Rush - Dining Room
Had a lovely dinner at RushHad a lovely dinner at Rush the other evening. Hadn't been for a while, during which the chef has changed several times. Still delivering excellent value. We had a wonderfully comfortable booth for two near the rear of the dining area. The food was really beautifully presented and very tasty. Scallops & foie-gras api was outstanding, a re-imagined caesar salad take was interesting and tasty. Our mains of duck trio and lamb were also terrific - wonderful flavour combinations. We also had a wonderfully personable yet professional server. The only minor quibble was that the plate and food arrived a little cooler than it should have. Overall, great place - I'll definitely be back!12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't be afraid to spend aDon't be afraid to spend a little cash for a dinner here. It's very much worth it. This restaurant boasts a fantastic ambience, food and wine.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!Can't say enough! Food was amazing. Beyond amazing!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect NightI was looking for a nice place to take my girlfriend so I could pop the question, I just happened upon Rush at random on this site and thought that looks nice. Booked the reservation and away we went. The complementary valet parking is great, I managed to lock my keys in my car before the valet could take my car, they where very accommodating with me have to leave my car in the valet lane well I wait for AMA. They insisted we went in and started our meal and they would come and get us when AMA arrived. Which was very nice. The waitress was super nice and very helpful, after thinking I ran out on my date (when I really went to unlock my car) I am positive it was a big surprise when the ring came out. Will defiantly be going back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery ImpressiveWe have wanted to try Rush for a long time. I had made a reservation when my fiancee and I got engaged but when we got there thought the noise level was a little high for the intimate dinner we were going to have. The management was very understanding and asked us to stay even just for champagne. We declined. 6 months later we were looking for a good dinner for her birthday, and decided on Rush as the noise wouldnt be a concern. When we got there we were wowed that they had champagne on the table for us. Service was out of this world. We decided to try the Chefs tasting menu and everything on the menu was absolutely brilliant. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great special night out. Look forward to next time!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great lunch at RushAnother great lunch at Rush and still the mash potatoes are awesome!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMa special momentsThis evening was by far the most memorable I have ever enjoyed with someone special. The appetizers were splendid the suggested wine for both the appetizers and the meals was the perfect compliment to an excellent dinning experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!I have recommended the restaurant to several friends as a great romantic night out! The staff was friendly and the food was delicious!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great night at Rush.We had a great night at Rush. The Burrata salad was absolutely amazing, just as good as any we have had in New York or Miami. Our entrees were fantastic as well. We will definitely be back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice!Starting with free valet parking was nice! We went with the taster menu. Every course was good and some were great. All were small. The wine pairings also varied from good to great. All in all, a very nice way to spend an evening.
I think we will return for a nice dinner from the main menu.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh Quality FoodThe food was fantastic, but be prepared to dish out a couple dollars, as it is quite expensive. Great for special occasions!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service & Live MusicThe food and service was great. We sat in the restaurant and enjoyed the live music from the bar. Just the right noise level that you could enjoy good conversation and live music.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAt last - the search is over!I thought the food was great, presentation was spot-on, the portions were reasonable (not too much, or too little) and the price reasonable. A big plus is the ambience. Tasteful, upscale and quiet and the main reason I selected Rush for an important business lunch. I detest going to a restaurant and paying top dollar for a meal where I can barely hear the person sitting beside me, no problem conversing with everyone at my table without having to raise my voice or straining to hear what was being said - a very refreshing change from a few similar establishments in Calgary.
The service was perfect, just the right balance without hovering over you, but always there at just the right moment - impressive! Take that La Chaumiere!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the experience wasOverall the experience was good. The dining room was very elegantly decorated, the staff was very attentive, and the atmosphere was suitable for a business dinner. The only blemish was the appetizers. I think the chefs would benefit from re-thinking some of the starters. We were so worried about our main course after the appetizers that we were considering canceling the order, but we were pleasantly surprised. The duck breast was wonderful...brilliantly cooked, great flavour combinations. My husband had the steak and he was very pleased as well.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed this diningThoroughly enjoyed this dining experience.
