Rush Ocean Prime - Lounge

A reflection of Alberta's signature hospitality, Rush Ocean Prime's downtown location occupies a large space in what was once Calgary's main post office, a magnificent building modernized. With a new look, new menu, and new attitude, the new Rush relaxes downtown dining with a bold, brash and evolved offer. Rush aims to surprise guests with inventive, globally inspired food from land to sea. Generous portions of steak and seafood are served up alongside sommelier selected wines and handcrafted cocktails. From the attentive service to the open, contemporary space, Rush sets the stage for memorable every-day encounters – whether it is a coveted spot in the lavish dining room or shared small plates and drinks in the lounge after work.

"Given it's a bit farther for me to walk, I forget about how nice Rush is to visit. The tables are spacious and spaced nicely so you don't feel like you are sitting "with" the people next to you. The food is excellent, creative, and with the daily special, lunch is well within the reasonable range. I will be getting there more often now that the weather has improved."

"Server was FANTASTIC. Food was awesome, wine list was deep and reasonably priced.
Steak was done perfectly and even the garnish on the plate tasted delightful.
Glad we went, and will be back again for sure.

"There wasn't very many seafood selections on the menu, strange for a place called "Ocean Prime".
I ended up ordering the steak medium rare and it came out well done. A high end place like this shouldn't mess a steak up.
Service was great! Place was beautiful! The food however was lacking big time..."

"I have been to this restaurant many times and wonder if the quality of food and service might be getting worse. after our main courses arrived before our starters we were told that we would get new mains and one course would be taken off of the bill. Nothing was actually taken off the bill, and when the mains came back out they were a bit cold. Waited a very long time for the final course, to the point where we nearly left. Service was extremely slow generally. I like the restaurant, including the ambiance, but quality of food and service need to be picked up."

"Great place for a business lunch. Service of the drinks and appetizers was very fast. Took a while to get our main courses and dessert. Food was very good! I had the 3 course lunch which was a better value. Hope to go back!"
