Ruggles Black Restaurant
The concept and food at Ruggles Black is modern and fun: a fusion pushing Indian, Asian, and American flavors to whole new boundaries in terms of taste, but keeping it accessible in terms of price.
Ruggles Black is THE place to be for conscious eating foodies, as Bruce “The King of Paleo” cooks his amazingly delicious treats with local ingredients from farmers, while embracing the Paleo principles.
***PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FROM 3PM - 5PM DAILY MENU OPTIONS WILL ONLY INCLUDE PIZZA AND SALADS.***
Seating for reservation was very poor.
Was sitting by a refrigerator that people kept going in and out of shouldn't be a table there.
Everything was impeccable!
Great food (and large portions). The beet and pork belly salad was outstanding.
Lots of keto and paleo options. Server was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Absolutely incredible food. We will absolutely come back. A healthy twist, and so so tasty!
Best food in town! Seriously!
I’ve visited this restaurant a few times in the past, have also bought gift cards as Christmas gifts in the past. It’s always been a nice experience including tonight. The only downside that happened was I ordered ceviche as an appetizer and the waiter brought it with my meal, even though I stated we’d like to “start off” with the Ceviche as our appetizer. Obviously something didn’t register or he forgot, I don’t know.. He didn’t really come by to check on our table very often at all. The gentleman that filled our water glasses came by more often.. maybe he should train to be part of the waitstaff. This wouldn’t stop me from visiting again though. I just would make sure this particular person not be the one to serve our table.
This restaurant is amazing if you’re dealing with food allergies or restrictions. They take it very seriously (as they should!) but make everything delicious.
It was our anniversary
Loud but good atmosphere, service good and food was good, dessert was awesome, a fun place.
Tables a little to close together for my liking but still had a good evening
Love This Restaurant
The experience was excellent! Service and food exceptional! The atmosphere is nice and cozy .
Great place to eat for individuals who follow the paleo diet! Lots of great dish and dessert options! The paleo cheesecake and coconut ice cream are amazing!!! Great little date night place too as the restaurant offers a very romantic cozy vide! We got the Ruben pasta and it was fantastic!! (“The pasta” was actually zucchini squash not pasta!!! I loved it)
Delicious food and very generous portions. Busy place so reservations are much needed!
Come to Katy please!!! We drive 30-45 min just to eat here. Please bring this restaurant to Katy!!
Food is consistent and I think unique. The grilled? Vegetables are to die for. They seasoning is Spicy, but not too, especially for me and my wife who do not routinely seek out spicy(hot) food. Everyone we have introduced to it has loved it. I always make reservations and prefer the booths in front for noise level. It is our favorite restaurant in all of Htown.
They kill it with menu and service
Never got seated. Overbooked and so poorly managed the manger did not know people were not being seated. Reservations were not acknowledged and tables not set aside. Took walk-ins at the same time. Coolers right at the door which are accessed by staff around people waiting for tables. Tables that were sat waiting 15 min for a server. Waited over an hour for a 8:15 reservation finally had to leave. Very uncomfortable experience no place to wait.
Server was overworked, covering too many tables inside and outside and as a result the service suffered greatly.
We are big fans of this restaurant, so we will come again. Hopefully this is just a fluke.
We reserved a different table which was not available when we arrived so we had to take another type table. We ordered an appetizer and right after came the food so we had to eat both simultaneously. After that food was great
The food at Ruggles Black is amazing. Anyone who thinks keto / paleo meals taste bland definitely needs to try this place. A wonderful meal followed by super tasty desserts...this has become our favorite restaurant.
Wow. Everything was perfect! We shared the goat cheese salad and it was divine. Our server was knowledgable, helpful, and intuitive to every detail. It is a beautiful, fun, clean place. The food was fresh, well presented and we could tell attention was paid to every single dish we ordered.
Love this place!!!!
Our first visit to Ruggles Black and we will definitely be back. The food was very good - including the pistachio crusted redfish, crab tower & chicken stuffed spinach. The kitchen turned around our orders extremely fast - which our waitress said was normal for them.
Always YUM! Service was great and there's a lot on the menu to pick from, especially DESSERT! Small place, so always recommend making a reservation.
Our waiter Paul was amazing! He knew the wine menu very well.
I was thrilled to see an entire menu with a bountiful variety of creative, farm-to table selections in several categories, dedicated to the high fat, low carb requirements of keto. I'm equally thrilled to be able to report that Ruggles Black killed it. KILLED IT.
We started with the crispy Brussels sprouts, which burst with caramelized, punchy zest and a hint of sweetness. Other starters were deliciously saucy, garlicky butter Parmesan wings, dripping with beautifully complex flavors. And another bright star? The most amazing keto cheese bread... soft, moist, rustic in presentation, delightfully "carby" mouthfeel. Yes, hot keto bread in a restaurant. Believe it!
The keto pizza was truly artisan, topped with savory meats, fresh herbs and spices, resting on melty cheese and zippy sauce. The thin, crisp crust (coconut and almond flours) was surprisingly sturdy, allowing us to actually pickup the slices... like real pizza. WIN.
Of course, we had to try a keto dessert, right? But we couldn't go with just one, so we tackled the two that beckoned loudest from the menu: a light and fluffy cheesecake that tasted exactly like cheesecake, and the chocolate hazelnut pie, which was rich, creamy, dense, and decadent. We were sufficiently stuffed prior to these treats arriving, so most of it came home in a to-go bag. No complaints there!
Needless to say, I was extremely impressed (and quite giddy) with how well Ruggles Black executed on this keto menu, and I cannot wait to return to try more of it.
Loved the wide menu choices!
Trying to stay on Keto, and this restaurant makes it easy.
Loved the Keto Options. Dessert was wonderful! The food was fresh and came out quickly. Will definitely return.
I met a friend for lunch and the service was great and the food was fantastic. It's not a cheap lunch but the food is really delicious and well thought out. I had the beef short rib tacos and we split the Brussels sprouts appetizer. Everything was great.
We should have stopped after the scrumptious crab tower but no, we asked to see the desert tray. There were so many choices and we zeroed in on the chocolate coconut cake with ice cream. Excellent food , service and value.
Fun and interesting menu with so much choice! Paleo, vegetarian and more. It was pretty noisy when we were there and I thought the ramen ordered was a bit sweet.
All in all a great place. If you like fried oysters, they are great!
Loved the food! Such a huge selections. I have never been anywhere in Houston that had such a huge paleo and keto selection. Wish there was one in Katy by our home. It was a bit small and when it started to fill the people waiting on a table kept bumping into us. A reservation is a must. We will be back.
Food and service were excellent, however seating was very cramped and because of that it was very noisy from neighboring guests
Wonderful Keto diet menu choices
Tons of mistakes in a plastic filled environment
Our wait staff helped select food and drinks. Fun and fab!
We never got to dinner. Had a reservation time of 8:15pm for 4 people and a toddler, arrived at least 5 min before our reservation time. Our table was not ready. They don't have much space to wait inside, so waited outside in the heat until 8:45. At that point, table was still not ready, so we called Coppa Osteria, they had no wait time so we canceled with Ruggles and went there. Ended up having a fantastic experience at Coppa as usual. Ruggles needs to do better with reservations if they dont have an area for guests to wait comfortably.
