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.

"Ruby's always has a nice selection of seafood dishes and oysters to choose from. I really love the seared tuna blt sandwich with wasabi mayo and avocado which I order quite a few times. However, this time, the slices of tuna have gotten a lot thinner than in the past. It was so thin you could hardly taste the tuna with all the other condiments on the bread. It seemed there was more bacon that tuna, as that was the predominant flavor. I hope the thin tuna was not due to cutting back expenses. My husband's halibut was prepared nice and moist. The wine selection is nice and wait staff is very attentive."

"Although the food was nicely prepared and tasty, the server was not as attentive and had a bit of an attitude.. He bought over the wrong bottle of wine we ordered and insisted it was correct until we showed him on the menu, he bought over mussels with provencal broth instead of meuniere broth and insisted that their meuniere broth has tomatoes in it, until he was told the menu clearly describes what was in the broth. He did have to return both and bring the corrected items."

"The food was very contemporary with creative food combinations, farm to table with nice presentations. The wait staff was a bit sporadic as they seemed short of staff and only one main server managing the whole dining room as well as a private party in the back."

"A wonderful, cozy ambiance with an interesting variety of foods, prepared by the fireside or kept warm. The cheese racelletewith the different charcuterie, choice of cured meats was a nice start. The leg of lamb was very tasty prepared hanging in front of the fireplace. The salad station with the different types of beets and flavored butters and jam spreads added more variety of tastes. The dessert bar by the fire had the different sauces of chocolate, caramel and grand marnier to go with an assortment of fruit and baked goods. The wait staff was very attentive and cleaned off the plates quickly. The wine list had a nice selection."

"A wonderful selection of different types of seafood for seafood lovers and a variety of meats for non seafood lovers. The 2 kinds of west coast oysters were so sweet and fresh, the assortment of crab legs were a hit with some of our friends. They came chilled but the wait staff steamed them if asked. The sushi was mediocre, nothing distinctive in taste. Some of the prepared fish was a bit overdone. The prime rib was very tasty and we were able to get the doneness we like. The wine selection was moderately priced.
The wait staff was very attentive.

"A wonderful, creative menu for sharing and individual courses. Food was very fresh and excellently prepared and presented well. The wine pairings were very nice as well. It was nice to be able to have either a 3 oz or 5 oz choice."

"Seems like a typical bar restaurant where the main focus is on the beer and drinks. Food was good, mussels in a very tasty broth, entrees were good but not outstanding. A nice selection of beer and flights to taste before deciding which to order a glass of. Wait staff was very attentive."
