After a long drive to Denver and a long walk to Root Down, we had an excellent, novel meal with tremendous service.
Great food, we just had to wait even though we had reservations, and the service was pretty slow. Would definitely come back again though to try more on the menu!
Always a great variety of healthy food! It's been a favorite for many years.
Delicious food, love the farm to table aspect, great ambiance and energy! Highly recommend if you're visiting Denver.
As always it was a great experience. The food is amazing, the service is exceptional, the atmosphere is inviting and friendly. The only issue I had on this one occasion was that it took them a long time to refill my bottomless mimosa after the first glass. They did make up for it though when I mentioned it and had to ask the food runner to refill it. Then they started flowing. Also felt like for the price the mimosa it was more fruit juice than champaign. But when a mimosa is the only complaint, you know it's good. Highly recommend the Zucchini Bread French Toast. It was incredible.
Food was fantastic and service was crazy good. It was so busy and our server didn’t miss a beat. Thankful for the wonderful experience at Root Down.
This was our first visit since the onset of Covid, and we were delighted to be back. We were so happy to see a "full house" of guests enjoying themselves, and to know that we can look forward to many more visits over the years.
OUTSTANDING food and cocktails. Our server made excellent recs and adjustments. Would go back tomorrow if we weren’t leaving Denver
Everything would be five stars because the flavors were wonderful, the service attentive, friendly and efficient, and overall it was a great experience. So nice to be out again.
But I had to ding the food a star because none of the vegetables were cooked. This is a pet peeve of mine and it is happening a lot in restaurants lately. They don't take the time to actually cook vegetables. If I wanted raw vegetables, I would order a salad.
Thank you for such a great experience. We had a lovely time, enjoyed the food, and our serving expert was absolutely the best and kindest professional. Thanks for everything you’ve done for the community as well.
The food is uninspiring. The service was slow. The menu is extremely limited for brunch.
I can appreciate the attention to sustainability and carefully sourced ingredients. They do a great job of that. The food, however, was just ok. Not bad, but certainly not great.
A Denver go to for a special treat. They pay attention!
The gnocchi are incredible and if the chef has any dinner specials you should order them!
Our server was incredible. The gnocchi and arepas were huge winners!
The best restaurant in Denver. The food was outstanding but the staff is the best in the industry!!
Loved the ambiance and the food was immaculate.
Delicious food and great experience!
Waitress was incredible, so capable of describing each dish. Also, was able to get me a dessert which wasn't on the menu, but she worked with the chef to provide. A great place for a great meal.
Food, service, and ambiance was fantastic. Loved the margarita! $$$
Dan was great! The food was not only delicious, but an experience. Thank you all for your hard work during these times. You guys rock!!!
One of the best meals I ever had 😊 tons of vegetarian options that were full of flavor!
I absolutely enjoyed my experience at Root Down. Delicious food, great ambience, friendly service.
Root Down has many seating options, including patios. I wish I would have reserved for the patio on a nice day. The food was, as always, outstanding. They were also raising money for charity research for a childhood disease. A very good cause!
Food and service was amazing as always!
Best patio in Denver!
Very good and innovative food. Atmosphere is low key, laid back and not rushed. Will definitely be back!
The best bar staff Is the best in denver
Met friends who are gluten free, and had so many good GF choices that she ordered 2 brunch items. We’re vegetarian and had the same amount of great savory choices. I had huevos rancheros that were excellent, my husband had veggie sliders that were very good, and our friends had the Avo toast and pancakes. Yum!
The service is always excellent and the food and cocktails are incredible.
Best brunch I’ve ever had. Great drinks and phenomenal food options.
I’ve been to this restaurant and other restaurants in this group many times and never have had such a bad experience.
Our server, Tiffany was completely disengaged, at least 4 times One of us had to get up and go find her in the restaurant where she was wiping down glasses or something, to ask for a drink or a meal or for our check etc.
When our meal finally came it was cold and only arrived after a 45 minute wait and a reminder to our server to Check on our food. At that point I did not wanna waste anymore of my time sending the food back and waiting yet for who knows how long to get the food prepared properly.
For so many years I have spent so much money in this restaurant to have been treated so badly. When I tried to call the manager after leaving the restaurant they were not answering your phone nor taking messages. I’ve never written a review online before but this warranted it.
Very gluten-free friendly. Great cocktails, good options for couples and groups.
Beautiful Patio, Fabulous Food, Stellar Service.
We had a couple small plates, split an entree, and then shared a dessert and everything was amazing, as usual. The scallops are always perfect, the mozzarella was quite lovely, the steak was perfectly cooked and the flavors were inspired.
Service was excellent... we got lovely recommendations from our server and she steered us SO WELL.
Service at Root Down was great, they were very allergy friendly and the staff was very helpful. Food was delicious the Arepas were fantastic!
Disappointing, food was not nearly as good as I have had at Root Down previously and the service was pushy and not very helpful.
Excellent. Creative food and cocktails. Lovely decor. A great place to go with friends in an evening. Nice patio too. Parking can be a challenge - expect to walk a few blocks.
My husband and I went out to celebrate my birthday. Our server Deb was great and made perfect recommendations on which small plates to get and how many. The burrata and arepas were my favorites. And the banana cream pie dessert was delicious!
A wonderful experience, as usual. Love the food & great service!
We had a wonderful dinner at Root Down yesterday. 4 of us split the spinach gnocchi, arepas, beet salad, carrot red thai soup, country tofu and sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious--healthy, flavorful, and memorable. We will definitely be back!
