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 Greenville has to offer. Our focus is on giving the community a place to eat local and seasonal food of the highest quality, cooked with care, and at an honest price.

It was the little things that just made this a place we would not return to. Appetizer chips and beer cheese dip came with mostly crumbs, rather than full-size chips. Butcher board charcuterie seemed to have the same cheese 3 times instead of the 3 cheeses listed on the menu. While the capicola was great, the prosciutto was almost non-existent (small cuts and very few pieces). Dinner entrees and sides were ok, (the garlic green beans were a tremendous standout), but came out lukewarm at best. As we chose to sit outside on their wonderful patio on a pleasant night, the food got cold pretty rapidly. Our server (Bryant) was pleasant, helpful in selecting beers, etc. All in all, we likely will choose another Main Street Greenville eatery to try next.

Awesome, as always. We have been to Roost countless times and have yet to have a bad experience....whether dinner for two or celebratory brunch for 20. Staff is professional, courteous, and friendly. This is a family favorite spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Great service and foods before we took on a comedy show at Bon Secours! Even though they were short staffed, the employees and servers were awesome and courteous. Food was on point and so were the drinks! Thanks as always Roost...we will be back!

Four people dining together. One of us got shrimp and grits. They were dried up on one side and too soupy on the other. One of us ordered a side of Brussels Sprouts and never received them. The other two of us were good with ours. Service was slow.

Roost is a great restaurant that provides an inviting atmosphere with outdoor seating option. Our server, Crow, provided excellent service! The food was delicious, 2 of our orders were not made to order correctly but easily fixed.

We had a lovely dinner at Roost. The outside seating is wonderful in September- perfect temperature and the fountain provides a soothing sound element. My husband and I both enjoyed our dinner, thanks to the suggestions of Darcy, our delightful server. The pork tacos appetizer was enough as a meal for me, and they were yummy! Thanks, Roost!

I had made a reservation which once we arrived realized was a good move. I requested a patio table once we arrived and luckily the floor manager was able to accommodate as the view and ambiance are much better there than inside. Our drink order was taken shortly after we sat and then about 10 minutes later our food order was taken. 10 minutes later our food arrived and still hadn't received our drinks. Another 10 minutes later our waitress brought our drinks apologizing that the bar had literally just made them. Except for that, we really didn't see her much but we didn't necessarily need her either. Understanding they seemed short staffed, our orders weren't delayed as much as they could have been. My dish was a little salty but overall tasted very good.

Great night out at Roost! Great environment and service. Very attentive server. I had the shirt and grits which I thought was excellent (with a healthy portion size). Another member of the party had the chicken “not” pie and it was good, but just ok. Overall a nice experience.

Not what was expected from the reviews. I would say mediocre at best. Pretty much typical hotel restaurant food. Overpriced and tasteless.

I have been here for lunch a number of times, that in and of itself, says it’s a place I have enjoyed. Good value for good food with good service. Not a five star restaurant, but a solid place. We decided to recommend it for a dinner with another couple. Dinner was a whole different story. Service was terrible. So slow. Had to flag our waitress down every time we needed anything. 2 entrees came out almost 10 minutes after the first 2. One of the second orders to come out was wrong. One beer order was served literally over 10 minutes before the other when they were both ordered at the same time. Never cleared any plates until we asked them to. (Appetizer plates were left on the table after entree plates were served and we had no room left on the table). 2 of the 4 entrees we’re actually quite tasty. It was actually the 2 higher priced dishes that were hardly touched. Because of the good lunch services I’ve had, hopefully, this was just an off night, but it will be a while before I try dinner there again.

Quite busy so the service was somewhat slow, but OK. Food was good as usual, although the buffet (which we were surprised they had did not have as much selection as in the past. Still, nice to eat out on the patio with fresh air.

My friends and I came here for a enagement celebration. The resturant itself was very nice inside and we had a great server who was very attentive. However, the food was just ok. I would call it "upscale hotel food." The pizza that my friends ordered looked like it came from the freezer section at the grocery store.

Our waitress was very short at first and took 10 mins to greet us. Her disposition got better as meal did. I know personally how hard it is to be full staffed right now but as much as we need to patient and kind as do the staff. Overall I really enjoyed Brunch and the atmosphere on the deck.

Just visiting for the weekend and stayed at the Hyatt. Roost is the restaurant which is attached to the hotel so it was an easy decision to head there for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to have such an amazing dinner (shrimp and grits)at a hotel restaurant. Not only was the service great, the live music was awesome! We will most definitely go back.

Disappointing. The bartender/ waiter was excellent and attentive. That is the best I can say. Took an hour to get food at lunch and they we not all that busy. Who would have thought a burger, flavorless chicken sandwich and club sandwich would take an hour to prepare. When they arrived the fries were only warm and kinda limp. Would not recommend or return.
