Roots Restaurant and Bar
Always a great experience with fantastic food. Beat in Portland.
It eat here often as the food is always wonderful. Very farm to table style.
It was our anniversary and we had a great experience out on their lovely patio.
The wait staff was attentive. Delectable dishes. Ordered a medium rib-eye that came out exactly as requested, medium as in it was perfectly rested, so that it remained juicy when cut. The spinach salad is very unique with the blackberries and pickled mustard seeds the dressing equally unique with a blackberry orange citronette. The mussels were fresh and tender, not chewy at all.
First time at Roots with friends. Great menu selection, service and food. Will definitely return.
Roots was unusually quiet for a Saturday evening. Normally I would expect the noise level to be moderate, and very much dependent on what the group at the neighboring tables are doing with their conversations.
The broccoli soup was superb and the entrees did not disappoint.
The food was lovely - flavorful and perfectly prepared.
Always great innovative dishes! We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed.
I've been here maybe 15-20 times and hosted a lot of big parties and events....and always had great to amazing food. This week was the first time I was truly disappointed. I had 2 work friends and 2/3 of them had mediocre food. The Risotto was so bland... only ate 3/4 bites and didn't take it home. A huge waste and quite pricey to throw out. Overall I'd go back but now it will be a long time and no more work events with private rooms for 20. Probably just a bad night or a bland dish but super disappointed especially hosting 2 new work folks.
Not fancy, although expensive. But the food is awesome! Good service too.
Absolutely the best meal we have had out in a long time - everything the chef prepared was stellar with an explosion of flavor. Definitely will return
Normally the food is very good at Roots. The special was a walnut pesto pasta. We all ordered it. It took a long time for our meals. We did not care for the flavor or combinations in the pasta dish. The salads were good but the pasta was not.
Showed up early, no problem. Ignored at first, then Andrew did a great job as a waiter. A bit expensive but good food. Not great, but good.
Another excellent meal, this time with a large group. That pastrami sandwich is a taste sensation!
Food and atmosphere is always enjoyable, celebrated a birthday and everyone had a great time.
Great meal(s) enjoyed by our party of 5. Salmon, pork and chicken dishes. All outstanding.
Fabulous food we are regulars I love the cocktails and the friendly staff and fish is always top notch
It’s a good place for a celebration or just a relaxing happy hour with good selection.
Prompt service, attentive server and delicious food.
Always a delicious meal and good service thank you
Service, food and atmosphere were fabulous! Can’t beat it in the East Vancouver/Camas area!
Took Mom here for Mother’s Day dinner. She loved it! We all did! Food was excellent. Very attractive restaurant. The only critique I could offer was that due to it being Mother’s Day, the place was very busy, which caused the noise level to go up and the service to slow down.
Yes I would recommend, however I was disappointed in the SERVICE this time. I have patronized Roots since the first day it opened (special invite to my then employer) whenever in area, and it has been a very good standby for celebrations with family. However this last time (Mother's Day Sunday 2019), the plates were brought out in this order: Husband and myself (pause aprox 2-3 minutes), mother-in law's husband (pause 5 minutes), Mother-in law! Any waiter worth his salt would have noted HER order (obviously eldest woman at table on Mother's Day) and made sure kitchen presented hers first if there had to be delays in bringing meals. We waited for her meal before we started eating so of course our meals got cold. The food itself was quite good, even if they did not plan enough for people ordering the German pancakes (MIL husband disappointed as is on no salt diet). I sincerely hope that they are not letting their standards slip, because when this occurs in a restaurant, people go elsewhere.
Excellent food and service. A little noise coming from a very young child.
The food here is always delicious. Always have a hard time deciding. The servers are friendly and attentive. Great place to dine!
They could use a little more staffing. Food was creative, using fresh ingredients.
We had dinner, and while it was excellent, The tab for our party of 4, with only one person having wine, and only 2 glasses, was $275. We had the steak, the short ribs and halibut. All very good, as were salads and desserts. We chose the bar area because it's a bit easier to hear on that side. Very pleasant space. Wait staff was friendly, but a bit too attentive, with constant interruptions, asking about refills if drinks we said we'd had enough of. I think I'll stick to lunch and happy hour, when I'm not purposely looking to splurge.
We had a lovely Easter dinner the risotto was out of this world with balsamic glaze and my kids loved all the desserts we ordered always a delicious meal
Good place with great service. Food is a little over priced for portion and quality but still a good place to visit. Will be back and do recommend.
had amazing salmon and polenta for lunch always my favorite go to place for a wonderful lunch
nice, upper class meal. is louder then I would like. steak was excellent. chicken stuffed needed more bacon and cheese
Wonderful birthday dinner. Greg our server pampered us just enough without bothering us too much. The food, ohmygawd, best rib eye steak I've had in a few decades. The duck liver pate, superb! Will definitely be back for the next special occasion.
I have already notified my facebook friends how much MaryRose and I enjoyed our 52nd Anniversary dinner at Root's. Our waitperson was Andy and he provided excellent service. Food was terrific and the Rack of Lamb was done to perfection. You can bet that we will be back in the future. Thanks again for making our 52nd good.
Please take steps to reduce the noise level. Very annoying.
Great service and feel. Food is excellent value top 10 steak for sure
Service was s little off this time.
The special- schnitzel- was a delightful cold weather dinner. Had the creme brulee for dessert and it was lovely.
Love the Happy Hour Menu. Dinner was wonderful. Service was great.
Second time coming here for Valentine's Day and well worth it. Asparagus appetizer was fantastic with polenta croutons. Wedge salad was tasty and plentiful and the scallop main course was cooked perfectly and complimented by garlic spinach and mashed potatoes. Highly recommend
