After a bad experience with the service at Red Rooster over brunch, the manager called me on my cell inviting me back. She also mentioned I would get a $50 credit. Well, they went above and beyond with the charming sound chef coming out and comping is on multiple appetizers and an entree. Fabulous service. And they still gave me a gift card. Red Rooster really turned lemons into lemonade with me. I will go back as soon as I can!

Food was delicious, but kitchen lost our order and figured it out after 50 minutes when we asked what had happened. To their credit, management took care of our dinner.

Our appetizer salad and main courses were delicious. Our waitress (Jessica) was attentive and charming. We found the atmosphere to be fun and lively, but too loud. The desserts were disappointing. I suggest that your pastry chef try the raisin pastry at Kayser bakery; so much better than the dry cinnamon roll.

My family and I had the best time at Red Rooster Sunday night. The food was unbelievably good and the employees were fun, accommodating and friendly. The band was incredible! We picked up a couple of their cd's so that we could enjoy their music at home. We will definitely be back as soon as possible. :)

Sunday brunch with live music was such fun! The food was delicious. The restaurant was very busy so service was a bit slow but we were having a great time so we didn’t mind.

AMAZING restaurant. One of my new favorites. Such great food, service, and drinks! Perfect for a date night or a special occasion. Don’t forget to go downstairs to the speakeasy! Get the wings and cornbread to start and the Mac n cheese is a must side dish.

I wanted to go here for a long time but it is very hard to get reservations. We were 45 minutes late because it was snowing hard and they were doing construction on the subway so we had to take the subway to 96th a bus to 125th walk about 4 blocks then hop in a cab but it was well worth it. They were very nice & only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Server was excellent, very nice and friendly. Food was outstanding but a little pricey. Will definitely go back for another special occasion

A fun place for dinner with friends ,it was loud and energetic. Staff were all great, friendly and personable. We were all happy with the food. We shared cornbread and an order of deviled eggs. Loved the use of pepper jelly in the eggs it offset the mayo really nicely. I had the chicken and waffles. The coating on the chicken was excellent, it was crispy and had lots of flavor of siracha which was a nice spin. The cornbread waffle was very tasty I just wish it was crispier. It is a pet peeve of mine for something crispy to be served with something wet on top like pickled vegetables. I also like the portion size for this dish. It comes under the appetizers but is enough for an entrée if you have a side with it. The ribs were good, kind of vinegar based Asian flavors and they were very meaty and tender. Mashed potatoes were the lumpy kind and good. The wine selection by the glass were not plentiful but were good but thought the pour was a little stingy. Mixed drinks were also small, two sips and done. We did not get dessert because nothing sounded enticing and didn't reflect the southern BBQ theme also the ones that passed by our table were really tiny looking. All in all I would rate Red Rooster as good to very good.
