The food was great. It was a beautiful evening to have an outside table. The only problem was that our reservation was for 8, and we didn't get seated until 8:20. Not huge, but not good. The reason we make reservations is so we don't have to wait.
Dirty restrooms, horrible service and just ok food.
The outdoor seating is great. Food was good but I found the menu a bit limited.
What a beautiful small city urban spot! The food was very good--my salad could have had a little more oomph (some nuts or fruit, perhaps)--and the Runner's Club was huge. But it was the open air patio and fountain that stole the show.
Seated in the back next to the bathroom despite requesting outside during the reservation, on the phone confirming the reservation, and on arrival. There was plenty of room outside both before and after our meal. Service was extremely slow and had to ask for things multiple times. Food took way too long for burgers, pizza, and ravioli. They seemed way understaffed.
We had reserved our table for 5 the night before where the only option for seating was “standard”. Our friends who arrived a few mins prior to us, reserved the day of and somehow managed to be seated outside. When my husband inquired about the outdoor seating where a table clearly seemed available outside, the Mgr rudely said what he needed to and blamed the system for making seating options available or unavailable. He then glared his eyes in such a threatening way it was uncomfortable, especially with my kids looking at his behavior back to us. His response could have been more customer friendly, but it was certainly far from that. Our server and the food were great. The Mgr on the other hand was a total jerk. He definitely needs to revisit customer service 101 again.
My Caesar salad was good. Very disappointed we couldn’t sit outside. Stuck in a bar area. Waiters were very friendly. Wouldn’t recommend.
My daughters birthday brunch
It was amazing
A group of us we’re celebrating a birthday. It was a great experience. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the atmosphere and beautiful weather. The service was great. They were accommodating g in splitting the checks and even split the birthday girl’s check in 7 parts so we could all treat!
It was ok, none of it was amazing. The garlic fries are not garlic fries, they are plain steak fries. I would expect garlic fries to be more like shoestring fries, so was surprised to get a plain serving of steak fries. Shrimp and grits were probably the best of the dishes we ordered, the burger was good too. Our waiter got pretty sidetracked, it took a loooong time for our appetizers and drinks to come. Probably a better place to go with the family than an adults-only dinner.
Very pleasant outdoor dining and service was excellent
great food and service! will definately be back! salads so fresh
The restaurant didn’t seem that busy and we were often sitting with empty drinks and dirty plates that could be cleared. Food was ok, nothing special at all. Great spot though for outdoor seating away from the crowded areas of downtown.
Great outdoor setting for a good meal. Was a perfect day for outdoors.
A wonderful place for outdoor dining. Good food at reasonable prices
Well done Roost. You never fail to impress. We had good drinks and tasty food. I appreciate their attention to detail and their emphasis on making sure we were all happy.
Great location. Service was spot on. Food was delicious.
Lots of great outdoor patio seating. Kind servers and great food. Will definitely go again.
I will continue to visit Roost for lunch and happy hour but their brunch menu needs some work. The food was just okay and service was bad.
Balsamic Chicken is incredible. Youll take some home too
The only drawback was it was a little cold, and the heaters didn’t really reach us where we were sitting on the patio. Everything else was great!
All around great experience! Great food and service! Excellent value! Definitely will be back!
We had four different entrees between the six of us, and everyone’s food was delicious! I had the hamburger, which was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. Our server( Paul) was so accommodating and attentive. Great experience!
Nice place downtown greenville area will b back
We got there for our 7:30 appointment . We saw a table that was empty outdoors but was told there was booked indoors so had to eat indoors . The appointment for the outdoor table was for 9 . That should have told us something
The Roost is very pretty inside . Our server seems rushed and disorganized . It took 15 minutes before he took our drink order . We ordered appetizers at same time
During the meal one of us knocked over a drink . We had to get up from the table to find our waiter to get him to wipe the table . He left the towels on the table for at least 30 minutes — but did bring a drink quickly
The main meal came roughly an hour - hour 15 after we ordered . The food was dried out . Seemed a long time for a couple of pizzas and a burger . I will say the app were well done . Just not the main meal .
Given the reviews I have to admit a disappointment . Have to hope an off night
This was our first time at Roost but it won’t be our last. The food was absolutely fantastic. Our waiter was very personable. They did a good job with keeping us socially distanced so we felt comfortable.
We came for dinner on our weekend trip to Greenville. They had a limited drink and dinner menu but had clear labels for gluten free and vegan options which was nice. They were busy but our service was great. Lots of food! It was a good experience overall.
Food was oversalted but otherwise good. Had to ask for coffee refill but service was acceptable.
Great stop for a nice after ½ marathon lunch! Cozy environment and great salad (and fries) definitely get the fries!
Took my son there for his 20th birthday. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. Food was amazing!
The Roost has historically been one of my go to places that provides delicious food and excellent service. This visit was NOT up to their usual standards. The hostess seemed clueless and never could correctly check us in so I kept getting text alerts during meal to report to her upon arrival even though we already had. The server was terrible - lackluster, no real personality and gave several incorrect statements about menu items when asked. She was not very attentive and failed to do a couple basic anticipatory things that would have made visit more pleasant and less annoying to have to keep asking for. First time I haven’t left the server my typical 30+% tip. Actually ended up speaking to the manager once I got home as I then received an email showing my reservation was cancelled, guessing due to hostess check-in errors. I do have to give props to the manager who was very receptive and interested in feedback so he could correct the issues for future - wish I’d taken the time to speak with him in person instead of leaving restaurant frustrated that my plus one drove almost two hours to meet me for such an average visit. Our food was delicious, just lacking all the great service that I’ve come to expect. Eating out may be to avoid meal prep for some people but for someone like me who can fix a great meal and knows about Importance of ambiance and accompanying service, I had a disappointing trip. Kudos again to manager who left me satisfied that it was a one off experience - I will be back!
Roost NEVER disappoints. We have been many times and have always had a fabulous meal. Mixed drinks are always perfect and craft beer selections are excellent. It's a lively crowd....not recommended if you want a quiet atmosphere.
One of our go to favorites. Always good food and good service. Highly recommend
Very good experience. Good steak and service!
The food was fabulous as always, but communication between waitstaff and kitchen had clearly broken down, and the order was never fully corrected. Will be confident of all being well by our next visit.
The service and food are always amazing! Favorite thing is their bottomless mimosa deal, perfect for any brunch!
Excellent service and food! Great Valentine's Brunch!
It took an hour to get our food, our server was great food quality very poor my side salad was just a huge pile of greens the burger had no flavor very bland. Would not go back.
Went with my daughters for dinner. Very nice experience in an unforced atmosphere. I imagine when to full capacity is very vibrant. Food was well made.
