Roots The Restaurant
Excellent luncheon menu. Delicious,Excellent luncheon menu. Delicious, locally-grown food.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit and it was very nearly as great as the first. My only critique is that there could have been a little more sauce with some of the dishes. Our server, Carrie (sp?) was just terrific - enthusiastic and super personable. I highly recommend Roots to anyone looking for the best dining experience in Rutland.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty food and excellent,Tasty food and excellent, friendly service! Salmon entrée and dessert were very tasty and well prepared. The calamari was tasty but slightly oily - only fault with the food.

Always an excellent meal!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBean and kale soup overseasoned.Bean and kale soup overseasoned.
Emu was ordered rare, but parts were medium. Emu is very lean and dries out at medium.
Massaged kale salad was outstanding. Beet salad was a traditional one, and well executed.
Blueberry cobbler was nice and light but the blueberries were not organic. Perhaps the blueberries served here are not heavily sprayed, but in general, organic is critical for blueberries.
Limited cocktail list but decent wine list.
All in all, a satisfying meal3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Roots onlyWe have been to Roots only 2 times. We first heard about Roots when the first opened, but have not had the opportunity to visit them until now. We have been for lunch and dinner. Both times we were very impressed with the quality and taste of the food. The service was friendly, helpful and welcoming. It is a small restaurant, so you really get personalized attention.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
