I was here recently but just for a drink outside on a beautiful day. I have eaten here before but that was a while back. I remember the food to be good. This review is about a fantastic spot to sit and watch the citizens of Philadelphia. During off hours there nothing better.

Wonderful food. Are at the bar. Tommy was our bartender. Made a fantastic martini. A definite place to revisit. Host was a little unfriendly, but overall experience was great.

Excellent restaurant on a very hip street and area. Great park across the street. Has tables outside where the food and the people watching go hand in hand

This place was really good. The atmosphere was so inviting and the people were also really nice. The food was excellent and the portions were huge. It is a must go to when in Philly. Tip, need to make a reservation, not easy to get into.

Walking into this establishment is like walking into a romantic restaurant in France. The outside seating leads into the indoor which is flanked with beautiful silk curtains around each of the walls and old patina mirrors that reflect the Rittenhouse Square on the inside. The bar is A tiny little bar with great service at all times. The food is... More

When we stepped through the door we were greeted by the friendly hostess. We had read the reviews in advance and had been intrigued. Everyone loved their entrees, they were cooked to perfection. Two friends ordered the salmon which was served over spicy root vegetables, another got fish tacos, another got the rouge burger. For dessert we shared the special... More

This restaurant is small but not intimate, which is good for business purposes. The food was good but not outstanding in any aspect: presentation, preparation and taste. The décor is conservative and provides a good level of comfort. The price is adequate for what you get.

We had an indoor table seated next to the open window with a view to lovely Rittenhouse Square Park. The cocktails were absolutely fabulous; my compliments to the bartender. The Blood Orange Margarita was outstanding, as was the Kentucky Mule in a cold copper mug. The pumpkin cinnamon roll with ice cream was a scrumptious dessert which paired perfectly with... More

European style sidewalk cafe. I had the Tilapia Tacos and my husband had the Waldorf Chicken salad croissant and a salad. Food tasted fresh. Service was fast and good.

Rouge is a very attractive restaurant seating about 50 and open for lunch and dinner. Different menus for each with lower priced lunches. Try their famous ROUGE BURGER
