This place has been on my list for a very long time. I promised that the next time I was in NY that I would go and we did. The visit was an experience within itself. The host was amazing! He gave us a tour and took pictures of me and my boyfriend. The food was delicious! We ordered the deviled eggs, the wings, the jerk salmon and the buccatini Piccadilly. The food was what I would expect from a famous chef. Marcus Samuelson did not disappoint. He was able to provide a wonderful experience in Harlem. We had so much fun and I'll go back again and again.

I had been waiting forever to finally eat at red rooster but had to hold off due to the pandemic. I literally can’t say enough good things about this place. From the cocktails, to the corn bread, to the yard bird. Every bite was absolutely scrumptious.

This may have been the best chicken I've had in my life! Def worth it, and it was a super cool vibe. Also we somehow were sat next to the herb garden, and it was super cool watching the bar tender etc swing by occasionally to get fresh herbs for the drinks. The corn bread is a must order, and the deviled eggs were delish, definitely recommend.

First time dining indoors since Mar 2020. I felt safe and that employees and diner took safety measures to reduce risk.

Food and cocktails were amazing. Worth every penny. Art and ambiance help provide an overall pleasant experience. You’ll leave feeling well taken care of.

A truly special dining experience. The hosts, bartender, and waitstaff were all welcoming and attentive. The atmosphere is joyful and relaxed. The food and drinks are wonderful. So glad it was our first time in a restaurant since the start of the pandemic. It was a total pleasure.

My boyfriend and his twin brother’s birthday. The was okay. They came with half food while the other guest had to wait for their food. once most of us were finishing meals that’s when the rest of the meals came. I was some unclarity when it came to the waiter’s knowledge of the food items on the menu.

Great service, great food, great ambiance. The indoor dinning at 25 % was comfortably space.
I would go back in a heart-beat. The caramel salted donuts are not to be missed.

This was our first time visiting, food was great service could have been a little better. The server was not very attentive. The wait time from being seated to ordering was long. After we ordered our drinks we watch our drinks sit on the bar for 15 minutes before our waitress bought them over. After our entrees arrived at the table our server didn’t come by to check if ever was alright. After about 10 minutes of waiting we had to ask the hostess if he could grab us some hot sauce. Because of the food and atmosphere we will be giving it another try and definitely recommend you give it a try.

I’d brought my mom here a year ago and it was absolutely perfect. It was so good, I drove my husband and kids 4 hours to try this chicken. I was a little disappointed in the consistency because our chicken tower was over cooked on the outside and one piece was undercooked on the inside. The food was a pretty good value as I spent the same on us 5 as I did the year before on just me and mom, but had the food been just as good I would have given 5 stars. I would come again, but I’d have to already be in town for something else.

From entering the restaurant to leaving, it was the comforting epitome of high-end professionalism.

Everything was great! Even in the COVID-19 environment I felt safe!

The food was unbelievably delicious! I’ve eaten fried chicken all of my life - they cooked it in a different way that was exception!

I can’t wait to return!

Me and my fiancée really loved our experience at Red Rooster Harlem. We went for a date night, just to get out of the house for once, and we’re so glad we did. They were on top of their Covid-19 protocols which made us feel safe while we were there. The service from the host to our waitress was all positive and the food..... AMAZING!

All around a great experience!

We were warmly greeted at the door by a gentleman with a terrific smiled which had us feeling welcome and special before going inside. We were seated and attended to immediately by another highly professional server. We were then met by our main server, a gentleman with a hat, who patiently took our order. As the scrumptious food was presented to us , and after having tasted the Tower of Chicken and the sides, our server took the time explain to us how the dishes were prepared. Our experience with hhe staff and the incredibly prepared food , far exceeded our expectations. And.. based on all of that, we can’t wait to come back to try some of the other offerings on the menu. If you want to impress someone this is the place to bring them!!

Outdoor seating was still very cold. Half of the Valentines Day menu wasn’t available, including drinks. We ate in the cold with our coats on. How romantic. Worse Valentines Day date in my life. Food options weren’t appealing and tasted just as bland. Won’t be returning.

The portraits and paintings highlighted an afrocentric ambience that is delightful and invigorating. The food was wonderful. Everything ran on time. Short time between ordering and serving. Fake candles create intimate dinner lighting without the fire hazard I loved it . Along with the playlist curated for Valentine's day.It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I have every intention of returning.

We went to Red Rooster for Valentine's Day brunch and it was amazing. The chicken and waffles were delicious and shrimp and grits outstanding. Appreciated that they had a real menu and not the typical overpriced 3 course set that many other places default to on VDay.
