Wonderful lunch at Roost to celebrate a birthday. Food and service were excellent. Scenery of downtown Greenville was an added plus.

It was our anniversary and we wanted someplace that was special and not to noisy. We sat outside right along the water feature. It was a beautiful day and the restaurant faces a courtyard just far enough off Main Street to not feel like your eating with the people passing by on the sidewalk. We shared an appetizer and the shrimp and grits. The food was as good as any I have ever had. The Shrimp tasted fresh and tender soaking in a rich and creamy sauce that was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and attentive and even brought us a dessert in honor of our anniversary. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a pleasant, romantic lunch. Be sure to sit outside along the fountain.

This was the first time we have ate at Roost and I will have to say is was a little disappointing. I had the NY Strip and first off it wasn’t cooked correctly as I asked for medium and it was medium rare. I did send the steak back and when she brought it back out it was med in some spots and med rare still in others. The steak had a lot of fat and was tough. Definitely not worth the $35 we paid for the steak. I would have expected a much better steak than what I received. I will say my husband had the ravioli and it was good.

Hostess tried to put us at an out of the way table. When we asked for a different one, she replied they had many reservations. BTW we had been reserved for 2 weeks. The server was only intermittently available. Food was terrible. However the ambiance and view was very good.

Roost has a nice outdoor patio and delicious food and cocktails. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which was some of the best shrimp and grits he's had. I had the pork chop, which was also very good (though slightly over cooked). We had a great evening there with good service. I chose it mostly because we prefer to eat outdoors due to the pandemic and they had a nice looking patio, but I was definitely impressed by the food and service.

Loved the outdoor patio. Stayed at the hotel next door and loved that we could walk out our side door for a quick drink and bite to eat. Very accommodating and drinks were creative and refreshing!

What’s the point of a reservation if you’re not going to get seated when and where you asked for.

They ran out of wings extremely early into the night. The service was not up to standards due to the fact our waiter had and enormous amount of tables to try to accommodate every party.

The phone wasn’t bad, but the service was terrible. I waited for 30 minutes from the time I asked for the check to when I had the receipt in hand. Our waiter was overwhelmed while he tried to manage the entire outdoor section, and make drinks behind the bar. Disappointed

Seated outside on patio. Asked to move to an outer table as 3 were open. We were told that they were all reserved for their VIP members (?) that requested those specific tables, and all would be arriving within 15 minutes. Fifty minutes later, as we were finishing our dinner, all 3 tables were still open. We went to Kilwins across the courtyard after dinner and watched as all 3 tables remained open for another half hour. Service was slow and spotty. No bread basket was offered or given. Food was just OK. Won’t be running back to dine at Roost anytime soon.

We had a reservation for a high top table near the windows because outside was booked. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to be given a table outside by the fountain! Our waiter was extremely friendly and polite (y’all young man with red hair, I cannot remember his name!!). We love eating there and it was the perfect date night. Thank you!!

We were in town on business and looking for a good outdoor opportunity. This looked promising. It was a beautiful evening and the outdoor covered seating area with a water feature overlooking a courtyard and active Main St. were perfect.

Food was very well prepared. Prices were reasonable. Service was good, the staff was pleasant and used appropriate PPE. A few miss-steps on side plates and a missing steak knife but we were having a leisurely evening off so it really didn't impact our experience.

Looking forward to stopping by again the next time I'm in Greenville.

Service and ambiance was great. All meals were sub par. Chicken was undercooked, carbonara was bland, steak came out under cooked and then came out unseasoned. The only good thing about the whole evening was the queso dip.
