We met our friends at the bar. It was happy hour 4-6pm Hard drinks were not included. Martinis were 5 star. On tap was $3.00(beer). Wine was $5.00. We were told wine was 1/2 price (nothing exotic). We have been there before piano etc. makes great atmosphere. Made reservations for end of month, dinner. Will give follow-up.

My husband loves escargot so we stopped in for a glass of wine and a plate of escargot. It was served piping hot and full of garlic. I had the crab cakes that were also good and they were both served with the crispiest crunchy bread. Crispy on the outside and very soft in the center. I would highly recommend... More

Have been only once but the food was excellent although my wife and I both went online for a look at the menu and decided what we were going to get only to find out the in-house menu doesn't match the online version. They didn't have what we wanted but the substitute was good. they also don't have a piano... More

As a group of four weary long distance travellers, we arrived at Le Rouge without booking on a Wednesday night. Not a good time -- or well, not for us. By contrast, the six-strong birthday party from Aspen, located at the far end of the narrowish room, was definitely enjoying itself. We could tell. Though sadly, only after we'd settled... More

Walked along the Main Street reading menus and chose this one for it's specials chalkboard and very well laid out interior. Seated quickly with menus, and service was excellent. Good food, good wine and we would go again if in area.

We had no idea what to expect in Grand Junction where we were attending a convention. Le Rouge is the real thing. Owned by a Frenchman, the food is right on target and the staff is charming, efficient, responsive, and professional. We were surprised to look out the window and not see Paris! We ate at the bar both times... More

I made a reservation for a team dinner about a month in advance as we were unable to acquire our usual venue when traveling through Grand Junction. Gail worked with me on seating, menu and wine, following up and staying in contact every step of the way. Our table was set very nicely for the 19 of us and ready... More

Very average meal and service. Something in the walk in was imparting a unpleasant taste to butter and vegetables.

I am so glad that we ate at Le Rouge rather than one of the higher rated restaurants in Grand Junction. It is excellent from beginning to end. To begin with, you have a choice of atmosphere, the vibrant bistro-style outdoor seating, the mahogany bar, or the dining room complete with white tablecloths and roses. We chose the latter. To...
