Rooster's Wood-Fired Kitchen - Uptown Ratings and Reviews

Food was passable, nothing spectacular. Waitress was pleasant, helpful but she had too many tables (or people) to serve.
Place was noisy which seems to be the new standard in restaurants but we could not carry on a conversation across a small table.
Perhaps just a bad night. We will try them again.

My favorite place to meet up with two precious gems I've worked with years ago and still keep in touch with. Even though the Southpark location is right around the corner from me, and I work from home, always excited to scoot to the uptown location. The three of us always order the same three appetizers (I try to change it up and have dinner) and never disappointed. Absolutely love the food. I just meet another friend at Southpark for dinner vs. just appetizers. My happy place.

Excellent food. The duck and duck breast were very tasty. The pumpkin spice cream was too good for words and the chocolate mousse was excellent too. And the side dishes were tasty and worth the money! Will be back!

My wife and I always dine there when we are in Charlotte - this time we took friends with us who had never been there - they loved it! (as we thought they would). Great atmosphere, great wine list and outstanding food - they haven't disappointed us yet.

First and foremost was our server, Jimmy. Can't say enough about him. Attentive, warm, knowledgable about wines...and on and on. He should be the "poster child" for servers. Food was great if you don't want the hefty price. Had the Brisket Burger and fries which were over the top. Juicy with that "hot-off-the-outdoor grille" taste. Same for the roasted beets. My wife ordered the hangar steak which she loved. However, the $25 price tag is definitely over-priced for what it is. In fact I think our $81 bill (pre-tip) was high for a burger, a small plate of sliced steak, 2 glasses of wine and a side of beets.

My husband and I dined here before attending Saturday night's Charlotte Symphony on September 30, 2016. While Sara, our server, provided very good service and recommended the perfect Pinot noir for my food choices, we were very disappointed in our food. The calamari was too greasy to finish, and my sautéed scallops, while perfectly cooked, were too highly seasoned to enjoy the aioli sauce. Our two sides, the asparagus and the roasted fingerling potatoes, were also too heavily seasoned to compliment my scallops and my husband's duck confit. By the end of our meal, we understood why there was no salt and pepper on the table--we had more than enough spices than necessary. I would visit Roosters again for the professional and friendly staff, but just to have a glass of wine.

Don't go if you are hungry. Portions are micro size. It's the kind that commercials make fun of. Example: Three people in my party ordered Salmon. If you combined all the servings you would half a fish. It's extremely over priced for what you get. Example: $10 for mac and cheese. Plus the menu gives no description on it's items. Example: it does not tell you if the shrimp is grilled, fried, boiled or anything. Therefore we had to ask the server about many of the items. Which brings me to the service. The impression he gave me was that we were a waste of his time. Plus he should have told me that when I ordered one of the appetizers as my meal that the portion was the size of a biscuit and recommend me to choose something else. In conclusion all five of us agreed it was the worst meal for the money we ever ate. All of us regretted going. Plus we were starving when we left and afterwards we went somewhere else to eat.

We did have many options so we mostly chose things to share - meat and cheese plate and vegetables (corn and asparagus). These were excellent. The short ribs were tender but bland. The chicken dish was big enough to share and my wife said it was very good. The service pushed it up to four stars. It was very pricey, so I doubt I will go back.

Previously, I have only eaten lunch at Roosters South Park and loved it. This time, we went to Roosters Uptown for dinner on Saturday night. The food is above average but navigating the menu is hard. Nothing is described. I had to ask about a dozen questions to understand what ingredients were with each dish and how it was prepared. It was way too much work to figure out what to eat. The menu is trying to be trendy and to focus on the main ingredient but not helpful at all. Service was definitely average at best. Beware if you can't do stairs or escalators - dining room is on an upper level and an elevator trip pretty much takes you around the block, but the hostess on the first floor was fabulous and took us on our trip cheerfully.

I would highly recommend it to family, friends or anyone looking for a great meal. Food was over the top good especially the grilled zucchini and squash. Staff was very friendly and made great food and drink suggestions. Overall a great evening for my date and I in the heart of Charlotte at the Epicentre.

Our waiter got tied down with a large group and we were in a hurry to catch a concert. We had driven from Blacksburg, VA (Virginia Tech) for the concert and did not want to miss any of it. We asked another waiter to take our order. He did. We were served. The original waiter got back to us. It was great that the waiters acted as a team and pitched in to help us get to the concert on time. We will return and have already recommended it to another couple.
