My husband and I dine at The Bank on special occasions and have never been disappointed. Always an awesome menu and food preparation. Servers are top notch.

“Best ever!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

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 we just couldn't stop nibbling on the popcorn with our drinks. I followed up with the Coca Cola brined chicken livers - melt in your mouth delicious - and my husband enjoyed a cornbread whoopie pie. We both had the Rockfish for our entre - perfectly cooked on a bed of salsify puree and grilled broccoli rabe. By all means, don't skip the desserts - enough said. We continue to love this restaurant and will be back again whenever we are within driving range.

“Dinner on the 16th of April”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

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 we both order our steak medium rare. What we got was 1 cooked medium well and the other was very well done. Nothing was good about our dinning experience there. NOTHING!

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 server and the chef asked if your steak was to your liking, you didn't indicate that the steaks were not to your liking. It's hard for the chef to improve the situation if he's not told.

Again we apologize that we missed the mark and would love another chance to make it up to you. It's never our intent for our guests to leave unhappy.

“Gem in a Small Town”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

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.
