    Not recommended

    Let me start off by saying Red Rooster is wonderful for people watching. However, if seeing a bunch of hip folks is not your primary interest when patronizing a restaurant...in other words, if you want to actually ENJOY your food, this is not the place for you. $21 for two small crab cakes? One would think that such a price would mean that they are delicious. They are just okay. $28 for berbere chicken? Save yourself some grief and go somewhere else. The mac and greens were cold and barely edible. The french fries are very good. Just pray they come to your table hot because we ordered two servings and they came barely room temperature. So we paid a lot of money for food that would not even qualify as mediocre. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind paying a lot of money. My senses are disturbed and my intelligence is insulted when I pay a lot for crap. Really. I live in the neighborhood and I have been here a number of times. I have yet to enjoy any meal. And I really want to say that the food is good, but I can't. Anyone who says the food is good either has no taste buds or they have stars in their eyes because they are eating at the establishment of the great Marcus S. That said, the staff were very welcoming, kind and accommodating. This didn't make up for the hour long wait we were forced to endure before our entrees arrived.

    I expected so much before I went based on reviews I had read. The atmosphere and the music were fabluous but that is about it! You would think they went to get the eggs from the hen house that is how long it took. The food was nothing special and was a little on the pricey side.

    Very good

    We started with a couple "snacks" and both were a good size and tasty. The entrees were also very good. The atmosphere was great and very lively for a wed. night without being too noisy. I think prices were slightly high but not outrageous based on the food quality and decor. Will return.

    Great food! Lovely atmosphere

    My food was great. I had the helga meatballs. Service was quick and friendly. Very attentive staff. I really enjoyed my meal.

    Please learn to season the food!

    As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by friendly staff and there was a great, diverse crowd at the bar. The cornbread totally rocks although the tomato jam was a bit watery and lacking in flavor. Also lacking in flavor were the side of pickles which were not actually pickled or seasoned at all; the yardbird which had a nice crunch but also no seasoning or flavor except for its side of pickles and hot sauce which were the saving grace of the dish; the cowpeas also had no seasoning or flavor and sadly, there was not even a hint of truffles in the truffle fries, although they were well seasoned. At these prices, the kitchen needs to learn how to season the food properly. Oh, and the market salad had so little dressing that three of us had to ask for more dressing on the side. We want to come back. We like this place and we like the vibe, we just need to like the food.

    Easter Brunch

    I have just enjoyed an enjoyable Easter Brunch at the Red Rooster. The place was packed and two deep at the bar. I was waiting for the party of nine and the hostess showed me to a place at the bar. My party came in and we were seated immediately. The atmosphere was friendly and lively which was partly responsible by the live music. The fare is nouveau cuisine and very good. All and all we enjoyed ourselves and left with good vibes. I will definitely go back.

    The upshot: if you are going to charge based on your reputation, you'd better cook to meet expectations. There were certain parts of the meal that were perfect. The pickles that accompany the fried chicken, the marrow that comes with the steak, the chocolate malt tart with red velvet ice cream (be still, my heart). But the chicken ("yard bird") itself? Bland. The side of pickles was underpickled. Little things that, on a menu that spare (and, especially for the neighborhood, $$$), should be sparkling and spot-on. The atmosphere is beautiful and charming. The people are pretty. The service was great. If I'm going to spend that kind of money, the food needs to be better.
