The Roost is one of our go-to restaurants in Longmont. Great food, service, and libations. Their Banging' Cauliflower, Blistered Shishitos and Brussels sprouts are fabulous. And we always get them.

Food was excellent, but very noisy spot and freezing cold. We were first seated by window, we asked to move, it was still cold, had coat on all during dinner. We likely won’t be back, just too noisy.
