    The steak frites were not very flavorful (a little burnt and bland). I mostly paid for fries with that meal. The salad was amazing though and the dessert was so delicious! Great drink options as well!

    We celebrated our son's college graduation with another fantastic dinner at Roots. My in-laws, who are a bit hard of hearing, loved the quiet, garden-like outside seating. Our son and his girlfriend loved the beer menu. Everyone loved the apps and their dinners. It was a great success!

    Wife and I arrived and taken straight to reserved table. Great service, GREAT FOOD, dessert (blondie brownie w/ ice cream) and meal was very reasonably priced. Definitely will go again, and if you are in the Rutland area, make sure you stop in to try the menu.

    Our server, Trey, was excellent. He has been my server before and he is always top notch. I love the food and the atmosphere at Roots. It is my number one choice in Rutland. Keep up the great work. Kudos to Trey.
