Lovely, lovely place! Chose the Tasting menu and was very pleased. The range of tastes from the caviar, foie gras and beef cheek to the varied wine and spirits menu was really wonderful. We went for the first time to celebrate our anniversary and loved the ambiance. We sat in the front window of the beautiful old, restored house under... More

It was so good to return to Rouge as it had been a few years since we'd been there. Love the ambience of this heritage home. Like the fact that they have different rooms to be seated in and they are never crowded. Staff is excellent, friendly and attentive. The food we had was well prepared and presented. There is...

Well sadly I went to what I thought was one of the best restaurants in Calgary.. I've been multiple times, this time I was sadly disappointed. My must have extremely dry martini was returned twice, I couldn't return a third time, but I wanted to O.o My DRY martini was sweet. The food was hit and miss, we had the... More

We've been to Rouge twice. Amazing ambience in a sweet historic former home in Inglewood. The servers are top notch! Whether you're seated inside or out, it's comfortable with good spacing between tables. I would definitely recommend sitting outside during the summer as the patio is very romantic. My only complaint is that the food wasn't as top notch the... More

We celebrated a birthday with the chefs tasting menu here. Everything was good but unfortunately nothing was excellent. At a restaurant like this I always expect a little more of an experience. For example... The service was pleasant and everyone was attentive to our drink needs but never once brushed the crumbs from the table. The food was good but... More

5 star European style service with a French flair to the food. The wine list is extensive, the menu is somewhat small (just a handful of items) but the food is full of flavour. It was a nice change to have "proper" service by a waiter who "knew" the menu and the food, and how it was prepared. A bit... More

Local reviews gave Rouge top marks. We went for a special night and tried the Chef's Menu, a six course meal. I had called to arrange for a particular wine to be available, which they said they had. The wine turned out not to be in their cellar. The service was indifferent to begin with and we had several people... More

Did some research on the best places in Calgary to go for a romantic dinner as it was my first wedding anniversary and this place came up on just about every list, and for good reason. When we arrived they took us to a quite table by the window, shortly after seating a member of the wait staff gave us... More

Came in on a recommendation from a friend last fall but recently got trip advisor and had to comment on it, just so memorable! I did a tasting menu with wine pairings, unbelievable! The cuisine was perfectly seasoned and pair beautifully with wines chosen for the dishes that day. My server Jamie was wonderful, she had a great knowledge of... More
