I decided to try Rush after
I decided to try Rush after hearing a number of outstanding reviews from friends and family. The first impression was very positive - hostess station was well-staffed and I was seated immediately. They also offered to check my coat at the door, which was a nice touch.
The wait staff throughout the meal was very attentive and polite, and my water glass never reached empty (one of my benchmarks for attentive service).
My dining companion and I each had the rush hour special, which was a 3 course set menu with a guarantee it will be ready in under half an hour. This was a good option for us since we had an early play to catch afterwards. The food itself was good, flavorful, but would not rate in my top 10 in Calgary.
Will go back ag

Feel the Rush
Lounge Side was a great choice for lunch. Beautiful windows and great service. The meal was brought out in a reasonable time, and our waitress was well versed in the specials and being able to answer all of my questions about each dish. We booked a reservation for 3. The third person in our party was late and about half way through our meal a 4 person joined us. We were well accommodated without any fuss at all, and I quite enjoyed the presentation of each meal. Especially the small details like their coffee cups and saucers and ketchup bowls. Great place. Will go again.

Amazing spot for special occasions!
We sat at the bar and had dinner for my birthday. I started with the foie gras, lobster, duck gravy POUTINE ( DELICIOUS), then had the striploin and was treated to dessert.
rush lounge will forever be a favorite of me and my friends =)

This was a business function and my first visit to Rush.... I was thoroughly impressed. We made an on-line reservation in the lounge for a more casual evening. Food & service was excellent and exceeded expectations. Even the hassle free no charge valet parking was much better than expected.

Beautiful restaurant with
Beautiful restaurant with great food. Live music was excellent. Would have been nice to have some suggestions of mocktails for my pregnant friend. The "virgin mojito" was club soda and lime juice with a wilted mint leaf floating on top = terrible. To keep up with other restaurants in the area, a better selection of cocktails and mocktails would be a great improvement.

This is my second time dining at Rush. The food was absolutely fantastic! Service was good and the ambience was great with live music. It is a bit pricey but worth every penny. I had the spinach ravioli with prosciutto in a pine nut butter sauce for an appetizer. Absolutely mouth watering and delicious. For my entree I had roast chicken with roasted yams. Without a doubt the best chicken I have ever eaten.

Can't wait to go back!
Wow! What an awesome restaurant! We sat in the beautiful lounge and service was excellent!!! The cocktail list was creative and there is an extensive scotch selection. The wine list is amazing! The food was fantastic, we were offered both the lounge and dinner menus (ended up going with dinner) and making choices was though, everything looked so good! For dessert we shared the butter cake, most decadent and delicious dessert ever! Wow! Can't wait to go back and sample snacks from the lounge menu!!! A tad expensive, but it's defiantly worth every penny!

Great place for a business lunch, service was attentive, food was delicious. Simple menu with features makes it easy to choose, both members in my party had the $22 Beef Short Rib feature with gnocchi and asparagus. Wine is expansive however it teeters towards the expensive side. An excellent location in the base of the PennWest building with easy access from anywhere in DT. Service was attentive although prepare for the up sell push. Desserts were delicious and prepare for a monster portion of the Red Velvet Cake. A splurge but well worth it.

The food was excellant, however
The food was excellant, however it took a very long time to plate. So a bit slow for a lunch venue. I was disappointed on the slowness to plate I had taken out of tonw guests and we needed to get back to the office.

We couldn't get a reservation in the dining room as it was all booked so we made reservations for the lounge and it was fabulous! Didn't feel like we were in just any lounge. The staff was all amazing and treated us like gold and the sommelier was so friendly and helpful. Not to mention the food, there were 6 of us, we all ordered something different and we were all pleased. Steaks that were ordered were done to perfection! Can't wait to go back again!
