“Cuisine créative et savoureuse!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Last week, while visiting my daughter in NY, she suggested one night to go to Rouge et Blanc for dinner. She had heard about this young and upcoming chef Macks Collins and the great carte des vins of Thomas Cregan one of the top sommelier in America.
Good enough! We didn't know what to expect but we couldn't resist a culinary experience.
We loved it! so fine, delicious and creative, a true explosion of savors in every bite! Bravo chef Collins!
I recommend Rouge et Blanc without hesitation.
Besides the amazing cuisine and the fine wine selection, the ambiance, the service, the attentive personal, everything is quite charming and make you feel welcome. In overall Rouge et Blanc is for open minded people who can appreciate new cuisine. Just go! L Lapointe

“bring the octopus back!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

rouge et blanc is an incredibly romantic restaurant buried in the village. it is not big by any means which keeps the noise to a quiet level allowing you to talk with your friends or lover. i have been to this restaurant twice and while i will admit the first time was way better (hence my title, bring the octopus back) the food was still excellent the second time. the wait staff seems to be getting a bit more uppity, but i refuse to let that ruin a great meal. being on a side street creates a nice ambiance as well and its nice to continue the date by walking around the restaurant afterwards. the food is worth it here - but do your homework, if you don't like fusion that don't visit but if you can appreciate creativity this is your place

“New chef, very disappointing”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

The first time I went to Rouge et Blanc was after I read the review in the New York Times in 2011. I was so pleased with all the dishes AND the monkey breads and always wanted to go back (see my previous review in Tripadvisor). The time had come when a friend was visiting me from oversea. However, as soon as I saw the menu, i was so disappointed, the razor clams, the baby octopus, the short ribs were all gone. it's alright for restaurants change menu as they sometimes do but as soon as i tasted the new dishes, i knew something was wrong. and the worst was, NO MORE monkey breads. the breads they offered were tasteless and flavorless. i immediately checked with the server and found out they have a new owner, a new chef!!! that explained everything. we had their house-made noodles, artic char, scallion rice crepe, grilled pork belly, sea scallops and octopus but non of them could amuse us. they were not terrible but just too ordinary. with the money we spent there, i would rather go to Nougatine or ca va or Brassarrie, etc. btw, can anyone tell me where Matt Rojas is now????

“No french food at all. Too spicy”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We didn't like the waitress service, the wine list almost without " glass" option and few bottles medium price ($40).
They could tell us that the food was very, very spicy.
