Everything was superb! Loved the open kitchen, speaking with the Chef as he prepared our meals. Presentation on plates: beautiful! Taste: incredible! This place is a gem and we’ll be back often :-)

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

This was our third trip to Root and Bone, and again we were very impressed! The food is exceptional, the service is great and the wine selection is very nice. The ambience of the restaurant is great and I love that you can see everything going on in the kitchen. It is high end without being pretentious. The prices are a little high, but the food is worth every penny. This is food that I would never even attempt to make at home, and for that I will always pay a little more. I highly highly recommend Root and Bone for a nice out and a meal that you are sure to really enjoy.

We have enjoyed tasting menus across Canada and abroad, and it is no exaggeration to say this evening’s New Year’s Eve six course menu is among the best we’ve had.
This restaurant is a gem in Niagara, and we are so lucky to live around the corner and enjoy on a regular basis. Chef outdid himself with this menu, and the team didn’t disappoint either. Thank you, Chef Ray, Gemma and Sharon and team as always for great food, service and hospitality. If you haven’t yet been, you are missing out!

Our NYE celebration at Root & Bone was one for the books. We were treated to a 7-course meal (including an amuse-bouche x2, seafood starter, salad, soup, pasta, tenderloin, & dessert). Every dish was wonderfully fresh, beautifully crafted, and delicious. We savored every bite and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We definitely recommend this restaurant to those who enjoy dining at farm to table establishments. Looking forward to dining here again in 2019!

My Husband and I along with our son went to the Root & Bone to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary, it was the first time that we had been there and we couldn't have been happier. Paul was our server and what a charming young man, he had a great personality and managed our table without any fuss, and of course the root of any restaurant is the food, the chef did an excellent job but I'm sure you hear that all the time.

Here's wishing you a very happy and prosperous 2019.
