Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My significant other took me here for Mother's Day. It was absolutely wonderful! We have eaten here before but not for Mother's Day Brunch. We got there a little early because we were fortunate enough to get a parking place right across the street so...we sat at the bar and had a Bloody Mary. Service was wonderful and so was the drink. We were then lead to the dining area overlooking the atrium in the hotel. Just beautiful. We had breakfast food then desserts. Everything but the eggs were delicious. The eggs were not seasoned at all but we added our own salt. I got one plate of desserts for us to share. They were all excellent! We will definitely be returning!More

This is the restaurant attached to the Hyatt Regency hotel. As a guest at the hotel I had breakfast here every morning and one dinner. The breakfast buffet is cheap, low quality that's vastly overpriced. They charge $15 for a cold continental buffet and $21...for the hot buffet, which includes made-to-order eggs and waffles. With the exception of made-to-order eggs, the entire buffet (both hot and cold) is equivalent in quality and selection to the free breakfast at lower end chains. No smoked salmon, no cheese other than shredded cheddar or American cheese, no English muffins, no oat milk, no freshly squeezed juice, etc. I ordered the $15 cold continental breakfast and the waitress every morning charged me for the $21 buffet. The breakfast sandwiches at the Starbucks, also in the hotel, are better than the buffet offerings at the restaurant. Dinner was better. Service was attentive. Wine list was reasonable. A much better selection of wine than the lobby bar restaurant. I really liked the Unshackled brut sparking wine by the glass. Great offering to have. My starter (scallops) and main course (salmon) were better than average. I'd consider returning for dinner, but breakfast isn't worth it, unless it's "free" because of Hyatt status, your rate package, or because work is paying.More

Went here for a business lunch, and thankfully we didn't have an activity immediately afterwards. The service was very slow. We ordered drinks and I think the restaurant lost out on a second round because it took so long for our first round to arrive....The food served was quite tasty, though, so the meal ended up being OK since we were not in a rush.More

My wife & I decided to sample the Downtown Greenville "fine dining scene" while we were visiting for two days, so we settled on a dinner at Roost based on web info & customer reviews & what was open on a Sunday night. The exterior...& interior spaces are each unique & attractive, our indoor table seating was comfortable with separation from other diners, and the dining atmosphere was sedate as we like it. We started with a Roasted Beet Shareable dish, which was ... interesting (see our associated photo). Getting past the initial visual impressions, it was actually quite tasty. Our entrees - Rigatoni Bolognese for my wife, the Corvina with Mediterranean couscous and citrus butter sauce - were both very well prepared & flavorful in large portions. Our waiter was initially cordial & professional, but his long disappearance after our orders were placed (another staff member delivered our food) was the main reason for my Four Bubbles rating. We would nonetheless recommend Roost for your own special occasion meal, and we would likely return if we revisited the area.More

We visited Greenville for several days and ate three meals at The Roost (lunch & dinner). We thought the food was excellent not just for a hotel restaurant, but for a restaurant itself. The lunch menu is more varied. There is a very nice outdoor...seating area, which is adjacent to one of the main squares in Greenville, and the inside is nice as well. Among the items we ate were pulled pork sandwich, the pork chop, the fried rice, and the wedge salad. The latter is not the typical wedge (with a chunk of iceberg) but rather the iceberg is cut up. Nonetheless, it is a delicious salad with other ingredients in it. We also thought the prices were reasonable.More
