    All of the food we ordered was well prepared with excellent flavors. We found it difficult to put togeather the meal from the ala carte menu. Many items on the menu were simple but verry well prepared. Frequent visitors would get used to the menu and have no problem.

    My husband and I took our two kids (8 and 11) to Rooster's to celebrate my birthday. The kids were pleased with their meals (cheese pizza and chicken strips) as much as we did ours (scallops and hangar steak). Our waiter was fantastic, and we even got a celebratory piece of cheesecake/brownie as a birthday gift from the restaurant. The scallops were great and the roasted beets just melted in my mouth.

    The service was wonderful, the people were respectful, and they made sure we had everything that we needed. They did not attempt to force a type of food or drink on us, but they were honest about what was really good to try. They even gave me and my wife a free dessert for our anniversary as well. This place will be a place that my wife and I will return back to in the very near future.

    have never been a big fan of Roosters, though my spouse is. went there for a special occasion and enjoyed my visit. my main objection in the past has been very small portions at very high prices. either they've increased the portion sizes to moderate in size or my appetite has decreased. in any event the food was very good. the mussels were very tasty and tender but i would recommend they decrease the amount of salt. i also had chicken liver mousse, which was a bit disappointing. kind of bland. K had trout and that was also very good. we split some frites, the portion was very large and they tasted great. we were treated to a piece of coconut cake, which was very moist and tasty. the service was very attentive.

    For me the highlight was the large variety of vegetables, beautifully prepared - not cooked to death. The entree options were terrific, for sure, but the veggies really set Rooster's apart from other restaurants. Also, my wife ordered a Cab/Merlot blend that she said was one of the best glasses she has ever had. We'll be back often.

    My husband and I are never disappointed when we dine at Roosters. It is one of our favorite places to eat. The staff is always fantastic and the food is always fabulous. I had the speckled trout and the beet salad..OMGosh!! YUM! My husband had his oysters. He normally gets the mussels but this time he ventured out and they were WONDERFUL! This place is always a hit with us!

    The stuffed roosters on the wall were a little creepy, so we quickly ordered the mushroom pizza appetizer to share - excellent - took my focus off the roosters. The burger was delicious, my new fave in Charlotte. But the roasted chicken fell flat - just very bland. For all the chickens they have roasting, thought it should be their feature, but would never order it again. I like this place though...will give them another chance.

    Great ambiance. I went there for lunch with a special friend visiting from out of town. Wanted a menu that had something for everyone, so that conversation was the focus. On-line reservation system was great. Server was attentive, but when we hadn't glanced at the menu for 20 minutes, server took the cue, and let us have a leisurely lunch. Roosters was perfect!! Thanks.

    All of our dishes were tender, flavorful, cooked perfectly and very enjoyable. The presentation was very nice and artful, but unlike many other places that have artistic presentation, these portions were filling. Some of the sides might be considered basic, but they were well executed, not excessively rich and complimented the main dishes well. The beets side dish was marvelous.

    Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants. On this, our second visit, we unfortunately booked the same evening as a very large and slightly noisy group party of some sort. Restaurants need to be able to accomodate groups, but the single large room layout of Roosters means that all of the customers share the same ambience. The food is magnificent and the service is attentive. Highly recommended.

    I normally do not write bad reviews but... I went to dinner Friday night with 2 friends and our waiter was horrible. He acted like he didn't care. Messed up drinks twice, dropped off wrong check , forgot to take off tacos we sent back. Just bad attitude. Food was just not up to usual standards. Used to love coming here and always thought food and service was consistent but I'm pretty much done.

    We have been here several times & thoroughly enjoy the bistro-style atmosphere, terrific food, friendly & timely service and a wine list that is one of Charlotte's best for great value-perfectly matched to the roasted menu offerings. Lots of small plate items offered here so you can put your own meal together. Much of the food is locally grown with many of the meats fire/oven roasted. The charcuterie meats are made on-premise. The full bar has a list of specialty drinks, several locally brewed beers on the list, and an extensive wine list . Hilights at our table included Seared Sea Scallops, Pork Shoulder BBQ, Boneless Beef Short Ribs, roasted Potato Gnocci (very yummy), and a House Cured Duck .
