Love the specialty drinks. The food is always delicious and beautifully prepared Service is knowledgeable and attentive
Friendly, fun staff, excellent food, great atmosphere
Everything was impressive from the moment we walked in. The atmosphere outside was great with the live music, maybe a little loud for our taste, but lovely choice of music in a wonderful setting. When I made the reservations outside wasn't an option, but I wasn't disappointed for long, because the inside feel was really groovy too! The food was amazing...the tomato bisque is something i have still been dreaming about! We had the cheese fondue and they blended the cheeses just right. We are from CT and come up for a weekend trip and this was definitely the best place we ate! We will be back!
The food was amazing, and I loved the live music.
Should increase the draft list. Lots of Vermont beer is out there.
we had a most enjoyable evening. Very good service and food. the music was an added bonus. the only thing that could have made it better is if the kitchen could split an entry in the kitchen, charge as necessary for that service.
First time dining Inside a restaurant since the pandemic began over a year ago. Same experience at Roots as when we dined there over a year ago. Very good food, excellent bartender, pleasant ambiance. As we often do, ate at the bar. Though both of us fully vaccinated, very pleased Roots maintains face mask requirement other than when eating or drinking, with all staff wearing masks.
Special occasion was celebrating again dining in a restaurant.
Food, environment, staff are all awesome at Roots!
We were served very quickly. The cocktails are awesome. Food is always predicable and superior to any try Ins else in the area!
A wonderful evening with live entertainment, lawn seating under a large tent, excellent cocktails, apps and entrees. We couldn't have asked for more!
Food was excellent. Great attention to detail. Lovely staff.
No-one would have expected to find a gem of this quality in a non major metropolis setting like Rutland. The food was superb, well presented and of high quality. It is clear the chef has been well trained. The service was excellent. Overall, this wad an unexpected five star performance.
The food was excellent. Our server was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend eating here. There was something on the menu for any diet. We ate inside but there was seating outside as well. We had the burgers and they were delicious. We will definitely be eating here again.
The salmon is always wonderful, as is the slow roasted pork. The pork belly app was fabulous
The atmosphere was nice. We enjoyed the musician! Service was slow to start, and then it was fine. The scallop dish was very good, but we each only got 4 small scallops and a lot of spinach.
Awesome experience as always. Outdoor dining with music is always exceptional
Great service, food and hospitality. Best restaurant in Rutland.
We were all pleased with the choices and willingness of the staff to adjust an order to satisfy our needs. Very well done!!
The food was outstanding! From the starter to the dessert and the Blueberry Bellini. I had the salmon and it was delicious.
Love coming to Roots, always an excellent meal and experience.
SUPERB!! Excellent! Wait staff was friendly and attentive, the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! And don't forget the desserts;-) You've got to try them ALL!! You won't be disappointed, just a wonderful meal from start to finish!!
Side room with music is cold feeling and has a lot of echo. Decorating could be improved. Food was top-notch snd the service is probably the best in Rutland.
Very nice overall dining experience. Great service, plate presentation was excellent, food was very good.
Food was better than expected! The grilled Caesar Salad is a must! I definitely recommend this place. I will come back soon for more!
We thoroughly enjoyed the cheese fondue, risotto and burger. We can’t wait to go back!
What a great addition to Rutland!! Really cool atmosphere and vibe, on top of the location. Great service, friendly staff, yummy cocktails and delicious food! Will be back!
Loved the food but was not crazy about the ambiance...there was no warmth or class to the dining area!
Everyhing we are was fantastic! We had the porkbelly and brussels sprouts appetizers. The brussel sprouts were sweeter than we expected, but still excellent. For the entree we had the stewed pork and the scallops dishn and the bannanna and creme brulee deserts, all wonderful!
We both had scallop salads which were awesome. Service was great.
Always consistent with food and service. Delicious and professional. The guitar player was an extra treat.
The entire experience was wonderful!! We also felt very COVID safe.
We came to Roots expecting the wonderful and interesting menu that we’ve had in the past. What we found instead was very ordinary. We could find that menu in many restaurants. Although the meal was good, we were very disappointed.
Was a great experience and the food was amazing! Excellent service!
Best place to go great meals and beverages......superb service and special requests honored happily.
The service was amazing. I was on crutches and the entire team was really accommodating and helpful. I made a note in my booking that it was my boyfriends birthday and the servers added a candle into the dessert we ordered - it made the experience feel so special!
We have been going to Roots for years, and miss Cary ..however, your new way of ordering food is terrible...first of all they told us that some android phones work and others don't, well mine did not, so they told me to get the menu off their website...well guess what , I ordered two items, and both were not available, the waiter told me that the website isn't always updated...GREAT...and try ordering a bottle of wine off the phone...I really think with your prices, you could afford to run off paper menus.
Delicious, freshly (and perfectly) prepared food. Service was excellent.
Roots never disappoints. Like ever. Always a go-to for date nights!
Excellent food, music, company and service. The mural room is spacious, pretty and is great for entertainment.
Our waiter Trey was great. Food was great. Will go back
