Wonderful service and great atmosphere! The food was fantastic and had some great twists to traditional Thanksgiving meal staples. We are visiting from out of town and booked online based on reviews and so happy we did!

Two of enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal at Red Rooster. The prices are a little high ($9 for cornbread and $12 for mac n cheese) However, we wanted to try many items on the menu, so we splurged. The brisket was outstanding: smokey and tender! Our server, Steven, was excellent. We would return again to try some of the items on their regular menu.

So happy that Harlems Red Rooster is in Miami. So many wonderful surprises. The Art collection is incredible.
The food very tasty. Our waiter was annoying and lacked professionalism. As we were leaving, we discovered the lounge upstairs that had a fabulous reggae vibe Sunday night. Will definitely be back.

We had the catch of the day, the corn bread, a crudo, and fried green tomatoes as well as a key lime dessert. They were all so tasty and our two servers were awesome.

Perhaps they were spices and not salt but I thought everything was just way overly salted and for me that’s a clear indication that what I’m eating is of poor quality and it’s been covered up by the salt. Never order a martini a dry martini in this place they haven’t a clue how to make one. I asked for a bone dry martini with a twist and what they did was to squeeze some lemon into the drink after it was prepared totally altering the taste it was awful it was by far the worst martini I’ve ever had ever. The wait staff was delightful but one can’t eat the white stuff so this Will never return back to the one in Florida and certainly not the weather New York

So often the drive South can be energy sapping. This time express lanes all the way was the answer. Arrived early for 2:30PM Sunday Brunch to be seated without fuss. Staff was professional and personable. The band was playing and both singers were good. We sat on the patio, our Rum Punch and Marqueta arrived at our table as we settled in. This patio is quite comfortable while being in earshot of the band that's just behind the bar. There is also a circular couch, which I am sure at night makes this patio even more romantic. Our food was served soon after prep, no long waiting on "the pass". For two: French toast and a side of chicken, plus chicken and waffles and a caesar salad. Note*, Marcus' Cornbread will have you asking for more. On the way out, don't be curious about the creamery, free samples will have you HOOKED.
All in all, a ten plus.
Can't wait to return.

This is one unique unpretentious restaurant! The vibe is great even though some may find the DJ music in the bar a bit loud. Simple starter dishes like deviled eggs and chicken-fried green tomatoes were very good. The octopus and yellowtail tuna dishes were outstanding. We were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thumbs up for this one. Will definitely return.

Super cute date night spot. We went on a Monday night and they had live music. It’s a different feel from the NYC location, but it definitely fits the south Florida vibe.

Beautiful location and great set up. Noise level and the slow service detracted from what was a tasty meal. However found it a little over priced based on ROI.

Well they had a live band and it was very loud. Couldn’t hear my friends and my food was very salty (biscuit and gravy). So I changed it for the Mac n cheese with nuggets. Too much black pepper and the nuggets were ok.

2nd time dining and it was a an awesome experience. First time - had shrimp and grits. It was savory, filling and overall amazing! 2nd time - had the pasta with conch - so amazing! Slightly spicy like the shrimp and grits - very flavorful. It was perfect! My bf had the fermented rice with cod and crab - very good, however, wasn’t expecting the rice texture to mimic bottom of pot rice. My bf loves rice and we had to send back to the kitchen- but was flavorful just kinda hard. So if you don’t mind that - please order. He also order the fish of the day and it had a sweet topping which wast great. But simply took that off and just ate the fish. Overall amazing experience as always! Will be returning and can’t wait to try the other items on menu! Great service and staff is super friendly and welcoming!
