As a regular customer to Cafe Rouge over the years recently I have visited the Hitchin restaurant over the last few months about 4 times.
I have found the service from the same waiter extremely poor. No polite greeting of 'good morning' , just ''what would you like?''. This is basic courtesy and good manners. On the last occasion last week I was made to wait 12 minutes before the same waiter got to my table. He made no effort to communicate and just stood waiting for me to speak to him.
Unacceptable Cafe Rouge Hitchin ....
I love the ambience and the vibe of Cafe Rouge as a chain, it can't be beaten.

Both of us had the fillet steak with frites for lunch. Had the steak medium well and was at first difficult to cut. After cutting into strips thankfully it wasnt as tough as I expected. Great flavour especially with the garlic sauce. Frites were a little salty but not too bad. They were crisp and cooked nicely. Cafe rouge interior was nice, authentic. Waiting time was long for quantity of guests, but wasn't in a rush. Servers were chatting when dirty plates were on tables. However they were very friendly when serving so a mixed picture.

This is a lovely cafe venue to visit after shopping in Hitchin the food is always good, a nice glass of wine and the service is professional and welcoming, a regular haunt for us. The Chicken Bacon and Avocado salad is a good choice

We were travelling with a baby and were made very welcome with space for a high chair and a pram. We all ordered different dishes and all were excellent. For pudding, I had a selection of three small dessert portions all of which were very tasty. It was very busy but the service was excellent even though the staff were rushed off their feet.
