NYC prices and quality of food without the tolls. Expensive but very good. Have some sliders and appys at the bar and enjoy the experience without dropping a safe on your wallet.

Steaks are superb as is the atmosphere. And the bar scene is also great. Expensive but worth it. Try the shellfish appetizer sharing plate for a special experience

As far as suburban steakhouses go, this is as good as any. Pretty standard steakhouse fare, wine list is a little price inflated like other Harvest restaurants, but the food is reliably solid, and the popovers they bring to start, are phenomenal.

Everybody treated us the way we are supposed to be treated. I've been to some of the fanciest restaurants and the service has been mediocre . At roots the atmosphere is excellent the food is excellent and the staff is excellent.
