Staff were super friendly and accommodating.
Food was AMAZING
Music I think was my favourite part, they had a dj in, najsmusic_ who played disco/funk vibes, honestly made the ambience of the restaurant that much more tantalising

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!

It was ok, only worth it with the taste card discount. Terrible when it comes to answering the phone or queries via Instagram but given the half price it'll do

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!

I booked a set menu and when I arrived they took my order, then came back 10 minutes later and told me the kitchen was closed. I went there to celebrate my 21st birthday. I wasn’t impressed and left the restaurant hungry.

Unfortunately we did not have the best experience. The waiting time for food was long and the waiter had not written down one of our orders. Additionally the portions were tiny and we were not informed that we need to order sides with the food. Considering it was £15 for a burger by itself, it was quite overpriced. Despite messing up our order the service charge was left on our bill

Good vibes, very pretty ambience. Food is average, I would definitely go back for cocktails only. Music is way too loud, which makes it impossible even to have a conversation at your own table

We had a nice experience at Ruby’s. Few things to think about. Music was insanely loud, waiters were a bit over active, the next table from us was extremely annoying and harrassing our waiter sexually and touched members of our table as well. Very uncomfortable and I wish someone from the staff could have done something. I hope the waiter is alright..

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

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.
