It fully and completely lives up to the hype! I want to go back again and again.
Awful in every way. Disappointed
I have been to the Red Rooster on several occasions and always loved it, bu this time was a disappointment due to our waiter.
After a 30 min wait with only water on the table, we politely asked our waiter if we could have the wine we had ordered. He answered in a rude way and then treated us very badly throughout the whole dinner. It was very awkward because I had brought my collegues who never had been there before. The noice on a Friday evening was also a bit overwhelming but we could have put up with that if it would not have been for the waiter, who turned the whole dinner into sheer awkwardness. The bar and the music downstairs with the friendly staff was luckily enough as nice as always.
Food was great. We didn’t get a good table, but I’m really happy I went. The waitstaff was on point, beverages always filled, napkins folded, etc. They did a really good job considering how busy they were on. Fri night.
The food was very good, we all got chicken, I had chicken and waffles and it was both crispy and moist. The waffle was cornbread and was fluffy and tasty. It is a little on the small side, but the vibe is really good.
Best fried chicken and cornbread ever. Our waitress, Petra, made us feel like we were in her home.
GREAT food. Only complaint is the service is slow.
Beat devilled eggs and corn bread ever! Chicken was dry.
There were two issues that kept this from being a perfect night. First, our last appetizer, crab cakes, came with the entrees and second the gravy and mashed potatoes on my date’s chicken plate was lukewarm, not hot. Food was delicious, we’d been looking forward to eating here for a long time!
Service was perfect.Food was amazing...I got the hot honey yardbird ..The chicken was incredibly moist and the seasoning and flavor was perfect. Would definitely return next time I visit NY again.
Made a reservation and still had to wait. Then we were rushed to order.
I simply walked away wondering if a chef as good and skilled as the owner is was served the food I ate would have felt that it was a fitting example of his abilities?
Great experience every time. Good food, cocktails, and phenomenal music! Go now!!!
Always amazing food, service, atmosphere and people.
Red Rooster was flagged as a must for my recent visit to NYC. Although I stayed in the Financial District, it was well worth the drive. The Hostess as pleasant and accommodating, I had an injury that caused a challenge with my access and mobility. She ensured that my seating accommodated both. My waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. The service was quick. The ambience and decor was wonderful. Rich in culture, influenced by music and art with jaunty hats that reflect the owners. Now, the food was mouthwatering in appearance and absolutely delicious!! I ordered the Hot Honey Chicken and the chicken was flavorful from the skin through the tender meat. Two thumbs up!
Maybe we are just getting too old and cranky (early 70's), but we do not plan to return to Red Rooster despite their having excellent food. We were a party of six celebrating a birthday. Before the live music began the noise level was high, but we could have conversation. Once the music started we could only talk to the person next to us, if we shouted. The food was excellent and the service was great too. We found the selection and prices to all be good. This should have been a great night out. The music was good, but so loud it bordered on painful. If we wanted a concert this would have been fine, but we wanted to talk to friends and enjoy a good meal. Red Rooster isn't the only place convinced that loud music is a must. Unfortunately, it is a turn off for us.
We were in NYC for a few days and wanted to try Marcus Samuelsson's restaurant. Had heard good things about it and he just seems like such a nice guy, with an interesting backstory. We're glad that we went but if this were any other restaurant, we'd probably rate it much lower than I have here.
The staff, apart from the chef, were all very professional and engaging. When we asked our waiter if one of the dishes could be made gluten free by leaving out a scallion pancake under the chicken, we heard the chef's very negative response. Ultimately he did substitute a corn tortilla but gluten sensitivities are so common now that we were pretty shocked by his reaction.
Beyond that though, the food was only so-so. We all ordered different dishes so we tried 4 different entrees (out of only about 6 or so on the menu).
We love good food and spent much of our time around NYC trying all different types of food, from high end to street food and appreciate the full range. I wouldn't go back to Red Rooster or recommend it to a friend. It was fun to go and experience it once, but honestly there is better food available without making the trek there. We really wanted to love the restaurant and the food.
