Wonderful atmosphere, food was not fantastic and not worth the price, never got my steak sauce and waiter didn't come back by until I was on my last bite. I would recommend my friends and relatives not dine at the regency room.
The presentation, taste of the food and ...
The presentation, taste of the food and the dinning ambiance experience is great! I loved the live band playing soft music too. Service is very attentive as well. The ice cream dessert is too small of ice cream scoops and not worth the value.. The ice cream scoops are more of a dollop size and not a real ice cream scoop, so this was disappointing to our table. I would not recommend the ice cream for dessert. The Host of the Regency room is one of the happiest host with the most. In between servers and other servers the host checked on us many times and fills the water and attends to tables. I recommend The Regency room for special occasions. I do wish there was more of a dress code. For dinner, me and my guest all dressed in jackets and ties and or suits. The Regency room is elegant in style ,but many people just show up in jeans and casual shirts, which is not very appropriate in my taste for the Regency Room. Seems there should be a dress code that reflects the elegant of the dinning experience.

We ate dinner at the Hotel Roanoke in celebration of our wedding anniversary. We had a marvelous dining experience: superb, delectable food, excellent service, romantic atmosphere, and supreme friendliness and attention to detail. We have eaten here before and will most definitely return!

The Regency Room was recommended to me by several friends who had been there before and, since I was in Roanoke on business, I decided to try it. The recommended peanut soup was a real treat and I wish I had ordered an entire serving rather than the taster. The Caesar salad was huge: even had it been good I would never have been able to finish it and still have room for the entrée. I ordered the tenderloin medallions and they were delicious, cooked to perfection. Despite being full I finished both of them, leaving only a few of the roasted potato side. Did not have room for desert although it all sounded yummy. Best part of the meal was the service and the COFFEE! I have had coffee all over the world and this was the best I have ever tasted. Next time I will plan to stay at the Hotel Roanoke just so I can have a cup served to me in the morning. It's the little things...

What a great evening. This hotel and restaurant has great history, awesome service and wonderful food. From the moment we walked in -- feeling under dressed for such an elegant dining room -- we were made to feel more than welcome. Our waiter was great -- friendly, informative and attentive. The food was fantastic -- tenderloin for me and snapper for my daughter. But the treat of the evening was the crab cake on the side our waiter advised us to add. I've had a lot of crab cakes living in the mid Atlantic... and this one takes the cake (pun intended). If you are in Roanoke, don't miss the Regency Room.

The Hotel Roanoke has been a favorite spot for many years to celebrate special occasions. Last year I was able to take my mother, aunt and cousin for lunch in the Regency Room. They are all from out of town and loved every minute of our time there along with the excellent service and delicious food. They left feeling like royalty! My sister was in town and I wanted to treat her to a special Birthday Lunch. We arrived and from the first moment . . . again treated like royalty. The food was amazing! The service was exceptional. Debbie was our waitress and treated us with kindness and her laughter and great smile makes her personality stand out! The variety of food on the buffet was divided to where we each had some of our favorite things. It was a special day and now locked into our memory. As always, Thank you for a wonderful experience!

We've been to the Hotel Roanoke a number of times and always enjoy the occasion. The food is excellent, the waitstaff attentive and the talented musicians, who play on Friday and Saturday evenings, are wonderful. This is the premier spot in Roanoke for a dining experience in a setting that takes you back to a more sumptious time. We will go back again.

I had attended a luncheon during the spring and really enjoyed the food; price was not so bad at $16 per person. It was worth it because the food was good. Because of this experience, I suggested that my husband and I go to Sunday brunch. We both got the buffet and it cost us $75 total for the meal. The food was just so-so; nothing like it was the last time. It is way over-rated for the outrageous price.
We will not recommended Sunday brunch and due to the " just okay food," we will not go back.

The Crab cakes are WONDERFUL!! Drew was our server, he was great. Awesome personality and very knowledgeable about the history of the hotel. I have had much better filets. It came out cold but Drew returned it and it came back warm. Ok, but still tuff. The band was a lot of fun during the Banana fosters. We will definitely be back. We were celebrating our 36th anniversary. Thanks to Drew for making our night so much fun! 😚

How wonderful that restaurants like the Regency Dining Room still exist! As soon as you set foot inside this restaurant, you feel like you have just stepped back in time to the days when dining was still a classy affair. This is not an everyday restaurant, but a gem to be enjoyed as a treat. The food was wonderful (if you have never tried peanut soup, this is the place to do so), the service was great and the live music (a jazz trio while we dined here) rounded up this wonderful dining experience - what a find, if we return to Roanoke, we will return to the Regency Dining Room!

