Every detail was delicious! The vinaigrette on the garden salad was light and refreshing. The duck confit was perfect and the vegetables were fresh and tasty. I had the wonderfully tangy lemon parfait to finish and it was delightful. More...

Seriously the best meal of my life! Had the privilege to be part of a chef's tasting menu and I have to say, it was AMAZING!!! Food was out of this world, wine pairings were perfection, and the atmosphere was top notch. Definitely a must-do! More...

All together acceptable. The ambiente of this old house needs a good interior designer so that at least the curtains fit in to the house and to the windows. The tomatoe salad as an entree was superb! The lamb sirloin as a main unfortunately was a bit flat tasting. I missed the characteristc taste of lamb. Unfortunately the strawberry cheescake was out. More...

I have eaten at Rouge a few times over the years and the food and service have always been excellent. We ate there last night for my daughter's birthday and everyone was just delighted with their meals. What I love is that every element on the plate receives the same level of care and attention rather than the meat getting all the attention and then the vegetables being a boring afterthought. I had beef tenderloin which was perfect, and the truffled potato croquettes were out of this world. The portion sizes were perfect, allowing us to enjoy a starter and dessert as well, without feeling over full. My starter of shrimp and grits was memorable - I think the worst food I've eaten in my entire life was encountered on my trip to the southern States, and this dish redeemed my impression of southern cooking. We ate on the patio with a view of their lovely, peaceful garden, complete with a bunny hopping around helping keep the lawn trimmed! A wonderful evening. More...

5 stars based on execution and service. We started with the charcuterie; it came with some chorizo, which was soooo good. It also comes with foie gras, which was very well done. If you don't want to get the full charcuterie, at least get the foie gras.My main was the halibut. It had a nice sear and the dish is well balanced. There's a lot of flavours working together beautifully with the fish and its accompaniments. My bf had the lamb; great flavour that wasn't overwhelmed by the dishes other components.We were outside and the ambiance was so lovely. They have lights strung up and the garden is well kept. Overall, a really great and satisfying date night experience! More...

Went here for a birthday dinner and was so happy I did. Truly an amazing place. Incredible food and the most polite and accommodating staff. If the weather's nice enough I'd definitely recommend sitting outside; it's a gorgeous patio with wedding-style tents and hanging lights. It's a pricey place but worth every penny! More...

I always love Tenderloins for my main course and it was perfectly done. They just served it all well and was surprised that it was all superb. I enjoyed this Flourless Chocolate Torte, a must try and the wine selections are vast and their service is superb. Don’t forget to try as well. More...

This is the second time I have come here and both times have been amazing. The atmosphere is intimate and classy. Perfect for a romantic date. The food was excellent. I can't remember the last time I had duck that was so perfectly prepared. The wild boar was excellent as well.The service was top notch. We had three different people check in and they were all wonderful. More...

An amazing restaurant in a historical house. A very helpful staff I took the time to contact their offshift sommelier to ensure that we had a pairing to our taste. We shared the charcuterie but were blown away by the beef carpaccio and had to have a second serving. We will be back beyond a doubt. More...

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Calgary. If I could afford to eat here more often, I would! The servers always go above and beyond to cater to their guests. The food is exceptional and unique. Defintely the best duck dish in the city. The environment is intimate and romantic but also feels like home as it's set in an old house. I highly reccommend this place for any special occassion or date night. More...

On New Year’s Eve we were the only 2 customers for lunch and had the restaurant all to ourselves! Our waiter was amazing, funny and very nice guy! Went with the charcuterie and cheese plate (doesn’t disappoint!) and tried the fish cake and the duck. (With lentilles du Puy if you are familiar) Again, real good. Lemon tart for dessert. Would have loved to come back for their special on the same night but unfortunately we couldn’t! Next time I hope. The restaurant is located in an heritage house and it sounds very French (white « nappe » for example). Reminded me of some upscale restaurants in France. Must also be wonderful during the summer when you can use the patio. More...

Amazing experience. From the moment we walked in, from service to food, everything was exceptional. I cannot even begin to describe the love and quality that must have gone into our meal and experience. Drinks were great and the wine list was extensive and luxurious. Definitely will have to revisit just for that. Thanks Rouge for the amazing anniversary dinner, will definitely return. Must try hidden gem, would very highly recommend. More...

Historic building with beautifully landscaped yard. Perfect for small intimate weddings. The food is fresh with some greens sourced from the garden in the back. The food was good but not memorable and portions were small and expensive. Exactly what you'd expect from a high end restaurant. So don't come eat here with a small budget and a big appetite.

One of the best meals of my life. I had rabbit papardelle to start. It was so good with a slight bitterness from foraged mushrooms. Delicious. I then mentioned that due to a medical issue I won't be able to eat for a few weeks. The kitchen sent two extra bites from their tasting menu. The crustini was delicious. I then had the beef tenderloin with barley and jus. The jus was so savory and the beef melted in my mouth. Humble barley was the star though. It was a little sweet with a rich meaty flavour. I will definitely be back again and again. More...

