"We had to wait a little bit to be seated even though we had a reservation on a Saturday night. The food came out SO quickly, which almost made me seem like I was being rushed out of the place. The portions were small and very overpriced. Glad I went for a special occasion but won't be back."

"We came for a special birthday dinner and I was a little nervous because I am vegetarian and I don't drink, but it was awesome. Lots of options for me and no pressure to order from their extensive drinks menu. We drank two bottles of sparkling water and it was lovely. The food itself was very inventive, with unusual but very appealing flavor combinations. Old familiars and new things to try. Really great overall!"

"What an added treat! Marcus Samuelsson walked the room and chatted with diners. The menu was interesting and tasty and filling! The brussel sprouts were my favorite! And the Mac 'n Cheese too! The whole chicken fed 4 with leftovers too."

"Exceptional food all around. Tasty heirloom Cauliflower salad, whole fried chicken dinner for 2, side of cheesy fries and Devils food cake. The chicken is literally fried whole, crispy outside, moist in. Great flavor. Served with amazing Mac and greens, waffles, a huge biscuit, waffles, syrup, hot sauce, white gravy and chicken liver butter. The fries are covered in parm and perfectly fried. There were 3 of us and this was plenty for all. Added bonus Marcus Samuelsson stopped by the table to see how our dinner was. Pretty close to perfection."

"The overall experience at the red rooster was great. We received service immediately, and the food was delivered promptly in a trendy atomosphere. my only issue was I asked if there were any fruity or sweetened drinks other than soda and I was told that ice tea and lemonade were both unsweetened. I think they could make a version that is sweetened and so someone sitting at a table with isnt wasting time trying to flavor their beverage. I opted for distilled water."

"The choices on the prix fixe menu are getting smaller. I use the Restaurant Week to steer friends and/or family to places they may have never consider to eat. I was disappointed that they was nothing on that special menu that my husband could eat because the choices were so limited. He was certainly happy with the burger but since I had bragged out the many choice menu of yesteryear, he was expecting a 3 course meal.
We were happy to meet Chef Marcus while lunching. Our server was outstanding

"Had dinner here with friends, and was impressed. The food was fantastic. Hot chicken and waffles, beautiful cornbread with honey butter, and fantastic cocktails. We happened to be there on a Monday, and the bar scene was surprisingly vibrant. An awesome band was playing, and the crowd was throughouly into it. I really enjoyed it, and will be back again!"

"My friend arrived early for lunch and wanted to wait near the bar area but was told no. I arrived on time but was told by the same person we must wait. Don't expect anyone gracious to seat you...even when you wait 10 minutes after your reservation. That said, once seated the wait staff was wonderful--- very friendly and very knowledgeable. I had the chicken salad, which was like a Cobb salad. It was the BEST I ever had. My friend had the chicken sandwich, which looked absolutely delectable and according to her was fabulous!"

"We went to Red Rooster for lunch as part of Reataurant Week. I was a bit disappointed that fried chicken was not an option. However, the squash salad appetizer and main course of Mac and and cheese were delicious. The salad had the taste of the delicious dressing, but was not swimming in it. The Mac and cheese was among the best I have had, and came with delicious pickled vegetables. Again, very flavorful and no sign of liquid. The portions were very generous. The donut dessert was wonderful too; they were warm! We were full by that time, so we each ate one and took three with us for others to enjoy. Fresh whipped cream and all! Very attentive and friendky waitstaff. We will be back!!"

"We went for dinner on Tuesday night. The bar was mobbed, the noise level was energetic (some would call it very loud). I had to maneuver to find an opening to order our drinks ($14 old fashioned, delicious). Having a few minutes until our reservation, we sat in a little alcove. We sat in the middle of the dining area, ordered another round of drinks, and then had to wait over 15 minutes for them (that seemed absurd, and was discouraging). Skipping appetizers, we then ordered the Harlem Chowder for Two (whole lobster, clams, cod, scallops, shrimps, little potatoes, and arugula in a spicy broth: $78), and the Fried Bird Royale (whole fried chicken, waffles, a really small side of delicious mac and cheese, and small dishes of mace gravy, liver butter and jou jou biscuits). The food was delicious, and the dishes were served on small platforms so we would have enough room on a quite small table. As we ate, Marcus Samuelsson came over to our table, greeted us warmly, shook hands, and talked for a bit; that was a great kick. Overall it was a great experience, and I would recommend it highly (with the proviso that it is expensive, but, what isn't?). We had 7.30 reservations. By eight thirty the crowd thinned out significantly; turned out quite a few people were headed over to the Apollo."
