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 a beautiful morning outside on the patio. We had excellent service and the food was good. A nice place for Sunday Brunch, but very expensive. I'm not sure their website notes that Roost only offers the buffet for Sunday brunch. If you are not a big eater, $22 is a bit high.

Great list of bourbons to choose from, cocktails as well. My dish came out cold. Didn’t make a fuss about it, honest mistake. The waiter and manager did a great job and making it right. Food was delicious. Professional work from the front of the house.

We had a pre-concert Mom Daughter night out for a small group. Service was sub par as entire entrees were forgotten. Used to love the butcher board but it’s quality has gone way down. Overall the entire meal and experience were lacking. This used to be a go to place for us but we’ve given it too many 2nd chances.

Our server disappeared. We had to flag down another server to get a box and our ticket to go. As we were preparing to leave, our server came back to say "Sorry, I had to go sit down for a while"

This is a lovely, casual and quiet venue. Our Issue was that $23 price fixe was a LOT to pay for a basic Sunday buffet and salad bar. Coffee service was attentive, but this was WAY too much to pay for self-service.

Expected so much more from this experience. The food was just ok and our service was the worst of all the restaurants we visited while in Greenville. We had a 9pm reservation and the restaurant was not busy at that time for a Saturday night. We waited 11 minutes after we were seated to get drinks, were served our appetizers by a different person who did not say a word to us and walked off before we could ask for appetizer plates, had to flag down our waiter 10 minutes later to get the plates and our appetizers which were now cold, and I could go on and on. It just didn’t get better. Our glasses were almost empty. We did really enjoy the crab dip while waiting for plates for our flat bread which was also good. The meatloaf and pork and grits were just ok. We just didn’t leave thinking we would ever be back which is sad because this restaurant had been on our list for quite some time. Maybe just an off night.

Paul and the manager took great care of us. I cannot remember the manager's name-she is Blossom's sister. Meant to ask her name. They made us feel so welcome and treated us like family! That was a good thing!! Thank you for letting us sit in the atrium and visit and catch up with family!

We attended the Sunday Breakfast Buffet. Food was very good, service was very good. Omelets are ordered with a checklist of desired ingredients. Restaurant protocol is to order additional items from the grill, such as waffles, through the server. Other items are available, including desserts, are available from the buffet.

Server was not meeting our needs and seemed to have multiple other tables. Had to keep asking for water & coffee refills because she did not check periodically to see what we needed.
The gentleman hosting who checked on our experience was very prompt once we voiced that the eggs seemed off. He immediately spoke with the cook & had it switched out for a fresh pan of them.

Overall, my experience was great like always except for the things mentioned above!

Our meal at Roost was delicious - boneless pork chops with cranberry reduction, creamed sweet potatoes, and outstanding roasted Brussels sprouts. Service was outstanding. Since the Friday night concert was going on, we appreciated our table away from the patio.

My bill came to $28.09. I paid with a $100 bill. Change should have been $71.91. The waitress brought back my change and it was 3 $20’s and 2 $70.00. Either the waitress planned on a bigger tip than I was planning on giving or she couldn’t count. It’s hard to believe that she didn’t have a computer to tell her how much to give back. I was going to tip $10 on my $28.09 bill. But when she kept the change for herself I shortened my tip to $5. She still made over 20% but geez do some math or be honest.

I love that the Roost is close to the live band on Friday nights. I would love to have the music continue until closing even if it is a DJ. I love the outside seating and the location of the Roost. I love the hot wings, though last week they were as tasty as normal. The servers and staff are very helpful, friendly and efficient.

The service and food were fantastic. The fried green tomatoes, duck flatbread and filet were excellent choices. Our server Melanie was excellent at providing recommendations and giving follow up during our meal. She was very hospitable and made you feel welcome. Our first time dining at The Roost and we will definitely be back.

I hosted a Birthday Happy Hour Drop in for friends and then 8 of us stayed for dinner. Overall the food and drinks were very good. There were a few drinks swapped out and food sent back but the server and management team tried to make it right. My drinks and dinner were great. I had the BBQ chicken served with the best Brussel sprouts ever!

My boyfriend and I had been on the road for hours and just wanted a nice dinner and this place was perfect! We sat outside enjoying the running water from the fountain, had a great waitress, and the food was absolutely delicious. I would travel out of town any weekend just to come to this restaurant again!

Their online prices do not match what you are told when you get there. It’s $22 per person for brunch on Sundays and all they offer is a buffet. No other menus. The buffet isn’t anything great either - pretty standard. The only reason we didn’t leave when we realized it wasn’t $16 per person as advertised was because of the waffles and beverages included. Overall it was good, but pricey since half of us couldn’t eat $22 worth of brunch anyways. Update your online menu prices and options....

Overall food was good. Half of us did the buffet and half ordered off the menu. Out of the three of us that ordered off the menu, two were served raw eggs. We sent them back and 1 of 2 came back cooked. Medium eggs were served with running egg whites. Buffet was great and chicken benny was also great.

Was a good place to go with friends for a bite. We needed a quieter, easily accessible place to go to eat and visit after attending an event downtown Friday night. This fit the bill, but because of it being at the end of Downtown Alive, our servers were nice but very tired. Some items were unavailable and the bathrooms needed attention. Also, the restaurant used to validate parking, but they couldn’t ( or didn’t) that night. Parking alone added over $20 to our evening. Quite a bit, since most is $5 or less elsewhere
