New Year's Eve Special Menus & Offers
Root Down will be offering a special New Year's Eve menu to ring in the new year! Menu TBD.
Welcoming and lively, Root Down did not disappoint. The menu is creative and everything we ate was stellar. Stand outside include the watermelon gaspatcho, beet salad, and diver scallops.
Food was good, but a bit over priced. Patio is not heated, so if dining outdoors, bring appropriate clothing for the fall evenings!
I’ve never had a bad experience here. One of my favorites!
Great food, drinks and service. Never had something I haven’t liked here. Definitely recommend!
Sunday brunch- great vibe, excellent food and loved the blood orange mimosa.
Food was amazing!!! Everything else was a bit disappointing.
We love it here it was fabulous as always!!
Great food! I might be getting old (haha) but the majority of dinning guest were for young. (20’s)
Pretty solid menu, loved that the seasonal offerings push you out of your comfort zone a little bit.
Every dish was a different take than I’be had before. Would go again!!
We made reservation over a week in advance. We arrived and there was no table ready for us. They ended up seating the 5 of us outside at a 4 top.
There was no music! Other than that, love the vibe in there!
GF options are wonderful!!!
An interesting and unusual (in a good way) menu. At first glance one might think it too limited, but give it a chance. We had an early dinner, ate outdoors on their lovely raised patio, ordered 5 items: 2 soups, the burrata, rockfish tom kha and chicken two ways. Everything was delicious. We also loved the harvest margarita. If you've been thinking about trying RD but haven't yet, I suggest you do. My only hesitation in recommending is that I run the risk I won't be able to get a table the next time.
Nice atmosphere on the patio.
Good food, well presented.
We love root down and decided to have a weekend staycation in the neighborhood and have dinner here. Our server, Taylor, was perfect, our food was delicious, and our date night was filled with lots of laughs. Will def be back again!
Great dinner date night with my wife.
Great food, great service. Almost always packed but not too much of a problem.
Great food and service! Totally recommended and convenient.
Great food and great service in a modern and comfortable setting. We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely meal.
Good mix of really tasty food, beautifully presented.
Really surprised at how great the food was. The flavours were amazing and I woke up this morning wanting more! Really recommend this restaurant if you love good food.
Service was great too. Well done to the Chef!
The menu always looks a bit boring, but then the food comes and it's bursting with flavor. One of our absolutely favorite restaurants in Denver area.
Great food and service as always overall except the RootDown Splash or whatever the Root Down veggie plate is called would be better served with bread than the et cracker.
Fabulous service, amazing food! Would 100% recommend!
I would say it was nice and as far as experience for me it’s average but good average. It’s a nice chill uneventful place to eat. Presentation of food is pretty. Service was good and she was very kind.
Love the vibe but service is always a little lacking. Forgot coffees, took awhile for the bottle of wine to be delivered. Kept credit cards for 10 mins. Needed refills on water..
Al was great server.
Food & cocktails great.
Caught fireworks from the ballpark
Our food was excellent. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars is that when we sat down for our 7pm reservation the hostess who showed us to our table told us that there was another party that had the table reserved 2hrs and 20 mins after us so we would need to vacate the table by then. It felt like a very unnecessary thing to say, as 2hrs and 20 mins is plenty of time to get a long dinner in without being rushed in the least. While I respect that they need to accommodate all reservations, it just felt a little rude for her to say to us and made us feel very conscious of long we were there when we really didn't need to be. That aside, food was excellent and we would certainly go back.
Best vegetarian dishes in Denver! I am not a meat eater, but my dinner dates said the chicken and scallops were delicious.
We have been to Root Down before and are never disappointed. It was our choice to celebrate our anniversary and it was a great choice
Loved it, great food, great service - will definitely go back 😊
The menu makes the restaurant appear to be 5/5 star restaurants but then you find out that the food is over seasoned and over cooked and doesn’t do the menu justice.
Root Down never disappoints! Everything is delicious, staff and service are always pleasant, attentive, and thoughtful! Thanks for a great meal!
LOVE Root Down - never fails to deliver a great meal with exceptional service. The food is top notch and always incredibly creative.
Awesome vegetarian options!
as a vegan its hard to find restaurants with a good selection of options, but they had tons of vegan plates and choices that could be modified. We ordered a selection of small plates and every single dish was amazing! Staff were nice, atmosphere was lovely. Look forward to coming back when we visit Denver again
Have been here at least 5+ times & Root Down staff/food always hits the spot.
Service $ food was amazing!
Nice, helpful staff and delicious plates. Wine list was good as well.
