                                                    Fantastic food with amazing ambiance! Caribbean soul food with great music and historic relics, it’s like fine dining in a museum and listening to R&B. I shared the whole snapper with my husband and it was so tasty and tender! All of the dishes here are perfectly seasoned and well prepared, can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. And the service was excellent-attentive and friendly

                                                    Wanted to love this as much as the Harlem location however, the fried chicken lacked any type of flavor. Waffle was soggy like it was frozen. Good corn bread and bacon. Cocktails good too .Maybe chef Marcus needs To visit and give a pep talk to the kitchen staff. Very doubtful we will return. Very unfortunate

                                                    We had the most enjoyable, delicious time. The fried chicken was a tad salty from the brine but that can be fixed. The cornbread ice cream is EPIC, a must try. Loved every minute, ALL staff were friendly and attentive. A must go, if you are in town! Plus its a short walk from the Brightline Miami station.

                                                    Food and service was very good! However, menu options are limited and overpriced IMO. I’ve been to Red Rooster in Harlem and this Miami location blows the NY venue out of the water! The Miami venue is huge and has a beautiful tropical decor. I definitely recommend a visit if you have the $$$. Worth the splurge for birthday and other special occasions.

                                                    Great experience! I really appreciated that our waiter Steven went through the menu with us and told us everything he recommended. It made ordering really easy! We got the cornbread and deviled eggs appetizers plus some oysters to start, which were all amazing! Then we had the avocado toast, the green omelet and the grits and shrimp. SO good, everything. Highly, highly recommend.

                                                    Service was slow. Took us 15 to sit and at least 20 mins to get our drinks after we ordered them. Good vibes though

                                                    We went for lunch. The person at the reception desk was so nice. So was our server. However they seemed to be somewhat overwhelmed even though the restaurant wasn’t hugely crowded. Another person brought out our food. It came out one course at a time. Unfortunately not in the right order. They need a little work on food delivery. Maybe changing up their system? Now for the great part! The food was plentiful and great! We had the fixed price lunch menu and we added cornbread. The deviled eggs were excellent. Two was really a lot but I won’t complain about getting a lot. The greens and grain salad was good too. The burger was also great. So 5 stars for the food! I do have a small quibble however. I don’t think it’s right to charge for iced tea refills. If you go, be careful. I’ll look forward to coming back and having one of their special milk shakes. Maybe for dinner and without the ice cream. 😎

                                                    Eat the cornbread. Eat the fried chicken. Once you've done that, give the cocktails a shot as well. They are refreshing and house made with love, it seems. This place is worth all they hype, from the food to service to the whole vibe.

                                                    The food was delicious and our server was outstanding. Our party of seven are outside for dinner and the setting was very nice but the club half a block away was having a foam party and the music was blaring which competed with what the restaurant was playing and took away from the ambiance. We shared the oxtail and whole fried fish and they were both amazing. For sides and appetizers, we had the cornbread, fried green tomatoes, fried yard bird, succotash, Mac & cheese (decadent), and their collard greens. The only thing I did not absolutely love was the seasoning on the collard greens. The cocktails were also excellent. Highly recommend.

                                                    We ordered cornbread, French toast, the weekender and some Sides. The weekender had some hits and misses- gonna say the smoke pork loin was the biggest miss and didn’t make sense in dish. Perhaps a smoked brisket or burnt pork ends would have been best. The dish could have been better. I also think my French toast was slightly under cooked. The best thing overall were the bartenders- very happy, great service, great energy- they definitely made the experience amazing.

                                                    We wanted a fun Sunday brunch spot and Red Rooster Overtown was one of the top-rated places on Yelp. We arrived about an hour before our reservation start time and had a drink at the bar. The hostess was able to seat us a little earlier than our scheduled reservation time. The staff was very friendly and the food was creative and delicious. Above all, the restaurant decor and storied history were especially unique and fun, and the live music for Gospel Brunch was exceptional. Highly recommended!

                                                    The ambiance was great and wait staff very pleased, but the food lacked flavor and was cold.

                                                    This is the first time I've been to red rooster and it was a great experience. We went for brunch. The avocado toast was the best I've ever had, and there was a lot of attention to detail. The deviled eggs were delicious with a hint of spice. The cornbread was a little sweet for me, but moist and delicious. The service was impeccable!

                                                    A gem in Overtown, and a favorite lunch spot for me with unique and very tasty offerings. Crispy bird sandwich and cornbread are among my many favorites, but there isn’t a thing I haven’t really enjoyed.

                                                    We had the best time! Our server, DEZ, did everything perfectly somehow. What a surprise to get service like this in MIAMI. She even took us on a tour….and we saw the lounge! It’s beyond & a time travel! Food great! Dj Great! The building has been stunningly restored & modernized…. It has a real energy ! A real destination that I’m so glad we have in Miami.

                                                    It all depends on what you like- the menu is more about the presentation of the food not so much of the taste- so your new coming diners review the menu online before visiting!!

                                                    I was celebrating my birthday and upon completing the main course, we were immediately brought the check to close out. I was not even offered dessert which would have been nice considering I was out for my birthday. The host was very friendly and attentive in helping us get water or the proper silver for our food. Our serve started off strong and quickly declined in service.

                                                    Overall good experience. Food could be more though given the price.
