When I'm driving the 2.5 hours up to my family house in the Berkshires on a Friday night, my eye is on one prize: make it to Rouge before the kitchen closes for the night (without getting nabbed by the state boys lying in wait on the Taconic). Walking in means a quick greeting from Maggie, owner and hostess of... More

We made a reservation for a group visiting with us on a recent weekend evening. Thought it would be a wonderful dining experience based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews. However, we got the treatment that the few negative reviews had mentioned. Greeted by "Madame" we were told we were late for our reservation. We were within a 2 minute window... More

We have had a home in The Berkshires for 10 years and Rouge is our very favorite restaurant! Maggie and the staff are always friendly, kind and welcoming. The food is scrumptious, the wine excellent, the cocktails terrific. It is always a delightful celebration to go!

We have been coming to Rouge for the last two years since buying a house in the area and Rouge is our absolute favorite!! As soon as you enter this charming gem of a restaurant, the owner, Maggie, always greets us with the warmest of welcomes. The drinks are always good and the food is imaginative and delicious.

We visited Rouge at the last weekend of the summer season, hectic in the Berkshires so we go more frequently in the non Tanglewood months, September to June. The drinks, hors d'oeuvre, dinner and dessert were so very good as expected. The atmosphere buzzed but the staff were attuned to our orders...and the fried olives, a favorite, caught the attention...

Do not go! The owner is rude and dismissive. The food was mediocre and we waiting 30 minutes to even order. There are many fine restaurants in the Berkshires where your business is appreciated and you are treated to a nice dining experience. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!

Rouge bistro in West Stockbridge is a gem in the Berkshires. Excellent food and service-what else is there to say. Prices are not outrageous for the Berkshires in summer-around $30-$32 for entrees. Have had steak au poivre and the rack of lab in the past-both excellent. You may want to make a reservation, especially after a performance at Tanglewood because... More

Outstanding dining experience. Table for 3 in bar area. A bit noisy but feeling of energy, not unpleasant. Everything we had was excellent. Main courses were rack of lamb, pork ribs, and veal chop with outstanding vegetables, all superb. Excellent bottle of a moderately priced Spanish wine. Last here several years ago. Has improved with age. Best restaurant in Tanglewood... More

I have been going to Rouge since it opened thirteen years ago. Without question, it has the claim of being the best restaurant in Berkshire County. The food is imaginative and magnificently prepared, not to mention fabulously delicious. I highly recommend the duck soup. It is, without question, the most interesting and tasteful recipe for duck I have ever tasted.... More

We have come for dinner at Rouge about ten times a year (mostly in summer) for the past ten years.We have come as a couple, or just one of us, or with friends, and we have always received a warm welcome . We have eaten a great many variety of this restaurant's dishes so we can truly claim to be... More
