“Both heartening and exciting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Rouge is a step above the rest in the area. The atmosphere is exciting with red and yellow vibrancy and cozy music flowing from its walls. Quality and price finally make sense!

The staff is laid back and almost huggable. It may happen! I highly recommend the duck spring rolls, green beans with almonds and the Ny strip on the tapas menu. Also try oysters on a half shell with some champagne.

My boyfriend is not one for fancy treats so he gets possibly the "best burger he has ever had".
The drinks are expensive but strong. Jeremy can mix any cocktail to your taste.
The owners love the restaurant and the people that enjoy life!

Just have some patience on busy nights - the waiters are in every part of the old building moving as fast as they can!

“Great food, service, and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Sat in bar area and grabbed a bunch of tapas with dining companion. Everything was exquisite and delicious. Dessert was amazing too. Fun place with lots of dining options - size and price wise.

“First Time Here, Very Pleased”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We were invited to dinner by a friend and her companion and they suggested Rouge which we never heard of and wasn't sure how far it was from Stephentown, NY. After a shorter ride than expected, we arrived at 6:05 for a 6:30 reservation and someone at the bar was having a medical issue (unrelated to the food it appears) and had to leave. There was only 1 seat at the bar until the party of 3 had to leave due to the medical issue. The four of us then sat at the bar, had drinks and waited for our table. We were seated promptly at 6:30 (a good thing!) in the room behind the hostess station.

Our party of 4 ordered 2 Lemon Chickens, an order of ribs and the duck. We first ordered two greens salads to begin with - small, but tasty. Everyone really liked their entrees and the wines were great. The service was a bit slow, especially when we wanted to pay the check. The entrees are on the pricey side for the portions you get. Nice place, I will definitely return.

“The best in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

The ambiance, the service and the food were wonderful and dare I say even exciting. The staff was helpful and knowledgable. The wine list was interesting and reasonable. A must go place in the area.

“Charming and delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

What an adorable place! The decor is fantastic and cozy feeling. The fried olives stuffed with goat cheese are phenomenal! My mom and I both opted for sandwiches in addition to the olives. I got a delicious burger with fontina cheese and my mom got a chicken sandwich that was tasty. Our server, Eliza was great. I would highly recommend Rouge!
