The food at Ruta is fantastic. If you're going for the first time I highly recommend the Huatulco Enchilada, which is seafood (Crab/lobster, corn) and a habanero cream sauce on top. By far my favorite dish there. Chips are freshly made and ideally salted. Guacamole is fresh though next time we may get the spicy and the medium spice didn't have as much of a kick as we typically look for. Drinks are tasty and the menu for tequilas/mezcals is extensive.
This restaurant was absolutely delicious and terrific in every way. Great decor, very helpful service and the food looked stunning as it was brought to our table. Happlily, each dish tasted as good as they looked - if not better! We had heuvos rancheros - fab, and fish and pork tacos, and a mole appetizer. Can't wait to return!
As Always everything was wonderful the staff is on top of things and so gracious
This was my second time at Ruta, and we still think it’s the most delicious Mexican food around. Even the salsa and chips are beyond wonderful! This time I had chicken enchiladas in mole- perfection. My husband had huevos ranchero, the best he’s ever eaten. Plus our waiter and staff were helpful and kind.
Everything was good. The drinks were top! Must go in Astoria
wonderful service and wonderful food
Super friendly staff and very welcoming. All our orders came quickly and the food and drink was so so good. Third time here and I’d definitely recommend you visit!
It was not really what I expected the server was amazing super nice and friendly but the food was just got it. I got tacos de Cochinita Pibil they were super oily i paid 31 dollars for a mediocre steak. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if the ambiance was better but there were children running around in the outside seating. Overall really not impressed
The food was delicious. I recommend trying the tacos - you can have one fish, one shrimp and one chicken if you don’t know which one to go for. I also recommend the Palenque drink which is not on the menu. It has bourbon, pumpkin beer reduction, mezcal and mango purée. Excellent. Emilio was a great server and the ambiance is perfect for date night. Will come back soon!
As always Everything was wonderful love this place
We had an awesome Saturday lunch at Ruta Oaxaca. I’d been wanting to try it for a while since it’s always packed when I walk by, and it’s starting to pop up on lists of the best Mexican restaurants in NYC. It was great to be able to book ahead of time on Open Table. The service was warm and attentive. The food was outstanding. I had the chilaquiles with chicken and my boyfriend had the enchiladas Huatulco (with mixed seafood and habanero cream salsa). The portions were so generous that we had enough to heat up for dinner (and we switched dishes, so I can attest that both were great!) Even the complimentary chips and salsa were delicious. This is a gem in a great location in Astoria.
Second time here and I think this is one of the best authentic Mexican food place in all of Queens
food is delicious, best Mexican restaurant in Astoria.
Delicious food and the waitress was very accommodating when one of our guests was late. She didn’t rush us at all. Margaritas were strong in a delicious way!
Everything we ordered was delicious! The special guacamole with coconut and pineapple, shrimp tacos ,and fantastic chicken enchiladas in a wonderful mole sauce! Margaritas were also strong and well made! Service was charming and efficient!
Amazing every time!
Excellent and traditional Oaxacan cuisine. Friendly fantastic service. Beautiful dining space with open doors, lots of fresh air. Very organized about Covid vaccine compliance.
The traditional dishes were fantastic and definitely ask for the hot sauce. Everything is homemade including the tortillas. Absolutely fantastic and we will be back!
Our waitress, Salma, was wonderful and patient. It was our first time there and we had questions. She answered everything with such a great attitude. The food is so amazing and everyone that works there is professional and attentive. I had the short ribs entrée. Meat fell right off the bone and the puree was amazing! They have new regulars with us! The coffee flan was the perfect blend of sweet with a little bitterness from the coffee. Can't wait to go back!
This is our 4th time in this restaurant. The food & the service is very special.
We had an amazing meal at Ruta and can’t wait to go back. Every bite was delicious from the appetizers to the desserts. The brunch drinks are equally as good as the food and such a great deal!! We enjoyed every last bite and only wish we had room to eat more. The ambiance at the bar inside is great with a huge selection of tequila and mezcal, and perfectly cold beers on draft. Jose and his team are kind, attentive and beyond helpful when choosing what to eat and drink. Highly recommend Ruta and will be back very soon!!!
The whole staff made us feel welcomed and ambiance was beautiful. Mole was DELICIOUS. Thank you Jose and team for making it a wonderful evening!
Octavio is a fantastic bartender! He aces our drinks every time. We’ve been to Ruta many times (and usually leave very satisfied (and maybe a little tipsy)) but a little disappointed yesterday. The lamb chops were their daily special but not worth the $31 cost. Chops were fatty and tasteless. The spicy green salsa overwhelmed the entire dish. Stick to the tacos here - they’re the solid choice.
Excellent all around
Food, service, etc
Definitely will be back
I wanted to try everything but ran out of room for dessert. Enjoyed everything we got which included drinks, chips and salsa, ceviche, enchiladas, grilled octopus, and shrimp tacos. Service was excellent and attentive. The staff was masked and tables were spaced out.
Chef Carlos prepare the best traditional Mexican food north of Rio Grande.
Holy Mole!! We had a very nice meal with friends here. The staff was super lovely and the menu had a great variety of choices as well as some tempting specials. The portions are generous and I took half my entree home with me. The AC is a bit whimpy I do hope they fix that. But all and all a wonderful family run place with great food.
I have dined here several times and each time the food is consistently amazing. Full of flavor and interesting combinations. I recommend Ruta to anyone wanting a great Mexican restaurant.
Pretty overrated Mexican food. No AC.
Food and service was amazing!!
The chicken bunuelos are delicious. The guacamole didn’t have as much avocado as usual but still perfect. Love the mole sauce that comes with the chips. Love the skinny margaritas, so refreshing. The shrimp tacos are so fresh and the cochinitas tacos have great flavor. Service can be spotty, sorry, but tonight it was attentive. We did need more water on more than one occasion. Overall don’t miss ruta, my neighborhood fave.
So good and great service! Tacos are hefty and everything was great. Ordered the queso fundido, cochinita pibil tacos and the mole enchiladas. Recommend it all!
I have not had food this good in a while! Great dining experience, such unique and delicious food and cocktails down to the complimentary salsa and chips. Can't wait to come back!
Our food was again delicious!! Our waiter Cosme was so informative about Mexican food , it was great hearing stories about it Jose the manager was also gracious to meet us again and also check on us. This place is great will continue to go there.
The food and cocktails were lovely! Service was amazing too. Highly recommend
Fabulous service and delicious drinks!!!
Excellent food with service to match, I would definitely recommend trying, a gem.
Very nice ambiance, food was very delicious, albeit somewhat pricey
Just ok mexican food. nothing special but not bad!
The best margaritas I’ve ever had! The service is awesome as well
Ok good, no AC or fans- uncomfortable eating experience
