Located on a quiet side street in an old converted house, the restaurant offers both inside and outside dining. The food was delicious, the ambiance is nice and the staff is friendly and attentive. If you sit in the main dining room you can watch the action at the grill. There is more seating upstairs and well as a small... More

Signature salad and scallops were very nice; my wife enjoyed the stuffed rainbow trout. Bread ( a critical part of he meal )was first class. Service was very attentive in this BYOB. Only complaint on a insufferably hot evening was the upstairs dinner room was too warm reaching an uncomfortable state; request for cooler temps not successful.

Another wonderful, off-the-charts dinner on Saturday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. Entrees were cooked perfectly. We had pork and ribs - both were extremely tender. Service was extremely attentive and professional. Another special occasion celebration that was perfect.

Excellent food, great service. Meals are pricy but worth it for a special date/day. The restaurant is in an old house which gives it such a great atmosphere. The owner is a flemington native.

I give it a 4.0 rating. Upstairs gets a 3 1/2. It has no ambience. The appetizers are fantastic however the main courses or underwhelming both in presentation and in taste. The servers are OK, it's a hot or cold/ hit or miss with them. You don't have a lot going in Flemington, as far as fine dining so it... More

This establishment is our favorite place to eat within close proximity to our house. The price is a bit above average but worth every dollar. The atmosphere, presentation of the food and the taste are superior! You must make reservations for the weekends. Always an excellent choice!

We tried several dishes. We began with grilled calamari which was grilled with s light cream sauce on top. It was tender and flavorful. We also had the grilled romaine topped with grated Parmesan and topped with a light creamy garlic dressing. It was excellent. Next we had salmon topped with chimichurri sauce. It was cooked perfectly and was excellent.... More

Description
Matt’s Red Rooster Grill is a contemporary American bistro paying homage to a wood fired grill that “brings out the best flavors” of traditional American cuisine, reinvented creatively. A CIA (Hyde Park) graduate, Chef Matt McPherson stays true to his local roots integrating the finest seasonal ingredients, sourced from local family farms & day boat fisherman into his unique dishes. The restored Victorian home provides a relaxed elegant atmosphere to catch up with friends, celebrate special occasions, enjoy a romantic dinner, or impress an important client. As Matt’s creations pamper your taste buds, the staff indulges you with rock star service, the perfect remedy for a long day or week. With two floors, downstairs feeds off the warmth & energy of a bustling open kitchen. Four seats at the Chef's counter let you feel the heat, as you watch Matt & his team from a perch over the grill. Upstairs is away from the bustle while the porch provides relaxed & refreshing outdoor dining.
