This restaurant is in a twoThis restaurant is in a two storey house. The food tastes good but the portions are a bit small. There is a seperate seating area upstairs which would be ok for groups. The service was bit slow as we waiting for over 10 mins for our waiter to greet us. We had scallops which were very tender. Complimentary taster of smoked duck. Artic Char was good but the skin was a bit tough but came with a good veggie selection.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnifique!My spouse and I went to Rouge to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and the experience was fantastic! From the interior decoration to the divine food through a great service, every aspect of our evening was a bliss.
Being from France makes me a connoisseur in the field and I'm proud to say that Rouge has delivered in all areas and definitely lives up to its reputation!12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at the restaurantOur first time at the restaurant and enjoyed our evening. The side room tended to heat up a bit, but otherwise was great.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty darned greatEven if it's a bit pricey, it's worth it for special occasions or making a good impression on a date. It's a very romantic little spot with amazing food, and I must add that the staff were phenomenal and knew every little detail about the food and it's preparation. I usually don't fill out these types of survey/reviews, but I highly recommend this place.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood here is always inventive,Food here is always inventive, inspired and delicious.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM25th AnniversaryOur first visit to Rouge was for our 25th anniversary and it was a brilliant idea. Usually one might be in and out of a restaurant in one and a half to two hours but we elected to go with the Chef's Six Course and so we took almost exactly four hours and hugely enjoyed it.
The courses were all delicious and, although we are not wine connoisseurs by any stretch, the wine pairings were excellent and we had to get one of our kids to come and pick us up. Don't you hate the 0.05 limit?6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great the serviceThe food was great the service was excellent, We had the The Chef's Tasting Menu' A surprise for each course.The waiter knew exactly what was being served, and where all the wines came from.

Most of the food was really good, my lamb was amazing, two people at our table had the risotto with truffle oil and egg as a starter and it was excellent. The only bad dish was my starter, the shrimp two temperature garpachio - it was terrible. Desserts were nothing special.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRouge lived up to its reputationRouge lived up to its reputation for excellent food and service.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRouge, as always, was wonderful.Rouge, as always, was wonderful. Service and food at Rouge is excellent - very relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy the meal. And love the explanation of each dish as it arrives.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Chef's tastingWe had the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. The food and wine were amazing; however, the service was a bit slow with the whole event taking about three and a half hours.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRougeWe went to Rouge for our anniversary. As it had been raining for days we were keen to sit outside. I was disappointed with the plastic chairs and tent - it would have been more elegant with metal or wood chairs and we considered going back inside. The tent does not allow you to really enjoy the wonderful garden they have. The food quality was amazing though my veggie husband was disappointed with the tiny pasta serving size as an entree. This seems to be the norm order a vegetarian dish and receive a tiny portion - not everyone ordering this is on a diet:)6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous chef's tasting menu.We found each of the 6 courses to be very innovative and tasty. I would highly recommend having the chef feed you if it is a special occasion such as an anniversary. Our waiter was fantastic. She was friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing. The food was delivered promptly and was incredibly well prepared and presented.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodI had the rhubarb desert and I must say this is not what I expected. I will definitely not recommend this dish to anyone. That's why I gave the food 4/5. I had the pork and scallop dish and I feel the pork can be done better, it's a bit tough and tasteless. The scallop was done excellent and especially the vegetable, it was superb!
Viviana5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Experience!Everything at Rouge was better than I could have imagined. The food was to die for and the service was excellent. I am definitely keeping Rouge in mind for future dining experiences. Rouge is official my favorite restraunt.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely EveningThe service was superb. This is the place to go if you want to be spoiled. The food is haute cuisine. Be prepared to spend at least $100/person. You do get what you pay for!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Wine PairingsThe renowned food and service at Rouge is exceptional. We enjoyed both standard and premium wine tastings as well as our cab home :)
We had the fixed prix menu, with one diner being gluten free, and the chef amazed us. The extra touches (fresh GF biscuits and buns, stories of the food preparation, etc.) made for an entertaining evening!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMchefs table selection was excellentWent with my girlfriend for date night and allowed the server to convince us to be taken on an adventure of the chefs selection which was quite expensive but worth every penny. He did a great job explaning each of the dishes and the wine pairings all of which were delicious. The ambience was very quiet and romantic.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMour table had a view of theour table had a view of the garden which was an added bonus, the service was great as was the food. Tomato salad was one of the highlights and I appreciate that this restaurant supports local producers. would go again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular Dining ExperienceChef Paul Rogalski and his staff excel at providing their guests with a first class and spectacular dining experience. We decided on the Chef's Tasting Menu with the standard pairings. Six courses and wine pairings for each course, each plate was a complete surprise and resulted in my girlfriend and I looking at each other saying "WOW" with each bite. The wine pairings were perfect. The presentation and service was impeccable.
Treat yourself and experience Rouge!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI've heard about Rouge for awhile and was so glad to finally try it. Everything was amazing!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpent the better part of 3+Spent the better part of 3+ hours having a relaxing dinner with a friend. Had the chiefs selection and premium wine matching. The service was perfect for our needs, friendly and appropriately attentive. We had a great table location just in front of the window giving what felt like a very private experience even though the restaurant was reasonably busy as the night went on. The food was all what you would expect at a premium French themed restaurant as was the wine selection. It is a priced accordingly for a premium restaurant. I truly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChef's Table a delightWe enjoyed a lovely evening at Rouge. Putting ourselves in the chef's hands, we ordered the chef's table. Six courses, paired with lovely wines and a few surprise "amuse-bouches" thrown in. Each plate was delightful and perfectly portioned. The wine pairings were outstanding. The service was top notch, attentive without being intrusive.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatWe loved rouge last time we went, and this time was great too. We had a beef strip loin that was slowly cooked sous vide? and then finished to make it extra tender and unfortunately it was tough and hard to eat, we told our waitress and she handled it exactly the way she should have. Later on the general manager came by to check on us and explain what had happened. Again exceptional service
We will definitely go back and look forward to the flavours and service5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful meal withHad a wonderful meal with an out of town guest and two colleagues on Wednesday evening. The quality at rouge is simply outstanding - wonderful food, great service, a lovely feel to the place. Its like the comfort of dining in your own home (assuming you could create food this wonderful), but without the fuss of preparing food or cleaning up! I have been here often and it never disappoints.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery SpecialA very special restaurant. We had the Chef's selection as recommended by others along with the wine pairings. A unique experience for us.
The most expensive dinner ever for us, but totally unique and memorable. It's worth saving up for.
We will return but likely have a more traditional meal.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionsIt was our first time to Rouge, we really enjoyed everything about it. The food was amazing, and beautifully presented with a very interesting selection. The waiter was great in recommending which wines to pair with our food. The only complaint was that it got very busy after 8pm and there was only the one waiter upstairs and he got extremely busy quickly and we were left with our dessert menus for 1/2hr trying to flag him down. Up until then he was very attentive. So maybe go earlier than later if you are in a hurry.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery romantic. I cant waitVery romantic.
I cant wait to go in the summer.
