Roots Restaurant and Bar
Went there for Valentine's Day after hearing great things about it. Had great food, good drinks, and attentive servers. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice date night.
Very busy Valentines evening. They did a great job. Great food and wine snd service. Made it a special night.
Usually wouldn't review a restaurant on Valentines day but...
Service was understandably slow due to crowd but Andrew was spread thin but knowledgeable, polite and warm and he loves working at Roots.
Food was excellent, would recommend short ribs. Spinach salad was terrific.
Overall an excellent experience. Great WA wine list.
Roots continues to be our go to restaurant in East County. We have been fans of Brads concept and kitchen team since before moving from Beaverton in 2014. I must also say the wine list is one of the best in the Portland/SW Washington area. Very well chosen and a reasonable cookage fee.
We look forward to returning.
Very pleasant lunch. Will go again
Surprisingly good restaurant set among franchise-type establishments. Large menu. Very good dishes and service. (But leave the kids at home.)
We made reservations for a special Sunday evening meal with my son and his girlfriend. We started with a bacon and broccoli dip which is to die for. Then we had a magnificent appetizer course. My son had a leek and parsnip soup and my husband and I shared a wonderful beet salad with arugula, candied walnuts and goat cheese. The main courses were fabulous as well. Two of us had the fresh king salmon with creamy orzo and vegetables and my son had the mushroom risotto. We enjoyed Rombauer Zinfandel and the service was exquisite. The only downside is we did ‘t have room for dessert!
We enjoyed our Sunday dinner at Roots very much. Service was excellent and the kitchen very good as always. Our entrees of chicken breast and scallops were both very tasty and imaginative , as were both appetizers. If there is better than Roots in Vancouver we’ve yet to have the experience.
This was our first visit in awhile (thank you to our son again, very good (but a but heavy in both our opinions on the dressing). For entree, my wife had the Mushroom Risotto with Dungeness Crab added ... WONDERFUL. Lots perfectly cooked with a nice sear on on the outside & fork tinder. (Sadly), no room for dessert. Great meal with wonderful food & service.
We asked for a table rather than a booth and got just what we wanted. We love the menu selections, and the food was marvelous, as usual. Roots is the place I take my out of town guests...the best restaurant in Vancouver.
Roots, the restaurant, is a superb spot for an extraordinary culinary experience, right here in Vancouver's Eastside, WA. One can count on a menu that is tantalizing to the imagination, and stimulating to the salivary glands. The chefs working behind the scene, and visible to the diners, finish their creations with great skill. Their dishes are brought to the table piping hot. No time is wasted from kitchen to table.
Always a pleasure
Delicious food and drinks and outstanding service! Had a wonderful time catching up with my dear friend.
A well considered menu executed and served with expertise. Every item our party ordered was perfectly done and tasty. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant itself was cozy and enjoyably quiet such that conversations could be heard and enjoyed.
Great food and service.
I ordered the lamb for $48 and while it was very tender and flavorful, I felt the portion was a bit small for the price. It came with potato fingers, broccoli and zucchini and while it was filling, there was nothing left to take home. I recently had a meal at the ilani casino @ Michael Jordan's steakhouse and ordered a big steak. It was $99 , tender and huge! I was happy to take most of it home and make two more meals from it. Sure it was $50 more than the price of the meal at Roots, but I don't mind paying more to get a meal that is very memorable. All in all, I do like Roots and will revisit again.
Andrew was a great waiter, made good suggestions for wine, food and we will request his section in the future!
Met a friend for lunch crab cakes delicious and love toffee cake
Best food in Vancouver
Amazing food and service. Everything was absolutely fantastic. The food presentation was lovely. Cant wait to go back.
Birthday. Service to food was awesome.
Nice meal with good friends. Roots has a good menu and very good service.
Lovely meal, fabulous wine great service
Great service and excellent food.
We have been dining here for several years now and have never been disappointed. The food and service are outstanding. The menu always has a great variety of beef, chicken, pork and fish dishes. We find the atmosphere in the main dining area a bit noisy and cafeteria like, so we have our meals either in their intimate bar or on the patio.
Amazing food, service and vibe; we really enjoyed our experience
We love Roots! Hard to find better food in Vancouver.
Roots NEVER disappoints!
This was our 2nd visit to Roots. Food and service has been outstanding. Myself and daughter did not like the roasted broccoli that came with our halibut. It was too bland and charred. Seemed to be burnt. We will come back again when we want an excellent meal.
The server, Andrew, was very sweet and attentive. The food portions were good and my husband liked his risotto although my steak had more fat on it than I would have liked for the price. Everything tasted very good and we had a nice time.
Had a filet cooked to perfection, waiter was friendly & knowledgeable
We have been guests here often but felt the food did not have the overall quality. They were some wonderful dishes: tuna appetizer and chicken liver pate' and the peach cobbler. The chicken was wonderful but the Spanish rice and other sides were disappointing. The risotto was over powered by the added ingredients. We were so sad as we have always loved our meals at Roots.
Possibly our waiter stirred us wrong. I wanted the tuna appetizer for my main and would have ordered gazpacho and a salad with it. He said it would not be enough --- but it would have been perfect. We watched with others ordered and it seemed many didn't finish their meals. I hope it was just they were full.
We will give it another try.
Our waiter was very funny and there when ever we needed something. Very good service. I wish I remembered his name!!
Good lunch the salmon portion in salad small and little dressing on it but the pasta dish excellent
The fig appetizer was original and quite good. The flatbread one was tasty, but a little tough and messy because of the excess sauce. Entrees were excellent, cooked perfectly.
A very nice place to celebrate a special occasion. Excellent food. Beautiful beautiful presentation. Wonderful service.
Nice contemporary design, seasonal menu and creative Bar Drinks. Make this a nice place for a date.
Outstanding stop we make every year during the LPGA event in Portland!!
Engaging, attentive wait staff. Wonderful menu of very, very prepared and presented dishes. Every dish our party of four ordered were done as requested and were delicious.
