Excellent food and service. A bit pricey, but the quality is certainly there to support the price, both in food and service. We found the restaurant to be very noisy which did take away a bit from the ambiance.

This was our first visit to Root & Bone and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The staff was energetic and helpful. Our one complaint was the noise level. There was a group of about 8 people at a table and 2 of the guests were extremely loud. Perhaps pictures or some kind of sound muffling would help. I practically had to shout at my husband. Does not add to the ambiance.
Otherwise a great evening.

Our group of eight was celebrating a fun reunion. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Root&Bone. The scallops were amazing, the venison superb, the lamb delicious! The desserts were so very yummy. It was fun to watch the “kitchen in action” from the mirrored reflection. Our server was excellent, the ambience-warm and welcoming. Yes the price tag for the evening was a little steep...but very enjoyable!

Visiting here from Arizona and decided to take family out for a nice supper and decided to try the Root and Bone. In my working life I have travelled all over the world and eaten in many fine restaurants. In my opinion The Root and Bone is one of the best. The food was brilliantly prepared, staff friendly and attentive and a good time was had by all. A great place to go to celebrate a special occasion.

Enjoyed every dish offered in the buffet. Each dish had it's own distinctive flavour and everything was very fresh. Choice of entrée was great and we each enjoyed what we ordered. Very comfortable no one rushing us to hurry. Great fun to watch the kitchen work...all done with energy and a smile.

Lovely as always. Food was absolutely amazing, service was exceptional. This is our go-to restaurant in Niagara for treating ourselves to a nice meal. Prices are average to Toronto restaurants at the same level. You won't be disappointed by Chef Ray’s menu (he is the Executive Chef at Fallsview Casino Resort)!

Loud patrons, despite only about half of the tables being occupied, distracted from the experience, the more so when one departing party called out across the room to another still seated. Obviously not within the control of the establishment--more a statement on the continued decline in public manners. That said, hard surfaces promote prolonged echo, and quiet conversation was difficult even minus shouty exits. Closer to home, the waiter continually referred to my wife as, "Dear," which was overly familiar in any event, the more so coming from someone so young. "Ma'am" and "sir" are all that are needed. Finally, the lack of an amuse bouche, and bread, was a disappointment for such an expensive menu.

A nice meal. I had the fritters as an appetizer. They were very average. Too beady and mealy. Not enough flavor. My entree, beef tenderloin was excellent. The root veggies tasty. It is noisy as it is very small and others are loud talkers. Also, tasty bread with flavored butters would be a great addition as they serve no breads to start the meal. The culinary experience could improve. The service was attentive and very gracious. All in all, a nice experience for a small village eatery.

The noise level was too loud for comfortable dining (music). It did not lend to hold an easy conversation. Paying $5.65 for bread to go with the appetizer and wine is inappropriate, considering the price of the meal.

Delicious food! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of our meal. We tired the pork belly appetizer and the chickpea fritters to start. The pork belly melted in your mouth. The fritters had a pumpkin kimchi which was amazing. For our mains, my husband had the beef tenderloin and short rib and I had the short rib and wild mushroom ravioli. The meat was so tender you barely needed a knife. The flavours in the ravioli were out of this world. I would definitely recommend Root & Bone.

This was our third visit to Root & Bone and again, we were blown out of the water! There is nothing like this restaurant in the region. The food is absolutely outstanding, from the plating to the flavour profiles offered by the chef. I highly recommend the duck and vennison. The ambience is extremely cozy and romantic, great for a date or couples night out. We’ve had both Jaden and Paul as our sever and they make a great team! A complete experience.

We use to be frequent Zest customers before it was sold and renamed Root and Bone. It was our second time there, it was brilliant again. The food was outstanding, beautiful to look at and tasted wonderful with perfectly sized proportions. the atmosphere is eclectic and Paul our waiter was great. Complete experience. We look forward to going back again
