The Regency Room - The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center Ratings and Reviews
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.
Lovely restaurant setting with a varied lunch menu. Salads and choices of sandwiches are good and the outside, patio seating offers views of downtown, beautiful flowers, and fun spot for people watching, liked it so much for lunch, also ate breakfast and dinner there, too. Highly recommend, excellent food and wine list.
After a delicious Easter Dinner and perfect anniversary dinner, Regency Room has quickly become worth the hour-long drive it takes us to get there. The menu is filled with fresh ingredients, imaginatively prepared, and is a treat from appetizers to the spectacular French Press coffee. Keep up the good work!
I selected this restaurant for our 49th wedding anniversary. After we were seated, it was about 20 minutes before our waitress came to our table. She informed us that she did not know that this was her table and apologized for the delay. She took our order and then we waited at least 45 minutes for our main entrée. The food was mediocre. In my opinion, it was not up to the Hotel Roanoke standards. We were very disappointed with our experience and will not be celebrating our 50th anniversary there.
Service was lacking. Waited a solid 7 minutes before we were greeted by our server. Food served felt as if it had been sitting for a bit before delivered. Drinks were watered down when served (clear perspiration all over the glasses, not much ice, and served 12 min after ordering). Our server was friendly, cannot remember her name but it was Saturday afternoon, day before Easter. Restaurant manager did not seem present but more focused on the menus. Not my worst experience, but not the experience I was looking for at The Regency Room.
The server did not bother to tell us when brunch was over so when we went to get omlettes from the omelette station it was already taken down. He also took at least a half an hour to bring our coffee The main course hot food entrees were not so hot. Almost cool. The peanut soup was completely dried up.
Had a great get together with family for Sunday Brunch. They offer a very good selection of breakfast items as well as lunch item on this fantastic buffet. It has stations spread throughout the Regency Room making for a good experience. There is no crowding at the serving stations and everything is high quality and continuously refilled with delicious options. The omlet station offers great options to build your omlet. Their sticky pecan rolls are warm and wonderful! They have gluten free offerings and they keep your coffee cup filled. We love this brunch and we will be back!
Our family ate there before taking my elderly dad to the airport and we are tied to Va Tech so its great that they now are part this. Roanoke is part of our family history so we love it and the selection of food was almost overwhelming. The service was impeccable (thanks to Crystal?) and the piano playing was enjoyed by all - even our college age girls! We will be back for the Sunday brunch for sure!!
The service provided by everyone at the Regency Room was exceptional. Friendly and professional, we felt very well taken care of. The ambiance was so nice, reminding us of fine dining rooms we've seen in movies with soft lighting, beautiful china, and a three piece band playing. Our meal was delicious and the creme brulee was a highlight.
