We love the restaurant atmosphere, the mission behind their food and the food itself! After a couple years of The Root Cellar being our favorite date restaurant..., we hired them to cater our wedding this past August. The team did an absolutely fabulous job! The planning leading up to it was efficient, professional and very friendly and personal. The food was amazing, as always, the buffet looked nice and there was a wonderful selection for all our guests and their dietary needs. While we were on a tight budget, food was not a place we wanted to cut corners but have our guest enjoy a delicious dinner and leave full and happy. Not only are our guests still raving about the food, some of them have already gone back to eat at The Root Cellar Restaurant and others have now hired them to cater their future events. Thank you, Ellie, Paul and Jeff! See More

This place is a hidden find! It is not in downtown London. I was so impressed with this place! It reminds me of Lyfe Kitchen in Chicago.

Upon walking in, the ...restaurant is bright with colorful chalkboards. While I looked at the menu, I was impressed with the diversity of food offered from vegan to meat eaters. I had the toasted cheese and tomato sandwich. It was so cheesey and toasted perfectly. I paired it with their toasted tomato soup. The finishing oil was everything! It gave such a buttery finish and the tomatoes were the perfect sweetness. I even tried a matcha drink with fresh mint and vanilla. They even serve alcohol!!

This was such a cool place and I can't wait to come back!!

My wife discovered this restaurant and promptly had to let me experience it! While it is in the shady part of London it is a great place! Wonderful selection of... organic food and craft beer. This place could easily be one of the secret gems in the city if you like places off the beaten path! See More

We had to wait for a table, that was absolutely on us for not making a reservation though and they worked quickly to find something available. It was 100% worth... the wait, food was delicious, atmosphere was great and the smells in there were superb.
Highly recommend that everyone check this place out, just be sure to make a reservation. I will definitely be back!

My wife and I hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner at the Root Cellar recently and couldn't be happier. We had about 22 guests including many vegans and vegetaria...ns. The food is excellent as is the service. We received nothing but positive feedback from our guests, many who are Londoners, and indicated they'll be back!

Thank you Ellie and team for a wonderful dinner!

Haven't been so impressed by a restaurant in a long time. Its pricy, but there are options that are less. Pesto Aoli, the best grape jam I've ever had, locally sourced, fresh bread. And the fact that your washrooms arent gender specific genuinely made my day.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. Bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Locally sourced organic whole foods!! You can't put a price on good health. An...other reason I love this place is thier vegan friendly menu that still includes a variety of meat and dairy for my non vegan lunch dates to enjoy. See More

Placed an order to go. Food was excellent. However, I waited 40 minutes to get it, and I watched people who came in well after me sit down, make orders, and g...et their food before I got mine. At 25 minutes in I asked an employee about my order. Had I not, I suspect i would have waited longer. I was offered a free coffee for the long wait. However no one I dealt with really seemed to be too concerned with the time it took for me to get a simple wrap.

I also tipped up front. I would advise against this as one cannot be sure if the service will be good or not.

It never disappoints, except when we can't get a seat. The new nachos are my new favourite, especially with the add on of pulled pork. The new deep fried pickle...s on the dinner menu are to die for; would pair really well with a cold brew. And the cider braised cabbage grilled cheese sandwich; OMG, die and go to heaven, delicious. Get on over and find your own favourite. See More

We had dinner Friday night and enjoyed it so much we went back Saturday for lunch. Menu changed from day to day but the variety was nice to see.

We booked a reservation for an event and we're asked to leave 20 minutes before our reservation was over, even though there were many other spaces available and... no one was there. We were made to feel unwanted and I will never host an event there ever again! They need to take a class in customer service. They have great food but the service is obnoxious! See More

Firstly I'm going to state I have no issue with the food, it was delicious, secondly our waiter was super kind and personable. I've given 1 star because the mom...ent I walked in I was greeted with a hostile stare, when I said my reservation it turned irritated, I was seated and told that my group needed to order as soon as possible so that we could be out at a certain time. We knew how long our reservation was for, but I personally found the hostess quite rude and pushy. We all ordered and it came on time, 1 of our group ordered dessert and I had to remind the staff it hadn't come yet, then another of our group arrived, no extra chair was offered for him to sit on, he was told he couldn't order because we had to leave in 30 mins. Then when we suggested he can just get it to go he was able to order but didn't receive his food until again the wait staff had to be reminded his food never came!. One of our group stood and chatted with everyone because no chair was offered.

I've never been to a restaurant that hasn't tried to accommodate their customers, I've worked in customer service for 10 years and I would suggest better training for staff to be more organized and personable. And please don't put someone who's stressed out and angry as your hostess. First impressions mean a lot, to a company. Your food could be fit for the queen but with unwelcoming staff people leave with a bad taste in their mouth.

I've been here a few times now and I'll be back many more. It's like this little hippie, earth loving oasis :). The food is absolutely to die for. I always try ...something new, as well as something from the plate of the person I went with lol The staff are all very open and friendly as well. Just a good vibe all around. Be sure to make a reservation, as it fills up quickly. See More
