A singular reflection of Alberta's signature hospitality, Rush Ocean Prime's downtown location occupies a large space in what was once Calgary's main post office, a magnificent building modernized. With a new look, new menu, and new attitude, the new Rush relaxes fine dining with a bold, brash and revolutionized offer. Rush aims to surprise guests with inventive globally inspired food from land to sea. Generous portions of steak and seafood are served up alongside sommelier selected wines and handcrafted cocktails. From the attentive service to the open, contemporary space, Rush sets the stage for special every-day encounters - whether it is a coveted spot in the intimate dining room or shared small plates and drinks in the lounge before a game.

Great Restaurant and staff

We had a bit of a celebration so I called and made a reservation. They were very helpful. Our server Fergus was outstanding. I cannot say thank you to him enough.

6 women out for a nice dinner during the big taste. Some of us had the $35 meal, some had the $65 meal. 6 women left the restaurant still hungry. One stopped for a burger on th way home. The difference between the 2 price points was a smaller first course, a piece of bacon and an extra 1" square... More

My husband and I went here for the Big Taste $35.00 menu. What a disaster. The service was way below par and the meal itself not up to the standard of last years Big Taste. The appy was just alright, the steak okay and the dessert disappointing. I could not believe that the waiter did not even ask how we... More

I am forever browsing restaurants in Calgary to see which ones have the best reviews and which ones are going down hill. I came across Rush because of the percentage of people that "like" it. I looked at the pictures of the food and decided to try it. Let me tell you, these were the best beef short ribs I... More

My son suggested we try Rush for dinner last night, and was I ever happy that we did. Totally out of character, I got online before I went and became intrigued. Again, totally out of character, I am going to refute some other people's reviews about this restaurant, before I tell you about our wonderful dining experience. Firstly, this restaurant... More

Took my lovely lady here for a pre-Valentine's dinner and glad we came. Not as busy as it would have been on the day, so very relaxed experience. Our server was very helpful and quick with the water. Rush features seafood and steaks, so after sharing a lovely salad, my partner ordered fish and I had the veal chop. Salad... More

Our company had a lovely lunch with some business associates last week in their private room. There were 15 of us at the lunch so we had a few waiters serving the group. All the waiters were helpful and service minded. We all ordered off their lunch menu and the food came promptly and correctly. They were out of a... More

Just having got to Calgary, I thought I would enjoy a very nice restaurant - picked rush, made a reservation and then found out that families are not permitted. Something about government regulations - kinda funny - as last night I took the family to a brew pub for dinner with no problems with government regulations. I think they should... More

Enjoyed a business dinner I experienced there last week ... appetizers (Caesar Salad) and entrée (6 oz steak) were very good ... wine proposed by sommelier was appropriate and the dessert (Rush Buttercake) was to die for. All in all great meal ... service was also good.

My husband and I were staying at the Fairmont across the street and chose Rush for its proximity and because the menu was extensive but not overwhelming. We shared vegetarian sushi (awesome!) for an appetizer, each ordered a filet with bernaise sauce for our main course and finished with the cheese plate. The food, service, and ambiance were fantastic and... More
