There's only two restaurants that I would consider to be 5/5 and this is one of them. We had the chef's tasters menu. Everything about this place wowed us. I like the old building with the small rooms, makes it easy to have a conversation with your company. The food is awesome, and the service matches. The wine pairing's with... More

Excellent food for the four of us. Four different dishes, four excellent meals. Two had desserts and enjoyed them. Service was good, but somewhat on the slow side; however the server did apologize for it.

We went to Rouge having received a gift certificate on February 25th/2017. It was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Having previewed reviews prior to going we were laughing wondering if such reviews had been written by the restaurant themselves. After the meal we realize the reviews were not exaggerated. The servers are friendly and entertaining... More

Lovely, lovely place! Chose the Tasting menu and was very pleased. The range of tastes from the caviar, foie gras and beef cheek to the varied wine and spirits menu was really wonderful. We went for the first time to celebrate our anniversary and loved the ambiance. We sat in the front window of the beautiful old, restored house under... More

It was so good to return to Rouge as it had been a few years since we'd been there. Love the ambience of this heritage home. Like the fact that they have different rooms to be seated in and they are never crowded. Staff is excellent, friendly and attentive. The food we had was well prepared and presented. There is...

Well sadly I went to what I thought was one of the best restaurants in Calgary.. I've been multiple times, this time I was sadly disappointed. My must have extremely dry martini was returned twice, I couldn't return a third time, but I wanted to O.o My DRY martini was sweet. The food was hit and miss, we had the... More

We've been to Rouge twice. Amazing ambience in a sweet historic former home in Inglewood. The servers are top notch! Whether you're seated inside or out, it's comfortable with good spacing between tables. I would definitely recommend sitting outside during the summer as the patio is very romantic. My only complaint is that the food wasn't as top notch the... More

We celebrated a birthday with the chefs tasting menu here. Everything was good but unfortunately nothing was excellent. At a restaurant like this I always expect a little more of an experience. For example... The service was pleasant and everyone was attentive to our drink needs but never once brushed the crumbs from the table. The food was good but... More

5 star European style service with a French flair to the food. The wine list is extensive, the menu is somewhat small (just a handful of items) but the food is full of flavour. It was a nice change to have "proper" service by a waiter who "knew" the menu and the food, and how it was prepared. A bit... More
