Last summer my husband and I visited Roots while on our first trip to VT. I had the shrimp salad and was delighted by that choice. Thanks to Jen who recommended that entree! So when we returned to VT on Sunday, April 13th we were anxious to revisit Roots for a great dining experience. They did not disappoint. The curry... More

The title says it all. I cannot recommend this highly enough. If you only have one meal in Rutland, make it Roots.

This was an excellent restaurant, very friendly and there were single couples and families. I live in Charleston SC where the food is unexcelled, locally sourced and varied.

Excellent food with an emphasis on Vermont grown ingredients. Service is good. The only problem is that it's small and can be crowded.

Roots distinguishes itself by the quality of its food and the extraordinary service. The dining area is small though and some tables have you sitting elbow to elbow with others. It's a cozy place but not every table can be cozily placed in this size place. If you like farm to table fresh food exquisitely prepared and excellent service, Roots... More

Outstanding, great quality locally sourced food! After visiting the Salt Cave we decided to have lunch here. What a great choice. Our food service specialist Melissa was great, knowledgeable, and geared toward direction based on our tastes. The food was fresh, delicious, and well prepared with attention to taste and presentation! We highly recommend visiting the Root when in Rutland!

My husband and I had a great time at Roots. The waitress Jenn was very attentive, professional and knowledgable about food and wine and helped us with our selection. They have an awesome wine list. We ordered the cheese plate for appetizer and it was delicious! My husband had the meatloaf and I had the lemon curry tofu and it... More
