It was my wife’s birthday. We brought our 3 kids along. Great food but service was left us wanting a little more attention.

Didn’t know we’d have a guest who was a vegetarian... luckily Uproot had great choices.

What a great place! We went there for my wife's birthday and were not disappointed. Poala was a great server (ask for her), the drinks were awesome (my wife loved the Leechee Martini) and the food...my God...the food. We loved the halibut and the salmon. Also, pay the money and get their home made Irish Cream after dinner drink, you will not be disappointed. All in all great place and we will be back.

The restaurant was a lovely place to dine at! We've never never been there before, but I'm really glad that we chose to eat there. The atmosphere was lovely and so was the staff. (Major thanks to our waiter for being so helpful and answering our questions!) The food that we chose was amazing as well!

Fantastic atmosphere , excellent service , food is beautifully presented , unique, and delicious !
Love the eclectic design of the restaurant, the artistic vibe , the attention to every detail from the seating, lighting and wall art, to even the funky , gingham uniforms of the waiters and waitresses!
Luv that there is something for everyone, as I am a vegan and my family is not.I have found choices for myself( the delicious cauliflower ‘steak’ ), as well as my family have enjoyed their own dinners( the halibut and the hanger steak “cooked to perfection”).
Keep the great choices coming ,(especially for us ‘veggies’ who have a tough time finding something in most restaurants beyond a baked potato or pasta with bland marinara),truly a one-of-a-kind eating experience.
Thanks so much to the pleasant staff and host also for always assuring our dining experiences were memorable and enjoyable.

I liked that they could modify a few of their dishes for my husband and me who are plant based eaters. The guacamole was delicious albeit a bit salty. I wish a few of the appetizers like the white bean crostini were plant based. I will come back but I’d love to see more plant based items on your menu. Great drinks too. Overall, expensive

Attentive service from their young staff. Food was very good. We had a pizza, salmon tartare and a salad of Quinoa. Wine list is pretty limited but we found one we liked anyway.

Upscale and contemporary ambience with a relatively young crowd. The space is divided between an upscale bar with high tables and a quieter dinner space in the back.

My wife and I had a great Valentine's meal. The cassoulet we had as an appetizer was rich and warming. For our entrees we had the salmon and halibut off of the menu, and both were outstanding.

We are regulars at UpRoot. Their service, atmosphere and menu are sophisticated but not pretentious; updated but not trendy; and high quality but appropriately priced. Our favorites are the Brussels sprouts, poke bowl and of course...the cocktails.

We had a wonderful dinner here recently with another couple. Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in a strip mall fool you. This place is beautiful inside, with great atmosphere... it had a hip and trendy vibe to it. The food was amazing and service impeccable. We could not have asked for a friendlier waiter...he was extremely personable and attentive to our table the entire night. I started my evening with a winter sangria which was light, refreshing, and oh so delicious. Regarding the food, we started with 2 appetizers: the roasted Brussels sprouts and the crispy kabocha squash... both outstanding and I'd get them again. My entree was the shrimp fried rice which was fabulous. Everyone really liked their meals. For dessert, we tried their homemade doughnuts accompanied by salted caramel pot de creme for dunking -- OMG, amazing! You get 3 doughnuts, so there is plenty for sharing. Overall, a great place with great service and food. I would definitely return and therefore highly recommend it.

As always, one of me and my husbands favorite places to dine. Perfect date night spot. Delish apps, great drinks, service always top notch. We went for my husbands birthday and got an apple streusel special, IT WAS AMAZING! They also remembered from my reservation and added a candle for my husband. 5 stars. Thanks!!

This is my second time eating at UpRoot and with two visits under my belt, I’d say the food is consistently good. As a gluten allergy person, it was disconcerting to learn that the kitchen will use the gluten only fryer for everything if they get very busy. So celiacs beware, even with a menu where items are marked GF, sadly, they really don’t get it. I’m not sure there will be a third visit. I’m totally bummed!