I love the place, I love the people (both the employees and the clientele), I love the food (of course), and the proximity to a convenient train. My only quibble--and I feel like such a killjoy philistine writing this--is that the music, although terrific in quality, was too damn loud. My guests, whom I love, had to leave the table to find tissue to put in their ears. Understandably, this put a bit of a damper on what was otherwise a lovely, enjoyable, special time. Maybe there are nights with no music, I don't know. If so, those would be the nights that my friends and I would choose to come back.
It was loud but it was an experience. My chicken was very salty but my friend said hers was great. Service was superb!
Amazing - seriously phenomenal food
So fantastic to get up to Harlem for incredible chicken, shrimp, corn bread...grits OMG that grits
Do not leave NYC without some Red Rooster!
Always a wonderful place to have an amazing meal. The catfish is to die for.
We came in with a party of 8 and several of the diners had never eaten here before. Well I must say, everyone raved about the food, service and the over-all dining experience. Needless to say, we cannot wait to go back
Loved the restaurant except the sound level was deafening. Couldn’t hear anyone at my table.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. Good food, nice/diverse crowd, and great service. I only wish the delicious mac and greens had been served piping hot instead of room temperature. Cornbread is a must..so delicious. Be aware that the dining chairs aren't that comfortable. The seat is small and hard. Overall, we enjoyed our evening.
Great food , service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
We had brunch at the restaurant on a Sunday and it was a great experience! The atmosphere was great as was the food and service. But the best thing was the live music! I'll definitely come back!
Service was incredibly slow. Staff was very friendly but our food came out cold after such a long wait. My table all said they would not come back.
Amazing! I'm from Maryland and had eaten there before. Was back in town with friends and insisted we eat there. They loved it too.
The food was very good as always, but the live music was surprisingly poor quality
My second visit was spectacular! From the cornbread, deviled eggs, Yardbird and dessert! Great staff and fantastic Rnvironment! Love it more than ever! The Best of Harlem.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Always a pleasure to go to RRH
This was by far the best meal we’ve had in NYC- ever. It was delicious and the service was on point. We started with the chicken and waffles app and Mac n cheese. It was salty, sweet, crunchy, delectable! The Mac n cheese was hot and cheesy. It was by leaps and bounds the best- even better than my homemade $80 Mac! My hubby had the yard bird and I had the ribs. The chicken was incredibly moist and steamy. It came with mashed potato and cabbage. I had the ribs. They were sweet, sticky, and had an Asian kick to them. I would def order again. For drink I ordered the savoy and the obamatini. Both drinks were delicious and got me a little tipsy!!
Had a great time, the bar stools had no padding for your butt.so you're not sitting a long time .
We really enjoy having brunch at the Red Rooster. The food tasted great and the music was an added bonus. We’ll definitely go back!!
Back in the day, we used to go to this place to get a great meal. Today it is a tourist destination with far less value. Don’t get me wrong, the food was good , but not worth $27 for two pieces of chickenIs very expensive .
Once we arrived at our table, the service was very good. It baffles me the wait time before getting to the table. After all, isn’t the concept of a reservation that your table will be ready within 5 to 10 minutes of your arrival. The last two times we waited over 20 minutes despite having a reservation.
It was fine. They used to be better.
My overall experience was wonderful. My chicken leg looked a bit strange that came with the chicken & waffles? I wasn't used to that cut of meat. Otherwise I will return & recommend to others.
Given the rave reviews and the crowds, it was bit of a disappointment; good, but not great. And it was LOUD!
We came to New York after reading the book, Yes Chef and learning about Marcus Sameulsson. I wasn't impressed. The greens were tough , the potato knish was lumpy , not flavorful. We also had the chicken , the sweetness was lovely. I did enjoy the haricort and the crab cakes were nice .
