Red Rooster Harlem
Book your next event with us
This was by far one of the best culinary and dining experiences I've had in a very long time. Gospel brunch was amazing, the service was outstanding, and the location/decor was a tribute to Harlem. Chef has a gift for taking soulful classics and transforming them to different than mom's but just as good! The food is made from love, heart, and soul. You can tell. Chef, please consider Bishop Arts/Oakcliff or Uptown Dallas.
Too noisy! For my taste. !
Superior food and service as always. While the kitchen ended up unable to offer one ordered dish, the server immediately comped the replacement meal and treated the table to the restaurant’s delicious biscuits. The only drawback to the evening was the warm temperature and the noise level which made conversing with anyone except the person next to you impossible.
We visit Red Rooster annually during our NY Summer vacation. We love the chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, fried chicken, deviled eggs, jerk chicken, the whole menu!
A great place for a celebration. Noise level is significant, which is why I would recommend Red Rooster for a boisterous celebration - not sure it would work for a first date. Food was deeelish! Super nice server, very responsive bartenders. Love Red Rooster.
My Birthday celebration.
Well trained staff, very polite. Food was excellent- especially the dessert!
Amazing place!!! American food very good. Perfect for a special typical dinner!!!
What a pleasure to dine with friends and my husband surrounded by cool jazz and friendly faces. Everyone enjoyed their food and we had a lovely time. Thank you.
Always an amazing culinary, cultural and musical experience
Have not been in years. Food has improved and service was excellent as always.
Food was great!
Service was excellent
Had a great time, would definitely go again!
Great food and great service. Loved the restaurant in every way!
We went for the gospelbrunch, it was really outstanding! Next time in New York, we will go back for sure!
I LOVED Tamysha (sp?), our food choices (thanks to Tamysha!) and the energy!
i had been wanting to visit the Red Rooster for a few years after buying the cook book of same name. I was very excited to invite family to share a special celebratory event. The ambiance was fab, the people quite diverse, the noise (for me) way too loud, the food "amazing", the staff "excellent." My only complaint was the cost of the affair $400 for the 4 of us. I'm not a stingy person, but $15 for a smallish cocktail was a bit - yikes. Would I return - YES with the knowledge that it's gonna be a bit out of my budget. Go forth, enjoy to the max, return often, try everything - it's all "YES, Chef!"
Ordered the shrimp and grits. The flavor was great but the portion size for the price wasn't ideal.
We were so excited to eat at Red Rooster based on a friends recommendation. Our server was quite knowledgeable regarding our bar and menu selection. We were a party of six. Four of us received our entrees at the same time. When the four meals were, there wasn’t any statement regarding the status of the other two entrees. We sat waiting for the other meals so we could all eat together. We continued to wait. When an inquiry was made regarding the fact our table was missing two dinners our servers response was “yea, I know”........ the four people started to eat when she could not provide an estimated delivery time. Her response and lack of an apology really soured what could have been a wonderful evening.
Wonderful experience and I look forward to a future visit.
Fire fire fire!! I always love this place
I’m from Canada and this is my second visit to Red Rooster! I made sure I had a reservation so we didn’t miss out!
Have wanted to go for years and wasn’t disappointed. Our waitress was so good and everyone friendly, welcoming and kind. Food was very good and we had exceptional service.
Love this place! Been here a few times and never disappoints.
First trip to NYC and I love Chef Marcus! Lunch at Red Rooster did not disappoint! Fabulous food and amazing service, what could be better?!?! This will definitely be a permanent stop on all future NYC trips!!
Excellent Experience. Waited a long time before coming. Worth the wait. Great vibe. Amazing food. Superb service.
I will be coming back for Marcus’s Obama ribs.
Very creative Southern cuisine. Lively bar and restaurant. An extremely enjoyable evening.
I ordered the fried chicken which wasn’t friend more like roasted chicken and the flavor was underwhelming . Also seemed a little undercooked towards the bone. A friend ordered shrimp and grits and love it though. Definitely had food envy.
Ordered jerk chicken in part b/c of the “sides”, but they weren’t really sides. Chicken was served on a scallion pancake (gets a little wet from the chicken and is hard to cut), but veggies were a couple of strips of peppers as far as I could tell and the “tostones” were actually the long plantain chips you get at the store (maybe one strip broken in two pieces on top). Also, the least spicy jerk I’ve ever had. Good, just wasn’t as expected. Drinks were fabulous!
Excellent service and great food!
This was our second visit to Red Rooster, and it was just as excellent as the first time. We had a variety of dishes - salads, burgers, chicken - and all were delicious. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. Server had great personality. We will definitely return on our next visit to NYC.
This is a tourist trap. The food was almost inedible. I had fried chicken that was over cooked and over sweetened with honey. The chicken breast was so tough that it could have been used as a hockey puck. The cornbread was dry and accompanied by some tasteless buttery like mixture. The noise level uncomfortable.
Clearly a place where tourist come to say that they have seen the “real” Harlem.
Always something going on. Great staff. Fun vibe. Food hits the spot.
Been here before, better service and better food this time. Really appreciate the music. But the sound level in the restaurant area is by far to loud.
This is honestly one of the best restaurants I've been to in the city. The food has exciting twists on southern classics. The staff was very nice and the ambience is really fun. Don't skip this place!
Everything was perfectly seasoned. I was really looking forward to eating here so I am so happy that it was as enjoyable as anticipated. The Mac and greens was SO delicious. Wanted a wee bit more greens but still lovely nonetheless. We were late because of our train from uptown and the hostess was very accomodating. Thank you so much.
The food was flavorful and didn’t disappoint.
Can’t wait to return.
Friends from out of town. Thanks for placing us at a nice table, per our request!
I have been to Red Rooster on several occasions and had a wonderful experience with the food and service. However, the current menu was not very pleasing to the palate. The food was average and our waiter for the night was not very attentive. Three out of 6 dishes orders were incorrect. I ordered the Juneteenth Whiting, which was missing the chips that come with it when the dish arrived to the table. After checking in with the waiter, he informed me that they had run out of chips. He did not tell me this when I ordered, nor did he inform me of this until I inquired. I also ordered a drink that never came. I did not inquirer again about the drink due to all the other mishaps that took place that evening. My sisters ordered the Uptown Scallops and the Lenox Burger with no bacon and both dishes came out with bacon and had to be remade. Overall, the food and service at Red Rooster were subpar taking into consideration Red Rooster reputation and the cost of its dishes.
We started at the bar before our reservation and the bar staff was not organized. They were switching bartenders that had us waiting a while for service and when we were served did not really provide an attentive type service. Luckily when we were seated for our reservation our waitress was outstanding and very attemptive.
Great food and excellent service!!
