    We’ve eaten at Roots Coastal Kitchen every night of our vacation except for one thus far. The wait staff has been phenomenal…thank you to Edgardo and Cheyenne for making our evening meals very pleasant! The specials have been fabulous and we have enjoyed then tremendously…especially the mashed potatoes with pesto!

    Restaurant made it sound like it was exclusive and high end by booking with credit card only and sending frequent reminders about penalties if we did not show up. but was a disappointment as it was just an average hotel restaurant with nothing exciting on the menu or in the ambience. It may be ok for people staying in that hotel but definitely not worth a trek if you are staying elsewhere

    I was forced to pay for the Christmas dinner on Christmas night. The price was reasonable - $100 a person. However the menu was unsatisfactory. It was all inexpensive food pork - ribs, ham and roasted pork. The service was mediocre and it was very noisy and they would not seat me in the quiet room. The drinks I ordered were very watered down and expensive. Overall kind of pricey for inexpensive cheap modest food.

    Worst meal ever. Maybe this is not the normal for this restaurant as this was a special Christmas fixed price dinner advertised as: “Celebrate Christmas Day at Roots Coastal Kitchen, with holiday specials, carving station local classics prepared by Chef Ramon Carillo. Prepayment required nonrefundable”. Turns out this was a buffet - never said it was a buffet anywhere. $79 per person plus tax and tip = $100 per person. 20% tip ($60 for 4 of us) just for refilling water glasses. Almost every dish on the buffet was cold. We asked them to microwave our plates. And on top of this, we had to pay for parking. Would definitely NOT recommend, especially for any price fix special occasions.

    The dinner we had earlier in the week was excellent. The buffet on the 25th was average and certainly not worth $100+ per person.

    Food was great and our server Karla was fantastic. However, this restaurant is on a resort property with terrible signage. We struggled to find the restaurant due to lack of signage and spent 40 minutes trying to get off resort property after our meal because there were no signs and all the gates our gps took us to were locked. There is also a $25 parking fee which we were not anticipating.

    I’m a little disappointed bc I made notes in the system for open table bc it was a birthday. The person’s birthday wasn’t acknowledged nor did they do anything I asked in the open door system. What’s the point of making notes or writing anything if you aren’t going to respond or do them

    Came here for our anniversary dinner while staying at the Wyndham. Server was busy most of the evening helping a table of four gentlemen that were more into the wine list than we were apparently. They didn’t have mango for the watermelon tomato mango salad, so they tossed some pineapple chunks from a can into the salad without giving us the option of changing or canceling. The steak was good and cooked well. The mashed potatoes were pasty. Overall, for the cost, I would highly recommend that you avoid this place.

    Excelente servicio, las recomendaciones por la mesera fueron las mejores. El pulpo sabroso y tierno. Las costillas se deshacen solas y estaban muy jugosas. Las peticiones especiales para mi niño de 2 años fueron atendidas de inmediato. Y los precios son asequibles, las cantidades de lo servido llenan las expectativas Excelente todo, volveremos

    Excellent menu and food. My family dined in twice and ordered riots on the go. My favorite meal was the octopus and the ribs were excellent. Also I had a veggie pizza that was really tasty. The banana bread and corn sundae deserts were innovative and delicious.
