Every effort was made by staff to get rid of us and make sure we never return - there's an entire street of amazing places just around the corner i'd rather recommend any of those

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.

Good spot for some drinks with friends. Happy hour is good value but the quality of the drinks isn’t the best. The food was tasty, but quite expensive for what it was. Staff were friendly and attentive most of the time. Overall a nice evening with friends.

If your looking for a tasty bottomless brunch and the excellent service, you must check out Ruby’s Soho. I and my 2 besties had brunch there and we had a brilliant time. We are definitely going to go back.

Took nearly an hour to get our drinks, the waitress had no idea what our drinks were and we had to keep reminding them we ordered in the first place. Menu limited and very expensive for what’s being offered.

Terrible service. Rude waiters. Good bang average. Had to wait 30 mins after ordering to even get our drinks which came after we’d finished the food. Expensive, overpriced snotty place.

The service was excellent. Very welcoming team (hostess, waiter, server)

Food was just average. Ordered the Grilled spatchcock chicken. That’s all you get is the chicken! For £15, even for the area, a side would be included. To throw in some chips would net cost pennies.

Food generally good but was let down by slow service. We waited 45 minutes for drinks to arrive and food even longer. We only had the table for 2 hours (as expected) so felt a bit rushed once we finally received our meals.

We really enjoyed our meal. It was a buzzy, sociable spot without being overbearing or crowded.
The food was really good, especially the prawns and it was very reasonable.
All the staff were friendly and seemed happy to be working there

Menu is concise but this could be due to the pandemic and the main dishes don’t come with sides, they have to be ordered separately. However, we didn’t mind paying slightly more for the amazing quality and happy hour is a brilliant deal to make up for it!

Food was fine. One great waitress but other staff looked like they didn't want to be there at all and didn't make any effort to serve us. Vegan options were awful despite seeing a good vegan menu online. Absolutely no social distancing, sat within half a metre of other diners despite the restaurant being empty on a Sunday morning.

A bit hit and miss. One of our waiters was lovely and went out of his way to help us. Unfortunately the rest of the service was very slow, and we had to ask for menus, cutlery, chase drinks etc. The burgers we ordered where lovely, and truffle chips also great. We were out off ordering dessert by the slow service though as we only had a limited time at the table. If they could work on speeding service up and getting the basics down this would be a great place to meet friends for good food.

They were pretty slow with the service, we sat down, ordered drinks, waited for the waiter to come get our orders, and then tried to get the waiter’s attention to no avail. Finally had our orders in almost an hour after we sat down. The food tasted great though!
