The Regency Room - The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center Ratings and Reviews
Loved Sunday Brunch! Great assortment of breakfast and lunch foods. Everything was delicious but especially loved the carving station, smoked salmon, bread pudding, and peanut butter pie. Our waiter was very attentive and we also enjoyed the live piano music.
The Regency Room dining experience was absolutely superb! The entrees were fresh, cooked to perfection by their renowned Chef and service was top in its class. Lowell our host should be hold the title of Vice Director of Dining Events and Drew our server should be Chief of Dining Affairs. Their attention to details and dedication to hospitality and service are the example of five star plus dining. Don't mistake the Regency Room for hotel dining because its not. It sits in a class of its own and is a part of this Hilton's history dating back to 1882. The Chef entrees were amazing and having live music that plays jazzy, moody tunes makes your dining event memorable and enjoyable. Thanks to the Hilton management and staff for taking dining and hospitality to a whole new level. We see enough of the mundane service at 9 out of 10 restaurants.
Best Roanoke has to offer. Food could generally be slightly fresher. Omelette station good, as is roast beef. Full variety of breakfast and lunch items. Nice piano music (live) in background. Sunday brunch is special in Regency Room, and hotel is steeped in tradition. Recommended but not 5 star cuisine although good.
The Chefs prepared a melangé of many beautifully composed dishes rich in soulful heritage of the Roanoke Valley. The food reminded me of both Mr. John Divers and Mr.Willard Walkers (N&W Chefs and grandfather's) The many traditional and trendy dishes were also executed to perfection. Our service was exceptional and our attendant had perfect timing and anticipated the entire parties every want and desire. I am so elated to see the integrity and elegance of THR preserved.
Thank you sincerely, K.Welcher
Just the best buffet anywhere. If you are in Roanoke, or driving down I-81 or somewhere near there, take a trip to Hotel Roanoke and the Regency Room. Sunday brunch is the best, but the regular menu is very nice as well. Husband loves the peanut soup - I love the variety of veggie entrees and sides (incredible white beans, spinach, and sun-dried tomato casserole thing yesterday - YUM!), creative salads, and the great desserts, including wonderful bread pudding, but not, this time, anything chocolate. Only thing missing. Service at the table is delightful and the rooms are large enough and carpeted so that the sound level is relatively low. You gotta try it! It is such a wonderful meal.
Went for Saturday breakfast buffet, was great. Sunday Brunch was absolutely not worth the Money. We Went years ago and it was great. It's really cheapie now . Selections were few, breads not fresh, 1 carved beef, 3 Salmon dishes, and chicken breast. A few salads, cold waffles, and dried out desserts. This was very disappointing and will not do the Sunday Brunch ever again!
Just another date night for a couple locals. We enjoy the Regency Room for the elegance, level of service, and quality of food. This time we enjoyed Chef Lloyd's special dinner and, as always, Earl treats us like royalty. Dogwood Club membership is worth having. We've already made our next reservation.
Watching a couple complain and sending their food back twice because it wasn't prepared correctly left me feeling underwhelmed to complain myself. The service took FOREVER -- more focus on 2 larger parties in the room and not on couples or single patrons at tables. When our food did finally arrive it was not cooked to the correct temperature - and wasn't even hot -- like it had been sitting for 20 minutes (which seemed about right). Won't be back.
The address listed on Open Table -- 110 Shenandoah Ave NE -- does not get you where you need to go either.
I typically shy away from big hotel dining rooms because the food is more often "institutional" in preparation and flavor, so I wasn't expecting great things from our visit. The location is so tranquil, the decor so quietly tasteful and the staff, Theresa, so pleasant, that if the food had been as expected, I'd have been ok. It was Sunday evening. Just wanted something without drama.
Then the food began to arrive, timely. A marvelous Caesar salad, followed by a petit filet with a magnificent mushroom sauce that was so flavorful I was astonished. Note: they let me swap the setup for the larger filet to the smaller one. And, although I made the reservation at the last minute, when they learned we had been celebrating my mother's 91st birthday all weekend, Theresa quickly crafted a special dessert tribute to the occasion. It was all grand. And, so lovely, thoughtful, unexpected and memorable. Thank you, Theresa and Hotel Roanoke.
This restaurant never fails to provide a fantastic culinary experience. The service is top notch. The mango martini is a pleasant way to start the meal with an aroma that speaks to the truly refreshing taste. The filet mignon is melt-in-your -mouth delicious. The peanut and she-crab soup are both must haves. The live light jazz is always tasteful, and the host makes sure each guest has everything they need.
