The food was ok, but the service at the table and the lady at the front desk really was unpolite. First it was ok to listen to the music at the bar, then we are told to pay before leaving the table, then they changed...More

We were not satisfied with our visit to Red Rooster. Disappointed in the food and service was bad. The waitress didn’t even let us finish our meal until she took our plates away!

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and super soul food at a mid-level price . I loved the fried chicken and the corn bread. The diners are diverse, dress is casual and the drinks were wonderful.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
