Finish with the indulgent Chocolate Fudge Brownie for a truly spectacular meal. Perfect for an intimate dinner for 2 or a fun party night. Sumptuous booths, a gorgeous restaurant and a luxurious lounge make Ruby Blue the ideal venue for a midweek hangout or weekend treat. Happy Hour at Ruby Blue: 17:00 - 20:00, all drinks, everyday!

“Excellent Hen Do Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I had my hen do here on Saturday night and it was brilliant! we went for a meal in their restaurant to start with and the service was brilliant, our meals came out at the same time and quickly (which was good as we were all starving!) As for our waiter (Sam) I don't think I have ever met a more cheerful waiter - it was a refreshing change from having someone who clearly didn't like their job! He really made us feel welcome and had a good laugh with us as well (even sang some Les Mis songs for us!)

After dinner we went to the club, although it was smaller than we expected it was still good and the drinks were very reasonably priced for central London! we danced the night away and had a brilliant time! Certainly wont be forgetting my hen do any time soon!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Booked this meal along with a theatre deal last minute. Meal was a two course choice which was quite good. We both enjoyed the starter of fish cakes followed by steak and chips and fish pie with veg, all very nice, the service was excellent also their was a happy hour offering up to half price on certain drinks, situated in Leicester square very central with vibrant atmosphere great valuefor money

“A brilliant venue with a terrible door policy.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

A group of us visited for my partner's birthday and had a brilliant night. The music was great, the drinks were varied and good value for money. More importantly, the atmosphere was great-we had a brilliant evening.

Unfortunately, at around 2 in the morning, one of our party who was both sober and a willing paying customer was approached by the bouncers and asked to leave then escorted from the premises. He was offered no explanation as to why he had been asked to leave. Given that he was having a good evening and enjoying the party, this ruined everybody's opinion of the evening and we will not be returning.

“ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Came here as part of a theatre deal. included was a two course meal. The seating for some of the guests semed a bit bad,being seated by the window where smokers were outside. The staff were very helpfull and friendly and could not do enough for you. The meal............................the fact that the meal was included in the deal the price was £10. I suppose it was just about worth the price. Starters was Crab cakes which were tasty and very nice and a very fatty steak with a sprinkle of chips a very sparse meal and could not fill a saucer .At the time cocktails were 2 4 1. We did moan about the steak and got one drink taking of the bill, All in all if i was paying full price for these meals i would expect a lot more a hell of as lot more.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We booked a meal along with the comedy club. When we arrived there was a wait as they had no recollection that our party of 8 was booked there. After waiting over half an hour we sat at our table for us then to wait another half hour for us to get a glimpse of a menu.
Even besides waiting nearly an hour just to order, I would go there again. Staff we very apologetic and had brilliant people skills and changed our evening from moral being low from the wait to a very entertaining evening. The food was lovely and rather generous portions.
