The Root Restaurant & Bar
Ran out of Chicken that someone in party wished to eat. Offered nothing in consolation given limited menu. Forgot a cappuccino. Was disappointing experience! Will not return.
Great food ( as always ) for Father’s Day brunch - however, it took nearly an hour to get our food after waitress took our order.
We ended up getting outdoor seating which was lovely. We ended up choosing the tasting menu which gives you 5 courses . The first course one of us chose the Sea Scallops and I chose the Brie encroute which came with an arugula salad and thinly sliced apples. Very well done...extremely delicious - almost licked the plates. The next course we chose the salad and the curried Brussel sprouts. Both were very good. Then came the intermezzo (lemon chartreuse sorbet to cleanse the palet) Then onto the entrees The fish of the evening was cooked to perfection and the fingerling potatoes were spot on. I chose the curried chick peas and cauliflower with jasmine rice. The flavor profile was delicious yet the rice was undercook and a little crunchy for my taste. The dessert was a banana cream pie w/roasted marshmallow and I had the blueberry rhubarb lavender pie. Both were great. As for drinks - the wine list is nice and chose one to suit the meal. There was a bourbon drink (forget what its' called, yet it's smoked) Overall a very lovely evening outside and the meal was fantastic.
Great food. Great service. One of my favorite pksces
Chris is an outstanding server! Excellent balance in terms of conversation and business related to the dining experience.
We sat outside and was wonderful. We ate appetizers, dinner, desert and had beer and cocktails everything was great.
Tasting menu was a great sxperience
always good. you can count on a nice meal and great service
A group of car friends get together each Wednesday and go to a different restaurant for lunch and have burgers.
This week was our 300th! To celebrate we picked an extra nice place to go and we were not disappointed!
Very best service and food! Recommend it highly!
Btittney was faboulus person. She shared the recipe for your new Sangria. She updated us on Matt's condition.
I was disappointed that when I returned my steak that was rare when I ordered medium, It was forgotten and then overcooked! Meanwhile I hungrily watched my dining guests finish their meals. Finally my steak was returned cooked properly and they comped my meal.
Great waiter. Food was delicious. I had the gnocchis and shrimp, so good.
Wait staff was very accommodating and attentive. Food was delicious!
Second time here and again all 4 of us had delicious fresh food and great service.
This has been my favorite restaurant for years. Our visit in May, 2019 was very disappointing. There were not very many people there but our service was extremely slow. Worst I've ever had. Tried the prime rib and was very disappointed. Wasn't cooked as requested and sauce was cold with a film over the top. Based on this experience, I may not return and will pause before recommending.
Uninspired food, ok service. We wanted casual- burger and a sloppy joe which both were so lacking in flare or distinction it could have been a Kirby’s. No flare, no imagination. The beet salad was very good but stingy on the beets and apples
The food was delicious! I docked a star for service because our server was a little scattered. We did come in on Mother’s Day and I could tell the server had a big section which I was understanding of. But, along with that we were charged $8 for my sons mac n cheese when his kids meal should have been free (kids eat free Sundays 4-9pm). I would’ve rather shared my meal with him than pay $8 for his own. Unfortunately, my husband paid without checking the bill first. Overall the restaurant was amazing and we’ll definitely go back!
We often choose this restaurant for after hours dining or dessert...always friendly, food is always good, atmosphere is wonderful.
Service was below standard. Drinks not refilled, we were basically forgotten about. While it was Mother's Day, the restaurant was not full and didn't seem busier than usual. The already limited menu had several items 86'ed. Waited 20 minutes for a table, even with a reservation. We have tried The Root for brunch on two occasions but we won't again. Not up to par with other upscale brunches in the area (Milford, Clarkston.)
I normally have wonderful things to say about the root however we specifically went here to celebrate Mothers Day and were very disappointed. It took over an hour for our food to arrive with no update from our server how much longer it would be. In fact he avoided our table. After the food arrived there was no apology for the delay. He did not come back to check and see how the food was despite my numerous attempts to wave him down. In addition there was no “happy Mother’s day” comment from him. Again, we would normally rave about them but we were quite disappointed in service and food quality on such a special day.
I took my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day. We enjoyed a wonderful brunch of Lavender honey pancakes and a side of bacon. Both were very good. Our only regret, that we didn't order different meals so we could try the eggs benedict! The mimosas were also very good as I opted to try the grapefruit instead of the traditional orange and loved it!
We had the most delicious meal and our service was equally as excellent.
The food and service were both amazing. We had a great meal for under 100 bucks and will definitely be back.
Expensive for the portion size of entree most fine dining restaurant offer a salad and bread.. not here.
It's noisy and slow service..
Water glasses are kept full and tables cleared quickly.
Food was amazing. It would be nice if there were a few more options. The menu was very limited in selection.
Was seated promptly. The scallops were a fabulous appetizer. Sweet potato bisque was excellent as well. I wanted to try something different and had the chickpea and cauliflower curry. It was solid but could have used some more pizzazz. Adelsheim Pinot was excellent.
Katie, our server, was very attentive and delightful. Overall, a wonderful dining experience. Becoming one of my favorites.
Good food , good atmosphere. Limited selections and a bit expensive.
Once again The Root provided exceptional food, service, and drink.
First time visit for our friends who were delighted with their food selections. Good service and our table was ready when we arrived!
We love the root and they are excellent with food allergies.
We had an excellent dinner at the Root on Saturday. We made our own tasting menu, and our server (Karen?) did a great job bringing the courses on time and in sequence. She even brought us an intermezzo!. The brussell sprouts are outstanding! And so is the shrimp and pasta. Thank you.
Overall great experience! I would go there again for sure!
The brunch at the Root is fantastic. I think I have been 5 or 6 times. The biscuits and gravy are the best I've ever had.
Love the food, the interior and the service is first class... but the music is WAY too loud and you get the feeling they are doing it on purpose. We went at 2pm and I'd say at that time of day loud 80s music isn't called for. It sorta ruined the experience.
Wonderful experience, I always enjoy my time at the Root!
Once again a great experience. Both my kids, 10 & 12, loved the brunch. Excellent service with awesome food. Can't recommend The Root enough.
Our first ever visit was for Easter brunch. Creative menu with plenty of appealing options. Great cocktail menu. All of the specials sounded amazing so we ordered the special cocktails (strawberry bellini) and breakfast (prime rib benedict). They were out of this world. All of the food came out really quickly and was exceptional. Attentive server answered questions with confidence. We will definitely be back. Can't believe it took us so long to try The Root!
Always a great choice for a night out. Great food and fantastic drinks. Just an excellent restaurant.
Amazing dining at the Root!
The gnocchi was the best I have ever had, the rest of our meals was just ok.
I love onion soup and had high hopes for the soup here, based on reputation. Unfortunately, it was only lukewarm with a unique flavor that I did not find particularly satisfying.
I would go there again, but would not go out of my way to do so.
