It was loud. We made reservations but we were put at a table with random people. I couldn't hear my sister across the table. Three different conversations going on at the same table. Food was just alright.

Last night was an awesome night, had dinner with my son and his girlfriend. We walked in to Latín night, great D J and a live group . It was impossible to resist the desire to dance. However, the music was a touch loud, having conversations was at times difficult. But seeing my favorite chefs was a treat. I wanted... More

Monday nite at the Red Rooster is the day and place in NY City. It's jumping and the band is as good as it gets in a city full of talent. Didn't get to eat but the bar service is good and the vibe pretty cool. Give it a shot 😎

If you're interested in good food that's out of the ordinary you should try this place. It's loud but the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. I have celiac and they were able to prepare what I could eat. Downstairs, there's jazz and that looked like fun.The street outside was lively and filled with people, even on a cold night.

We went here to celebrate our daughter's bday and truly enjoyed every morsel of food! The restaurant had a great vibe and we had great service. The drinks from the bar were made to perfection and no skimping on the pour. We had Obama's short ribs for two and the fried chicken for two. Absolutely recommend the short ribs out... More

I think it is a great place for young people 25 to 40 years of age. Crowded, noisy, full of people, great music, great drinks, fashion, local upscale, crowd watching, boys, girls, definitely a nightly hangout. Good for people watching. Has great music downstairs and sometimes a dancing nightlife. It can be wonderful. I'm not a fan of the food... More

Visited the place for the first time, interesting place, a lot of young and diverse people. The front part is a noisy bar but the back is more quite (relatively). The menu is unique and the appetizers are great, The fish was very good. RSTMN 8/10
