Make sure your try the tempura spring onions! Visiting from London was really excited to try some vegan options in Bristol and this place surpassed all expectations!

I had such a wonderful evening,relaxed and informal, very welcoming and fantastic food. My only quibble would be that sometimes the dishes arrived too close together so it became a bit overwhelming. The sea bream was excellent!

Excellent in every regard. I can compare you only to Skosh in York, who do something rather similar to you - small dishes and unexpected flavour combinations - in a rather more elegant manner but at twice the price. I give you and them the same maximum score for quality:price and the good feeling with which one leaves the restaurant.

Really great mixture of dishes. There wasn’t a single item that didn’t impress and we had the whole menu. This type of cuisine is always pricey but good value here. The acoustics in the venue are awful so difficult to hear and the seating is uncomfortable but the atmosphere is great. Thanks!

Before coming I was dubious about "vegetable-led" dining but am now a great convert. The dishes were really tasty and varied - and I loved the way they came out as they were cooked, it encouraged sharing and tasting between the 4 of us. It was accompanied by a delicious Chenin Blanc. The service was efficient, friendly and helpful and I loved the location, over-looking the floating harbour. Cracking' night out!

Some of the best food I have had in Bristol. Really impressed with Root. We had all vegetarian dishes and as a big meat eater I did not miss the meat at all. The cauliflower dish with curried onions and cashew milk, and the beetroot risotto were particular favourites.

Fantastic service and the food was lovely. Only issue is the one and a half hour slot. It’s too short and I felt rushed. Time slot should be extended to two hours. Otherwise a great experience.

The service staff were a delight, the food delicious, and from our seats that overlooked the kitchen we were able to both have banter and receive recommendations from the chef!

the staff were really slow and then we didn't have time for desert or more drinks because the took nearly an hour to take our order when they weren't even busy. And the girl was so rude an unprofessional when telling us to leave our table. I expected better service.

Really good, loved the food, no way you could reproduce it at home, which is what you want when eating out. Try and get table, shared stooled table not very private obviously.

Fab fresh imaginative food. Warm friendly service. Hustled out slightly before end of our 2 hour reservation which was not ideal end to evening but would suffer that again for excellent food
