My fiance and I just came for drinks after work and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. If you are in the area you should definitely drop by to see Sonia and her team!

Just left work and you and your friend want a chill dinner? Perfect place. Sonia and the team have been great! Tasty Burger and cosy vibes.

Gutted ! After my last review of my regular go-to restaurant where I praised it high last time out, after previously poor reviews on Service, I called in tonight to find that they no longer offer Leffe beer on draft. Bought Leffe by the bottle instead. Price £5.15 for a small bottle. When you add on 'optional' Service Charge, that works out at £11.59 a pint !

And now to the food. Most disappointing meal I have had here. Ordered the Confit Duck. Duck undercooked, Potato Dauphinoise overcooked and dry, Tender Stem Broccoli cold.

Appears to be new set of staff.OK I appreciate staff turnover in London is high but would expect owners of Cafe Rouge, the CDG Group, to ensure some level of consistently and service.

I would welcome someone from the owners to contact me to discuss further. You have a good product with Cafe Rouge, but are letting your business down with inconsistency.

Seriously, £11.58 a pint of beer in a chain restaurant aimed at a mid level budget market, with no option of draught ?

Went to this branch of cafe rouge with a friend and our two almost teen aged children,the moment we stepped in we felt that the waitress was not happy with us as we requested to seat at a table that was slightly larger than the one the waitress had chosen for us,she then took our order which arrived with items missing from the dish and as described on the menu,it was then a task in itself to try and get the attention of staff to try and solve the issue,when finally the waitress decided to respond to us it took so long for the missing items from my fiends dish to arrive that she had finished her meal,i also had to get up from my table to go and ask another member of staff for an alternative to cows milk and what i got in response was a shrug of the shoulders and an obrupt no,needless to say... very disappointed

I haven’t been to a Cafe Rouge for many years. It used to be a favourite. The experience was very disappointing. The food is overpriced and very average and portions (of fries & beans) were very small. My sirloin steak was full of gristle and the pepper sauce too watery. Cafe Rouge should offer simple quality French cooking. The quality is missing. The service was poor. Their excuse ‘the kitchen is busy’. They need to sharpen up their act and drop their prices which are a rip-off for what is on offer. I’ll give it another few years before I come again!
