Great food and service. Wait staff was very attentive.
Had been to this restaurant 40 years ago on a business trip. This restaurant which had been the place to go in Roanoke since opening in 1939 is located in the Roanoke Hotel and Conference Center. Although a new owner, the hotel and restaurant returned to its original glory via an extensive renovation. The food, service and ambiance as good as 40 years ago. A real gem! And a band with dancing during dinner on weekends an added plus. Very generous portions of excellent food in a great atmosphere.
Service was impeccable - outstanding!!! Food was delicious - truly superb! I love the hotel Regency Room - but the music (as great as it was) could have been a tad softer so we could talk... unfortunately the volume curtailed the conversation. It was wonderful music - song choices were perfect for us but we wanted to turn down the volume a bit!
The room is lovely - old school elegant. They service was on the formal side but seasoned with Southern charm. The food was lovely. Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Wonderful bread. Three things that need attention: the first (and the most irritating) was the martini my husband ordered. He asked for Hendricks and on the bill were two charges: first $4 for the martini and then a $13 surcharge for the Hendricks. A $17 martini -even for folks from the pricey East coast was sticker shock. We ate on the late side and I appreciate the staff has to break down tables to get ready for breakfast service, but in a fancy dining room it’s disconcerting to have staff changing table settings (done as quietly as possibly) around you while you eat. Last and this is sort of picky - but, again for a venue that is totally high end old school the linen service need to be instructed to iron the liners that go under the table cloths and drape down the sides of the table. Mr Carson would not have been pleased.
Best service in Roanoke: the proper amount of friendliness and professionalism combine to make this classy 4 star restaurant the bee’s knees! 😄
Sunday brunch. Lovely ambience and good service. Food as good as it can be for a buffet. Roast beef and omelettes especially tasty.
We wanted very nice dining experience and we knew The Regency Room was the place to go. Great atmosphere, delicious food, impeccable service in a beautiful and relaxed setting. Richard, our server, and the others that assisted were excellent!! We could not have asked for better evening! We look forward to our next visit.
Excellent! Staff was attentive and very professional.
Excellent food and wine. Excellent service; Quiet for talk.
Perfect! Was with the drive from North Carolina to take our son out for his birthday.
We went to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and they were offering a special brunch menu. It was only $18 per person and absolutely fantastic. The service, atmosphere, and food was outstanding and I can't wait to return for another visit.
Very nice birthday dinner. They were very mindful of my dietary restrictions
Excellent experience. The grouper was presented in appealing fashion, cooked to the appropriate level and the wine suggestion was a wonderful compliment to the meal. The service was at the same high quality level as always. Topping it all off was entertaining music from a band of three people who clearly enjoyed the opportunity to share their talents.
Came here for Sunday Brunch. Service was spot on and the food was delicious. They had breakfast items, lunch items, and a omelette stand. Soft drinks/Juices were included but alcoholic beverages such as mimosa and bloody mary cost extra. Overall an extremely enjoyable experience.
Start to finish, one of the best meals and experiences in dining!
We had a special night with dancing. Small dance floor but live band. Great food, good service.
Absolutely LOVE the Hotel Roanoke and the Regency Room! Would recommend to anyone for any occasion!
Great spot for celebrating special days! The food was excellent as well as the presentation. Servers extremely polite and attentive.
Excellent night all around. We were first-time diners and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The manager, Alec Carlson, even prepared our bananas foster table-side and was extremely professional, answering every question we had and making sure we were taken care of. Such a knowledgeable person! Will definitely be returning.
We went for a breakfast buffet and it was terrific. For the food, environment, service and experience well worth the bill for the two of us. I’d highly recommend it if in Roanoke. Make reservations glad we did - it was packed
One vegetarian option on menu which presented a problem for a very high priority business guest
This restaurant was perfect for a girls day! The food was delicious and they were really accommodating for our group of 12.
Lovely breakfast with good friends. The food was wonderfully displayed and delicious. But, the very BEST part of the experience was Bobby, our waiter. His attention to detail, our needs and his friendly manner made our experience perfect!
The service, food and atmosphere was great. I will definitely be returning and will consider The Regency Room when I have out of town guests. The area has a lot to offer so the visit may be part of a day trip!
Excellent dining experience with probably the best service we've received anywhere. Our waiter, Josh, helped make it a special evening. We will dine here again.
Good food with a pleasant ambiance.
Food and service was excellent. There was also a small jazz combo playing nice dinner music without being too loud or overwhelming. So nice to dine with crisp linens, candlelight, and atmosphere!
Much more impressed than times past. Service was great but seemed...a little over the top and dramatic. While fine dining is a show, it need not be a servile or dramatic one. First course was great, main course with steak was ok. Plates should have been warmed to maintain integrity of food. Half was warm, one side was room temperature at best, and steak was cold after second piece. Dessert was great as was wine presentations for both bottles. We will be back, but please take note RR, these are critiques.
As expectable, well prepared cocktails and standard upscale hotel fare. Wine list could use some depth.
This was the Roanoke Hotel Regency Room Sunday Grand Buffet, offered weekly.
Omelettes, breakfast sides and the dessert offerings were good as usual. Hot dishes were somewhat disappointing. Service and ambiance top notch! Good value for money spent.
Everything was very good. I will definitely visit again
We were very impressed with the service upon entering the restaurant. The soup and salad were excellent. Many of the main entrees were either cold or less than expected for taste and preparation We did arrive at 11:30. The lamb was very dry. The spoon bread which they are noted for, was cold. The desserts were excellent. Our waitress was outstanding as well as ALL the servers at the stations. Overall, a pleasant experience-nice ambiance.
Very poor service. Had a reservation but they refused to seat us because it was made online.
Excellent food and service. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made us feel very special.
The staff made our "special occasion" absolutely perfect. A quiet, private table was requested and we were prepared a very special table. It was just absolutely perfect and the staff was so very thoughtful and accommodating. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This is a lovel gracious dining scene. The atmosphere is very tasteful and the lunch buffet was delicious as well as gorgeous to look at. The desserts were holiday themed and very festive. It was a wonderful spot to cap off our week of family time. Service was impeccable. Loved everything about it!
I love this hotel and I've always dined in the casual part. However, the Regency Room was a great surprise. The food was great, the service was great and we really enjoyed our visit even with a 6 month old. They gave us some gravy to dip his pacifier in and he was thrilled and we had an extraordinary meal. Our Waitress was wonderful as well.
Fabulous, we love the hotel and the Regency is a great "date night" special
place to go. We love everything about the hotel! One of the best restaurants
we've eaten especially for Roanoke where we're from.
My score is based on my last experience. I was disappointed in the meal. It was Christmas eve and this was supposed to be a special occasion. The hot food was very disappointing. The hot egetable selection was minimal in my opinion. None of these were better than average. The meats were fair as well. The cold salad bar was good (best part of buffet) and the dessert bar again was just fine. For the price, this was extremely disappointing to have average food and disappointing food. The server handed us the bill and apologized for the service not being her normal standard. It had been lacking, but was not terrible and she was busy. The problem was when I reviewed the bill there was a 20 percent service fee. This really was an insult. I have had good meals here, but this was not.
Restaurant was not that busy, but appeared short staffed. Took 10 mins to greet us, 5 more minuets to get a drink. That was pretty much the pace, slow. When our food came, mine was perfect, husbands was cold. We just wanted a nice meal for my birthday. If you are expected to pay top dollar then you should have the equivalent experience.
