Roots has a reputation for locally-sourced and prepared food. Atmosphere is fun and the service excellent. As far as our food, the cheese plate appetizer was our undisputed favorite. Our main courses, as vegetarians, were less flavorful. Their roasted and glazed carrots were simply divine but the tofu in both our sandwich and noodle dish were not flavored well and simply too thick. A little more thought in preparing the tofu would have made both of these dishes sing. I would recommend this restaurant but with a caution for vegetarians to choose carefully.
Real real good! Waited a while to go, but we will go back for sure
Wonderful restaurant! Fabulous salads and great sandwiches.
Second visit to Roots and really love it. Interesting menu with awesome chef and bartender to pull it off. Will definitely visit again when in rutland.
Delicious meal & wonderful Service!
We've been to Roots many times and always have a great meal! One of the best places in Rutland!
Roots has a new menu with some great items. Last night we tried the ravioli which had a great sauce. My wife had a burger. The blueberry pie was a little on the dry side. The staff - Mel, Rachel and Kerry are all so friendly - they have been there for years - which indicates to us a well managed restaurant.
We rate Roots as one of the top three restaurants in which we have fined.
I went with a friend for lunch. Hoping to see my son, Ross Lalancette, who turned out to have the flu and was not there. Rachel waited on us and she was wonderfully friendly, congenial, and smart. The food was wonderful although my friend was surprised that the bean dish had no beans in it. Maybe would have been nice to mention this beforehand or give the "special" a different name.
As always Roots doesn't disappoint and is now an institution in central Vermont. The people we met at the bar were as enjoyable as the food. And Rachel, Melissa, and Kerry took care of everyone like family. Thanks again.
Birthday dinner. Excellent food. Innovative dishes. Good value. Excellent service. I’d say probably best restaurant in Killington Mtn region.
I appreciated the variety of foods as some of us wanted meat and one is now eating vegetarian/vegan. There were several options for all of us. The restaurant was quiet although we arrived pretty early.
Very pleasant experience... Great food, service and atmosphere!
Neve been disappointed with this restaurant. The service is excellent and the food makes you cry it is so good.
Outstanding food and service. Tables too close to each other is only complaint.
We were here on a date. No waiting to be seated as we had reservations. Very pleasant, attentive server that made some nice suggestions. The food was delicious-nice presentation. Nicely decorated inside with pictures and bold colors on the wall. Reasonable prices for good quality food. We will be back!
