we have yet to be disapointed. Food is excellent as always as is the service and atmosphere. Too many good things to chose, but we will keep trying. Only thing is going to the restroom is thru a service area not to good.

As a Manhattanite, I had prepared myself for a tourist trap meal in Times Square. Our experience was anything but that. A fantastic choice for great service, food, and ambience in Times Square. Our party of 6 was sat promptly at our reservation time. The decor was gorgeous and our out of town guests were highly impressed with the glamour of the space. We had one guest who is a particularly picky eater, and our waitress accomidated her requests graciously. This is an excellent choice for Pre-Theatre and large parties. As for the other reviewers who complained about the prices... Guess what... New York is expensive. I would suggest that if you want something cheap, go to McDonalds. This is well worth the price. Highly recommended

I see the complaints of others, which makes me wonder if they eat in Times Square often. Expensive? Yes. Average? Well, I'd say above average but definately main stream, as advertised. The six of us were a half hour late for our 6:00 reservation, prime time on a pre-theater Saturday night. I called just before 6 and explained our situation and they said they would do their best to hold it for as long as they could; at worst we would be put on a Priority Waiting List. When we showed up, they seated us immediately - they even had to wait while we checked our coats. Seating was very cramped, I think I could have snacked on the gentlemen's food who sat next to me because we were so close. This is exactly what I would expect from a popular restaurant at prime time. Noise levels loud? Oh yes. Again, expected. For the six of us, we shared the calamari (should have ordered 2 of those), shrimp and lobster spring roll (also should have ordered a second because both were delicious), and endamame (one was fine for 6); the tuna and salmon sashimis were both Very Fresh and went very quickly, not so for the Spicy Diablo roll (although exactly as advertised, it was fine just not a favorite) or the BBQ eel and avacado (also meh); for the mains, we had the Stir Fry Filet Mignon (more mushrooms than mignon), Kung Pao chicken (a favorite), along with the Peking Duck (very delicious). Although my favorite was the Peking Duck, the others stuck with what they know, i.e., chicken. At 7:30 our waitress, who was both knowledgable about the food and very pleasant, came by to ask if I wanted the check since she knew we were seeing a show. After payment, she was there immediately and I didn't have to hunt her down. For less than $50 pp (excl tip), we had exactly what we expected: a very pleasant Americanized Japanese dinner. If we wanted upscale, we would have gone to Blue Fin, or if we wanted authentic, we would have gone to Sushi Zen. Overall it was a very good experience and I would definately go again.

The food is mediocre at best. And the only thing I can say is "$20 for Kung Pao Chicken?". At these prices I could eat at one of the premiere restaurants in China Town.

I had the shrimp tempura roll which was good also had the spicy/crunchy tuna roll that was bland, bland - no flavor at all ....

I have been to Ruby Foo's many times, with some of my visits not meeting my expectations. On a recent visit however, I was pleasantly surprised with the delicious sushi, good pad thai and chicken dish. We went for a pre-theater meal and were seated promptly and the service was very attentive. I think that this is a great option not only for pre-theater, but for lunch or dinner. Not sure about reservations, but if they do take them during pre-theater time I would make one. It gets a little crowded during that time.

They brought our dessert with check, and before we even got to 1/4 of it, they rushed and begged us to leave, so that they could sit people waiting in the lobby. If they were so busy, why bothering us with dessert menu in the first place? We never got to finish our dessert and such a waste of money!
