“Nouveau American”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Great restaurant in Roanoke. The same owners as Table 50.

American menu with a local theme. Good selection of appetizers, salads and main. I had the Hunters Grill which is a chicken sausage, pork belly and duck confit dish served with mashed potatoes and veggies. All very great, except for the mashed potatoes which tasted like something coming out of box - where was the butter?

Great staff, friendly and knowledgeable.
I will be back for more.

Enjoyed a delicious Easter brunch with family! My absolute favorite dishes were sausage gravy and homemade muffins, shrimp and grits and chocolate cake!!! The brunch included a bloodie mary bar; service was good and the setting is very comfortable!!! Look forward to returning :)

“Good food great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I went to First & Sixth for the first time with a big group. The service was great and the food was good. Portions on the smaller side, but what you would expect from an upscale place. I enjoyed going upstairs to the lounge which is the former lobby of the historic Patrick Henry Hotel. This is a great place for a romantic occasion it's on the quiet side. I would go back again!

“Best Restaurant in Roanoke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

My date, a French foodie, and I went on a Tuesday night and practically had the place to ourselves. No complaints. Food and service were excellent! Great atmosphere - formal, elegant, comfortable - I felt like I could have been in any city in the world. Good selection of local beers on tap. The menu offers plenty of options but is not overwhelming. Wine and drink menu is separate. For some reason, so is the dessert menu.

“Patrick Henry would be proud!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This restaurant is located in the former Patrick Henry hotel. Patrick Henry was both the first and the sixth post-Colonial governor of Virginia - hence the restaurant's name. The dinner menu offers a wide variety of entrees. I had the blackened catfish and it was delicious. One of my dinner companions asked to make a substitution for one of her sides and she was gladly accommodated. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. I look forward to a return visit.
