We had the 5 course tasting menu. Each course was amazing. I don't eat beef so they happily substituted a fish dish for me. Our server was attentive and clearly loved her job. Excellent cocktails. Just a wonderful experience in every way.

Absolutely fantastic. We had the degustation with wine pairing and it was sensational. The staff were so attentive and natural, and made our night so special for the guest of honor. The Sommelier was very informative whilst not going too high level. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough!!

Without question, Rootstalk is the finest restaurant from Summit county to Aspen. Chef Matt is creative and fresh. I’ve tried almost all menu items and they are all simply amazing. The wine list is a good one and the bartenders are mixing experts. Finally, at a time where service feels off everywhere, the staff at Rootstalk are “all in”. They know the menu and the support that they have for one another is refreshing. Congratulations to Patrick who runs the front of the house. Excellent!

Thomas is an absolute asset to Rootstalk. The whole service team is spot on. We love their hospitality. The fall drink menu is inventive and tasty. The pork tenderloin is one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten - every bite was a combination of different fall flavors. Everything we ate was sensational. One more thing we appreciate - the wine list is both interesting and has a nice range of price points. The Som is very helpful, too. She’s another great part of the dining experience.

The entire staff could not be more friendly. The food is delicious and well planned. As regulars, we love the new fall menu. The tortellini app is wonderful. Ask for a side of toasted bread to soak up the sauce. My husband loved the sea bass and I had the cauliflower schnitzel. All the flavors in each dish marry so well. Rootstalk is our favorite restaurant in Breckenridge!

We celebrated our anniversary here and had the seven course chef tasting menu. The service was extraordinary, our servers were very attentive and went above and beyond (bonus: a congratulatory card signed by all the staff wished us a happy anniversary, along with a special “happy anniversary” menu and a complimentary toast with bubbly rosé to start the evening). The food surpassed every expectation and was beyond fantastic (and omg so filling; we had to take most of our 6th course and our 7th dessert course to-go!). The entire experience was worth every penny and made this special occasion even more enjoyable.

This was a birthday celebration with girlfriends that gather once a year - this year was Breckenridge.

From the moment we walked in for our 6:00 reservation, we knew we made the right selection. Our table was still occupied, so we were invited to wait in the bar area. A server appeared with four glassed and a water for us immediately … a lovely gesture especially traveling in just that day and being extra dehydrated with the elevation.

A moment later, Madison appeared, introducing herself as our server and offering us four small glasses of sparkling wine to begin our birthday celebration dinner. Again, an amazing touch of hospitality. A few minutes later we were seated at a table by the window and had an amazing assortment of soup (seasonal bisque), harvest salad and the homemade tortellini dish.

We each enjoyed our cocktails and wine during our meal as well. Our dessert choice was a tough one, but we settled on the cheesecake - also amazing. It was brought out with a special decorated plate with Happy Birthday written on it) and we of course got great photos throughout the evening.

We all remarked that the service by Madison was not only seamless, but that it truly felt like the entire staff was checking in us throughout. Highly, highly recommend Rootstalk to anyone visiting Breckenridge, you will not regret it!

Would recommend this place 10/10. The head chef is innovative and creative with everything he makes. He trained under on the best chef’s in Colorado for nearly 10 years and it really shows. They take their business very seriously down to the very last detail and it really makes all the difference.
