“Entertaining Service Quality Portions and Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have eaten here regularly for a wonderful entertaining meal for the last 4 years. Even though we do not care for the prices and the entree portions and having to order a la cart - we keep going back! My wife loves the wings and mac and cheese and corn. I like the fish and trying several appetizers. We always sit at the corner kitchen seats watching the chefs and the service is always a+.

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

No doubt about it, Rooster's offers a unique dining experience. The restaurant is beautiful, and I really liked being able to look right into the kitchen. I also felt comfortable about the food we ate, as I knew that it was locally grown and raised. Not only was I eating fresh food, I was helping the local economy.
What I didn't like was the menu. It offers no descriptions of anything, not even the size of the steak (which was quite small for the price). However, both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would go back.

“Consistent quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

You can read my old review elsewhere on Trip Advisor. We came here last week for our anniversary. As always the food was top-notch, which is why I finally bumped my rating up to 5 stars, something a Charlotte restaurant rarely gets from me. Yes I had the duck confit again - I tell ya it's tough to get duck consistently right and Rooster's always gets it right. It was all I could do not to the lick the plate. Hubby had the chicken, which he pronounced delicious. Our server suggested we try the homemade duck sausage as an appetizer. I prefer hard Italian-style sausage so was leery, but we caved and tried it. OMG. Wonderful, flavorful, not overly fatty. Once again the corn and beet sides were spot-on. We had wonderful, attentive-but-not-in-your-face service and the noise level was quite acceptable. Of course we'll be back. Make this a date; come with grandma and the kids, come with friends. All are appropriate. Bring lots of money. The a la carte menu adds up quickly.

“Roosters Wood Fired Kitchen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This lively place near South Park has some excellent menu choices, along with a very well chosen wine list to match. As the name implies, most of the menu items are roasted over a wood
fire. The charcuterie sampler, olive sampler cheese plates are excellent, with the meats made on premise. A favorite here is the fennel sausage. Among the main courses, salmon , scallops, & Carolina pork shoulder are all cooked to perfection. Wines from French Mediterranean regions as well as northern Spain are well matched to the fire roasted menu & make for a great value. Many of the beers here are local to North & South Carolina. The beer list could use more draft offerings. This is a great place for small groups & food sharing. I have been here many times & have never been disappointed. A few times each year Roosters sponsors beer or wine pairing dinners. These are wonderful, & held in another room with separate bar & service.
