Root 246 at Hotel Corque Ratings and Reviews
We had a 7 pm Sunday reservation, got right in and had a wonderful dinner. Excellent in every respect. The only thing that annoyed us was when we tried to get a final drink before heading home at 9:15, the bartender said he was closing. What? That seem pretty early to close a bar in a high-end restaurant.
Very interesting venue; clearly designed for the "wine tasting" crowd. Food was good, not exceptional. Service was attentive and very pleasant. Seating arrangements were a little uncomfortable, but meant to "be cozy and romantic???" I certainly would recommend it as a place to try!
My family took me here for Mother's Day brunch. We've dined here before for brunch and dinner and had excellent food and service. This time as a bit different. First off, we were seated in some banquet room in the back with all families with young kids (we were all adults) and the restaurant area itself didn't seem full. We were a party of 6 seated at a large table for 8, so that made conversation difficult. After being seated, it was quite a long time before we ever saw our server. He seemed to be rushing around so I wonder if the restaurant was adequately staffed. For the first time, they charged extra for mimosas when they normally have a champagne brunch. The price for brunch was fair compared considering it was a holiday. However, some of the food warmers were low on food and I didn't see anyone coming to refill them. Overall, I would not return on a holiday but perhaps for a regular meal.
We dined here on Saturday evening, 4/22/17. We had extraordinary service by Jessica. Fabulous brussels sprouts; lovely chicken cooked two ways; delicious short ribs! Fabulous vanilla bean ice cream, and fresh pear sorbet and blood orange sorbet. There are several different rooms to choose from; we sat in a very comfy booth in what appeared to be the most formal of the rooms (although it really wasn't formal), just really lovely. Outdoor seating with heaters and cool lights also looked nice upon our exit. I would definitely come back!
All around outstanding dining experience! The room offered a modern yet warm feel. We were seated in a booth which gave us plenty of privacy. It was early and not crowded yet so I can't comment on noise level if the room was full. But with the few tables occupied it was great. The two of us chose a salad, soup, appetizer, entree and dessert to split. Our server and the kitchen gladly split everything and delivered it all with impeccable timing. The plating and presentation was great and the server as well as bus staff all timed their stop-ins perfectly. Really impressed and highly recommend.
Root 246 was perfect. My husband and I had a quiet booth near a window. Our server was good; giving us time to relax and not rushing us. The drinks were very well made; The charcuterie plate was sooo tasty with the candied bacon and other meats, the Harvest salad delicious, and the rib eye was cooked just right with great flavor. We would definitely go back to Root 246.
We have dined here before and have always found the meal satisfactory. Tonight we started with the seafood soup - crab, lobster and halibut - very delicious. The harvest salad was also very good. The short ribs were disappointing; quite dry, and the green beans and baby carrots tasted like leftovers, also very dry. Overall not as good as in the past. Have to rate our overall experience as just average.
Very nice overall. Restaurant is nicely decorated and has very interesting seating. Great wines to choose from. Food was great, had a nice grilled corn appetizer, but it is a somewhat limited menu. Filet was cooked to my order and their garlic mashed potato was outstanding. Good dessert menu and creme brûlée did not disappoint and home made ice cream too.
Went to Root 246 for dinner for the first night of a bachelorette party, and it was perfect! The ambiance was really nice. Our server, Jansen, was so funny and helpful. She did a great job recommending food and wine. We had a couple of pescatarians, and every single person loved their food. We were having a great time and when the food arrived, we became so quiet because we were so focused on eating. Spectacular experience from start to finish!
We've eaten here 3 times and I like it more each time we go. Menu changes as things come into season. My husband was able to customize his dinner (changed his side dishes with his entree). Staff is very friendly and the restaurant is beautiful. I look forward to visiting again soon!
Waited about 5-10 minutes before someone showed up at front desk to seat us.
We were early for our reservation, & wanted to go to Happy Hour first, but missed it
by about that 5-10 minutes, and was not given Happy Hour prices. Waitress not
that helpful or friendly. Once we went to our booth for dinner, we ended up having
same waitress, and she was a bit more friendly at that time. The food was so/so
boring, and not that flavorful. For the high prices, I will not return, nor will I recommend it.
The only good thing about the evening is that they remembered my husband's birthday
with a beautiful strawberry short cake.
food was excellent although slightly pricey. the ambiance, staff, service exemplary. would recommend to friends who can afford a $30.00 entree. my 12 year old is a vegetarian and there were a few options on the menu (only a few) that she could eat. would like to see a more vegetarian/vegan options but in the middle of danish country - might be difficult. would go there again for a special occasion like an anniversary/birthday, etc.
Valentine's Day was a shocker. When I made reservations and checked the web site there was no indication of price tag and special menu at $70.00 per person. 4 course meal. The salad had less than a cup of spinach and was mainly feta/goat cheese and was poorly presented. The mushroom tart had less mushroom than would have liked, the lobster tail portion was small and tough, the cheesecake portion was small and poorly presented with dried chocolate on the bottom of plate- unusable. For $70.00 I would have expected more than what was served and if you are going to charge that much advertise on your web site please and make each plate with attention to detail
We like this place and it is right next to our hotel making it a nice walking to place. The food has always been great and the atmosphere is great. Our wait person was attentive but not too much. Had the Lamb shank and husband had the special menu since it was restaurant week. Both loved our meals and the experience.
This is the first time I've rated this restaurant and although the score is low, that does not mean I will not return or recommend for anyone else to go. Normally the food is outstanding and this particular time (for restaurant week) it was not up to par. I love their happy hour and the ambiance of this place in general and I look forward to going back and trying some other things.
We had a reservation. Another couple walked in right before us without a reservation and they were sat in one of the booths. Why weren't we, having a reservation? That was disappointing to say the least. We were put at a table next to all the other tables. I should have specifically asked for a booth when the reservation was made. But we should have been put there regardless.
Also, a party of 26 was right in the middle of the dining area, so it was very noisy and service wasn't quite as good as it should have been. Again, disappointing.
