This is one of the best restaurants in Morganton! Their dishes are all amazing, and their staff is wonderful as well. They have an extensive draft and bottle beer selection featuring local breweries. They just opened up a pizza oven in an attached restaurant that makes fresh pizza that is very good. Their menu changes from lunch to dinner, and... More

We absolutely love to go to Root and Vine. It's great for a special occasion, or for wood fired pizza with friends. They even went the extra mile to make my husband an almond cream cake for his birthday. So wonderful. We never have a bad meal, service always warm and friendly. Please go, you won't regret it!!!

I have had lunch at Root and Vine multiple times with friends and family. It is a great place as it is centrally located in the heart of uptown Morganton. Excellent atmosphere, delicious food and attentive service.

Root & Vine is not one of my favorite places to eat for lunch, but recently, my friends and I had a lovely dinner in the evening. The food was excellent. I had grilled Romaine, shaved parmesan house caesar with focaccia and crab cake Napoleon, fried green tomatoes, and sauce remoulade. All of my friends said they enjoyed their meals.... More

Five of us and we had 4 different meal's. They were all excellent. It was a birthday celebration and deserts were also excellent. Service was slow to start but got up to expectations quickly. Mixed drinks were good. Had the Trout, seafood mix, duck and steak. All prepared perfectly. A little on the high priced side, but very good. I... More

Most everything about this place was average. Service started out poor but with a comment to management it became excellent. The meals were fine ... just not memorable or fantastic. I suspect that for a town this size, they are one of the best. My rating is based on world travel.

Dessert was also superb. Service was great the night we were there and our server was knowledgeable about the menu and we ordered her recommendations which were specialties of the... More
