Root & Bone
Excellent all around. Would definitely go back and try each seasonal menu.
Service was impeccable.
Outstanding as usual! Food is excellent! I would highly recommend Root and Bone.
Perfect. Incredible. Delicious. GO !!! If you know, you know. We drive 2.5 hours to have dinner. Absolutely some of the best food you will eat. Worth every penny. Cheers !
Amazing service and food! Our first time tonight for a late celebration of my bday this week. We went early and there were already a good number of tables seated. The kitchen is visible from just about everywhere-and the aromas and view!!!!
Our servers were so warm (Sharon in particular was a tie for first in reasons to go) and the decor was spot on for the season.
We had apps, the sourdough bread, mains and desserts and a bottle of wine... just the perfect season and local selections... enough for variety on the menu but not so many as to not be able to give attention to each drink or dish or dessert.
Fantastic creative delicious dishes!
Cannot wait to go back with more and more friends!
Best restaurant in the area!!! A delicious experience!! Just go!!
The evening was most enjoyable.We had an excellent dinner to celebrate a special occasion.The enthusiasm of all the staff including the chef contributed to our perfect evening.
A great evening filled with aromatic and flavourful food made from the heart. The new menu offered many items to be desired.
One of my favourite nights out for dinner, staff are amazing and the food is delicious.
Food was amazing. A new favorite for us. Looking forward to going back
Incredible food. Very generous. Serving sizes were very adequate so you have the fine dining experience without the tiny morsel servings. The owners both visited our table to greet us and were very warm. Luckily they were preparing their fall menu and had given us some free dishes after they were photographed for their new menu.
They graciously offered us a free glass of champagne as well as we celebrated an anniversary. The food is simply amazing, pure, and well crafted. The chef has a great sense of variety of textures, flavour contrasts and proper tastes with each dish.
I wish we could eat like that everyday.
Great food, great service. Will definitely be back.
Amazing food! Our favourite place.
Excellent meal and service!!! Ambiance was fantastic.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Friendly attentive service. Great atmosphere. Good done with care.
Amazing find in Fonthill, I wish this place was open for lunch. Small restaurant with fantastic menu options and every single item on the menu is outstanding. The staff are knowledgeable and extremely friendly and helpful, they made out evening extremely enjoyable. This is our new go-to and would highly recommend it without hesitation.
Had a fantastic meal. Service from Paul was exceptional. Definitely will plan on returning.
Warm and friendly service - very prompt and attentive - food was outstanding both presentation, quantity and quality. prices a bit high for this market.
We had a wonderful experience for my Mom’s 85th birthday. While we all loved the food, service, ambiance and general vibe, the noise level made conversation a bit difficult for those without perfect hearing. We’re definitely going back!
Loved the personality of our server Jaden. Food was fantastic as was presentation. The six of us thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Root & Bone.
We both enjoyed our meals, mine was the gnocchi while my friend had the lamb. They were plated beautifully and so many different flavors in each dish. Good size portions too! We got corn bread brought to the table as a free appetizer which was a nice touch. Cute little place!
This was a place serving food like non I've tasted in a long while. And I've eaten at Michelin star restaurants in France. Hard to believe a restaurant so amazing is in Fonthill
This is one of my favorite restaurants i have ever been to.
Great food and friendly service.
Interior is funky, but pleasant. Could benefit from some noise suppression.
Unique menu. Venison and smoked oysters were delicious.
A little pricy, but acceptable.
The food was amazing. Somehow the chef takes our local fresh produce no matter how humble (such as the carrot or tomatoe) and produces a taste sensation with it. The sauces are outstanding. Meat done to perfection. The service was friendly and sincere. We'll be back soon to work through the menu choices. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked so very yummy!

It's great food. But tip top dollar. Maybe slightly on the overly expensive side. (My entree was 48 dollars) But definetley worth going now and again. Beat dinner I've ever had. Drinks are priced very fair.
All around perfect !
This was our 2nd time visiting this restaurant. Service is great....food is fantastic...location is central. It can be a bit noisy for some people. We look forward to returning
Fantastic restaurant and dinner. Love this restaurants
I travel North America extensively and get to try a lot of different restaurants. The best one that I have found so far and they keep blowing my expectations away is the Root and Bone....Ray, Paul and Jaden..and their team create an incredible and complete eating experience
Simply fabulous in every way! Remarkable staff, presentation, quality, and taste. We will undoubtedly be back to try more items on the menu.
Excellent food great service. Food is super fresh and cooked to perfection.
We had our first experience at Root & Bone this past Friday and it was outstanding! Great service from start to finish. Our food selections (from appetizers to desserts) were so well prepared and presented - absolutely delicious. Truly a culinary delight. Looking forward to many more fantastic meals at this wonderful restaurant!
Amazing as always. Heads and tails above many Niagara area restaurants. Perfect trifecta of ambiance, superb cooking and excellent, attentive service.
Food was outstanding and the presentation was extraordinary.
Great friendly service from everyone
Only issue would be to use a better whiskey for manahattan. Very bland. Certainly did not taint the overall experience.
Amazing food, great service, a little pricey. Definitely one of the best meals we’ve ever had.
Everything was great.
Great food in Fonthill- definitely the BEST restaurant in the area, and in my Top 5 for Niagara/Hamilton.
Appetizers: I ordered the squash blossoms appetizer (as did my friend)- panko breaded and fried with a nice acidic meyer lemon sauce. Tasty! My husband ordered the scallops + morels app, also great, but it was a small appetizer- only 2 scallops. I would have considered 3 scallops fitting for both the price, and the size of an app. But that's my only caveat with that app- I'd still order again.
Dinner: I ordered the striploin, which was perfectly done, and complemented nicely by heritage veggies that were tender yet crisp and full of flavour, and a blackberry demiglace which rounded it out with enough acid to create a great bite. The only thing I wasn't keen on were the "fondant potates" served with my striploin. Nothing about them said "fondant potato"- not the flavourful, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside fondant potatoes that I've experienced at other restaurants and in my own cooking (via CIA and French-trained recipes/chefs). These were dry, flavourless, and a mistake to put on a plate. It makes me wonder if Chef tasted them? My husband ordered the Sumac-crusted venison. He loved it. Our friend ordered the albacore tartare app for dinner and equally loved the gorgeous, silky tuna paired with a lovely sauce.
BONUS: the gorgeous sourdough bread (made in-house) and yeasted butter. Please keep this on the menu! I could eat that on its own and look forward to this experience when we come to the restaurant! They brought out samples of corn bread (hopefully as an amuse-bouche) which was ok, but hopefully not a teaser as a replacement for the sourdough. My mouth is watering thinking about it!
Thanks for putting so much loving energy into your food. I love the open kitchen environment that allows the diners to witness the process or the preparation and plating of our food. Also deeply appreciate the locally-sourced approach. <3
I wouldn’t classify the food as outstanding, but everything was very good with many local ingredients. The open kitchen concept is nice, and the service was excellent. Prices very reasonable in light of the quality.
