Amazing as always. Thanks again for a memorable meal.
Our first time there and will be back. Our server was outstanding and made great recommendations!
We had been to The Root a few times for dinner and lunch. This time we went for the Brunch and it was great! The service this day was better than we have had in the past and the food for Brunch was interesting and delicious! It takes us a good 45 minutes to get to The Root from our home, for Brunch, it's worth the drive. We will definitely visit again for Brunch.
Great food, great service. Amazing interesting drinks, menu very interesting and uses local farms.
My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Root immensely.
Service, food, and drinks were fantastic—as always!
Great service and wonderful food
My husband and I had been to The Root Restaurant before and loved it. We wanted our adult children to experience the food and atmosphere there too. We went for our daughter's 25th birthday. She is gluten free and happily, had options to choose from .
Our server was wonderful, attentive and professional.
Can't wait to take my other family members there too!
Always love this place, but we always go when it's cold. My only complaint with this trip was we were right by the somewhat drafty window. Can't wait til it's warm, I think they have a patio too!
Great evening!! Food was wonderful and service outstanding!!
My friends and I enjoyed our lunch. Chris, our waiter, was friendly and knowledgeable. The menu was varied. U recommend this restaurant.
I was skeptical when I heard James Rigato left the restaurant quite some time ago. However, this was a lovely experience all around. My siblings and I had our monthly get together here and had zero complaints. The tasting menu was lovely. Well done.
Food was good, but our group preferred a wider variance of menu choices.
The Onion soup was excellent, and the waiter was on the ball. We all enjoyed lunch. I will be back!
Had a great lunch at Root yesterday. Ryan did a great job serving and the kitchen was great as usual.
The tables for 2 a little too close ! The food delicious. We were given a little bit of champagne to celebrate our anniversary and that was a great gesture. Thank you !
I have eaten at The Root many times since it opened and always had a good meal, great service and good value, butI will not eat at The Root again anytime soon. When we first walked in, the hostess wanted to seat us immediately, even though we were early and the rest of our party hadn't arrived yet; She was annoyed when we wanted to have a drink and wait for them. Our server was pleasant, but did not appear that knowledgable on the dishes. In the past, I have always been impressed with the staff's knowledge and ability to accommodate special requests. We ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer, without bleu cheese, since 3 out of four have a dairy allergy; it came with bleu cheese on it, so we sent it back, My husband ordered the fish special, which was ahi tuna on soba noodles. He requested to substitute the noodles for rice, and was told not they couldn't do that and the server didn't offer any other option. He requested to speak with the manager, who came over and advised the same without offering any other option, other than to say that they only had a certain portion of rice and couldn't substitute. I can understand the portioning issue, but come on, it was white rice!!! My husband then asked for a vegetable and she said no, same thing on the portion side, so he finally said how about a salad? The manager agreed, and brought out a dish of plain arugula with about 2 radishes on it, which was pretty pathetic. All the main dishes then came out, and I have to say that compared to meals we have had there in the past, the portion sizes were tiny. I would call them appetizer size, not main entree size, especially for the prices they were charging.
All in all, we were very disappointed in the whole dining experience; I had heard that the original chef/owner was no longer involved in the restaurant and there was a new chef. I always considered The Root a higher end restaurant but they'll have to improve their service and selections if they want my business anymore!
We were there for a birthday, which came with a complimentary dessert for the birthday person. Service was great, as usual, including accommodation of my multitude of food allergies. Some new things on the menu (cocktails and food) along with the different daily specials. One of the more interesting cocktails was a hickory-smoke/maple/bourbon/cherry John Collins. Great wine by the glass selection at reasonable prices and variety.
Food was very good, and the service was excellent. We always enjoy eating at The Root.
Our usuals for brunch didn't disappoint. The Chicken and Waffles are to die for. Chicken is tender an juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside! The bacon is the best I've had but you have to like salty. Happy Customers!
Sunday brunch is outstanding!
The Root is always amazing! I wish that they were open for breakfast/brunch all week long!
Wow! This restaurant has it all! We loved the decor, the menu selection, friendly wait staff, and especially the food! Everything we ordered was nothing short of amazing and we were impressed by the creative presentation. Equally impressive are the reasonable prices. For a unique, fun, and welcoming dining experience, visit The Root. We will certainly be back! We only wish that the restaurant was located closer to home; however, it was well worth the drive.
This is our favorite spot for wonderfully prepared, fresh food!
This restaurant is one of our favorite ‘special occasions’ locations. We especially enjoy sitting at the Chefs Table and try to book it when we can. Excellent food that features Michigan grown/raised products.
It was an okay restaurant food was good but not great but still good. Beautiful place to dine but prices are pretty high for what you get. Not vegan friendly. I would suggest more menu options in general. I would go back though if it were special occassion and I'm willing to spend 30 or more bucks on things I actually want.
It was our first visit to The Root and everyone that attended was disappointed. It started out with the waiter spilling a glass of water on the table. We know that accidents happen but when the water went into our appetizer and we were not offered a replacement - that was our first disappointment. Our waiter seemed to disappear quite often - we had to wait 15 minutes for our drinks and then while having dessert we had to wait about another 15 minutes before we flagged down another waitperson to assist in bringing us our beverage. The food was only average but had the service been better, we may have enjoyed the evening and food more.
We've been wanting to go here for some time now and glad we finally made it. Overall, I'd recommend this place to all my foodie friends! The only disappointment was the lack of Pasta Bolognaise served to my wife. She doesn't eat a lot so it wasn't much of an issue. However, if I had ordered this for myself, I would have been real bummed!
We are looking forward to going back and will try the bar next time.
Wonderful girls night to celebrate a birthday. Our waiter, Chris , was knowledgeable and patient.
I had made a reservation, even though it was pretty empty on Sunday at 7:00 pm. Nice table. We ordered the Thai Tacos, yummy, but needed something a little creamy on it. Next, soup. My husband order the daily soup, Thai based -good. I had the onion which has a very strange flavor. Loved the cheese and crouton. Nothing compared to Peabody's onion soup! Next, the burger. I think I only like them on a brioche bun. To much bread for the small size burger. No paprika on the fries, it taste like nothing but powder on them...I was so disappointed. Service was great! Loved the music. Simplicity with the food would have been better...
Overall Great experience. We arrived a little early prior to our reservation and while waiting had a drink at the bar. The bartender made good drinks, but she seemed a little short with us when the bar was mostly empty, which I didn't understand. Our server once seated was great, so overall a good experience.
The food and service were great!
The atmosphere at The Root is great, especially given that it resides in a strip mall. The service was top notch and the food was very good. However, $25 for fried chicken seems to be a bit pricey as was the paparadelle with bolognese. I had the pork belly which was wonderful with the homemade kimchi and creamed corn. It was an appetizer and $14, but really was the best value as it was as large as the 2 entrees my son and wife ordered.
Excellent as usual, except for the bread and rolls which did not seem fresh!
As always, The Root never fails to offer creative meals, local options, and a very knowledgeable waitstaff!
Great, as always.
The Root always has a great menu selection of seasonal flavors and a welcoming knowledgeable staff.
Absolutely love this place for lunch, dinner, or brunch. They have a great selection of soups, salads, appetizers, main dishes and vegan options. They have excellent service.
Several of us had the best brussle sprouts salad and agreed it was fantastic. We'd go back just for that salad!
Great Place In Every Way But Would Like To See An Even Larger Wine Selection.
