    Food is fabulous but the service was very very slow. We had to wait 10 minutes just to get greeted by the server. Great place if you’re not in a rush, but not if your hungry!

    I took my bff out for her birthday. She had never been to Root Down but I have. We had the Sunday special, and it was mostly amazing. The entrée, and the appetizers (we added one), and the adult beverages were awesome. We both marveled at the chef’s prowess. The deserts on the other hand, left quite a bit to be desired. Hers was supposed to be a peach dessert, there was more bread than peaches and only a tablespoon of the ice cream didn’t make up for the overall dryness. They served me the same dessert with bananas instead of peaches, but I ordered banana cream pie because I need gluten-free. So they had to fix that. Not sure who wasn’t paying attention. The cream pie was OK. Next time I may just order off the menu, because all the things on the Sunday special were on the menu, and then just skip dessert. Our waitress was very attentive but left before we were served. The young man who replaced her was not, and we had to flag him down a couple of times to get his attention.

    Tiffany was great: professional, chill and efficient. The place felt breezy, calm and comfortable. We loved the risotto, Thai curry soup (sooo yum) and lamb sliders. The chicken two ways was so-so (not much flavor and not as filling as we hoped). Two thumbs up on the banana creme pie (one down on the brittle that tasted burnt).

    The food, service, ambiance was outstanding! We didn't care for the background music but we also don't pick restaurants based on background music. So overall the experience was fantastic. Root Down is my favorite Denver restaurant and I wanted to take my parents to experience it as they were in town visiting from Southern CA. They loved it too!

    Ordered the Arepas and Devil on Horseback appetizers. Packed with flavor! For the mains we ordered the lamb and the gnocchi with scallops, and both were excellent. Root Down continues to deliver good flavors, service and atmosphere. Looking forward to the next time.

    We shared several small plates and really enjoyed each one. The flavors were distinctive, and the presentation was beautiful. Loved the option for relatively "open air" seating even inside the restaurant, since the large doors stayed open, and a breeze came through. Expensive but worth the price.
