Everything was really fine tuned down to the last detail including some tasty chocolate truffles as a cordial nod to the anniversary we were celebrating. My only issue was that my omelette was colder than it should have been. But really everything tasted so great that I almost didn’t notice! One of my favorite restaurants always.

Way too expensive. Good food, but won’t be back. It’s way over priced.

We were in from out of town and looking for a place for my daughter and her friends fir my daughter’s 22nd birthday. (A party of six people). We could not have picked a better place. The mood is casual and fun, yet they take their food very seriously. Each dish was fresh, well-imagined and prepared to perfection. The wait staff could not be more accommodating, personable and friendly. The value was exceptional (despite the $15+ “CovidSafetySurcharge,” which made me laugh; but they did take safety seriously). I highly recommend Root Down!

Vegan options were pretty lack luster. Was told kitchen closes at 9 for our 8:30 reservation. Was told manager was gonna stop by but never showed up. My chicken was ok seemed too dry for this level of price. Will I be back .. of course but not in a hurry..

Nice ambiance, good service and plate presentation, however for the price, I expected much better food. The devils on horseback were underwhelming with their spin on the usual dish, the roasted chicken ($$$) was an extremely small serving and the flavor/texture was not up to expectations. The highlight was the banana pudding for desert which was amazing, however for a $140 dollar meal (for 2) I have eaten much better elsewhere.

The food was excellent as it always is. Our server forgot our salad, the main course arrived, table much too small for all the plates to fit. Ended up eating salad on main course plates. The restaurant wasn't super busy to be forgetting a plate.

Being limited to an hour and a half was a little bit of a challenge for a party of four in which we had not seen each other in such a long time. But we understand what the circumstances are.
