Definitely recommend. Food and service were excellent, what kept it from a full 5 star review was the noise level - it was difficult to converse without yelling at one another. All hard surfaces in the upstairs dining room; adding some noise absorbing curtains or other panels or textiles might improve that circumstance dramatically.

The dining was not my first visit, but my guests had never been there before. I’m thinking dining on a holiday weekend is probably not the best choice. While the food was not a disappointment, the service was somewhat lacking given to prior visits. There was minimal staff as it was a slow Saturday evening. Minimal staff was caring for all tables thus resulting delays in getting serve beverages. Please to have had the chef come to our table and we were able to complement him on our dinners.

The “farm to table” ambience was simple, inviting, and conducive to conversation, while enjoying fresh, delicious food. Music played in the background and small vases of fresh flowers were on the table. My friend chose the shrimp salad, while I had the beef tenderloin sliders with sweet potato fries. The flavors in her salad were well chosen and blended. She did ask for the dressing on the side, but it was already blended into the salad and she wished that there was bread or a dinner roll to go with it. My tenderloin was perfectly prepared and placed on small brioche buns. The side containers of a horseradish/ sour cream spread and a delicious bacon, sautéed onion jam. We had planned on sitting on the attractive balcony overlooking the river, however it had just rained...next time! Thank you, bleuroot and Jimmy and your delightful hostess for an enjoyable dining experience!

We had dinner for a Father's Day celebration. Everything was great, the waitress, the table and the food.
The owner chef came over to talk with us and told us some details about the dishes we ordered and was lovely and so cordial. We would certainly come back again.

The service was great and the building is neat but ultimately a restaurant is about the food. We had a flat bread appetizer that was less than spectacular and that was the best part. I had the spicy bourbon salmon it was boring lacking flavor, on a bed of plain white rice. Try something different maybe

I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is great, the service is great, and the price is reasonable. The only issue with sitting outside is there are a tremendous amount of bugs. I wonder if they spray at all to deter them from the outside patio.

Menu is very interesting and has nice offerings for all diners.
Thought the cauliflower appetizer was exceptionally spicy--wish I had known that would be the case.
Our waitress was energetic but knew nothing about the wine list...maybe she's just new to the restaurant.
Overall it was a very nice evening. We plan to eat there again.

Phenomenal farm to table restaurant. We were very pleased with the good and the service. The signature burger was to die for and we loved the spinach berry salad so much We asked for their bacon supplier . It was amazing and we are ordering some bacon on line from Nueske ourselves. It is located along the fox river and has wonderful outdoor seating also. Would highly recommend

Great service! Server very attentive & knowledgable. Chef came up to our table too & asked how the food was. Delicious entrees (especially the poblano corn chowder). Portions a little on the small side but made up for it in flavor. Delicious desserts & would dine in the piano area next time. Recommend going early to avoid crowd & volume if looking for a more intimate atmosphere. Great location & pretty view of the river if sitting on the patio. Love the old renovated feel too.

This is our 5th visit to Blueroot and as usual the food and ambience was excellent but on this visit the service seemed disjointed and wasn’t at its usual level. Our charcuterie board arriving well ahead of our appetizer plates and the server was unsure what was on it. Also the server didn’t offer a tasting of our whine to the person who ordered the bottle as is usually the case. We’ll be back though, it was just an off-night for the staff.

Brunch
Simple menu that didn’t list pork sausage in our chicken and waffle dish and bacon in the shrimp and grits. Since we don’t eat red meat, this was a major omission in our eyes and would surely have resulted in us ordering differently.
Bloody Mary was “handmade” but unfortunately undrinkable due to the copious amount of horseradish. A good bartender knows balance is what makes a good cocktail and we suspect this guy might not really have been a bartender.
Overall the menu concept is awesome and decor is nice but the execution just didn’t hit the mark.

I made a reso for a standard table for 8pm, but we had to wait in the VERY LOUD bar area until 8:25 for a table to be ready.
Once we finally got to our table, the server got to us by 8:35 and our first course hit the table by 8:55 (we were pretty hungry at this point).
Good options for different dietary needs (vegan, pescetarian, etc). Food was pretty decent. The server was charming. The chefs came to our table and gave us some limoncello before our dessert course.
Recommended: charcuterie, house salad, espresso cake

From the moment you walk in, all the staff treats you like you are being welcomed in their home. The food is spectacular! The grilled lamb lollipops were so good, it would be wonderful if they could make this large enough for an entree. We did save room for dessert and we were so glad we did. The Dolce Vita Warm Espresso Cream Cake was heaven. Our second time here. We will be back.

Love love love Bleuroot! Food was outstanding and so fresh. The hummus tray featured three delicious hummus flavors with matchstick size veggies - beets, jicama, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower along with lavosch. Sooo good! The salads were perfect and the salmon was too die for. Definitely try the lavender martini - it is a delicious experience! Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Overall a great time!
