This is an upscale steakhouse for sure. It is expensive but worth the splurge for an occasion. Typical to this type of restaurant all sides are extra. The service is impeccable. The wine list is impressive.

I had a great experience here, I was expecting it to be a little more expensive but the price was reasonable and the food was GREAT!

We celebrated our Aunt’s 90th birthday party. Food and service were extraordinary. A singing waiter was over the top, as was the birthday cake. Restaurant, however, is too noisy for my taste.

I always enjoy my dining experience here at Roots, there's never a time I had a bad meal, it is pricey but you get what you pay for. Very intimate dining experience, best for couples at least in my opinion.

Roots offers a fairly standard steakhouse menu and all the food is good. Prices were a bit lower than I expected (though it’s not cheap). Service was also quite good. I had the T-bone which was tasty. We also shared creamed spinach and potatoes which...More

Roots was good, not great. I was not sure of their staff rotation. The person who seated us and gave us menus was nice and prompt. He handed us off to a server who was very visible walking around the room; he just did not...More
