The host and wait staff was really great and professional. Such a fun experience eating outside during COVID-19 in the beautiful sidewalk cafe with an awesome D.J.
From the Hostess, waiter to the chef & the food the ambience of the restaurant was just awesome.. The only thing my wife says could beat it was if Chef Marcus Samuelson popped up!
They hooked me up for my birthday!! Amazing food, attentive staff and some complimentary shots.

Excellent food and service! I can’t wait to go back...Best fried chicken I’ve had in my life!!
Wow, wow, wow! Nicole, we are extraordinarily flattered to read that you found our chicken to be the best you've ever had (we completely agree - it is soooo good!). We believe our fried chicken is what food dreams are made of 😉. Thanks for being our guest and for sharing your wonderful review here on Open Table. We look forward to your return one day soon.

Wonderful outside COVID-19 set up! Plexiglass between tables, tents and outdoor heaters - we were so comfy and cozy food as ALWAYS was delish delish delish and service was fantastic! I so so so so love this restaurant! Can't wait to go back

Thanks for trusting us with your safety, and for choosing to dine at Red Rooster during these most unusual times. It's great knowing how much you enjoyed your visit, and we look forward to your return one day soon. Cheers! The Red Rooster Team
Best chicken and waffles I’ve ever had! I can’t wait to come back and try more of the menu!
Food was delicious definitely going back, staff was good very informative on the menu and drinks..
Nice place. Eat there during the pandemic and I really missed the ambience but besides that great overall.
Food was great, staff was great and ambiance was great. Really liked this place. I strongly recommended. Only negative I would say is that signature cocktails are expensive but not strong. Not really worth the price you pay.
Awesome time, delicious food, great drinks, the chicken and waffles was best I've ever had! Also had the catfish and lobster, highly recommend! Lovely service and lots of Covid precautions taken, felt very safe. Had a great time and looking forward to going back soon!

Love this place. Great food. Great music.
The cornbread was delicious!! We also really enjoyed the Chicken & Waffles as well as the Jerk Salmon bowl. The service was incredible and the decor and ambiance were fantastic!
We were so pleased to see the Red Rooster had reopened. Most of the favorites are on the menu. I have to say we did not explore it much. Because there were for of us, we went straight for the Chicken Tower with 20 pieces of hot honey yardbird, cornbread and sides. Needless to say, there were abundant leftovers for future meals. Next time we’ll be back for the whole charred cauliflower and some shrimp and grits.
Judith, we are so happy to be open, too! Glad you joined us recently, and had a five star experience - that makes us very happy. Enjoy your leftovers for a few days, but definitely come back soon and explore our menu - we have so many delicious items to try! Thank you for sharing your visit here on Open Table, we really appreciate it. With warmest regards, The Red Rooster Team
My experience at Red Rooster Harlem was one that I’ll never forget. The food was made with so much love, the service was impeccable and the atmosphere was vibrant. Such a comforting dining experience and I will surely be back.

First dining inside - felt very safe, same great place :)
The live music was great but a bit too loud. Otherwise, a really fun time with great food.
Red Rooster is always a delight. Great people, service, food, and drinks. Go and have a ball.
Hands down best southern cooking tasted!
Wonderful brunch with live music and social distancing. It was amazing
The ambiance was full of energy despite the challenges we've experienced with the Corona Virus and the food was Outstanding! I took my wife there for her birthday and we had a great time!
Excellent food, great staff, beautiful setting. I shall return if only for the collard greens, and everything else that comes with it.
The food here was very overpriced both taste and quality wise. The ambiance is nice but there's definitely a reason for the subpar reviews!

We are genuinely disappointed that we did not meet those expectations. Thank you for taking the time to give us your honest feedback.

They did a wonderful job given the challenging circumstances. The food was excellent and staff were welcoming and contributed greatly to a positive experience.
I wanted to go to Red Rooster for the past year or so and I finally was able to. And it met every one of my expectations!
Service was amazing, music by the dj was a perfect blend of hip hop and R N B. Food was great, you must try the fried chicken it’s perfect.
It was a great outing. We felt safe seated in the outside patio. All the staff were attentive and respectful with masks and monitoring the "socially distancing" Of course the food was wonderful - but the comfort of feeling safe made it a lovely night out.
Mary, your review just made our day. We've always wanted our guests to feel like family, and now all we want is for our guests to feel safe. It is wonderful knowing that our goals were met and you enjoyed your recent Red Rooster visit. Thank you for giving us a chance, and we very much appreciate your kind words.

Food portion are small. Salt level in salmon dish , was excessive and dangerous.
Sparking water, unsatisfying as it was made in the restaurant to a poor quality.
Ice Cream Sundae dessert, was designed for a child and cost $10. Very disappointed.
