Description: A singular reflection of Alberta's signature hospitality, Rush Ocean Prime's downtown location occupies a large space in what was once Calgary's main post office, a magnificent building modernized. With a new look, new menu, and new attitude, the new Rush relaxes fine dining with a bold, brash and revolutionized offer. Rush aims to surprise guests with inventive globally inspired food from land to sea. Generous portions of steak and seafood are served up alongside sommelier selected wines and handcrafted cocktails. From the attentive service to the open, contemporary space, Rush sets the stage for special every-day encounters - whether it is a coveted spot in the intimate dining room or shared small plates and drinks in the lounge before a game.

Rush boasts a nice date night ambiance with healthy portion sizes. The wine menu is extensive so go crazy and sample a few. I was able to make a reservation online through open table which was helpful. There are several veggie appetizers and dishes to share and a veggie main. They were also willing to create addition veggie options for the main. Tasty and great service, I recommend.

My husband loves the bar-side for an extended-business lunch scotchfest. I love the restaurant side for an elegant night on the town. We both love the wine selection, the great staff, and the amazing food. I can't say enough good things about the employees at Rush who have always made dining there a wonderful experience. In fact, after signing our marriage license we had a celebratory dinner at the Chef's Table - it was a great and memorable experience and I highly recommend it. But one thing stands out the most when I think about Rush (other than the ridiculously good, cheesy, mashed-potato dish)...and that's wine! They have an amazing wine selection and a knowledgeable staff to help you wade through the many choices.

Spent New Year's Eve at Rush and enjoyed the fabulous tasting menu. Every bite was inventive and delicious. The atmosphere is cool and the service spot on. Rush is on my list of top spots around North America (I travel all over for work). I look forward to coming back on my next trip to Calgary!
