Diner Reviews
  • "Although we had reservations, we had to wait for a good hour. The restaurant was very noisy, you had to shout to one another to be heard. I totally enjoyed the food, it was delicious. We had no idea that on Thursday evenings there was music and an extended Happy Hour, never would had made reservations had we known."

  • "Service was poor, waitress was not pleasant, had to search for someone to request anything (like clearing away appetizer plates before dinner arrived) Have been here before and service was good, unfortunately this time it was bad"

  • "Our party of 6 went to celebrate a family event. Priced fixed dinner menu was very reasonable. Appetizers, especially the short ribs risotto were great. My steak was as good as any of famous steakhouses. Then desserts came which topped off a great meal. "

  • "Good food, very good service. We'll be back. Simple as that. Aside: two women at the next table felt servers passed them by before they could order drinks: the first round was served them gratis."

  • "Once again, enjoyed every minute of our meal here! We were seated immediately. Our waiter was cheerful, and attentive. We shared the calamari app. (though the horseradish remoulade did not appear to have any horseradish in it at all, but the marinara was good) and a beet salad. Both of which were tasty and done well. We also both opted to have the same entree of the cavatelli with lobster, white beans and spinach. The tomato-basil sauce was slightly sweet and delicious! I just wish there had been a little more lobster....but you can never have enough lobster, ever! All in all, it was a very good dinner and we will continue to dine here. It's a guaranteed win!"

  • "Ruvo West has never failed to disappoint. Both of us agreed that the mussels appetizer was the best we have ever had--anywhere, including Brussels. Absolute perfection with a bit of kick! "

  • "We live in the neighborhood which means I can walk to this restaurant. We've been here quite a few times and have always had a great dinner. Not sure what has happened but we were disappointed in our meal. It's been about a year since we've been there and the food just wasn't up to standards. Every dish seemed heavy handed in taste. We had the price fixe meal and we both started with the short rib topped over risotto and a balsamic reduction. The balsamic reduction over powered the dish and was very strong along with the short ribs. My wife had the rollatini with spaghetti which was heavy handed on basil and nothing to write home to nona about. I had the pork chops with a sweet apple sauce and escarole and beans. Disappointing!"

  • "A run of the mill restaurant with acceptable food. Chicken parm was tasty but chicken was dry. Ordered ice cream for desert. Got two little scoops in a soup bowel, no whipped cream or garnish. For $7.00 it should have had a better presentation."

  • "3 Overcooked Meals - Poor Service. Do I need to say more. The waitress never came back to the table to see how our meals were. My husband had to flag her down, after 10 minutes, to ask for a small serving of Parmigian Cheese. The busboys were real efficient at trying to clear the table - we guess they needed to turn over the table. Desert was excellent but it did not make up for the main courses. Sorry, we won't be going back."

  • "Overall prices were expensive for decent food. Ambiance and look of the place makes it nice for a date or a relaxing dinner with family and friends. From the wine list to the entrees everything could be found better for less.. But it's all a matter of your willingness to travel. Ruvo's keeps a nice local restaurant and the food was (good) but not impressive for the price you pay."

  • "I love this restaurant. I have been coming here for years. The food is always fresh. The wait staff is always friendly. I have never Gone out for Christmas eve dinner before. But I will say that the dinner my husband and I had here was fabulous. I think this will be my Christmas eve go to from now on. This is a never be disappointed restaurant in a lovely and quaint Village. Love it"

  • "This was my 3rd trip to Ruvo, and each time has been a great experience. We shared an appetizer of scallops over a bed of risotto, which was creamy and flavorful! The scallops were seared perfectly and were delicious. We also shared an appetizer from the 'specials' menu of shrimp and brussel sprouts. The shrimp were huge (again, cooked perfectly) and the brussel sprouts were sliced thinly, mixed with onion and packed with lots of flavor. I had the salmon, which I'd had before. It was just as delicious as I'd remembered, and my friend had pumpkin ravioli from the 'specials'. We both enjoyed every bite of our meals and finished it off with bread pudding ala mode. Fantastic!! The waitress was attentive and courteous. I will be back for sure!!"

  • "Went to Ruvo with some new friends and as always came away with a wonderful dining experience. The food is always so tasty, well served and presented and although the restaurent is always full, the tables are placed so you don't feel you are dining with your neighbors. Let's not forget about the Gorgeous, wood floors, wide panel, reclaimed, full of character. Ambience, menu and good friends. How can you miss!?"
