    Jazz was great but it was SO noisy. Can we have a separate quieter section for just dining? Or play jazz in the bar area? It was impossible to have a conversation. Also, we feel the food has gone downhill in the past years. Service was great and friendly!

    Red Rooster HarlemResponded 1 day agoDear Savita, We appreciate your being our guest. It is visible that you have dined with us on several occasions, and we want to thank you for your support. The points you raised on areas of improvement will not go unnoticed, and we are grateful you cared enough about our restaurant to share them with us. Trust that enhancements will be made based on the information you have provided. We hope you will join us again and see how we have improved, thanks to you. Warmly, The Red Rooster Harlem Team

    I hadn’t seen my friend for 14 years, she left the service while we were still in the middle east and our units has been looking for her whereabouts and welfare for some time since. She came down from the Bronx and chose Red Rooster and got caught up on life over chicken and waffles.

    Red Rooster HarlemResponded 1 day agoThank you for your service, and we are honored that you chose Red Rooster Harlem for your long-awaited reunion. Chicken and waffles - great choice! We think that menu selection is the perfect meal to enjoy while catching up on life.

    The food is wonderful, ambiance fun, and people thoughtful and friendly. The three stars is due to the noise level. It was simple too loud to converse or hear the DJ. Outside seating could be better.

    Red Rooster was recommended to us and we were excited to try it. The fried chicken was the most disappointing- overcooked and hard to eat. The mashed potatoes were nothing special and almost tasteless. The deviled eggs were the saving grace, tasty and well presented.

    Hello, it was a good friend’s birthday and we ordered a pasta that was supposed to consist of lobster , lump crab meat & shrimp. When the dish arrived there was only shrimp throughout both plates . So I summoned our server whom was a lovely fellow that attempted to rectify the issue telling us that he’d return with a " hook up" however he returned with a gravy dish that had some new sauce with a couple of decent pieces of crab and some lobster unfortunately our pasta had grown cold and the sauce only turned our dishes into a room temperature soup that I just did not enjoy & the Birthday girl didn’t eat it . Everything service wise was good!

    We all ordered a little something different. The food was amazing! Fun atmosphere. Make sure you make a reservation or you will wait. They have Jazz only on Sundays The macaroni and Collard greens was really good. I would never thought to put those two items together. Ask for Joshua he is amazing. We spent $211 for 3 people with one alcoholic drink and two appetizers no desserts to give you a price point

    This was our first time but not our last. We attended the Sunday Gospel Brunch and it was a birthday celebration as well. We could not have been more satisfied. The food portions were just right, the music and atmosphere were amazing and we had a blast. Joshua was our server for the afternoon and that brother deserves a raise. We didn't have to ask for anything twice and he kept our drinks full. He was awesome!
