Service at Rooster's was excellent, from the hostess to waiter. I was shocked to see how busy it was at 1p on Thurs afternoon, but it was good to see so many people out.

We were so happy to have them back. Don't go on a Saturday night unless you make a reservation. I had the salmon. One other person had the shrimp, and the others had the short ribs. All of it was outstanding. We also had the butter beans and the potatoes which were as good as ever. We will be back.

Had a great lunch at roosters. The flank steak was well cooked and had a good sauce and onion rings were fresh with just the right amount of breading.

Rooster’s was a last ditch effort to appease very different meal preferences for the night. We considered it a mediocre option for both of us (hence— the beauty of compromise)… HOWEVER, this awesome hidden gem far exceeded any preconceived notions we had! There are no words to describe the unbelievable flavoring of the flank stank and the GENIUS creation of their stuffed peppers. We were so blown away, even our vocabulary escaped us. All we could repeat over and over was “This is SO. GOOD.” There aren’t a lot of restaurants that we can’t wait until we go again (just trying to keep some variety in our dinner dates), but we were already planning the next dates we would be in the area and could enjoy Rooster’s again. The environment was not too casual, but also not fine dining. Definitely worthy of a cute dress, but not formal wear. It had a positive ambience. Every employee seemed genuinely happy and content to be there. Our amazing server, RJ, was attentive but never overbearing. He offered some great input and recommendations and was a fantastic conversationalist without lingering too long. The open kitchen actually felt even more confidence-building of their cleanliness (particularly during a worldwide pandemic). I rarely write reviews. I’ll hand out stars, but life is already so intense, I don’t add to that by stressing over writing restaurant reviews. Rooster’s was THAT FANTASTIC. Back to the food— just unbelievable. Their chef clearly has a gift for perfecting flavor combinations that blow the mind. Because it was so delicious, we even ventured into dessert because, well… you know they have to be delicious too, given a meal like that! Coconut cake and — wait for it— rhubarb pie. It was a total risk trying that pie and going into it blind about any preconceived guess of what it may taste like— it was excellent. Sweet with a hint of lemon. So, do it. Just go. You will not be sorry. And then you’ll be scrolling calendars trying to plan your next date there too!

Very impressed with this place. Was just visiting the city for a date night and this was exactly what we were looking for. Chicken and steak is amazing along with the Mac and cheese! Highly recommend

The overall experience was a pleasant one. My husband & I were there for our anniversary. The pepperoni pizza was delicious, so was the calamari & the potato augratin. The chicken was not very good. We’d a good dinner & service was great. Will go back.

Food was amazing as remembered-thank you for keeping the Noble’s tomato basil soup on the menu all these years! So good! The only reason for the 4 on ambiance was that we were seated at the last booth upstairs in the back near the service area so it was a little hectic. Otherwise an overall fantastic experience.

The hostess was rather friendly, and our server was very attentive. I had the grilled salmon ( a little disappointed that it did not come with anything such as spinach). My other guests had the BBQ chicken, pizza, flounder fish and they all enjoyed their meal. Overall all meals were well cooked. I will be back.

It was nice to see this location open back up. We enjoyed our meal and the entire staff was super welcoming. The best item that we ordered was the burrata. I wasn't thrilled with the Janasse Cotes du Rhone because it tasted like it was a few days old. I didn't say anything though so that's on me. As they get their crowds back the wine won't sit around long so the issue will be solved.

This was our first time eating at Rooster's and it was for a birthday occasion. We will be going back for seconds! The atmosphere, service and food was great, and the prices weren't outrageous. The manager also brought us a complimentary piece of birthday cake (we got to pick and the coconut was especially delicious!) and made us feel quite special. We also enjoyed seeing the chefs prepare the food at an open kitchen area w/ a wood fired oven - very nice. The only negative might be parking for the restaurant, but we are also not accustomed to being in uptown Charlotte!

We had a nice dinner and experience. Our server was attentive. I was a little surprised about my dessert, and would have benefitted from a description of it on the desert menu. I ordered the Buttermilk and Rhubarb pie. I was hoping for more of a rhubarb tart - with a delicious pie crust. Instead it was a custard pie with a layer of rhubarb puree? on top. I was disappointed, just because I was not expecting what came to the table. Otherwise the food was very good.

Great food but hangar steak was a little smaller than expected. Also plan to drink before you arrive because alcohol is massively overpriced. Wine is more affordable by the bottle.

Welcome back, Rooster's! Our evening was so great...food, service and mood were all just what our celebration needed...Landis and the team who took care of us were just right.
Our out of town guests loved the food and our birthday friend from here thought it could not have been better.
And to everyone...don't forget to save room for dessert!
Thank you.
