    I’m a little disappointed bc I made notes in the system for open table bc it was a birthday. The person’s birthday wasn’t acknowledged nor did they do anything I asked in the open door system. What’s the point of making notes or writing anything if you aren’t going to respond or do them

    Came here for our anniversary dinner while staying at the Wyndham. Server was busy most of the evening helping a table of four gentlemen that were more into the wine list than we were apparently. They didn’t have mango for the watermelon tomato mango salad, so they tossed some pineapple chunks from a can into the salad without giving us the option of changing or canceling. The steak was good and cooked well. The mashed potatoes were pasty. Overall, for the cost, I would highly recommend that you avoid this place.

    Outstanding meal and service. Thorough enjoyed the chicken empanadas appetizer. I had the swordfish with coconut curry sticky rice and my husband had the Shrimp & grits. Both were delicious! We enjoyed our meal so much we made reservations for a second night this week!

    Excelente servicio, las recomendaciones por la mesera fueron las mejores. El pulpo sabroso y tierno. Las costillas se deshacen solas y estaban muy jugosas. Las peticiones especiales para mi niño de 2 años fueron atendidas de inmediato. Y los precios son asequibles, las cantidades de lo servido llenan las expectativas Excelente todo, volveremos

    Roots costal kitchen is a place you should definitely visit. It’s a rustic modern vibe, our server Edger was amazing! We had a simple dinner, pizza and loaded tater tots but it was one of our favorite at the Wyndham resort.

    Excellent menu and food. My family dined in twice and ordered riots on the go. My favorite meal was the octopus and the ribs were excellent. Also I had a veggie pizza that was really tasty. The banana bread and corn sundae deserts were innovative and delicious.

    Selection was not tremendous, but I have a swordfish dish that was excellent, albeit a tad dry. My husband had a fabulous steak. Service was perfunctory. Ambience was a little blah, what you would expect in a hotel restaurant. A little pricey, but typical for a nice resort restaurant.

    We ate here twice during our stay at Wyndham. It was quiet and the food was great. We at the smoked fish appetizer and margharita pizza the first time, and then came back to try the conch fritters, empanadas, and pizza again. Service was great and we highly recommend.

    We were greeted by a long line to check I. For our reservation. The hostesses were grumpy and seemed angry we were there. After being seated, we waited for about 15 min to be recognized by a server. This would be a continuing theme. We ordered drinks and an app. Waited a long time The waitress said she would check in our order and came back with the app. This pattern continues through the 2.5 hour meal. Food was good but not remarkable. Desert was the best part of the meal. OK for a hotel meal but not great given the lackluster service.

    We got the empanadas, tuna tacos, and the swordfish dish. The empanadas were definitely the best dish out of all of the dishes we ordered- the tuna tacos lacked flavor and the swordfish dish was also not very flavorful. The ambiance and service was good but the food was definitely not worth the money
