Love this place!!! Will come again when visiting New York!!
If you are interested in trying some food that you will not find in other restaurants in New York, then do try The Red Rooster. This is my third or four visit to this eating establishment and I was not disappointed. We reserved for an evening meal and as we arrived, jazz musicians were already playing in the restaurant. So we moved from the table that was originally assigned to us more towards the back of the restaurant, near the kitchen, where the noise level was more tolerable. Their list of cocktails is extensive and several wines are available by the glass if you feel that you do not wish to order an entire bottle. For dessert, we tried their strawberry shortcake which is an absolute must if you do decide to dine there. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you for being such a loyal fan of Red Rooster, GoodBuddy. We very much appreciate your taking the time to clearly delineate the highlights of your experience so that future guests can get a feel of what to expect when dining at Red Rooster (as you stated, we are no ordinary restaurant). It was our pleasure hosting you on multiple occasions, and we are looking forward to seeing you again one day soon. Cheers! The Red Rooster Harlem Team
Food was excellent with my favorites being the deviled eggs and sweet potato ginger soup! Glad we celebrated our anniversary trip to NYC from ATL with Red Rooster Harlem.
Everything we ordered was delicious, we were seated quickly, great experience. Live jazz was very nice, if a tad too loud at times. Would return.
Our experience at Red Rooster was amazing! The food , the ambience the entertainment.... wow a total experience! The service was awesome! I love Red Rooster !!
Dinner was delicious from beginning to end and the waiters were awesome! Jackie's hospitality and friendliness is the reason I'll be back time and time again!

One of the coolest places I’ve ever been! Amazing fried chicken, Mac & greens and cornbread. Service was wonderful. It was noisy but worth the ambiance. Live music there is a real treat to see, full of life. Would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for some soul food or lively culture.

Toda una experiencia el
Brunch en Red Roster, servicio inmejorable, Musica en vivo de otro mundo y la comida supera además todo lo anterior

Outstanding news, Keia! Thank you for stopping in and for spreading the good word about Red Rooster Harlem. Your kind words mean a lot to us. We can't wait to see you again, either! Cheers! The Red Rooster Harlem Team
An absolutely delightful meal, and the service was better than 5-star, but the scale here only goes as high as 5.
Good food, generally good ambiance. The music was way too loud.
Dear Kevin, Thanks for joining us. We are pleased that you enjoyed our incredible flavors; however, we do apologize that the music level was uncomfortably high. While we love the excitement that our music program can generate, we certainly understand your frustration when it impacts your overall experience. We sincerely hope you will not be deterred from joining us again, for our entertainment changes daily, and perhaps a different day may work better. Warmly, The Red Rooster Team
Great food, clean and great service. Would highly recommend
I have yet to have a bad experience at Red Rooster. Yes, the music is very loud, but I like when they have a DJ or live music. The food is always great, so many tasty offerings and our server was great, constantly checking in on us. My favorite thing to get is the Yep! Chicken and Waffles, but there are so many good things, so bring a large group so you can try a little of everything!

