Description: This is a exceptionally unique vegetarian-vegan restaurant that was far ahead of the curve when it opened in 1977. All menu items are made in our kitchen. There is no such thing as a pre-packaged item that is micro-waved, and then served. Whether it's fresh corn in the summer or delicious home fries for Sunday brunch, it's all the genuine item. We have a network of local farmers who provide us with seasonal produce and another network of suppliers able to provide us with additional, delicious organic items all year round. We have one of the best vegan menus in the country. Our effort to have a taste experience ready for you is balanced with the nutritional and health benefits that comes with a authentic vegan diet. Visit and taste.... Thanks

Having enjoyed meal after meal at Bloodroot I have to say they do a great job- its a unique place with a relaxed atmosphere - beautiful water view and excellent dishes. I prefer Bloodroot over G-Zen I find that with Bloodroot the show case the vegetable not try and turn it into something its not

Had my daughter's baby shower there and it was amazing. The food is excellent and the ambiance outstanding.

Simply put, the food is very average. The great reviews I suspect come from vegetarians or feminists trying to promote the business of kindred spirits, or perhaps simply have limited taste buds. In any case, in my two visits, one for brunch and one for lunch, given the hype and the quaint location and layout, I really expected an experience... More

the ambience of this restaurant is a very strange one. Not sure if its catered to lesbians, but there are pictures of women, I was the only male in this place. the selection of meals was also very bland

This is truly an outstanding restaurant. It has a view on the water, an ambience that will charm you, gracious staff and great food. This is a different type of restaurant for all the right reasons. The food can not be beaten. I only wish it was closer to where I live.

I've been to Bloodroot several times and never been disappointed. Though not a vegetarian myself, I love everything I've had here - especially the vegan burger! The atmosphere is comfortable and unassuming, and the staff is very friendly. Name sure to check the menu online before you go though, as it is seasonal. Highly recommend!

freshly made vegetarian food tasted great! Especially enjoyed the mustard green soup and the veggie burger made with quinoa and brown rice. Too bad they had run out of the cranberry pie on the menu as I was looking forward to trying it. The waterfront view was nice, even in the winter and we look forward to returning when we... More

I have been eating at Bloodroot for many years. I love that you bus your own table (it's really easy). I love their regular menu options, like the Spanish omelette with manchego cheese, or the Caesar's Wife salad, made (of course) without the anchovies but just as tasty. I also love that they are always innovating and adding new seasonal... More

This is definitely a once-and-done restaurant for me! The quality of food is mediocre at best, portion is small and price is exorbitant. I recently had brunch there with a group of friends. An omelette with three eggs with no side or toast or English muffin sets you back at $7. They offered mushroom omelette and roasted peppers omelette. My... More

I am concerned that you were reviewing another restaurant instead of Bloodroot. *We have no English muffins *We don't deep-fry our home fries *All our menu items are a la carte as every selection is handmade and home-cooked. *Our sign on the wall by the chalk-board has been displayed for 37 years, that we will hold back an item, but...
