"Food was amazing. Problem was it took one hour for the appetizers to arrive. Our first round of drinks arrived 45 minutes after ordering. If it hadn't been raining we would have walked out. The two waiters who took care of us seemed to have just had a lobotomy. This restaurant should provide a disclaimer that even if they only have 4 tables seated your meal will be a four hour ordeal with an incompetent front staff. Every request we made (including repeating our orders for drinks that we never got ) we were made to feel that it was such an inconvenience."

"Food is fabulous, very tasty; service is excellent, our waiter's recommendations were right on! This is fine dining that is completely unmatched by the plastic "lawn" chairs and lack of table linens, which doesn't bother me, but my husband always comments on it."

"I went with the family for dinner. We ordered scallop and fried chicken. The scallop was very fatty. The chicken was over salted. Salads that went with dinner's dishes were good. But we couldn't eat scallop and chicken at all! So, I can definitely say it was the worst new eve diner in my life. The dinner cost $100 and it was the same that put that money into the garbage bin. No difference."

"We arrived late into NOLA for vacation and were staying around the corner from Root at the Omni Riverfront.
We took a walk looking for dinner and stumbled across Root.
We sat outside and had the cheese and meat board. It comes with pickled fruits and veggies and all of it was great ! We did not even order dinner since we were so full after the huge app..
Try it out for sure."

"We visited two years ago when we were in town and made it a point to come back when we were back in town. This is an awesome spot for great food and service. I was worried when the scallops dish wasn't on the menu anymore, but everything we ordered was simply amazing: fried chicken soup, tostilocos, salad and fish. You cannot go wrong here!"

"I took two out of town visitors to Root for lunch prior to their leaving New Orleans. They had a good time here for several days before and genuinely felt this was their best experience. Our two wait persons were exceptional not only in a very professional presentation of the food but in very warm, personable conversation with my guests. I have been to Root in the evening before and was always pleased. In making this reservation I noted some reviews that complained of slow luncheon service. This was not our experience. Quite the opposite. Thanks to the Root wait persons for sending these visitors from Maryland off with such a warm feeling for New Orleans."

"Service was well-meaning but slow. Food was ambitious and interesting but uneven--entree was both a little cold and a little undercooked, even after waiting for it for what seemed a very long time (restaurant wasn't busy, and staff apologized--I don't know what was going on in the kitchen). The room is warm-toned, and the place has a nice hip vibe, but it's all hard surfaces, and bare electrical cords dangling from rafters to hold pseudo-industrial light fixtures are not that beautiful a look. Wine list had nice selections at reasonable price."