Adoroa has very good service. Food was great as well as the ambiance
The food was delicious, the ambience lovely and the service outstanding. Our server (can’t remember his name. black guy glasses) was so nice.
Had catfish & black eye peas! Peas were hard and cold. Fish was like warm! Wasn't brought any condiments! Tarter sauce or hot sauce! His crab cake was alright. Garlic Mashed potatoes okay. Best was his Pina colada!
Went to Red Rooster while vacationing with my family. The food was fantastic. It came really quickly and was fresh and hot. Our server was super friendly and helpful. We enjoyed everything we had. The chicken and waffles was great! We even got to meet Chef Marcus! He was incredibly friendly!
I'm a person who believes in supporting Black Businesses n understands the importance. I chose the resturant to celebrate my Birthday. There was 16 people seated for dinner (4 tables) n 2 more of my guest stopped by for take out. Yet, we need not feel appreciated, fully respected or valued throughout our dinning experience.
We are generational members of the Harlem community. We're not celebrities, other minorities or white people. Sadly, I truly feel that our "common folk status" prevented us from receiving adequate service.
Also a thousand dollars was spent on food n drinks. Yet when it can time cut the birthday cake. The manager told us it would cost an extra $5 per slice to have a staff member cut the cake. I respectfully declined n cut the cake myself n served it to my guest. Luckily the knife was provided for free, but the plates n forks for the cake took a while to arrive.
When the bills arrive for each table there was add ons and the bills was mixed up according to tables. That said, the food was food and we ordered a variety. The food help temper my guest. However, there is now 18 people who will not be returning to the resturant.
The service was great and the staff were wonderful. The music was fun but so loud it was difficult to hear any of the conversation. The food was good, but the chicken, in my opinion was a bit dry.
Love the Red Rooster! The wait staff are amazing. The food is top-notch both in taste and in presentation. A trip to New York City always includes a stop at Red Rooster for us. Really loved the donuts.
We love that you love us Karen! Great news! NYC has so many outstanding restaurants, and we are flattered that you always choose to dine with us when you are in town - so flattering (and humbling). Thank you for being a loyal fan, and we are looking forward to your return one day soon. And yes, those donuts are something else! Safe travels, The Red Rooster Harlem Team
We had read reviews ahead of time and knew what to order. We were very please with everything
Chicken a la carte
Mac and cheese and greens
If we came again we’d probably order exactly the same thing
We were celebrating our late Mothers’, in the city they both loved! Excellent F&B service!!! And, the DJ was everything!! Cheers 🥂
Noise level: Anoying... music way to loud in outside dining area so talking amongst us was very difficult!
The jerk salmon bowl is OUT OF CONTROL DELICIOUS.
We completely agree, Doctora! Our jerk salmon bowl quickly became an employee favorite, and we are thrilled that you loved it as well! Great news! Please do come back and see us again soon. Cheers! The Red Rooster Harlem
Never disappointed with visits to Red Rooster…always consistently top notch in food, beverage, service, ambiance…hospitality personified!
This makes us so happy! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We love your loyalty - it means to the world to us. See you again soon - Cheers! The Red Rooster Harlem
Delicious!! The yardbird and salted caramel donuts were awesome!
Our server/waitress was excellent & very attentive. She also gave us very good recommendations for our meal. Sorry, I can't recall her name.
This was a very fun evening! Enjoyed the music and the food and service was terrific.
We are so happy to read that you had a very fun evening with us here at Red Rooster Harlem! Our live music program adds a whole other level of excitement - glad you enjoyed!

The food, service, and atmosphere were all amazing. The gospel brunch choir had outstanding voices.
Josh was an amazing server – food was amazing as always and really enjoyed the gospel music!
Hi mkholla, How amazing is our Sunday Brunch? It really is something to behold! The Gospel singers (Sing Harlem) are absolutely amazing! We are delighted you joined us and had such a memorable experience. Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to spread the good word about our extraordinary brunch and Josh's amazing service - we deeply appreciate it.

Their Sunday afternoon performance was soulful and culturally nourishing. Great experience.
We love that description of our Sunday Brunch Gospel Singers - soulful and culturally nourishing - what a great way to convey our brunch vibes. Thank you for being our guest and for sharing your wonderful feedback. It is our hope that you will join us again the next time you are in the area, Cheers- The Red Rooster Harlem Team
Wonderful! It gave the experience we wanted for our friend. She had never experienced the Red Rooster Sunday Brunch experience. Thanks for making her smile.
The food was delicious! The service was fast and the staff was very friendly.
We ate on the outside patio which was delightful. The wait staff were efficient and courteous and the food was fantastic. We ordered the fried chicken and several sides. The fried chicken was amazing. I usually don’t eat the skin off fried chicken, but this was so tasty that I ate a good portion of it. The sides also good. I particularly enjoyed the greens which were perfectly seasoned and had a touch of vinegar flavor with just a hint of sweet-maybe a touch of molasses?
The strawberry short cake served in a highball glass was just the right note to close the meal.
Our perfectly seasoned greens had a touch of love, BlueLightSpecial, just love, and, well, maybe molasses! Thank you, so very much, for being our guest and for taking the time to provide such fabulous feedback regarding your visit to Red Rooster Harlem. It appears you ordered some of our signature dishes, and we are delighted you enjoyed them. Please do join us again the next time you are in the neighborhood. Cheers! The Red Rooster Harlem Team
A true Harlem gem. Great food, great ambience and amazing service!
The inside of Red Rooster is so fun and I love the design. Great vibe and how fun is having a DJ inside too! Our food was so tasty and our server was awesome too.
