    Food was a complete disappointment as it was bland and lacking much flavor (chicken and waffles), not to mention that the prices were incredibly high for the food portions provided. The ambiance and decorations were very well done and accommodating. Service was ok at best as our waitress barely came back to check on us during our meal. Not going back for sure.

    Bartender Jorge was fantastic! He created an amazing drink for me and my husband loved his Manhattan. Loved the decor and vibe of the restaurant and ALL service personnel were incredible—didn't miss a beat! We were, sadly, disappointed in the food (but loved the deviled eggs). Fried chicken dry, shrimp and grits lacked flavor, and the sides were (mac and cheese and collards) underwhelming. Marcus, please come to Miami and take another look at your recipes. In our opinion they need to be tweaked. Never made it to your restaurant in Harlem and were so excited to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the Miami venue but left disappointed in the food but not the service. Hope to hear from you so that we can try again. Im checking no for the recommendation to a friend because of the food. We would go back for drinks and appetizers at the bar. I do want to add that our son and daughter-in-law dined there during one of your celebrations with a pre-fix menu and loved it. We’d like to give the restaurant another try in a few months.

    This was my second outing to Red Rooster. I came back for the corn bread and was now wooed by the fish. Bar tender was funny and kind (thank you Jorge). Waiter was quick to recommend if asked but not pushy. Corn bread was still as amazing and the mac and cheese was just as good as the last time (caution: it does have a kick). Didn't love the collard greens this time but the fried chicken and the fish were outstanding. Water glasses were constantly refilled without asking. On a scale of 1 - 10, easily a 9.5. It is a bit pricy with drinks and dinner coming out to $100 per person, but well worth it.

    Wow! We were excited to see what Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster was all about and it did not disappoint. Marcus' cornbread is hands down the best cornbread we've ever had and the wahoo crudo was a light, bright, and refreshing with great flavors. But neither prepared us for the carefully crafted, balanced, and delightful flavors of the fire roasted wagyu oxtail! It's fall-apart tender and is amazing to eat right off the bone and even better with the bib lettuce and accompaniments as a taco. We added the jerk sweet potato and the forever brasied greens and yum! You'll be full and happy with whatever you order here but definitely don't skip dessert! The Viking of the Keys is a better version of any key lime pie and the chocolate chip cookie skillet with red velvet oreo ice cream is every bit as ooey gooey and comforting as a warm cookie should be times 10! And one last recommendation, request Jorge as your server! His knowledge, energy, and amazing service took this great food experience to another level. He was so genuinely friendly and helpful and made our whole dining experience enjoyable and worry-free. Thanks, Jorge!

    We’ve been to Red Rooster many, many times in NYC and Overtown and this past visit was particularly, disappointing. 1. On an 85 degree day, we were seated on their patio under a fan that did not work and not offered to move elsewhere on the patio, despite there being plenty of availability. 2. The server was unkind and passive aggressive throughout the entire visit. We were an easy going group of 4 who was just looking to have a relaxing afternoon. In fact, I specifically chose this restaurant after having such wonderful service in the past. 3. There were flies everywhere. Again, not sure what’s happening, but this was not anything we’ve ever experienced in the past. Overall, not a great experience.

    Great food - unique and very tasty. Love the deviled eggs, greens and grain salad and all of the sandwiches for lunch (haven't made it to dinner yet), the environment in warm and inviting and the staff is friendly and welcoming. My #1 lunch spot.

    The food was subpar. We were here for lunch. Some of their staples weren’t on the menu which we came for. The outside had a fly issue. Flies kept swarming our table. We were told the two ceiling fans couldn’t be turned on by us because they didn’t work. My husband couldn’t get his hamburger cooked to his likeness. The prefix menu offerings weren’t good. It was a complete 180 from we visited last time. It’s gone down sadly. Quite disappointing.

    I really enjoyed the decor, although the outside area had to be closed due to mosquitoes, and the playlist was phenomenal! It felt like an old school party could break out at any moment! The cornbread, black kale salad and fried green tomato appetizers were delicious, all had different flavor profiles than what we were used to, but very tasty. We had the Rooster dish with collards and macaroni and cheese. The rooster and collards were extraordinary! Service was friendly, the drinks were on point!

    I think they were slammed and possibly low on staffing in the kitchen? It was Father's Day and Juneteenth so that probably made things tougher for them to be more timely. The food was outstanding we just had to wait much longer than ever before but it gave us time to bond as a family. The entertainment was excellent. IT took 15 min just to get seated for our 6:30 reservation. Everything seemed to take 15-20 min - drinks - appetizer 1 - appetizer 2 and then entrees came out together at 8pm. We have a lovely evening but it just took a while which had never been our experience here. I would go back in a second for sure and try more goodies on the menu. The Ox Tail dish was worth the $125 price tag and the wait. The salmon on crispy rice may have been the best I ever had, better than Kuro.

    A short walk from my office, this is one of my favorite lunch options, whether for friends and colleagues or clients. Love three-course lunch with the unusually tasty devilled eggs, to the grains salad and the sandwich options, each of which is particularly good -- and I always have to add the cornbread and butter. It's an entirely unique treat.

    Omg I can’t wait to come back- seriously my new go to and when guests come in town it’s a don’t miss/ even with all these new michelen star restaurants that we revived and all the new “hot spots in the scene to be seen” not putting them down but the ambiance the staff THE FOOD was all so delicious and fun!!! We couldn’t even decide what to order so we shared alot and could have had more. The funny thing is I don’t like cornbread I find it to well, corny but this was outstanding even took an order home !! From the fish to the octopus to all the other entrees we tried we are talking PERFECT EXICUTION AND PRESENTATION!!! Oh and the other apps and the oysters and don’t get me started on the three desserts we tried! What a cocktail menu too… obviously I can’t say enough - what a fun place with a cool vibe!! Our waiter was wonderful the hostess as sweet as could be the open kitchen you could tell they were cooking with love ❤️ and you could taste it!! Thank You for a wonderful dining experience- Marcus you really hit it out of the park!!

    The music on Sunday is waaaaayyyy to loud. The gospel music is beautiful, but I can barely hear my own thoughts. It was difficult even to talk to the waiter. Overall, the food was phenomal (mama eps biscuits are a must) and the service was great! I would love to come back but the music will have to be much lower. It’s just way to loud and it takes away from the experience.

    Excellent brunch on Saturday. The service and ambiance are a great way to spend your Saturday brunch. Nice background music and an amazing art collection. Nice wine and drink list. We shared the seafood tower with yard bird, butter lettuce and biscuits. Easily would be enough for 3 if not 4 folks. We will def be back soon too try the dinner menu.
