Dined early; great service. Very good menu. In busy area of Gaslamp District so lots of competition. Highly recommend.

Pretty ok brunch spot. Service was really good. Lots of cackling chicks drinking bottomless mimosas which raised the noise level to around a 30 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Cinnamon Honey latte was great.

Had a 7 dinner reservation for a Friday night (made the morning of), had no trouble making it or getting in! Definitely is pretty loud, the restaurant is really cool. Service was good, food was even better.

The Americans rustic with nods to eclectic and quirky charm matches their wonderful menu. A fantastic environment for a great meal and conversation. Will happily return on my next visit to SD.

A bunch of friends and I got together and made reservations. Overall a good experience. However, my advice would be to reserve upstairs in the patio. The ambiance is way better.

The Rustic Root was delicious! Arrived early to have a drink at the rooftop bar and were blown away by the basil cocktail.

The ribeye and lobster pappardelle pasta were to die for!

We picked this place as a last minute brunch spot.
Our seat preference was accommodated as well as our dietary restrictions.
We both had a bunless burger with a fried egg on top. My friend doesn’t like yolks and they were kind to just to fried egg whites for her which was so nice.
We also didn’t want the fries and both received a generous amount of mixed greens instead.
Service was quick. The food was spectacularly delicious! I would most definitely stop by again when I’m back in San Diego.

Most of the food we ordered was not as expected. Low quality ingredients with prices of high quality food. Don’t think I’ll be going back. Decent service.
