Excellent service and a yummy eggplant rollatini made for an outstanding backdrop for lunch with a friend

They have a really good $12 lunch special and the place was packed. The mushroom soup and arugula salad were delicious. The short rib flatbread was good, but had a little too much bbq sauce, and the pappardelle bolognese was amazing. My short rib wrap was mostly mushrooms, and not that much short ribs. The Ruvo burger was ok, but didn’t live up to expectations. For $12, everything on the menu is pretty good. This is only the second time we’ve been here for lunch and although it was good, it doesn’t live up to the amazing and delicious food they serve at dinner.

We are usually satisfied but this visit was terrible. Chicken dish had a strange texture. Lobster three ways was awful. Tempura style was spongy, risotto was like spackle and the tail tasted fishy. We saw our waiter once and had a hard time getting drinks and service. Best part about the experience was the hardworking bus girl who seemingly did everything. In addition the live music was enjoyable. Probably won’t be back.

Ruvo East was a delightful belated Valentine Day date for my husband and I. I love seafood and the selection was ample. My husband enjoyed the skirt steak. The server was friendly and patient. We were not rushed. We had a private and quiet evening where we were well taken cared of. We noticed a busy bar area and that looked fun too. We had a lovely time! Thanks, Ruvo East!

Always top shelf in every way...Ruvo is our choice for anything special, in fact, I asked my wife to marry me right in front of Ruvo's on Valentine's Day 2013....She accepted my proposal...

My boyfriend and I were very excited to return here as it was the place where we had our first date. The food was delicious but the small size of the dining area increased the loudness of the room to the point that we could barely hear each other. The service was terrible. The waitress had to be tracked down to get refills of our drinks and she forgot to return to our table to get our dessert order despite having asked us if we wanted dessert. The service would have been better if the wait staff weren’t all standing around the hostess while gossiping about their customers.

Just love Ruvo. I have been here about ten or more times. The food is great and the overal fell of the restaurant is special. Very cozy, sometimes load but just a great feeling everytime I walk in and then walk out.

The Jewel of Port Jeff...enduring many changing restaurants around it.
