Red Rooster Harlem Ratings and Reviews
Had an awesome 1st time experience, food was wonderful - portion size and flavor wise. It was noisy, but that shows that customers were enjoying themselves. I would like to see the menu expended as I know Mr. Samuelsson is an fantastic chef. I can also see this restaurant being a hit in Atlanta, GA.
I have wanted to eat here for years-- I am a huge fan of Marcus Samuelsson and of Harlem, and this restaurant is a great homage to the neighborhood. Everything that I ate was delicious; I highly recommend the chicken and waffles and the taco truck meal for two.
Come from Sweden and fun to visit a ”swedish” owned restaurant as Marcus has a good reputation.
Excellent food with good tastes - party of 4 and everyone satisfied with the food
Ribs marvellous and the shrimps with grits excellent
The waiter could have made a better impression.
Nice atmosphere but as fullybooked and live music the noise level high but acceptable
Dined here while on vacation. Corn bread for appetizer was good. I wanted the fried chicken & waffle but server said it would be all wings as out of other pieces so I ordered shrimp & grits as did my dining partner. It was delicious but table that came in after us got beautiful large pieces of fried chicken & waffles, so I was disapponted because of that. Cinnamon roll for dessert was good but more appropriate for breakfast as were some of the other desserts. However, a live funk band started playing in the bar before we finished dinner so we stood in the bar to enjoy the music and that was the highlight of the evening. The band engaged the audience and played a lively mixture of old and new funk & pop music that had audience dancing & singing along. Never caught the name of the band but they were wonderful performers.
We booked two tables on New Year's Eve at 8.30pm. We were rushed through dinner and at 10pm were told to vacate our table. We were given the choice to either pay 50 bucks up front to stay in the restaurant/bar area for a concert or to leave the building - nobody cared to inform us about this when we had made the reservation. After long discussions, we were eventually allowed to hang around at the bar but were not permitted to leave the area - not even to go to the restrooms(!). In general, despite positive earlier experiences with Red Rooster, we were treated in an utterly inacceptable and disrespectful way despite having spent a considerable amount of money on food and drinks. It seemed that the restaurant's only intention during NYE was to squeeze a maximum of profit from their customers.
Very nice restaurant and food. The only thing that disturbed me was that it was very obvious that they wanted to get rid of us very quick. When we didn’t order any desert, only more wine, they came with the bill without asking. I couldn’t drink up my wine without feeling uncomfortable. It destroyed the overall impression of the place.
Initially, me and my guests were not happy with our waiter’s service. It took him 15 minuets before he greeted us once we sat down. It took another 20 before we received our drinks. He left for the night without informing us. We finally were approached by the manager on that night. The manager made up for the unhappy service we received. He was apologic and invited us to the festives downstairs. He truly made me and my guest feel appreciated. As a result of that I would happily return to Red Rooster for dinner and partying again. I was there on 12/30/2017 night for my birthday.
So good. Try to make it to Red Rooster anytime we're in NYC. It is totally worth the Uber or subway ride to Harlem. Marcus Samuelsson's restaurant is fantastic. The cornbread is to-die-for. The yardbird or jerked chicken very flavorful and tasty. I was craving the brussel sprouts the next morning. The whole atmosphere and friendly staff makes the meal complete. Love it!
