Root & Vine is not one of my favorite places to eat for lunch, but recently, my friends and I had a lovely dinner in the evening. The food was excellent. I had grilled Romaine, shaved parmesan house caesar with focaccia and crab cake Napoleon, fried green tomatoes, and sauce remoulade. All of my friends said they enjoyed their meals.... More

Mixed drinks were good. Had the Trout, seafood mix, duck and steak. All prepared perfectly. A little on the high priced side, but very good. I... More

Most everything about this place was average. Service started out poor but with a comment to management it became excellent. The meals were fine ... just not memorable or fantastic. I suspect that for a town this size, they are one of the best. My rating is based on world travel.

Excellent food and excellent drinks. Tried 2 different specialty cocktails and both were awesome. Use of herbs and a high quality chef and menu make this place a pleasurable experience. Dessert was also superb. Service was great the night we were there and our server was knowledgeable about the menu and we ordered her recommendations which were specialties of the... More

My wife had the duck and I had the salmon. We each had arugula salads which is extra charge. All were excellent and well prepared., The salmon was cooked just right. We had to ask for bread which seemed unusual. There was a good selection of wine and beer. The atmosphere is OK. The service was good. The sweet potatoes... More

Anyone that likes this restaurant needs to go eat at the vintage house in hickory nc . The price is about the same but there is more food. The quality is better and the service and atmosphere is great.

My wife and I visited the new Pizza side of this fine restaurant last night, Dec. 3. First let me say that Root & Vine has been a favorite, excellent food and service. We have 50+ years visiting pizza parlors and my wife worked for years at one. The table layout was ok, but not cozy. Interesting walls, but need... More
