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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
