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.
It was not my first time and Root Down never disappoints. The food and service are always stellar.
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!
Everything was outstanding!!!! And amazing service!!!!!
love the lamb burger and signature cocktail. service is great perfect.
Food was fantastic, service was great, patio was lovely. I’ve been meaning to try this place for a while and my only regret is that it took me so long. Can’t wait to go back!
Don't know our waiter's name, he was tall and very fun. Amazing restaurants and parent company.
Always a good meal, service and experience at Root Down. Fresh, tasty and enticing assortment of food choices. We have meat eaters, vegans and vegetarians in our family, Root Down accommodates us all!
Such a nice Easter Brunch. Outdoor space was relaxing and our meal was amazing.
Wonderful ambiance and delicious food
Brunch/lunch was great. We appreciated that they adjusted our table time since the previous party ran over.
I invited a friend to celebrate her birthday for brunch. Root Down followed every protocol for safety during Covid. The servers were very professional and attentive. The food was excellent.
Outstanding. We ordered 3 small plates for 2 people and it was plenty of food. I'd go back tonight if I was still in Denver!
Food was delicious as always.
Wait staff was not as friendly as in the past and service was slow and at times unattentive.
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..
Our food and drinks were delicious. Love that it's sustainably and locally sourced!
Always love a stop at Root Down either for a meal or a cocktail. The service is great - the food is awesome and the drinks are top notch.
Great meal & service, was happy to sit down for a nice meal with my friend!
Brunch at root down is inspired and fun!
Always great food. We sat outside and had an excellent patio experience!
It was wonderful!
Fantastic! Great service, savory food, and pretty ambiance outside with the glass mini-huts!
Excellent staff and delicious food!
One of the best places to dine in Denver. The food is absolutely amazing and the staff is fantastic!
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.
Root Down is a regular “go-to” for various reasons...great to meet friends for a casual share meal In the bar area, or sit in the dining area for a more formal dinner! -
Always a good option for vegetarians as well...
Drinks are creative and great. Service is always Wonderful!
Everything was wonderful. The Chef experimented and we both enjoyed everything. So so good. It was a wonderful experience.
Our experience was excellent; service , food , cleanliness .... Thx
Amazing everything was so tasty and the service was timely which is necessary when trying to shove 4 courses down a gullet!
I will continue to return to this great restaurant. My boyfriend and I were celebrating an anniversary this weekend and couldn't have chosen a better place! Friendly staff and AMAZING food/drinks. Definitely a place that we love and frequent.
We're a repeat customer and love coming to Root Down. We celebrated our 3rd anniversary and had a great time!
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.
They really need to improve their gluten free bins, they were terrible. Everything else was great though
We were sitting outside in one of the clear plastic "houses" and had an incredible dinner. The wait staff are personable and attentive, and the food is sublime. Worth the drive to Denver.
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.
Horrific food. VERY upset. Could not get a bit down. I am let down. Meat so tough you cant eat it!
Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great atmosphere, stiff drinks and outstanding food!
