I’ve been there twice-please don’t ask....\r I'm still very confused & unclear as to why it has such high ratings. My folks are from the south & I DO know great southern cooking. The cornbread is always lukewarm & dry. However, the veggies are better (i.e. cabbage & greens). The honey chicken is good, but dry. Yes, the portions are small. I’ve never ordered the mac & cheese, because based on how the other food t... view more

The best southern cooking in NYC

I recently ate here and the Mac and cheese was so good I almost died!!! I also loved the waffles! When it comes to southern food Amy Ruth's is the only restaurant worth coming to in the city. I cannot wait to go back!

From Soul to Seoul

Imagine this, a group of Koreans and an African American women eating together for a birthday party on a Thursday night in the middle of Harlem. \r We had arranged for a large table upstairs for the party and were promptly given one. I was one of the first people to get there, and when entering the restaurant was whiskly greeted with a smile by the attendant and asked if I was there for the birthday party...LOL...... view more

Amy Ruth's Aims to Please

What a pleasure. We arrived around 9:30 on a Sat night. No wait for party of 4. After the manager informed us that our jerk-chicken orders could not be filled as they ran out of jerk-chicken, he delighted us with promise of complimentary dessert, all of which turned out to be on the money. I went with smothered chicken with mac & cheese and cheesy grits, all of which were top notch. The servers were chatty and friend... view more

Great food, lousy service.

I took my cousins from France here. There was a long line, but it moved very quickly. This two floor eatery has a fast turnover. We took a long time with the menu because we had to translate (try describing a waffle to someone without knowing the word in French) which bothered our waitress. We ordered 5 items for 6 people expecting typical Soul Food portions, which also bothered the waitress. Our food took an ho... view more

While my wife didn't have a _bad_ time at Amy Ruth's, almost every aspect of our meal was below average and could have been improved. \r \r We were greeted by an expressionless young woman at the door with no apparent interest in us. Despite there being at least one empty table in the downstairs seating area, we were ushered towards the back and upstairs to the second floor, which apparently used to be used as a mu... view more

NOT open 24 hrs on Saturday and Sunday!

OK, the food is great, but ... we called at 5am to take out and were told we had to come in. So, at 5:30am we hopped into a cab to go there. Upon arrival we were informed that they are CLOSED for a ""shift change"" between 5:30am and 7:30am! Why not tell us this on the phone?

To die for Mac and Cheese (and everything else)

The four of us were ravenous and anxious to see if Amy Ruth's lives up to its excellent reputation. IT DOES!\r The mac and cheese was so fine that I ordered a second dish of it to eat as my dessert. I've traveled and eaten a lot in the South and I'll put this restaurant up against most any southern establishment in terms of quality and quantity of food. Mmmmm....Good!\r
