“Superb Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

The atmosphere, service and-- yes-- food were, without a doubt, among the highest level we have experienced throughout our entire world-wide travels. Who would think this delightful establishment would be in the little town of Bethlehem, NH? The relaxed environment adds to the incredible dining experience with unique, fresh cuisine unmatched by other regional restaurants. Will plan to visit every time we are nearby.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Was driving through town and was lucky enough to stop in at this restaurant for dinner. Fresh and relaxing, the food was artfully plated and delicious. Wine special was amazing (22$/bottle). We had the tomato salad, smoked trout salad, the duck, the sword fish, and the chocolate cake. The highlight was definately the trout salad, crisp and smokey with a hint of horseraddish. The only criticism I would have is that the tomato salad could have used more dressing and the firm goat milk panacotta that came with it didn't fit, and would have been better with a nice cheese.

“Farm Fresh Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

During out third visit to Bethlehem, we returned to Root for a third time for dinner. On each occasion, the food has been excellent and we have had the same waiter (TJ), who is absolutely wonderful.
In the past, we have had the Korean Lettuce Wraps and the steamed mussels, both excellent. On our most recent visit, we finally tried the 25 Mile meatloaf which was better than any meatloaf we've had before. Our favorite though remains the lobster sausage and we hope it will return to the menu as an entree.
Overall, we like that the food is always freshly prepared and supports local farmers and will be sure to stop by on our next visit to the area.

“Superb lunch, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We had a great lunch at Root, really excellent cooking and very good service. On the basis of that, we went back that evening, which was also very nice, but not as quite as memorable as our lunchtime experience, particularly the service which was slower and less friendly. Still, a very good find and we enjoyed the food.
