Our waiter was awful. Didn’t come back to the table the whole time until we asked another server to get our waiter. Didn’t check that our food came out okay and the manager came over to ask if we needed anything and came back with the check.

This is the second time I’ve had this waiter and he did it the last time also. Very disappointed.

With limited capacity during COVID, UpRoot was a little more quiet than it used to be but great for dinner conversation. Food was delicious. Service was attentive and not rushed.

Went out to dinner with my boyfriend for the first time in what seems like forever, and this was everything we were hoping for. The food (and drinks) were delicious, the ambiance was just right and the service was fantastic. Definitely going to include Uproot in our regular rotation!

We hadn’t been in 4 years or so and decided to return. Food and ambiance were good just like we remembered. I recommend the coffee rubbed chicken wings and Korean pork chop. Skip the pork belly appetizer. It was an extremely small portion not shareable. Overall nice night out!

Had to rate the food with only 3 stars but my order (grilled shrimp with avocado and mango was 5*+++); unfortunately my husband's order of eggplant parmigiana was AWFUL.
SO if you go just order accordingly and you will be very happy.

My wife and I stopped in for a couple of drinks and some shareable small plates for a lighter dinner. The bartender was a great conversationalist, and his food recommendations didn't disappoint. We did the Chicken Pot Pie Empanadas, and the Meatballs... both fantastic. My wife drink and Old Fashioned - decent, but not legendary, and at $12, we wished for a slightly more elevated version. Sadly, they only featured 2 beers on tap, Stella and a NJ IPA, Kane Brewing... the Kane is delicious, but more options would definitely be welcomed. (I'm guessing the reduced taps were COVID related)

Overall, this evening was a little on the pricier side - still a good choice, and I would definitely recommend Uproots to friends.

Our server was so kind, didn’t rush us and let us take our time talking while figuring out what we wanted. My friend and I really enjoyed the pizza! I had the goat cheese & bacon...she had the butternut squash. Both were amazing!! And the Razzmo is a great cocktail

My friend and I specifically chose Uproot for their happy hour menu and deal. However, even though it was 4:30 and nobody else was there, they would not honor the happy hour special because we were seated outside and not at their indoor bar. My friend has health issues and did not feel comfortable eating indoors. I don't think it's right that we were penalized for this covid situation. Just like everything else right now, this made no sense. We have been trying to support as many restaurants as possible. Uproot is no longer one of them.

We left with a bad taste as the manager the wait staff to add a 20% gratuity onto our bill after the waiter gave us the bill. The waiter took the bill back and added the gratuity. The manager was arrogant, and when confronted was willing to take the tip off the bill. This was not fair to the servers who did a great job. Just because the manager was a jerk the servers should not suffer. We did pay the gratuity, but ripped into the manger for his unprofessional behavior, in fact he was taking about this to his host when we were leaving and became quiet when we approached. Also, the added gratuity policy was no where to be found on the menu.

to be successful this establishment needs outdoor heaters. The service was spotty but only because the waiter was serving too many tables. Never asked about a second drink and the food gets cold due to the very poor ambiance offered outside. Really could be a hit if they invested in the outdoor experience. I would not recommend this eatery to anyone who wants to be outside.

Ate outside in area in front of the restaurant (and the parking lot). The food was excellent: fried Brussels sprouts, chicken tiki Masala, latke with smoked salmon and short rib panini. All were delicious. Great vegetarian options. Oh, did I forget the cookie dough skillet dessert with ice cream. Perfect ending to a great meal. Obviously hope to return indoors when covid restrictions are loosened.

Disappointed with the food. We have dined here many times over the years and the last couple times recently we were not as happy. The guacamole and chips are always fabulous but the guacamole this time was not as tasty and way too chunky. The avocados were clearly not ripe enough to make a good guacamole dip and someone forgot the seasoning. The salmon was OK my husband and I shared it it was not that tasty and the portion size was Uber small! The short rib Panini was just OK we shared that as well. There was a lot of bread and not so much filling. We decided to skip dessert since dinner was kind of a flop. I think it will be a while until we go back here.

It’s not fair to judge noise or ambiance, because we were eating outdoors. We are longtime patrons and have noticed a decline in the food. The couple we were with felt the same. We’ll give it another chance when things go back to normal and people can eat inside.
