Root Down serves “globally influenced seasonal cuisine,” which basically means we go where inspiration leads us. We’re not tied to one style or genre—we’re hoping to create one of our own.
At Root Down we pride ourselves on striving to solve the ‘Omnivore’s Dilemma.’ We have created a dining spot where all dietary needs will be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten free; also allergies or intolerances are always handled professionally by the kitchen team. Our menu has icons reflecting this philosophy, though we always request you notify your server of specific needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!

This restaurant is a keeper. I have sent so many people to this restaurant (based on menu and ratings) and finally took my boyfriend there last night for his birthday dinner.
The menu is so interesting and wonderful - something for everyone.
The service is perfect - just the right amount of attention.
And, what measures most businesses is what happens when everything is NOT perfect..... They take care of it with grace. There was nothing necessarily wrong but there was an item I just didn't care for and they replaced it quickly with something else. I will go back to this restaurant again an again and again.
Second visit and can't wait to come back! The food was delicious and creative, it was hard to choose from so many interesting combinations.
Outstanding food, creative, delicious, veg forward without being strictly vegetarian. A better way to eat.
Our dining experience was outstanding, as always. An eclectic, unique venue that is rock solid. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. Root Down is a staple in my dining out stable of venues.
Amazing as always in every way. Service, recommendations, food ,cocktails....every bit of it was wonderful.
My friend and I went to Root Down for our combined birthday celebration. At first, we were seated at a tiny two top right next to another couple. I wasn't too happy about that, but didn't complain. When my friend showed up with her daughter in tow, we were moved to a booth-which was much more comfortable. We ordered the beet salad, a cauliflower small plate, and the Morrocan Chicken entree. Everything was SO good. We enjoyed every bite. The flavors are really quite interesting-what they add to what sounds weird, but actually tastes so good. We were treated very well by our wonderful server. Water was refilled quickly and empty plates cleared. For our birthdays were were treated to a yummy dessert that tasted like chocolate mousse. My friend's daughter ordered the chocolate bomb which we all enjoyed as well. Everything was good, service was excellent, and atmosphere comfortable.
Love the plant-forward menu and the flavors used to produce the dishes. Great atmosphere. Seriously one of the best meals I've had in a looooong time!
Food is always amazing. As the restaurant fills up it gets overwhelmingly loud. Otherwise great place !
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere.
Our waiter was outstanding. He had a full understanding of both the wine list and the menu. I don't remember his name (Glen maybe?) but he did a very good job.
The food was incredible! We had Devils on Horseback and desserts.
We will definitely be back!
Best veggie slider we have ever had and the squash risotto was interesting and delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Such great food and our server Andria ( spelling?) Was so wonderful!
Disappointing. I used to love Root Down, but I found it boring and some combinations on old favorite. The interior of the restaurant was very creative when you opened but now it’s tired
We had a terrific meal in a comfortable space. It was fun and hip, but still very comfortable. We had two appetizers-the arepas and burrata- and both were amazing. The carrot goncchi was good, and the meat eaters enjoyed the lamb sliders. Serrvice was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing.
Awesome food. Went with a couple who were vegetarian and they thought it was one of the best vegetarian restaurants they have ever been to. Amazing meat and fish options also.
You can’t beat their unique and delicious menu along with the friendly staff.
Usually love this restaurant but for a party of 9, the bar is not the place to sit and have a nice dinner. High tops=bar which i didn't realize. The food was good and is always good but there was not much meat on my lamb this time. Just a bad day at a usually good restaurant and I will go back with a smaller group!
We had a great experience at Root Down. Our party was 4 adults and one toddler. The service was amazing, food was just as good, and they went out of their way to make our toddler happy (ask about their kids’ plates!) The only thing that wasn’t great was the price- you basically need 3 small plates to fill 2 hungry people, so with a drink each, food, and our son’s plate, our total was about $120.
The food, drinks and services were fantastic. We are looking forward to going back soon.
Server Rachel took the time to answer questions and was an exceptional addition to the restaurant.
Everything was amazing! Staff was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I have Celiac and they take food intolerances/allergies very seriously. All of our dishes came out with gluten free flags. Highly recommend!
Delicious flavors, expertly prepared, lots of terrific options for vegetarians, vegans, and gluten- free.
Excellent place to enjoy a great night out on the town!
Amazing menu and great service. Their seasonal menu is always amazing. The carrot gnocchi was so good I’ve been dreaming of it.
Moroccan chicken is the best! I will try to recreate some version at home but I know it will pale! Delicious desserts, too!
It was my mom's birthday and they were incredibly attentive, including giving her a signed card by folks in the kitchen and multiple staff members wished my mom a happy birthday personally while we were there, which was super sweet.
Each time we go to Root Down it never disappoints. Each dish builds on the next and it is a fun experience all the way around. The food, the service, and the ambiance were wonderful!
Love Root Down. Drinks, food, atmosphere but especially the service. From our friendly greeting to our bartender recommending a phenomenal twist on a traditional manhattan to our server - the service was the star. Keep up the great work. And absolutely loved the cauliflower appetizer. Delish!
Delicious artfully-prepared dishes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It's our favorite Denver restaurant.
Loved that they accommodated a friend of mine in at the last minute without any issues. My chicken was fantastic and so was my glass of wine.
Been twice for dinner and had a great experience each time. Excellent food (and drinks), great service, and a cool space. The “bar seating” still gets you a table - just in a different room. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
The restaurant is over rated. The food is bland, it has no flavor. For the cost of each plate, the food is also minimal. It was very disappointing when you pay to go out to eat and you can literally make better food at home. I will not be returning to this restaurant.
Our server, Matt, was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. He suggested some yummy dishes that we really enjoyed. Between the great service and delicious food, I highly recommend this place!
Everything was above and beyond expectations!! They worked with my family’s many food allergies and had the best food I have had at a restaurant in years!! I can’t say enough good things about Root Down! Phenomenal!
Wonderful evening. Stellar food. Excellent service.
Fantastic as always! A great pre-theater dinner spot for my group. Everyone can find something yummy.
Came from Vancouver and wanted a fun gay brunch, and this was everything I wanted. Brunch was fantastic and our waitress kept the booze flowing. Recommend the toast to help soak up the booze.
Incredible food and service. Came with friends for my birthday and our server was an absolute blast. We had a really amazing time. Thank you Root Down for a wonderful celebration! Will be back.
