Luxurious finishes, copper accents, and warm lighting were inspired by the fire of the rotisserie & brick oven at the display kitchen.
Masculine lines are tailored to contrast with subtle historical references, some original to the 1913 building, for visual interest.
Roanoke offers various seating options for every occasion. Sit at the counter along the display kitchen for an interesting culinary experience,
cozy up to the warm, inviting bar, and finally have a seat near the fireplace for more intimate dining. Roanoke is a great place to gather
​with friends and colleagues. We have great event space to accommodate your groups of 2 to 150.

    Cindy was amazing with us, as we had dinner before a play last night. My burger was delicious. Fries were super crispy as I like them. 🙂 The French Alexander was a refreshing drink, and the bread pudding was tasty. It was my second visit to Roanoke, and I plan to return.

    Everything about this experience was good or better. The only drawback was the noise level was a bit over the top. I get it, I'm an old guy and the crowd was mostly younger, after work people unwinding. This would not deter me from returning in the future or recommending this to others.

    Disappointed that considering the prices of the entrees no bread was served. There also was a $15.00 charge described as "Open Food." I have no idea what that was for. I might recommend Roanoke for lunch but not sure I would for dinner.

    BEWARE using Roanoke's parking validation offer. The $10 parking validation for lunch did not work. The hostess gave me a validation but the parking garage would not honor it so I ended up paying $45 for parking. I would have used Spothero had I known that the validation would not work. When I returned to the restaurant, a manager said that they did not have lunch parking. She could not explain why the restaurant gave me a validation. When I pointed out that the lunch parking validation was listed on OpenTable, she said that this was a problem with OpenTable and that they would call OpenTable, but that it was not Roanoke's responsibility. She said I could return to see what OpenTable says but they did not offer to reimburse me. I was disappointed that they would not take responsibility for their error. I thought I was doing them a favor by alerting them to update their information. Other than that, food and drink is good as always, and they do a great lunchtime business.

    Loved the environment and the ambience. The service was great! From our waitress to the manager, who helped us with a gift card issue. Unfortunately, the food was not as stellar. The steak Frites meat was about 50% fat, and my halibut special was pretty tasteless. For the price, that was disappointing.

    Arrived a little after 6p NYE with 545p reservations (accident on i90). Given the pre 6p price thanks to Fabian (?) the manager. Server forgot my beer but manager comped it. Apps & entrees came at the same time which felt a little rushed but whatever, it happens & we weren't rushed at all. Any little thing wrong the manager fixed it. Just for that i may return but the food was 🔥 DELICIOUS too!!! Thank you so much, we had a great NYE '22 dinner. Great way to finish the year. Highly recommend 10/10

    Very hard to get waiter’s attention and he did not return to us promptly between courses of our prix fixe NYE meal- that being said it was a LOT of food for the price. Steak was undercooked for both of us.

    Our party of 6 had a lunch reservation before seeing 'The Lion King.' We were not informed by OpenTable or the restaurant that a party of 6 is automatically stuck with an 18% gratuity. Well, our waiter certainly knew. WORST service I've ever had at a restaurant in the theater district -- and we're season ticket holders, so we are there frequently. My Hubby's over-easy eggs had rock-solid yolks, and the fries with my French dip were colder than room temp. Rest of the food was mediocre -- we would have complained, but our waiter never bothered to return. I initially tried to get reservations elsewhere but, 4 days before the show, this was the only place in walking distance with availability. That alone is a red flag!!!

    The service was great. We started with the cheddar biscuits and the cheese curds. We enjoyed both, but the biscuits were a little salty. We enjoyed the skinny jeans cocktail (excellent) and red wine. Our entrees were the scallops, which were cooked to perfection, but the risotto lacked flavor, and the campanelle was very good. We finished with the Apple cobbler and a couple of espresso martinis ( non cinnamon was better).

We like to know what we are getting beforehand and Nick perfectly layer it out for us. Would recommend going again. But make sure to go in an empty stomach. This place fills you up!!

    Instead of being seated downstairs where it is more cozy and festive we were sent to an upstairs banquet hall. Had we known that would be the case we would have gone elsewhere. Asked nicely if we could move to one of the several empty tables downstairs and that request was declined. Said those were for specific groups but when we came downstairs to leave those tables were empty. Service was slow and server wasn't very attentive, spilled appetizer on one of my colleagues but didn't comp the menu item, just replaced it when we were near the end of our meal after they cleared our plates - and didn't provide additional plates. I have sympathy for the busy staff and accidents happen. But how everything was handled wasn't great and I don't think I'd go back

    We were sat “upstairs” which was actually in an adjoining hotel. The entire ambiance of the restaurant was gone as we passed by the breakfast buffet and were surrounded by tvs. There was no place to check in upstairs and the staff did not know we had a reserve ration from downstairs. There were 2 servers for the entire room which was made up of several large groups. We waited 30 min for drinks and some were forgotten and an hour for our food. Just a disaster for a group of people.
