Chef Ray came to the table to say hello, that's very nice and what I am used to (standard) when dining in Michelin restaurants worldwide. The server is very friendly, but wasn't entirely sure of a few dishes regarding one guest who was gluten-free and the information was mentioned in the reservation. That was the only item to note. Otherwise, everything was lovely.

Attentive, friendly service. The dishes are so creative and tasty and every mouthful is a joy. They're beautifully plated giving you a vision of the deliciousness to come. Definitely a favourite place of mine to dine.

We made the decision to make reservations here on Valentines Day to experience their set menu. We had the pleasure of dining here previously and we had great expectations for our return. To our delight Root and Bone exceeded those expectations and made our evening one the the most delicious, sumptuous dining experiences of our lives. Watching our food be prepared was a great treat, ask for the chefs table it won’t disappoint!
Service was exceptional!!!! And the food.....oh the food!!!!! Every single serving was beautifully presented and delicious. Actually, each serving got better and we didn’t think that was possible! We were saddened when the last course was served because we knew the dining experience was coming to an end.
Thank You to everyone who made our evening one of the best Valentine’s Day in our 30years together ❤️
We look forward to our next visit!!!!!!!!!

This is one of Niagara's hidden treasures...but not for long! Chef Ray and his team are starting to get the attention that is so well deserved. If you haven't gone yet, it is worth the drive, no matter where you are coming from. You will become a fan after the first bite!

This was our first visit since they opened and I regret not having gotten there sooner. The food was amazing. We ordered a few appetizers while we waited for everyone to arrive, and the tone was set for a superb meal to follow. Oysters, cauliflower bites, and salmon were all wonderful. It was treat watching the food preparations in the open kitchen. When the mains arrived my scallops just melted in my mouth and the risotto was a perfect complement to it. The venison and the sirloin also got rave reviews from the table. The presentation was perfect, and the service was excellent. The white wine that I had selected was not available, so they upgraded us to a better selection for the same price. Chef felt that our food had not been prompt enough, so he complimented us our deserts. I highly recommend paying them a visit.

I brought my mom for her first time. She absolutely loved it. Our food was really good. She had wine with her meal and I had a cocktail. We were both happy with our choices. The servers are very friendly and personable. The restaurant is small, but it’s cozy. It’s really nice on the inside.

a must try restaurant! The service and the food was great!! Friendly staff with prompt service. The chef is amazing. I’m a bit picky with how my fish is cooked and the chef cooked the branzino to perfection! My husband ordered the bison and my mother ordered the artic char. They were both pleased with their meal. Everything was flawless! I would definitely go back!

Another fantastic meal at Root and Bone! One of the daily specials was duck breast with chestnut gnocchi and fresh fig sauce...AMAZING!!! The lamb was also delicious. The presentation of each dish is always beautiful and the portions are very generous. The restaurant was very busy but as usual the service was efficient and attentive. Wonderful choices in the new menu. We will be back soon.

We saw the Shaw’s wonderful matinee presentation of Holiday Inn. Niagara on the Lake never looked better with the snow, the Christmas lights and the snowy skies. After shopping, we travelled to Fonthill for dinner. Very nice Merlot shrimp appetizer and a sirloin. Everything was cooked to perfection.

We went for. Y birthday which was Chef’s birthday as well and Chef shared his birthday cake with us and chatted with us about the making of the restaurant. We shared the venison. Partridge, lamb, oysters, shrimp,a don sour dough and had two bottles of Barolo. It was incredible! We have already made planes that Jeremy’s Christmas present to his mother will be a mother / son date at Root & Bone!

Amazing service and food! Our first time tonight for a late celebration of my bday this week. We went early and there were already a good number of tables seated. The kitchen is visible from just about everywhere-and the aromas and view!!!!
Our servers were so warm (Sharon in particular was a tie for first in reasons to go) and the decor was spot on for the season.
We had apps, the sourdough bread, mains and desserts and a bottle of wine... just the perfect season and local selections... enough for variety on the menu but not so many as to not be able to give attention to each drink or dish or dessert.
Fantastic creative delicious dishes!
Cannot wait to go back with more and more friends!
