The total experience was less than I expected in and out in less than an hour. Minimal selection on the menu. Don’t think we’ll be 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.

Great experience, we had Chefs choice/pairing and spent the entire evening enjoying exquisite food with interesting wine pairings. We were seated main floor living room and a table of five for a wedding celebration. They took care of all the little details. Perfect.

Great service here. I asked my server for extra sauce for the short rib dinner, and she recognized that the short rib portion I received was too dry. She replaced the entire meal. It was delicious

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.

When there are special occasions, or just to meet, we go to Rouge. We always have a fabulous meal and the staff recommendations are great. We are planning to return in June for my son's birthday. Rouge is a very special restaurant and I would encourage anyone to go there for an outstanding meal.

The caesar salad made with butter lettuce was a nice change from the usual romaine lettuce salad. The wine list was extensive. I choice a red wine from Spain and it paired well with the cheese board. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive. I would recommend Rouge for a special dining experience and evening out.

We had dinner at 5:30 and there was no one else there...it started to get busy around 6:30 but we were still able to have a conversation without shouting. I love the fact that there is free parking across the street and the building itself has so much character. The food was so delicious. We have been a few times and they have never disappointed us.

We made reservations as part of the YYC Dining Experience and had the five course gourmet menu. Each course was excellent - well prepared and presented - and great flavours. As we have come to expect the service was great. The servers explained each course as it was served along with the wine pairings. Water glasses were kept filled. And the pace of the meal leisurely which was perfect. Well done Rouge.

Rouge is somewhere my wife and I have wanted to go for a long time. During YYC Food & Drink Experience, they had a 5-course menu that we really wanted to try so we managed to make our way there. The food was, realistically, everything we expected from a fine dining establishment. Prepared professionally, presented beautifully, and brought to us at a cadence that neither rushed us out the door nor made us spend the entirety of our evening there. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We're not big wine drinkers so we were a little out of our depth and asked for a recommendation. The red wine (Dido) that was recommended for us was, in our humble opinions, perfect. It's something we'll go search out for ourselves to have in our selection at home.

All in all, Rouge left a lasting impression on us and will be somewhere we recommend to our friends and family. The atmosphere was also more pleasant than I was expecting. I'm sure it won't be too long before we find ourselves here again.
