Went for Sunday gospel brunch with my parents when they visited London. The overall experience was a bit disappointing. We waited for over 15 minutes for our table (we were told that the delay was because the previous group was taking ages to pay, but that's not our problem). As a result, we were seated only after the singers started singing. By the time we properly settled in (sat down, took off our coats, got water and ordered food), the singing was over. That's despite the fact that I had indicated in my booking that we are going to celebrate my mum's birthday. Other than that, our waiter was friendly (although she brought us wrong drinks, she was quick and happy to replace them with the correct order), the food was delicious and the ambiance was very nice/lively. I came here a year ago and loved the experience, so I was a bit disappointed with the delay/seating today. I might give it another try in a few months but probably won't be bringing my guests again.
Being originally from the southern USA, I was really looking forward to this. The menu items looked good but seriously lacked flavor (grits tasted a bit like mashed potatoes). Also, a few items were very poorly executed (chicken tenders that were 90% breading), with a load of excuses made by staff regarding this. I've been to the New York location and loved it. I wouldn't go back to this one though. The Gospel House Band was definitely the best part of the meal!
Sweet, friendly, attentive service with great local personality. The room is buzzing, with a good soundtrack. The food was delicious; the ingredients showed quality and the flavors popped in a unique way. Not your typical southern fried chicken. We loved it, and thought our dinner was a steal for the price. Cocktails are a little sweet; you might want to call your own.
Gospel brunch fantastic! The choir was incredible! Food ok! Had the bird royale feast. Liked the chicken and the mac n greens. Not the bread and cabbage.
Staff communication could be better, the choir was amazing. Generally good service.
We went to Gospel brunch and it was brilliant. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and the singing was really fun. At the end we agreed it was the best brunch we had ever had. We will definitely be going back and telling all our friends.
Have already told so many people to go to red rooster! The food was great and the waitress who served us (Chrystal) was so lovely, very attentive and charismatic!
Went to the House Gospel Choir lunch on Sunday and it was absolutely phenomenal! Only wish they went longer and that's testament to how fun they are.
The food was absolutely glorious. The brussel sprout salad and (obviously) the fried chicken are delicious. We had a coeliac in the party and she had the Lennox burger on gluten free bread and couldn't stop talking about how great it was.
Definitely recommend, especially a Sunday if you're looking for something different on a Sunday.
So much fun! The atmosphere is great, the choir is OUTSTANDING and the food is very good, but the service is a bit lacking. While the wait staff is very nice and accomodating, they weren't very attentive. Overall the experience is incredible and so much fun!
loved the decor, the ambience and the fospel choir
The service was terrible, the food was poor and expensive
Just brilliant from the food to the live music the atmosphere 10 out of 10!!!
We were sitted at a large 8-person table right next to the speakers. It was very hard to have a conversation with the heavy music blasting from the music. The waiter was very friendly but often took him too long to reach our table. Food was good and everyone had a good time.
Awesome vibe. Great live music. And the food was excellent too. Definitely returning!
Booked weeks in advance but was kept waiting 40 mins past our booking time for a table, and told we weren’t allowed to stand at the bar. Then we were squeezed onto a bar seat rather than a table, which didn’t have enough room to eat. Complained and was moved to a “proper” table but can’t understand why they didn’t do that in the first place. The wine we wanted to order was sold out, as was dessert - pretty rubbish when the menu is so small.
The choir is fabulous but only performed 3 songs and the lead singer seemed angry, telling us to “leave our chicken and stand up to dance” - by that point we were starving so eating took priority. Perhaps he was as sick of the place as we were. All in all a terrible experience and very overpriced, don’t recommend.
Superb food, great friendly service and delicious cocktails. Overall a great experience
Gospel brunch... music and energy awesome! Great value & we'll return.
Attended the Gospel Brunch for the first time on Sunday 28th September. It was a great atmosphere and an all around great time. The food was good, having lived in the USA for several years and having had several dining experiences with southern US cuisine, it was great and in some respects, the menu was authentic or at least a good copy. If you have never had southern food before, the food here is a great introduction.
Love this brunch with the gospel choir. Fab Sunday fun and great food.
perfect moment, perfect food, perfect singer, perfect restaurant.
Lighting was too low. My friend had to use the light on her phone to read the menu.
The tartar was not fresh, smelled and tasted sour and the meat was definately not fresh. Complained but the restaurant manager said we were wrong and insisted that it was fresh even if this was clearly not the case. He claimed the herbs used was causing the smell and taste!!!??? Did however let us have a replacement dish.
This was my first visit to Red Rooster but it won’t be the last. I work in NYC and will definitely visit the Harlem location.
had a dinner at Tuesday night, food was lovely, live music and great people
The entertainment was incredible and I absolutely loved it, I took my fiancé there for his birthday and I had one of the best nights
Amazing atmosphere and great service. Would definitely go back again
Very friendly atmosphere & dishes we ordered were all nice. It seems the deep fried whole chicken is the most popular dish, which we didn’t order, and it comes with a firework stick, very entertaining. Had a live band with uplifting music which was wonderful but if you are there for chat & catch-up, suggest to get a table away from the band as it’s quite loud (but if you like the music, stay close to them & maybe dance!). The only downside was the waitresses keep coming every 5-10min (so many of them!), asking if everything was ok, which interrupted our conversations & got on our nerves. Friendliness is good but it’s too much. Would suggest to watch attentively from distance whether any customers require attention instead. Overall it’s a nice place & good for a birthday party or something.
We had Sunday brunch to coincide with the amazing Gospel Choir. A really enjoyable experience.
Food is average but the choir is fabulous!!!
Great place with live music! Food and jams, best combo ever. The band did a great job entertaining the crowd. Enjoyed it!
Ambiance and food is lovely. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
Have been here a few times now on a Friday and the only negative I have is that it's the same live singer on a Friday and she always sings the same songs. She is a good singer, but would he nice to hear some new material.
Great food and service but boy is the live music LOUD. Impossible to have a conversation, so if you're happy to just make eyes and/or use semaphore, great. Otherwise, ask for a quieter table. The staff were brilliantly accommodating and moved us when it all got a bit too much. A delicious evening though - and I would go again (with my ear trumpet in my handbag).
I loved the set up and staff and the choir. I wasn't too keen on my vegetarian option of sweet potato steak. It was drowned in a very salty sauce and in fact didn't finish it. Overpriced for a sweet potato. But my partner was very happy and we had a fabulous time . I'll come again but won't order the same. I would have loved a fried fish option :)
Great food & atmosphere, highly recommended for a Sunday lunch with fun entertainment
I would recommend it for the jazz and drinks, but unfortunately not the food. I had high expectations here, but the food was extremely salty. I was with three people and none of us were happy with our food. The ambiance is cool and the jazz was great as were the drinks and service.
The House Gospel Brunch is a must go experience. Thoroughly uplifting!
Fab place with a great vibe, live music and good food
Lovely food and ambience however noisy if you want to enjoy a meal and chat
Food and cocktails/drinks took a very long time to arrive but they were both enjoyable
Very helpful and friendly staff
Celebrated wife’s birthday! Excellent food and service! The Tuesday night band was amazing!
