We we celebrating my mum's birthday with a group of us. Our waitress Amy(Annie?) was absolutely lovely and very knowledgeable. As many of us were vegetarian she was able to guide us through the menu wit ease and was very attentive throughout the evening.

The room has a great vibe with people clearly enjoying themselves and having a great time,

I would highly recommend Kneading Ruby to friends.

My favourite restaurant in Wollongong. Service is amazing, so quick and super super helpful. My partner and i’s parents were meeting for the first time and it was the perfect restaurant for that. Food is always incredible, favourites are polenta chips & the gnocchi which are their staple dishes!

Food, atmosphere and service was top notch but its disappointing they don't accept AMEX, i was here for a work function so the bill was large and the fact that they didn't accept AMEX was a deal breaker for me so i will not be able to return.

We were given a table next to the waiters station because apparently it would suit us better and not so far to walk........we are 50 but obviously not deemed worthy enough for a "good" table lol and to top it off the waiters station cupboard door consistently banged our table everytime a wait staff opened it.

Our food appeared minutes after ordering and was cold, perhaps it was pre-prepared order or a mistake that was passed on to us.

No condiments on table, when we asked for pepper a grinder was brought to the table but not applied to our meal, when we attempted use it the grinder was empty.
