Great menu and creative dishes. We will miss Rootsock while they finish their renovation and look forward to the expanded space reopening in October. It's going to be awesome!

Dined here many times and the food and service are consistently good. Unfortunately we seated across from an overly loud and obnoxious birthday party. Well over the top.

Started with a pimento cheese appetizer that was more than ample for two, Bistro steak for me. As good as if not better than some very nice “steak houses”. Trout for my wife. She is picky about fish but loved her entree. Cream brûlée trio for dessert for me - delicious. She lover her carrot cake Whoopi pie, brought 1/2 home. Made the mistake of ordering a dessert each!

The appetizers were good, we had the meat plate and the beef empanadas. Had some issues with my wife's main dish coming out way before mine. She ate 3/4 of her meal before mine arrived incorrect. They had to cook me another plate and it came out way after she was done. They gave us a free dessert of blueberry cobbler, but it was so sour and runny with no crust. We did not enjoy or eat the cobbler. This was my first time there, maybe it was an off night, but I will give it a try another day.

Awesome neighborhood gem! Our second time back and it was better than the first! Great waiter and we explored a bit more of the menu. I am glad to hear they are expanding, sad it will need to shut down for a month to do so. I can't wait to come back and try and the new spot and expanded restaurant!

This place lived up to everything we had heard! The roasted octopus and Georgia mountain trout were incredible! And, we loved the opportunity to buy Caymus wine by the glass!

We've eaten at Rootstock on countless times but never tried the brunch until today! The biscuits and gravy and shrimp and grits were both amazing dishes full of flavor!

Even though our waitress told us our main courses would be brought out at different times one person's came out 20 minutes before our entrees showed up. She finished her chicken before our entrees came out of the kitchen. When asked for ketchep for the fingerling potatoes I was told they didn't have ketchup. What restaurant does not have ketchup. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was pretty good.

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Though advertised as a date night venue, there was a birthday party of 30 extremely loud adults directly next to our 2 top. Sadly, my our meals arrived 10 minutes apart from each other which made for an awkward stand still. Not planning on returning for the food/environment.. but the wine was delicious and the waiter was very helpful especially when he helped stableize our wobbling table.

Diamond did a great job and had a great personality! The steak was cooked to perfection but we were not super impressed with the chefs board or the pimento cheese
