If you want a great burger, this is the place. The burgers are large and come with thin fries and onion frills. Restaurant is on two floors and has a party room. Service and atmosphere are good. The noise level is high and much lower on the upper floor.

Great atmosphere and decor - a bit of a Parisian feel. Good service with large appetizers-cheese fondue. Entree was a nice crab cake. Great side salad.

Had a very nice brunch their with my son. Place was crowded and people was wating in line to get a place. But even so you did not wait for long to get a table and then food came in quickly. By the way the food was excellent.

Our personal standby. Key items I recommend - the raw bar is always excellent - both for their daily selection of fresh oysters or for their raw tower. They also have a nice daily selection of specials - keep an eye out for the osso bucco. Regulars on the menu worth trying - steak frites, liver and onions (if that... More

The brunch menu is varied and there are some unique items to choose from. Although Ruby's is known for its seafood, the other items are quite good as well. I have eaten at Ruby's more than once previously and I wanted to add my prior visits to this review. In the evenings, the restaurant can get quite loud and some... More

Had a business lunch here. The main room had great acoustics so that we were able to talk without speaking loudly to one another. Service was attentive without being intrusive. As a seafood restaurant, I was impressed that the restaurant did not have a fishy odor. As a vegetarian who is nut allergic, I was very disappointed that there were... More

Ruby's is a brilliant gem in downtown Rye. It is chic, casual and comfortable. It charms guests with its varied menu, friendly and professional service, and its lively ambience. Ruby's stylish decor showcases an authentic zinc bar from Paris, beaded chandeliers and ruby red drapes. From its coffered ceiling and tasseled sconces down to its marble mosaic floor, no precious stone has been left unturned.
