    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.

    Red ripoff...

    My good sweet lord. Where do I begin? Sticky table. Check. Outdoor seating with tables just a tad too close so I was able to enjoy the full breadth of the water steward's hindquarters at regular intervals. Check. Macaroni and Cheese and GREENS? Really. I don't think I need cheese and collards to have a date. I think they need to be separate because they don't agree with one another. All of the pretentious preening of a fine dining restaurant with absolutely no pay off? CHECK- big time. I live in Harlem. I adore Harlem. My parents are from the South. I'm no slouch in the kitchen, either might I add. I was excited about a new restaurant...one that might actually replace the tired and defeated Sylvia's ...but instead, my senses were assaulted at every turn. Cornbread that was overcooked and tasted like a sweet corn muffin but with a metallic undertone. (Wait, Rosemary's baby...remember the chocolate 'mousse'? uh-oh) Overcooked salmon when I told the waiter- a very snooty in that "I'm sure you've never had long beans before you plebeian" way, that I wanted it medium. He asked me. Oh, yes, he asked me- smug bastard. The salmon was glazed and cooked within an inch of its poor sweet life and wonder of wonders was juuust about to spoil. You know that unmistakable "Hope that's not my fish" smell? Yeah. The "long beans" were actually wax beans and green beans. You know something? I like 'em blanched at the very least. The.Very.Least. Our water steward was very attentive. Since it was about one thousand degrees on our visit, I was thankful. Poor guy. It was his life's work to make me happy and hydrated.He was the one bright spot during the course of our meal. A meal I'd like to forget. I can't forget it, unfortunately because I had a nice case of buyer's remorse about an hour after dining. Let's discuss the fact that the sides were too small to be called sides. I mean, it was doll food. I wrote them a note. I've heard nothing. Here is the kicker: the place was packed with people smiling and enjoying their meals. Who was preparing their meals? We wanted that chef. A fool and her money. Parted. And not on good terms.

    Went on a good night

    Went last night for the 1st time because I like the DJ that was playing music. So the ambiance was nice: music, people, etc. But the A/C was not working properly. On a day of 100 degrees and as crowded as it got like at 7:30pm, the A/C should have been blasting very cold air and my friends and I were sweating. The drinks were great, but I thought our bartender was a bit stressed. They might need an extra bartender. WE had crabcakes and they were delicious. We even asked for more sauce and we got it. Nice! Oh and the bathroom was big and airy, and very clean. Loved that! Can't wait to go back.

    Great first experience

    Surprised by the negative reviews, went to RR for the first time last night, and had an excellent meal. The place is beautiful, and has a very nice buzz to it. Definitely not cheap with $13 cocktails and $30 entrees, but the menu is very appealing, crab cakes, salmon and steak frites particularly good. Service was efficient, staff was friendly. All in all, a very good time and meal

    A huge dissapointment

    Where should I begin? 1. No air condition on a hot evening in June, 2.waiting 30 minutes to be seated after arriving for an early dinner reservation at 5:30pm, 3. and a very unprofessional hostessl. I was eagerly anticipating this evening but left never having been seated or given an apology. In addition, my complaint letter was never responded to. Too bad. My recomendation to Mr. Samuelson is to make sure that his restaurant is running up to his exacting standards, or stop going on TV saying that it's terrific (because it isn't). Until he corrects that glaring problems, i for one will not return.
