                        Roost was great. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Our server, Devin, was fantastic, so friendly and nice. Ambiance is good - nice, new place thoughtfully designed. Feels neighborhood-y in the best possible way.

                        Great waitress - seasoned, friendly and fast! Helpful with gluten options. Lamb was overdone but everything else, including drinks and cocktails, were spot on.

                        I rarely leave reviews, but I feel like I need to here. I made a reservation at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm reservation (figured they would have planned who would be serving us by then). When we got there, we were seated right away - it wasn’t incredibly busy. We sat for 15 minutes before a waitress even acknowledged us. I actually had to go up to the hostess stand to ask if someone was going to be over. Meanwhile, 1 waitress and 1 hostess passed our table several time to bud another table. The food was fantastic. It took a long time before we were offered another drink. The food was very good, however. The drinks were subpar. Overall, super disappointed. Kind of a bummer because I was hoping for a nice dinner experience for a Saturday evening.

                        Very good food and proportions were just right. The hot pretzels and mustard were a perfect appetizer. Wait staff very friendly and food was served quickly. Wine selection is limited but all are very good choices. I would encourage Roost to add another vegetarian/vegan option to the menu. Overall a great place for dinner.

                        My wife daughter and I were 1st timers. Very pleased with all. Saw the sign from the road a while back then when we were looking for a place to eat I brought up your website which is also good. Liked the menu and looks of the place so we went. We sat just outside the bar in the dining room so the noise level was nice and quiet and relaxing. Thank you all. We’ll be back.

                        Our meals were pretty good- but the app was quite slow to arrive. Unfortunately our waitress never once checked back on us and I kept having to find her or someone to please bring us more water (salty meals!) I ordered a glass of wine that never came- she mentioned it as she finally came over on her own- (once) and I was eating my last bite of my dinner. Ugh. We really want to love Roost- but if we go out- I just want it to be easy- not frustrating and I hate being thirsty. We were frustrated and are pretty low maintenance. We probably won't go back.

                        I had been to Roost only 2/3 times before the COVID craziness and was happy to learn they were still open for business. Had lunch with a friend and dinner with family and everyone agreed it was excellent. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was great. Check it out the next time you're in Dover or looking for some place new to dine.

                        Clean and comfortable atmosphere. Service is a bit slow, but everyplace is right now, understandable. Food is consistently very good, prices good as well. Good beer, alcohol and wine options if you're into that.

                        We have been to Roost half a dozen times and generally had a very good experience (normally would rate 4 or 5 stars), but last night was quite disappointing. The service was abysmal. We’ll go back in hope that it will be better.

                        Our server definitely made our entire evening! It was my grandmothers birthday so we enjoyed a very early dinner at Roost because of the menu selection. It was our second time there and our server made our experience 50 times more enjoyable. He was a younger gentleman with dark hair and braces. He was our server and bartender and he was amazing! He was so sweet and memorized our orders and gave us suggestions. He was AMAZING! Will be coming back for sure.

                        We dined there on Valentine's Day.We had a reservation and got seated right away.Hostess and waitress friendly and helpful.We ordered an appetizer.Had two drinks each and entrees.The food was delicious,but we were both disappointed because the food was not hot.It was luke warm at best,We did not complain.Maybe if we didn't order the main meal at same time we ordered the appetizer,the food would have been hotter.We will eventually try again.Thank you.

                        We went on Valentines Day for the first time. Nice menu, friendly staff and food was prepared well. Little bit of everything. I do wish the dessert menu was attached to the menu or on the table.

                        Food and drinks were delicious, our waitress was very polite and food came out hot and prompt. We did have a loud table behind us and I wish they had some more cocktails listed but everything we ordered was amazing.

                        Nice, bright dining area around the bar featuring light wood (birch or maple), lots of windows and lively conversations. The waitress was fun, efficient and attentive. We all enjoyed our dinner selections and cocktails.

                        We requested a seat for four and a high chair for my toddler. The staff was super accommodating to our requests, and very willing to help us select a meal for my 18 month old. The food was really delicious - steak tacos, caprese panini and two appetizers. The restaurant is spacious, but warm and inviting. We love coming here.

                        The chicken, bacon & cheddar arancini was an excellent appetizer. The scallops were also excellent. We were disappointed with the carrot cake. It seemed as if it was stale. In spite of that, we will definitely return!
