We have been to Root and Bone several times now for both breakfast and dinner and it is consistently very good. The staff and management try very hard to satisfy. The only complaint I have is that I'd like to see the servers a little more attentive to the during meal follow up, i.e. filling the water glass, coffee cup, "is there anything else you need", etc.

Absolutely delightful. Loved the Bloody Mary bar, pimento dip with fried green tomatoes, eggs Benedict, and pork belly bacon. They had fun live music and gorgeous decor. Can’t wait to go back.

Fried chicken still remains the best in town, hands down. Yellowtail was very disappointing. Possibly a bad piece of fish? Poor flavor and presentation. Waffles served cold is unexcusable - like they premake them and then sit. The speciality teqiuila drink is amazing.

We found 2 hairs in our food. We had to tell our waiter. And although they took the meal off the bill, it was still very gross. The rest of the party got grossed out and didn't finish eating their own meals. It put a major damper on our lunch.

The host and the server were extremely friendly the ambience and decor were great but unfortunately the food was poor. The food came out lukewarm and bland. The server was extremely nice but it seemed like he lacked training which would fall on management and not him..... would not recommend

Noisy inside. Nice terrace for dining when it isn't raining or too hot. The service is friendly. Not much of a beer menu. The food seems to come out in random order. If that bothers you- skip this place.

We arrived on time and were seated immediately. The waiter was very patient while we waited for another member of our party to arrive. Once the other person arrived service moved right along. Our food was brought to the table in a timely manner. Everything was delicious, my fried chicken was very moist, even after heating my leftovers in the microwave the following day. The waiter was excellent. I apologize for forgetting his name.

One star all around. Went for the Miami spice but was told that in order for me to order Miami spice ALL members at the table had to order Miami spice as well, mind you THERE IS NO DISCLAIMER ONLINE OR ON THE MENU THAT STATES SUCH POLICY.

First time last Friday evening. Enjoyed very much. Good service. The Drunken Deviled Eggs were great. The Sticky Pork Belly Bacon was served cold, and just not good even though had good flavors. Supposedly this is their typical way of serving. But, they eagerly made amends by grilling another and serving warm right after. Now that's the way to serve it. Was very good. Shrimp & Grits was also very good. Hope they stay around. Want to return and South Miami needs good places to go since so few to choose.

I highly recommend and really enjoyed Root & Bone food although on the pricey side, we all though it was very good. I will say the specialty cocktails were priced right, however I found the wine was overpriced for this level of a restaurant. To enjoy a glass of wine should not cost as much as your meal $20/$24

Very noisy when full (no noise attenuating materials). Daily special was very good, the lobster pappardelle was mediocre (practically no lobster or taste).

Great food, ambiance and friendly staff. The menu has a great southern flair and the food has a wonderful home cooked appeal to it. It's in a great location in downtown South Miami with convenient parking and a Miami Metro station across the street. The ambiance is definitely hip but not over the top. The full bar is lively and friendly. The service is very professional and the staff goes out of its way to make sure everything is to your liking.

We arrived 40 minutes earlier than our reservation, and although the restaurant was packed, they managed to seat us.
From the moment we sat down until we left we were impressed with the service, the attention, the food, the atmosphere. For starters we went with (Drunken Deviled Eggs, Sticky pork belly bacon,) We had to order the appetizers twice; It was that good. I ordered the Chicken and Waffles my wife the Everything Bagel Waffle it was terrific.
For all you bourbon drinkers please ask for JEFF ask him to take you on a Bourbon Flight. Seriously, looking forward to what Jeff comes up with next Sunday! Stay Tuned.

We ordered the watermelon and farmer cheese salad. When it came to the table there was no cheese. Told the waitress and she returned with Parmesan cheese. Later I told her the salad was supposed to come with farmer cheese, not Parmesan cheese. She said the kitchen told her they were out of farmer cheese. So why didn’t she tell us that when she brought us the salad or the Parmesan cheese?

Reservations for 5 on online included note its a birthday dinner for son going to college cookie was fine, biscuits good, wine good, fried chicken excellent, only entree merited its reputation. As waitress removed 1/2 eaten dishes she NEVER asked if something was wrong, poor service.Check came, they did not put the wine on my tab, embarrassingly my friend paid for 1/2 a bottle, she only had 1 glass. NOTHING for b-day,finally, u charged me for the drink while we waited 30 minutes for our table-low class! Our dinner was $300+, awful.Gables resident, will not return, will MOST CERTAINLY NOT recommend. Called mgr next day, still waiting 4 call

Not worth it for the price. Way overpriced for quantity of food. Service is extremely slow. Not the restaurants fault but also extremely loud inside that fish bowl. Won't be back or recommend.
