I reserved a table at Grassroots for my cousin's bachelorette party. I had no trouble getting a reservation for 8 people--we were seated comfortably in a spacious booth. We started off with delicious cocktails and appetizers of burrata and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus. Then we received our mains--I had the tuna steak which was simply prepared and exactly what I wanted, but the other big hit at our table was the short ribs. Then we received a complimentary dessert to celebrate the bride, which was an incredible brownie with ice cream.

Special commendation goes to our server, Aidan, who was very attentive and friendly. We really appreciated his great attitude and excellent service.

Enjoy the cuisine here frequently and it never disappoints. Went for restaurant week and were happily surprised by a menu of favorite dishes and impeccable service. And the portions were the usual generous servings. Can’t beat that.

Great food. Too noisy but that seems to be the norm for restaurants these days. I guess we aren't supposed to have a conversation - Eat, Pay, Get out. You can call it energetic, I call it noisy. When I am eating I want my body to be calm.

Honestly we were really disappointed by the setting - it was noisy and the chairs horribly uncomfortable. The food - okay, nothing to rave about. The service was okay - again - nothing to rave about. VERY mediocre for the price... we never mind paying for a really great meal but this was just OKAY!

We are regular customers here....always have a great meal...but we know to make a reservation or we'll be waiting! Our reservation was for 5:45...we arrived 10 minutes early! We were not seated until 6:40!!! Evidently a table which accommodates 6 had 2 people at it who had been there since 1:30!!! We tried to be patient but after 45 minutes we asked to talk with the manager. He wouldn't ask them to move to a smaller table.

We are neighborhood regulars and frequent this Scottsdale location restaurant not just because we live nearby but because the food is consistently good. Will be going again on Wednesday for gumbo.

Michelle, our server, was fantastic- fun, on point, fully helpful yet not over-intrusive on our celebration. She knew her menu perfectly and had great personal recommendations when asked to decide between dishes. The cocktails were fun and creative. Appetizers were solid. We unfortunately ran out of time for dessert- but will be back for that another time!

We were in town for just a quick weekend. We looked up the menu online and found several yummy looking items to try. We arrived a bit early so we found a seat at the bar to get before dinner drinks. Service was great, drinks were perfect. Highly recommend the asparagus appetizer. Absolutely delicious.

I had a friend in town from Seattle staying nearby and we wanted a good restaurant at a reasonable price. I have been to Grassroots before and enjoyed. My friend had the lobster bisque, trout and shoestring fries. My daughter had the short ribs and I had the blackened redfish and lobster bisque (well, whatever my daughter didn't eat!)
While the bisque didn't have a lot of lobster chunks, the flavor was spot on. The redfish was delish as was the cajun orzo. My daughter loved her ribs too.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
