The Regency Room - The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center Ratings and Reviews
We have celebrated Valentine's at the Hotel Roanoke the past two years and plan on continuing our tradition. Dinner and dancing in the Regency Room is divine. The service is impeccable, the food delicious, and the atmosphere perfect for a special evening. The three piece band and dance floor make for a most elegant experience. Don't wait for a holiday...if we lived in Roanoke this would be a monthly date night!
Our entire dining experience was awesome! I would rate the food among the very best I have ever eaten! Earle was our server and he was very attentive and took excellent care of us. Lowell, the host, made us feel so welcome from the moment we walked in. He made several trips to our table just to chat with us. He has the perfect personality for his job! We would highly recommended this restaurant to anyone. Perfect choice of a place to spend our 1st wedding anniversary!
We were celebrating my husbands birthday. We have been celebrating here for several years . Wow , what an amazing experience and exquisite food ! Just when you thought that they could not possibly be any better The Regency Room steps it up another notch . The whole entire staff made our evening perfect. If you want a complete dinings experience and not just a good meal , this is the place to go . The best in Roanoke !!!
The food is predictable and not really' Southern' fare as advertised. Go for the impeccable service and great people watching. The desserts were especially disappointing,tasting like things one buy from a big box food club store. Entrees choices were fine,but again predictable. I went for the New Year day brunch, to start the year with a bang. Didn't happen, it was more of a quite 'Harrumph '.
We may have gone in expecting to much, the hotel is beautiful, the Christmas decorations were gorgeous, the food was generic. The She Crap soup was very good!, my Bloody Mary was terrible...for the prices they charge it would have been nice to say "wow" at least once....
We go annually to see the show of trees. We love the food and atmosphere; however, this time we were seated at 10:15, and the food was removed from the buffet at 10:35. If the last seating for breakfast is 10:30, the food should be available for 1/2 hour, in my opinion.
The Host made us uncomfortable for arriving 30 minutes early with a comment. Many empty tables. Waitress was nice but to no fault of hers, service was slow. Food was good but flow of drinks, salad, dinner and even longer wait for dessert. Food was very good but disappointed in service
My sisters and I went for a pre-Christmas brunch, hoping to start a new tradition. It was magical and an event to treasure with family. Afterwards, we saw the trees. Just a beautiful and meaningful way to start the Christmas holiday weekend. There's nothing like the Grand Lady herself!
It has been a few years since my wife and I dined at the Regency Room. Very please with the overall experience. I had the trout and she had two small plates. Both were presented very nicely and tasted accordingly. We will certainly return.
Only thing we missed was the live band and dance floor they used to have.
Went for a special Christmas luncheon. They were obviously overbooked, because tables (ours) had been added right inside the doors to the restaurant. At first I wasn't happy about it, but soon realized that it got us away from a lot of the noise and we weren't sitting on top of people. The food was delicious, especially the peanut soup and our waitress was very attentive.
The Regency Room is a grand venue for a special occasion dinner. The fried green tomato appetizer was a favorite among our group as was the she-crab soup. Favorite entrees were the trout and a truly superb crab cake. All menu items we ordered were excellent; our only complaint was the food could have been a little warmer when served. Our waiter was excellent, and the dining room was quite busy, so we assumed the kitchen could have used more staff to get the food out in a more timely manner. We will definitely be returning for dinner!
The buffet has a good combination of traditional fare and unique items. The asparagus eggrolls were a surprising hit with our group. Peanut soup always good here. Tables are arranged close together, so be aware if anyone needs room to maneuver. We enjoy holiday meals here because you can walk the lobby and conference areas to see a variety of decorated trees on display. Plan on roughly $30 per head after a reasonably good tip.
Our party of six had a 10:00 reservation. We checked in with the hostess about 10 til 10:00. We were we would be called when our table was ready. After waiting until almost 10:30 we again checked in with the hostess. She said our table was ready and we were seated. This left only a half an hour to eat and talk. By 11:00, the food was being put away and the dining area was being vacated for the brunch. We were disappointed for being shorted on our time at the restaurant for eating and talking.
Our Anthem SG sales department enjoys lunch at the Hotel Roanoke as a tradition for many years at Christmas and then we go and look at all the Christmas Trees. We love it? We also look forward to it every year. This year the food was not particularly as tasty as in years past. There were not as many meat options that were tasty. The salad options were limited and the desserts were not as tasty and appetizing. The she crab soup was however on point . We are hoping it was just a fluke and hope next year will be different.
The service from hostess to busboy was superior. This time of year the restaurant primarily has a buffet for lunch but you may order off the menu. The buffet is what you would expect from a five star historic hotel. Great salad and soup bars and the real teaser is the desert buffet set up before the twenty item or so main course buffet. It is truly a event to enjoy.
But the staff is equally as enjoyable. Wait staff is very nice and the busboys surreptitiously remove your finished dishes or politely ask if you are finished.
You do want to miss eating here. The very reasonable price makes it even more appealing.
The Regency Room at the Hotel Roanoke is one of my favorite places. The food and the service are both outstanding. Try the peanut soup, you will not be disappointed. Reserve an evening when the jazz trio is playing. This place is very comfortable, but sophisticated. It's sort of like visiting a good friend who can really cook!
We enjoyed it very much! The Shea crab soup is outstanding. Bread pudding and lemon cake was outstanding. Potstickers were outstanding. The receptionist was outstanding.
We are returning on Saturday December 24th at 11:30 and bringing our adult children this time.
Thank you for being there.
