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.

Great Service !!
Great Food !!
The service was great! I enjoy high energy places, but our table was awkwardly placed between the bar and entrance to kitchen. Other than that, delicious!
Parking not that great. Food exceptional
Great food, service and ambience! Crab tower was amazing!!
Never Disappointing! Love the food, love the service! In addition to being creative and flavorful, the Keto and Paleo menus are unique offerings, even in a city the size of H-town!
Great food and wine as always! Service mildly slow tonight, but no complaints.
Great selection of healthy options. Chad took really good care of us and made some great suggestions as well.
Absolutely AMAZING!!! First time there. Everyone from the hostess to the bartender to our waitress (Amethyst) were all very welcoming and the food was hands down some of the best I’ve ever had!! Highly recommend! Portion sizes are very good...I was able to bring home half my dinner and half of my dessert! I had the Keto Lemon Garlic Mediterranean Chicken and my parents shared a pizza! Don’t forget to make a reservation! It’s a VERY popular place, but totally worth the wait!
Paleo food was amazing! The ramen wasn’t so good and was not cooked with a hard boiled egg as stated.
Delicious food exceeding expectations. Many options for keto and Paleo lifestyles. They make you feel like you're not in a diet!
Really enjoyed the food. Burger toppings were different and the taste was excellent. $71 lunch for two with no beer or wine. I would recommend to try during lunchtime as it wasn't very busy.
My boyfriend and I are on a ketogenic diet and have been looking for nice dinner places with keto menus ... everything on this keto menu was phenomenal!!! We were stuffed when we left - and still in ketosis. We both had several keto cocktails and tried the keto bread, tacos, pepperoni pizza, and Nutella pie. Yum!
Only complaint is that I wish I knew the macro breakdown of each dish so that I could have tracked ... many ketogenic people rely on that.
Ruggles Black became our most favorite restaurant in town. Although very busy the staff is very welcoming and attentive. Living a paleo life the options in Houston are not great. Houston’s wonder-Chef Bruce Molzan is crowned the King of Paleo for so many reasons. The creations of unbelievable flavors and choice of guilt free treats are wonderful. I never could really enjoy desserts. But the paleo cheesecakes make me look forward to the dessert.
Small and somewhat crowded but good vibe and lots of diverse food options
Great service and food, but pretty pricy!
We absolutely love Ruggles Black and it’s become our favorite spot for a nice delicious fun dinner in Houston. If the weather is nice the patio is wonderful and at night the lights add to the patio or inside dining experience as well as it’s all glass. The food is so special as it’s a fusion of flavors from different cuisines. Really can’t say enough about the Paleo and non paleo options for all courses. There’s nothing like it really in all of HOUSTON. It’s world class is the best way to put it in our opinion.
Food is outstanding and lots of choice for Keto diet
The food was excellent! I love how they cater to all needs. They understand food & how to make it taste unique.
Wonderful evening. Amazing food. Amazing service. Highly recommend the butternut squash soup the short rib tacos. One of my favorite places. Save room for dessert!!
This is a fun, unique restaurant with a wide-ranging menu and a cheerful ambiance. The humus tray was excellent. We split a salad and an entree and that was more than enough to eat. The prices were quite reasonable.
Food incredible !!!
Service outstanding !!
The food was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be back to try something else.
A couple of times, reservations have not been honored. Last time I fussed at my husband to hurry up because I did not want to be late for our reservation but when we got there they didn’t even have a table ready for us. Great food and drinks. Their KETO menu is delicious. We have tried it all.
From the service to the cocktails to the amazing food, it is all an amazing dining experience! I had a Ketotini, their healthier spin on a lemon drop martini. Oh so good! Then there is the crab tower! Unbelievably delicious and fresh! Jose, our server, was wonderful and attentive. My second time here, and I look forward to many more visits!
It’s always a thrill to eat at Ruggles Black! All of the staff is incredible, and it’s obvious everyone loves their job!
Great flavorful food! I was a little worried that Paleo and Keto would lack flavor and I was wrong. I will definitely go back
We loved our experience here!!! My husband had the Lamb and I had the jumbo lump crab green curry with spaghetti squash.. both dishes were soooo amazing.
I have been coming here for about a year and tonight I just realized that you can request items be prepared as whole 30 options. This is fantastic news and makes me love this restaurant even more.
Menu is too large to pay attention to detail. Creative and healthy menu options but quality has gone down(pink tuna and shrimp didn’t seem fresh)The food tastes good but the prices are too high for the casual atmosphere and quality
Everything was delicious and awesome. How the pizza is gluten free is beyond me. Thanks!
Excellent food, almost too many options to choose from - and so many paleo/Whole30 type options. Only complaint is ridiculous parking situation - nearby restaurants have commandeered nearly the entire parking lot (Taco Cabana, really??) to detriment of Ruffles Black patrons.
Best seafood ramen I’ve ever had.
Too much hot seasonings in each dish, without informing patrons. Advised server that did not want so much hot seasoning....brought soup out with chili oil poured on top.
Always pleasantly surprised by the menu at Ruggles. Some of the Keto & Paleo offerings are a little weird for me, if welcomed by those who subscribe to that....but their menu offers something for everyone...pastas, meats, fish, veggies. The flavors and textures of their food is simply outstanding. The portions are generous, and there is always something new. Staff are knowledgeable and attentive. The bar is fun, indoor seating very comfortable, and when the weather is nice the outdoor seating is better than many in Houston. I would suggest some sort of wall on the backside patio which is in eyesight and earshot of the highway....it would really improve the ambiance of the tree-covered booths and tables there. I will sit there, it's fine....but would be much nicer for a little effort and expense. Always recommend!
An absolutely wonderful evening! We will definitely be back!!!
Everyhing was great except the noise level. Had to shout in order to have a conversation. Awful!
Nice place for outdoor dining but the chairs need to be a little taller (felt like a little kid). I had the spinach stuffed chicken. Delicious dinner!
I love this restaurant!!
The food is delicious. We ate outside on the patio and it was super nice. the Waitstaff is fun an friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
We will keep coming!!!!
