Meeting old friends in Calgary & wanted a good place to eat & have a visit. My girlfriend suggested this restaurant & it was perfect. It is located in an old house in Inglewwood just before you cross the bridge to the zoo. We ordered drinks & between the six of us managed to all order most of the entrees.... More

I recently had the great pleasure of dining at Rouge for a special occasion with friends. Even though I have lived in Calgary for nearly a decade I had only visited the restaurant once previously, many years prior, and therefore quite excited about returning. We were seated outside overlooking the green and lush garden on a patio that was intimate... More

I made reservations for dinner at Rouge a month in advance - getting in at 7:00 on a Friday may require patience, but I promise - it is worth the wait. Housed in a character home in Inglewood, Rouge comprises sitting rooms and sun rooms and living rooms turned into intimate dinning rooms - our room had only three tables,... More

This is one restaurant where the staff really try their best to exceed expectations! If you like fresh ingredients cooked to perfection this is the place for you.

We just got married at Rouge and the experience was quite simply perfect. The setting (we got married in the garden) the food and the attentive and friendly staff were fantastic. All the guests were commenting on what a seamless evening it was. I can't imagine it going better. Rene the manager was extremely helpful and patient with any organizational... More

Rouge is an amazing restaurant. The food is amazing - everything tastes delicious. The waiters are knowledgeable and so friendly and the ambience is lovely. Allergies were dealt with without any fuss. We save Rouge for our special dinners. Love it!

Rouge is a popular restaurant in Calgary. We had heard about it from several people so decided to try it out. The restaurant is near the river and the guests were seated in a lovely garden setting outside. While the location was pleasant - the mosquitoes were enough of a problem to mar the pleasure of being outdoors. I would... More

My wife and I have dined at Rouge perhaps more than a dozen times over the last 8years or so. What has happened? The service was very poor...our wine was left empty, wrong cutlery, wrong food etc. the food was poor at best...steak was tough, sauce on the lamb was bitter. Is there a new chef? Oh well....all things come... More

The food is definetly good but for the price, very small portions though. There are better and less pretentious places to spend my money. The building and informative staff are the best part about this place. It is in a beautiful location and the old building has a ton of history and great ambience. I most likely would not go... More

We were here celebrating a special birthday -- so thought we would opt for the Chef's Table. This involves 6 courses of 'surprise' plates. We have had this option at other restaurants and have always enjoyed the new and interesting flavours and tastes that have been provided. In this case we did have a few very good plates and a...
