Menu is challenging with not sufficient variety. Ordered 4 small plates and none were especially good. Ambience is excellent but this is second time at the restaurant with the same experience.

Uproot never disappoints. Evolving menu, lively environment, consistent quality and well trained and attentive staff. The effort management puts into running this place well clearly shows.

Ordered about 12 different menu items. The food was good, but lacking in salt and acid across the board. Bao buns were the highlight. Shrimp tostones were very overcooked and dry. The service was very lacking. Entire staff are too young and inexperienced to be handling this menu and price point. Our main server was curt with us throughout the evening. One entree was behind the others, and when we asked if it was coming soon, he said, "Don't worry about it" and walked away.

Nice gem in a suburban strip mall...great ambiance. Uproot has a real city-vibe. We enjoyed the eclectic menu, particularly the small plates. After dinner we sat att he bar for an after dinner drink- good service here- but at our table it seemed a bit lacking. The manager came over before we ever saw a server to ask us if we wanted a drink. Our waiter seemed a bit scattered, and we had to ask more than once for our bill. Other than that, Uproot offers a unique and enjoyable dining experience...hoping the wait staff improves to make it an all around good experience!

I’ve been to Uproot several times and always enjoyed my experience. This time, however, the service was so slow that it put a big damper on the evening. It took almost 15 min for them to seat us and the guy just disappeared so no one really knew what was going on. It was just a little strange. But the food was delicious. The cauliflower bites were outrageous.

Apparently we had a waiter who was new to the restaurant . We ordered appetizers and asked they be brought before the meal. They came out with the meal so we didn’t accept them. The manager very kindly came to our table to apologize and didn’t charge us. They need to train their staff better. However, the food was very good. The burgers were delicious.

Food was relatively priced and ok. The service, however, was atrocious. I am STILL waiting for a refill on my beverage. The restaurant could not, at any point i was there, be considered busy, to explain the delay in service, or frankly, lack thereof.

We had a great dinner at Uproot. The burrata with broccoli and pepperoni was good, then we had tuna tartare which was delicious, fresh and flavorful. Also the skirt steak was great. Beautiful combination of flavors, colors and parfums.
For dessert we had the special doughnuts light, crispy and sweet at the right point

Server was extremely friendly. She modified some of the menu items for us. The food was excellent and customer service superb. My sister ordered a drink and the server warned her the drink was bitter and it was but when she ordered another drink they took the returned drink off the bill no questions asked. Which was nice considering the warning and not asking for it to be taken off. Prices were a little expensive. Cool bar area.

We went for dinner. The menu has just been revised, so we opted to make a meal out of appetizers/small plates. The Chicken Wings are fabulous! The Empanadas are delicious and the salsa served with them is mouth-watering. (I wanted more!) The Mushroom Toast was okay as was the eclectic Bao Bun. The Prosciutto and Basil Pizza was salty (but it is cheese and prosciutto). It was an early dinner and the restaurant was quiet, which was a treat. Service was excellent.

Up is a favorite of ours for just getting and enjoying a GREAT meal. We usually split two entries or combine two or three apps for diner. But our favorite is an Old Fashion at the bar with a large ice cube.... what a treat...!!

We dine at UpRoot often. This last time it took so long to get our dinners. We were a party of three and ordered bottled sparkling water and appetizers. That portion of our meal came out in a timely manner, but it took about 30 minutes for the dinners to come out. It was getting to the point that we were thinking about just getting the check and leaving. The manager did not seem to know about the hold up either. The waiter really did not keep us updated until we started to ask where our food was. Hoping next time we will have a better experience. The good news is that the food was very good!

Our waitress was very pleasant and is the reason I gave three instead of two stars for our latest visit.

They didn’t have one of the specials and were out of two of the menu entrees so I ordered “handheld” chicken sandwich-I was disappointed because chicken was very dry and bun near rock-hard. Fries were tasty though.

Well give it another try in the fall. Hope it was just a fluke.

What is not to like about a restaurant with friendly staff, good consistent and high quality food? When a restaurant jumps up first in line when thinking about where to go when going out to eat you know that means they deliver!!!! Always a great experience.

Used to have different upscale tacos on the menu that changed regularly. We were told they were removed to drive business to another restaurant by the same owner. Very disappointing.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner here. All of the dishes, we had the chorizo & plantains combination, corn creme brulee, the crab rangoon wontons, the Peking duck bao buns and a truffle & mushroom pizza. Each of which was delicious. Not that we really needed it but we finished it off with the donuts which definitely put us over the top.
I would recommend and we will be back

Such a gem in Warren - who knew? The food is terrific, service - excellent, noise level - what you expect for a weekend spot. The only reasons they did not receive 5 stars: wait staff dropped part of my dessert and they did not offer one of my favorite desserts that night (seasonal menu). Otherwise, perfect for special occasions.

I took my elderly Mom here while I was visiting her in Warren. We had an excellent meal and the staff and service was excellent. My mom had a roast chicken dish which was excellent and we also had some liver pate which was really good and not something you see in many restaurants.
