One of our favorite restaurants in this great City of excellent dining experiences. The food is always interesting and delicious; the wait staff is knowledgeable and just attentive enough to make the time enjoyable. The charcuterie board is always a treat filled with exceptional and unusual treats. Wonderfully consistent.

Place was empty on a Saturday night. That should have been a warning for us. Backless stools at the tables, freezing blowing air in dining room. They said they could not adjust temp. We decided to move to a table outside.
Drinks were good, wine very expensive for a small glass. Steak came out raw and fatty. They had excuses for that.
Duck bun was gross. Bread was stale.
Chick pea dish and grits and crawfish were good.
Waitress was chatty but strange.
Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Save your time and money. There are so many better choices.

I had high expectations from the reviews and I was left completely underwhelmed. I will not dine here again.

Stay away!!! We finally walked out. Poor service. Not friendly. Waited 40 minutes for a cheese platter which never came because the waitress forgot to write it down. when we spoke up we where treated rudely by the MANAGER. You can do far better. Worst experience we have ever had dinning in NOLA.

Root is one of my favorites in New Orleans. Chef Lopez has put together an outstanding menu and the cocktails are sublime. ❤️

Delightfully delicious, as always! First time at new location and not disappointed. Wonderful, warm staff...amazing charcuterie and cocktails...always worth the price, though more reasonably-priced wines by the glass would be appreciated.

I had a pleasant experience eating upstairs on the balcony. The waitress was very amicable and explained everything served to us. I wasn't too impressed with the food, but it wasn't bad.
