“Art and dinner”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This little place was recommended to us by a local vineyard owner we had visited. Natasha, the chef, creates some unique menu items and unique atmosphere. The restaurant is bright and clean and displays the artwork, especially ceramics, of local and national artists. I chose one the specials for the day, beef stroganoff. Natasha served it on a bed of couscous with some bits of vegetables instead of noodles. The sauce was rich and tangy which tender pieces of beef and large slices of mushrooms. Best stroganoff I have ever had. I noticed on the way into the restaurant a couple of pots growing herbs and wondered if Natasha used them in her dishes. It was reminiscent of restaurant in France I once visited where the chef came and snipped fresh herbs from pots growing near our outdoor table. My only complaint was that there was only one waitress and one hostess. Starting out, there weren't many people in the restaurant but we had to wait a bit to order dessert because the place soon filled up. The hostess was helping a lot but really, they needed another waiter/waitress. Of course, someone may have called in sick. In spite of that, the service was good.

“Nice meal”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had a nice meal at Natasha's during our trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway. We sat on the terrace on a lovely evening. Our waitress was very sweet. We had the salmon and trout. Definitely worth stopping for a meal. We walked there from the Hotel Floyd where we stayed.

“Excellent lunch at Natasha's”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at Natasha's. It was busy, but we got right in, and served promptly. The selection on the menu was great, with many specials. Great wine list. Our meals were excellent.

“Great food for those not in a hurry”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Stopped at Natasha's in Floyd for lunch with my better half. The cafe is well airy, well decorated, and contains a nice presentation of local art. The menu selection was refreshing and exciting. The food superb!. I had the Salmon salad and wife order the Vegetable Fritatta. We were both pleased with the meal. We had the homemade Key lime pie, which was fantastic!. Our only critical comment was that the service could be notched up some. We had to ask for drink refill and never received a check. After an extended wait, we walked up to the area where the register was and was able to make payment and leave. If it wasn't for the service, we would of rated this cafe a 5 star.

“A wonderful find”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

As we passed through on the Blue Ridge, we decided to make Floyd our stop for the night at the Ambrosia B&B (great stay). Dinner was a tad more difficult as a Tuesday in June means few options. Fortunately Natasha's was open. Great organic & local fare creatively prepared. The portions were good and price point quite reasonable. We enjoyed our time and our server was delightful.
