Since it had been over a year since we had dined at Ruka's and our last visit was very good, we ate there last Friday night May 23. When we arrived for our 7:30 reservation, there were only 5 other tables occupied and I was a little concerned. Our server took our drink orders and we received them promptly. When he took our entree order, he was unable to answer several questions I had about the grouper dish. It was described as Grouper with corn, fava and seaweed. As I am on a low carb diet due to my blood sugar, I wanted to know if the corn & favas were more of a garnish or as a side. He didn't know & didn't offer to find out. Of our party of 6 we ordered 5 different entrees. Our server turned in our order then we started our wait. After 55 min and still having not received our meal I finally was able to ask or waiter whether our order was lost or was there another problem. We were served in about 5 minutes. My grouper though in a miso like soup was dry & tasteless. What was it served on but a bed of corn & fava beans. My entire meal consisted of 4 ounces of overcooked fish. Only 2 in our party of 6 enjoyed their dinner. We would have been understanding if they had been busy but they were dead. Our waiter could have checked on our dinners but he seemed to be avoiding us entirely. We have a house in Highlands and eat dinner out 50% of the time we are there. Ruka's just got marked off our list.
