Fantastic food! Treating my nieces and nephews to a Back to College dinner and we all had a great time.
Masks and the amount of social distancing have no value there. Great food so I hope it is still around when all is normal.
Fantastic food and wonderful service. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. We ate at appropriately spaced tables outdoors and it was delightful since we were shaded by an umbrella and trees. I highly recommend.
Excellent food. House wines are excellent.
There were four of us dining and we all ordered different dishes so we could share samplings of all. The tender fiilet mignon was excellent, squid linguine with mussels were done perfect, gumbo was as good or better than in New Orleans. We also had the fried okra and the delicious conecuh dip with their homemade chips. We did have to ask for more chips as we love the freshness of these chips. Our entire experience was great.
Thank You so much!! Please let me know when you are in town again we would to offer you a free appetizer
Great food and service!! Will be back!
Service was poor. Got orders wrong and server was not attentive.
Overall, a great experience. It was a little loud inside so we opted to eat on the patio right about sunset, which was very nice. Service was friendly and timely, with the only meaningful drawback being the pace and quality of bar service. Our Conecuh Dip appetizer was great, my wife's scallops were outstanding and my linguine mussels were very good.
Thanks so much for the experience. We'll definitely be back.
Made a reservation. Show up to find the restaurant had already closed for the evening. We had been traveling all day, stopped in Birmingham to meet a friend for dinner, were starving, and by the time we found out they were closed it was too late to find another open restaurant.
Food was great and the mimosas were soo good!
What a truly pleasant surprise this turned out to be. Went to dinner with a party of four and got to try many things. The appetizers and the food were all outstanding! We had a very interesting waiter who had visited 36 countries and kept us entertained. On top of all that the location was very old, Art Deco room with high ceilings in a depression era hotel , which added to the charm
I will definitely come back again, perhaps for my daughters graduation.
Discovered upon arriving that Sunday brunch is now a buffet. I am not a fan of that style of serving particularly now with potential health concerns. I enjoy the restaurant and will return for dinner when I can order from menu. I won’t come back for brunch with a buffet.
Hi 5thtimediner! Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback; we appreciate your continued patronage. You asked, and we listened: we're pleased to announce the return of a la carte menu service for brunch, effective March 14th! In addition to the buffet, our menu features our classic Chicken & Waffles, PB&J, Ancho Caesar, and R&R Cheeseburger, as well as new Gulf Omelette & R&R Omelette...all cooked to order.
Food and service were very poor.
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend! You won’t regret it!
Way too loud food quality was not very good. Since the new chef and management is there ist went south
Cool place with good vibe but, unfortunately, food is not good
The amazing staff accommodated us although our large party was super late for our reservation due to the Mercedes Marathon. The service was friendly and their brunch buffet was fantastic - particularly the beignets. We will be back!
The food was so good. Great atmosphere .
It was fine. No issues. Just not a WOW moment. Food was good, maybe a bit too salty.
This is a fantastic spot in Birmingham to grab a delectable dinner. The atmosphere is splendid, being located within a 100 year old building itself is a treat. The service is phenomenal and the food was wonderful.
Food is AMAZING! Brunch buffet exceeded expectations by far. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!!
Worst meal I’ve ever had in Birmingham. We went for Valentine’s Day. We were there for more than 3 hours for dinner. All of the prix fixe courses were cold and not edible. The only recourse given was a $50 gift card, which was not nearly enough for a $250 meal. I was embarrassed for the restaurant and really mad I had to pay over $200 for a meal we didn’t even eat. We have been repeat customers to R&R for brunch for many years. This was embarrassing.
Valentines Night - the short menu did not speed anything up. Didn’t get a drink for 40 mins and at table for over an hour before 1st course was served. Not up to Birmingham standards. Should be ashamed.
Took my wife for Valentine’s Day. Would have liked to have seen a normal menu but were led to believe the menu was set for Valentines. It took almost three hours to get through the meal. It’s hard to pay 200.00 bucks for slow service and cold food. Great old building but I will not be back!
