Cost me two days pay to feed four and I would do it again in a minute. The food was small plate, share portion, tapas style. Everyone had a bite of everything and it was all more than fantastic. Oh and the service was notable as well.

Great place! I love their food. So nice to have a true healthy eating place in the area. Now at the airport too! Highly recommend almost anything on their menu, but I love the tofu scramble.

My husband and I went on a Sunday night before Valentines and got right in to sit. We had never been before and we will definitely return!

We walk to Root Down for its happy hour 4-6:30. The jerk duck wings are spectacular. The heat builds slowly and the sauce is savory and there is plenty of it. The sliders are excellent as are the tacos. The staff are some of the best in the city. One bartender gave us a free dish that had been made... More

The food is ok and the restaurant is nice. There is a good vibe but the food needs improvement. I don't think I will be back

Seasonally changing menu. Locally sourced. I'm always amazed at what Justin Cucci's crew serves. This or Linger should be on your bucket list when visiting Denver. There's also a branch of RT at the airport (forgot the terminal), which serves some of the better airport food! Love the globe ceiling at the airport location

Description
Root Down aims to connect the neighborhood to a dining experience in the same way ingredients are connected to food. There should be a seamless bond between the elements and experience, which stimulates the senses and draws people in. Root Down serves “globally influenced seasonal cuisine,” which basically means we go where inspiration leads us. We’re not tied to one style or genre—we’re hoping to create one of our own. At Root Down we pride ourselves on striving to solve the ‘Omnivore’s Dilemma.’ We have created a dining spot where all dietary needs will be accommodated, including vegetarian, vegan, raw and gluten free; also allergies or intolerances are always handled professionally by the kitchen team. Our menu has icons reflecting this philosophy, though we always request you notify your server of specific needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
