We had the chefs special with premium wine pairing and it was one of the best memories we have of going to a restaurant. Service was amazing as was the food.

We went here for my wife's landmark birthday. As soon as we entered, I knew we had made the right choice. The service was excellent, especially the wine recommended by the waiter. The food was done to perfection. And the desserts were very rich. This restaurant is in a house in a residential neighborhood. Parking may be an issue, though... More

We enjoyed the outstanding Rouge food last night. The wine selection was impressive as always. What was disappointing was the service. Rouge competes in an elite space and with that you expect service at that level. We ordered a second bottle of wine as we finished our first course. The bottle didn't arrive until we were half done our mains.... More

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

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
