Chef's tasting menu was poor value, many components of multiple dishes were not harmonious. When the cheese course is the best course, you know there's a problem! Too many something-and-bread courses. While execution of the dishes was mostly acceptable (except for the short rib/pasta), the flavours were not appealing and too little texture was present from beginning to end. The foie gras dish was mushy and boring with too much of a similar tart component (jelly and some other unidentifiable thing on the plate) and the main was very skimpy on meat. The dessert was an afterthought and better not served. Service was fine. Would not return based on food alone.

We went for our first wedding anniversary. The service was good, food was amazing, and it was nice eating in a heritage house with plenty of history. The food presentation and quality was very well done.

Great evening with delicious food and great service! Hadn’t been Rouge for a few years and it is brighter and such a beautiful location. They were easily able to cater to a Celiac member of the party including bread and butter at the beginning of the meal.

My wife and I got married at Rouge one year ago today, and we came back to celebrate. We ordered the 6 course dinner and were impressed with each course. Great service, ambience and flavour.

It is a wonderful restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was superb as well. I thought the ambiance was quiet, perhaps too quiet, as this is an old house and the tables are scattered over several of the original rooms. But it is a beautiful house and a most wonderful restaurant. Highly recommended.

Date night with my lady. First time at Rouge and I would recommend it to all. Fresh food, vegetables grown in their own garden. Chef trying no combinations. Amazing and the staff know their menu and wine listing.

The Hor's D'oevres were very good. The lamb dish was not up to an expected standard for the cost. Limited number of small morsels. The menu could be more extensive...chicken option would be nice.
Your entrance to the restaurant needs some work.

Knowledgeable friendly server who spent just the right amount of time with us. The food here is beautiful - to look at and to eat. The palette teasers from the kitchen were amazing and those caramels at the end!!!!! Wow! Well done, Rouge! Until next time.

Amazing formal dining experience. This is my favourite restaurant for celebrations and taking out business colleagues when they are in town. The food is incomparable to anything else I have had, Chef's skill with preparation takes even dishes I do not like and turns them into unbeatable experiences.

Lovely location for a special lunch. Service very attentive. Found the food a bit salty- May have been the cheese on the mushroom toast and the gnocchi dish. Shrimp was very good , loved the fennel in it. Free Parking hard to find- paid for street parking.

Rouge rarely disappoints. I often host both social and business lunches there because the food is almost always excellent, the service is great, and it is possible to have a conversation. Located in an lovely old house with small rooms, it feels elegant with linen tablecloths and napkins, monogrammed silverware, and polished serving staff, and the garden patio is gorgeous in the summer months. Rouge is situated in a pretty, quiet spot which affords quick access to a major road and free parking is usually available at a lot across the street. Rouge at lunch provides a little luxury at a reasonable price.

Our server was awesome, I would have liked a table not in view of the people coming in the front door, it wasn't that full. The food, as always, is fantastic. Full of explosions of flavor and little surprises and it always is friendly and welcoming.

Overall, an average experience. After hearing about how great it as, it disappointed a bit. Food was good, menu full of safe choices, great in list. Ambiance disappointing as we sat in the tent out back (had a spider crawl up the tablecloth on to the table). I think there are more interesting places for this price point.

If someone invited me back, I would go but would not make a point of returning.
