I have frequented this place many times and the restaurant has delivered great service and awesome food in the past, But, I brought a group today here and it was truly one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. We sat at 630 and...ended up asking the waitress for our check and food to go at 830 since we had still not received any of the main courses. We watched as the dinner bell hit and hit and the drinks piled up on the bar and it seemed the place was woefully understaffed or that they didn’t care. If food was taking this long, would have appreciated the heads up, but lack of communication and watching drinks stack up to be delivered to tables showed this place was very poorly ran. The restrooms were disgusting and got worse every time i visited throughout the night. I’ve seen this restaurant be great - the chef usually is incredible and the atmosphere is great (even during Covid) but, it just seemed like no one gave a crap and it was just a huge bummer. I raved about this place for weeks and it just seemed like a completely different restaurant. I’m gonna definitely give this place another chance and want to amend this review. Please get it together! This place is awesome at it its best!More

The pad thai was not good, the salads were ok, the stir fry not good. Topping it all of, I bet the server was high. Would not recommend or return, Give it a 3 as the one salad (out of 4 meals) was very good.

Martini night is the night to go ..Not too busy in town. You might even find easy parking. Nevertheless. The lamb chops ate by far the best in Rincon. The price is good. Drinks are good. Service is good. Other menu items are good. A...relaxing dinner with my wife and all is good in the world. Give it a visit.More

Okay restaurant at a resort. It's fine. Nothing special and nothing awful. Staff was busy but tried their best.

1/5, which I could leave a 0.5/5... Cocktails are the only good thing going on for this place. Asked if they could prepare their lomein without anything spicy since my wife has IBS, waitress goes to check with the kitchen and says lomein has nothing...spicy. We order it, the plate comes and guess what? It’s spicy after all. I asked for them to take the plate, waitress does without any issues whatsoever, but then the manager comes over to “make things right” and offers other options which I thought was a nice gesture at the moment. Wife finally decides on the salad and fish, and everything is fine so far. 15min later, still waiting for the salad. 25min pass, nothing yet. After 35min of waiting for a salad and fish, we cancel the order and only a I’m sorry would you like a free shot from the manager is offered... are you freaking kidding me?! Ummm, no, I don’t want a shot, my wife wanted a salad 35min ago. She never checked up on us and didn’t really seem she checked on our food. Even though this was St. Valentines day, restaurant wasn’t even full capacity because of COVID restrictions. Needless to say, never going back and making sure no friends or family step foot in this place.More

Waited outside to come in for a hour told that when some one leaves, we’ll be next. Wouldn’t even take a name down. When told we could enter, sat down only to be told they ran out of everything even though we showed an hour...after they opened. Young lady was clueless. Thanks.More

What a great place to visit . It's like going to the beach without an actual beach nearby . Service was excellent and the food was awesome and fresh . We all loved the way the place set up . The music was a little...loud ( we had trouble hearing the waiters recomendations ) and the chairs were a little unconfortable but we will definitly visit them again .More

We were extremely impressed with the flavor, freshness, and originality of the menu at Roots. Our meals included sensational goat cheese balls and an outstanding shrimp Lo Mein noodle dish. The service was perfect on the Wednesday night we were there. It took a little...waiting and polite nudging the next night, when the streets were filled with the ArtWalk across the street in the plaza, but after that we got very good service. INSIDER TIP: The outdoor tables might look filled, but if you're there to eat dinner, they'll ask those who are not dining to move from the outdoor tables so you can sit and enjoy your meal. Strongly reccomend this place for an unforgettable dinner in the heart of downtown Rincon.More

Went there the first night of our vacation and the food was awsome. Loved the fried goat cheese balls and Filet. However we came back with 11 of us and the food was very disapointing. Goat cheese balls were stil very good though.
