We are open for dine-in!

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!

The food and drink menu were great even though they stopped serving early. I also enjoyed the seating and patio, but wonder about the messaging of the photography decorations around the restaurant. All other guests dining there looked like privileged ‚folks‘

Felt COVID safe, had a lovely waiter, and the food was fab. We shared the pancakes, enjoyed blood orange mimosa's, and I went with the great huevos rancheros.

Always a wonderful experience! The food is so unique and tasty. We ordered the lamb burger and shrimp ceviche tacos, delicious! Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable with the random questions we had. We even got our own small bottle of spray sanitizer! Can’t wait until our next date night at Root Down!

Love the creative dishes and vegetation options. Wine-by-the-glass selection was very limited. Could use a few more options.

This was our first meal out since the Covid closings. The food and service here are always wonderful but we really appreciated their attention to detail in maintaining space and providing sanitizer at each table.

Forgot one item on our order :( server failed to consistently check back. We were there for fathers day and a birthday, and honestly I expected a complimentary birthday dessert since we ran our bill way up, but no special treatment in any way which made us feel unimportant. Food was honestly just ok, and server never even asked us how we liked the food. Typically we love Root Down, this may just have not been their day.