I love the coziness of the Virginia Room. It offered privacy without isolation. The overall experience was great! Excellent hostess, wait staff and food. My favorite part of the lunch buffet was the cheesecake. It is by far the best cheesecake I've ever tasted.
Sunday Brunch--no one at Regency Room front desk to greet us.
Waitress never gave us an overview of the selections and the outdoor grill which was duck we were not told about. When silverware taken away with plates no more silverware was given to us for further courses.
Overall OK food and very poor service.
The staff welcomed us like old friends, and in fact, we are (or at least I am; it was my husband's first visit). They asked and I told them my first visit was 70 years ago, when I was 6. I have been back several times since, including a two-night stay when the VA state Beta Club (high school honor society) had a conference there in the 1950s. I also came for a ladies' lunch in the 1990s when the dining room was part of the VA Tech catering training. So the Regency Room was my first experience in fine dining and continues to be a favorite. Saturday night it exceeded expectations. Delightful waiter, excellent wine, and lovely classic renditions by a jazz trio. I ordered fish when I was 6, and again, seafood was my choice and trout my husband's -- all good. The dessert (off menu--suggested by our waiter) was exceptional. I wish I could remember the name-- an amazing pastry with poached pear, ice cream, and champagne sauce. Perfect combination. Our compliments to the chefs and entire staff.
Very disappointed- I called regency room and was told fathers day buffet went to 3pm. I booked 145pm on open table. When we arrived on Sunday I was told buffet ended at 2. At 2 the piano music stopped.By 215 they were taking food away. Deserts were gone by 225 and we had to ask for bread pudding.
Service was mediocre. We felt rushed in buffet line.
Very disappointed. We consider the regency room a treat. This was not.
We could have easily made reservations for noon had we known. Despite the above, we payed full price for buffet X4 people.
Not the usual regency room experience.
I treated my Dad to Brunch Father's day morning and it was our first experience eating at Hotel Roanoke. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and helpful and it overall surpassed our expectations. The only thing I would recommend is a dress code. For the price you pay and to be in the main dining area there should definitely be a dress code.
My wife and I visited Roanoke for the first time over Fathers Day weekend 2017. After reading a number of reviews, I chose the Regency Room based on those reviews and our innkeeper's recommendation. The Hotel Roanoke has been around for a long time, but it didn't seem dated. The valet staff was helpful--interestingly, the valet who helped us was from our former hometown in California (Walnut Creek) and his brother attended the same high school that our two kids did. The restaurant staff was pleasant, engaging and courteous. Our waiter, Earle, was attentive without being overbearing and provided good service. The food was very good. I enjoyed the peanut soup, which I had never tasted before anywhere. My wife had the filet mignon, a sizable portion with two filets on a skewer. I had the hanger steak which was also a larger portion than I'd anticipated. The meat was prepared as we had requested and tasted great. I had the parsley potatoes, which were just ok. I thought they could use more herbs for more flavor. The wine selection (from CA, OR and WA) was better than I had expected, although the I thought the markup on some of the bottles was rather high. The highlight of the evening for us was the jazz trio that played for most of the time we were there. Lots of standards, but the well-done live music added a lot to the already-goo dining experience. We enjoyed our evening at the Regency Room.
The Regency Room is a pleasant venue for a quiet, enjoyable, and comfortable dining experience. The American Standards presented by a capable trio provided the perfect ambiance for a wonderful evening. She crab bisque, tenderloin, and trout topped off with a special desert were perfectly prepared and presented in a relaxed manner. We are glad to have The Hotel Roanoke and The Regency Room in our neighborhood!
Our sixth time and the worst of the six. Service was good, as always (nice job, Teresa), but the food was disappointing. We tried the wine pairing dinner and the salad was nothing special. Greens and berries. The two 3 oz filets were cooked properly but quite bland as was the crab crusted turbot. These dishes should have had some zing! The coconut cake with ganache was also pretty boring. We'll have to decide if we dine here when we come back in the fall. This is the first time that I'd say I'm not sure we will....
Wow!!! Eat there every time we are in Roanoke. Lived up to our memories of it. Excellent service and food. Split shared soup and salad for us, before we had our entrees. Southern American specialities. Friday and Saturday nights they have a 3-piece instrumental band which just adds to the experience. Nice dress up place, but we were traveling and in jeans and they still made us feel at home.
