This was my first trip to Jeff Ruby's after hearing much about it from friends and co-workers. I would just like to say that they did not do the place justice!! The steak was the best I have ever had, seasoned well, cooked to perfection, and served at the perfect temperature for enjoying. I have visited Ruth's Chris, Morton's, etc...... More

A high end steak house that is perfect for special occasions or to see and be seen! High end steaks and seafood with large side dishes can make any occasion special. The bar is open and hopping with people that want or have fun.

This is absolutely the best steakhouse in Louisville! My hubby and I go here for every occasion, it's our favorite out of any steakhouse we have been... Anywhere. Period. The service is impeccable, although we do have some favorites! We always order the shrimp cocktail, the Freddie salad and creme brûlée for desert... And of course, steaks!!! Their sushi is... More

We went to have a great meal for our 20th anniversary and Jeff Ruby's did not disappoint. The service, food quality, and value were excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection and delicious. The Steaks and potatoes were so huge we opted to split the meal, and still we were very satiated. The staff was attentive. Overall great experience. I highly... More

I have written several times about this place,but somehow I lost my trip advisor account and had to start over. If your in Louisville and want the best steak or seafood...this is the only place to go. I was with 11 other business friends and we all agreed,you can't top this place. Most of us had been to some of... More

Spent an anniversary here with my husband - the service was great and the ambiance very nice. Food was also very good, but overall, a little flavorless for me. Some of that might have been attributed to needing gluten free, but a high end steakhouse should have the easiest time with gluten free. Overall, I was glad I tried it... More

Yes, this place is expensive, but the food and service are exquisite. Nothing avant garde or super creative about it; just a wonderful place to go for a special celebration.

This place has the best steaks we have ever eaten. The side dishes are all excellent, and the crab cakes are amazing. Nothing we have eaten there has been less than fantastic. You can also order their steaks to cook at home, and they are also absolutely wonderful. This is our special occasion restaurant because of the prices, but I... More

This was by far one of the best dining experiences I have yet to have in Louisville. Though the restaurant was a bit crowded (which is always a good sign) the staff was so kind and very helpful when it came to making menu choices. The only part I would say could have used some improvement was in the attentiveness... More
