Beginning on January 4th, through January 26th, we will be taking a break and giving our teams a well deserved rest after the holidays, and Root Down will be closed.

We look forward to returning on January 27th fully rested, rejuvenated, and ready to continue doing what we love - serving you and creating a space to connect, share, and enjoy the presence of friends and family.

Don’t miss us too much because Vital Root will remain open for to-go service Tuesday through Sunday. For more information please visit our website or call Vital Root directly at 303.474.4131.

With never ending gratitude and love,

Edible Beats and Justin Cucci

Really pleasant atmosphere, outdoor dining was actually nice and warm. Food was great. Only thing is we had to wait to be seated for while even though we had a reservation and then our waitress took a little long to take our order but they made it up by getting us a free delicious appetizer. Overall a positive experience.

We were married on the first and chose root down as our post wedding celebration location. Due to covid there were only three of us. We were seated in an outdoor greenhouse with a space heater which was cozy and pleasant and given a small bottle of hand sanitizer for our table. Covid precautions were excellent. The food was amazing! We are pescatarians and there were plenty of options and everyone was very pleased and well satiated at the conclusion of our meal. We will be back for sure!

Good was spectacular. Root Down will be one of my go to’s. The only reason for the 3 stars on ambiance is that it was very cold and COVID prohibited inside dining. Go for the food and excellent service.

We were able to sit in one of the plastic tents on the patio, and it was great. As always the food is delicious at root down, and the servers are very personable.

Their drinks are severely lacking. Considering it was 40% of my $220 check, I’d expect something more than a child sized and watery old fashioned. Otherwise, this place is fire. The food was amazing. We got carried away with talking and catching up after three years separated and from outta town but the host was very adamant about us leaving after overstaying our welcome by thirty mins. She tried to do it nicely. Ruined my moon considering they had a dirty table right behind us for several mins and only one small party waiting up front when we left. But I get it, they were trying to flip tables and keep up with reservations. All she had to do was ask if I’d like to buy more drinks. My alcohol bill was likely more than the late night snack and night cap anybody else would be getting at that hour. I understand that language...gotta pay to park. Anyways, won’t let it ruin a fantastic outing with old friend and great food on a coincidental crossing. I just regret not getting cobbler!

Overall star rating isn’t a reflection of the food or our server but rather the very rude manager. We sat outside in the plastic bubble and had a lovely meal.

Our bubble had a rip in the back panel and ended up also tearing by the zipper in the “entrance” flap. When the manager came over he was very passive aggressive and asked us “what happened” ... very clearly the cheap plastic had ripped.

When we were leaving, we asked if it was an issue and if he wanted us to do anything, he refused to make eye contact and continued his passive aggressive comments.

Great food, great service but really awful manager. Definitely put a damper on an otherwise wonderful morning.

Shocked by the bill... not worth hundreds of dollars. Just a regular night out, upcharged to the max. Wouldn’t recommend for your typical night out.

Used to be one of our favorites but I am not sure what happened this time around. The flavors were not as great as usual. Even things that have been on the menu forever were different and tasted a bit off. Hoping this was just a one-off experience.

This was our 2nd visit. They let us sit outside under a heater and we enjoyed our friends for 3 hours! Service was great. Cocktails are creativ, wine list was good. We were there for Restaurant Week . The menu choices were really great, compared to many other menus I looked at. They had many regular items. We loved everything we had. Beet salad, Devils on Horseback, Curry Soup, Chicken, Rockfish and Pork entrees, and all three desserts. The 4 of us loved it all!

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and were looking for a delicious, gluten free restaurant. Root Down was highly rated and was listed as a “must do” on so many travel blogs. I can see why. We had wonderful service, delicious food, and an attentive server. Next time we are in the Denver area we will visit again!
