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.

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.

Fantastic experience ate outside on the balcony. Waitress was very helpful and explained each item on the menu. Was an outstanding tasty tapas/appetizer feel. Each with great unique flavors. Yum

The food was good, but the service was very odd. We enjoyed our time, but will not be returning. Sometimes I just want to eat my food without being best friends with the waitress.

What a great place. Presentation was fantastic and not just for show. Food was delicious. You have to get the charcuterie and cheese. They make their own meats. It's crazy good! I usually skip the reviews but this place blew me away. This is how you have a fun night and eat at the same time.

Uncomfortable seating. Wine was very overpriced. Food was pretty good. Awkward service from odd waitress who went on and on describing the food.

My girlfriend and I went to Root the night before my birthday to celebrate and eat a fancy meal out of town. Brittany was a very helpful and personable server. She explained every dish in great detail. I loved the experience of getting a drink and a charcuterie plate to start and just continuing to order small plates until we're full. We probably took 15 minutes to establish a plan for what order we would get everything. I LAUGHED at how good the Leonard Cohen was. The Sundae was divine too. Thanks for helping me ring in the new year and my 25 birthday. Cheers!
