    Nice Sunday brunch and great music

    I was immediately impressed when I walked in to Red Rooster for the 1st time today. We had to wait but it was a pleasure to hear the singer and piano player. The food was good (although my hamburger was undercooked - even asking for medium well) and the service very good. The atmosphere is what makes this place very special. I would go back just to hear the music.

    I guess this place is ok if you enjoy waiting for a table an hour after your reservation was made. Or if you feel the need to be seen or to see psudo celebs. I guess people don't go to restaurants for the food anymore. Cause if they did this place would be empty. The food is way to expensive to be this bland. Use some spices they aren't that expensive. Won't be returning. A total waste of time and money.

    Mixed bag

    My spouse & i took our best friend here (his request) for b'day. after trying to get a rez online, i just called. (we had a time constraint). we got a weds nite rez for 9pm. this place is hoppin'! bar packed, restaurant packed. we waited 25 min to be seated. our server was very attentive & had a great sense of humor. drinks were long in arriving, but food followed swiftly. we had 2 pescatarians and 1 vegan at table so our choices were limited, but not disappointing. vegan had market green salad & coconut rice/peas - excellent. friend had striped bass - excellent. i had oysters ( not worth the price) salad & crab cakes-pretty delish. all in all...not a bad meal. would i go back? probably not as DJ was spinning tunes too loud and i have a thing about having to yell to my meal mates over good food.

    I like the look and the feel of the restaurant. the crab cake was so disappointing. I thought it would be fresh crab meat. if it was ever fresh it was so full of filler and over cooked and did not taste like crab. the mac and cheese was good but the salad that goes with the mac and cheese was over salted. My friend had the same level of one dish not good and the second dish was ok. that is why it gets a 2.5 rating.

    The "New Harlem"

    We waited but we were able to get table outside. The hostess would sit "celebs" first. It was a very mixed crowd with people who "wanted to be seen". The crab cakes and corn bread were great. I loved the sweet Shiraz. The yard bird entree was not good. Overall, this a downtown restaurant created for Harlem... I'm not pressed to return.

    Do not go!

    Before I posted my review of Red Rooster I wanted to give Red Rooster the opportunity to respond. I sent this email to Red Rooster: "To whom it may concern: Before I posted the review below I wanted to give you the opportunity to respond. Regards, Courtney "Two friends and I decided to celebrate their birthdays at Red Rooster. Big mistake. After we sat down at our table, I took the server aside and told him that it was my friends' birthdays and asked if he could put candles on the dessert for them. He told me that, "of course he could." Well, when it was time and dessert arrived, this did not happen - not one candle on either of their desserts. To make matters worse, one of my friends got lemon ice cream instead of the vanilla she had asked for. By the time our server, came back she was almost finished with her melting dessert. When told of the mistake, he did not apologize - instead he got angry with us for not saying anything sooner. How could we when our server was no where to be found? Overall the birthday dinner was not a happy one." I received the email below from Red Rooster: "Hello, We apologize in advance for the experience that you had. This matter will be taken seriously and I have forwarded this e-mail to the Red Rooster Magagement Team. Thank You, Red Rooster Harlem Reservations" After this email I never heard from anyone. Their lack of response demonstrates a major lack of customer care. They don't even care enough to spell the word "Management" correctly! I would definitely NOT recommend Red Rooster to anyone.

    All hat and no cattle

    Call it smoke and mirrors or the emperor's new clothes, RR in reality is nothing like it's p.r. Had no trouble getting a table as a walk-in for an early rainy weekday lunch. Waitstaff was charming, if a little inexpert. Ceiling was leaking near our table and water was splashing into a bucket. Still, it seemed like a pleasant place. We were excited to be there after having heard how difficult it was to get in. What a disappointment. The sluggish service would have been bearable if the food was terrific - but no. Except for the delicious cornbread/honey butter/tomato jam app, which was yummy, the food there is attractive but disappointingly bland. Helga's Meatballs were tasteless and the only thing you could taste in the lamb hash was the fried egg. There was no yummy factor whatsoever. We avoided the yardbird because it looked like the chicken pieces thrown away at a better restaurant. The Coffee & Donuts dessert was nothing speccial was, again, bland, bland, bland. We didn't bother to finish it. Some say patrons shouldn't expect a wow factor here, but it's not even a great neighborhood place with delicious, flavorful food. And why not expect a wow factor? There's a celebrity chef, tons of hype, high prices - are we just supposed to expect less because it's in Harlem? In any other part of town, this place would be closed already because it would be judged not a worthy effort by it's celeb chef. Only in the restaurant wasteland of Harlem does RR look good.
