We returned after dining here about a year ago, and it is amazing. Courses are dazzling to the eye and palette, original, and delicious. The flavors are complex but work together very well. And this is a place where the courses taste every bit as...More

Its hard to make an intimate room stay quiet at meal time. Ruxbin succeeds by giving you a dining experience that keeps your attention on the food and places conversation on the proverbial back burner as course after course (three or five course options are...More

Overall a very nice experience. Service was wonderful, flavors very good, although nothing was other-worldly. Paid street parking is available in front and across the street. The place is small and tables are quite close to each other. The last three in back are so...More

Ruxbin offers a fixed-priced four-course meal -- with a few extra treats or palate cleansers. The food, especially the venison, was outstanding. The atmosphere was warm, and the service was friendly and helpful.

Every dish looked like a work of art. We felt like we were on Top Chef. It was delicious adventurous food with an Asian influence. Just remember to bring your wine, they are BYOB.

I also respectfully disagree with the glowing reviews of Ruxbin. We dined there last night and thought it was ok. As another reviewer noted, the booth seating is much too uncomfortable to sit in through the entire dinner. Secondly the portions are extremely small. We...More

We found Ruxbin to be incredibly expensive for what it was. Food was just OK -nothing special. For all the hype, we were expecting a lot more. The prix fixe menu was annoying. It didn't used to be that way. They should go back to...More

Yes, Ruxbin is still BYOB. They've also recently changed their menu format, and offer only a $65 prix fixe dinner.
