It would be so great if you had more dedictaed vegetarian dinner options. My bf got the gnocchias he is vegetarian (I am not), which originally had meat in it. It was really great that the chefs made an adjustment to take that out, but we still were still charged full price. The value should have changed because the price of meat far surpasses that of vegetables.
First time at Local Roots, and first off they were very gracious and accommodating about changing our reservation time as we were running late.
The small, varying menu really reflects the care the chef gives to what is available and sustainable. Everything placed on the table was presented with intention and was delicious. Our server Cindy was so incredibly lovely. For anyone afraid of a farm-to-table restaurant erring on the side of pretension, I would say sit at Cindy’s table. No airs; no pretension. Just good food served with kindness and purpose.
I loved my experience at Local Roots! T food was phenomenal, atmosphere was great, drinks were tasty. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
Absolutely one of the best restaurants in town and Cindy is the best server there!
Great food, quality ingredients, flavorful and filling. Would highly recommend and plan to return.
Fairly limited menu items, but willing to modify for gluten-free, vegan, etc.
Super fun night! Fabulous drinks and service. We can’t wait to return. And the other patrons there were so friendly.
The food was fantastic and so was the service.
There was no food! We tried ordering 5 different entrees, and they ran out of all of them. We ended up leaving after appetizers to go to a different restaurant
Service was great....menu delicious- though a bit small....great drinks and choices of beer/wine/fun drinks.... Oysters were just okay but a nice atmosphere!
Our food was well-prepared and sumptuous. Our server was excellent and timely.The bartender made fabulous drinks. Over all a great experience.
Great food service. We will return
We have dined at local roots many times and are always happy with our experience. This night our server was incredibly rude and rushed our entire meal. The restaurant was never more than 50% full… I expect to enjoy my time with company at a nice restaurant. Food was also not up to par. Cheese board was lacking, mussels were over cooked, and the burger was very small for $18. I don’t mind paying $18 for a burger but this burger did not justify that price point. I will try it again but it will be some time.
This place is fantastic! The drinks are so fresh and delicious! The salad is great because the veggies are picked that day. He oysters on the half shell are perfect. Their entrees are amazing and the deserts are spectacular!
Amazing atmosphere with incredible food and superb service. Highly recommend.
Delicious food and outstanding service!
Really enjoyed our meal!
Another outstanding meal!
Predictably good as usual!
Expensive mediocre food. Server was friendly. Drinks were ok.
Literally every single thing I’ve had here has been incredible. A must.
We waited 20min for our drinks and the bartender was grumpy and didn’t even apologize!
Relaxing dinner in the window seat to kickoff Holiday Weekend! Highly recommend!
As always - one of our favorite brunch spots! Delicious food and good service! We miss the biscuits - and the charcuterie board … nice to have something to nibble on when your especially hungry and fresh brunch takes a few minutes…..
Phenomenal food that was reasonably priced for the quality. Will definitely be back again!
Third meal at this restaurant over an ~6year period, and it consistently impresses. The 3 plate size categories of ~1/2 dozen choices allow for a sampling of several dishes which is terrific. Inventive recipes and high quality ingredients lead to the Outstanding rating. Varied and very fine wine list, and the craft cocktails are very very good. PS - the house made limoncello smells like the Amalfi Coast - perfecto!
LR is a unique and flavorful dining experience. Staff are kind and professional. I would highly recommend Local Roots.
We were there to celebrate my friend's birthday and the meal was outstanding. We had appetizers, main dish and dessert and each was fresh, interesting and so delicious. The service was awesome and all servers and staff were very attentive and made sure that we had all that we need. Dining at Local Roots is always a wonderful treat and so enjoyable! I love the changing menu and seasonal cuisine.
Although the menu was limited our food was delicious and our service was excellent! We will come back!
Four of us dined on a recent weekday evening. Dining room was a bit slower than usual, so noise level and general activity was very amenable to a nice, casual experience. Our server was excellent and the dinner offerings were tremendous.
Excellent visit..again! The food was awesome and the service spot on. I also liked that they have a nice wine list with a range of wines both in taste and in cost. We sat outside and enjoyed watching folks walk to and fro while we had dinner. I had a salad and steak. The combo was yummy but too much for me to finish in one sitting. The steak and fingerling potatoes were yummy warmed up the next day.
Use to come here regularly before the pandemic. It took awhile for them to recover once some restrictions were lifted but they seem to be all the way back. Always been one of the finest restaurants in the region
A wonderful little spot! I’m so glad we stopped by. Our food was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to stop by again!
Menu was to small
No red meat
Would have liked seen more options didnt even have a fish dish
Outstanding food and attentive service. Wine was perfectly presented.
Charming neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and service. The restaurant proudly serves locally sourced food. Glad we tried it while traveling through.
The food and service were lovely. The wine list and menu options were varied and all highly appealing. I would recommend and revisit this restaurant.
The muscles were great as usual, otherwise it has gone downhill. Pandemic related?
We loved dining at Local Roots. The food was wonderful; the atmosphere, very pleasant and friendly.
This is a local gem that we enjoyed very much. Cindy, our server, did a great job describing the menu options and added greatly to our enjoyment of the evening. Highly recommended.
Fantastic food, excellent service, wonderful ambiance! Loved it!
Local Roots is our new favorite in Roanoke. The cocktails are very well done. You can tell a lot of thought and preparation go into each dish. The food is unique, fresh, and delicious. The service was wonderful. We will definitely be back soon and highly recommend this place to anyone who asks!
