    One of the best dining experiences I have had in NY. Red Rooster definitely lives up to its reputation and it is worth the hassle to get a table and to get up to Harlem.

    To begin with, the setting is fantastic. The place just exudes 1950s Harlem charm. It is even better if you can time your visit to be there when there is live music.

    The food is exceptional. Loved the corn bread, striped bass, and the spiced chocolate cake. The cocktails are also distinctive and very good. The Dillio (peanut infused bourbon, ginger and dill) is unlike anything I've ever had before -- but was very very good.
    More than a restaurant. This place is an experience and draws one of the most diverse crowds I have seen in NY.
    If I were to visit again, I'd definitely plan to spend a little more time in the bar area before / after dinner. A great vibe and great music. Worth visiting on its own.

    For those who worry about safety, don't. The area can get rough a few blocks away but the intersection where Red Rooster is located is well patrolled and their is a subway stop right at the entrance.

    Note: the street is actually now called Lenox Avenue

    Conveniently located right off the subway in Harlem, delicious soul food, fabulous music selection and Chef Marcus Samuelsson came by every table to ask how the food was and was incredibly friendly! I was really impressed with Red Rooster overall!

    Probably the most fun dining experience I have had in New York. Start with the Red Rooster punch. The bartenders are really nice and helpful.
    Don't order the Swedish meatballs. They are bland and not like your typical Swedish meatballs. Instead get the mac and cheese. It is not boring like I thought it would be.
    The sweet potato donuts are a must to end your meal with.

    I love Harlem and if you ever visit, you need to go to Red Rooster. The music is awesome, drinks are great and the atmosphere is great. It is more of an upscale crowd, but if your intimidated of people with money, maybe there are some things that need to change in your life. Anyhow, this place is a great spot to pre-game before you go out for the rest of the night.

    I had the best time here!! I'd been dying to try Red Rooster forever, and I'm so glad I finally did. I came for brunch with girlfriends a few weekends ago, and we left stuffed and satisfied.

    Highlights include the Hearth Baked Mac & Greens (I literally couldn't stop eating my friend's meal... she might've been angry at me...), the Corn Bread, and the Cheddar Grits. Clearly I wasn't in a healthy mood when I got here, ha! Another highlight was the live music - a singer walked around the restaurant serenading tables, which was slightly awkward for us but a lot of fun.

    I'm dying to come back for dinner & the late night music downstairs now... someday!

    Live Music (on Monday) soul, r&b, blues....fantastic!!
    Soul food con contaminazioni scandinave (lo chef nato in Eritrea é vissuto a lungo in Svezia). Ottimo servizio, carta dei vini ben fornita.Cocktail perfetti al bar.

    It's really expensive, but worth the experience. The burger and meatballs on the brunch/lunch menu are mouth watering. Anything on the dinner menu is a must. The scene is super trendy and you can often spot celebrities.

    I wouldn’t travel all the way up to Harlem just for Red Rooster, but if you happen to be near the area, this is some finger lickin’ soul food. All the staples you’d expect, from cornbread to catfish, and lots of surprises sprinkled in.

    Arguably one of the best soul food dish out there. To have a complete experience of harlems history and culture, you would better come over here and try out one on NYC's best soul food restaurants. This way you will get to know the real cuisine, loved by the harlem community for years.

    Red Rooster is another restaurant that serves primarily to local Manhattanites. You won't see too many tourists traversing their way through Harlem, though if they tried this soul food, it would certainly be harder to get a table here!
