My husband and I dined at The Bank this evening, based upon the recommendation of the owners of the B&B where we are staying. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, who was genuine and down-to-earth. A generous pour for the drinks and excellent house-made focaccia were a pleasant start to our meal. I had an arugula salad with blueberries,... More

Mark, We appreciate your comments and your recent visit and regret that you didn't enjoy your entire meal. Your comments to the server were positive so your review was a little surprising. Just a few necessary clarifications-we do not pan fry our steaks or lamb chops! Steaks are cooked with a direct flame. We also are not a take out... More

This friendly, upscale local restaurant was recommended by others at our BnB and was a great choice! The good experience began with our hostess, who greeted us like she was hoping we'd come there, and then our server who was friendly and attentive. Because the hostess learned we were new to the area, she later brought local tourism info right... More

We stopped by the Bank on a whim looking for an upscale dessert. Unfortunately, they had just locked the door....but the hostess appeared and made special arrangements to seat us. She was gracious, thoughtful and well versed on the menus as well as history of the property which was fascinating. She checked with the chef to ensure our options and... More

Once again this past weekend we were in Pearisburg Virginia and without hesitation, made our repeated visit to The Bank Food and Drink. Having dined there thru more than one chef, it not only met, but far exceeded our expectations. Both my husband and I started out with Chef Mike's twist on a Mojito - very refreshing and enjoyable and... More

I must say this was the WORST experience I have ever had in a restaurant. The ONLY thing good was our server and that was it. We were sit in the "vault" room and they also seated 7 loud drinking men in there also. The talking with my wife was impossible! The food was awful! We both had steak and... More

Jim, I did send you a personal note, apologizing for your unforgetable evening with us. The group of corporate guys should have been seated in another private dining room and we have spoken with the hostess about not seating groups with couples, especially in the Gallery-which is the correct name for the room your were seated in. When both the... More

The service was wonderful! The Bank is unexpected for the area. The food is gourmet and all of the options are clearly well planned out. We had the lamb t-bones, bacon wrapped filet, argula salad, and pretzel chocolate cheesecake. I would order them all again.
