REVIEWS OF Leonore Restaurant IN Virginia

William Holland

I was home for the holidays and wanted to try local Italian food, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised.

Mark Feldmann

Friendly and great cuisine

Deborah Hilton

I really wanted to like this restaurant, but despite there only being one other table occupied for dinner the waiter messed up our order several times. There were only four of us there, and the meals were not complicated. When I finally got my meal, it was cold and took so long. Not only was it cold, but it was flavorless. However, the staff was relatively nice. But there are much better restaurants downtown with great food.

Charles Holmes

Nice place to visit and have a good meal and have a beer

Brandon johnson

Great music great place to attend

Katelyn Burton

My favorite place in Roanoke. Perfect for date night, with a quiet atmosphere and excellent food. My favorites are the Venezuelan entrees, but my husband swears by the pizza. Everyone's happy at Leonore!

As a "Caraqueña" living in West Virginia, I was pleasantly surprised there was a restaurant relatively close by that offered Venezuelan food. The place is very clean and the girl that served us when we arrived was very pleasant and I had the chance to speak Spanish with her. Unfortunately she left and we were then served by a male waiter. I ordered the Polllo Guisado. I was SO EXCITED to try this dish, but unfortunately it was black peppered to death. After picking out all the blackened pieces of chicken, I enjoyed the vegetables and the fried plantain. I let the waiter know that the chicken was inedible, and even he acknowledged that that's not the way the dish is prepared, but nothing was done to remedy the situation and I basically paid $11 for rice, stewed vegetables and fried plantains. I would have thought the owner or a manager would have come over and remedied the situation, but it was never acknowledged, I will never eat there again nor recommend it that place to anyone I know. One simple mistake, yet the way the situation was handled, or better said, IGNORED, turned me off from that place. NO GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE.

You can never go wrong with Leonore’s. Every single dish I’ve tried, Italian or Venezuelan, is absolutely delicious! The service is great and the owner is an awesome member of the Roanoke Valley community. I just love this place. ❤️

Just little to quite

Evangeline Taggart

My boyfriend and I stopped in after hiking to the Roanoke Star last Saturday. We found it quite by accident, after traipsing across town looking for food options that weren't 30/plate. The restaurant was busy when we got there, so we waited at the bar. (Good service. Nice bartender.) The restaurant can't quite figure out what it wants to be; it's Italian / Venezuelan fusion. ... So naturally, we decided to try both sides. The arepa was delicious... Chicken salad with avocado. Mm. So creamy and tasty. Would definitely order it again. The garlic knots were slightly over cooked, but yummy, especially with the exquisite marinara served on the side. His entree, chicken Alfredo, was not incredibly noteworthy, just creamy and cheesy. Honestly, I wish I'd stuck with the arepa, because.... My entree, chicken marsala, tasted so strange, that I started feeling sick from the flavour after four bites. *I would not recommend that dish at all.* I packed it up and brought it home. The next day, I decided to "try" it again... Still horrible. In the end, I doctored it up with Alfredo sauce from a jar and sauteed mushrooms. Overall, the service was good, the food was good, the mixed drinks were good. If you want a neat experience with affordable prices, try out this place.

Anne Wagner

Our dinner at Leonore was the GREATEST They made us feel so SPECIAL Again THANK YOU

Jessica Cubero

We had a table of 8 and the place was not busy. We put in our orders and and it took them almost an hour. And when we did get our food it was good but at room temperature.

Lino Rodelo

It was a very pleasant visit! Loved the attention & service provided by Jered, food was delicious & very tasty! It took me by surprise as I was not expecting such exquisite place! Definitely looking forward to my next visit!

Becky Cothran

Marcia Navidi-Kasmai

Karen Ampeh

chris w

Great staff and food. Take their time to make sure deliveries are correct.

Donnell Brooks

Fast friendly service, very good food please don't be afraid of getting recommendations you will not be disappointed.

