Outstanding service - knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff. Food perfectly prepared and presented with god portions. Wine selection good and not outrageously priced. Foraged mushroom ragout with roasted root vegetables was outstanding and salmon was done to perfection. Dessert appropriately rich for Valentine’s!
Nothing n Vancouver exceeds Roots and easily amongst the top five in the area.

Had Valentine's dinner w/my husband at Roots. We were seated in a side room which we'd never seen. It was MUCH quieter there which was helpful as my spouse has some hearing challenges. We each ordered the soup du jour which was tasty but a little on the salty side. I had grilled sea scallops with other sides as I'm on a gluten free meal plan right now. Husband had roasted chicken; grilled to perfection and WAY too much food for one meal. Wish I'd had MORE than 5 scallops - they were yummy but definitely would have loved more.
He opted for their lemony cheesecake which was super light. I had their flourless chocolate cake which was more like a candy bar & didn't match my expectations. Will likely forgo the extra calories / cost in the future. Meals here are on the pricier side but the quality is excellent.

This is a drive for us and it has been a year since we have been here. The first time was excellent. The second time was excellent!

Roots is our go-to location for work dinners and small events. We went for Sunday Brunch with some friends from out-of-town, and it was fantastic. Service and food were phenomenal, the fork and knife biscuit and brioche french toast were really terrific. We will continue to go to Roots for business dinners, and have now added to our Sunday brunch places. Thanks for a great experience and good food.

Went for brunch and the meal was yummy. We asked for some slight off the menu shifts and they happily accommodated. A terrific place!!

Our filet mignon and rack of lamb were superb. The veggie accompaniment was also excellent! The spinach salad was amazing. Our servers were excellent—didn’t hover but were there when we needed them.

We tried three cocktails from the bar menu—good but not excellent. The creme brûlée was average.

We will be returning soon, very soon—the food is too good not to.

My meal was served 10 minutes later than my guests. Worse food I have ever experienced there. Crowded in too many tables in the banquet room. I was squished between table and wall. I was embarrassed I took my guests here for Thanksgiving.

Enjoyed a unique avocado & crab 'salad' that was so delicately seasoned, my tongue couldn't stop smiling. I wish there had been a few more 'greens' to go with it but the overall dish was stunning to look at and delicious to eat. The quiet in the restaurant during lunch was much appreciated too. It's usually a bit too noisy for me at dinner.
