Excellent food for the four of us. Four different dishes, four excellent meals. Two had desserts and enjoyed them. Service was good, but somewhat on the slow side; however the server did apologize for it.

We've been to Rouge twice. Amazing ambience in a sweet historic former home in Inglewood. The servers are top notch! Whether you're seated inside or out, it's comfortable with good spacing between tables. I would definitely recommend sitting outside during the summer as the patio...More

We celebrated a birthday with the chefs tasting menu here. Everything was good but unfortunately nothing was excellent. At a restaurant like this I always expect a little more of an experience. For example... The service was pleasant and everyone was attentive to our drink...More
