Local Roots (Virginia) - A Farm to Table Restaurant
Super fresh oysters, delicious mussels, and the sauces served with the chocolate torte raised it several levels.
My dinner (& drinks) at Local Roots was phenomenal! My server was attentive and made sure I had an enjoyable experience.
Worst farm to table i have ever visited. Food was not good
Local Roots is a great find in Roanoke, or anywhere for that matter. It's a small menu with different sized plates based on their farm-to-table ethos. Everything was beautifully prepared and extremely tasty. The super-nice staff seemed really eager to please. There's also a wonderful beer, wine and cocktail menu. My only quibble, and it's a small one, is that none of their desserts spoke to me. I guess there's no farm-to-table chocolate layer cake since no one in the area raises cacao.
On a girls weekend trip we had brunch here and so glad we did. Love farm to table, everything was so fresh. The frittata was really good. I had the Monte Cristo, which was amazing. I will come back for this. My other friend had the burger, also very good. The blueberry lemonade was perfect, not too sweet.
Service was great and this place has a great vibe. I will come back next time I’m in Roanoke.
Food was really good. The service was great too.
This restaurant is fantastic-haven't been in awhile but was not disappointed in the food or the setting. Our waiter was satisfactory but did not offer much interaction at all. I got the feeling that he was probably new or busy or both. I realize that hiring staff is terribly problematic now, so that is fairly understandable. I took an out of town guest for brunch and we both thoroughly enjoyed our food! The coffee was not very good but the meal was outstanding and we cleared our plates. Will definitely return and recommend!
We've been to local roots many times. The brunch menu was not exotic, it was pretty standard items executed flawlessly with really nice sauces or extra touches. Service was attentive. We're always glad we decided to visit every time we come.
Lovely, relaxed evening with excellent food and service. We had two discerning guests and all enjoyed their meal. Having small, medium and larger plates makes it easy to try a number of dishes. Cocktails were great.
Lovely experience! Stopped in while traveling through Virginia. Highly recommend.
Fantastic food. Every dish has a story about where the ingredients came from. Staff was knowledgeable and so helpful. A fun place to eat with absolutely great food. The oysters were the best I have ever had.
Love this place and the quality of food they offer.
The food and service, as always, was outstanding. Our only complaint is that the noise level is so loud that it is almost impossible to carry on a conversation without shouting.
From the moment we sat down, we knew this was a special place. It's small and quiet and they are focused on the food which is all locally sourced. The sirloin plate featuring grass-fed queen's beef was divine. We split an order of PEI mussels for a first course and we could not stop talking about them. They were cooked in a broth of rye and white wine with Benton's bacon. Dessert was a bread pudding which we were still thinking about when we returned to our hotel room. We ordered one wine but they were out of so we settled for another, slightly more expensive wine. The restaurant charged us only the lower-priced wine cost, but the substitute was excellent. And, the service was exquisite! At the end of the evening, I enjoyed chatting with one of the staff about chefs that we knew in common from our days of living in Atlanta. This restaurant would be a top restaurant in any large city with a vibrant food scene. Do yourself a favor and eat here whenever you are in Roanoke.
Great spot. Highly recommend
My partner and I had the best experience at Local roots. It was perfect for our belated anniversary celebration. The food was amazing and the service was great! The best mussels we have ever had! New to the area and this is our new favorite place! Highly recommend for anyone looking for local, unique food and a fun atmosphere.
Server was less than friendly and did not really care to check back on our table. We had to ask for more coffee/water, also had to send back an egg's benedict plate because it was very overcooked. Also, the food was not very warm when served to us. The food quality was decent- but the overall vibe from the server and staff was not positive.
it was our first time dining there. The food and service were incredible. We will definitely be back.
Never disappoints! Always a go to dining experience whenever we come into Roanoke.
The food was absolutely amazing. Service was good, not as great as some, but good. This was our first experience here and we will definitely be back again.
In post Covid they were still being cautious as we all are not sure we’re we will be in the near futures.
Service was a bit lacking as there was only two servers and they were being helped by host n bartender
I m sure it was because of the lack of available help.
