Jeff Ruby's downtown restaurant is just as delicious as The Precinct. The decor is art deco and really neat. There is a cool wine room to be seated in as well. Live music is good but can be loud at times.

One of the best if not THE best place for steak in Cincinnati! Everytime I come to this steakouse, its really, really good! Waiters that wait on you properly, catch everything you ask for and make real suggestions rather than just trying to upsell or sell extras that arent required! I have never had to send a steak back here,... More

Nothing to say except top knotch. Worth every dollar. Professional knowledgable staff. Great Steaks! Rate it above Roast Detriot, Del Friscos, Mortons or like.

You just can't get better food than we had at Jeff Ruby's. Phenominal steak and fish - even the salads and bread were delicious. Didn't have room for desert as portions are large. The creamed corn, broccoli, and mac& cheese sides were outstanding as well. And we had some good red wine by the glass - not so easy to... More

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse in Cincinnati is great. It's a beautiful room, with nice chandeliers, a long back-lit bar, and comfortable seating. We were offered a cozy spot on a corner banquette by a window on Walnut. Very comfortable. The service is just perfect. The waiters here do not put on any airs, they are here to serve you a great...

The restaurant is beautiful when you walk in and the ambiance is great. Good music and mostly good food. My sister ordered medium rare and when it arrived the meat was clearly cooked well, you couldn't even see a pink area. When asking to send it back we were told the meat looks different when sitting next the window. This... More

From the time you walk in until you leave, you are treated like a king at Jeff Ruby's. Service and food are beyond excellent. Extensive wine selection and even the drinks from the bar seemed better than most places I've visisted. I suggest you start dinner with building your own raw bar. We went with the tiger shrimp, oysters and... More
