Amazing food and portions for the set menu. Did have to ask several times for the Prosecco and fries we ordered but the staff were good. The only thing was at the end a member of staff asked if we were leaving a tip for them so we didn’t as we had various staff serving us throughout the night. If it had been one person then maybe so

They were definitely short staffed but to be honest it was so bad they shouldn’t really have opened. Waited more than 45 minutes for even a coffee, then they were all wrong. Half the food came, half didn’t. We had to chase several times and the staff weren’t even apologetic. Food was ok when it did arrive but the service was just awful. No one even came to our table to give us menus for half an hour. And it really was not busy in there.

We had a long-standing booking for four for 7:15pm but got there to be told it was 5:30pm. Showed them our OpenTable e-mail confirming it was indeed 7:15pm and they tried to find us somewhere to sit. We were eventually squeezed into a corner, only to be told 30 minutes later (before our main courses had even arrived) that they would need the table back in 15 minutes!
The bill arrived before we'd finished our drinks and without being offered the option to order dessert. We were moved to another table and had a rushed pudding before being given the wrong bill, having to pay a second time to settle the correct amount and finally left very disappointed. If it hadn't been for the apologetic Kirsty we'd have left much earlier.

Great food and the restaurant was very busy. The space between tables was minimal and it’s very hard to exit without disturbing the next table. I had notified the staff that it was my friends birthday but they failed to acknowledge it.

Been a few times good place last night started on a but of a downer with one of the managers/owners a being rude, also noticed him talking to staff not very nicely.

Food is great good music overall I like it just no need for the attitude as he has some great attentive staff and in the current climate they'll leave.

Unfortunately, sour coffee, overcooked lobster and eggs (in the eggs benedict), and pretty bad service. Sadly, since we had seen the place on TikTok and we’re looking forward to a good visit. Oh well…

The music was very loud and the rooms very dark. It was really hard to read the menu or see what you're eating. The food quality varies by the dish, but was not excellent for any of the ones we ordered

We went for a 6:30pm evening meal on a Friday night.
On the good side: The only saving grace is the food was outstanding! I had the wagyu burger with truffle Mayo and garlic broccoli on the side, hubby had the half grilled chicken with seasoned fries….flavour, texture, temperature all perfect and fresh!
The set up for dining was ‘intimate’ with low lighting and candles on tables.
Only let down was seating was very cramped, we got the impression that the more bums in seats the more profit they could make (which is somewhat understandable), however this detracted from the initial offering of an intimate dining space. Once the restaurant became busy it was difficult to hold a conversation over the noise of others.
In addition to this we found the service a little slow; waiting around 15 minutes for our waitress to take our drinks order, then another 15 minutes for our drinks.
We were then asked to move tables 3 times due to them receiving late bookings for larger parties! On the third time we declined as we were being served our food. But As I said the food was outstanding and that really is the only reason why I didn’t give a poorer review, and after all that, I would probably go back, just for the food though!

We were originally turned away by the restaurant as they don't allow walk-ins, however after looking online for somewhere else nearby, we noticed that Rubys actually had tables available to book online. When we returned 10 minutes later with an online booking, we weren't greeted very friendly. I presume they weren't impressed we booked online and didn't really want us there! Food was tasty but very overpriced for what it was. £5 for a small glass of orange juice!

Great atmosphere and location. Food was nice but expensive for what it was. Too many waiters so they were constantly buzzing round clearing your table before others had finished. Better that than poor service but they could have chilled a bit.

Very busy and buzzy restaurant right in middle of Soho. Food was good and ambience made fir a very loud friday night which we enjoyed immensely. Staff were all lovely given the noise levels making it difficult for them to hesr when ordering etc. Not for someone wantibg a romantic meal for two but highly recommended for a buzzy friday night inLondon - thank you,

Security at the front very rude. we booked a table online for outdoor and they put us at the back of the restaurant indoors. To get the table we waited 15 minutes. The waiters and managers took 10 minutes before asking us if we were ready to order and the place wasn’t even that busy.
One of my friend ordered a mojito and she wasn’t even asked whether she wanted it small or large so they just did it small.

Not recommended at all!
