This place is definitely closed and has a For Rent sign in the front.
Do not come here for dinner. A friend and I came in on a Saturday night - place was practically empty. We ordered burgers, both of which were seasoned poorly and severely undercooked and raw. We both got spaghetti instead after we sent back the burgers (to which the waiter was visibly annoyed) which was underwhelming and practically tasteless. Also my soda was a whopping $5. Really? And their receipt had the nerve to suggest tips between 20-24%? Unbelievable. I also saw the waiter bring out the salmon filet for another table, which comes ungarnished and looked very bland. Will never be back- do not come here for dinner. There's a reason it's so empty on a Saturday night.
Came here with groupon, the groupon deal was 75 dollars to spend for two on dinner, but instead the owner insisted it's 75% off when you spend 100. And you can only order a selected few items from the menu if you use groupon. Out of all fairness, the food we ordered was good, however you should honor what you advertise.
One of the worst spots of NYC! We had Groupon that included certain dishes and drinks. We ordered according to our deal, but the staff was extremely reluctant to bring out all that we ordered (we had to remind them twice that we were short of dishes). The food was less than ok. It felt that everything was pre-cooked and heated up (at best) or, straight out of cans (or maybe from a frozen section of a supermarket) - certainly nothing French! In the end, we were asked to pay tax and tips, which we did, but one week later, we saw that our credit card was charged $126 (instead of $30). Tried to resolve but restaurant did not respond. BEWARE - They are crooks and thieves!!!
You guys - this was so so so bad. Got the groupon; came for the ceviche I saw on the menu online. No such thing once we got there - just canned olives, stale baguette and it's hard to make merguez inedible but they managed. The waiter apologetically offered a glass of wine on the house (normally $15!!) which was sweet - I'm guessing he must be used to it. I wouldn't be so angry if it wasn't SO expensive and disrespectfully shitty. CANNED OLIVES???? My theory is that Groupon victims are subject to a special menu..... Full disclosure: I'm french and VERY upset.
We ate here last week again. About a month or so ago we had lunch here. I wish I could give ROUGE a higher rating. Both times our servers couldn't have been nicer. They made our visit. This last time she recommended a Happy Hour wine which was one of the best we've ever had at a Happy Hour. One of the other reviewers mentioned stale bread. At our lunch also the bread was stale. Not good for a restaurant that calls itself French. I like the way the whole place opens up to the street. I had the Rack of Lamb which was very good. Our one appetizer (I've forgotten it's name) were cheese filled something or other. There were 3 of them and 1 did not have any cheese in it. Now here's the real rub. Both times our meals were extremely slow in coming to us. We're not fast eaters or hurried customers. We don't mind sitting for several hours and talking and drinking and eating. But at lunch we had to wait an hour because the chef had not even arrived yet! This was at 1pm. At dinner last week there were only 4 people including us in the whole place but it was an hour before we received our appetizers. I don't know what this place would do if all the tables were filled. I believe the owner/manager was there. The chef came out of the kitchen several times with food to be photographed by a photographer. And then what appeared to be some PR people showed up who the manager and chef also spent time talking with. It would have been nice for the chef to stop by our table and ask how things were. The waitress did. At our lunch we were the only people in the place. They apologized for the wait both times but they could have given us a glass of wine or something or just poured a bit more or, even more importantly, made actual paying customers a priority for service rather than PR people and a photographer.
Had dinner here recently with some friends who found it through Groupon. The food and wine were great. We started off with appetizers of cheese, fruit, nuts. Additionally, my friends and I shared some fois gras, which I had never had before. It was very rich and creamy. Then I had the Rouge's Salad which was my favorite of the night. It had lots of perfectly cooked seafood and also a serving of foie gras. For dinner I had the Lobster Risotto which was very dense and cheesy. I was different than I expected but still good. The owner/manager Izabella was amazing. A Sommelier, she paired all of the food perfectly with her unique selection of organic-only wines. She was also funny, sweet and charming and made us feel right at home.
There really is nothing French this restaurant. The decor and ambiance are okay but the food is nothing to rave about. The Crispy Salmon with risotto was kinda of a joke. The portions were beyond small and the rice was just dense and dry. The grains were clearly not arborio rice. The ceviche was just boring and probably 1 week old. The only saving grace was the service who were pleasant and courteous. Maybe grab a drink but skip the food.
Jules is probably fucking her boyfriend while doing coke off his tiny dick. Shes a dirty spick
A gem in the Lower East Side. Beautiful ambience and a most welcoming and enthusiastic hostess and co-owner Izabella. The second restaurant of her and husband Sophien (La Terrasse of Miami), Rouge NYC offers ALL ORGANIC French wines, including some vintage varieties (best of the base grape). The Saint Joseph Syrah from Domaine des Miquettes is a 'stepping out' from the woods onto a precipice. The Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay from Romuald Petit is a like a 'first kiss'. Honestly the best Chardonnay I've ever tasted. It's an experience. We arrived too late to try the food but the menu sounds amazing - a wide variety of ceviches, sophisticated appetizers like foie gras, and delicate homemade desserts like Panna cotta. We will be back - very soon!!
Stopped in for a drink on Saturday night. Beautiful interior and warm service- definitely perfect for a girls night. Didn't have the food but everything looks great! Will be back soon!
Been to Rouge a few times now but haven't done private / VIP. Are extra's available ?
Looking for jewels, the blonde? Used to have a great time with her in rooms at Goldfingers, but she gave me an old number is she here?

