The décor and food is described as "rustic European," and the service style is "como viene" where they basically bring out the food as soon as it is ready, and all dishes are meant to be shared in a communal fashion.
Here is what we ordered:
- Watermelon Salad: Watermelon salad, mizuna, feta, pistachios, coriander & brown butter vinaigrette
- Fried Broccoli: Fried broccoli, parmesan, pickled jalapeño aioli
- Hawaiian Blue Marlin Sashimi: Sashimi of Hawaiian blue marlin, banana peppers, garlic oil, cilantro, grilled peaches
- Pork Sausage Wood-Fired Pizza: Pork sausage, tomatoes, mozzarella, onions, fennel, pecorino, fennel pollen
Overall, the food and the craft cocktails were very good, but overall the service bothered me. The servers were nice, but there were a few key details that detracted from the experience. First, they neglected to bring out new plates with every dish that they brought out, nor did they notice that this was an issue so I had to ask for new plates. For example, my little plate covered in marlin sashimi and olive oil was not the appropriate spot for my pizza. Also, I didn't like the t-shirts the servers were wearing, and they almost felt too casual. I know that sounds minor, but we both actually picked up on the weirdness of it so I know it was not just me! I would also note that the volume level was somewhat loud in the dining room.
I would certainly go back, but I don't feel the need to do so. I miss Roots a little bit.
