My biggest critique is that I feel the menu needs more explanation. The Creamery, the "meat" appetizers (it started with an "L") needed to be explained. I explained to our server that we had never been there but still felt lost when looking at the menu. It would have made our experience much more carefree.

We are so grateful to have found Rooster. The ambiance is lovely. We started with wine and olives. Then progressed to wonderful salads, the kale Caesar was great. Enjoyed the mushroom pizza, but the highlight of our meal was the French fries. Amazing! I would co. Back just for the fries, and the sticky toffee pudding-delightful 💗

We were in Charlotte for a college football game and wanted something special. Rooster’s gave us fabulous food, fun, and energy that went right with our weekend away activities. Everyone can find a menu item that will be their new favorite and gain a gem of a place to return to time and time again. My new favorite appetizer is the duck and my favorite entree is their scallops, a winner for any tastebud.

The food was excellent and had seasonal and year round choices that were very tasty. We had the charcuterie board, mussels and brisket burger and all were cooked perfectly and delicious. However our waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu and also treated us rather poorly (I guess b cause we weren’t in formal wear?).
I would recommend this restaurant for the food but not for the service.

We enjoyed our meal BUT they did not have salmon for my wife's order. She had to substitute the steak (good but a lot of butter). Something must have happened to the "fish man" as our waitress made a comment that maybe he had not arrived (this was after 6 PM on a Thursday). My order was flounder and it was good but a VERY small portion on the plate.

Service was top notch. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and patient with us as we asked 100 questions. The mussels are not to be missed. The chicken is delicious, and those potatoes au gratin are nothing short of blessed. Will try the scallops next time. Delicious!

Great Lunch meeting at Roosters Downtown Charlotte……… the BBQ Meatloaf and Tomato Bisque were excellent and perfect for a chilly day. My friends also enjoyed their meals as “the clean plate club” was evident. Good atmosphere, Fun and attentive wait staff and a very enjoyable lunch.

I've always gotten takeout from Rooster's, and have never sat down until this time. We went for a coworker's birthday and had a strict timeline for our birthday hour lunch. The ambiance is rustic and eclectic.
The server was very nice and knowledgeable. We had an appetizer and all ordered separate entrees. The onion rings were delicious and delivered fast.
I ordered a quarter chicken and the tomato bisque. It was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The only downfall was there was six of us and we had to wait 20 minutes for separate checks. We did warn her beforehand. However, I chalk it off as a 1pm crazy time and she was confused but doing the best she could.

I will definitely come back!

Was looking for a new restaurant in Uptown Charlotte and came across Roosters as a pre-theater option. What a find! Our server was amazing as he steered us through this first-time experience. My teenage daughters loved their choices (both pasta dishes) and my wife and I, after devouring a charcuterie plate, enjoyed ours as well. You can tell that the chef is employing farm-to-table cuisine and the use of delicious local ingredients confirms that. It's a vibrant scene with a great cocktail and wine list; one you don't want to miss!

Rooster’s is a unique wood-fired kitchen with a varied daily menu. Specials range from duck to grouper and more, but their BBQ chicken is always wonderful. There is the tasty wood-fired pizza for those who want a simpler fare. My favorites are on the extensive vegetable list- roasted beets, butter beans, and tons more. Large portions are great for sharing.

We went to Roosters before the Symphony at Blumenthal. We always love Roosters. Their food is consistently great quality and the convenience of being able to walk across the crosswalk to the Belk Theater is ideal. Service was good but wish server had poured a taste of wine for my mom before pouring the whole glass. Food is somewhat overpriced for servings in my opinion but it's so delicious that we don't regret it! A wonderful meal at a family favorite restaurant.
