Food was mediocre, the avo toast was completely soggy and we had to keep pestering staff for top-ups of mimosas which became frustrating.
I can’t understand how avo toast is being charged out at 11.50 when it’s so basic.

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience, we have now changed the bread on the avocado toast which could be more to your liking, please do come back again and we will make sure your glass is never empty. Love Ruby's X

The drinks weren't the nicest but then what do you expect for £5 in happy hour. I certainly wouldn't have paid the full price though! Staff were lovely and accomodating. Thank you

We sat and waited for 15 minutes without having any service so decided to leave. There were people at only two other tables so it wasn't even busy. The waiter just ignored us and didn't even try to explain when we told him that we decided to leave.

To be fair to the restaurant it was a DJ night apparently. Why a restaurant where everyone is seated needs dance music played at increasing volume during dinner I don’t know.
It was to loud to talk.
The food was fine. Not great.
It took 30 minutes before anyone came to offer us a drink or take an order.

I'm very sorry you had a bad experience, however when you book it does say on your booking you are allocated a maximum of a 2 hour slot, that would be the same with the places round the corner. Love Rubys x

WHAT a place!! I had never heard of Ruby’s and went on a whim when booking it, and oh my goodness I think I’ve just found my new favourite place?! Staff were SO lovely and accommodating, cocktails and food were so tasty and nice generous sizes, the ambience of the restaurant was great, DJ bringing some sweet tunes all night! Will be recommending to all my friends and can’t wait to come back :) thanks everyone at Ruby’s for a great night! You’re awesome

I booked a table to have dinner a catch up with two friends I hadn't see for months due to covid - Ruby's had a DJ pumping out music nightclub level. It was so hard to hold a conversation - it ruined the evening. I love nightclubs - but wouldn't book to have dinner in one. Should have been pre warned. Starters lovely - main course bland. Service lackadaisical. Will not be going back.

They have massively up’t their game at Ruby’s! We went around 2 years ago and it wasn’t good .. but it’s almost like a new restaurant! Cocktails & wine were great, the food is much much better although quite pricey for what it is, but it’s soho and we expect to pay that. Lastly to mention we had great service! All round we will be going back. The music is turned up & vibey with some old school tunes! Loved it.

Food was lovely, came quite quick and nicely presented.
Service was slow, it was a bottomless brunch and our glasses were empty for a long time and we had to keep asking for them to be filled rather than being looked after.
Also the tables were a bit tightly crammed together so it was hard to have a conversation with other people so close as there voices were very loud.

From the moment a waiter spilled a drink down my back things went downhill fast. This place could be great but is clearly terribly managed. Food and drink orders delayed and then wrong. And no apology at all. I'd avoid if I were you.
