I went to Rouge because it is reputed to be one of the top restaurants in Calgary. Atmosphere and Service: top notch. It's in a Victorian mansion, the waiter told me the whole history of the house and restaurant. He was also funny, and service was impeccable and made the meal. Food: the restaurant has a garden, where they grow... More

I've been to Rouge twice. Great atmosphere and friendly, chatty staff. Very expensive so is more of an occasion restaurant. The food has blown my mind both times. Just bite the bullet and order the Chef's Tasting option, you will not be disappointed. Dishes and flavours like nothing I've ever had before. Incredibly creative and delicious.

On our first night in Calgary we had a wonderful dinner at Rouge. Set in a historic home, with a lovely garden patio, we started with excellent Martinis and enjoyed a sumptuous meal: grilled Rockfish and a perfect Roast Duck breast. Excellent wine list to boot. Our server, Richard, was professional, knowledgeable and steered us right with our choices. We... More

Went for reservation made through open table. Restaurant was closed. Disappointing to say the least. Location not exactly easy to get to given the construction. Maybe unlock the door for your guests? Sad.

I attended a wedding here this weekend. I was a member of the wedding party. The event coordinator is incredible. She made sure every little detail was taken into account and that everything went seamlessly. She was great. She made sure that there was a private space for the wedding party to go to and put our things and regroup/touch... More

We were visiting Calgary on my birthday so booked Rouge as a special treat. The tasting menu surpassed my expecting and the quality was consistent through all the courses, featuring local products. We paired it with a single premium wine pairing to share between us and that was the perfect amount to consume and the selection was delightful. The only... More

I highly recommend the tasting menu. They have perfected each dish and it didn't disappoint. Majority of the produce is grown in the garden right outside the of the restaurant.

For the first time, we went to Rouge last week for lunch. The salads there use fresh ingredients grown right there on site. As a result, the lettuce was the freshest I have ever tasted. Lightly dressed, it was an extremely tasty salad. We also had the wagyu beef and papardelle pasta dish. YUM! Service was great. We will be... More
