    It was our first visit to RR Harlem and it was an enjoyable experience. We were greeted promptly upon our arrival and our reservations on Open Tae were honored immediately (as always). Upon entering the restaurant, we could tell we were going to like the vibe. The three-person band was fantastic and although a bit loud, it was very enjoyable. The service was ok, but our server was busy and he did what he could to fit us into his work. It’s important to note that he was very friendly and obviously, very experienced. I think he was just swamped. The food was excellent and the drinks were good as well. Again, overall, it was a nice dining experience and we will go back when we are in the Harlem area.

    This was a great way to start the week. The service and food were excellent. I started off with the deviled eggs and enjoyed the well seasoned shrimp and super creamy grits as my entree. We were also entertained by a small band and three amazing vocalists. Who knew Mondays could be this good!?!

    We were at Ginny’s Supper club downstairs at Red Rooster for the Sunday Gospel Brunch. The BEST way to spend Mother’s Day, given that I couldn’t be with my kids. My husband and I loved it! The food was great- fried chicken and mac n cheese with collard greens. And the concert was fantastic- those amazing voices! Tell the audience there’s mousse served at the end of the buffet dinner. A lovely surprise but we were full.

We sincerely hope this incident does not dissuade you from returning; we'd love to show you a flawless visit. Warm regards, The Red Rooster Harlem Team

    Overall expereince was very good, however food came out a bit too fast!!! We were still eating our appetizers when the main course arrived, and all of the food items arrived before our drinks. The wait staff should pay more attention to when the food is delivered so that the diners can enjoy a more leisurely and enyoyable meal. It was not very crowded (there were lots of empty tables), so it is not as if there were people waiting to be seated. I have been to Red Rooster many times (I was born and grew up in Harlem), so I will certainly return again, but rather than order my food all at once, I will wait to order the next course when I am ready to eat it so that the food does not arrive at the table all at once.

    Everything was great!! The shrimp and grits was amazing. I didn’t really care for the Sangria it was a lil too sweet for my liking. I also had the Pom in Paradise and loved it. Definitely will be back again

    The food was incredible. The chicken was excellent as were the sides. The service was wonderful, helpful and cooperative even when I expanded the party from 2-3. I must have misread the website. I thought Sunday day was the live music but it was Sunday night and for me it was a little loud.

    regular tourist food. A overhyped and underwhelming dinner location. Way too loud music had us yelling at each other.

    Amazing atmosphere. Unique, local art covers the walls. Music keeps the energy flowing, but doesn’t interrupt conversation. Fantastic food with Southern and African influences. The “Yes Chef” cocktail is a must. Great for locals and tourists…anyone looking for a great meal

    We have wanted to go to a Marcus Samuelson restaurant for so long and this restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fantastic. The restaurant is decorated with wonderful history. Our server was friendly and gave us great tips of what to have. We had to get a piece of the hot honey chicken. Fantastic along with everything else we had….deviled eggs, cornbread, mac and greens, lobster roll with collards.
