I really liked my dining experience at Rouge. The vibe was great and my server was AWESOME! My server had blonde hair and tattoos she also was really friendly. She also helped me pick new drinks for us to try with dinner. I tried a Rouge burger at Burger Brawl at XFINITY Live earlier this year and I was disappointed... More

An ideal spot for a quiet Sunday brunch. The menu was different and beautifully crafted. The wait staff were excellent and very helpful. The location was great for a Sunday stroll.

It's really sad for me because Rouge used to be one of my favorite places. This was before I knew of Yelp so I never reviewed. After my last visit, however, I was left with my blood boiling and vouching to leave a "fair" review. The only reason this review is getting 3 stars is because I added a star... More

I wanted to try the rouge burger on a recent trip to philly to see how it rates as I am a foodie and burgers are my weakness....it is actually very good....the meat blend is great and I added applewood smoked bacon to it. Not the world beater but top 10....my fiance' had eggs Benedict which were good but the... More

Good setting overlooking the square, doll yourself up a bit, as most of the customers look quite smartly dressed. Mixture of cuisines on the menu from quite traditional chicken and mash to oriental duck stir fry.

I´ve been to my share of restaurants in Philly, a city where you can eat very very good food. So I was anxious to see Rouge. I cannot say I was totally disappointed - the place is very charming, with sofas, dim light and candles on the tables. But the food was average, specially if you consider the value. I´ve... More

Ate here on a holiday Monday....they offered a brunch menu, sandwiches, full entrees and sides. You can either eat outside on small tables or inside. It's not a huge place but you don't feel crowded in. The food was good.....hamburger cooked perfectly with onions and cheese. The fries were crunchy and not too salty.......and the tuna sandwich with wasabi was... More

I love Steak Tartare. That being said, Rouge in Rittenhouse offered up one of the best I have ever eaten. Perfectly spiced and delicate on the palate, this was a little plate of heaven. Also enjoyed a perfectly grilled Octopus dish, that might have been even better with a little less Cous Cous....this being an appetizer, it just was overkill... More
