                                      A good restaurant for a casual meal. The food was good, service a little slow and my salad (and our drinks) arrived after the main course had been served. It wasn't busy, so not sure why the service was a bit off. They were polite and quick to remedy it.

                                      Typical Cafe Rouge fayre. Good food at reasonable prices. Nice waterside location within sight of the tube station but away from the maddening crowd. Unfortunately we waited over 45 mins for our main course due to staff chatting in a corner and the chef being outside having a cigarette. This was rectified and we were given a substantial discount on our meal so all was well in the end.

                                      It was a hot and sunny (but very windy) Saturday lunchtime and we sat outside. There were only a few waiters covering the outside are and inside the restaurant, so it was under-staffed and service was poor. This was not the fault of the waietrs. The set menu at £12.95 is good value and the Bon Rouge cocktails are good.

                                      Woeful service, waited an hour for food which was mediocre at best. Not good enough. If you offer a lunchtime service please be able to serve in a timely manner and dont have the audacity to add service to the bill.

                                      I booked a table for 18 people. I phoned to confirm on the prior day, primarily to arrange 4 high chairs. When we turned up they didn't have the booking. They were able to accommodate us as the place was quite empty. We did not get 4 functional chairs (i.e. with fully functional straps). I wouldn't risk it again for a large booking, we could easily have been turned away if they were busy.

                                      We were visiting from the US and wanted to find a place not too far from the Excel Center center and this was perfect. The food was great and the prices were affordable.

                                      Normally I have nothing but glowing reports for this Cafe Rouge but I have some criticism on this occasion. We had to wait over half an hour to receive the menus at our table (other diners were seated and had their starters in this time) another 15 minutes to get our drinks ordered (I actually went to the bar myself) and then around another 10 minutes to order our food ( again, I got up and asked the waiter to come to take our order). Our usual, lovely waitress took over at this point and from this point we received the usual good service and food. Shame about the first hour or so.

                                      My daughter and I had lunch last Friday at Cafe Rouge in Canary Wharf. As were both working, it was just a quick lunch. The food was very good - freshly cooked and well presented and the service from our waitress was very friendly and efficient. Although Cafe Rouge is a chain, the one in Canary Wharf is particularly good. It also has the advantage of outside seating right by the river so is a lovely place to be in the evenings or at the weekend when time is not of the essence and the experience is much more relaxing. I would certainly recommend it!

                                      Again a great meal, good food and service is very friendly and efficient. The ambience on a Saturday is very quiet but then so is the rest of Canary Wharf. Good for a chain restaurant. Would recommend!

                                      Nice Saturday lunch. Food was good quality and like the fact that it was a bit off the main square so not busy inside. Even tried snails which were ok. Would go back especially for the waterside location.

                                      I was meeting friends before a concert and we chose Cafe Rouge because we know it well. The food is always good - you know the quality will be acceptable in whichever one you go to. The trouble with this one is that it is a major watering hole for office workers on a Friday Night. This is obviously very good for the restaurant - but not so good if you want a reasonably quiet or medium busy restaurant. The hub bub was extreme.

                                      This was my first time in the Canary Wharf branch. After mediocre experiences in other Cafe Rouge branches I was a bit wary to book this one, but it was excellent. Our French waitress was lovely, the service was great, quick, efficient and with a smile. The food was good and the location at the waterfront is great. Shame it rained cats and dogs when we were there, but I'm sure I'll go back in summer.

                                      Cafe Rouge managed to fit in our party of 15 at very short notice as we were let down by another restaurant. Food was good and service efficient.
