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.

Business lunch

There were 10 of us. Some of us got the express lunch ($25) which consisted of a soup or salad, duck confit thigh, and chocolate mint cake. Service was prompt and professional. The food was excellent. The other items on the menu looked good too. Hope to return soon.

I was here for a corporate function recently, and we had the upper level to ourselves coupled with a personalized menu. The manager and chef introduced the meal and facility to us, and we had wait staff to take care of us. I could go on for quite some time about this restaurant, but I will say just this: This...

My husband and I came here for dinner with our daughter and son-in-law, who had been here before. We were 30 minutes late for our reservation due to being stuck in traffic, but it was no problem. We were seated promptly, and given our menus right away. It was difficult to choose the meal, because the selection covered a lot... More

We went to this place one Saturday night for a dinner, no special occasion, just wanted to try out a new place. Everything from the atmosphere to service and food was great, no complaints. It's hard to find a place in Calgary where people are nicely dressed and the interior is modern and welcoming. This restaurant had it all plus... More

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.

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.

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.

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
