This was our first time at Roots so first impressions are important. On opening the door I noticed the music and thought, it's going to be a good night and then the front of house gentleman came on the scene. Having been shown to our table we were then bombarded with a very loud and long explanation of your extensive menu. Admittedly I had left my reading glasses at home and the lighting was very subdued, but having already checked the menus online we were pretty sure what we had decided on. The food was interesting and very nicely served by two young ladies who were quietly spoken and explained the dishes very well. Unfortunately the night was not enjoyable thanks to that very loud voice which continued explaining the menu and wine alternatives to every table. To me, Roots Restaurant is not the place to go for a quiet romantic evening.

Superb food and exceptionally attentive & knowledgeable sommelier. Wine pairings were perfect on the tasting menu. Environment is chic and relaxing but on the occasion we went the atmosphere was marred by two large noisy groups. We were reassured that the booking policy will soon change to reduce this risk. Our bill was reduced to compensate even though we never raised this as an issue. We were impressed by this and will definitely return soon. The bread here is really good!!

A dining experience for the senses! Delicious, inventive food with amazing service. Front of House man, Geza makes the best Gin Martinis. Highly recommend the mid-week menus. We can hardly wait to go back.

The most amazing experience. I came with my family from France. We were 6 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was exquisite. The wines fantastic and the service was brilliant. The head waiter couldn’t do enough to please us. Wishing you the success you deserve with all that hard work you put in. The combination of tastes, the quality of products you use are mind blowing. We will be back very soon. Thank you

A tiny,tiny point... there was a young man serving who was very polite and informative ... he didn’t put the food in front of me but slightly to the side so I had to move my plate each course. I am only commenting because I know you seek perfection. The food was exceptional and we particularly commented on the cod and the lamb. Hope to see you soon. One other thing for constructive comment... it’s not easy to book online with my iPhone... don’t know if that’s been mentioned before?

We had the classic menu and were blown away by the quality of the food. The service was great and we appreciated the dishes being explained as well as the wines.Each course was presented beautifully and portion sizes perfect. Particularly loved the lamb and the potatoes ,all the dishes were a treat as you'd never be able to recreate them at home...exactly why it's such a treat to eat here. Cherry dessert was astounding ! Definitely a place we will be returning to again.

Roots was a thrilling experience, and I would thoroughly recommend this to my friends. The food were sensational, staff were sincere in their servicing, and they made my girlfriend feel spoiled on her birthday! I would have liked more explanations about each course, however this is a minor thing compared to the overall high quality of the evening. Thanks again, Austin and Briony.
