Roots is Great!

Wonderful restaurant. Food is exceptionally well prepared. The service is very good. Excellent wine list that is very broad with some surprising good values. The steaks are aged to perfection and very well presented. Treat yourself to a great meal here.

The food here is very creative and excellently prepared. Don't be surprised if your second $7 glass of wine during happy hour goes in the same glass. I also noticed my food sitting ready to be served for several minutes. Still warm/cold enough to eat. Service seems more interested in the conversations with other servers. You'll be greeted by the... More

Went with a large party and everyone raved about how good their dinners were -- halibut, salmon, steak, short ribs, and the pork chop were all beyond excellent. Service was great too -- just had to wait for quite a while for dinner to be served.

Roots has changed. Quality is not as good. Not sure why...very disappointing! Fries used to be fresh now it appears they have gone to frozen fries. Hamburgers don't taste the same. Wedge salad was disappointing. Tried to leave a comment on their website & there is no link to contact them. Wondering if ownership has changed. Won't be going back.

Located in a typical suburban shopping center. Meal was very tasty, pricey, service was excellent. Beet salad to die for as well as an unusual gin cocktail made with lavender simple syrup. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Even have a kids menu.

This spot is known for upscale menu and is a popular spot for locals having a special night out. The food is excellent and the bar area popular. We often enjoy their happy hour menu and drinks. It is one of the more expensive spots to dine in the Camas/Vancouver area but offers a nice spot for a special occasion.

What a lovely find! We went here before a nearby medical appointment. What a treat--- gourmet food for all, impeccable service, quiet and lovely ambience. I would definitely go here again and the folks in the dental office said they go there for special meetings so I guess it is a local favorite.

Crossing the state line can be intimidating, traffic wise that is given the normal cluster-fudge of I-205 between Portland and Vancouver. However, if you can avoid the mind bending rush hour, you have an oasis waiting for you. Don't let the location in a strip mall turn you away. Roots is beautiful inside and the food is top notch.

We went here for our anniversary and were happy we did. We were a bit early, around 6:15, and the kitchen wasn't busy, but all of our service was exceptional. No waiting, generous portions, so I was surprised to read some of the other reviews. Water glasses kept filled, bread came right away, plates taken away as soon as we... More

I hadn't been to Roots for years because of a bad experience buy decided to give it another shot when a friend wanted to go for happy hour. I understand this is an upscale place but the portions are ridiculously small. I ordered the fried oysters got exactly three tiny oysters (and about a tablespoon of coleslaw). I could have... More
