Food was excellent, but very noisy spot and freezing cold. We were first seated by window, we asked to move, it was still cold, had coat on all during dinner. We likely won’t be back, just too noisy.

This place has its gluten-free schtick down pat. I tried the gluten-free Quinoa Risotto with Shrimp, and it was yummy, yummy. I met five friends for lunch and everyone else raved about their choices, as well. AND it always helps when the wait staff is...More

Looking for a new place to try and decided on Roost. So glad we did! It was packed 6:30 on a Saturday night. We chose to sit at the bar and avoided a 35 minute wait (found out they do take reservations). Staff was so...More
