    I was invited by friends who raved about the place. They had eaten there many times before. My first impression was that the ambiance was ok, nice even. The entertainment was loud and the singer, though talented, was literally singing behind me....loudly. So much for conversation. The service was not great. The food....let's just say I've had better food at a diner. I had the goat cheese omelet which was sub par. I could only stomach about 1/3 of it. The best thing about the place is the cornbread which is very good. In the end we were sitting awkwardly with 3 strangers because that's just how they seat ppl here. Also we tried to add one more to our group and were told that we could not add anyone else to our party. Check please!

    Not worth it!

    So disappointing. Bland, oily, zero flavor. So not worth the journey. Red ceasar could have been from the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday. Better fried chicken from a diner. Save your money and time and go elsewhere!

    Not worth the trek

    Went to Marcus Samuelsson's place in Harlem for lunch, not worth it. Small portions. For $17.00 had meatball hero with parmesan frites. The frites divine, the meatballs tiny, cold and had no taste. My husband had five grilled medium shrimp with dirty rice, and a piece of sauteed lettuce, nothing special for $24.00 At lunch? We saw the cupcake our neighbors got from the very limited dessert menu and passed on dessert. We tasted our meal while sitting at a crowded communal high table, my purse kept sliding off my lap, listening to everybody's conversation and feeling their elbows. It was either that or face a long wait. The locale is very attractive and service efficient.

    Nice atmosphere, okay food

    This is an attractive restaurant with good service. This is the sort of food quality you would expect in a decent diner (if there were still such a thing in NY), but it is nothing more than that. The biscuits and gravy were doughy and too salty. The salad was decent. Coffee and cupcake were pretty good.

    Expensive for small portions

    The food was good but not amazing and it was extremely expensive for lunch and the portions were almost insulting. The crab cakes were the size of a slider seriously? And the shrimp and dirty rice barely filled me up and I'm a woman. My poor date he probably had to go home and eat again bc his crab cakes were so small. Don't go if you actually want to be full for your money!

    Wish it had been better

    Could not find Restauarnt Week menu anywhere but decided to risk it. Turned out the choices were so limited we ordered from the regular menu. Tomato salad was good. Everything else was just meh and over-priced: $19 for our iced teas - $4.75 a pop and no free refill. Service and atmosphere really nice but definitely not worth the trip uptown. Have a drink here but eat in one of the many great places in Harlem.

    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.