Great food, service and ambiance for a date night. Our server was extremely knowledgeable on the wine list and helped us choose our bottle. We started with the tuna tartar which tasted fresh and light. I had the braised bison cheek and my boyfriend had the wild boar loin. We both agreed the bison cheek was the better of the two, likely because it was covered in a delicious sauce and fell apart when eating (but the pork was also good). We will be back for sure.

I find this place so romantic - its something to wait for a reservation date to finally be here and its one thing to enjoy every moment of it - each time I visit this place - it reminds me of a farm where I had the chance to kill for my food and harvest for my desert! Their farm to fork concept with major selection of wine is best paired with the great service I always get when here! More...

I will start off by saying this is a very nice restaurant with delicious food. We were brought delicious fresh baked sour dough and a few other treats from the kitchen. The price is pretty steep, but we did have a great dinner to celebrate our anniversary. The main course is modestly sized and the appetizers comically small (Lobster Tortellini had 5 dime sized pastas!). More...

Food tastes amazing. They'll treat you like a king, almost unnecessarily, they wait on you hand and foot like your the Queen of England or something. Food is honestly amazing though. Best food from a restaurant ever. I got the Sturgeon and my husband got the Pork Belly. Both were amazing. There's a kind of Science to this food that's a really unique experience! So many odd but delicious flavors and textures I've never tried before that you can't even imagine them existing! It's like entering a whole new world of flavor! If only I could afford to eat here. Clearly a place for the rich as the servings are pretty small and everyone's wearing suits and stuff. The only reason I went was because we had a $100 gift card. You'll probably need to spend a lot more than that to get full though. In my opinion the appetizers aren't even worth getting because there's so little food it's literally like a bite for $12. So we got dessert instead of that because it's around the same price but you get a lot more for your money. Also finding parking was kind of hard. I don't think they have a parking lot of their own. The restaurant is set in an old luxerious house with many rooms and it's kind of cool to eat in there. It kind of feels like you enter another era or time period.But it's just so expensive! But sooo good! Probably something you do once because you can't afford to do it a second time. More...

We always chose the tasting menu with premium wine pairing. The staff are professional and attentive, they are experienced and know exactly when to 'swoop in' to serve the next plate and when to interrupt your meal or conversation. I never have to look for someone and never have to ask for attention. More...

I haven't had something that I didn't love. Plus, the care the servers and chefs take into making a special evening that much more special, with little bites here and there to try. You cant go wrong and who doesn't love eating dinner in a beautiful garden with string lights hanging above! More...

Fine dining doesn't get any better than this. My wife and I shared her birthday dinner at Rouge. Natasha was our server, who was SUPER welcoming and very easy to be around. She was very knowledgeable on everything (!). We were pleasantly surprised with the amazing sourdough bread (endless supply), and the craft beer on tap as well (simple tastes here!). The food portions are a little on the smaller side but the flavour made up for it. We will be recommending to friends and visiting ourselves again for special occasions. Go Rouge Go! More...

I never thought I'd eat Brussels sprouts but damn it was good lol . I had the Beef main course And it was definitely worth it. It's best served as med rare by chef standards but the chef made the exception of making it medium for me... it was still perfect. Our server's her name slipped my mind. But all I can say she a sweet blonde girl with long hair. A bit timid at first lol like me but throughout the night opened up. She made my night a wondrful experience .

My husband took me here for my birthday! What a treat.The space is lovely and romantic, as it was once a grand victorian-style home. It's and the staff are all sweet. But the food? Omg. We had the charcuterie board to start; it had the most beautiful spread of cheese and meats and we ate every bit of it. For the mains, I had the lamb and he had the steak. The lamb was inCREDible, and the steak was definitely the best I've ever tried (hubby was kind enough to share a bite). The cocktails and dessert were the perfect bookends to the meal! Every bite of every course was spectacular, and the service was excellent. I can't wait to go back! More...

Awesome food, amazing service. We did the tasting menu and the standard wine pairing... and talked about it for 3 days afterwards. The waiter was fantastic and he taught us about the wine and the historic restaurant. I can't say enough good things, but this would be my 4th tasting menu/wine pairing experience at various restaurants. I would suggest that restuarants of this caliber are not about one plate of "fancy" food (the series of dishes is an experience!), and that you get the tasting menu; and unless you are a sommelier, let the waiter be your guide and get the wine pairings. One of the best touches to this place? Lots of the gorgoeus art on the walls and some pieces are for sale. We'll be back in summer for the seasonal menu!! More...

We celebrated my wife's birthday and they exceeded my expectations with a beautiful birthday desert and card. Would definitely recommend for a romantic night out. More...

