    Root Down is a wonderful restaurant. Everything we had for dinner was delicious. The beet salad had lovely beets, nuts and perfect dressing. My scallops were well cooked and had unique flavors. My husband said his short ribs were super tender and also had excellent flavoring. The staff were friendly and helpful but never overbearing. There are so many excellent items on the menu; it’s hard to choose.

    When we got there, they did not have a table even though we had a reservation. The hostess put us in a very cold corner of the bar which is first come first serve. No one wanted to sit there The bartender asked if we were waiting for a table. Lol. We did not have that choice. Food was good. But not sure why we made a reservation

    Root Down never disappoints! Such an incredible restaurant - we are so lucky to have it in our town. We met with friends from Boulder. It was their first time and they were nuts about it. I had the Tom Kha Rockfish - amazing! Wonderful service. All around perfect night.

    We celebrated an anniversary, new jobs, and a birthday all in one trip and were taken care of by the wonderful Sara. Everything was gluten free and divine and we cleaned each and every plate; each dish was well timed and coursed out, paired expertly with some delicious celebratory Prosecco (thank you so much!), inspiring flavors and techniques from food to cocktail, and every staff member was so warm and had kind things to say to us! The one thing that was curious to us was the $21 for two lamb sliders and sweet potato fries - they were certainly delicious and exciting but the price tag and serving size did catch our attention. Overall, a satisfying and impressive experience - 10/10 would do again :) thank you Sara and Root Down!

    Root DownResponded on November 17, 2022Hello, Thank you so much for your review and kind words. Anniversary, bday and new jobs all in one? What a night! Congratulations. Thank you for the feedback on our food and beverage, including the comment regarding pricing. I'm glad that Sara was able to facilitate a fun night for you. If you haven't tried it yet, our sister restaurant Vital Root offers great vegetarian and vegan options and is certified as Gluten Free. Hopefully you'll get a chance to visit. Sincerely, Danny Jacks

    This was by far the best dinner I’ve had in a very very long time. Literally art on a plate. We ordered several things and shared everything. We got the poblano gnocchi with steak, the rock fish, and the beet salad. I order beat salads everywhere and this was the best one I’ve ever had in my life. Our dessert was the ice cream sandwich my husband loved it, it was a little too sweet for me though. Even still the dinner was insanely delicious. And my cocktail was perfection. I don’t recall what the name was but it had bourbon in it.

    Great experience overall as usual. Just surprised when bill presented to see a surcharge. Server said it’s an inflation charge. No advanced warning so unhappy it was a surprise to us. We would not have had an issue with it (but do think the menu prices should be updated instead), just didn’t like it being sprung on us at the end.
