They've Lost Their Touch Apparently – Our party of 4 was seated for a 7:30 reservation at 8:15. There was only one server (and one bus boy) for the entire (albeit small) restaurant. No one called in sick...they just couldn't turn tables over. Our order was taken after two other (later arriving) tables... service was all around slow and the server was unapologetic. Host (the father) and the Chef (the son/owner) simply seemed overwhelmed. Their one bartendedr was overwhelmed as well. They need to study "staffing" more. Finally served our meal at around 9:45 and, after all the wait, it was unremarkable.
You'll be pleasantly surprised – Roots gets everything right. Family owned and operated, Root's chef David even makes catfish taste like heaven. I know, that's hard to believe, but try it! The restaurant looks beautiful... kind of glam industrial. It is small and cozy, and but they find room for a jazz trio on Tuesday nights. It is worth the (scenic) drive to Sea Cliff to visit this local gem.
