Mixing all these ingredients is so exciting for Houston’s wonder-Chef Bruce Molzan and his partner Neera Patidar! The concept and food at Ruggles Black is modern and fun: a fusion pushing Indian, Asian, and American flavors to whole new boundaries in terms of taste, but keeping it accessible in terms of price. Ruggles Black is THE place to be for conscious eating foodies, as Bruce “The King of Paleo” cooks his amazingly delicious treats with local ingredients from farmers, while embracing the Paleo principles.

    excellent service, and good food. The should provide a serving spoon, etc. with shared appetizers. Valet parking is a little disorganized, but it's OK. Generally, I like the new venue better than the old spot.

    Excellent food with lots of options for everyone! The fusion of different cultures was delicious! The chicken enchiladas were delicious! The lamb burger was amazing! Both the pistachio crusted and pecan crusted fish were very good. The lamb pasta was phenomenal. And the fish and chips were light, crispy and delicious.

    The food as always was excellent. Plenty of vegan options for our girlfriend. Communication between our server and the bar was off. Didn't understand "on the rocks" and 2 dirty Martinis were spoiled by a mistaken sub for olive juice. However, Bruce came to the table and discovered the mix up. I love this establishment and will definitely be back.

    The food was pretty good. We came for the plentiful options for those with food allergies. The NY strip doesn't need a salad on top or sauce. The Margherita pizza had a ton of cheese which was pretty salty. Wife loved the fish dish and the boy liked his pepperoni pizza with vegan cheese.We had a great view of the kitchen, but the noise level was extreme.

    I can honestly say that the two times I've eaten at Rubbles Black the food was outstanding. Some of the best meals I've had eating out! If I didn't live out of town I would be a frequent patron. If you haven't been yet I highly recommend putting this restaurant at the top of your list!

    The food was salty on my ramen dish and the other fried chicken dish was cold and lacked flavor, especially in the cauliflower mashed potatoes. The pizza was mediocre at best and we asked for the pizza as is, but she insisted on keto and upcharged it.

    While our meal and service was fine; the valet backed a car into our table knocking my 5 year old daughter half a foot forward during our meal giving all of us a fright. While she's okay, she was scared as was my family. i was horribly disappointed when no part of our meal was taken care of. When we asked if it could be comped given the fact that the valet quite literally hit our table while dining on their patio, the manager asked us "do we have a problem here" and then took on a defensive position saying "the valet company is not associated with us. They pay us to be here to park cars. That would be me paying for someone else's mistake" I have never felt so undervalued as a patron. The valet is serving the restaurant that we are dining in and my daughters seat got hit by a car they were parking while dining at their establishment. The manager said over and over again "sorry, but it's just not my fault". Ruggles Black is a great restaurant with plenty of business and they won't suffer from losing us a as patrons or one bad review, but i cannot believe that the restaurant would act this way to our family of 4 rather than make this right. I'm not anyone important in the houston restaurant scene, and clearly not someone valued at all to Ruggles Black or their management.

    The waiter was ok. However, two meal was served on one plate. Meal for one person on the table came after 20 min as compared to others. Music was loud. Hence people were talking very loudly. Extremely noisy. Very difficult to carry conversation.
