Service was great and staff was friendly. Food is delicious, a bit pricier. Noise level is *loud* (it was Saturday night), but definitely would recommend the restaurant find some sound dampening material. I’m all for an energetic vibe, but it was borderline uncomfortable and I could not hear my dinner partner at all.

It was nice to see the restaurant full, but the volume was excruciating. We ignored it and yelled across the table like everyone else was doing, because the food was worth it. Fresh, delicious, flavorful bites of amazing food. The best Mexican food. Next time, we'll eat outside.

Had the most wonderful meal! The Bunuelos and the Ribs Istmenas were the true standouts as well as the cocktails and the mezcal tiramisu. Can’t wait to go back and try more mole items and have a few more cocktails!

Also our server was an absolute delight and made excellent suggestions. The only slight negative is that our entrées took a bit longer to come out than I expected.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing from the service to the food. Tacos are made with in house made fresh tortillas. Their ribs are out of this world and that house salsa is the best I’ve ever had.

Food was different than typical Mexican. Very tasty and large portions. Background music too loud even after we asked them to turn it down.

An absolute gem. Perhaps the best upscale Mexican cuisine in Astoria. We now fully appreciate the artful difference between familiar TexMex preparations and authentic Oaxacan creations. A welcome addition in an especially restrictive time.

Mexican, kicked up a level- tastes fantastic, best mole ever, plate presentation is very nice. Service was fantastic, like 4 people waiting on us, and they threw in a surprise complementary delicious bite as an appetizer. Serving size was ample. 3 of us got out of there for about $40 per person including signature drinks- a pretty good value for the quality of food and service.

Excellent food and service. We started with the calamari which was fried with jalapeño slices. Then the fish tacos and shrimp costenos. Everything was great

I haven't eaten inside a restaurant since 2020....until Ruta. I couldn't have picked a better restaurant to dine. Ruta is a welcome gem in Astoria! Cosme, our server, was friendly and attentive, mindful of my gluten allergy and recommending dishes accordingly. From the margaritas to the freshly made chips and salsa to the appetizers and the entrees - everything had an intricate profile of Oaxacan flavors. We ordered the Sexy Oaxaca and Como La Flor margaritas, the shrimp flautas, esquites, cochinita tacos, and the enchilada mole. Not one dish or drink was disappointing. I feel lucky to have brought home leftovers and eagerly looked forward to having it for lunch the next day. Thank you, Cosme and Ruta! I can't wait to return!

Food was just amazing, we enjoyed it so much. The shrimp appetizers and cochinillas tacos were really good, but the ribs are to die for. And try desserts if you have space left, very surprising and tasty flan with fruit sauce.

Iris couldn’t have been more kind. Made 8pm inside rez for a Thursday night. We had the restaurant to ourselves. we ordered the guacamole and chips, enchilada mole and fish tacos. All was fresh, hot and delicious. Salsa music was playing and there was so much space we wanted to get up and dance. Can’t wait for them to get their liquor license.
