Grassroots & Vine Reviews

Just had the most delicious Margherita Flatbread and not to mention the mimosas are amazing. Kudos to the owner and the chef! We appreciate you as well as your generosity! We will definitely be repeat customers

Angela Russell

Wow, the food and atmosphere is great. All of the food is natural, high quality, fresh, and made to order. They also can make things gluten free. The cocktail list is outstanding!! They also have a small retail store that you can purchase wine, beer, pastries, fish, cheeses, etc. Seems to be mostly local farms and businesses! Have an outside patio and have nights with live music so check out their events page. Great for family or that date night. I will be back!!

Michael Miller

Great atmosphere! And the wine is delicious! The employees and owner are super kind and thoughtful! The ahi tuna appetizer was fabulous! The dipping sauce was so yummy with the kick of lime juice and sesame oil… Oh so good! Can’t wait to go back and try more wine and food!
