Known for classic burgers, this American eatery offers sidewalk seating for ample people-watching.- Google
"Finally, the steak was topped with an herb butter in a red wine sauce."
"One of the better people watching spots in the city."

Very cute restaurant in Rittenhouse Square. Has the European seating on the sidewalk so that diners can face the street. Inside, it's very glamorous - plush velvet seats, a large chandelier lighting up the bar that's in the center of the room. I recommend ordering the korean bbq spring rolls, the duck salad, and the scallops.

Location and buzz are better than the food. Love Rouge on a good night. Service is hit or miss depending on staff attentiveness. One night we received the red carpet treatment. The next night our waiter failed to bring ketchup for our fries as an appetizer and forgot our burger for an hour and then blamed it on us, that we didn't tell him what temperature we wanted it, so he hadn't put the order in. Nothing else left to say. I left hungry

Terribly over rated. If you want great food in a similar style go to Smoking Bettie's down near Jefferson. This place is for "kids" to come get drunk, socialize and enjoy food that fits the occasion. I wouldn't come back with so many other better options close by. We ordered the Rouge Burger and the Soft Crab both dishes were mediocre at best. If you want a good burger go to Monk or Smoking Bettie's roughly half the cost and twice as delicious.

A petit cozy restaurant, took my girlfriend out here for a nice dinner. A bit crowded, because the place is physically small, but still a comfortable place. A little loud, but an active environment. Great service, made reservations, was immediately seated, our jackets we checked by our waitress. You are in close quarters with the other dining patrons, but I didn't feel claustrophobic. Food was brought out fairly quickly after ordering. My girlfriend had the steak and fries, while I had the pork loin. I tried some of hers, it was cooked appropriately and tasted delicious. My pork loin was very satisfying as well. Very good portion size, and the meat was juicy and tender. We decided to order dessert, I had the pumpkin crem brulee, which was average. It was cold, which means it was probably not recently prepared, the taste was what I expected, but i wish it had been creamier, and less pumpkin-pie like texture. (I'm a big crem brulee fan). But I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an intimate dinner for 2, or for a small group of 3-4 close friends.

Liked the burgers, the place is a bit pricey. This is about going to a hip place where you can see and be seen. The food is ok but nothing to write ho0me about.

Was at Rouge today with a friend. We got 2 cappuccinos and where charged $10.80. Mind you the cappuccinos cost $4 each. So the total should have been $8.84. Not only did she overcharge us but she said that they round up the price to be $1.20 more, making the total $12 for 2 cappuccinos. Totally unheard of. She never gave us a receipt either. Be careful you don't get played like we did. Really disappointed!!!!!!

The chocolate chip bread pudding was good, but not great. I had to send the first dish back because it was burnt. The second dish was much softer, but I am very particular about my bread pudding, so I was not in love. It was a very generous portion and the service was excellent-maybe too good-I lost count of how many different staff members came by to check on me. I will definitely return to try other dishes on the menu, and it is on my list for bread pudding places in the city.
