The review was listed at mid-point because the restaurant had to call and cancel our reservation hours before the scheduled time do to Virginia government coronavirus protocols. The manager was very apologetic.

Region’s 117 is a great place to eat! The entire atmosphere and experience was wonderful. The service was outstanding and always attentive while not being too much. The food was outstanding, and not what you would find at other area restaurants. We enjoyed the evening in a quiet setting with plenty of distance from other diners. It was a very nice evening.

I am a HUGE fan and have been to brunch many times and loved it. This passed Sunday as a Valentine's gift to my husband of 41 years , we came for brunch. My meal was terrible, the worse meal I have ever had there. He wasn't impressed with his but said it was "ok". Imagine my disappointment that my gift was - a flop.
The eggs benedict, my very favorite item, was like I was some other place. The English muffin was so tough I could not cut it, I put it to the side. The Canadian Bacon was paper thin, NOT was I was expecting at all. One egg was perfect, the other was cooked solid. There was not nearly enough Hollandaise Sauce for the 2. But the home fries were PERFECT!! I ordered the apple crisp with ice-cream. The ice cream was fine, the crisp was NOT crisp and it was watery, as if frozen, and microwaved to serve. It was warm, not hot..
I was just so disappointed in my Valentine Gift. I chose Regions 117 because we can't afford to go as often as we'd like, but appreciate every meal we have had there. I have brought friends from Timberville and Richmond to brunch and it could not have been BETTER!!! SO I am not sure if there has been a change in chefs or it was just a bad day. I will try again when I can afford it, but I will be scared I confess. I hope this isn't the new "norm".
But we had a GREAT Young lady server, who could not have been better! We had reservations at 12:30 and went right in.

We went to Region's 117 for a birthday celebration, as we do a good bit. The food was excellent and the service was great. Our only complaint was the back up at the bar in getting our initial drink order. There were about 30 people trying to cash out their bar tab to get to Trivia night. We waited about 20 minutes for our drinks. They need to improve that situation. That situation added about 30 - 40 minutes to getting to our order. We weren't in a big hurry, but we were getting pretty hungry, by the time our food came.

Unfortunately Regions is not what it used to be. We approached the check in desk staffed by two hostess’ neither one acknowledged our presence until I said “ Excuse me”. MI gave my name and since I was early I asked if I could order a cocktail. I was told I would have to go to the bar and place the order myself, there was no table service in the lounge. I ordered from the bar and an excellent cocktail was delivered to my table by the bartender.
When our party was complete we again approached the hostess, the table we were given (we had made a reservation) was probably the worst one in the house. There were several other tables available but they had not been cleared from the previous patrons. We asked if we could have one of the better tables and were willing to wait. Unfortunately the hostess must have forgotten about us, I noticed the table had been cleared and reset but the hostess didn’t seat us until about 15 minutes later, after I enquired if our table was ready.
Once we were seated our server was excellent and knowledgeable about the menu. The problem is in the kitchen. We placed an order for the Brussels sprout appetizer with bacon. The appetizer came quickly and the dish was excellent, Brussels sprouts were grilled and carmelized to perfection and served with thick bacon slices. The problem was the lag time between appetizer and main meal, at least 30 minutes and I noticed several other tables were waiting at least that long for their dinners!
Our mains were pedestrian, both seemed to suffer from “sogginess”! The eggplant Parmesan and “fried chicken” were soggy not crispy. While the portions were generous, the eggplant Parmesan was lacking in taste and texture. I couldn’t taste the “fire roasted”
tomatoe and the eggplant was soggy not crispy. The chicken resembled
A “chicken fried steak”, again lacking in taste and also soggy? We decided not to order dessert.

Susan, we are that your experience wasn't how it should've been when visiting Regions recently. We take value in your reviews and I would like to inform you that I have heard you & am addressing your points with the staff. In planning for the evenings business we generally pre-assign tables based on reservations and I believe that is where the delay must've been on our part. Again I apologize and I will send my information privately, please reach out to me. Thank you Susan.

I was about to call with these comments. We are one month into residency at trilogy. I had the vegetable stir- fry. Meager portion, I It seemed you used minute rice. Minute Rice? I haven’t used or tasted hat wonderbread of grains since the 60’s. And then it was clearly jarred teriyaki sauce, sort-of dumped on top. Way too much, overpowering any flavor the few pea pods and half a baby boc choy could add to a plethora of squash. With little more effort something yummy could have been presented. Stir fry with fresh garlic and ginger, add a dash of soy sauce, perhaps some Asian chili sauce. Please use jasmine rice, oriental restaurants keep it for hours so can any restaurant which offers rice. Our daughter ordered a chicken Caesar and found it ho- hum. Hubby had millionaire burgers, loved It. in all a poor eating experience.

The dining room is open to both the lobby and the bar, making the environment quite noisy. The food is mediocre. The crab cakes use a recipe unlike any other ever experienced by this reviewer. They were chock full of unnecessary ingredients not normally found in crab cakes in the Mid-Atlantic region. From time of order to delivery of food was excessive. Region's 117 needs a lot of work to come up to the standard of a reliable provider of good food.
