Fantastic steak house in downtown. Great food and great service. Definitely have the steakhouse hash browns. Can't wait to return! Becky and Katherine were more than amazing.

Jeff Ruby is to restaurants as Walt Disney is to Theme Parks. They both know how to do it and do it right. 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.

What more can I say? From the atmosphere, to the service, to the food, everything was exceptional. And I was surprised to learn that if you don't see what you want on the menu, simply call a couple of days ahead, tell them what you want, and they will make it for you. How many places will do that??? The... More

I LOVE Jeff Ruby's restaurants. This one is probably the most expensive, but the unique atmosphere, amazing menu, and attentive staff make it all worth it! The Freddie salad is a MUST (if you like bacon), the mashed potatoes are divine and any steak is awesome (I prefer the filet). Any dessert is worth the indulgence, but the creme brulee,... More

I have been there only once but it was a good evening. Service was great, food was delicious. The only thing I can say in the negative was that it was pricey. Fortunately I was a guest of someone and didn't foot that bill since it was a tad out of my league. Example: This was about 4 years ago... More

Nice atmosphere, good menu variety, slightly pricey for what you get. Bread and unsalted butter were tasteless, scallops were tough, filet cut steak was dry but had a flavorful crust. Waiter was not on top of drink refills. Chicken was very undercooked. It was taken off the bill after we pointed it our. Waiter said "yeah, I noticed that" and... More
