“Consistent and excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

We live in Grand Junction and have been patrons of this restaurant for ten years. We are never disappointed with the high quality of food and service.
The french bread is baked on-site and offers a memorable accompaniment to any meal, large or small.
We enjoy eating at the bar. The bar has intimate, atmospheric lighting with it's little red silk lamps... hope they never change them. When soft jazz is playing, the mood is nicely enhanced and conversation still possible....
The well-crafted cocktails at Le Rouge make people feel good...... the beautiful lighting makes people look good....No wonder its our favorite!

“Expensive for quality of food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

Tables way too small for two people. We had calamari, crab cakes and goat cheese salad. Food was pretty good, but too expensive for what you get.

“Wonderful restaurant-great food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Le Rouge. I had ordered the venison in Hunter's sauce and was totally impressed by how tender and moist the venison had been. Also, it lacked the usual "gamey" flavor that venison can have. The service was quick and friendly, especially by chef/owner Patric.
We were disappointed that there was no live music the evening we were there. However, our dinner was so incredibly good, it was music to our taste buds. For a special night out, this is the place to go.

“a bit disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

Long wait and we should have looked at the menu before being seated, yikes. Pricey and the only simple option was a burger. I got the salmon which was nice, but overpriced. I hear the lunches are a better deal.

“I loved this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

I went to this place once in the evening and once late in the evening. Both times they had a really great musical group on the patio. The guitarist has made a CD titled: "Coffee House Blues" and 2 other CDs. The one I heard was remarkable. His band previously, played in Iceland, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, and that place where the people have bad teeth and drink warm beer. The nights I was there, the musicians played requests from Gershwin, and Perry Como; plus music from Alison Krauss, Fleetwood Mac, Beatles, to Metallica. I didn't get any drinks with alcohol, so I can't speak for the drinks. Everyone else seemed to be fine with their drinks. I only ate an appetizer and mostly stayed on the patio with the live very high quality music. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was wonderful. There was no problems at all with my service dog, most customers wanted to pet her. She ate it up. I would rate this place, with my limited experience there, between excellent and very good, but tripadvisor does not have such a rating.
