We had a wonderful evening at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. We were seated in a romantic booth and could enjoy conversing with one another or just soaking in the ambiance. Service is always excellent in Mr Ruby's establishments. The food was perfect! They topped the evening off with cheesecake on the house to help us celebrate 37 years of marriage.

I have been going to Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse for over 10 years for both business and pleasure and it has been great every single time. Neal, the General Manager, runs a great ship and really makes sure everything is to your liking. The waiters are all great but my favorite is Tony. Tony makes the experience extra special each time.... More

As always, my experience at this restaurant last night was amazing! The service is top notch, managers are visible and friendly, drinks are refilled quickly, and the servers are friendly. The Jeff Ruby family of restaurants are my favorite by far. The food is always excellent - I ordered a filet mignon, mashed potatoes, and the Freddie salad. They did... More

Was taken to this Cincinnati favorite by my host, and walking distance from my hotel 21C. We had a private dining room and had good appetizers with wine. Had the crab bisque and the strip steak. Both were delicious and done nicely. Good for return visit.

We came with a group of about 20 people from out of town. The first thing I noticed upon entering the restaurant was the great vibe. They had a four piece band playing Jazz, Blues and Soul. Our group was seated right away. Our chilled seafood appetizer was fresh and delicious. The steak was so tender and tasty. We shared... More

Went to dinner with colleagues and our client to discover an incredible experience. From the greeting and coat taking of Laura, to the bar service of Sam, the experience and teamwork of the staff were top notch. We were upgraded to the nicest table when Christof stopped by to check on us and served by the best server Tony. When... More

Service, atmosphere and food, from start to finish, was excellent!! To start, make sure you tip your servers well because they deserve it. You won't get service like this anywhere else. I have been here several times and it never disappoints. I could write all day about the appetizers (especially the oysters florentine), steaks and crab cakes that melt in... More

There is no doubt the food is perfection but for a middle class family of five or more to dine here would cost their whole paycheck! Most Families would have to save for 6 months to enjoy a fine dinner here, which is great if they plan for it and expect it when they get the bill. I love the... More

We had a fabulous dinner at Jeff Rubys. The experience was excellent from start to finish. I enjoyed every part of our meal. I have to recommend the crab cake, potatoes anna, and their macaroni and cheese. Really enjoyed by Cowboy steak - ate less than half and took the rest home. Exquisite service. Visit later in the night to... More
