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.

It was our first time and we’re pleasantly surprised. My mother in law especially stated that she can hear better in your restaurant. Usually we have to repeat every word, bc the music is too loud. Thank you for a great dinner experience.

Morgan was a great server- the hostess was awesome, was able to be flexible and move us to outdoor seating on a beautiful day- staff friendly and accommodating and food was great quality- wings are some of the best in town and salmon was cooked perfectly

It was Mother's day so I guess the young children could not be expected to be quiet.
Food was a disappointment, especially the meats, could not enjoy the beef 'chewy'.

Sorry for this review...you asked.

Overall a great experience. Being brunch I would have liked to see more breakfast egg options other than omelette and scrambled eggs. I had asked if the had eggs Benedict, as it is my favorite, and was told yes when I made the reservation but there weren't any. The lunch side had great options and the waffles were insanely good. Make reservations and come hungry!

We drove down from Charlotte, NC for Easter brunch. Our first time eating at Roost. Definitely a great choice! I wouldn't change a thing. I believe Jessica was our server. She kept our drink glasses full and was always close by if we needed anything. It was a great experience!

Easter Brunch. The breakfast foods were fine. The ham that I was looking forward to was inedible. It was tough. Swimming in some kind of fluid and tasteless. The sweet potatoes were inedible . They had a weird spice to them that tasted like oregano. The dessert presentation was nice. I had a similar experience on thanksgiving. I think this will be my last holiday visit

Impressive restaurant - beautiful fountain outside and lovely to sit outside when the weather is good. Food is good and I appreciate the vegetarian choices as a change of pace. Not on the Halls level, more casual but a good choice when in Greenville.

Open table messed up our reservations. Thankfully I had a screen shot of the confirmation and the staff was kind enough to make arrangements for our party in a timely manner. Fiod was good but has gone downhill since we last fined there two years ago. The cheese/meat board was a joke. 4 small slices of cheese and the crostini was just buttered sliced bread. This would be fine for $8 not $15. We had good service and love the patio.

They were ill-prepared for the crowd related to a concert at nearby Bon Secours Arena. We waited way too long for our meal, and when it arrived, it looked like it was very hastily tossed onto the plate - no presentation. At least the manager did the right thing by comping the meal, but this place was a real disappointment. Given their close proximity to the Peace Center and Bon Secours, they should be prepared for dinner rushes. The food was decent, though.

Food was mediocre at best, perhaps me expectations were set high.

Cost was not worth what we paid.

Location and ambiance were the only real positives.

Good wine menu.

Roost has an awesome brunch. They will make your omelets, and bring it to your table. They have something for everyone, no matter your diet. Awesome value, and I would definitely be back!
