Our night was very pleasant. The food was amazing and the service was really good. Our waitress was very pleasant and very helpful when we were deciding what we going to order. She was checking up on us to see if everything was good which was nice. All in all our dinning was pretty much perfect.

Excellent all round. 8 of us opted for the banquet and found the value for money was excellent. We were all so full by the end.
Service was friendly & attentive but not over the top. Wait person even gave us options of where to go after which suited our group perfectly.
all food served was exceptional.

The customer service was outstanding and the food was excellent. A shame there's no mascato in your wine range. Perhaps a sweet Riesling could be added? Thanks for a great night. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves and got to celebrate our wedding anniversary in a lovely way

Waitress forgot to get us a menu at the beginning of the night. She then forgot to put our second drink order through. She then offered us dessert before our main had even come out. Food was ok but seriously overpriced and the service was terrible. Would not recommend to anyone and will not be returning.

Not a fan. It's not even welcoming before you get inside. The door isn't an obvious entrance, no sign saying "open" one doesn't even know it's a restaurant
Food was meh, I didn't find anything delish. The pickled beetroot just tasted of vinegar. This pizza had hardly any flavour. The garlic bread was just oily.
Sorry. Really not a fan. I won't be back

I find the menu construction at Kneading Ruby's to be always to be commended. the balance between the dishes of moving beyond Australian traditional Italian food to be refreshing. The service was attentive and professional. The open space suits the sought after atmosphere but I was a bit cold on the night we visited.

Has a great atmosphere. Table service boarded on "over-attentive" especially with the constant topping up of our "Sparkling" & "Still" water without being asked. When I paid for the dinner I was billed $24 for 4 bottles of "Sparkling" water than I never asked for and came in a unlabelled decanter. This felt very deceptive. Took the shine of the experience.

Great food and service. Loved that we were seated at a round table as makes it easier to be sociable and easily chat to everyone in the group.

I love the chilled out and groovy atmosphere – every party, small or large just all gel together seamlessly. I definitely would return to try different dishes. The garlic bread was divine followed promptly by mouth watering gnocci. The pizza was yummy, but it came out too quickly after the gnocci,so we couldn't really enjoy it all hot. The waiters absolutely know their menu and guided us to a great balanced suggestion.

Kneading Ruby was wonderful. The ambience is beautifully comfortable & inviting & the staff are extremely attentive to the customers needs. They were all very knowledgeable concerning the menu, cocktail & wine lists & were happy to provide a taste of the wine before we bought a bottle. The food was fresh, innovative & delicious with great flavours & plating - my favourite was the gnocchi with goats cheese, prosciutto & green peas.
It is a great space for any group size, with tables for 2 set away from the larger group tables for larger bookings.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, the service & the abmbience & would highly recommend Kneading Ruby to everyone - Thankyou for such a great evening, we will be back

Kneading Ruby is a beautiful place to dine and catch up with friends or loved ones. The service is excellent as that’s hard to find at some places and the food is delicious. Worth every dollar! Can’t wait to go back

We had a work function for 14 people and even thought the restaurant was noisy we had an absolutely lovely time. We had the $40 per head meal and could not fault it. Our waitress was exceptional. We would recommend Kneading Ruby.

The food was delicious, however the servings are quite small for the price. The staff were all very polite and helpful despite the restaurant being busy, though it did mean it was very noisy inside.
