The meal itself was yummy. However, we had terrible service. We were there for over 90 minutes before our starters arrived. I never got the salad I ordered. It was also very loud!! So loud that one member of our party was outside to escape the cacophony.

Cool place, great music and singers. The thing I like most was that the artist walking around singing in the bar, dancing with all ..

Super leckeres Essen. Best Chicken Wings ever. Guter Wein und zum Nachtisch ein cooles Konzert in der Bar im Keller (Ginny‘s Supper Club). Alles perfekt. Wir waren auch zum Teil sehr teuer und edel in NY Essen aber Red Rooster ist unser Favorit! Absolut empfehlenswert!!!!

The Rooster Slam was not much different from what one might have gotten from an I-HOP. Uncomfortable seating. Did not match the hype.

Restaurant has a very nice ambiance and good music. But for us, we thought it was pretty expensive for what it was. Meaning the food was very good but for the preparation and thge quantity... a bit too expensive even for new york. For the rest, staff and music were really great.

Service and food good. Maybe a tad pricey but not outrageous. Too noisy inside for conversation so luckily nice day and could enjoy their sidewalk patio. But hey folks need to hear themselves think.

Hands down one of the best meals of our entire lives. It’s not just the AMAZING fried chicken, greens, Mac n cheese, pickles and gingerbread waffles, but the PEOPLE, the ART, and the community. This is a gem and I hope it’s spirit spreads like wildfire throughout our country. ❤️

This is my second visit to Red Rooster. My first experience wasn’t anything special.
However I know this place is known for for some great dishes so I wanted to try again. Well this time didn’t it disappoint!!
The food was amazing, I had the Obama braised short ribs.. deviled eggs, cornbread. It was delicious. No complaints. For drinks I had a Cadillac margarita (or three).. was made perfectly.
I plan to return again because there’s still some items I still need to try.
My only negative comment would be the red bench seats need revamping, they have dents in them which make it nearly impossible for a shorter person to sit it them. also the cornbread should come out to the table warmer.

the menu made no mention of pasta being spicy. I could not eat it. The server noticed that I could not eat it and asked if she could bring me something else and she took the pasta off the bill. That was very kind.
Frustrated at the beginning. We were a party of three and one was running a little late and they refused to seat us even though the restaurant was less than 1/3 full. We had to eat at the bar. When we left an hour later the place still had more than half the seats available. I would have said something to Marcus but he sat in the front on his phone the entire time.

Great atmosphere! Unfortunately we were too early to enjoy the music but I am sure this place is fantastic with live music. The food was good but I had very high expectations so was a bit disappointed. Will definitely go back, but will skip the gumbo and go for the hamburger or chicken instead.

Loved the vibe although it necame super noisy quickly. One plate was served very undercooked so it was taken back to finish. By the time it was done everyone else had long finished theirs. An offer of a free glass of wine or dessert would have been the mark of good customer service. Other food was very good as we had expected and desserts novel and yummy. Would I go back? Have to think about that a bit more in a City defined by excellent restaurants.

Very disappointing The food we ordered did not seem to match what was on the menu. The brussel sprout side dish was mostly ochra, not what anyone wanted. The swedish meatballs were awful, tasteless. On the good side, the crab cakes were excellent and the ceviche was good.

Food and ambiance was great. Pricey. Service was good BUT the waiters and cleaners kept wiping down the table while we were still sitting there and in between courses. It’s like they wanted us out of there immediately.