Tracy Coe

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants not after the experience I had to tonight. I made a reservation 2 weeks ago for my son's birthday and when we arrived they did not have it. The table was too small for everyone so then 3 of us had to sit at another table away from the group. We waited over an hour for our food and when we got it it was cold! The part that really upset me was not one person apologized. I will not be back and I will definitely tell everyone we know to stay awah!!!

Rengasayee Veeraraghavan

Done of the best eating in Roanoke. Great pizzas and subs and phenomenal meatballs. And then there is the Venezuelan menu - some of the best pork you'll ever eat!

Scott Sutton

New menu. Great prices. Great Pizza.

Priscila Silva

Great spot for some traditional venezuelan food. Very unexpected on our travels down South. Definitely recommend!

Patrick Kennerly

Outstanding cuisine. Friendly and helpful staff. Intimate setting. Nice little bar. In the heart of downtown.

Lela Leggett

As usual, a 5 star experience with Lenore Restaurant. I had the lunch lasagna which came with garlic bread. Also ordered a slice of sweetheart cake. Both were delicious. The lasagna comes in a bowl with bubbling cheese. I forgot to take a picture. Their breads are made in house. The sweetheart cake is moist white cake with a whipped white icing. There is a little pineapple between layers. Delicious.

Caitlin Hodges

Excellent pizza. Garlic knots were great. Awesome staff. Definitely coming back soon!

ian price

This restaurant is filled with babies not making noise. P.S. Band is great background. Big fan of the arepas and Italian dishes!

Marcus Clausen

I came in for lunch with high hopes, I read online and heard that this restaurant was great. After my wife and I got seated they took our order and brought our drinks, the restaurant was not very busy but it still took almost 40 mins to get our food which included one piece of pizza 2 salads and an appetizer. The salads were good no complaints there the pizza and the appetizer was doughy and undercooked, the only reason I am giving this 2 stars is because there was a female waitress who was amazing and friendly had a great personality. Oh and we started off with a male who took our order, brought us or drink and brought me my change after I paid for the meal,and then never saw again.

James Muldoon

Great menu and service

Melinda Mcdonald

Great place for Venezuelan food. Great spot for an appetite of any size. I will be back with my friends. This place has a nice atmosphere.

Randy McDaniel

Leonore has been open for around 5 years. They have expanded their dining area so I assume they are doing well. Their pizza is good and their prices for main courses are very very reasonable but the flavor of those main courses is just not there. Not sure if it's the quality of the products they buy in order to offer such low prices or or what. If you are on a budget and want to go out for dinner then this is the place to go but as the saying goes you get what you pay for. Service was great and the restaurant itself is cozy.

Jordan Poole

Occasionally grab a stromboli for lunch here. Tried the Arroz Con Pollo today. It was clearly made with canned vegetable medley, tossed with rice and chicken. Very disappointing, and not "sauteed" or "fresh," as described.

Ivy Tucker

Great i love it best place to eat wings ever

Michelle Lucas

This place is always packed and there food always smells so good.

Matt Campbell

Food and service were very good, will definitely be back.

Kat Pascal

My favorite restaurant downtown! Arepas are my favorite. The staff is courteous.

Kristy Cornell

Leonore's is one of my favorite lunch spots for consistently tasty food! Their lunch specials are varied and are of good value compared to other downtown restaurants. I have not been to any of their salsa nights, but I've heard good things. My gal pal and I went one Wednesday evening and partook in their wine specials, and their homemade Italian dishes are so scrumptious. They have something there for everyone! You won't regret giving them a chance.

Brian Butenschoen

Good location and good food. Nice change from standard lunch fare.

Jessie Roberts

Great food at a reasonable price. Whether it's Italian or Venezuelan the food is terrific.


One of my favorite places to go and definitely get dessert.

Local Guy

Home made food like no other. No other restaurant in town like it. The food is unique and made one dish at a time by the caring owner and their staff. You can tell by the quality ingredients that they use. Highly recommend!

Dennise Lopez

Great food and excellent service

Bob Historybuff

Great tasting food and friendly staff.

