    Just had dinner at the bar, I thought the service was fine, nice bartenders so can't echo those comments. I had very high hopes after reading adam platt/sam sifton reviews but food was underseasoned/bland.

    Much Ado about Nothing

    The food was bland, the waitress unconcerened and uninformed about what the menu said. party of 6 and noone enjoyed their meal. The best part of our meal was the drinks. I am a new yorker and so I was not surprised by the pricing, however the restauarnt does not provide quality food for the price. Atmosphere was nice. Overrated and will not return.

    We can take reservations, we just can't honor reservations

    The tip-off should have been that no one called us the day of our reservation to confirm our table for three. When we arrived at 8:00 and slithered through the crowd to the maitre d's post, he told us they were running "a little late". When we asked how long the delay would be, he off-handedly said, "A half hour or so. Just wait at the bar." We asked if this happened every evening and, with an arrogant smirk, said that was indeed the case. We left, never to return, and had a lovely dinner next door.

    They must read their reviews!

    Friends and I lunched at Red Rooster yesterday. Reading the reviewer complaints about service, I am mystefied (thus the title of this review): our service was, throughout, the best part of our experience. The hostess was warm and friendly, and seated us immediately. And our waitress was also sweet and solicitous, plus informative. The food is more of a mixed bag. Our appetizers were uniformly outstanding: the spinach and crab soup with citrus overtones (sorrel?) was marvelous -- thick and creamy with some crispy greens and tiny cubes of cantaloupe for texture. The lobster salad made me want to cry: simply fabulous flavors (including smoked bacon) and a very generous amount of lobster. The mains were less consistent. The crust on my fried chicken was a little too dark, and the mace gravy added an odd Indian note that was not particularly welcome. Two of my companions were equally lukewarm about their entrees (blackened catfish and gravlax). But the friend who ordered the lamb and sweet potato hash was very pleased. The atmosphere is pleasant, with comfortable chairs and a relatively low noise level. In the end, I would go back, and probably order only apps!

    Not good

    Food is mediocre. Service is just poor. The bloody mary came with an almost raw shrimp (wtf???) on it and without a straw or a napkin to put the shrimp tail on. I awkwardly had to hold onto the shrimp until I could finally get the bartender's attention. We weren't told up front that much of the menu was not available, and it was annoying to have to go through several entree choices until I selected one that was available. When the food finally came, we didn't have place settings, salt/pepper, etc. All the food looked very good, but it was all very bland.

    Very disappointed

    The food is overpriced and not enough for the money! I ordered the crabcakes which were very good but cold. My boyfriend ordered the Blackened Catfish which was horrible! It was not seasoned and undercooked. The portion was not enough for my 12 year old to eat. It was served over about a spoonful of Black eyed peas. We received a complimentary beer which was ok and dessert which consisted of Fried sweet potato doughnuts, not tasty at all, lemon sorbet, yuk! and the only thing that was pretty tasty was the yogurt whipped creme. Had to go home and eat at 3AM in the morning because we were still hungry! The only thing I liked about the place was the atmosphere. We were served at the bar because there is a 90 minute wait for walk ins and a 3 month wait for reservations, what a joke! It is not all that! Would not go back again!

    A RED Disaster!

    Sunday brunch for the four of us can only be described as a disaster. Staff was banging into each other, or just wandering around, having no idea what they were doing. We waited for 20 minutes for our cups of tea, served in one single cup, not even half-full. We returned it, and waited another 15 minutes to get another cup. I have never seen tea served that way. where are the metal containers, holding hot water and a tea bag, for at least 2-3 cups? Each cup was $3.75. Are they kidding? Shrimp and grits was watery and served only with a fork. Are they kidding? Donut holes were supposed to be served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Vanilla ice cream was a hard brick of lemon sorbet, and the whipped cream was laced with bourbon, and the waitress had no idea that the whipped cream had alcohol in it, and the ice cream was not ice cream at all. The bill for brunch for four people was over $100. Gospel singers were so loud that I couldn't even hear and talk to my friend. It's the emperor's new clothes. Are they kidding?
