Roost American Ratings and Reviews
This is a special event restaurant (private parties, holidays and special events) owned by Roost restaurant in the Oregon Distract.
Had a great time and great dining experience for Thanksgiving, was had a great food selection on the buffet with full bar
Will definitely recommend as a place for your holiday gathering for family and friends.
Very disappointed in the size of portions for the price. The wedge was half the size of a normal wedge and it was the smallest piece of cod I have ever seen. In fact I didn't think the fish was on the plate given the extraordinary large serving of potato. A very strange meal, especially given the price.
Food was blah. Roost Italian, the sister restaurant is really good and would highly recommend. The sides to the rib-eye were better than the protein. The price, food, and location make this a big disappointment for me. Skip the new location and go to Roost Italian.
Dinner with friends before a concert. Our reservations were for an hour before the concert...we were late to the concert. We placed drink orders upon arrival, but it took forever to get the drinks served. Long delay on the food orders and the food is, really, just so-so. For the prices on the menu, one should expect much better.
Just nothing special here. Food was just OK, and portions were very small. My piece of cod might have been 4oz. It measured about 2 X 3". How is that a main course portion? No bread was offered prior to the meal. They were out of the appetizer I wanted, even though it was early in the evening, and they only have four or five appetizers on the menu. Service was a bit slow. We waited about 15 minutes after we finished our meals for a waiter to bring our check, and another 5 minutes for the cards to be returned. We went here to meet friends prior to a concert, and, even though it's conveniently located for Fraze events, I wouldn't go here again.
I was so so disappointed! Our evening was HORRIBLE!
Our reso was at 6:00pm and our entire party of 4 was seated out on the patio!
We were headed to a concert At The Fraze at 7:30pm.
We ordered appetizers that took in excess of 40 min our entree was then ordered.
There were 4 other tables out on patio that came AFTER us and was Served BEFORE US!
We waited 1 hour 15 min - unacceptable!!
Our server provided no explanation or compensation!!
Plus, I had to send my steak back
They really need to get it together!
Arrived a few minutes before our 6pm reservations. Only one host who was slow seating people. We were going to the Fraze for a 7:30pm concert and believed an hour and a half was sufficient, but not here. We ordered right away but food was not brought until 7:09pm so we had to gobble it down. No time for coffee or desert. Food was far from special. Starting with their specialty of onion soup which tasted so bad only ate a few bites. Waiter did apologize for delay in bringing out food for they were short staff. He went and checked on our order and said my pizza was done but waiting on my wife's pork dish and it would be two minutes which turned into 5-6 mins longer. Obviously my pizza sat around for it was only luke warm. It would have been very good if it was not cold. My wife's dish was merely "so-so" and did not finish it due to taste and time restraints. Many restaurants have came and gone from this location and this one will not last long unless they provide better service and better tasting food. I do not mind paying the higher than market cost they charge for food but not under these circumstances. I have been to there other location and service and food were good. This location really misses the mark. I would not recommend this restaurant until they get their act together. Too many nice restaurants out there to ever consider this one.
Our server was awesome. Sadly our food was poor. Had the salmon and it was pure salt. Husband had the scallops and whatever that big blob of pasta in the middle was horrid. No flavor to anything besides salt. We love roost Italian and will never come back to this American again.
Food was good with fresh ingredients, although the pesto sauce on the pizza was too strong on the garlic. The atmosphere indoors was nice, but I was disappointed when the hostess said there were no available tables outside. My group of 6 had to sit inside by the window and stared at an open table for six the entire evening. Nobody ever sat there. There are enough other good local restaurants that I will probably find one with more helpful staff next time.
Had reservation and was seated in timely fashion, however, it took 30 minutes before our order was taken! The drinks were good and they offered a GF menu. When received our order there was no sausage on my... sausage and mushroom pizza! They did give to us for free due to that. Overall, highly unimpressed with the restaurant. However, it is a great place to park the car for Fraze pavilion.
First time trying Roost American. I definitely enjoyed the food selection my husband and I got. We ordered the Caesar and wedge salad and the pear and bacon pizza and butter poahed filet. Filet was very tender though slightly overlooked for how we ordered but still enjoyable. Coctails were overpriced in my opinion compared to other restaurants we've gone to. We were able to get out in time to make our concert at the fraze. Husbands only qualm was that we never got a refill on water.
We had to wait to be seated (even with a reservation); hostess was busy...
Our table was dirty, but she forgot to return to clean it. After 15" we stopped someone and asked if we had a server. We weren't in a rush/good thing. Food - appetizer, salad, entrees were very good.
We were apprehensive to try this one. Some reviews were scary. We sat on the patio, had Thomas as our server. He was attentive, made good recommendations. We enjoyed our meal, had fun enjoying the atmosphere of the fraze. The food was flavorful and had creative combinations we haven't tried before. We will come back.
Ended up here in advance of the Happy Together Tour and all the exuberant Boomers which are attracted to that, nonetheless - a very good meal with exceptional cocktails/wine from Andres. Knowing how to make a Negroni is no small feat and the South African red blend made my night in spite of the bubble-gum happiness around me. Admittedly the French Onion soup was light on onions and the Wedge salad was sans wedge - all in all enjoyable and a good value. Will return, hopefully on a better musical note.
We had reservations for 5 for dinner at 5:30 before an 8:00 concert at the Fraze. Wasn't crowded when we got there. Server very attentive. As time went on it got a bit more crowded and servers were having a hard time keeping up. A different server delivered our food. My burger was luke warm, and the fries were very salty. There was so much salt that I couldn't brush enough of it off. Otherwise, everyone's food and drinks were good. Server forgot to bring sauce that we requested. Two of our bills had to be redone due to errors.
SLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWW service. I hate to leave this kind of review because my husband runs a restaurant, but if you are in a hurry DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. Food was mediocre. Spinach/potato hash has no seasoning at all and there is no seasonings at the table. We made reservations and when we asked if we could sit outside the hostess looked at us in horror and stammered around for a few seconds. The patio had only a few diners so it was obvious that the hostess had no idea what was happening in the restaurant. We were seated 20 minutes before a drink order was taken and the rest of the service followed just as slow. This place should step it up if they want to serve the crowds at the Fraze.
