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.

    The food was delicious! There is such a wide variety of food options I will definitely be returning with everyone I know to try them all! There was also an abundance of deserts to try, which is great since many places only have a small selection. The restaurant decor and ambiance is beautiful. My boyfriend and I even had the pleasure of the chef coming by our table. It was very evident he is passionate about the quality of every aspect of the restaurant.

    We had already eaten elsewhere to celebrate an award but wanted to just have drinks at Ruggles Black. But we got drawn in to their menu so we ordered a few appetizers and dessert, too. Great service. Food is so good!

    Friends of ours introduced us to Ruggles Black and we absolutely love it as we are on a Keto diet. We just can’t say enough about our 2 experiences there. It will definitely be one of our date nights every time we come to Houston for medical followups. All the food we have tried is absolutely phenomenal! We also love the decor and ambience of the restaurant. The employees are also very friendly and accommodating. The noise level can get a little elevated but we are not complaining. The restaurant is crowded so one would expect a higher noise level. Maybe one visit we will try the regular menu on a cheat night!

    Food was ok. Very loud. Service was not good. 20 minutes between each visit from waitress. Didn’t receive a drink we ordered. Had to finally ask another waiter for our check. Had planned to stay and have an additional drink after dinner but didn’t wait around for service. Ended up just going to a bar down the street.

    Love this place especially for their appetizers and drinks. My husband like to go places where we can sit on a patio an enjoy a couple drinks and appetizers. I had a lavendar pisco martini that was amazing and fun, and we shared the oysters, tuna ceviche and mussels. The mussels in a curry sauce here are one of my favorites in town!!

    Great service and great food. I had a party of 10 and each person enjoyed the food and was complimentary of the service. E.J. Was our waiter and he did an amazing job, smiled with every person and we truly enjoyed his service. The chef even came out and spoke to us and made sure we had the best service. Would recommend!

    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.
