A wonderful experience from beginning to end. The menu was quite elaborate and we asked our waitress Erica to make the selections for us. She was point on with everything! What a wonderful meal. Highly recommended for a real treat.

Really good restaurant, nice atmosphere with a pretty outdoor patio. I had heard that their baby back ribs were good and tried them for the first time. They were great and the Grassroots cole slaw was incredible. Also, they offer a very reasonable wine list with good selection.

Always delicious! I just loved the Farmers Chopped Salad...crunchy good! My husband orders the Chicken Waldorf Salad. He loves it!! Get staff, reservations are honored on time...great pricing! Killer French fries that I request with no salt! I like to put my own amount of salt on them..I need to be careful with my sodium intake! Variety is the spice of life! Grassroots Tap menu...from Burrata, to Chile, to fish, to burgers and I especially like the salads! You can’t go wrong with anything you order!

Out for a nice evening and saw a huge rainbow right over us. Our drinks (martinis) were ample and super chilled...perfect, and at Happy Hour prices :-). Both the Ahi Salad and Ahi Steak were superb as always. One of the specials was swordfish steak and it was a little dry. Overall, another great time at Grassroots.

I went there by mistake. Intended to visit twisted vine. Not bad, but not as good as the vine a few stores fronts away. Said they weren't awarding open table points for some reason??

We had an outstanding lunch at Grassroots Kitchen & Tap in Scottsdale. We sat inside but next to the open french doors which give you a feeling of being outside. Had the wonderful blacken Mahi, Mahi sandwich. The fish was done to perfection, moist, well seasoned with wonderful flavor. I had the grilled asparagus as my side dish. They were wonderful, fatter spears that were tender and cooked to just the right doneness. Definitely would recommend a return visit.

This place is a great place to eat! The food is amazing and so is the service. The only real noise came from a table with a child that the dad was teasing and getting all wound up! Other than that, it was a perfect evening!

Grass Roots never disappoints. I go on Wednesday for the Gumbo soup,a touch of New Orleans. Great outdoor seating and friendly servers add up to a great dining experience Will return soon

My husband and I visiting my son here in Arizona we from Connecticut and made reservations to try Grassroots for dinner and we weren’t disappointed. The place was very nice the wait staff was wonderful and polite and took notice of us at all times. As luck would have it the special was swordfish and it was perfect. My husband had the beef short ribs which fell off the bone. The appetizer was pork belly’s a must if you go. The brownie with homemade Carmel sauce vanilla ice cream and toffee bits was out of this world and more than enough for 2! I highly recommend

We had a lovely table on the patio with dappled sunlight and comfy benches but there was quite a bit of noise from Hayden. Recognize they can not do anything about that but it does negatively impact experience.

Never disappointed. Great menu, this time I had the tuna poke and a small Cesar and both were tasty and fresh. The service was very friendly and helpful with great suggestions. We sat on the patio which is a bit less noisy and enjoyed another wonderful dinner.

The food was amazing. Melt in your mouth braised short ribs with the best, rich and thick burgundy sauce. The jalapeño cheddar grits were full of texture and flavor without being too cheesy. The Waldorf salad was fresh and tasty, full of crisp apples and walnuts. The restaurant was furnished very nicely and instantly gave me a very comfortable feel. The U shaped bar was inviting and the colors of the walls and the decorations were patriotic and mellow. Desert was a large brownie, light and airy, covered with a scoop of vanilla ice cream made at the creamery right next door. On top of that was drizzled the most amazing caramel sauce and nuts. This is definitely my go to, must eat at, location in Scottsdale.

Had the Caesar salad with chicken. Very nice, smooth dressing. Not so tangy and strong as many. Portion was good. Friend had the Chicken Salad and she said it was very good. Waiter recommended nice white wine blend which faired well with salad. Very attentive, wine glass never completely empty and he was pouring. Did not wait long for food. Overall nice lunch and would recommend.