The food was very good, steak cooked perfectly and PEI mussels very good. Chocolate dessert was filling and decadent.
We always stop here when passing through the area..
We will be back!
Always fantastic food and amazing service! Will continue to return because each time it is always perfection!
The food was spectacular. My husband and I ordered the mussels, NC catfish, the sirloin and the golden rice. Everything was outstanding.
Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Brunch was fantastic!
The eggs Benedict were delicious, but I expected the egg yolks to be a little bit runny, not solid like a hard boiled egg. The wonderful hollandaise moistened the eggs well. Great Bloody Mary's, great service. One of the best places for brunch in town!
Love Local Roots!
Salads can’t be beat! Their seasonal offerings are great, and we are partial to the burgers. Waitstaff & host is friendly, helpful & warm.
Awesome food and atmosphere! Best mussels we have ever had, and the bison flank steak was superb!
The service was exceptional. The food was good, ham in the dish contributed too much saltiness to the overall flavor of the dish. The cheese pairing was outstanding. The bread pudding was very unique and flavorful. The torte was amazing. Excellent wine and beer choices were available. Really appreciated being able to taste test the wine before making a final choice.
Fantastic food and service. Love this spot. We'll be back!
Fabulous inventive flavors. Great service and inviting environment.
Delicious food sourced from local farms in a sweet environment.
Choose this place for the farm to table concept. Unfortunately this dish I had selected in the menu, prior yo arriving was out and had to choose a burger instead. They had other options of course but I am allergic to all seafood so my options were limited. Overall everything was tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. The service staff was extremely nice but service was a little slow. I would come back to try another dish.
A bit of a let down. We dinned on a Sat. night at 8 (reservation), the place was busy and really loud, which was not the greatest for conversation, but still a good energy vibe. The waiter informed us right away that they were sold out of two major entrees, the flank steak and the pasta dish and because of their small menu it left a gap in options. The only other meat option was a bison burger. We ordered the oyster salad, pommes frites (their version consists of large cut potato planks which needed to be way crispier) and blackened catfish with greens entree.
The catfish dinner was tasty but tiny. The oyster salad greens were watery and bland with a very small amount of dressing. The sliced apples, pecans and bacon were ok but the whole salad needed seasoning, salt and pepper! The service was really lacking. I had to get up and go to the bar to get someone to bring our check. Really wanted this to be great since we had not dined in a restaurant in a year and 1/2!!
Did take the chocolate dessert to go and it was yummy!
The food is fresh, innovative, and very tasty. If you have sensitivities, just tell your server and they will accommodate. Gluten free isn't an issue.
I love that they use local organic farmers! Wonderful eatery!
Delicious food in a comfortable atmosphere, great service.
Excellent 4 course dinner! Soup great, cheese plate fabulous in its diversity; mussels succulent; vege platter w/fried egg wonderfully different; desserts…oh my!! Ice cream delicious and chocolate flourless cake to die for! Service impeccable and yet relaxed!
Local Roots provided a comfortable setting and a delicious meal! Being from out of town and not knowing much about the restaurant other than some positive reviews online, I was not disspointed. The staff was friendly, the food was wonderful, and the overall presentation was stunning!
Amazing food, excellent and personalized service, supporting the local community. Definitely a must, if in the area.
Prior to Covid19 we had visited Local Roots on many occasions including hosting larger
business dinners. The food/selection was excellent, the wine list extensive and the service
first class. Our Friday visit was our first back after Covid. The welcoming and service is unchanged excellent. The menu, however, offered less interesting choices and on top of it the kitchen was out of a couple of dishes on an already more limited menu.
We are confident that once things become more normal, especially with the present shortage of help in the restaurant business, that Local Roots will revert back to a Pre-Covid menu. It has always been our favorite restaurant in the valley.
We have been to Local Roots several times now and each time we have loved everything we've had. From service, to cocktails, to seasonally appropriate delicious meals all of it has been an incredible experience. We've talked a few times about wanting to try other restaurants in the area but we haven't because we know at Local Roots we'll have an incredible time together with amazing food.
