    Happened to be in Harlem late on a Monday afternoon and took the chance to revisit Red Rooster. It was very hot outside, and the AC seemed to be struggling a bit inside. No fault there but I think it did affect the vibe a bit. Staff was great. The food was good+, just not great 5-star. The chicken was very good, but the breast was about the same size as the thigh. Prices are wacky everywhere right now so hard to judge against the market. It just seemed a bit expensive. Trying to give an honest review while also acknowledging how hard it is to work in and run restaurants right now. I love you all!

    Red Rooster HarlemResponded 1 day agoWe love you back, JackNYC! Thank you for being our guest. Despite the current economic and workforce challenges, our goal is always to provide a perfect dining experience, and we apologize for coming up short. We very much appreciate your being our guest and for your honest review. Please do visit us again the next time you find yourself in Harlem. It would be great if we had another chance to impress!

    The food was amazing and the service was great. Chicken and waffles, fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, the way I like it and, the chicken was amazing. The others that were dining with me had the spicy salmon bowl, lobster roll and, shrimp and grits, everyone was extremely happy with the food and service. Will definitely recommend Red Rooster.

    Oh my goodness!!! We had the absolute best time at Red Rooster. We come here each time we visit NYC. The fried chicken is phenomenal; the service and kindness was so appreciated; the ambiance/vibe was wonderful; and we just couldn’t imagine a better dining experience!! Our server (Tiara) was incredible: she stopped by to tell us how well behaved our kids were and secretly asked us about refills for them, which was so thoughtful. Travel as quickly as you can to this delicious and dreamy destination!!!

    Been to Red Rooster several times but never during brunch. The brunch menu is very limited so most of us ordered from the all day menu. My husband who is vegetarian ordered the omelette from the brunch menu, he said it was cold and not very good (undercooked veggies etc), which is a shame. I love the cornbread but there was an eggshell in my piece which was somewhat off putting. Everything else was ok.

    I came to New York for my birthday. I was very excited about having dinner at the Red Rooster. It appears to be a popular neighborhood spot. Having said that, my sister and I were very disappointed with the meal and the lackluster service. We knew that Chef Samuelson would not be there in person, we thought the food would taste as though he were. Unfortunately, it also the floor could have been a little cleaner. We wouldn't rush back.

    really good choices, and the cocktails were varied and not run-of-the-mill. shrimp with grits were not overcooked, tho the little bits of sausage in there were. collards were terrific, ditto spicy cauliflower. lobster roll was OK, maybe it had been made too much in advance and was too cold from over-refrigeration? overall, a very good experience, would definitely return
