    Great food, energy, people, ambiance and vibe.....super chill, not uptight. Multi-cultural, but grounded in it's African and Southern roots, culture and attitude. People help make place. Come hungry and open to a rich experience....and then go back often! Special mention for the Uncle Norris premium Whiskey! Cheers!

    The Fried Chicken, Octopus and Macaroni and Cheese were very dry and lacked flavor. The fried green tomatoes were mediocre and the only good item we tried was the cornbread. In addition, the music is too loud to carry on a conversation. I will not return.

    The food was not good at all. The server was great! But the fried chicken was salty, over cooked, and dry. The Mac and cheese and yams were dry and tasteless. The collards were greasy and way too much vinegar. The cornbread was the best part, but not the jalapeño butter. I don’t know if we just went on a bad night, but won’t be returning.

    Never been a fan of automatically including the tip in my transaction let alone 20%. As well as not having free refills on Pepsi products. Food was decent. But I like the aesthetics

    Everything was delicious and the staff are very friendly! However, we were seated outside and it was a bit too hot since there weren’t enough fans to cool the patio. Otherwise, I highly recommend everything on the menu and the place is beautiful.

    Spence, our server, was the best! I’ve been to the Red Rooster in New York and own Marcus Samuelsson’s original cookbook. I’m a huge fan of his cooking. His Overtown restaurant is special. It’s in a historic building that has been restored with attention to detail. Now to the food. We had brunch. The deviled eggs and the cornbread are extraordinary. The avocado toast was innovative with a mahi mahi fish spread under the avocado. The two ingredients worked perfectly. We booked for brunch with friends already and this time after noon to experience the sounds of their chanteuse that arrive at noon. We intend to enjoy lunch and have the fried green tomato sandwich and dine there for the fried chicken and green tomatoes I’ve had in New York.

    Restaurant ambiance was nice but food was disappointing. The lounge upstairs was WAYY overcrowded, loud and drinks were $20 each which was highway robbery especially for the type of lounge it is. Will never go to either again

    Food and overall ambience were fantastic! Desiree made our celebration awesome. Congratulations to the total operation. The food flavors were so very well balanced. We look to returning and trying some of the other menu items that we eyed while passing our table. And the red rooster in the parking lot - great touch!!!!

    Couldn't wait to the try chicken & waffles, not a fan. Waitress was horrible, didn't even get addressed for 15 minutes after sitting. Place wasn't even packed bar empty and maybe 10 tables filled if that. We seen the waitress at menu, water and checkout and it took her forever to do those, water 10 minutes more after the 15. Ridiculous. Been waiting for this since the lock down drove all the way from West Hollywood and experience sucked!

    We had a great experience at red rooster for the Miami spice special. Portions were bigger than expected which was excellent. Received a three course meal for $28. The cornbread and crispy bird sandwich were our favorites and highly recommended. The servers were very attentive and checked on us often to make sure everything was fine.

    Upon walking to the location I really liked the decor. I also appreciated the security guard in the parking lot watching over the vehicles. The food was great, I had the snapper filet my wife had the ribs. Cornbread was amazing and would definitely recommend! Service was subpar however. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine. It never showed up… their loss. We also ordered the deviled eggs with caviar and it came without the caviar. The server insisted that I didn’t order the caviar. I asked if I could get it on the side and was informed that I couldn’t… only if I ordered another plate… bummer. After a cocktail which was good we decided to not get in a back and forth about the caviar or the bottle. The server would return asking us if we wanted anything to which we replied “just the check” she tried to push for dessert, we declined. Approximately ten minutes later the server returned asking if we needed anything… we restated that we asked for the check… there was seriously something wrong with this server. She couldn’t even make small talk, was completely disoriented. Then the check arrived & ta da! There’s caviar rung up on the ticket…. She could’ve checked the ticket and seen that the kitchen clearly made the mistake rather than blame it on me. So after getting that removed we paid and left.

    I don't leave reviews. I've dined at many restaurants, from 5 stars to regular. I can truly say this is a must. I've been dining out lately and a lot of these restaurants are only popular aesthetic wise. Red Rooster food is well seasoned, it's not overwhelming, it tastes just right. The customer service was INCREDIBLE. Like I said, I don't leave reviews because I'm so use to being disappointed by these restaurants claiming to be all that, but this experience was wonderful to say the least.

    The fried green tomatoes were good, cornbread was average but the butter was nice. Conch fritters we nothing special. The fried chicken was less than average and the ribs were over cooked and tasteless. The octopus was good and the snapper was off the chart. Macaroni and cheese was bland, sweet potatoes were good. Love the ambience. Very disappointed there were no chicken wings. Drinks were good and so was the service. Love the vibe but overall disappointing.
