Perfection!

From the spring chicken breast and curry seafood entree to the red snapper special, the flavors and presentation were perfect. There was a mix up with my order, but our server Michael, handled it beautifully. The warm crab dip was excellent as well. I'd say the only negative was the noise level... read more

I love to eat somewhere that has options for those of us who try to eat low carb without us feeling like we are missing something or being overcharged for substituting or just not allowing substitutions at all and Root and Vine is not like this at all. I spotted pork rinds on the menu right away, which was so... More

This restaurant has great food that is local and fresh. The children's menu is great with Mac and cheese broccoli and beef tips, all favorites of my children. They have a large selection of grown up drinks as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Root and Vine in Morganton. My husband and I were celebrating two years and the atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for us! The building and decor is beautiful and our server was wonderful. She made sure that we had everything that we needed without "bothering" us or visiting our table too often. There... More

Our first time to try Root & Vine and it did not disappoint. It is the best fine dining restaurant in Morganton. The staff is very friendly and informative. There is a broad selection of food, it is well prepared, presented, and tastes great. I had an appetizer of PEI (Prince Edward Island) Mussels and the portion was large enough... More

I had heard excellent things about this restaurant, but was disappointed. I'm sure the owner would be dismayed to know how indifferent the wait staff was. She actually brought our check without asking if we wanted dessert, then seemed perturbed when we asked for a menu. The food was also average for the price. I probably won't go back.

Maybe not one of the best meals I have ever had but darn close. Service was excellent, food was well prepared, and atmosphere was warm and inviting. My wife and I both had steak and for the price was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time.

Try the baked brie! Out of this world tasty! While pricy,the food was fresh and prepared to order. Service was top notch. Excellent beer and wine connection.

Root & Vine is very unique, the food is very good. The atmosphere is unlike any in Morganton. The food is a little more expensive than the average Morganton restaurant.
