A friend recommended this place 3 years ago. Finally made it back to Calgary and took the plunge. It was an amazing experience. Food was just amazing. My wife and the wild boar and was blown away. I chose the Alberta beef, and it was over the top. Can’t wait to get back to Calgary and there again. A definite must for anyone looking to try great food.

Superb meal on the summer patio. Party of 6, everyone thoroughly enjoyed and raved about their meals. Service was outstanding - very friendly and accommodating, some of the best in Calgary. Food fantastic, incredible menu. They gave us a few unexpected and complimentary appetizers etc. Perfect portion sizes. We all loved it. They were able to accommodate gluten free and dairy free.

A returning customer has higher expectations than a newbie. While I haven't been to Rouge in a while, it felt like I was just there last week. My wife and I shared the Grilled Asparagus to start, which we both quite enjoyed. Thought the combination of parmesan custard, asparagus, and radish may fight nastily on my tongue but was pleasantly surprised. I had the Pan-Seared Halibut with the Spring Vegetable Fricassee, Crème Fraîche, Herb Chimichurri… frikkin’ awesome! The Halibut was cooked to so well I never picked up my knife once. My wife had the Alberta Lamb Sirloin which was also wonderful. Kind of wished I didn't have a late lunch and hadmore room for more... :)

n overall excellent experience. We were served by Fabrizio who did a fantastic job. He was very friendly, had great energy and a dedicated attention to detail. He also did an excellent job of attending us while still giving us personal time. We have the charcuterie which was great, and the pork hock soup, which my husband adored, and the tortellini with fennel sausage, which was one of the highlights of the night. We then had the wild boar and Alberta tenderloin for our mains, both of which were excellent. We finished with a dark chocolate terrine which was a lovely and not too sweet. The view is always beautiful and we look forward to returning this summer when we can eat outside near the garden! I especially recommend this restaurant for special or intimate occasions, as it is my personal favourite and where we chose to celebrate.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner - I had the pan-seared halibut which was done to perfection, and my husband had the smoked pork loin which he also said was excellent. The vegetable and ravioli accompaniments were very good. They gave us a complimentary bite-sized appetizer to start as well as exceptional crusty bread with unsalted butter. This was very appreciated since with our small-ish appetites we wouldn't have ordered anything. The wine we chose (by glass) was very good. And we finished off with again a complimentary bite-sized cookie with white chocolate/caramel whip. Service was excellent. We were quite close to two other tables and could overhear conversation - but not overpowering. We would definitely go back.

I would recommend this restaurant for the food, but the portions are small and it is expensive for what you get. I took my 80-year-old mother there who doesn’t eat much and she was still hungry.

We always find time to spend at The Rouge for our get togethers, when I come to Calgary. The food is consistent and I really liked the new waiter from Italy - he was informative, knows his wine and products. Keep up the excellent work.

We had been waiting awhile to have a romantic lunch at Rouge. On my wife's birthday, we reserved for just after lunch and arrived to find the restaurant entirely empty; we had the restaurant to ourselves! Outstanding... one of Calgary's finest restaurants and we were the only guests at that time. Needless to say, service was geared to only the two of us. Food arrived promptly, our wine glasses were attended to promptly, and we had the ability to chat with our lovely host without worrying about other patrons. A wonderful experience beyond our expectations! Rouge lived up to our hopes and we'd certainly return for another lunch treat when the patio is open.

Overall Rouge was an OK experience, however we won't be back. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was good and came promptly. The issue for me laid in the value. $141.75 later without tip I left feeling ripped off and less than satisfied. The entrees consisted of overpriced small portions which were less than satisfying. I'm not sure how they can justify charging $42 a plate for a 5 ounce piece of cod on top of a small bed of garnish. We won't be back and certainly will not be recommending Rouge to any of our friends or family.
