We arrived late not knowing there would be traffic issues as a result of farmer market congestion and parking. There is a need for better info regarding parking. We were let to believe we might find parking behind the restaurant but we could find no signage related to either the restaurant or restaurant parking. A little frustrating but the dining experience more than made up for it.

Hats off once again to the gang at Root & Bone! The menu is ever changing and the food is outstanding. You won't find anything like it in Niagara. It's certainly a destination restaurant, worth the drive!

Service and food was amazing.
The 2 seater tables by the window are great however, if you are taller or wear high heals it’s a tad uncomfortable.
I’ll wear flats next time!
Great job!

I had the Buffalo Rib Eye, it was brilliant. My wife had the Scallops. We were regulars when it was Zest. I love most of the changes to the atmosphere. Service is always good, the seating had me looking out of the window, which took off some of coolness of the experience, because I could not see the kitchen. They reconfigured the seating to get some extra spaces, which puts one person from each table at the window facing the street. Part of the magic, at least for me, is to watch everything going on in the kitchen. New menu out in less than two weeks, we are looking forward to it.

Excellent food and service. A bit pricey, but the quality is certainly there to support the price, both in food and service. We found the restaurant to be very noisy which did take away a bit from the ambiance.

This was our first visit to Root & Bone and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The staff was energetic and helpful. Our one complaint was the noise level. There was a group of about 8 people at a table and 2 of the guests were extremely loud. Perhaps pictures or some kind of sound muffling would help. I practically had to shout at my husband. Does not add to the ambiance.
Otherwise a great evening.

Our group of eight was celebrating a fun reunion. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Root&Bone. The scallops were amazing, the venison superb, the lamb delicious! The desserts were so very yummy. It was fun to watch the “kitchen in action” from the mirrored reflection. Our server was excellent, the ambience-warm and welcoming. Yes the price tag for the evening was a little steep...but very enjoyable!

Visiting here from Arizona and decided to take family out for a nice supper and decided to try the Root and Bone. In my working life I have travelled all over the world and eaten in many fine restaurants. In my opinion The Root and Bone is one of the best. The food was brilliantly prepared, staff friendly and attentive and a good time was had by all. A great place to go to celebrate a special occasion.

Lovely as always. Food was absolutely amazing, service was exceptional. This is our go-to restaurant in Niagara for treating ourselves to a nice meal. Prices are average to Toronto restaurants at the same level. You won't be disappointed by Chef Ray’s menu (he is the Executive Chef at Fallsview Casino Resort)!

Loud patrons, despite only about half of the tables being occupied, distracted from the experience, the more so when one departing party called out across the room to another still seated. Obviously not within the control of the establishment--more a statement on the continued decline in public manners. That said, hard surfaces promote prolonged echo, and quiet conversation was difficult even minus shouty exits. Closer to home, the waiter continually referred to my wife as, "Dear," which was overly familiar in any event, the more so coming from someone so young. "Ma'am" and "sir" are all that are needed. Finally, the lack of an amuse bouche, and bread, was a disappointment for such an expensive menu.

A nice meal. I had the fritters as an appetizer. They were very average. Too beady and mealy. Not enough flavor. My entree, beef tenderloin was excellent. The root veggies tasty. It is noisy as it is very small and others are loud talkers. Also, tasty bread with flavored butters would be a great addition as they serve no breads to start the meal. The culinary experience could improve. The service was attentive and very gracious. All in all, a nice experience for a small village eatery.

The noise level was too loud for comfortable dining (music). It did not lend to hold an easy conversation. Paying $5.65 for bread to go with the appetizer and wine is inappropriate, considering the price of the meal.
