My husband and I had a wonderful meal. The food was very good and the margarita was the best! The big brownie with the vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce with the toffee bits hit the spot! Always nice to sit on the patio. Highly recommend

Grassroots is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The spicy tomato jam with burrata us a “must have” for me (or just a jar with a spoon). We prefer to sit on the patio—it’s a little quieter.

Overall the food and service are excellent and reliable.

Always great! They make almost everything on the menu in-house; so fresh! Consistent! I wish they could do more to minimize street noise on the patio.

Have been to Grassroots many times. They never disappoint. Food was very good and came out quickly.
We prefer the patio when weather permits. But this last time the street noise was apparent. That didn't stop us from having a good time. Our server, Sydney was outstanding and very attentive.
A great place to go!

Grassroots is as good as it gets.....we were a party of four and we all enjoyed the dishes we ordered! burgers, rack of ribs, roast chicken salads fries, slaw......nothing we had could be faulted!
We also found the. We also found the staff to be extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the ingredients and how the chef intended to prepare a particular item!

We had friends from Indiana in town and sat out on the patio. They enjoyed the evening, as did we.

Food was delightful. Service was average. The real knock is that despite having a reservation we were seated by the bathroom which had a stream of water coming from it. Rather than cleaning it up or fixing it the staff placed a yellow caution slippery surface sign on the hallway floor. Somehow my appetite changed being surrounded by mysterious bathroom water.

We wanted an 11:30 reservation but it wasn’t available - picked 11:45 instead. Birthday girl forgot and arrived at 11:30 and it was pretty empty (*crickets*) - but she was seated in the very far back corner of the patio- as far from any humans or glimmer of a ‘vibe’ that you could get. When I arrived at 11:45 there was no connection made that her and I were together (even though I explained to the hostess) and I was taken to a different table (in a better location in my opinion). Oh well. Service was attentive, veggie platter and Noble bread were both outstanding and I guess that’s what matter the most. Who needs contact with other diners to have a good time, right?

I always enjoy this restaturant. I loved the special I ordered--scallops on a bed of perfect grits with a ham tasso gravy. The vibe at Grassroots is always very pleasant and the wait staff was attentive. My friend is a chef and he is picky so he thought the sauce on his baked beans and the ribs was too sweet for his taste but that was a matter of personal taste.

Restaurant week and liked the menu. Too much food for me to eat at night (not their fault). Fortunately doggie bags exist. Bit too much carbs though.

My husband, father in law and I met my college roommate and her husband for lunch at Grassroots kitchen. The only low top seating for 5 were booths. I had asked for a quiet corner in the restaurant but alas, we were seated in between two other booths whose occupants bounced our booth quite regularly. And the noise level was deafening, making things particularly difficult for my father in law who wears heating aids. Service was excellent as was the food. But the noise level and u comfortable booth would keep us from going back unless in cooler temps where outdoor seating on low top tables is an option.

Food was the highlight and was plentiful and tastey. Our server didn’t even let us know that there were “specials for the night. Overheard another server informing her table of special dishes. Would have been nice to know from our server. He seemed to be rushed and just going thru the motions.

Very unexpected. We stopped in to eat while we waited for an appointment. What a surprise. Everything we ordered was terrific. I had the piggly wiggly. My daughter had the scallops. The slaw was excellent. Everything we ate was really good. One of the best meals I have had in Phoenix. We will be back soon.

The food was delicious as usual. I had my favorite person Ashley wait on us.

It was my friends first time in and she was very impressed by the Vibe of the restaurant, the service and of course the food.

I look forward to my next visit.
