Our appetizers and entrees
Our appetizers and entrees were delicious,(the desserts not as good) but the noise level was very high. We didn't know that it is pretty much a large bar with about 15 tables surrounding it. Would still go back though because the food was that good. Our waitress was very good also.

Good food and beautiful location
Four of us went to Rouge to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday and everyone ordered different dishes. Escargots and salads for appetizers were generous and well-prepared, and flavor combinations on dishes such as the fried oysters with onion relish and braised brussels sprouts were imaginative and worked well. Wine list was good and the chardonnay we chose was excellent. Seating at a window overlooking Rittenhouse Square enlarged the small space of the restaurant. The only negative was the noise, as it was hard to have a conversation, but this is a problem with many Philly hot spots. We would recommend, especially for a celebratory occasion.

It was very, very lively as it is an obvious hot spot. Food was a good choice of healthy and indulgent - and the dessert selections were some of the most unique found in the area. I had an avocado pound cake (vegan)- which was a very good recipe-- containing the ingredients I would use to prepare a similar cake. The presentation on all items was also great --and considering the crowded atmosphere, the staff was accomodating and very pleasant.

At a recent lunch, we sat at an outdoor table enjoying delicious food, excellent service and a fabulous view of Rittenhouse Park. I highly recommend. We ate shrimp spring rolls, roasted beet salad and fish tacos. Everything was great. The rolls are yummy too.

Love Rouge. But service was rather unattentive and slow at lunch. A bummer. Nonetheless, we'll try, try again.

Rouge is a always good for a business lunch, a cocktail at the bar, an early dinner on the square, or a late night romatic dinner. Thoughtful and consistent menu - wonderful wine list.

Good food, good location
I went to Rouge with two friends and had a delicious lunch. We were on the early side, so there was no significant noise level. The location opposite Rittenhouse Square is of course delightful.

We had two different burgers and our out of town guests were overwhelmed by the size and deliciousness. The French fries were also yummy. the calamari dish was ok.

9th wedding anniversary
From the hostess, to the server (Dena), to the bussers-- everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The food and drinks were great, and Dena even offered us free dessert for our anniversary..unfortunately we had no room for dessert. I also found it to be reasonably priced for such high quality everything. Loved it!!

At a recent lunch, we enjoyed an indoor table by the window on a beautiful day. The menu is varied; the food is very good; the service is professional. Of note, was the delicious dessert -- blueberry ice cream! Probably the best ice cream I've ever tasted! Go and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

Rouge Gets it Right
Rouge is a permanent fixture in Philly's restaurant world and last night I was reminded why. I love the ambiance of this restaurant and the weekly additions to their menu will keep me coming back. I took a client here and the service was great - attentive, but not intrusive. Used dishes and flatware were removed promptly and water and wine were filled without flagging anyone down. Mushroom toast and apple & cranberry cobbler were definitely worth mentioning in this review. I typically enjoy rouge alfresco for wine and light bites, but I'll be back to dine inside again this winter.

Rouge is reliably good. The menu is limited to items that are well prepared. Excellent burger and truffle fries are always among the best.
