We've been to Root Down a few times and it never disappoints. Variety, ethnicity, dietary needs met, and flavor flavor flavor! Utilizing sources as close as their very own gardens takes the freshness level to new heights. Root Down is a must for any foodie looking for something to delight and entice.

I have not been to the W 33rd location but always take advantage of Root Down's DIA airport location whenever I need food at the airport. It is real food at reasonable prices in an airport (what a concept!). Excellent, speedy and friendly service and delicious food.

I was invited to this restaurant by a vendor with my company. I had never been there or had even driven by. WOW!! The food was awesome and the waiter did a great job of ducking in and out during their presentation. I plan to go back with my family and friends!

Flight delayed, I head over to C concourse to enjoy this fabulous airport establishment. Service is always impeccable and food divine. Highly recommend this Farm to Table dining experience.

This is how dining out should be done. The food was fresh and well presented. I found the waitstaff (especially bartenders) to be very responsive, friendly, and attentive without being annoying. If you are flying in and out of Denver, there is location at the airport. The food is worth arriving early before your flight.

Great little place. Excellent service, fresh tasty food. Definitely make a stop here! We had brunch and my lox bagel was spot on. My daughter had the fried egg sandwich and if a clean plate is comment on quality, I would say she enjoyed very much. This dining experience is not inexpensive but worth the cost. $40 for lunch and... More

Root Down aims to connect the neighborhood to a dining experience in the same way ingredients are connected to food. There should be a seamless bond between the elements and experience, which stimulates the senses and draws people in. Root Down serves “globally influenced seasonal cuisine,” which basically means we go where inspiration leads us. We’re not tied to one style or genre—we’re hoping to create one of our own. At Root Down we pride ourselves on striving to solve the ‘Omnivore’s Dilemma.’ We have created a dining spot where all dietary needs will be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten free; also allergies or intolerances are always handled professionally by the kitchen team. Our menu has icons reflecting this philosophy, though we always request you notify your server of specific needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