Oh shit, I meet her too. I thought it was the garbage from downstairs. Then I realized when I saw the bartenders face after she gave her a hug. Vomit in mouth syndrome.
Can we bubble that smell? Damn! what happened to showering before work... had to hold my breath and run for the exit.
@Maddison. If only you had used better grammar that lie would be a great cover for maternity leave. Hope all is well with you and the soon to be baby daddy. Congratulations again, hoped you liked the present.
Hi I'm coming back in the beginning of next year, finishing school! :)

What happened to Maddison?
this club really went down and sucks now
I had a great time.The place is cool.
Where are illegal aliens supposed to work now? you are taking jobs away from single mothers from South, Central America and Mexico. less remittances to send back. I'm so sad for the day laborers. they will have to stay in the ghetto they've created in Jackson Heights and Corona. They will have to get drunk and walk around. You horrible Americans discriminating again against illegal aliens.
had great time over the weekend more of a mix off girls not just russians
Had a good time.Good prices.Beautiful girls. Had a good time.Good prices.Beautiful girls.
i went there monday got a dance from amanda beautiful had a great time with her
they got that stupid rule but they pretend they dont.
I checked this place out about year and half ago or two years ago... was looking for a second good lap dance club. At that time they had the "one foot on the floor" rule where the girls must keep one foot on the floor while lap dancing. That sucks. I did not get a lap dance. Now a friend told me I was wrong, they don't have this rule. Was I wrong? Can someone tell me if I am or was mistaken. Or has things changed? I want to come back if they dont have that "one leg on floor rule? LET ME KNOW!
Posh blonde Ella simply the best!
Sucks!! Gerald your a racist!!! Stop the fucking Russian clan.

Is there a Russian girl named Anna that works there? She used to work at Cafe Royal Thursday and Friday afternoons.
to lone wolf i always do
Just Wondering - Thanks for the info, Most clubs are a bit hit or miss. I will try it again. They have $5 drinks on Sunday night which I think is to cool. When I went it was crowded, not enough dancers, the dancers that were there came of the stage to often for tips. Once a set is OK and very fair, 3, 4, 5 starts to get costly and make me hide my money.
to lonewolf's review you must have gone on a of night. i went last night. It was a bit crouded but the dancers ran the range.There was a Jamacan a few african american, several oriental (maybe Phillipian or Malyasion), some russian, as well as many home grown white american dancers.There styles ran from quiet patite to goth (she really worked the stage) 90% hot. A lady for all taste. As for the lap dacnes 1 was ok 1 was good and 1 was O MY GOOD. I still they should be 20 instead of 25, I might have gone for a fourth. All in all a nice place low pressure freindly staff. And this review was done totally sober.
Any cute latin girls here? or are they all Russian?
about how long are the songs for the lap dances. I am hearing good things about this place but alittle pricey? But if you have a good time who cares about money.
Just to let you guys know xxx porn star nikki hunter will be performing live deceber 15, 16, 17!! come join us for the hottest holiday festivities in upscale entertainment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Went here for the first time to see Austyn Moore, she was good. Club was nice, girls were good and not too pushy for dances. Had a nice time with Noel. They had a 2-1 lap dances around 11:00 which was good.
