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...

Last week, my husband and I celebrated his 50th birthday with 12 guests in an intimate room at Rouge. I had worked with both Andy and Andrew of Rouge who were very professional and knowledgeable. They helped me in every detail of the dinner. We worked on a menu that consisted of some passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour together... More

Had a terrible experience at Rouge last month. They are absolutely not set up for group dining. We were a group of about thirty in a private room. Cocktail service was slow and not up to snuff as staffing was clearly an issue. We enjoy slow dining but forty-five minutes between courses that seemed to come off an assembly line... More

We had the chef tasting menu for a table of 4. The meal was excellent. And service exceptional - prompt, friendly and unobtrusive. It was a bit drafty - we went on a very cold night. The only drawback was the price. It's great for special occasions, but for a family of 4, it's somewhere we can go all the... More

This is my very first visit to this restaurant (didn't know about it until one of my husband friend invite us here). From the very first we parked the car right in front of the restaurant I can feel how nice its going to be. It used to be a resident house that they changed into a fine dining restaurant,... More

We picked Rouge for our New Year's Eve dinner because John Gilchrist in his new "My Favorite Restaurants" book voted Rouge as THE number one restaurant. Well, John was right! Rouge is in a heritage building in Inglewood and from the minute that you drive up to the restaurant you can tell that you are in for a treat. The... More

The food is very good. The service is also. I found the place draft and that took away a bit from the meal. It is on the pricey side, but well worth it.

Three times we have gone to Rouge for the Chef's Tasting Menu with wine pairings and each time it has been outstanding. I am gluten intolerant and the chef does an amazing job at preparing an alternate dish for me. Their gluten free buns are delicious. Each meal is well prepared and presented beautifully. The staff are very knowledgeable about... More

The appetizers were good, had the scallops and the beet salad and both were delicious. Once we got to the entree we were disappointed. My husband had the lamb and found it bland, I had the beef striploin and found it tough. We sat in the main dining room and found that we were too close to the table beside... More

Although pricy, the service, food and wine is amazing. They brought us a free appetizer to try a new dish from the chef, which was a great touch!
