When you settle in, you come home to roost. A roost is a place that feels comfortable. It’s a place where we all have a little something in common. It’s a place that takes a community and builds it into a home. That’s the spirit of ROOST Restaurant located in the new, exciting and vibrant community of NOMA Square on Main Street in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Situated next to the Hyatt Regency Greenville, ROOST is a casual restaurant featuring the best fresh local bounty that the Piedmont has to offer. Our focus is on giving the community a place to eat local, organic, and seasonal food of the highest quality, cooked with care, and at an honest price. Roost will offer guests a one-of-a-kind dining experience including outdoor seating in NOMA Square, an open kitchen with ringside seating along the Kitchen Counter, an open-air bar area, and a Harvest Table where guests can work with the chef directly to build their own meals.

I made an online reservation at the Roost for 3 for Sunday, March 17 at 12:15. When we arrived, the receptionist could not find our reservation. Luckily, the manager was able to accommodate us by the bar. It took a while for a server to wait in us, as it quite crowded but it gave us a chance to relax and talk before eating. Great place for a Sunday brunch. Food is very good.

Our server was wonderful but the food was disappointing. I ordered the meatloaf, one of their signature dishes, and it was over cooked and dried out. Our server nicely offered to bring me something else. While I did order something else, I sat with nothing to eat while my dinner companions ate their meals. They were all done before my replacement meal was served. Not a great dining experience

Roost is one of those cool downtown places that’s still approachable. The food is great (get the lunch buffet it’s lovely), ambience is chill, and the staff are wonderful. Parking is no longer validated but it’s fine. Great place for a midday getaway or lunch meeting.

It was Valentine’s Day, so obviously hoping for a more special experience than normal. My wife and I have dined there a couple times before and it’s usually been great.

This time though, our waitress recommended a very girly gin and sweet drink to me, which was not ideal. She did fix it, but it was a poor/lazy suggestion to start the night.

My meal of angus steak was amazing, but my wife got the pork belly tacos and they were

Great service and good food. I brought customers here from Boston and was proud to show them this part of Greenville. I am glad I chose Roost as to bring them, noise level was very low and we were able to have normal conversations without raising our voices or asking to repeat.

This is a hotel restaurant, so try to be seated on the righthand side of the restaurant away from the hotel atrium. It's fairly noisy near the atrium overlooking the bar.

I would recommend for their Sunday brunch. For a nice dinner, it was low on the list of places to return. Food was not at a consistent temperature. Not a stellar dinner. Somewhat felt cruiseshipish. We have eaten there several times for brunch and a quick bite to eat - will return for that most likely.
