoughtless. The food selection was limited. The quality of the food was average and some dishes were not promptly refreshed. I've dined here numerous times over the years, and the quality has steadily declined. The brunch is in NO way worth the $30 per person.
