Food was horrible. The salad we started with had so much salt that we didnt taste anything else. Told the wait staff and their comment was they add salt on top. How much do they need to add that we couldnt eat it!? Then they asked if we wanted any salt on the fish (entree)! We said no salt as did not want to take the risk with a good piece of Halibut. The fish came out DRY, OVERCOOKED! The dessert was too sweet. Im a culinary chef so this was DISAPPOINTING !!!

We were out for a celebration dinner and we paid at the end around 10pm and were asked immediately to go to the bar and order more drinks or leave (the restaurant controls the pace of when you get your food). 5 of us ended up having a couple of drink each and their standard dinner - we felt like trash when it was over and we were forced to leave. It was clear there was not another table waiting. They are also big on pushing their "cross-sells portions" and you feel badly when you don't order them. Love that they add these in as options but we find their standard dinner to be more than enough food. I wish this place was not so rude - not the first time I have found them this way. Our main server for the evening was fantastic, it was the supplemental staff that were brutal.

It was an amazing experience. Fabulous food and our server, Anthony, was perfect. He was helpful, knowledgeable, had a great personality and lots of humour. He ensured we were both taken care of. I can’t wait to share my experience and return with other friends.

We visited the restaurant for the first time for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere was friendly and boisterous with a great soundtrack playing in the background. It is not a quiet place but this only added to our celebratory mood. The staff was attentive and good humored. The food was excellent and plentiful. We had the skirt steak with salad, potatoes and vegetables finished with cheese course and dessert. Everything was fresh and tasty. We got the cod cheek upgrade to accompany our meal and that too was superb. Dinner with a couple drinks came to about $225 For 2. We feel it was well worth it. We will definitely return.

Flank steak was cold. Ran out of asparagus by second seating Cheese plate underwhelming. Wine selection limited. Not what I’m accustomed to at Ruby. Had stomach issues afterwards. On a positive note, salad and brownie were delicious.

Waited two years to go to this restaurant. The host was very rude. Bartender started very nice. He made us cocktails and made up for the lack of waiter. 30 min later he told us he was the waiter. He was very intense and was over attentive which was very uncomfortable. We never ordered. We didn't like feeling like less than. Half the restaurant was full. No reason for such bad service.
