    3 stars due to 30+ min wait for reserved table, drinks not comped during wait, screaming child necessitating re-seating. Food was good though and our server was accommodating.

    customer service above & beyond!! food was good but not great for the $$$$ i started with prawns app-it was good but sauce too salty!!! i had the sea bass for entree- it was delicious BUT the balsamic sauce poured over it was terrible and didn’t ruin it… but wish it was on side. Mushrooms as a side were tasty but again too salty. butter cake for dessert was delicious!!! excellent-no fault found!! Atmosphere was a little too over the top-i really didn’t like the decor at all! my 2 cents

    Saw a Reel on IG and I decided to try something new for my sister's birthday. When I tell you everything was on point, from the service, the ambiance and the FOOD!! The Food was the star of the show. Everyone ordered something different (6ppl) and every last one of our meals was top tier. Everything our waitress suggested was absolutely delicious. I can not wait to come back. The rib cap steak and the chicken fried lobster was so flavorful and to end the meal with that butter cake... you will not regret it.

    Wasn’t impressed my the bison ribeye or hasselback potato. Wife’s filet with king crab accoutrements was good. Dessert was good. Restaurant was very nice. I’d still go back but would try something different.

    My wife and I, along with friends, dined at The Ruxton last night. We've enjoyed Atlas's quality and service for years, and The Ruxton's design and service continued this tradition. However, the dining experience had its downsides. The main disappointment was the dry-aged Cowboy Steak. While well-prepared, it lacked the flavorful punch we expected from a steakhouse. This was surprising, given our past experiences with steaks at other Atlas restaurants. Additionally, the noise level was a significant issue. It was so loud that we struggled to hear our server and had to raise our voices to communicate. This detracted from the otherwise pleasant atmosphere. The menu closely resembled those of other Atlas restaurants, like The Oregon Grill, lacking distinctiveness. However, the appetizers, especially the caviar tater tots, and the seafood tower were highlights of our meal, showcasing the culinary excellence we associate with Atlas. Despite these strengths, the underwhelming main course and excessive noise marred our experience. As fans of Atlas restaurants, we hope The Ruxton can address these issues to match the high standards of its sister venues.

    I would have given them 4 stars but we had a terrible experience with the valet. Valet cost $15 we gave the valet $20 when we parked we asked if it was OK to pay ahead of time and we were told yes. we specifically asked if they would have some system of knowing whether or not we paid ahead of time. They said you're fine when we left, they kept harassing us to pay for parking. it was only because I refuse that we were able to leave. I called the restaurant and they told me that they were an outside company. The fact that they're an outside company is not a reason why I should be more satisfied. Regardless of whether they're in-house valet or third-party they were acting as agents of your restaurant and they were highly unprofessional. You don't go out for an expensive meal to be nickeled and di by the valet. It's a bad look for the atlas group. This experience has tainted my view of this restaurant and it said because it's an excellent restaurant.

    Beautiful space. Friendly service but not yet trained to the price point. A 4 figure meal for 4 should come with wine being poured, women’s orders be taken first, and some attempt to deliver the correct plates to the correct people. Food was tasty and cooked as ordered. Final complaint might not resonate with everyone but a place this expensive and fancy really should have a dress code. I know this is a sensitive topic, particularly for Atlas, but when you get dressed up for fine dining it does impact your experience to be surrounded by more baseball caps than sport coats.

    At The Ruxton, an Atlas Restaurant Group gem, old-world charm meets modern elegance in an inviting atmosphere. Our experience was elevated by our server Nicole Wilhelm and sommelier Patrick, whose expertise and warmth turned our meal into an unforgettable event. Nicole’s impeccable service was a highlight, from her perfectly timed check-ins to her adept handling of our teenage boys, ensuring they felt included and entertained. Her recommendations on cuts of meat, side dishes, and cocktails were spot-on, demonstrating a deep understanding of the menu and our preferences. Patrick, our enthusiastic sommelier, introduced us to the Serpico Feudi Di San Gregorio, a wine that complemented our meal beautifully and showcased his passion for his curated wine menu. The culinary journey featured perfectly cooked steaks, innovative sauces, and classic cocktails with a twist. Despite being too full for dessert, Nicole surprised us with the house's Ruxton warm butter cake, far surpassing any typical butter cake, especially when paired with the complimentary César Florido Moscatel Dorado N.V. suggested by Patrick. While the freshness of the hamachi and the choice of background music could be improved, these minor details didn't detract from the stellar service and culinary excellence. Nicole and Patrick exemplified hospitality at its best, making The Ruxton a must-visit for those seeking a blend of sophistication, warmth, and culinary adventure.

    If you want first class dining, then I strongly recommend The Ruxton. From the time you enter until the time you leave; the staff will make you feel like you are very important and special. The food was cooked to perfection and our waitress was the best!!! It has been a while since I could truly write something so great about a restaurant. Then to top it off the atmosphere is second to none!

    This was our first time in this new restaurant. They did a great job redesigning the old Fleming’s space. The bar is very cool. Sophisticated but warm and welcoming at the same time. I can see coming back and grabbing some appetizers before a movie. Everything about the evening was above and beyond. The service was super attentive in a good way. Must try the lobster bisque. It was laced with different layers of flavor. Sublime. Steaks were very good and perfectly prepared. Took half of it home. They brought us their butter cake with two glasses of bubbles for my husband’s birthday! You normally don’t get both. Nice touch. The butter cake is a must try. Leave room for it. My one complaint were the acoustics. The space is super loud. If you can get a table against the wall I think it might be better. We were in the middle of the room. The value was fair because they’re big big servings of high quality meat. The cost is what it is. I wouldn’t say bad or great. Do try this lovely restaurant. We will definitely return.

    The food was excellent, and the wine list was both very good and quite interesting. Be prepared, though, because it is very loud. We struggled to hear our server, and it was difficult to hold a conversation across the table.

    Our waiter Shane did a great job. My steak was excellent. I wish we could have been seated in the main dining area. We were in the back which was to quiet. Also my wife’s martini was way to small compared to other high end restaurants we go to. Overall had a great experience.