I was there for lunch and dinner (on 2 separate dates) in winter and I must say I'm glad I finally found a place that knows what great food tastes like. From the amazing soups to the garden squash ice cream, it was the most delicious I've had in Calgary ever. I have not yet experience the disappointment some peers have felt and written about and hopefully never will. I hardly can believe this would happen.To the sommelier not being the one offering the wine personally, touché. But I'm no connoisseur, so I can't attest to feeling cheated or lacking any crucial information when presented with the wines and I've tried the special dinner with wine for every course. From what I've heard, the sommelier is also the cook (I may have heard wrong), so it makes sense that he would not be present for every pairing.On a side note, be prepared to call a cab home.Pricey? Yes, but considering how much you'd pay at Caesar and how good Rouge tastes, I think it's fair. Plus, they grow their own vegetables.And lastly, best waiters ever. Especially the one who keeps on talking! ;) He knows who he is. More...

A fabulous place with great people and great atmosphere. Thank you for a fabulous 10th Anniversary dinner! Was hoping to run into Paul Rogalski, chef extraordinaire, who we were blessed to have made our weeding meal! 10 years has brought you much success we know - congrats! Hopefully you are with your family as you were too busy back then to enjoy them. Hi Olivier, we hoped we might see you as well but has brought you success as well. You both deserve it and we cherish the memories. See ya in another 10 years. More...

Stu saw a ghost. Stu is now a little cuckoo. Stu is a cute little 76 year old. Stu was scared going to the washroom by itself. Stu identifies as a rice cake. There was no washroom labelled rice cake for Stu. Only women and men labels what about Stu? Diversity rules people and rice cakes. More...

It's a five star experience because the staff are working at a very high standard. The food is amazing, but is made in such a way that the ingredient is not played with too much, so you are aware of what you are eating.The amount of food you get may be small, but the experience and taste is what it is all about. The garden is always interesting and the chef may or may not be around, but he is all about his business and his guests, so say hello if you get a chance.For the culinary students, if you wish to up your career, chef may have a day where you can go in and see just how well you do. The criticism given is a great help, and you never know what may happen from there on. Rouge Restaurant has always had it's standards quite high because the chef has had his fair share of experience in the culinary and business industry. More...

The best Top Grass Beef Tenderloin steak I've ever had and I've had a lot of steaks. Not sure if they have it on the menu anymore but it had bone marrow for flavoring.

Last night we went to your wonderful, award-winning restaurant for our 45th wedding anniversary celebration. As advertised, the food was unsurpassed, our beautiful waitress, Kate, was very attentive and gracious and we had a most enjoyable time. We were told that Rouge used to be the mansion of A.E. Cross, but there was no information of him anywhere, no historical pictures, no word of him on the menu or on any brochure. Although the walls were covered with amazing artwork, there were no pictures of the Cross Mansion or that area of Calgary in its early days. I love Calgary, I love its history. In a restaurant with such a high worldwide rating, it would be nice to have access to its history. We looked it up on Google and found that A.E. Cross, one of the 4 founders of the Calgary Stampede lived there and married the daughter of Col. Macleod who founded Calgary! That's history! I hope you will make this history available to future customers. Thank you for a most enjoyable evening! More...

Update: We were invited back by Rouge Management to experience the Chef's Tasting Menu and Wine Paring. Thank you to the management, chefs and servers. The food was superb and the service was friendly and professional. Original rating = 2 starts January 2, 2016. There are many great reviews for this restaurant and that is why we chose it to celebrate 2 family birthdays at Rouge. Unfortunately, the food served in the "Chef's Tasting" last night was not at all up to our expectations. The dishes were not flavourful and many ingredients were repeated in one dish to the next.

I find rouge to be a bit of a funny restaurant. Before we went there, family and friends warned us it was quite pretentious. Which, depending on your outlook could be true however, we found the wait staff outgoing and friendly, and genuinely concerned that we left having a delightful culinary treat! A great experience and excellent value. More...

I highly recommend the chef's menu. (And the amazing wine pairings if you can handle that much alcohol.) This place was first-class. Amazing atmosphere, service, and food. We went for our 10th anniversary dinner. It was absolutely mind-blowingly fantastic. Thank you. More...

A delicious epicurean experience of 6 courses crafted with creativity and precision. This was accompanied by an intriguing wine bouquet as well as excellent service befitting of classic French-style cuisine. Perhaps the most satisfying meal I've enjoyed. I will most certainly return eager for more. More...

Bistro Rouge is a terrific new dinning experience in the west end of the city. It is without question the best and most flavourful dining west of the Sarcee Trail.

The ONLY thing to do if you go here is order the chef's multi course meal. PERIOD That's what this place is all about. If you don't want that, then go to Earls, or SaltLick or something. It is VERY expensive, but the meal I had there with the wine pairings was one of the best I've EVER had ANYWHERE, and I've been a few places.If you don't like "surprises" and are a picky eater, what're you doing at Rouge?

Did not try their tasting menu, the price tag is a bit too high. $110 per person, which is ironically about the same as our dinner + liquor for 2 people.I would consider this place a must try for everybody, as they provide a very enjoyable dinning experience. More...
