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.

This was our second visit to the Regency Room for the Sunday brunch and it won't be our last. We consider this the best hotel brunch we have ever visited! From the wide variety of delicious food to the impeccable service we can find no fault with the Roanoke Hotel.

The Regency Room is and will be a place of quiet elegance in the Roanoke valley. The entire evening was special, enhanced by the music provided by a talented trio. She crab soup, trout, lamb, and an unelievable dessert exceeded our expectation for a special evening. Thanks

My husband and I had Sunday brunch at the Hotel Roanoke's Regency Dining room and it was delicious. They had items that were "breakfast" and "lunch", so whatever you were in the mood for, they had on the buffet (waffles, eggs, omelets to order, mashed potatoes, a carving station, chicken salad, etc). Very good!
Horrible service. Unfortunately, we can' ...
Horrible service. Unfortunately, we can't give negative stars. This place should be a whole lot better.
This is a definite "Stay Away" if you are looking for a good dining experience. If you like mediocre food and horrible service then you picked the right place.
This place has taken a huge nose dive in the last 20 years.

Lovely room white table-clothed tables, and a table of eight that were so loud and boisterous I thought I was in a sports bar with people routing for their team. We went for a special dinner and dressed accordingly. Most of the other diners were in shorts and other very sporty clothes but, of course, you see that more and more often. The disturbing thing was the incredibly noisy table of 8 seated in the middle of the dining room. You couldn't even carry on a conversation. My husband spoke to the "host" and he apparently asked them to keep it down a little. Don't know why he needed complaints to realize how disturbing that table was. I did not enjoy my experience and did not even get an apology from the Regency management. Won't be eating there again. I definitely don't recommend it.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Roanoke. It is pricey, so we go only once or twice a year for a special date. The waitstaff are always knowledgeable and friendly. They never rush diners, yet are attentive and at the ready. They food is always perfect and the choices change seasonally so that there is always something new to try. Our table is always ready when we arrive and the host always greats us as if we were royalty. We are made to feel important and well-cared for when at the Regency Room. No place in this town offers better or more consistent food and service.

My sister, daughter and I are on a road trip vacation, and our first night is in Roanoke. I made a reservation at the Regency Dining Room weeks ago, expecting to have a great meal in a restaurant with elegant ambience. When we arrived, the host was staring at a piece of paper and said he would be with us in a few minutes. He finally looked up and took us to our table. There were two other tables occupied, and a total of 7 tables occupied. Four parties arrived after we did. It took more than 15 minutes for a glass of wine to arrive. My daughter ordered a virgin strawberry daiquiri which turned out to be strawberry juice and crushed ice. We asked the waitress for bread, and she said she would bring some but disappeared. After about 20 minutes,we asked another waiter for bread, and he brought the bread. We asked for more water and a waiter poured something into our glasses that made the water taste incredibly foul. My sister said, "How can you screw up water?" We watched the 4 parties who arrived more than 30 minutes after us as they were served an amuse bouche, and their first course, and second. Our waitress disappeared for an hour. I finally asked the host if he was the manager and told him we had been in the restaurant over an hour and had not received the amuse bouche or our dinner and that the water tasted terrible. He did not apologize but said "I understand, Ma'am" and disappeared. Ten minutes later a waiter brought new water glasses. After we had been seated 1 hour and 10 minutes, the manager brought our entrees. We never received the amuse bouche. The entrees were mediocre at best. I informed the manager we would not be paying for our meals. After he delivered them, we never saw the manager or any other server again for the 25 minutes we were in the restaurant. Finally, when we left, the valet asked how the dinner was, so we told him. He was the only person who apologized, and then he said, "Come back soon." We had a good laugh, but, will NEVER go back.

Everything was very good. My only criticism was the lack of enforcement of the dress code. I was told it was business casual. I dresses that way as did my guest. I wanted it to be a special dinner. The man next to us had on shorts, his shirttail was out and he had on shoes and no socks. The group one table over had on jeans and no socks. It certainly detracted from the quality of the evening.
