Rooster's Wood Fired Kitchen Uptown Charlotte
Beef Short Rib
artichokes, tomatoes, spinach
Everyone was friendly and the food was great.
The one glitch was they showed us to a booth that could not accommodate one of our large guests. It was embarrassing that the hostess did not notice that there was no way the other couple could fit in once the table was shifted to the other side. They did accommodate us at a four top after discussion. But it was embarrassing to our guests.
Loved our dining experience tonight! Manager is awesome- comes around to tables - even in the bar- to check on patrons. Taylor the hostess is very accommodating , pleasant & efficient!
Great food, friendly staff
We enjoyed cocktails and appetizers before we went to the Jazz Room
The food, service, and ambiance was wonderful! We had show tickets so our server was very attentive to our needs and time.
Service was impeccable. Hostess sat us in the open dining area outside the restaurant at my request. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, made suggestions and was quite personable. Food was, as always, delicious. Of course I ordered my favorite, the fried oysters. They never disappoint!
Great night with friends...wonderful vegetable choices!
I LOVE this restaurant. I come from Raleigh to eat here. You will not be disappointed. It’s simple food done pretty simple but there is a twist. I make fried corn but it’s not like theirs. I make Brussels sprouts with bacon that are good but theirs is divine. Don’t get me started on their Mac and cheese. It’s simple but there is wood fired magic in this food. Just go. And DO NOT miss the pickled local vegetable relish plate. Eat it while you peruse the menu. You’ll be back I guarantee.
Service was great, I was disappointed they didn't have some of the appetizer options they've had in the past. Overall good food the side options are generous portions so great to share. Our waiter was very attentive as was the rest of the staff. We will be back soon.
Always amazing. Short rib is incredible. Stellar customer service
Glad that Roosters is back in full motion. If you've not been, GO
2nd time here and just as fabulous as the 1st. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed and the music playlist was fantastic!!
Fantastic service and delicious food...can't wait to return!
Amazing food and amazing service. Or waiter Nate and Mike the manager went above and beyond. I was dining with my fiancé on a busy evening with lots of large parties. Usually two people at a small table get less attention but we were treated so well by the staff. The food is out of this world, our favorite meal so far in uptown!
So good to see this favorite back in Uptown. The perfect evening when paired with an event at the Blumenthal. Excellent service and cuisine under the watchful eyes of hands on management who pretty well drop by each table. Our Hunter this trip was a man named Hunter who went to great lengths to extend every possible courtesy. Hats off!
Service was very good. Food was good but was really expecting more. It was worth a try, but not sure if I would again.
We had a party of 6 for an early dinner before a football game at Bank of America stadium. Our service and food were amazing! Their Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Chicken Pizza, and Pepperoni Shrimp Goat Cheese pizza were so good and portions were more than ample! Definitely recommend! They genuinely treated us like a valued customer!
UGA Clemson game. Excellent
We sat at the chefs table so we could watch them preparing food. It was great.
I was staying over in Charlotte after visiting the Van Gogh exhibit. I selected Rooster's Wood Fired Kitchen based on location and some online ratings. I was not disappointed! My boneless short rib was so tender it fell apart. My friend had the flank steak and it was perfect. We shared macaroni and cheese and a special succotash for sides. A bottle of OPP Pinot Noir paired perfectly with our meal. Our server Nate was professional and personable. On future stays in Charlotte, I will plan to return. Fantastic meal!
The food here was amazing! I loved the Brussels sprouts and Mac n cheese. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and easy to talk to. The restaurant seemed full but all the food came in a timely manner. One of the managers stopped by the table and chatted with us for a while. He was very pleasant to talk to and was sincere in asking how our dining experience was. At the end of the dinner the server offered dessert on him, which was a very nice unexpected touch. Overall a great restaurant and experience!
The short rib was pretty salty and the scallops were a bit undercooked.
This was my first visit and I had a fantastic dining experience. I have already recommended Roosters to several friends and will be returning to try their other menu items soon.
Absolutely would recommend Rooster's Uptown! All the staff treated us like special guests into their home. The manager and others went out of their way to make sure we were seated together (a party of 8). We originally had two tables but the manager and staff were able to figure out a way to make it happen so all of us could be at the same table with plenty of room to spare! And the food - very generous and delicious portions. Sharing was the word of the evening.
The food, service, and aesthetic was unmatched. I’d recommend this to anyone. Prices weren’t too bad either. Totally totally totally recommend!
Wonderful atmosphere, superb service, delightful food preparation.. what more could one ask for?
We were SO GLAD to be back at our favorite Charlotte restaurant. First closed due to a fire, and then COVID, Rooster's Uptown is reopened and you'll find your favorite staff and menu items are still there and still great. Our go-to order is the flank steak with each of us ordering a different side to share--au gratin potatoes, beets and last night the brussels sprouts (all sides are enough for 3 people). Can't wait for another event in Charlotte that provides us the opportunity to once again dine at Rooster's Uptown!
There food took almost an hour to come out.
Very good food, great service, food came out very quickly.
Service was excellent and attentive. Food was very good but I felt my fried chicken was a bit too dry. Everything else was very flavorful and fresh. Great atmosphere.
Excellent food and service
We ordered the hanger steak and short ribs. The flavors were wondeful. Our server Nathaniel was very helpful and attentive. Fabulous dining experience.
Fried chicken and catfish and all sides were excellent
Great food and service
Great table and it was ready when we arrived. Service was fine and prompt. It is a loud room and those of us at one end of the table could not hear the others. In their defense, we were a party of nine and it was a long table.
The food was good but not great. I had one of the pizzas which I had to cut with my knife because it was not cut through when delivered. The knife was full enough that this was not easy. Fried okra was great. Zucchini was too soft.
The main courses seemed expensive given you had to buy the side dishes too.
Overall it was good, just not great. Most of my friends had not been there before and they thought it was a good restaurant and we all enjoyed ourselves.
If you had rating higher than Outstanding I would have chosen that one.
Server, food, table all perfect.
Server gave us an unrushed experience but still magically got out ready to go in time for Charlotte Squawks.
The only place to go pre-theatre/concert in uptown Charlotte.
Or, really anytime.
Disappointed in the succotash and the sale portion of the scallops but loved the coconut cake and lemonade, great seating great service. I miss the Fried catfish, hope you can bring it back soon. My guest loved the shrimp and grits, I will be back to try other entrées
Great Food and Location with excellent ambience.
Service was Top Notch and Nate, our waiter deserves a Big Shoutout as he is one of the best I haves seen in recent years. He deserves extra recognition.
The food is excellent. I had the Kale Caesar Salad and the Salmon and both were delicious!
