My friend and I stopped in there to have dinner and some drinks. After a review of the menu, nothing was overly appealing considering the price tag attached. We decided to eat elsewhere but did have a cocktail which was amazing - highly recommend The Ginger! I do hear the restaurant is quite crowded on weekends.

Second time I have eaten here. Been disappointed both times. However, everyone else at my table said their food was good!

Local Roots is my top choice when dining with out of town guests. They are usually surprised to learn that Roanoke has such a good dining option. The food is always perfect and the service is great. The last few time I have gone Linda was our server and she is very passionate and knowledgeable about the menu. Food is... More

We ate here twice while shopping for a home in Roanoke. The food and service are quite good. Very good place for those who like healthy options featuring local ingredients. I took give it four of five instead of five for the pricing. It's a little steep for what you get but probably not enough to prevent me from returning.... More

Our party was disappointed with our recent Sunday Supper meal. We tried one of everything on the menu that evening and, besides the nice desserts, it all missed the mark for us. The salad, main and sides were only $20 per person, but we agreed it was still not a good value due to the lack of interest or flavor.... More

First of all, had a great waiter! That always helps! He helped us with choices and all were good. Tried a couple of the salads, the bass, mussels and the burger and all were delicious. Drinks were good and bread pudding was the best ever! The ambiance is great and everyone is so nice. We had a most enjoyable time!

Such a great experience here! The owner greeted us at the door with a lovely introduction & took several minutes to speak with us. We had the Sunday Supper which was delicious! The food was very fresh & healthy with perfect portion sizes. *overheard that children 5 and under eat free! We arrived for an early dinner around 5:00pm and... More

The food is locally sourced, the dishes are imaginative and delicious. And the atmosphere and service make it hard to leave. Perfect for dinner with friends, brunch with the girls, or a nice romantic dinner for two.
