Had a Rouge burger with fries. Very good and tasty. Service left a bit to be desired and it appears the waitress was too thinly spread to promptly attend to all the tables she served. I will certainly go back. Thanks guys.

Really a delightful lunch sitting at the bar. Seems a mix of visitors and locals. Absolutely tasty ( and gooey) burgers. Shared both the beef burgers offered. Apparently the”Rouge” is their signature burger. Very generous and perfectly cooked. Good fries as well. Lovely wine. Good...More

Walking about, when hunger struck by Rittenhouse Square. Stopped at the Rouge and got the last open table. Basic bar food served in a nice setting by a professional staff. Will explore other restaurants in the area.

Lunch was pretty average, burger and salad. It seemed to take a really long time to get our food. We did greatly enjoy the table in the window - perfect in nice weather for people watching. Probably won't return.

Really great food, in a cool setting. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the world go by. Staff were very helpful, and the menu had plenty of yummy choices.

We had one of the best meals anyone could remember. Huge juicy scallops, spicy salmon, and the flour less chocolate cake for dessert was to die for!!! Carl was the kindest, most polite and attentive waiter we have had in years.

We were lucky to get a table outside overlooking the park. I had a fantastic cocktail made with vodka, lemonade, and cayenne pepper. I loved it so much that I had 2 of them. The tilapia tacos were outstanding as well as my husband's Rouge...More

We stopped in for a late night dinner and had delicious fish tacos and split a hamburger. The burger was big enough for 2 women and was loaded with goodies. We couldn't sit outside - too busy, but inside was nice too. A bit pricey,...More
