My husband and I both had delicious meals. He had the beef, while I had the vegan cauliflower aranchini. Wow! We are both still raving about our dishes to people days later. Will definitely be back for sure. Classy decor & faultless service.

Had been to Rubyos a few times but not in the last 18 months. I remembered having very high regard for both the food and service but this time around neither were forthcoming. We chose the $50 banquet menu which is, I must admit, very...More
