Great for lunch too

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... read 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.

Two friends and I recently went to a fashion show and dinner at Rouge restaurant. The fashion show was organized by a local ladies store. On arrival we all had the option of three dinner choices, I chose the lamb shank as my main and my companions chose the fish option. We each decided on the soup as our starter,... More

My boyfriend and I went here on a double date with another couple and it was everything we heard it would be. The house is gorgeous, but could do with a little colour on the inside. The hostess and our server were very warm and friendly and knowledgable. We never went dry on our drinks, and our courses were perfectly... More

Was my choice for a night out with friends. Beet cured salmon to start. Dinner was excellent. Others equally enjoyed there meals of cod and beef tenderloin. The sevice was some of the best. Meal choices were all explained clearly, from ingrediants to preparation. Portion sizes were perfect. Add in a few cocktails,wine, conversation, laughs and nice atmosphere. Makes a... More

I have ate here 5 times with my fiance. We look forward to visiting Calgary so we can come back to Rouge. I highly recommend the Chefs Tasting Menu. All courses are perfectly paried with wine and you can just sit back and enjoy the evening. You never know what will be coming out next! I have never had the... More

By far the best fine dining I have ever been 'to.... I had Tenderloin for my main course and it was perfectly cooked. Their food serving is perfect, I was surprised.... leaving the place with a full tummy... ^__^ Their Flourless Chocolate Torte is a must try as well... Wine selections are vast and their service is superb. Don't forget... More

Had dinner at Rouge on my way back to Milano where I am based and where restaurant standards are high. Rouge was surprisingly good, right up there. Don't expect a fancy flashy place, expect a warm European like atmosphere and really great great food (I had the duck). Bravo to the chef for the cuisine, bravo or brava to whoever... More
