I rarely go out to eat and eat everything I ordered, but I did because it was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was amazing and the free parking was a great add on.

I was a little disappointed in the quality/taste of the food. I’ve been to Roosters several times (but not since Covid) and always had a great meal. this time - not so much.

We were able to have dinner and drinks before a performance at the Blumenthal Performing Arts. The service and entire staff was excellent. We would definitely go back when uptown.

Service was outstanding and food was awesome. Always the best grilled salmon in town and we always order the fries no matter what else we are having. They are best in town. So many good things on the menu, it's always hard to decide what to order. My husband loves the BBQ chicken. Fried oysters are always great as well. Our favorite uptown restaurant.

We had been to this location once before (right when they opened back up after COVID) and I wasn’t personally super impressed but this second time…wow!!! The food was amazing, flavorful and there was an interesting selection. There was a lot to pick from and everything was impeccable.

EXCELLENT food - everything was spot on amazing! I could taste the freshness in each dish. The kalettes were perfection! I love how the menu changes everyday. The fish stew I got was so special — haven’t had anything like that in all the time I’ve lived in Charlotte. My friends all thought their entrees were fantastic too.
Our server Landis was also incredibly friendly, attentive, and thoughtful. He asked for our parking ticket to validate it when I didn’t even think to ask. Landis is an all star server! I am DEFINITELY coming back!!

Great ambiance, service and food. The special vegetables of the day were amazing - fried sprouted broccoli and broiled cauliflower with fondue. The staples on the menu are also very good.

Everything we ordered was delicious.. We started with the calamari which was lightly breaded but crispy, tender and cooked to perfection.. I had the half chicken natural which was very moist and tasty.. My husband had the short ribs which were good but did taste like they were made a day ago..Our portions were decent and all our food was priced accordingly.. This is usually not the case I’ve found with many uptown restaurants.. excellent and will definitely return..

The value you get for the food doesn't match. My salmon looked like Tapas food even though this isn't a Tapas place. They overcooked the Salmon (burnt) even though I order it medium. Smoked wings are no longer on the menu (which was the best thing on the menu prior to the wing shortage). Not a good experience.

We had lunch at Rooster's for our holiday business lunch. I wanted something more upscale but not ridiculously priced. Rooster's was perfect! Their menu had something for everyone--from sandwiches and pizza to scallops and steak. Everything was delicious! We ooh'd and ahhh'd with every bite. We loved sharing our sides! Our crowd favorite was the onion rings! I highly recommend, and can't wait to go back.

Overall a good experience. Would be nice to see a vegetarian main option on the menu. Perhaps a grain + greens/mushrooms. Just something that's a main dish without meat.

The restaurant is good, nothing to rave about. Service was alright but again nothing to talk about. The server was alright, but not great (my apologies but what is the point of leaving a review if its not honest). The manager who came to check on our table was REALLY GOOD. He seemed to really care about it. That was the highlight of our dinner. Would I go back? Probably not, but it was alright.
