“Popular lunchtime spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Good for families (including small kids), business meetings, lunch with friends. Staff are helpful, pleasant/friendly and the food is standard CR menu.
Service can be a bit variable.

In warmer weather there's loads of seating outside which is a good suntrap so you can use your lunchtime to pretend you're on the Riviera.

Recommend for breakfast if staying at one of the nearby hotels - cheaper and much nicer!

“Eating Solo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

One place to eat in Sheffield as a solo punter, without feeling like "Nobby no mates" . Average menu, wine okay! Not the best but definitely not the worst! Wish they would mend the wobbly tables though!

“Never fails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Often call in here for breakfast when I am in Sheffield. The service is always great as it the food. It never fails to set me up for a good day.

“Expensive and freezing cold with slow service and luke warm food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I like the atmosphere of this restaurant, and it is great if you have time to waste, and if you just want wine and nibbles, but if you want a pleasurable dining experience - forget it.
The place is absolutely shiveringly cold. The service is horrendously slow. The food is served with very little warmth, and then you have to wait ages for the bill. I would hesitate to go for anything more than a drink these days, as it is consistenly average in all the above-mentioned areas.

“It Caught My Eye!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I'd passed by Cafe Rouge, several times, on my 2 day visit and noticed the outside tables were pretty full: always a good sign. So, when I had a need for a quick pre-theatre bite-this was my first choice.
I chose Croque Monsieur, recalling the last time I'd eaten that: Paris, sitting at a table close to a hole in the floor with a rattly device that kept on bringing up salads and vegetables.
The one I ate at Cafe Rouge wasn't quite as good as that one but close enough (and so reasonably priced) that I have no complaints. And it does feel very "French!"
Would I go again? Yes.
