One of our go-to lunch spots. Never disappointed with service, food, or the view! And they have a kids menu!

In all honesty, the places that were our first choice were booked on our one and only night in the area. But Rouge looked inviting and we were able to snag a table outside. Like others have mentioned, the people watching is a fine spectator sport here. Lots of fun watching people pull their dogs along on a walk or... More

Tight seating and expensive. Only good for a drink and If you are fortunate enough to score a seat, maybe an app.

Our roast loin of pork and soft shell sandwiches were delicious. Each sandwich came with great French fries. Remember the place is small and there is an outdoor space facing... More

I frequent a lot of restaurants in Philly/LA and never have an issue with phantom bar tabs....except here. lol! Twice in 2 years, interesting. Make sure you thoroughly check your bill otherwise you may be in for a surprise. Seriously.... and yes, I was a bit fired up and wound up getting thrown out for questioning my bill. Oh well......

Stopped by for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after arriving in the city. Nice menu and good wines. Had a corner sofa seat by the window, Rittenhouse Park across the street. Cozy , great service and a sophisticated atmosphere.
