    The food was delicious. Both Entrees and dessert. Lobster roll and Collard Greens were amazing. Shrimp and grits delicious, donuts and cornbread amazing. The only complaint was how limited the menu is. Not many options but at least none were a miss. Also, the seating was pretty close to other tables. Customer service was outstanding. I would absolutely return and maybe sit outside .

    This place is great, from the vibe to the food and the service. We tried three appetizers ( crab cakes and grilled cesar with shrimp ceviche) and Chicken and waffles, and the yard bird entree. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. We had high expectations of a Marcus Samuelsson restaurant and we weren’t disappointed.

    I love the food and service, but I was very disappointed that the Sing gospel performance was cut short as was the history. I waited two months for a brunch reservation with my family to share the experience I had had and that area fell short. I know there were some amazing singers in the background.

    This is a wonderful place to try new and different kinds of food in a very lively and friendly atmosphere. there are many vegetarian options in addition to the usual fare. We came back with an out-of-town guest who had heard of its origins and the Chef’s evolution and she absolutely was thrilled to actually go to a restaurant she had read of for years.

    My family had a great time at Red Rooster! We came for my parent's anniversary, and not only did thr staff acknowledge it, but they gave us a surprise dessert at the end! We all wanted fried chicken so decided to get the tower, which ended up having more than the advertised 20 pieces, we ended up taking half the order home. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious and came out very quickly. Definitely recommend!

    Sooo disappointed! The food was less than mediocre. We had the chicken sandwich, fries, hot honey chicken, garlic mash and appetizers. No subtlety in flavors. Everything over salted. Chicken was dry and the honey tasted like what one gets out of a jar. The Guacamole side was tasteless although the yuca fritters accompanying it were tasty. Ordered one of their cocktails with the ‘extra’ ounces for addtl $5 and it was watered down by ‘extra’ ice. The waitstaff and ambience were great but food should be a restaurant’s priority and this clearly was not the case!

    We loved this place and our grandson now wants to become a DJ! Thanks to DJ Harry who told him everything he wanted to know. The staff was super friendly and the food was excellent. The salmon was super fresh and the seafood pasta was a hit. The guac was a good start and portions were generous. We simply had a wonderful time and it feels good to be back in NYC.

    The entire evening was fabulous. I was asked in the app if it was a special occasion and I said it was for a birthday and they surprised us and brought us a birthday dessert with a candle. It was low key without too much fuss. I liked that. The service and wait staff were great. The food was delicious. I'd go back there. Oh and the 2 mojitos I had were perfect. Thanks
