This is a delightful place -- charming with fire blazing on a frigid morning, and equally warm wait staff. They serve breakfast and lunch, and it was delicious!

Great Choice for lunch or brunch. We have eaten at Roost several times. The owners and staff are very warm and welcoming. Bloody Mary's are fantastic- they also offer a nice selection of wine, cocktails and craft beers too. I love the tree that grows "through" the bar. Every menu offering we have tried was amazing. My personal favorite is... More

It was a late winter evening with light snow swirls from the cold wind. Inside in the bar area it was warm and cozy . We had an Open Table reservation for a high table there. We started with a glass of Chardonnay. Aldo, one of the proprietors came by our table to say hello to welcome us. We started... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, with homey touches. We were very surprised by the interior from the appearance of the outside - it looked much bigger inside! The deco was tasteful and not overdone. We both had Eggs Benedict, one gluten free, and they were delicious. Hand sliced ham, eggs were perfect, and the hollandaise was great. The tomato chutney tastes more... More

Visited here for a lazy Sunday brunch and it was not disappointed. I had the roost which was tasty. The biscuits were flat not as flaky as I would have hoped but the gravy made up for it. My boyfriend had an omelettes which was fluffy and the best part was you could add griddled muffins as the toast. Great... More

We decided to try Roost because we heard great things about it. When we got there the server showed us a wonderful table and brought us a cocktail quickly. The food was delicious and hot which is what my husband likes . I would definitely return to this restuarant in the future.

On Dec. 31 my husband and i went to Roost for dinner. We were seated and ordered drinks. We felt we were being rushed to order. The drinks were good and within 6 minutes of ordering, our dinners were on the table. So much for slow roasted chicken. The chicken tasted good but pink inside. Total turnoff! The short ribs...

My wife and I had been to the Roost many times when it was in York. This was our first visit to the new location and it did not disappoint. A large dinning area with ample room between tables. Nicely appointed. The food was as we expected, excellent and the service was attentive.

Looking for relaxed setting to take family and friends up for holiday for breakfast. Roost was just the spot. Great atmosphere, superb food and exceptional and friendly staff. Large group all had something different to eat and none were disappointed. Great food prepared well and all served at once. Kudos to the kitchen! Setting was perfect to share good times.

Thank Doug B
