During a recent business trip I had the opportunity to enjoy great service and wonderful food at Jeff Ruby's. They have great choices for appetizers (shrimp, oysters, etc.), salads, sides and entrees (seafood & steaks). The service staff and manager were super. Food was well prepared to order and plenty of it. This ranks as one my favorite places to... More

Beautiful steak and excellent service! It was nice to have our waiter so knowledgeable about wine and could open a bottle of champagne properly!

It's all in the details and Jeff Ruby hires the best to make sure his vision and standards are what each of his guests receive. FYI the FIlets are incredible. his Mac & Cheese I will dream... More

We were here recently for dinner, compliments of a Christmas giftcard.. Excellent table with a view of the entire dining room. Paul was our server and he was efficient as was his assistant. Our dinner was delicious. Filet, New York strip, cooked perfectly. Sides delicious, salad was great, so was dessert. I was sad to see so many people in... More

We splurged for a celebration. We were surprised to have the private room just off the dining room. Spending over $200 on a meal for the 2 of us isn't our norm. Appetizer, steak & desert were wonderful. The potatoes Anna wasn't as delicious as I remember from our last visit. But really, we were here for steak, my husband... More

The Jeff Ruby family of restaurants remains the defacto destination of choice for steaks in the greater Cincinnati area. They have the best beef, great service and a memorable dining experience every time you go.
