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.

We went for Sunday brunch and the food was fabulous. We had great service, too. Favorites were the collard greens, mac n' cheese, salad bar, desserts, and drinks!

It was fine ... decent food ..nice atmosphere..just not "wow!".. tell a friend you gotta go there .
Best part for me is we had a big party and we were seated right away on a Saturday night without a long wait .

We came to Greenville to take our son out for a Saturday night meal treat. He lives on campus and is two weeks away from graduation. We had a very good experience. The food was delicious and we received service with a smile. We ordered different dishes and passed them around to taste. It was a little pricey for our typical meal budget, but I am willing to pay a bit more to know (which they state on their menu), that they use many organics and are aware of where their meat is sourced from. We would return again.

We love that you all had such great vegetarian dishes... We were so impressed with how good it tasted.. We are not vegetarians but we love to eat that way much of the time. My brother and his wife are vegetarian and they loved it too! So will come back again.

It was our anniversary and we wanted to celebrate it in good place. We ordered meat plate - was good, smoked rabbit - was too salty and over spiced, scallops - over grilled and not tasty side. Wine was good and location is good. Price - 130$ too much for such food.

The Roost continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville for special occasions. The price of Sunday brunch seems a little high ($20) for the value received. The best thing for this visit is that it was not too crowded.

Waitress, did not tell us what the specials were. We had to hear from a couple beside us. She kept forgetting things we asked for. Example, we asked for straws and she only gave one to my husband. Why didn't she offer one to me??? My husband's salmon was raw inside. Waitress was just very unpleasant and not friendly at all. We are a African American couple and we felt she catered to the Caucasians customers and paid more attention to them. Just my opinion!!! We spent $100 for awful service and sub standard food!

My husband and I were very pleased with our choices, meatloaf with bacon jam and fried chicken with sage dumplings. I also loved the pepperjack grits. Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful and we valued her recommendations.

We went at 6 PM on Easter Sunday. They only had a buffet style food and it was mostly left over from their Sunday brunch and was terrible. It must have sat there since lunchtime. We sat outside and I had to go in myself to find a waiter. He never came out to ask us if we needed anything, so I had to go inside to hunt for the check. They apologized and comped one of the meals. . I left a $5 tip for a $100 check which was $5 more than they deserved. With all the great restaurants in Greenville , they won't be around long. Don't waste your time here/

Roost was a perfect meeting place for an informal business meeting that included spouses and guests that are new to the area.

The farm to table menu highlighted the freshness of Greenville and the Upstate.

We chose Roost for the locally sourced food. The food was very good; I had the scallops and risotto. Delicious. Ate every bite, which is unusual for me. Drinks were also quite good; they had my bourbon of choice, and the waitress knew what I was ordering.

The service was great, very attentive. We never had to wait for anything. Very positive experience overall.

Also really appreciated the location. After eating there, we walked around the downtown area, and stopped at the Marble Slab for ice cream. Also highly recommend that, especially Salted Caramel Cake

We ate at your Sunday brunch, could have had a little more variety of food, perhaps some seafood like smoked salmon, even a white fish filet. A little pricey for what our selections were.

Do not bypass this spot because it part of a hotel, food selection was varied, prepared well and exceptional in taste, I had the scallops and give the chef a 5* rating. Cooked and seasoned perfectly, will return to other great items on menu.

The food was very good. I gave service 3 stars because of the slowness of the bar service. It was unacceptably slow. The wait staf was not as attentive as it could have been, but without knowing the number of servers per capital, it’s hard to give an accurate review. Overall, it was a nice evening.

Went to Roost to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. I had the meatloaf which was very good while the birthday three bean quinoa meatballs with zucchini noodles. The meat loaf came with a nice marinara type sauce and I chose the mac & cheese on the side. The three bean meatballs was also very good. Both plates provided us with generous food portions. Service was excellent - dining room was not that busy. I used the valet parking of the Hyatt or you can locate parking on the street or in local garages.

We went on a belated Valentine’s Day date and everything was amazing. We received some great wine and beer recommendations for our food and even got talked into dessert - it didn’t disappoint. We had a booth, and although we were between a lot of other tables it still felt very intimate. If you haven’t been, go! you’ll love it like we did.
