Great garden restaurant

Great intimate location with food on the patio overlooking the home grown garden greens. Rabbit dish was sublime. Great touch if quality across whole meal.

My husband and I treated ourselves to a recent evening at Rouge for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had been there a few years ago and it was in every respect a memorable experience. We were unfortunately not as smitten this time around. No question that Rouge comes with many accolades and it has a wonderful ambience, particularly seated outdoors... More

I have been to over 50 countries but this restaurant is one of my favourites. With the innovative menu and amazing flavours, one can experience a truly gastronomic high while eating here. Tucked in a quiet street in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Calgary, the ambience is simply amazing. Be prepared to open your wallet but you will... More

We lived in a lot of great restaurant cities before moving to Calgary, including San Francisco, New York, and London. Rouge can hold its own against the competition from any of these cities. Great service, excellent, creative food, and a pleasant room. Totally unexpected and a wonderful surprise. Well worth a visit if you're in Calgary.

Very enjoyable dinner for two, great service, nice and bright, lots of room, quaint and private. Wine menu by the glass had a decent selection. Lots of game meat on the menu. Very original combinations of starters and salads. Oysters from New Brunswick were sweet with a diced cucumber topping. We had the tuna and halibut as the main. As... More

Have visited Rouge a few times for a special dinner but this was my first visit for lunch. It was a warm spring day so we sat on the patio enjoying a view of the garden (where very fresh ingredients are picked). The service was excellent and we ordered a trio of dishes, each wonderfully prepared. We shared a couple... More

As they say, you get what you pay for. Unfortunately this isn't always the case in restaurants, where often you will pay a lot for nothing special. At Rouge you get everything and more. The food is exquisite. I highly recommend the pairing but a la carte is also incredible. Their desserts are maybe not quite as good but that's... More

I read that this resto was once on the San Pellegrino World's Best list, so I wanted to give it a try even though I was alone. It was a great evening from start to finish, and I enjoyed both the fine and creative cuisine and the warm service.
