Stephen’s certified sommelier (*) on staff is able to accommodate the ever-growing population of wine enthusiasts. Stephen’s currently offers a distinct wine enhancement option:

Wine pairings with dinner: You can enhance your four-course dining event with distinctive wine offerings served with each of your four courses. The wine selections will be hand-chosen by our sommelier to enhance your respective dining selections (**).

Come experience a multitude of top-notch wine selections as you explore the world’s renowned wine regions with our licensed sommelier. Incorporating a wine-tasting option into each of your dining courses is a fun, educational and memorable way to enhance your special event.

Additionally, our sommelier can incorporate a “personal wine cellar” option if your preference is to bring your own private wine collection for service to your guests. Virginia ABC law permits patrons to bring their own wine to restaurants. We welcome this enhancement to your dining experience at Stephen’s. Should you wish to bring your own wine collection to Stephen’s, please be aware of our corkage policy (***).

Stephen’s will also be hosting stand-alone wine tasting events and dinners in the future. These events will be open to the public and will require advance registration. Our website will announce upcoming events!

(*) Sommelier designations: Certified Sommelier, Court of Master Sommeliers; CSW- Certified Specialist of Wine
(**) Additional fees apply.
(***) $20 corkage fee assessed for each standard 750ml bottle you bring for your guests from your private wine collection.

For specific questions, please call us at 540-344-7203, or email specialevents@stephensrestaurant.com.

We look forward to being a part of your very special event!

"For fish of a different stripe, amble down to this Roanoke classic. "

See the review of this classic Roanoke restaurant in Southern Living.

"This longtime restaurant offers Creole and Cajun classics without the travel expense to the Gulf... I highly recommend Stephen's Restaurant."
