“Love the Dips!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We visited Root in June and were pleasantly surprised with all the choices forgourmet meals or food for small get together,s. The dips are awesome and the selection is very good. The place is small and tucked in a little Plaza right next to Nage.

“Root Gourmet Rocks!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Root Gourmet has something for everyone - dine in or take out and a menu offering meals and sides for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans.

My family and I opted to stay at Root and eat. We had the Chicken Flatbread with spinach, roasted tomatoes and chili cheese, the Quinoa & Root Salad with beets, carrots, watermelon radish, spinach, and the seared mahi with peach sauce and roasted veggies --added a pasta side salad and green tea and we were in heaven. Oh, and the homemade chocolate chip cookies were a nice end to a fabulous meal.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the meal so much we came back the next day for our carryout lunches - falafel sandwich, chimichurri chicken wrap and roast beef with vermont cheddar.

This is our new go-to spot when we visit. The quality of food is exceptional, and the prices are reasonable. This is a wonderful option before heading to the beach for the day or to take back to your room or if you live in the area they offer numerous 'Gourmet To-Go' options--just heat and eat.

This is a wonderful establishment and deserves your business!!

BTW--Check out the very cool bathroom :-)

“Always a surprise...in the BEST of ways!”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

Where do I start? The selection of food here is amazing. Great for a full meal or something to snack on. A-MAZ-ING desserts and breads. It's certainly for a discerning person, not your average far at all. It's culinary perfection.

“Gourmet at Home”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

My favorite restaurant, Nage, has a sibling, and it's where I visit when I need my gourmet fix to go! Great food with knowledgeable counter servers. Tastes are cheerfully given and there is a free pamphlet with directions for re-heating. Party in your future? Cant' get in to Nage? Want gourmet food on your porch in your bathing suit? This is where you go!!!

“Good for carry out dinners when you don't have time to cook”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Great carry out dinners at Roots. You can either buy individual entrees with two sides or their dinner for four which comes with two sides, plus a salad and bread (fabulous bread). The dinner for four is $44 and a great value.
