I was incredibly impressed by the service at Red Rooster. A friend and I walked in on a Friday night and in a stroke of great serendipity, they found us some space at a table! Even though we were clearly not big spenders (and were surrounded by folks who likely were) the staff were attentive, organized, and utterly on top of their game. The hostess, our waiter, the runners, and the manager were clearly working together seamlessly. When my dining companion asked about details of food preparation, including what kind of oil the fries were cooked in, our waiter was knowledgeable, respectful, and efficient. He asked pertinent questions that made it clear he was determined to get a great meal on the table that she could enjoy without any worries. It was a delightful experience.

I'd made a reservation for dinner at 8:15. I arrived just before 8:15. I checked my coat--it was a very cold night--and was told there would be a slight wait; they were "behind." I went to the bar where there was a very lively and fun vibe; fun place. But twenty minutes later, after I'd spent a goodly sum at the bar, I checked back in and was told that I needed to be patient, that they were waiting for tables to open up. I told them I was old and cranky and that I was out of there if they didn't have a table in ten minutes. And ten minutes later I retrieved my coat and left, went to an old favorite place in the theater district and had a good, solid hamburger. While I was in the restaurant, about an hour after the original reservation time at The Red Rooster, I got a text from them informing me that my table was ready. Bottom line: I never expect special consideration, but I also don't expect to be mistreated. I did not want to have to stand for an hour for a table that I'd reserved ahead of time, two weeks actually--why bother. The food at the place may be great--I used to love Samuelsson's Aquavit--but it is an incredibly poorly managed restaurant and does not deserve to be recommended to anyone.

3 stars for food, and one extra for the vibe of the place. We had Fried chicken with waffles, Mac and greens with bacon fried in maple syrup, and a dessert I can't remember... We didn't drink much, but it just wasn't a memorable dessert compared to the mains. As we are not familiar with southern US style food we found the menu intriguing, and personally I found it tasty, although my husband proclaimed it 'not bad, but not fantastic'. The vibe of the place is electric and we were thrilled to have stumbled on to this place accidentally.

Went to this restaurant while visiting the Big Apple. The atmosphere was wonderful. The staff was so incredibly nice, friendly and welcoming. The food was exceptional. My friends and I posted every artfully plated item of food we ate on instagram. The plates were beautiful and the desserts mouth watering. The only downside is that I did not get to meet Chef Marcus Samuelsson. If ever in New York again, I will return. Thanks for the great time and exceptional dinning experience!

Went for dinner on a Sunday night. Fried green tomatoes very yummy. I thought the crab cakes were okay. Corn bread was okay - I prefer mine to be a bit more on the crispy side. The Chicken Yard sale was tasty and the mashed potatoes that came with it too. The iced teas are made to order and very good. Atmosphere is fun. There is a large wrap-around bar in the front, and a live jazz band which was great. The kitchen is open in the back, so it can get a bit loud in that area. The staff is friendly and very accommodating.

"I think James Brown is playing at the Apollo." Make a reservation. Otherwise you will be seated at the bar, the "Speakeasy" in the basement, or at one of the communal tables along the wall. Sit ANYWHERE other than the communal tables. You will literally be rubbing elbows with your fellow diners and being subjected to their little quirks and quacks. I was forced to listen to the nasal conversations of my compatriots. Does everyone have adenoids these days or is this some kind of new regional speech pattern? I don't care what it is... it's insufferable. And I also watched this lady remove every piece of fried batter off her Chicken and Waffles. It was sacrilegious. Being a party of 1, I was placed in-between two other parties. Once drinks and appetizers and entrees start coming out, there really isn't space for 6 people at these damn tables. And of course I get the only stool without a back so I ended up sitting on my coat and perching my purse on the top of my feet. *sigh*. But the Fried Yardbird saved the day. And the Starr Punch was pretty good as well. Don't be shy about getting at that Yardbird with both hands. The napkins are nice and thick. Add little dips of the hot sauce for flavor. The Mac & Greens were underwhelming. I kept adding the accompanying paprika to it, all for naught. I was told it was a blend of spices.... it was paprika. Having asked to keep the mashed potatoes off my order since I was getting the Mac side, I would have liked to have seen that reflected in my bill. It was not. The staff is super friendly, but there's really nothing they could do to make dining at those damned communal tables any better.
