Super yummy food, helpful staff and just an overall great time!
The food was essentially very good, except for the salt level.
The mussels were so salty many people would not have been able to eat them.
Some other dishes were maxed out on salt too.
The chef needs to let the food speak more by itself as all the flavours were great and reduce the heavy handedness with the salt shaker.
food was amazing, we had the garlic bread, heirloom tomatoes, gnocchi and beef cheeks as well as the tiramisu for dessert. could not fault our meal, our server was excellent as well.
Awesome great customer service, had heaps of fun.
Absolutely loved it. Good was amazing. Our waitress was so good 😁
The five of us enjoyed everything about Kneading Ruby the garlic bread is very innovative & a real surprise the sweets were just great the place has a very happy feel about it.
Thanks for a great lunch
Great welcome at the entry. Great choice of wine, beer and Cocktail menu to compliment.
Service was 5 star with constant follow up and providing meals within a timely manner.
Perfect alrounder with proper in house homestyle meals. This is a must see to experience the experienced staff that make it so welcoming .
We loved it. We had a great time at Kneading Ruby, the food was incredible and even better that it was able to be altered for Coeliac and still be incredible. Will be back ASAP.
Absolutely loved the food and Ive never experienced such great service as Kneading Ruby. Has always been a favourite and will always go back 😊
The service was great! Staff were friendly and helpful. Cocktails were delicious and the food was amazing, especially the gnocchi!
I would definitely recommend Kneading Ruby to anyone.
Food was absolutely yummy. Garlic bread is soooo good. Will be back again
The food and staff at Ruby’s are reliably delightful. We had an early dinner with 3 kids 6and under and the waitress helped entertain them with games of Simon says and eye spy. The lavender sherbet cocktail was delicious.
We always visit Kneading Ruby when in Wollongong. The food is wonderful and I can’t speak highly enough of the staff. Highly recommended!
Food is outstanding and highly recommend the gnocco fritto!!!! The staff are extremely welcoming and very friendly.
Absolutely delicious as always! Great food and fantastic service. Kneading Ruby never lets you down!
One of the great restaurants of Wollongong with people coming from all around to try their chalkboard menu. The heirloom tomatoes are a must alongside the recently vego-ised ragu, service is superb and super friendly.
Amazing food & staff! We love going there for special occasions
Their service is super good but we asked to take away the rest of our pizza and they forgot to give it to us back, at the end the process of payment was a bit slow. The food is really good and the place is beautiful
Always a great place to go for dinner - casual but nice.
This is our go place for a family get together. And I love that they have lots of gluten-free options :)
Delicious as always! Great variety of meals designed to share. Wonderful service, knowledgeable, fun and friendly staff.
We come here a lot and normally really enjoy the place - this last time (Father’s Day lunch) our waiter disappeared half way through the meal and we hadn’t ordered The mains. None of the other wait staff would respond so I had to go up and order, and we were assigned another waiter. The service was fine after that, and it was a nice meal, just took the shine off what could have been a really special Father’s Day lunch.
Kneading Ruby’s is undoubtably one of the best restaurants in the Illawarra, from the service, food, drinks, ambience - nothing leaves you wanting. We dine regularly with our family of 5 adults, and find that even the self promoted ‘fine dining’ restaurants in the region could learn a thing or two from the service & food quality provided here. Definitely a cut above the rest. Kudo’s for an excellent family Father’s Day lunch today. Nothing is rushed, yet everything is served in a reasonable time frame & the food quality is always excellent.
We had a great birthday and father's day luncheon which was excellent. The set menu included all our favourites from the decadent garlic bread, pillows of gnocci and succulent pork, capped off with our choice of pizzas. Definitely worth a visit; excellent food with a casual ambiance and attentive but not intrusive service.
Highly recommend these guys know how to make great food, provide exceptional service and create a warm atmosphere. Love this place!!!
Great night with friend celebrating my wife’s birthday !
Food and service was great as usual. We shared entree and main meals and there was plenty to eat. Service was great.
Just want to take the opportunity to thank the team at Kneading Ruby for an amazing dinner last Friday 4th September. Our waiter Jackson, introduced himself and set the tone from the get go - so helpful, full of energy, knew his menu with his eyes closed - we appreciated the service, delicious meal, amazing cocktails and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Wollongong!
Set menu was very generous, food was tasty and fresh.
Great food friendly, attentive knowledgable staff. Highly recommend.
Our whole party of 7 loved the food the amiance the service - everything. thank you
Amazing food and cocktails, great service and love the dining space.
The hardest thing about coming here is deciding what to order, cause you know everything on the menu is going to be sensational! Always amazed at how perfectly cooked the seafood is, and the service is very good too! Beautiful, modern Italian cuisine at its freshest!! Highly recommend coming.
It was very good. I prefer the reduced table numbers as I always found it too busy and noisy in the pre covid format
Never leave disappointed from here, great value and great staff . One of my favourite places in Wollongong.
Always awesome, we’ve never been disappointed
Most delicious Italian restaurant in Wollongong!!!
The service, the food and the overall ambiance was awesome. Definitely will dine there again.
Enjoyed our dinner, the service and care taken by all the staff. The time taken by staff to help us select a wine was impressive. We were also impressed at care taken in observing the COVID-19 protocol. The staff cleaned all surfaces as tables were emptied, this is definitely not happening in all eating places. Thank you for a lovely evening, we will be back. :))
