Diner Reviews
  • "I had enjoyed my first visit to Uproot in Warren. Our server, Dan, made our experience very enjoyable. The food was very good, and we had trouble deciding what to order as everything sounded excellent. We ended up ordering the Mac and Cheese bites, lobster bisque mac and cheese, the blue burger, and roasted chicken as our appetizers and entrees. Everything was very tasty and flavorful and the food presentation was that of a 5 star restaurant. Overall our experience was a pleasant one and will definitely return back for future visits."

  • "Executive Chef Mark Farro has mastered basic dishes with amazing ingredients and flare. He is young and smart not to mention very very talented. Uproots menu ranges from Tacos with braised pork to Hamburgers with all the fixings. YOU have to try his waffle fries w/sea salt. Whatever your occasion, try uproot. You will put this on your let's go back again and again list."

  • "Uproot never disappoints. The food is always delicious. Their menu changes every few months and its great to be able to try new things. My favorite is their Cinnamon & Sugar donuts - they are to die for."

  • "I took my wife here for Valentine's Day. The food was excellent. We started off with grilled octopus. My wife had shrimp and brown rice for dinner while I had the duck. Overall it was very good. Final bill was a little higher than I was expecting. ($200 for two people with tip)"

  • "Great restaurant! Nice variety of food on the dinner menu - from lighter fare to more traditional entrees. Wine was out of this world! Owner/manager came by to say "hello" towards end of the evening. Very nice personal touch. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The menu has recently been modified. For apps, we ordered the wings and tostadas; the prices seem high, but they're worth it (at least to try once). The wait staff was attentive. The noise level is comparable to that of a place that's busy."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Tasty, unique combinations such as a shredded lamb pasta and a cold asparagus soup confirm Uproot's evolution to the tastiest, casual spot in Washington Valley."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Though located in a strip mall, overall a decent option for dinner. Somewhat NYC feel though food wasn't as hot as it should have been and service was very slow. Very good drink options."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Salmon & Quinoa entree was excellent. If only, my daughter-in-law did not develop a bad reaction to her "green tea", of all things!!! Attention to refilling coffee & inquiring whether it was hot enough or whether a fresh cup was preferred was not addressed by wait staff. Only received more coffee after bringing request to manager passing by."

  • "Opted for the Greek salad with grilled shrimp. Salad was the worst I've had in a restaurant...EVER. Should have sent it back. Other meals ordered at the table were fine."

  • "I've been here twice with my husband, once in June, we sat outside on the patio and once inside. I requested a quiet table and we actually got one. The wine list is also really nice as is the food and service."

  • "The menu is simple and the good is pretty good. It may be a bit tough to find but once you do it is worth the trip."

  • "We are a family of four and are regulars for juicy burgers and wings and wedge salad, friendly wait staff, but a little pricey"

  • "From the friendly welcome, to the perfect table, fantastic service and outstanding food this was indeed a memorable experience. Short Rib stew, delictable, Bahn Mi tacos and the Tuna Tatare were off the charts, superb texture and flavor on the duck and we cannot forget the donuts and the salted caramel dipping sauce. It was a Birthday Celebration for my wife and daughter and we could not have chosen a better place. Nice relaxed ambience, not too loud, very little wait time despite the fact the restaurant was at capacity when we arrived. My thanks to the waiter, owner and kitchen staff for one of the best dinners I have ever had making this a very special celebration for us. We shall return."

  • "We heard about Uproot from a friend and we decided to make a trip here to celebrate the date with a nice dinner at a new place. We were not at all disappointed. The space was outstanding, a large open area but at the same time giving off a very homey feel to it. The earthen colors and decor really give off a great vibe while you are looking over the menu, which is a wonderful blend of upscale techniques and quality products used on some old favorites and some new ideas that blew us away. The servers seem to be well versed in fine dining etiquette, and make you feel as though you are spending much more for your meal then you actually are. Very attentive, friendly, and must have had great training and practice to get to their level of skill."

  • "We had an early dinner on a Friday night, and every bite was delicious. However, due to its need to offer a less-expensive and more family-friendly menu, the "full-meal" part of the menu is a bit limited. However, the items on it are perfection. In relation to the service, in addition to excellent table service, we had a little issue that was well handled. We ordered a wine that it turned out I did not like. There was nothing wrong with it, I just did not like it. The manager made a significant effort to understand what i did like, and changed it. He also checked back later to make sure all was well, and it was!"

  • "When you first look at the menu, it's hard to figure out what type of restaurant Uproot is trying to be. Then you hone in on something you'd like to eat, order it, and OMG!!! I adore the eggplant meatballs (that have no meat in them). The mussels have some of the best broth I've had on the East coast. The pasta I had the other night was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoy the food!!!"

  • "If you live nearby UpRoot is the best restaurant to have dinner or lunch at. The entre and appetizers are excellent produced from an obviously talented Chef. And don't miss the dipping donuts for a wonderful shared desert."

