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.

This is the 3rd time I have dined at Grassroots and it just keeps getting better. The Seared Ahi salad is so refreshing! The Shrimp Po Boy was delicious as was the Brisket Sandwich.

Through the years we have enjoyed eating here and love that they have healthy choices on the menu. Occasionally service has fallen short--but this evening everything was wonderful. The service was perfect and attentive. We enjoyed our food and drinks. i have one request--Any chance you will bring back the trout option. We always loved it.

I loved the food - but we sat a bit longer and chatted and nobody offered us any more ice tea...that was quite rude. That makes me think the wait staff is not happy?

Our server had poor timing. We had just sat down and he asked if we wanted something to drink. This was the way he was all evening. He wasn’t very friendly and then slow at providing end of meal service. Rest of the staff was great.

Pork chop was really good. My kids absolutely loved the fries and the ice cream next door was a nice treat. Only downside was that the AC was not pumping out and we were pretty warm in our booth.

This is the second time i have been here. First time was a grand slam-everthing about it was amazing. This trip did not meet expectations. The AC was not functioning and we were not told this prior to sitting down. Even when we asked about the temperature we were told they had been working on it earlier in the day however it was back up and running- this was not true, the temperature kept rising throughout our meal as we were seated right next to the thermostat. Food was delivered in a flash however sandwiches were not visually appealing and were tossed on the plate. I would give this place another chance however was really disappointed by the lack of transparency.

Fresh, satisfying, creative food. As former NOLA residents, this place hit all the right buttons for us! We live out of state, but otherwise we’d be back on the regular.

Everything was nice. I thought my salad with salmon was a little skimpy. My husband thought the shrimp with grits was just okay. Our servers were lovely, and the ambience was very nice.

AC wasn't working well. Server was disinterested and inattentive. Realize there's a server shortage so even with that issue in mind, it was subpar. The food was great, thus the only saving grace. But being hot during a dining experience is pretty miserable.
