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!
great little spot for dining. customer service was great. food was delicious with great presentation. unique menu items that are fun & tasty.
we ordered the fried calamari, new england cheese board, squash & maple soup, house made beet pasta raviolis, vermont burgers with fries, and salmon sandwich with quinoa salad.
highly recommend this restaurant next time your in the area.
I've always liked Roots. The people are great there too.
First time visit. The food here was fantastic. An hour's drive away for us, but will definitely visit again soon, so that we can sample other dishes!
A creative menu, wonderful ambiance, great service. We had dinner before the theatre and the hardest part was deciding among such delectable sounding range of choices. The blacked carrot salad was a big surprise with about 4 whole carrots sliced the long way and blackened. I think they would have been better warm, and I could have done with one 2, but the tastes were balanced and delicious. My husband's cod was cooked perfectly and really fabulous taste combinations. My pork chop was cooked to toughness despite my having asked for medium rare. Otherwise, the presentation was lovely and all the accompaniments were perfectly balanced with the protein. I can't give 5 stars for the food because of the leather pork chop. Great resto. We'll be back.
The chef offers a very creative menu cooked with local products. Roots is a great place to go if you're looking for something different. The food was great and the service was very good and attentive as well. I'd recommend the poached lobster appetizer for something different presented in an artistic way. It was excellent. It's a small place. It's best to make a reservation.
An interesting restaurant with an upmarket feel. The food was good and local produce was high on the agenda. Service was a little slow and the selection of beers limited. They appear to take a lot of care.
I've enjoyed every meal at Roots. The food is excellent, and we enjoy the quiet atmosphere.
Great food! Worth the price. Nice visual ambiance. Place is a bit noisy, but in a way that prevented hearing conversations at neighboring tables. The place is small, so reservations are recommended. On a Tuesday night there were several more tables available.
The food and service were excellent! The bar area is too small and they make you wait in a small, cold lobby for your table. My only complaint.
Always friendly and inviting - food never disappoints ( best salmon in the city ) and service is excellent. Our favorite bartender must have been off this night ( she is forgiven ) but we did miss her. Hurry back Mrs. Tomasi :)
We were on vacation in Vermont and the B & B recommended "Roots" in Rutland. They were able to seat us early and the staff was very friendly and gave good service. Lots of choice on the menu with several vegetarian options. We shared a cheeseboard and had homemade pasta. Dessert was a tasty sorbet trio. We both had a drink and the bill was less than $100. It is a small place so recommend reservations as we were there on a Wednesday and all tables and seats at the small bar were full.
We are from San Diego and are traveling through Vermont. We love to eat at restaurants that serve healthy options. We absolutely loved the Greek Kale Salad. The salmon entree and the cod entree were moist and incredible!! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Roots was bustling prior to the Graham Nash concert next door, but the service was impeccably delivered. I didn't drink but my son who loves to had 3 drinks and the Jamison was definitely a heavy pour. The meals were beautifulyl assembled, and my only complaint, the polenta and the pork belly were somewhat over sauced and detracted from their crispiness, but that's just personal preference . I however ate every single bit. The steak with blue cheese my son had with caramelized carrots and a very well crisped baked potato was excellent. I loved the ambiance and had we not had reservations for the concert and if I was not the designated driver would have definitely spent another 1/2 hour.
Surprising find in Rutland. Clean. Fun cocktails and wine. Great food!
Absolutely superb cuisine and sublime cocktails. IMO the best restaurant and Rutland area and among the too 3 in Central and Southern VT.
I would definitely be there again. I was on my second date with a lady and she liked it, too.