  • "We had heard mixed reviews from people we knew but we hadn't tried Uproot yet and were pleasantly surprised. We went just a table for 2 to celebrate my wifes birthday. We were greeted warmly and having a semi formal coat service is a big plus this time of year. We were seated at a table with a chair and part of a common bench that my wife felt was a little squishy. we loved the solid surface tables, sleek and easy to keep clean. We had the edamame and spring rolls ,the sauteed shrimp with veggies, and the Rib-eye special. The Steak was fantastic, cooked perfectly medium rare, sliced over wilted spinach and top with potato straws. You could cut it with a fork! Donuts were a unique and delicious dessert."

  • "Everyone in our party loved the quality and preparation of the food. The menu has been simplified since we were last there and at first we were disappointed that the restaurant became more casual. However, once we dug in, we were very pleased with their choices. We are finding that more and more NJ restaurants are cutting back from upscale to casual. In this case, do not be afraid to go - you will be more than satisfied."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "I have never encountered a problem or had a complaint at Uproot. The kitchen has always been spot on. There are some items on the menu that are quite expensive, even on the apps list, it is very possible to fill up with a good meal for two with a bill plus 20% tip that is under $50; we just did it. However we didn't have drinks."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "Had a great meal here again. We were a group of 4. We started out with the tuna apps as well as the Banh Mi Tacos - both were excellent. We asked for an extra Taco - normally there are 3 for $10.99 - and there was only a $2 uptick - which was eminently fair. I had the Short Rib stew - which was really exceptional! Slightly on the rich side but it did not stop me from finishing every drop! Two in the group got a Pork special which they loved, and one of us got a Bleu Cheese Burger. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My only gripe is that yet again the choices for dessert leave something to be desired. I have yet to see anything on the dessert menu I'd want to eat. How about something chocolate? How about some "normal" ice cream flavors?"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I had heard from others that this restaurant scaled back to make it more appropriate for the town, and it was excellent. The food was great, and after writing a note in the reservation that a member of our party was turning 21, they provided her with a free shot! Great experience overall."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Go to uproot pretty frequently - the food never disappoints. Love the pork buns!! my favorite appetizer and they are consistently the same every time. I had the pizza, always good. My husband had the steak, perfect portion, cooked exactly as requested. Nice wine list by the glass, perfect stop for a quick dinner either on the weekend or during the week."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I ate here a few years back when it was more upscale/pretentious and was pleasantly surprised by the new, lighter menu, with great casual but still upscale presentations of classic American food. Strong wine list and strong menu with lots to eat if you are hungry or just want to graze. Two thumbs up!"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We loved the original menu when UpRoot opened, and we have adjusted to the scaled down, bistro-style menu. Restaurants have to adjust to meet the desires of their customers, and this one has gone very casual. Christmas Eve and many of the diners were dressed in jeans and very casual - a bit too casual for the holiday and for the decor. Ve The quality of the food has not wavered and for that we are grateful. We had salmon served with a risotto styled farro and it was excellent . Appetizers were crab bites and steamed shrimp dumplings and both were excellent..Our 10 year old was very pleased with her dinner and the desserts were terrific."

  • "The food was very good but the service for lunch was unacceptably slow. I would go back but only for dinner."

  • "Uproot Culinary is a great place to grab lunch or dinner, or to just have a drink after work. The decor is beautiful, the food was great, and the bartender was very friendly and attentive. Two of us went for lunch and will gladly return there! Everything was excellent, highly recommended!"

  • "Very obliging. let us pick where we want to sit from all vacant seating. became progressively noisy as the evening progressed have been there before and would definitely go again for casual local dining."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "This is a great place to go in the Warren area if you're looking for something more than a diner feel. The feel you get as you sit in Uproot is similar to dining in the city. Food is good, the plating is good, and the service is great. Always enjoyed my time at Uproot."

  • "Never disappointed when going to Uproot. Food and service was excellent. The staff was on top of everything and food came out quickly."

  • "I frequent this restaurant every month or so. It's found in an upper-scale town and they keep things interesting. They often switch new item or two into their menu. The bartender is on point all the time. Their menu is inventive. They have lots of interesting apps. The homemade guac is made to order. I get it every time. Their entrees are good and pasta is homemade. I recommend."

  • "We are locals and family of four all love the pricey burgers and sweet potato fries- Never had exceptional Sevice - but OK. Disappointed in my Wedge salad I ordered this time. Was about 1/16 head of lettuce - I am custom and expect to a nice Wedge size portion for the price charge for the salad. Since it's close and convenient we are regulars - Hope they don't decide to be cheap on portions or quality Dawn green brook"

  • "Another trip to Uproot, another amazing experience! The food was incredible and the staff was attentive and friendly as usual. This time, I had the roasted chicken with mashed potatoes (my favorite!) and I got a side of brussels sprouts with bacon - yummmm! My husband had the strip steak which he loved. For dessert, I had the peanut butter brownie, super delicious, and my husband was adventurous & tried the salted rosemary and huckleberry pistachio ice creams, both were stellar! We love going to Uproot because the ambiance is unique & fun, the prices are super reasonable for the quality of the meal you get & the menu has a wide variety of options. There are always new things to try. We will definitely continue dining at Uproot!"

  • "Several visits to Uproot, almost all very good but the restaurant has constantly changed menu, style, etc. It seems to be settling into the current genre nicely -- small plates and appetizer array are stellar and are usually the highlight of the meal. Staff is knowledgeable about ingredients and preparation. Overall excellent food and good value."
