“Very Good but Could Be Better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Had lunch on a busy Saturday. Waiter was very helpful and gave opinions when asked. Loved the shrimp spring rolls with chili sauce. Loved the wine waiter recommended. Salads were too wet and mine was missing cheese. My companion asked for no cheese but I didn't and salad was blah without. At that point our attentive waiter was MIA so I didn't send it back. Dessert, a blackberry peach cobbler was divine and the coffee us great but came well after dessert and we had to ask another waiter for it. Enough yummy that I might return but....

“Nice and under-rated brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

After trying to get into Parc, just half a block away, we got a nice table at Rouge and were very happy with the service, food choices and the 1/2 priced wine. The coffee never stopped coming, the biscuits were to die for, and the quiche and egg benedict were amazing.

“Perfect spot for a late summer lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Great view overlooking Rittenhouse Square. Had the spicy duck soup and seared ahi tuna sandwhich. Excellent flavor in both. Very attentive service, not overly pushy but there when we needed service. Atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommended.

“Superb lunch at Rouge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Our table with a view of Rittenhouse Square made for a perfect summer lunch: glass of Prosecco; light and delicious salad with crab, citrus, avocado and greens; vanilla gelato and chocolate sorbet (what a combination!). My husband loved the watermelon gazpacho he ordered too. Service was also very pleasant. Really wonderful in every way. Not inexpensive but very memorable.