Valentine’s Day 2020... their own personal Fyre Festival. It was so awful that we were convinced something terrible and extreme must have happened to throw their whole night off. However, upon reading reviews from NYE and finding several from people with nearly identical experiences as ours, we realized it was not just an off night. Like other diners, our night included a 45 minute wait to be seated (after seeing a couple without a reservation get seated), hour+ delays to get any food and then sub par food from the fixed menu. Multiple times we considered paying for what we had received and leaving but ultimately stayed with hopes it would improve. The manager was very apologetic and actually comped our entire meal in addition to providing a gift card, but seeing so many other reviews like this tells me they need a major overhaul and I don’t think we’ll return! To be fair, our waitress was very nice.
Horrible! Had keep asking for drinks, reminder on salad and then two hours in we still hadn’t gotten main course.
Food was awful.
Food wasn’t great, and it took forever. Over 3 hours and still didn’t get all of our courses. Ticket was incorrect.
Waiter was friendly but still very busy with other tables.
The Place is great. Very nice old school charm in an awesome venue. The food was way better than I expected. One of the better steaks I've had in Birmingham. My wife and I went for Valentines dinner and the staff was well prepared and outstanding.
Loved the amazing Valentines Day menu and wine pairing. Delicious and wonderful service!!!!
Fresh seafood perfectly cooked. Unique flavorful appetizers and great bartending.
Birmingham Estate Sales held our crew appreciate at this lovely affair!!
Amazing vibe and service. Chicken was very dry but drinks were phenomenal.
Overpriced and the food was atrocious. Probably the worst steak I ever had. It was literally burnt.
Good. Missed being outside due to cold.
Had Sunday brunch here to celebrate a birthday. Arrived early but were seated immediately. Despite the fact that it was quite crowded, the place was a *lot* quieter than our last visit for dinner a while back. Addition of some artwork on the walls may have helped buffer sound a bit. Anyhow, I was disappointed to find that the lovely brunch menu I'd previewed online has been replaced with a buffet. The buffet did not have as many interesting choices as the menu; I had so looked forward to the beet carpaccio as well as the macadamia beignets! However, a nice selection of more run-of-the-mill options was served, and it was all quite tasty. A bit pricey at $28, but satisfactory. The drinks were tasty and our server, Ashley, was personable and attentive. On the whole, a good experience. But I do urge the management to bring back the regular brunch menu.
It took awhile for the food to come out but the food was excellent and the service was really nice making it an all around enjoyable time. I would like to thank the restaurant for the complimentary chips and dip as well as the dessert that was given to my date and I to make up for some time spent preparing the food.
There were some issues with our food - had to send back a dinner that came so much later than all the other meals. The bill was not corrected and that had to be readdressed. The wait time for service/food was not optimum.
The rating is low since we did not get our main course before we had to leave for the theater. We ordered about an hour before we had to leave. We did get a salad which was very good but no idea if he rest of the meal would compare. There was a wedding party in the ballroom so my impression is that the kitchen cannot handle events and regular diners at the same time. Our server was great.
I have always been able to count on Roots & Revelry for a reliable and consistent brunch but was disappointed today. Changing to a buffet-style set-up was NOT enjoyable. I was hosting a business brunch and was disappointed with my guests having to make their own Bloody Marys and their own plates of food. It was distracting and took away from the tone of the meal and disrupted the flow of conversation. If I wanted a buffet for brunch I could have gone to a hotel dining room or the club. Please consider going back to actual table service. I won't be back for brunch until you do. Thank you.
Dear Mona, we private messaged you, but, just want to clarify for the public that our Saturday/Sunday Brunch Buffet is absolutely intended to be "full service". Our servers and bartenders are ALWAYS happy to make any of our guests plates or drinks for them according to their preference. Thank you for appreciating our previous brunch menu(s). We would love for you to give our full table service brunch experience another opportunity and please keep us in mind for Dinner or Friday lunch as well!
