Root Food + Wine is a rustic yet elegant, boutique restaurant in the heart of Missouri Wine Country, just up from the Katy Trail, in downtown historic Augusta, Missouri. It offers a locally sourced pre-fix dining experience, either inside the nostalgic 1905 vintage home or outside herb gardens, located on the grounds of Oaks Crossing.

Root Food + Wine is the fruition of a journey started by Chef Philip Day, 20 years ago. Chef Day's philosophy is to offer warm and gracious service, along with the highest quality of local sustainable produce for his cuisine.

The menu changes frequently with seasonality at the forefront. Guests can choose between a 3, 5, or 7 course or an a la carte experience. Craft beer and cocktail and wine options and pairings will always be available.

We were absolutely spoiled. Several members of the staff came to talk to our table as well as the bartender. They were attentive, accommodating, and personal. Chef Phillip Day is a true food artist. The relaxed environment makes eating exquisite food with friends comfortable. Fine dining without the stuffy feel.

Not our first time a won’t be our last to enjoy this fabulous gem of a restaurant. Whether it’s the food or drink, everything chef and resident mixologist prepares is wonderful. Despite being a meat and potatoes kind of guy, at the urging of my foodie wife I went rogue this time and ordered things I didn’t even think I’d liked but was treated to several surprises that I can now add to my menu due to the wonderful preparation. Highly recommend this establishment for a great evening out, then stay at one of the nearby b&b’s.

What we loved…everything! The friendly and approachable service, the impeccable food and flavors, the value, the delicious coffee, the wine. My husband’s old-fashioned … the goat cheese apple and onion tart, the mushroom soup, the sweet potato dessert…the sourdough bread with sesame and pepper butter…I could go on! We will be back!

We had an amazing food experience in a laid back and fun environment. The service was perfect! My son’s birthday was exactly what we hoped for. He is in culinary school and left saying that “Root Food + Wine is exactly how he would love to do a restaurant someday.” We wish we could eat like that everyday. We’ll be back and I’ll tell friends. Thank you!

it was such a memorable and special experience. One we will always remember with our closest friends. The food was INCREDIBLE. Rachel and Zach provided the best service, and we were blown away by the thoughtfulness of chef Phillip for providing one of guests (who has allergies) with a custom menu that she could enjoy as well. We do not go out to dinner anymore because of the allergies....and this made it all possible and meant more than they will ever know. Thank you Root!!! We will definitely be back!!!

This is a great place. It's nicely tucked away into the little town of Augusta Missouri which reminds me a lot of Los Olivos in California. Anyway the food is fantastic the mixed drinks are alway delicious and fun to try. And the serving staff are fantastic. No hovering over you just waiting to snatch up the plate. This place is worth the drive from St.Louis for an evening dinner or if you are in the area from out of town. Oh and don't forget to try the bread!

Roots is a charming restaurant. The service is outstanding. The menu is varied. The food is delicious and the presentation is excellent. The reason I rated the food slightly lower is due to the soup being too salty for our taste. However, we are on a lower sodium diet so items do taste saltier to us. We did note in comments that we do not want finishing salt on our menu choices. That being said, however, the onion soup was more on the order of onion broth with two or three onion slices and one mushroom in it. Technically, I suppose, it did qualify as a soup. The salt level and lack of onions in the soup was disappointing. It was the only item we felt was not on the same level as the other items on the menu. All other choices exceeded our expectations. Overall, we would highly recommend Roots.

We've been so excited to come back to Root, its been a year. The cocktails were interesting, complex, and delicious. The food was incredible, and the service was top notch. Didn't think it could beat last years experience...I was wrong. It exceeded all expectations. Zach, Dylan, and Rachel really went above and beyond. Its such a unique concept, and the Tasting Menu was worth every penny. This will be a tradition in our annual girls trip, for sure!

Root is a foodie’s dream! The 5-course dinner with the coordinated wine pairing were perfectly matched. I mean PERFECTLY matched! Philip Day’s culinary creations are beyond compare. Dylan takes bartending to a level we’ve never experienced anywhere else. His cocktails are primo! Zach’s service and attention made for the crowning touch to a perfect dining experience. To have such amazing food and drink prepared with precise attention to detail, all in a casual, welcoming atmosphere is true perfection!

This was our first visit to the restaurant (and likely last as we live in another state). If we lived closer we would return to this restaurant for special occasion meals. Our server, Lily, was very friendly and helpful, explaining the courses, answering questions about ingredients (for a home cooking foodie), and suggesting great cocktail and wine pairings. The food quality was excellent - prepared, presented and served without pretense. We had a splendid meal and evening at Root!

We loved our lunch experience at Root Food Wine. All of our courses were delicious. We appreciated the beautiful presentation and creative pairings. The staff were incredible, taking the time to explain all of the details for each course. Truly a hidden gem in Augusta. Well worth the drive from anywhere in the St. Louis area.
