Met friends here in town from NC. First of us and them. Great choice.The salmon dinner was awesome. I also sampled the blackened chicken pasta, and crab cakes. They both were delicious. Decor was pleasing with lots of windows, they even have a veranda setting. The service was great. (Although when I pay, I would prefer they not ask if... More

Had a great time catching up with friends I haven't seen in a long time over dinner, Nd I'm so glad we decided on Blue 5. The restaurant had been one of my favorites when I lived in Roanoke six years ago. The food is maybe even better than I remembered. I had the Maple burger with Mac and cheese... More

Good food and attentive staff in an interesting building in downtown Roanoke. Great selection of craft beers and you can order 4 samples in 4 oz glasses. The beers are very well presented with each beer identified which is a nice touch. We were there on a Monday evening and the place was pretty quiet. Our server was professional but... More

Worst restaurant experience I've ever had, and I'm rarely one to complain. For one, my wife and I couldn't get seated in a reasonable amount of time, despite multiple 2-4 person tables being open the entire time we were in the establishment (2+ hours). Literally, at least 3 two-person tables were open consistently, but we weren't permitted to sit in... More

On February 11th a party of thirteen had dinner at Blue 5 in Roanoke, Virginia. The service was terrific with just one waitress. The food took forever to arrive. The French fries were cold. The pesto chicken sandwich and the Marconi pie were delicious. The mashed potatoes were decent. The radio music was way too loud to be able to... More

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Helped guide with decisions and might add dead on. Chef has a great sense of pairing with unique delicious twists.
