The Teller House is a fascinating old building and has the famous "Face on the Barroom Floor." We ate in the atrium which was simple but pleasant and sunny. The menu had a nice variety with reasonable prices. Our food was good though not spectacular. The service was adequate but if our server had shown some warmth and interest in the story of this historical place, lunch would have been a memorable occasion. Happily the opera was a delight and the short pre-opera presentation by the Assistant Director made it even better.

Interesting restaurant.........
Good food, nice plate presentations.
Everything is a' la Carte', salad from $9-$12, entree from $25-$30, dessert from $9-$10.
It's an experience, much like what you get & pay at for instance, Morton's Steakhouse.
Went to Opera in the next buiding, supposed to be oldest opera house west of the Mississippi...........
Great evening over all !

This place puts you back in the 1700's. Amazing they were able to keep it in this state...very worthwhile tour.

Located in the historic Teller Hotel building connected with the Central City Opera House, this is an elegant, friendly place. Though a little limited, the dual-purpose lunch/dinner menu has good variety and is all very good, with nice fresh ingredients and excellent service. I had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch and a Cobb salad for dinner on a recent trip to the opera there. Homemade pickles witht the sandwich were a definite plus. Fabulous setting in an historic building plus very good food and friendly, efficient service make the Rouge a winner.

We ate at Rouge once and cancelled our second reservation. I had the tuna tartare appetizer with house made sesame crackers. The ahi tuna was fine but the crackers had no crack and were limp. My main was coffee crusted lamb loin with bread pudding and wilted greens. The greens were incredibly bitter and inedible. They overpowered everything else on the plate. My wife had the mixed greens and shaved fennel salad which she enjoyed. Her main was seared scallops with celery root puree. She liked the taste, but there were only 3 scallops and the entree cost $28. Where I come from that is larceny. We also ate four times at the Face Bar, in the same building and also a Kevin Taylor restaurant. The food here is uneven and ranges from excellent to barely edible. For example, I had the seared Japanese spiced ahi tuna, but it was a tough chunk of tuna with inedible grizzle and even difficult to cut. My plate was supposed to be served with pickled ginger, but none of it made it to my plate. Instead there was an incongruous piece of sliced zucchini. On the other hand, the $11 sirloin burger and fries are exceptional. So Kevin Taylor can really make a good burger. The salads are also good, and the striped bass is a small portion but delicious. Service was mostly very good.
