Great food and ambiance! We were seated earlier than expected, and the food was great. There are some solid vegan options, but not too many.

We messed up our reservation and we were also late because of accidents on the interstate but despite being late they were able to accommodate us and we're very very easy to work with. The food was OK. I wish they had more vegetarian options considering it's a sustainable restaurant. I'm also not seeing much change from previous menus. It has been about a year or so since I've been there and I didn't see a lot of change. I'm on a

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
