This is the only place I get a steak anymore. I have learned my lesson and am willing to pay to make sure i always get quality...which i do here. I get the filet every time and every time it is simply superb.

There's something very special about dining at a Jeff Ruby restaurant. Unparalleled food and service, no matter which of the three Cincinnati locations you choose. We had friends visiting this week for the ATP tennis tournament so we made a point of taking them to Jeff Ruby's downtown. We enjoyed mouth watering steaks, delicious side dishes of mac-and-cheese, creamed corn... More

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves the finest beef in the city. With that being said, the bone-in six ounce filet did not live up to our usual exceptional meals. As a restaurant week special, the six ounce bone-in filet did not compare to the normal sixteen ounce bone-in filet on the regular menu. Our medium filets became medium-well, considering their small... More

Our waiter was great for most of our visit. Until the end when some VIP's appeared to consume his time. Then we had to wait & wait for our check (15 minutes). Then we had to wait & wait for our card to be brought back. Our food, however, was great!

Since this was the best ranked steakhouse in Cincy and we had some serious cravings for good steak we just had to come here. I knew nothing about it beforehand other than the few reviews I read on TripAdvisor, but we were pleasantly surprised. We dined here on a Friday, it was very crowded and I can imagine it is... More

I've only been here once and my steak was not cooked to perfection. I arrived very, very hungry. I ordered Medium rare. Not rare, not medium. Yes they made it right and cooked a new one. yes, the old elegance restaurant feel is kind of romantic. But, I'd rather eat at Tony's or Eddie Merlot's. Sorry, in this case -... More

I ate here with my wife on Friday, July 24th to celebrate her birthday. Our hostess was accommodating to our seating request. Our waiter (Kevin) and his assistant (Jess) were friendly, helpful and efficient. My wife and I split the crab bisque, Aronoff salad, mac and cheese and the ribeye steak. All were delicious (the Aronoff salad was missing the... More

We made reservations for our anniversary at Jeff Ruby's. The hostess lead us through the lovely main dining room into a back room with other customers who were wearing t-shirts and jeans. This was apparently the room for customers not worthy of the main dining room. We spent the dinner wondering what was wrong with us since we were dressed... More
