Based on a review in the NY Times, 4 of us had dinner here. There is no liquor available, so it's BYOB for a $5 fee. We had two appetizers (especially loved the octopus) and 4 entrees. If you are a big eater, this is not the place for you, as the servings are comparatively small. Unique combinations of ingredients... More

Four of us dined at Ruxbin on a Sunday evening and we absolutely loved everything about this place. We all agreed that this restaurant offered one of the best meals we had ever had. To start, the service is incredible. What the restaurant lacks in lavish decor is more than made up for in the 5 star quality dishes they... More

Very different décor. Small, friendly and they do take reservations now. All upscale food, nicely presented and excellent taste. BYOB which we love. 4 because its a wonderful neighborhood place but a little on the pricy side. Like the fact that their were couples/ friends and different groups of people. Go, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I visited Ruxbin on an anniversary trip. We LOVED everything Ruxbin had to offer from the popcorn to the pork belly to the hangar steak. My husband has declared the hangar steak as the best meal he has ever eaten. Highly recommend!! We cannot wait to go back!

We had a group of 5 with a gluten intolerant and a vegan... We all agreed that it had been our best meal out since Paris! The venison was like nothing I have tasted before, and the garlic fries are an addicting treat. Way to go!!!

I wasn't blown away by the meal here but it was still satisfying. The real allure of the place is the great value with BYO and no corkage fee. This allows you to have a pretty good dinner that is easy on the wallet. The signature hanger steak was the best thing we ate.

Put your name in line. Go to the neighborhood bar. Return when they call you cell. Open your own bottle of wine. Enjoy a unique and high quality restaurant in the best restaurant city in America.

I scored reservations last Sunday and had an incredible meal! I normally don't care for octopus, but it was amazing. (We splurged on the garlic fries simply due to a hangover, and they were just what I needed!) The apple & plub salad wasn't spectacular, but was still tasty. I had the branzino for my entree, and it was one... More

We started with garlic fries, flat bread, oysters trio,mmmm one better than the next. After that we had Pork loin, Hanger Steak out of this world. It's a feast of flavors and great service.
