When you walk in you know you're in a great place; the dark wood, mirrors, excellent appointments and all-around aura of exceptional service hits you right away.

The food is just perfectly prepared, the service staff knowledgeable and friendly, and while you're probably not coming to Roots for a bargain meal you ARE getting value for your money.

Roots has evolved into one of our top "special occasion" restaurants in the area - well worth a visit.

I was in Summit, NJ for business and ended up eating at Root's Steakhouse twice in three days. You can always count on a good, quality meal at Root's and the service is always top-notch. The menu is a bit pricey, but the food is really good. It's a safe bet for a business dinner and I would recommend it.

Outstanding from the front door until you walk out the door. Tremendous apps, steaks as good as any NYC legend (Del Frisco, etc.). Service was top shelf and never felt rushed. Worth the 15 minute drive from towns like New Peovidenxe, Short Hills, etc.

Pricey but great for a night out with the boys, a big group or a table two for a special occasion.

Interesting that most of the patrons here during dinner were male. I guess steaks really draw us in. This is a very professional restaurant, great service, attentive and unobtrusive, yet liked to have fun with us. I had the scallops which come as an appetizer (4) or dinner (6). The 6 was more than enough. They sit on circles of fried polenta which is a great complement to the scallops. The celery/onion/garlic(?) relish rounds out the flavor palette. Dinners are ala carte with a good variety of sides: we had the grilled asparagus (fairly good), creamed spinach (very good), and roasted summer squash (VERY good, and what was that unique flavor?!). Others in our party had steaks and each commented (often and with gusto) on how well they tasted and done to order. At the higher end cost-wise, but worth it.
