“On a downward spiral”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Have frequented this restaurant on many occasions and have to say that the decor is very tired looking and the service and food are not what they used to be. We thought it had gone down hill on previous occasion but thought we would give it another try. There was no improvement (in fact it was worse this time) so we certainly won't be going back in a hurry.

“Formulaic but enjoyable”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We've been here several times and always enjoyed it. The food is well prepared and it has an interesting menu. Of course all Cafe Rouge's are pretty much the same but I find the Solihull branch better than most. It has a lively atmosphere and nice ambiance.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Was there for lunch recently and as usual it was extremely noisy and busy. We did not have to wait long to order but did have a long wait for our food and drinks. I ordered salmon salad and specifically said no olives but when it finally arrived it had olives but no new potatoes as specified in the menu. The salmon was nicely cooked with a good salad. Our waitress did not bother to come back to us to see if everything was alright and trying to catch her attention to complain was impossible, we were just ignored. So when the bill arrived (it is expensive for what you get) and I then complained, the waitress just said oh yes sorry there should have been new potatoes, basically could not have cared less. The place could do with a good overhaul and clean up, the toilets are a disgrace.

“Gone off the boil!!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

A very ordinary experience and not as good as it used to be. The staff are surly and when I ordered some tap water I thought for a moment I would be refused. Food average, two chicken baguettes and fries.

Other Café Rouges better than my local.

“Saturday Luncheon Visit”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Busy Saturday Lunchtime. All the staff moving around and very helpful and attentive. The Luncheon was nicely cooked and satisfied our requirements more than amply.
