    Came with three other ladies, we all tried something different and really enjoyed our food. Did not feel rushed. Location is good, parking for two hours on Whyte Ave $2 for 2 hours on a Saturday. Will return and try lunch next time.

    I’ve been to Rooster 3 times now and the food is always so good. However the service is horrible. Waitress spilled coffee on my husbands phone and all had spilled all over both cups and gave a quick sorry and walked away, couldn’t be bothered to give napkins or anything. She never came back to check up on us or acted as if she cared we were there. Unfortunately it will prevent me from going there for special occasions as it was a birthday brunch and wasn’t pleasant at all

    Went for the first time for a family brunch. The best!!! Food was fabulous, the wait staff were so accommodating and lovely. Also, just loved the vibe - very cool place. Would highly recommend to others. I will definitely be back. Oh and the gluten-free bread tasted like bread...yay!!!!

    Found restaurant was very noisy. Conversation was difficult at times. Ordered standard breakfast with over easy eggs. Found the whites of the eggs still runny. A little undercooked for my taste but did not complain. Two others with me had great meals and enyoyed it.

    Service was super slow, over an hour for our food after ordered. Cold bagel not toasted with poached egg...and server said it’s supposed to server this way unless you asked the bagel to be toasted...the worst soggy bagel I tried ever.

    I went here for brunch over the weekend and as ownership had changed, I was optimistic. However, it took quite a few minutes for anyone to come over and take even drink orders after we sat down. Once our order was taken, the food came fairly quickly but one person in my party ordered eggs a certain way and it was not even close to what she requested. When brought up to the server, a side plate was brought for her to scrape the eggs off, but were left on the table. Not very professional. And it seemed like we had better service once we had paid our bills... I wouldn't go back here.

    Went on a Sunday morning for brunch. I had the rooster Benedict that was very good. The hollandaise sauce had perfect amount of dill and the eggs were poached to perfection and smoked salmon was delicious. It was very busy and so loud it was difficult to converse at the table.

    It took almost an hour for what was a very good corned beef sandwich and a plate of eggs. It was not very busy and the wait made little sense. The food was good but the wait was not.

    A quiet Sunday for brunch at Rooster, but there is a lot going on this weekend. Actually enjoyed quiet.....food was excellent. Breakfast bagel is so yummy and we tried the cinnamon bun waffles, equally as delicious. Worth the visit always.

    Quick service and friendly staff. My only complaint would be that if you have a large appetite that you might leave hungry. Also, they don't give you jam, it's an up charge.

    The food was really good, my eggs were perfectly soft and the brisket was tender and the biscuit my benedict came on was like a cloud! The whole meal was excellent for everyone. Service, however, left things to be desired. The server only brought out waters for half the party, even though we all ordered some and the drinks often stayed empty for a while. One person's food arrived significantly later than the rest, which I understand happens with freshly prepared foods, but there was no communication of this from the server. It also took about ten minutes for the server to check if everything was okay after the food arrived. None of these were big deals, but did dampen the experience and it would be nice if the service matched the quality of the food. I would definitely recommend the place for the food, but not without warning about the hit and miss service.
