Great experience!! Highly recommend!! The food was delicious and the staff was very courteous!
What an exceptional meal with magnificent presentation and flavor combinations. I am only greatly disappointed that I did not know about this restaurant years ago!
All was terrific except it was noisy, even though we were in a corner. However, it was Friday night and there were lots of people at the bar and we were sitting relatively near the bar area.
I can highly recommend the artisanal cheese plate and the NC trout.
Very good food but it was noisy. Service was by Jeremiah and fantastic. I will be back.
Tuesday eve dinner was underwhelming. Salad was very good. Bread was very poor, they need a baker of to outsource it to Breadcraft...one was very dry, and crumbed upon picking up, the other spongy and tasteless. My wife's trout entree was mushy, looked like a result of pan fry cooking before fully frozen thawed. My Lamb pasta dish was just OK, quite heavy and a bit gamy. Carrot cake desert was awful..not cake at all, just dry beadlike piece with some nasty looking carrot puree and bad ice cream..not good. Service level was good given they outnumbered the patrons.
We went out of our way to stop here on our way home during a recent vacation. We were all disappointed with Sunday brunch. Two of us got French toast upon the server's recommendation. On both plates it was burned. My bacon was more fat than meat. Grits were good.
Very accommodating of special requests or menu changes, much apprectiated
An authentic food restaurant. this is probably the best local food restaurant in Roanoke. I would suggest, however, that you order your meats rarer by two degrees than you like as meats and eggs have been overcooked the last three times that I've been there.
I would however recommend this restaurant to to all who are foodies and appreciate delicious food well combined.
This was a delightful experience. Great flavors with wonderful presentations.
Fresh ingredients, prepared well. Very good beer menu selection. We go to this restaurant any time we are in the area.
Best meal ever. The seasonings were superb. The ingredients were the highest quality. Beautifully presented.
This was a wonderful find in my childhood hometown! The fresh, creative flavors were a welcome surprise. Our server, Andrea, was quirky and fun, full of suggestions and help. We felt pampered with her. The three cheese tray appetizer was so much more than just that-- it came with pickled beets, nuts, seeds, pears, etc. Wonderful taste. My mussels were very good. My husband had the braised beef, and absolutely loved it. Thanks for a great meal for our 16th wedding anniversary!
Great food great atmosphere, friendly workers unfortunately small portions
My husband and I frequent this restaurant and have never been disappointed by our meal. We are both "foodies" who appreciate the thought and preparation that goes into every LR meal. The entire plate is not only presented beautifully, but must be eaten with a little bit of every dish on the plate for maximum effect. The staff is always very friendly and helpful without being intrusive--be sure to ask them for a wine recommendation based on your meal choice as they will pick one that compliments the meal beautifully. My husband and I love to go for a date in the Grandin area with LR followed by a movie at the Grandin. It is a gem of Roanoke, and we cannot recommend it enough (especially the cheese plate and the mussels).
Always excellent never disappoints! Food is delicious fresh and inspiring! Love the ambiance too and service is just right!
Drop everything and go here. It is fabulous. Great food, great imagination, great vibe, great approach to dining. Love love love.
One of our favorite spots in the Roanoke Valley for Sunday Brunch! Love dinner there as well!
We had a party of 6 including teens and adults. This was our first time visiting this restaurant and we were blown away with the food and service. Our waitress engaged us and helped us choose outstanding choices for dinner and a great bottle of wine. Each of us....all 6, made the same comment, "this is the best meal I've ever had!" The tastes were vibrant, unique, with depth and breath of flavors and use of local ingredients. We all commented that we thought the interior could be improved to make for a better ambience. We thought that deeper/darker colors and use of different fabrics, including leather and different art of the wall could create a more upscale vibe.
My mussels were outstanding as always (I've had them every visit). My wife's burger was great and cooked perfectly as requested. My OLD FASHIONED from the bar was the best I've every had anywhere. Had to order a second one..... Definitely love the place!!!
The bison and trout were exceptional!
Great food and they serve awesome Ballast Point beer!
It was more crowded than usual at 6:30 on a Saturday. They had held a wine tasting that afternoon and many folks stayed on for an early dinner. We were concerned the kitchen would be overwhelmed but our meals came quickly and were cooked perfectly! I always love dining here and this experience was consistent with what we have come to expect.
My mother and I love to eat at Local Roots because it's healthy, local ingredients, organic, fun atmosphere and close by.
My favorite restaurant in Roanoke! Went for Sunday dinner. Love the concept and the food is always delicious. Great wine selection too!
Nice evening, service, food overall. The pappardelle with beef (pot roast, really) wasn't a hit with one of our group.
Our server, Nate, was friendly, courteous & knowledgeable.
We had a great dinner for two. Service was extremely good.
Our friends had the trout and said it was the best they’d ever had. Bison was delicious. Snapper was good but modest serving. Oysters were very fresh and nice presentation. Service was excellent!
If you have a bucket list then add this gem to it!
Always a good choice, of my six visits, the staff has been excellent. The wait staff know the dishes, and are well informed about the way items are prepared.
Not a good place to go. Our server did not know the difference from a vegetarian to a vegan to a pescatarian which is ironic because of the values that this local “farm to table” restaurant displays to its consumers. Our server commented on my dates food when she did not finish it in a very invasive and over curious manner. The amount and tastefulness of the food for its price was ridiculous to say the least. I would not recommend visiting this establishment or depriving your pockets of any currency you have been bestowed with.
Food was terrific. The snapper with Brussel sprouts and roasted cauliflower was a fantastic combo. Interesting cocktails and knowledgeable waitstaff. Compares favorably with many D.C. celebrity restaurants.
Amazing food and service! Will definitely be back.
Great service waiter was very good at explaining menu.
For the price the portions were extremely small. And I have seen baby bib lettuce but yours was embryo bib lettuce! Also hardly any meat in the entrée. The plate my entrée was served on was half empty! I actually left hungry! The only thing that was good were the drinks! Also no bread? Very overpriced for what the diner receives. Either lower your prices, or even better increase the portions!!
I’ve eaten at Local Roots for a few different occasions. They have all met my needs for each occasion. One of my favorite places.
We love Local Roots. Perfect for special occasions. The wait staff always makes you feel like you are their only customer. The wait staff has always been very knowledgeable about the meals and ingredients. The meal presentation is always beautiful.
