    We’ve loved root down for years! However, they’ve really slimmed down their menu so there are 3-4 choices for small plates or entrees. We had the special - steak Oscar. Small portion for $53! Rockfish thom kha was good but nothing to write home bout. Best part of our entire $150 meal with 1/2 glass wine only for beverages was…the kids plate.

    Excellent place to eat and wonderful atmosphere. Parking was easier than I thought it would be with plenty of parking on Pecos and 35th. Will definitely be back again soon. Wonderful cocktails and very tasty entrees.

    Root Down is my favorite restaurant in Denver. Chef Brendan and back of the house, as well as all the front of house always bring their A game with knowledge and sincere engagement. Like they really want your experience to be amazing. The food is consistently amazing and I love how the menu gets changed up so regulars can experience new creations. Taste wise, I always experience the “wow factor.” Great range of drinks and mock tails. As a long term Coloradan I always appreciate their SporTEA (Boulder based and manufactured). Jana is an amazing server who kindly goes the extra mile.

    Espresso martini. 10/10 music and vibe were perfect for a first date. Easy to talk and get to know each other.

    We’ve gone to Root Down for many years before. Always had great experiences. The waitress was really nice. The beet salad awesome! However, the lamb sliders were pretty disappointing, not sure why they ask what temp you want, wasn’t rare, besides kinda dry, so were the sweet potato fries, and all served luke warm? I had the mushroom tempura, if it didn’t have the sauce on it, I would’ve returned it, not much flavor. My MIL did return it and got the gnocchi, better choice. I’m sad , because we always liked this place.. 🥺 we were celebrating my birthday and Father’s Day..

    Tons of gluten free options and the wait staff is very considerate to ask for any additional allergies. GF apps, meals, and tons of desserts. Cute location, beautiful patio, and very friendly staff. Highly recommend.
