I have been here numerous times, and it is expensive but the food is excellent. Quality. Here again you get what you pay for. Great steaks, excellent fresh seafood, breads are wonderful. Many people don't like the owner but one thing is for sure he runs a great restaurant. The only complaint I would have is the booths are tight... More

Promptly seated on arrival, our reservation was honored. Discreet and attentive service from the waiter and Dining Room Captain. I had an excellent Blue Crab Bisque that was superbly balanced with the right amount of seasoning and cream, large pieces of lump crab in the Bisque which was a nice touch. The bread and butter were very good. The Lamb... More

This was only my second trip to Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse but I have been to many of Jeff Ruby's other restaurants, including his original steakhouse, The Precinct, several times. One thing that is consistent across all of his restaurants is exceptional service and an upscale dining environment. Typically, Ruby's steaks are wonderful, but this time I had The Cowboy Ribeye...

We got the consistent great service and food you would expect from this steakhouse. Wait staff were courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Can sometimes be annoying when they try too hard to up sell you on things like like appetizers, drinks and desserts. Our waiter was very good about not being overbearing about this. Each course came out at a... More

My friends wanted to stop for dessert and I expected to have only a dessert wine. Happily they had a spectacular creme brulee with seasonal berries and a flourless chocolate cake for gluten free options. The servers were prompt, knowledgeable and courteous. Also, my friends raved about the carrot cake and the cheesecake.

Mr. Ruby I do love your restaurants. Your steaks are across the board better than any other place and the Filet Mignon never disappoints. Amazing atmosphere, amazing food and portions. There is just not much more to say than this is an amazing establishment and you wont find a better steak anywhere let alone in Cincinnati.

A super steakhouse. Beautiful bar, general layout. Great wine selection, excellent service, knowledgeable bartenders. The steaks are to die for. Yes, it's pricey but you get what you pay for.

Often presentation trumps quality and preparation. Not so here. Exquisitely seasoned and presented, from salad to dessert, this restaurant impresses. The filet is second to none and creme brûlée is the best I have tasted outside of New Orleans. Impecable service makes for a delightful evening.
