This place is refreshing and yummy! Their tomato basil soup in a bowl is amazing!! I also had a salad that was amazing it had goat cheese and almonds with some kind of vinaigrette. Wish I had one now. I was expecting the margarita pizza to be amazing as well, but it was ok. Try the sweet potato fries!! From what I have tried their I loved the soup and salad the best!

Ruggles Green is a great place to get organic food! Food is really good, and the atmosphere is very nice. However, parking can be a pain during lunch or dinner rushes due to their tiny lot. Ruggles Green is a little pricey, but that's expected considering it is a certified organic eatery.

This place is unique and they surely know how to promote their restaurant with things that should be way cheaper, but instead Ruggles Green makes its double the price. Making pretty much everything double the price then at any other place just because the food is ""organic"" is simply ridiculous as food should be organic as it is, but since it IS the United States people where people care more about their car than their diet it is not a surprise. The ""health freak"" people or whatever they call themselves, either have too much money or are just plain lazy idiots who cannot cook simple things such as Mac n Cheese or a simple salad which every kid knows how to do with ingredients from a Farmers Market for a fraction of the price that they charge you at Ruggles Green.
The food in itself is very good and fresh although I found the portions a little dissapointing. The service is friendly, fast and overall the place has a nice atmosphere.
So if you want to spend double of what you normally spend on lunch or just simply not care about how much food costs and want some tasty Italian food then this is your place to go.

I absolutely love this place! As a health freak type of person, I always have a hard time finding a place to dine it. Ruggles Green has variety of choices of food that you will definitely enjoy! They have the best salads, and they even have organic food that is definitely a top notch to me!
The only problem is, the place is small, and it gets packed quick especially on the weekend, but that really does not stop me from going!

I went eat at Ruggles Green for the first time this month and i absolutely loved it. I was iffy about going because I thought it was nothing buy healthy salads but I was wrong.They have all kinds of food. The food was delicious but the white chocolate bread pudding was the best!!!

Hallaluah!! Ruggles Green has made a dream come true. They furnish a restaurant that is truly delicious, fresh, organic food and clean meats. For me there is more, because it is not only their fresh oranic tastly food, but 70% of their menu is gluten free. Celiac is a stomach desease that prohibits the intake of any gluten. I was diagnosed 11 years ago, and it makes dining out very dificult. I can actually get a fresh, tasty pizza, or a buffalo burger on a bun, yummy salads and their dressings are gluten free!!
All Ruggles Green take out containers are enviormentally safe and reuseable, or can be recycled as opposed to the styrafoam that no one wants to reclycle.
Thank you Frederic Marques and Chef Molzan for a job well done.
Let me start out saying that I am from NYC and it's really hard to compare most restaurants elsewhere to ny restaurants. Ruggles green is an awesome concept that I haven't really seen elsewhere. So when i came to visit Houston i was surprised to find how good ruggles green actually is...AND QUICK! I got the pepperoni pizza...I love pizza I'm from ny! But this was definitely up there on my list as well and is a GREAT alternative! When i next come to Houston I will definitely make a stop there again! I hear they have other locations and have only heard fantastic things about them.
To finish off my pizza I got the brownie to split with my coworker and needless to say, we wish we got our own!
My last words are yum yum yum!
I have been a fan or Ruggles GReen ever since it opened about two years ago in the Kirby/West Alabama location. It is clothes to my home, my kids schools, and basically where i remain! I go there maybe once a week or two week for salads, sandwiched, and tacos. I have kids from ages 4 - 10 and they LOVE the mac and cheese, the sliders and ALL the desserts!
Now that CityCentre location has opened, it has become the perfect place to meet my friends that live in Memorial and the Energy Coorider for lunch. Even dinner, where the entire CityCentre turns into a hot spot.
I would highly recommend BOTH Ruggles Green locations to anyone looking for healthy dining, YUMMY food, Kid friendly dining, and a great environment - especially the patio at CityCentre!

Recently I went to Ruggles Green for the first time. After hearing all the hype from it, i decided to try it myself. I had an amazing meal..starting with the Roasted Tomato Basil Soup. I'm very picky about my soups (especially tomato basil) and this was the one of the best i've ever had. It is baked with a crispy puff pastry on top with fresh mozzarella. It was absolutely delicious, and even enjoyed it when it was hot out!
My friend got the Wood-fired Quinoa Mac & cheese. It looked delicious and of course had a taste of it. I'm also picky about my cheeses, I don't like things too cheesy or a bad flavor of cheese, and this mac and cheese was right in the middle. The bread crumbs on top, topped it all off with a great kick!
Not only was the food great, but the service was also very fast and consistent. The waiters and staff are very friendly as well.
This is why I give Ruggles Green 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend Ruggles Green to anyone who enjoys good food. I will be back very shortly as I live and work fairly close!

I have been hearing about Ruggles Green from friends and I finally went there Sunday evening. I had the Goat Cheese Salad and a Pizza and they were both great. I want to mention that the patio is fantastic as it looks out over the lawn, fountains, and has it's own wine bar with great music. This may be the best patio in Houston.

I enjoyed my Southwestern Smoked Chicken Pasta and the atmosphere outside with the green and fountains but sadly have been very sick with food poisoning since that night of Sat. Sept. 4th. I missed out on my weekend trip and still can't keep food inside me for very long. The stomach pain is excrutiating. My husband informed the restaurant and they promised to look into the matter and call us back but unfortunately have not. I know someone else who also they there the same night and they too have food poisoning.

I have been so excited for the opening of the new Ruggles Green location at CityCentre. After visiting several times now, I wanted to share. The new location is just dazzling in atmosphere - sitting outdoors in the treelit park area with burning fountains and enjoying the spicy shrimp pasta was a little piece of heaven. (Not to mention that Anthropologie is just across the way!) Same great desserts, but new specials. Awesome place for a new location - service is great too (especially Walter!) Grand opening is tonight - can't wait!

I was really excited to check this place out in City Centre. What I did not expect was to get food poisoning. The menu looked great and the price was understandable for organic food. I had one of their burgers and it tasted great... a couple of hours later I regretted my decision. The longest night I've ever had because of vomiting. I went to my doctor the next day and he confirmed that I had got salmonella. Thanks ruggles green. I love your food but I will probably not return. I am not tramatized

I went with a couple of my friends to try this restaurant out. When we reached the place was packed on a Saturday night. The restaurant has a nice outside sitting as well however we had to settle for a booth inside. Really wanted to sit outside that day :)
Took us while to read through the menu, we ended up ordering a veggie burger, chicken salad, pasta and chicken burger. Out of which both the burgers were amazing and very good portions. The veggie burger was way different than the normal black bean you get at most other places. Definitely worth trying.
I would like to point out though the chicken in the salad was not good, my friend had issues with it (reason for one star less!). But the veggies in the salad were awesome.
The pasta was nice and flavorful. We ended up ordering a pecan pie dessert and shared it. The size was good and taste amazing, would highly recommend getting that.
Overall would recommend this place, do try it out..