We were staying at the hotel, so we dined in the restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise! The dinning room is warm and lovely. Our server Courtney was darling and very helpful on the regional choices! I started with the Fried Green Tomatoes, which were outstanding!! My husband had the Caesar salad, which could have been a meal in itself!! Our entrees were the shrimp and scallop dish...delicious! and the crab cake...a must have! best meal we had on our 3 day trip!!

Colin Lloyd, the new Regency Room chef, has set up a special Dogwood Club four-course tasting menu. We decided to try it out and were not disappointed. As usual at the Regency Room both the food and service were outstanding. I'm looking forward to seeing what November brings.

Dinner was fabulous! Our waiter, Earle, was just wonderful! Please ask for him when you go! He was entertaining, funny, thoughtful, and very prompt!
The dinner music was wonderful with a trio playing soft music.
Menu was diverse, a little pricey, but delicious!

I booked this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary...and it did not disappoint us. While it was pouring rain outside, our food was outstanding including the gluten free dishes that my wife ordered. We were surprised by the many gluten free entrees, desserts, etc. offered. Our server was cordial and friendly yet very knowledgeable and professional. Being here for the first time, we had a number of menu questions. They have a lengthy wine list but we chose some great cocktail offerings instead. We also did not feel rushed during the whole dinner. Food was served well prepared (presented), hot, and timely and the Server anticipated our needs well. Dessert and coffee were great too. Yes, it is a bit more expensive...but well worth it for a special occasion, for a special person. We will be back.

We visit this restaurant about once a year when we are in Roanoke. The food and service are always good. This year, our server was excellent - very attentive and informative. My wife ordered the Caesar Salad and the Crabcake. I ordered the Regency Garden Salad and the Carolina Snapper. All of the food was very tasty and nicely prepared. We ordered an excellent Alsatian Riesling at a very reasonable price. This restaurant is surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant in a small city. If you haven't tried it, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

Having been to the Regency Room many times before, I was looking forward to brunch with my family. Boy was I disappointed. The food was dry and bland or soggy from the steam table. There was very little for the children in our party. We were seated at a table with glasses of water already poured. One of the glasses was half full and had lipstick stains on it. When I told the waitress she made a joke and brought another. That one also had lipstick on it, which the waitress replied to with, " our dishwasher just can't get some of this new lipstick off". The price for 9 people was right at $250.00. Unbelievable for what we were served. Especially since the quality was poor. In addition, a 20 percent gratuity was automatically added. I understand a mandatory gratuity with a large party, but 20 percent when all you had to do was serve drinks and take away a few dishes was a bit much! Not to mention that I was still hungry when I left. I will not return and I will not recommend this place to anyone.

very nice meal food could be a little bit hot. But overall my mom and I enjoyed the meal and the service was the best. Love to bring my husband for our 38th anniversary. which is coming up next month. I would tell all family and friends it is a very nice place to eat a nice meal

Very clean. It was quite because two other tables had people at them. Waiter very nice and explained everything to us. The price was VERY high I feel but the food was great. I was warned about the price so not to much of a shock. Has a parking lot but had to pay for that also. For price of dinner for 4 parking should of Ben paid for.

Went for the Sunday brunch & was glad to see that the HR's tradition of serving an outstanding array of brunch options has been maintained. There are many selections available to satisfy almost anyone's brunch preferences; and there are no limits on refills of anything on the menu. Though you go to various food stations to select your items, the service is outstanding as the staff serves drinks and clears your plates as you move through the courses. The piano soloist helps set an elegant mood. The meal may be a bit pricey for some ($27), but is still a great value for the quality & quantity of what is available. Highly recommended (and be sure to try the bread pudding with bourbon sauce).

The Regency Room is a wonderful place for a large group or for an intimate dinner. The chef has taken great care in the menu selections. Everyone in our large group was very pleased with their meal. Timing was impeccable and our server was very attentive.

Stayed at the hotel over the weekend and took advantage of their amazing brunch on Sunday. Service was great, food was great. And our waitress was incredibly friendly and on top of everything (I think her name was Debbie? but may be mistaken - she was from Bassett VA).

Great for elegance , my first priority for this event. Had hoped for more "dinner" entrees but failed to ask.
For sake of handicapped with mobile devices, some indicators of direction from conference entrance entrance would be helpful. A staff member "happened by" and immediately conducted us to Regency Room graciously.
