The kitchen couldn’t process orders quickly enough it seems because the restaurant was essentially full and their patio was also busy. We were not in a rush so we enjoyed the slow pace and the time to chat . The food was excellent. The servers also seemed to be a little too busy to provide the level of service that would be more suitable. It appeared as though there should have been one more server an one more chef to be able to handle the work load.

Worth the drive to Fonthill. Amazing and friendly staff
Delicious and different fresh meals
Can’t say enough good things, reservations needed though so you have to plan ahead when you want to go

This is hands down the best restaurant in the Niagara region. The chef is in plain sight and makes you feel like you are the only person in the restaurant. There is also a nice atmosphere, it is warm, quiet, and cozy.

Great dinner!! Accommodated us on the patio and had the heaters going for warmth. Given that all other guests choose to dine indoors we had a private dinner on the patio and AMAZING service. Food was great and all around a great night under the twinkle lights in the herb garden!!

The weather was storming with rain and you wouldn’t know sitting in the cute little tented table areas with their heaters on. Our server was super nice and the food was incredible. Melt in your mouth delicious!

The Root and Bone has taken great strides to provide a beautiful outdoor dining experience for their patrons during COVID. Having individual decks for each table, covered by tents to keep wind and rain away, and providing a beautiful atmosphere of music, plants and lights for each dining setting is above and beyond. The food continues to impress, with local fresh ingredients, freshly prepared, artistically displayed when platted, and wonderfully delicious. We have not been disappointed in our many visits to this fine restaurant.

Always love to go to one of our favorite restaurants. Perhaps because of C-19, we've found the menu has remained the same for a long time and although the specials sound great, we would like to see a changeup.

We savour every moment when dining at Root & Bone!! Everything is perfect. They have created a beautiful ambience and dining experience outdoors during our pandemic. In fact, it rivals the indoor experience. Thank you to Chef Ray and all staff for your extra efforts!

The only criticism was what was included in the appetizers .... the cost for (2) scallops seems a little steep ... I was expecting at least 3-5 (depending on the size). Same for the crab cakes. But everything else was excellent .....

Our meal was fabulous right from the Peach and Lavender sangrias, to the zuccini and chick pea fritters, to the amazing beet soup and finally our entrees Veal chop and Short Ribs. Attention to detail was apparent in every dish served to our table. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu. Dining outdoors was just an added bonus, the patio is nicely lit and decorated. We'll be back, loved it, highly recommend!

Great menu, even though it’s shortened for the current climate. Food was all excellent (Cheesecake is DEADLY) and the vibe inside the restaurant was excellent. Back, lower patio is gorgeous too. Will try that out next time. Service was impeccable. Sharon was funny, authentic (I can’t stand fake server voice), knowledgeable of the menu and was at the table whenever we needed her...not more....which is hard to do. We’ll all be back, great experience over all!!!