Trevor B Photography

Best BBQ chicken pizza on the planet

Bryan Kearney

We are in town for VT orientation. We followed the advice of Yelp, and were very pleased. The ambiance is kinda bland but the food is great. We had a mix of Italian and Venezuelan and both we great. We would highly recommend this place.


Cozy surroundings, amazing food, wait staff is attentive and very friendly. Top 5 of all restaurants in town. We had food from the Venezuelan menu. Makes my mouth water thinking back on it.

Angie Draper

Great pizza Great prices

Monique Minor-Hunter

I ordered chicken marsala through Grub Hub. The food arrived quickly and hot! However, my meal did not taste good. I was pretty let down. The marsala sauce tasted strange and the chicken was a little tough.


Awesome Venezuelan food! We'll definitely be going back! The atmosphere was so laid back and gorgous. We loved it.

David McDougle

Never actually been to the restaurant but delivered through a third party. Delicious every time. The best shrimp alfredo I've ever had. Worth every cent

Eli Harrison

The arepas are to die for! Best, most authentic ones you'll find in the area. Crunchy, fresh, and affordable

Joey Len

Outstanding. Great food, great people, great atmosphere.

J Malue

Such a good place. Nice people and great food. Can't go wrong

Kristen Palmer

Food was delicious and very reasonably priced! They have both American and Venezuelan food. Service was a little slow but I think that's because we went at an odd time and there was only 1 server working (4pm for dinner). I will definitely be going back. The staff were VERY friendly.

isaac s

This is the perfect place to go when you’re trying to eat something different, delicious and cheap. I just have good things to say about this place.

Luis Sanchez

Pizza is ok. Sauce us sweet. Will try Venezuelan food next time

Mega Davis

Took my grandsons there for dinner in November. We all three knew it was going to be good as soon as we walked in. We weren't disappointed. I have found my "go to" place in Roanoke... But keep it a secret, will you?



Ash Vinny

The atmosphere is indeed delightful and the food is delicious. Love this place.

Samantha Robie

Good food and great service! The maple bacon cheddar flat bread is a must!

Service was great! Food was good. Need to visit again.

Heather Hodges

Our party of 4 decided to try this place before the 9:30pm Comedy show at the Market Building. At 8:15 we were seated quickly in a room with very loud live music and waited about 10 minutes before our server took our drink order. She was already apologizing for our wait and brought the drinks out promptly. Each couple ordered an appetizer to split but they came out slowly, one at a time. So 20 minutes after ordering we got one app then 10 minutes later we got the 2nd app. The bruschetta and tequenos were very good!! So at this point it's 8:55, we are starting to worry about having time to eat our entrees versus running them back to the car. At 9:15 we decided there was no time left to eat or place in the car, canceled our order and asked to pay for the drinks and apps we'd eaten. There was quite a bit of confusion about this and getting our change so we could continue to the show. The person I assume to be the owner came out to ask "what the problem was" and "the order had only been up 35 minutes" None of us were very impressed but how things were handled and were highly disappointed to continue the evening without dinner. I am willing to try again because the food I did have was delicious but only if I have plenty of time wait for it. I do wish we had the choice of sitting near the music or the other room.

Ph si

Food was ok. Or biggest complaint was the extremely long wait time and the fact that the appetizers came out at the same time as the meal. We were surprised that despite the long wait time, the food wasn't that special, they used parboiled rice, and the meat was overcooked and tough. The final straw was the obnoxiously loud live music. It was impossible to have a conversation at the table, and our ears are still ringing 45 minutes later. It was something different, but once is enough for us.

jose schmidt

Great Venezuelan food

James Woodson

The Venezuelan food is delicious AND they offer Presidente beer!!! I've heard their Italian food is also great!

chuck smith

Good food

jose feliz

My wife and I had the best time at Leonore on Monday evening. The waitperson "Caballota" aka Maria was a breath of fresh air! She helped with entre decision and the food was outstanding! From the rum punch and appetizer to the beans, sliced steak in an incredible Venezuelan spice with plantains on the side... to the last meatball...(there was very little conversation while we ate). The atmosphere of the restaurant is just right. Nice, yet comfortable. It was so unique to be able to order two separate cuisines and both dishes being genuinely cooked to perfection. Maria has a perfect blend of working hard and being sociable. The pricing was very reasonable as well. Our new favorite restaurant is only 150 miles from our home! "So we have that going for us, which is nice."

