The place looks good, it is a little pricy though and I ordered a few sushi rolls which were not very good. I didn't even finish them. Plus, the waiter was just trying way too hard to be excited and it was actually turning us off.

the main reasons i wanted to visit this restaurant were after hearing rave reviews of the food. in honesty, i believe it was way too pricey. the food was mediocre. the atmosphere was friendly and nice yet the food was not up to par. the menus need an editting job with many more creative Asian dishes. I can find pad thai or dim sum or peking duck in China town. Overall, it was not as great as I had thought.

I have lived in NY my whole life. I must say that Ruby Foo's may be my favorite restaurant ever! Not only is the food delicious and prepared to your liking, but, the service is impeccable. I enjoy every dish that I eat there and the desserts are fantastic!! The decor is beautiful and unique as well. All in all, Ruby Foo's is the place to be!

The restaurant looks nice and the staff is efficient and friendly, but the food just isn't that good. The Szechuan pork rolls were served in an excellent sauce but the pork itself was tasteless. The sushi rolls (I ordered the Thai filet mignon and the Florida rolls) didn't have much flavor and tasted a bit odd. The three sauces they give you do not do anything for the sushi except change the color, and even the wasabi was pale and tasteless. The Thai ice cream sundae was the one highlight of the meal, but it wasn't enough to salvage a boring, overpriced eating experience.

Interior is nicely decorated, however the food is poor, esp for the price. food was lukewarm. stir-fry had too much black bean sause. i'm not an authenticity snob, but ruby foo is just not good. chinatown has much better food, altho it'll prob be lacking in the ambiance. bottomline, food was too salty. not even the ingredients were fresh, the mushrooms were from a can. for the price, about 20 a dish, it doesn't make sense that the mushrooms are from a can. 35 a person is fine for a decent lunch, but this was just subpar. in addition, our waiter disappeared, didn't bother checking on us once, or the tables near us.

As a native NewYorker I decided to see what some of the mixed reviews were about this restaurant. As a lover of Pan Asian food this was not up to par. Crabmeat sushi was ordinary and not tasty. Lettuce wraps were not plentiful and the main dish of PaqTai was very dry. It was not as special a dinner that I had hoped for. Beautiful decor does not mean good food.

I went here expecting good things because of all the positive reveiws, and was actually quite unimpressed. The service was fine, but who goes to a restaurant for the service? The food was....ok, I guess, definitely not delicious or even good. Passable, one might say. But barely passable. Food lovers be warned: this is NOT a "must eat at while in NYC" place. (And it actually IS quite touristy and expensive in addition to being mediocre.)
