This restaurant is permanently closed. Rooted in the bistronomic revolution of French Cuisine, RBG, a non-pretentious New American eatery, pays homage to the simplicity of the modest bistro while infusing gastronomic techniques. We are surrounded by pure fresh, close to home ingredients that drive our creative menu. Our love for the art of cooking (and cocktails!) starts with the respect for the process, the ingredients, and the people.

We will heartily miss this spot. The food was amazing and creative. The drink were fantastic. Excellent dining for an anniversary, two years in a row. Beautiful menu.

We just enjoyed the weekly wine dinner menu every dish was off the chart! The shrimp ceviche was amazing served with a light citrus sauce and not sitting in to much liquid like most are served. The "chicken pot pie" was the winner though with crunchy flaky buttery bread and crispy chicken with all the fixings...Awesome! Finally for dessert chocolate on chocolate on! my favorite decadent dessert done right! We will be back next week for sure!

Excellent meal and service as always. We love the chef tasting menu because its always something new. We also suggest getting a chefs pairing because you get the best of the bar between cocktails, wine, and beer. Looking forward to joining Roots again soon. Great work guys always a pleasure dining with you!

We absolutely adore this neighborhood gen for some of the most well prepared creative foods and drink in all of Long Island. Outstanding preparation of locally sourced ingredients meant to delight your palate as well as make you question your own flavor preferences. Quaint atmosphere for bold flavorings and nuanced pairings. Just go!

Delicious and innovative. Every item we selected off the menu from the oysters to the lobster with celery mouse was fantastic! The presentation was beautiful and the staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. Definitely will go back soon.

Have been to roots a few times. This occasion, drinks, appetizers and dessert were fantastic, however the dinner was not the best I have had at this restaurant. Nice presentation but the sauce with the fish was a bit bland.

Made a last-minute reservation at 8:45 on the way there. Even though the kitchen was due to close at 9 PM, the staff was warm and welcoming and we never felt rushed. The food is Amazing! The cocktails are Amazing! They have an awesome wine and beer menu. This place is really quite wonderful.

Our waitress was lacking in personality so much so that the highlight of the service was the busboy who was very friendly. While the food was tasty the portions were ridiculously small! I don't mind paying top dollar for good food but I don't want to leave hungry! I will not be returning....

Mediocre food for top dollar. I have no problem paying almost $50/meal but I think the food should be worth at least that. $15 per glass of house wine. Manhattan prices

Overbooked for valentines an extra hour wait from the actual reservation. Many people left. Just a terrible experience altogether. Maybe try another day.

Advertised as gluten free, however none of the menu items on the Valentine's Day menu could be modified for food allergies. We were left with two items on the regular menu, one of which was sold out. On top of this, even after letting the hostess and the waitress know that we were gluten free, they tried serving us bread twice, and once said " I think it's gluten free" when it was not. We left and went else where for our meal. Would not recommend this restaurant as gluten free friendly as advertised.
