Straining to see a menu at a distance, especially one with wordy and unpunctuated pizza lists, is no fun at all.

Overwise, a highly pleasant evening.

We have been to Kneading Ruby quite a few times and are never disappointed with the service, and food.
From the moment we sat down we were looked after. Our entree and main meals came out in great time. Although we had a 7pm booking we did not feel rushed at all for the next sitting. Thanks again. We can't recommend you more highly. We will be back.

Kneading Ruby is the place to go in Wollongong if your looking for Sydney quality food. I have loved the food every time that I have been in. Service and atmosphere also match the high level cuisine.

Seriously good food and the cocktails were amazing but they really need the gin and pepper berry cocktail back. That was the best cocktail I’d ever had. I’d be an alcoholic if they brought it back. So good very impressed

Everything fantastic except noise. All hard surfaces so noise just echoes loudly. Hard to speak or listen to even someone that is right next to you.

What can I say??? Kneading Ruby is without a doubt the best restaurant in Wollongong, and not just for their amazing food, consistency and exquisite wines! For their attention to detail, the genuine and friendly smiles, the general atmosphere and the hard working team that makes it all happen. Easter Sunday will never be same without Kneading Ruby’s lamb shoulder. (And... nearly forgot, their front door is to die for! xx

Great atmosphere, knowledable staff with an excellent feel for service. Food tastes great! The only “negative” is that single glasses of wine is not served at the table, but that’s me nitpicking. Definitely a place to visit when in Wollongong!

As wonderful an experience as always! We arrived at opening dinner time and as a result were in a very quiet restaurant for the majority of the night. The pork was the star of our dining experience. We have made a habit of coming here for special occasions and this evening has done nothing to change that. We will be back. :)

Service is always excellent at Kneading Ruby. Staff are attentive but not over bearing. Felt like the chef may have changed as the Gnocchi which we often have was very different to how it has been in the past.

Nice new range of wines and plenty of organic and biodynamic options which is great to see
