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.

I have been coming to Rubys for years as a Ryebrook resident and have fond the restaurant to be consistently good over the years, but I found it to start to get a little stale, still good, but losing its sizzle and then they brought in a new chef who is excellent and brought a new exciting flair to the menu! Congrats! Great move to bring Billy in to join the team!

I was expecting mash potatoes cauliflower and was disappointed to find out it was a seasonal thing.

Love the weekend brunch, as it also offers 1/2 price on bottles:) Unfortunately they no longer have the Tuna Tartar Pizza which was my absolute favorite :\ Have not found a comparable replacement on the appetizer menu so far...

Went to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. Mentioned that in my reservation. No recognition of it by restaurant. Just a little thing- but little things go a long way. There were eight of us at a fairly small table. Food was fine. Oysters very good. Pleasant experience.

Disappointing food - steak undercooked and then tough, had to return. Ended having no dinner. Service like a fast food restaurant, some servers good, not so others. When booking I indicated special occasion (birthday) but there was no recognition of this so what's the point? Overall disappointing experience.

We had a nice late New Year's Dinner at Ruby's. I had the best Seafood Bouillabaisse EVER, still thinking about the delicious flavorful broth... The service was great too! Our waiter never tried to rush us out when it was past midnight.

We were not able to eat at Ruby's. We showed up 10 minutes early for our reservation, checked in and were sent to the bar. 45 minutes later we watched several other diners come in and get immediately seated. The hostess was at the bar chatting the entire time. We ended up leaving and going to another restaurant. We will never go back there.

We have been to Rubys on many occasions, and I can honestly say that this was the best meal I have ever had there. We had a 2 tiered Seafood platter. Amazing oysters. The shrimp were ENORMOUS! For entrees. we ordered the hanger steak & the Icelandic trout (I think? It was similar to Arctic Char). Both couples ordered one of each and we had our own surf and turf. Both entrees were coked to perfection.

Been going regularly for 2 years. New chef reduced portion sizes. Changed a particular item we loved to something very different in style, quantity and flavor. Not good.
Prices are borderline NYC prices. E.g. $15 for a cocktail.
$30++ for an entree.

The new chef Billy Rosenberg is extraordinary. The Rosenburger is delicious. So is the salmon tartar, and asparagus with pesto and parmigiana with a fried egg on top. Everything we had was very good.
