    The shrimp and scallops Chesapeake was too salty for my taste. My mother and daughter had the pork chops and they were difficult to cut for my mom. My husband had the filet and liked it very much. The peanut soup was delicious and so was the bananas foster.

    We took our Utah visitors there and it was even better than I remembered as a VA Tech student 50 years ago! Casey was our server and he was delightful and extremely helpful without being intrusive. Having just moved back to VA from Utah, I really appreciated the chilled oysters on the half shell and perfect coktail sauce. Ut Prosim!

    This is our fourth trip to the Regency room. We make it a point of stopping at the hotel for an overnight stay every time we travel west . Dinner was phenomenal. Brittany, our server, was very pleasant and very engaging. The maitre d has been the same maitre d over the years and he is the most delightful man. He is pleasant from the moment we walk in until the moment we leave and he treats each and every guest like they are the one and only.

    The Saturday dinner was divine, as always! The Maitre'd was amazing! Such exquisite attention to detail and to every patron! He is a treasure and Hotel Roanoke is blessed to have him! He sets the tone for the evening, and continues to monitor entire room while giving each guest his personal attention without being intrusive. The dinner itself was delicious as always! The prime rib and the Bananas Foster were both delicious! Such an enjoyable total experience here vs just a dinner out! From start to finish it was lovely! The Jazz trio were great , as always, playing a diverse repertoire for all to enjoy but not so loud as to make it difficult to hear your dinner partner. Played incredibly well, and dancing just adds to the fabulous evening! We will be back again and again, and enjoyed the very diverse Sunday buffet the next morning, as well! Be sure to go into the 2nd room near the back of the larger room for some truly delightful choices! Yum!!

    The live music was just a bit too loud, making conversation sometimes difficult. Our server Brittany was excellent. One of our four plates had to be reheated and it took a considerable amount of time. Overall food and service made up for these minor issues. We would Highly Recommend dinner in the Regency Room!

    Classic dining experience in an elegant dining room! A combo was playing dinner music and a few couples were dancing. The food surpassed our expectations! We had great fish and seafood dishes, and many menu items are done with a Southern touch. Service was gracious and not rushed, which made for a lovely experience all around.

    A diverse southern inspired menu beautifully presented with obvious preparation and execution by a French trained or inspired kitchen. Classic service by a knowledgeable staff added to the enjoyment of the meal as did the warm hospitality of the maître d’ and front of house staff. The Regency Room would succeed in New York, D.C., or Charleston, but is a true gem tucked away in the Hotel Roanoke.

    Brunch and dinner in the Regency Room are truly a "must" for anyone visiting the Roanoke area. Each and every staff member, from the parking attendants, servers and host, set the precedent for what customer service should be today. Our Saturday morning brunch featured a made-to-order omelet station, fine pastries, assorted meats, smoked salmon and possibly the best sausage, gravy and biscuits we have ever eaten. We were grateful for the recommendations of our server, Casey, including some of his favorites - the homemade pecan sweet rolls. For dinner, we had a relaxing evening listening to the jazz ensemble preforming for the guests. Our meal included the She Crab Bisque, Shrimp and Scallop Chesapeake and Hotel Roanoke's Spoon Bread - all of which exceeded our expectations! Our server, Caleb, created an even more memorable evening by preparing Bananas Foster at our table side. Our experience at the Regency Room far exceeds the 5 star review permitted - you will not be disappointed!

    If you need a lovely, peaceful, and elegant date night, this is a wonderful place to do it. In our case, my mother, mother in law and I "solved all the world's problems" over pre dinner drinks and appetizers in the 1882 bar. Then we moved over to close down The Regency Room with a wonderful dinner. i Including cocktails, wine, fresh bread, Monk fish, shrimp, and scallops. We finished the food portion of our "girls' night" with french pressed coffee and 3 desserts. The best part was bananas foster, made in front of us by our wonderful server Caleb (ask for Caleb, he's awesome!). We spent the night (must stay safe after hours at the bar) and came home the next morning. The hotel is beautiful and historic. We can't do this except on rare occasion. So worth it!! Will do again some day.
