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

When my friends suggested Ruxbin Kitchen for dinner and said we would have to get there at 5, I agreed but was wondering why in the world we had to get there so early. So worth it! We waiting outside before the place opened and then were among the first people seated (apparently there is normally quite a wait). The... More

Ate at Ruxbin for a wedding reception. The restaurant is relatively small, but that only adds to the experience. The multiple course menu was delicious and well portioned . For an out of towner from Tennessee the entire meal was great and I would definitely recommend anyone to visit. Be sure to visit the bathroom as well its a single... More
