Ruby's is a brilliant gem in downtown Rye. It is chic, casual and comfortable. It charms guests with its varied menu, friendly and professional service, and its lively ambience. Ruby's stylish décor showcases an authentic zinc bar from Paris, beaded chandeliers and ruby red drapes. From its coffered ceiling and tasseled sconces down to its marble mosaic floor, no precious stone has been left unturned.

Everything was perfect. Only reason ambiance not higher is lights weren’t dimmed as much as usual. I love Ruby’s because of its low lighting, cozy bistro feel. That night not a lot of diners in restaurant and staff had lights on higher than usual. Changed the vibe ( not for the better).

Ruby's is a great neighborhood restaurant and it didn't' disappoint. I loved the crispy Brussel sprouts and blackened shrimp appetizer. My husband had the chicken and loved every bite, we will return again and again.

We had a consummately lovely Easter brunch at Ruby's, and were very impressed by the attention to detail in each of our dishes, all of which were seasoned beautifully. Our server, Eileen, was very gracious in accommodating our 20-month-old and providing him with chocolate milk and crayons while we scarfed on the "Fire & Ice" spicy tuna tempura roll, brussels sprouts chips, asparagus appetizer and crab cake eggs benedict.

So, how disappointed am I? Ruby's has been one of my default restaurants for years. Granted, with the virus, I have not been here is a while. Nothing to do on a Sunday night, I thought I'd have a nice meal here. With the exception of two people at the bar, I was the only one in the restaurant at 7:15pm. I ordered oysters, a salad, a burger, and a beer. The first oysters they brought me looked like they'd been shucked a couple days ago. They were dry with absolutely no liquor. I sent them back. They brought me another order and they were definitely better. Waited a while, finally got my salad. It was was ok. I'm the only one in the place... Waited a while again, they took my salad bowl and waited again for my burger. It was a mountain of fries and a large bun and a small burger. It was cooked medium rare so no complaint. 6 oysters, 1 salad, 1 porter, 1 burger, $69.00.
Everyone working there was moving in slow motion. This is a restaurant that used to be so bustling and lively and fun to go to that the stark change was not only upsetting, but supremely disappointing. The floor looked like it hadn't been washed in weeks. The manager (I assume the manager) was chatting it at the bar with a couple only to take his dinner from a counter and disappear. Waitress moved around with not a care in the world and no sense of involvement.
I asked if the restaurant had changed hands, that's how different it was from my last times here.
I'm writing this with the hope the owner might take notice, get involved, and stir things up at what has been a great place to go. Will give it another chance in a while but if its same as tonite, will be my last.
So sad!!

This place looked beautiful. We had high hopes. Blackened Shrimp was good but the steak frites was atrocious. I didn't think it was still possible to mess up steak in this day and age. It looked like a really nice bar so I ordered an Old Fashioned. I would have preferred water.

I am such a fan of Ruby's - we come here often. Last Saturday night, we had a 7:15 reservation for four and we had to wait over twenty minutes for our table. There was no place to stand even as we waited.

Once we got our table, it was along a narrow walkway along the bar, so servers and patrons kept bumping up against us.

The service was rather slow. We received our dessert before our coffee. It was almost too loud to have a conversation.

We have always loved Ruby's for its' consistency in food, service and ambiance. I can only hope that our lackluster experience is an exception to what normally is a superior experience.
