Rooster's Wood-fired Kitchen - Uptown
- Open Now
Amazing food across the board! My wife and I were looking for a place to eat while visiting the Queen City. We walked into Roosters and never looked back. We actually made reservations for the second night also! All the employees were extremely professional and worked together as a team like clock work, performing flawlessly! Very seldom seen anymore! Of course the management has a lot to do with the employees being happy and satisfied with their work/performance! The manager was very gracious, professional, and a man of integrity with a super focus on customer satisfaction! We will be returning soon to enjoy more of the best food in Charlotte! Thank you Mike and team for making our week the best ever! Yall are amazing at delivering the best food in the region, which is second to none! Completely Satisfied Customers
Excellent food but all the staff seemed cranky. The hostess got us a table but said she needed it back by 6. Kinda set a rude tone. We asked the person that brought us bread what was good and he named a couple things he saw come out but we needed to ask our server. The server wasnt a real ball of sunshine either. The calamari was excellent as well as the roasted chicken pizza. Was hot and came out fairly quick. They also make a mean wood fired old fashion. Pricey and rude but good food. Only go if convenient.
If you're looking for a wood-fired kitchen restaurant in the Uptown area, then this is one to check out. The food was good with nice (mild) flavors. They have a large wine and beer selection. The environment is adult casual. The staff was friendly. Note: Google says this is a southern comfort food restaurant, but I'd more call it a high-end American restaurant with a "melting pot" inspired menu cooked on a wood fired grill. We had the pizza and salmon and you could definitely taste the grill flavors. Pro Tip: They have an upstairs and downstairs area. If you're going on a busy night, you'll want to make reservations. We were a walk in and the downstairs area is "community seating" meaning you may share a table with others. I gave it four stars, because it was a good overall experience, but not have to go back.
We had such a great experience here! After walking around uptown for hours and finding every restaurant was closed we were so happy to find Roosters was open. But we were even more happy with the service and the food! Amazing menu and the service was phenomenal! Highly recommend this place! We will be back!
The food was excellent. Staff was pretty good. The downside here was that I reserved a table for six at about the worst possible time. Reserving at 7PM, even days in advance, does no good when all the patrons are sitting there waiting to go next door to their performance that starts at 7:30PM. So even though we got there 45 minutes early for our reservation, we had to wait until about 7:20PM to be seated. All the food was great and different. A party of five can probably get out of here for around $150 (as of June 2022).
