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.

i don't mind this restaurant for a glass of wine in their lounge but the food is still not as good as it needs to be for the price they charge. You can tell they spent allot of money on the decoration.

I went to Rush for my husbands birthday. The decor is beautiful with a great wine list. Lobster pot pie is very tomatoey. Scalloped potatoes are good. Red velvet cake is not so good. Very bland and doughy. I will try them again. Might be just an off night.

Had a business lunch downtown and my associate decided we should try this place. Service was good, but a bit too much hovering over us. I guess when you are not busy at lunch the staff have to do something. Lots of folks comment on the decor; while important it is not what I taste. On to the food. I... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been to without a view. Nice wine list. I had the scallops and short ribs and loved my meal. My husband had the small tenderloin cooked to perfection...lacked a little flavor...but tender. Loved the lemon meringue tart. Service was good.

While being taken here by my fiance for my birthday, this was an excellent choice. Having travelled in over 30 different countries world wide, Fergus was one of the best servers I have ever had. As a professional sommerlier, he was well versed in the entire wine list. He was highly accurate with complementary food and beverages, and made us... More

We passed on our reservations and made our way to the bar area to make some new friends and get a bite to eat. We were early (not used to it staying light until 11PM!!!) as usual compared to the locals and their later dining times and the place was nearly empty and we were thinking oh boy, what have... More

I had a gift card languishing in a drawer so decided to go for lunch. Sat at the bar and was well taken care of. Had the devilled eggs appetizer. Sounds ordinary, but it was totally great presentation and taste. For my main, I had the wagyu beef hamburger. Wow! They actually cooked it the way I wanted -medium rare.... More

We had two birthday celebrations and had been to Rush many years ago and wanted to see the "new and improved" Rush. While they say there is parking available, it is not easy to find. When you do, you have to buzz in to get into the parking (after 5 pm) and then go through quite the maze to get... More

My husband and I were staying 1 night in Calgary and this restaurant, which got very good reviews, was right down the street within walking distance. We first stopped at their bar before heading to our table. My husband ordered a vodka on the rocks. Lots of rocks, very little vodka! Didn't even look like a full shot. My Margarita... More
