First time I set in the new section to the left. Had the tenderloin, it was perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth. The potatoes were good and the green beans were good. Waitress was fantastic, Kathryn. Prices are a little high for Morganton but...More

We had a very nice time at the Root and Vine. The food was good, except one of our orders was very over cooked. The restaurant was very busy and service was slow. I have heard and read good reviews, so I expected more. It...More

Root & Vine (commonly referred locally as R&V) has the atmosphere to have a casual lunch or conduct a business meeting on the outside terrace. A very experienced chef uses local ingredients and is able to serve an excellent trout or the perfect steak. A...More
