Enjoyed our evening out. I have a food allergy that meant diligence for the staff. Our server was awesome and helped us a lot- checking on everything and protecting my health. The food was flavorful and way beyond what we expected. Everything was homey and welcoming. Excellent evening out. Thank you!

Grassroots is consistently fantastic. About my 12th time eating here. House-made smoked salmon, the shrimp and grits, the pork belly - always delicious. Hands down, the best Caesar salad dressing I've ever tasted. And don't get me started on their swordfish special - I order it every time they have it. Truly an outstanding dish. And the Tower IPA is a don't miss for IPA lovers. Every time I bring friends visiting from out of town, the next time the return, they always want to go back. Oh, and the key lime. In a town (Scottsdale) known for a lot of California owned mediocre restaurants, Grassroots is a cut WAY above.

We eat here quite often and the food is good.
However menu items are taken off and nothing added.
IMO they need to add new entrees or sandwiches.

This is our third trip to Grassroots Kitchen. We go whenever we are in Scottsdale. This time was not up to our previous experiences mostly because of the service and the unexpected cost of a very small house bourbon and coke. It was mostly ice and the charge was $12. Not worth it. The waiter was more interested in watching the basketball game than in being there. Just not sure we will return.

As always, at superlativ! I’m grateful that this restaurant is near my office. The staff as the ambiance is excellent. Can’t point not even one single thing that I could complain about. And the waitress was about a month in her job (Judy I believe is her name) did a perfect job!

Our server was very good but the food was slow in coming out. It was our friend’s birthday which I told the hostess when we sat down but apparently the message was never conveyed. Where we sat indoors it was incredibly noisy; however, I believe that the patio during cooler weather might be quieter. The food was very good. I had the grilled vegetable platter, my husband had the red rice & beans. We recommend both.

Apps were at least more than a day old. The chicken and beef sliders had that "old" taste. Gumbo was without flavor. Disappointed - has been a favorite destinations.

Dinner out during vacation. The menu was great. Loved the salad with added salmon. The shrimp appetizer was super tasty. However, it did seem slightly overpriced for the food we got.

Our server Tyler did not tell us any of the specials nor did he introduce himself. He just asked what we wanted to drink as we sat down. My husband got the Waldorf Chicken sandwich and was disappointed how little it was - all bread and not much salad.

It's really hard to find good service in Scottsdale, and this place was fantastic. My wife and I had a great night on the patio, the server was attentive, well spoken, and efficient even while juggling other tables (one of which was a party of 10 with 5 kids). Oh, the food was always above par, I will certainly be back again.

The best part about Social Hour at this local eatery is the opportunity to enjoy wine or beer and nice appetizers in a very comfortable environment - without all the noise and bustle. Relatively quiet and very relaxing.
