"Food was good, not great. Seems the goal is to be unique rather than crazy-good. Love unique but also need to be super tasty too. Not a Nola stop for us. We don't get here enough and are choosy about where we eat."

"The eclectic yet healthy cuisine is a welcome change from some of the heavier options in New Orleans. The menu changed since the last time we were there. On the old menu we were big fans of the crispy duck and the pork belly bowl. We were a little bummed they were not on the menu but the new scallop dish and the chilean sea bass were both very good. We also enjoyed the duck proscuitto."

"Decided on Root after reading a nice review…Spent a week in NOLA and Root was in our top 2 dining experience's for the week…What we all enjoyed was the layering of flavors and pleasant surprise's which everyones meal included. Scallops were fantastic as well as the sea bass. The fried chicken soup was delicious.. When they brought out our desert which had a black olive hazel nut ice cream we all flipped! Equally impressive we're the specialty cocktails.. GO TO ROOT NOW!"

"The food here is different and very good. Everything went well together. By itself some parts of the meal were not that great but if you put some of everything on your fork it was amazing. Lots of work put into crafting the flavors that go together. I was impressed. Takes some time to understand the menu because it's unusual fair."

"Great food and the service was fantastic although that my have been due to it being a slow evening. Definitely a quiet place on this Thursday evening but still among our favorites in NOLA."

"The food was delicious but definitely expensive. The waiter was a bit pretentious which annoyed me, but we really did enjoy the food. If you are looking for eclectic and interesting, this place has got it."

"We decided to have dinner at Root instead of a cajun place in the french quarter. It was within easy walking distance of the Sheraton on Canal Street. We were looking for some interesting flavors and something different than Cajun standards. We were not disappointed. We ended up with the Chef's choice of meats and cheese. The tray was heavy on meat and we would have preferred more cheese. The vegetables on the tray were very tasty. We had also ordered some a carrot dish but did not really need that. Our waitress brought more bread when we needed it to make everything come out even. I really enjoyed a South African wine from Stellenbosch even though it was 20 a glass (which seemed pretty expensive). There were also other good choices. All in all, the dinner was not cheap (although I noticed many of the same choices were available from 5-7 at a lower price). We enjoyed Root and would go again next time we are in New Orleans."

"Food looks amazing, but didn't quite pull all of the flavors together well. Wish we would have skipped the food and tried the sausage, cheese, and charcuterie."

"Had a great meal here. Started with a standalone order of the chorizo and had the crispy pork belly as my main. The pork belly was amazing. The skin was crispy and Caramelized without being too sweet. Great place! Will definitely come back next time I'm in town."

"During a recent getaway to New Orleans, I ate at Root. First and foremost, each dish had amazing earthy flavors to them. I highly recommend ordering a cheese and meat plate to share. The cheeses come from St. James Cheese Company, which are all different but go very well together. The Caveman Blue was my favorite. The bone-in ribeye steak is also a treat. Smoked with applewood and nicely charred on the outside, this whopping 2 lb steak is definitely one you can share!"
