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.

There are a lot of great restaurants in Calgary, but few stand above others. Rouge is a gem that has never disappointed. They take locally sourced ingredients to unique and vibrant dishes that are just as creative and colorful as any on the world stage. Every time we've gone, we've done the tasting menu, which we typically do when offered at any Michelin Star restaurant. Rouge creations are at the same level showing technique and creativity. If you haven't tried it, definitely set an evening aside to do the tasting menu and wine pairing as very few can do it at that caliber.

Service was excellent but the food was tasteless and small- super small portions. The $48 tenderloin was maybe 4oz and the short rib had no taste to it although it was cooked well.

We had the
Chefs Tasting Menu, and we were very disappointed in the food. We were pleasant and did not complain as the food was cooked properly but we just did not enjoy the tastes, but our waitress seemed personally offended that we didn't finish every plate.
