Took my dad here for an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner and we both ordered from chef’s tasting menu. All food was delicious, but coconut shrimp salad was by far my favorite dish!
We absolutely love Roost! The menu is always amazing, stellar service and so quaint.
Wonderful meal, great service, good value. Will definitely be returning soon!
Delicious food. Great service. All around great experience.
Good food, warm, inviting space.
The food was beyond reproach, the service was flawless, and the atmosphere could only be rivaled by a smokey bar with a singer that would be the reincarnation of Billie Holiday. Needless to say, a visit here would be only regretted if it was missed.
Roost is a go to and always love going there! Dolores was fantastic as usual and the food didn't disappoint!
Always great! Loved the new Bibb lettuce salad and the pistachio crusted Gulf fish!
We had not been in awhile, due to COVID. They had set up tables outdoors, besides the normal picnic tables they usually had. We sat outside. Our waiter was great and very helpful. Friendly, but not too friendly to be annoying. Food was as delicious as we had remembered. Bottle of sparkling rose was not overpriced and we really enjoyed. it. It was a lovely evening. Can't wait to return.
Went for a birthday dinner, had the birthday boy stunned with how wonderful everything was. The food was delicious, the interiors were gorgeous (almost reminded me of a converted house), and the drinks were superb! I also love how they change their menu every 6-8 weeks! So every time you go you can get something else!
Also, it was a relief that they don't sing to you!
Went there for my husband’s birthday. Everything was absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to go back!
Roost is always fantastic. So glad they’re doing reservations now. The restaurant is so cute and quaint. Great service. Amazing menu.
Perfect place for completely unpretentious yet totally cerebral food. Fresh, creative, and high quality eats in a warm and relaxing space made for the perfect girls’ night out. (Adorable date spot too!) Loved each and every thing, including the perfect service and high attention to detail. The guest experience is clearly something obsessed over. Will be back again and again!
We consistently have terrific meals at Roost. Friday we brought some great friends who had not eaten at Roost before, and they loved it!
Roost is always a great spot. Simple, unassuming, yet extremely carefully thought out cuisine with great service.
High expectations for this restaurant. Service was great. However, the food was below par. Fish entrée not cooked thoroughly, chicken entrée overcooked and peaches in the peach salad were hard. Nice location for a neighborhood restaurant. Maybe it was just an off night.
Creative and tasteful cuisine served up with smiles and LOTS of (maybe too much :-)) water.
We enjoyed are meal with you; the food was delicious. Thank you.
Did not have a menu. Smartphone with application needed. My smartphone does not have application.
The Roost is definitely a hidden gem! My wife an I were able to relax and enjoy a nice conversation. Food was seasoned very well and wasn't overbearing. The customer service was wonderful and VERY attentive. Will recommend!
This was one of our first outings since the pandemic began...and it did not disappoint. Besides fantastic food, we were very impressed by their safety precautions. Even in such a small space, they maintained adequate social distancing between tables, staff was masked at all times, and they used QR codes for their menu. Everything was delicious and the whole evening was a treat. I highly recommend making a reservation and visiting Roost!
Fun. Great family dinner
We had a magical and romantic experience, with delicious food and drinks brought to us by Roost’s dedicated small staff. We were delighted by all the HRW options, and surprised by the generous portions. Also, the wine list was great and offered many perfect pairings, which just added the extra touch to our dining experience. We can’t wait to join the staff again!
Great food and atmosphere. Everything was fresh and made to order and dining felt safe in the covid era.
Went with my wife for our anniversary. Although I noted that in the reservation, it was never mentioned by the wait staff.
Friday night restaurant week. Flexible Menu choices and had GF for my spouse. Cauliflower + Gulf Fish (flounder) + Key lime pannacota - excellent. Paired with a nice Napa wine at a fair price. Definitely would recommend.
It was a fantastic meal, and I can't wait to go back with friends.
Always terrific food and service; Dolores and her team take great care of our family!
Overall the Roost did not meet expectations. For HRW, you would have thought they would put out a showcase menu. But my pork chop was dry and the steak was chewy. This was our second visit to the Roost and wanted to give them another try. But we will not go back.
Great food, great value for what you get on the HRW menu. The peach salad and fried cauliflower are really good, with the right mix of seasonings. The redfish was very fresh and placed over delicious corn and fresh, pickled vegetables. The warm apple cake was a fine finish to the meal. Kevin does a great job with his recipes and is very generous to donate $5 of each HRW meal to the Houston Food Bank.
You must try the fried cauliflower. It was so good. They turned something boring into something extraordinary yet still simple.
Participated in Restaurant Weeks menu and it did not disappoint. Everything we tried was a hit! From the peach salad to the apple cake for dessert. Really good service too. We had Andy and he was really friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.
Absolutely excellent, with a very cozy, family feeling. Can’t wait to come back!
Good food, quaint ambiance and great customer service
Went for Houston Restaurant Week - great options and everything was wonderful as always!
Always good food and service, even during these weird covid times. So glad to be able to enjoy Roost and hope to do so for years to come.
Our favorite neighborhood place. Very attentive to the COVID situation, so we feel very comfortable when we go. Miss the scallops! Can't wait to see the new menu when it comes out. BTW, the crab cakes are yum!
Memorable food - loved the cauliflower and pork chop, great service and very personable chef / owner! Great experience!
Server did the absolute bare minimum, my tea was old and tasted moldy. I told my waitress and she said nothing, took it and walked away and moved on as if nothing happened. No new tea or different drink or apology. My pork job was good but my wife’s food was partially cold. They looked like they were having trouble managing everything but their is no excuse for poor service from the waitress.