Dave thetechguy

Overpriced. Slow service. Very noisy because overpaid customers try to out talk everyone else. Food was just ok.

Jimmy Malek

Kevin was a great server to both me and my friend as we dined for our first time at Lenore's. The chicken wings were phenomenal, as was the simple but fresh Mediterranean salad....I look forward to trying many more things on the menu as I share this place with friends and family in the near future.

Katie Anderson

James Lane

The food amd costs here have always been fantastic.

Li-Or Greenberg

Food was good. Did not like that the prices on lunch menu were a little different than what I was charged. For example lunch specials menu said any arepa and salad for $8 and I picked a $9 one and so was charged $9.

Josh Carroll

Love this place I've been going for years and it had only gotten better.

Uclid Sylvestre

Honestly. Best wings I've had in Roanoke so far. Best thing about them were that they were baked.

Catherine Reed

I enjoyed my meal. Service was decent. The inside of the resturant was quaint, modern and clean on the inside. Would come again.

Charlotte McLeod

Nice and relaxing atmosphere. Sat in the bar area. The staff was friendly and attentive. John even went to the double of looking up a nonalchoholic drink I was interested in. They had all the ingredients. Even the cucumbers!

Sheep dog's gal , the fam

Leonore's is a very quaint place. Inviting and clean. The staff were welcoming and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed their chicken alfredo. Very delicious! I will be back to try other food options there!!! The owner was very attentive in making sure I had everything I needed.

Judith Harrison

First time pizza to go, very good second time chicken marsala to go, dry hardly any sauce, last night linguine with meat sauce to go, no meat and practically no sauce at all, no 4th time, Judy H

Wayne Leftwich

Great food.

Frederick Henry

Worth the visit and prices weren't too bad.

Paul Wellons

Ever since a friend of mine told me about Lenore's I've been trying to make it over there to try them....and I did today. Excellent venue, wonderful atmosphere, and extremely friendly and attentive staff. Top that all off with the best pizza I've had in a looong time and you have some idea of what it's like to go to Lenore's. Their lunch specials are affordable and even their "full" price menu items are extremely reasonable. I'd have no problems taking a client there for a lunch meeting, or hanging out there with friends one night.

Jessica Privett

Tried Leonore's for the first time tonight with a friend... the food was delicious, the wine selection was excellent, and their knowledge on good wine was very appreciated... our server Isaac was so sweet and personable, he made our night with his humor and overall good nature. We'll definitely be back soon and often!


Highly recommend!! Great service, great food. Try the Venezuelan menu...delicious!

Patricia Baxley

Chicken parm. Really good

Cyrus Pace

This restaurant was truly a great experience. There was live music which was very pleasant to listen to while eating. All of the staff were very friendly. The food was amazing, I got shrimp Alfredo and it was probably the best I ever had. It was a perfect blend of sauce, noodles, and shrimp. One of the best restaurants you can go to if you are downtown.

Scott Fisher

The food and service was good. I would happily go back.

The best chicken marsala in the roanoke area . The food is always fresh and worth any wait . The staff is always friendly.

Food was delicious, drinks were amazing; we tried Margarita, Mojito, and Venezuelan Cuba Libre. Staff was kind and helpful. Atmosphere was good, too; I saw a variety of people including a family with 2-3 kids. We will go back to try more. They also have a live music as well. The online menu on the website is incomplete though, please update it.

Edwin Sales

Great staff, good for groups. Helped out our large group in short notice with friendly service. Well come back here again.
