Overall, I would highly recommend Rouge.

The portions aren't large, but very typical of Nouvelle Cuisine. If you're looking for healthy sized portions, you may want to look elsewhere. However, the food was fantastic. The Atlantic lobster tortellini was delicious and the sturgeon was flavourful and cooked to perfection. My guest enjoyed the butter leaf lettuce salad and the smoked benchmark ribeye, which were also very tasty and prepared nicely. The meal was topped off with the dark chocolate brownie and the malted mousse cake, both of which were a pleasure to the senses.

The service was also excellent. Our waiter was observant and efficient without overkill. And the venue has character and is very quaint. As the restaurant is in an old house (and we went on a very cold evening), I was pleased to find the temperature very comfortable without any cold drafts, something quite typical in many restaurants of this nature.

I look forward to returning in the summer months to sample some of the produce grown on site.

I had been to the Cross House years ago and loved how the old house had been reinvented into a lovely restaurant. So after the transformation to Rouge some years ago and the many accolades I had heard, I was quite disappointed. While the food was excellent, there was simply no ambiance. The walls are stark white and the track lighting is bright. A beautiful old house that could easily have been decorated to reflect the era and enhance the old world experience was sorely lacking.

Our first time there. We had always wanted to try going there for a dinner meal but their bookings were full usually during festivities times, so we decided to do it after the New Year just for a lunch meal. It's actually more enjoyable as it's quieter & more relaxing. The food was excellent. They even offered a 3-course express weekday lunch for $25 only. We definitely will go back & bring some friends & relatives along. Thank you for the great food!

Went out for dinner with our son and his wife. We had the chefs tasting plate which was a 6 course meal Andre Wes went with the matching wine tasting. Enjoyed most of the courses very much especially the beef and tortellini courses. Had two red wines and two rose along with the dessert wine.
All good but enjoyed the Red’s the most. Quite pricy for the overall meal so not something we would do often.

Christmas get together with friends. Very good location with minimal noise for good conversation. The food was amazing as usual but the prices are very high. The wine list is off the charts for price with very few options less than $120 per bottle. Wines we can buy for $35 at liquor store are $100 to $125 and one of the ones at $95 they did not have and the second bottle at $110 they only had one botttle. Each one they recommended was $20 more. A great spot if cost is not a concern.

We went for her birthday, looking for a special night out. We opted for the Chefs’ tasting menu(6 courses)with the wine pairings. The food was delicious and the wine pairings were very well done. It was a lovely meal and (with the service we received) made her night a very special one.
