We recently had a big meal in a private room here. It's been 10 years since I last visited Rouge restaurant, I really don't know what to expect, because Rouge restaurant has been in business for a while, and sometimes the restaurant gets a little bit off in terms of food, service, or both (at the beginning). We are very satisfied with the food and service. The waiting staff are attentive and not bossy, they let the food speak for themselves, without much intrusion. Every dish was delicious and very good, and overall, the whole team thought it was a wonderful experience!
The environment of the restaurant is very good, I really like it, and the dishes here are really delicious, the taste is particularly good, and the price is relatively moderate, I especially recommend his shrimp and the Wellington steak, which tastes really good Extremely!
We had a thoroughly spectacular meal for my spouse's graduation from UCalgary. We did the feature menu, and while not cheap, did tantalize the taste buds. Probably one of the best meals I have ever had in all of Alberta! Thank you to Olivier and team! Wonderful! We shall be back! The service and food was take your breath away quality!
The bottom line is: you'll experience amazing fine dining without the associated overpriced food and drinks. We had an incredible experience here the first time, and have been going back ever since. The dishes are always so beautifully prepared. The dishes are so complex you need to take a bit of everything to fully experience it. The staff is always very professional and polite. They provide a very very reasonable lunch during the week. You won't find a dish so intricately prepared anywhere else in Calgary for $18. So at that price, you might as well order an appetizer and have a more wholesome experience. The seasonal cheesecakes are always delicious.
As a group of eight we were given a choice of inside or outside. The staff were friendly and very proud of the local produce they cooked with including vegetables and herbs from the property. Lamb dish was excellent and they accommodated dietary restrictions with ease. Good evening had by all.
Why is this restaurant rated so lowly on TA? The other restaurants in Calgary must be spectacular if this is not in the top 20! We went as a group and at short notice due to a change in travel plans for part of the group. It was a catch up of friends for the first time in many years and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves A balanced menu supported by an extensive wine list with wine prices to support most pockets The restaurant has indoor and outdoor areas and if outdoors you can gaze out into the vegetable patch and garden. The staff are knowledgeable and proud of the wine and food that they serve. Perhaps they could come across as a bit stiff but by the end of the night they were more relaxed (could have been the wine we had been drinking...) Not a bad meal among the various plates that we had Perhaps one thing - lose the plastic outdoor chairs.
