Nice ambiance / live music / professional service... Our mussels appetizer was good but not great - not enough sauce. The Steaks were great! Filet on the bone and a NY Strip both cooked perfectly. Green beans delicious...but the star was the potatoes Anna! OMG it's a must!!! The carrot cake looked great but was disappointing... i'd definitely return -... More

We have been enjoying Jeff Ruby's restaurants since the beginning days at the Precinct. He has earned his reputation for excellence and his legacy will outlive most of us. Last night we were celebrating my new job offer and Ruby's was literally my first choice. From the valets initial warm and pleasant welcome to the fun and informative bartender Rebecca... More

The ambiance and food. Began our evening having a drink at the bar and met some friendly guys sitting next to us. Loved our table by the window. It made our anniversary very special.

I had the filet mignon. It was tasty. The sides are nothing special - the potato casserole meh, asparagus nothing special. Service was good. The decor is old-school. It's dark with ornate chandeliers. Reminds me of the prohibition era. Super expensive. I don't know if I would go back although it was a great meal. Perhaps not a great value.

I am from Europe and the best Steaks are served in the US in my opinion. If you want a good Steak and are in Cincinnati - go to Jeff Ruby's. Number 1 place for Steaks

We've gone to a Jeff Ruby restaurant to celebrate our anniversary the last 5 years (Precinct last year, but all others were at the flagship location). The steaks are always wonderful served as ordered and requiring nothing more than S&P. The potatoes Anna were brown on top and very tender and the Freddie salad is quite good. The sliver of... More

What a great spot! My friend and I were so looking forward to dinner here and we were not disappointed. We were greeted politely and seated right away...be sure to make a reservation. Promptly greeted by our server, who was great. My friend had wine, I had club soda...some servers have an attitude if you are a non-drinker, but this... More

If you find the best then there is no reason to keep looking. They have it all. My Porterhouse was amazing and big enough to split w my wife. The oysters and shrimp were as fresh as if we were on the coast. This is one of the best in US for steak and the atmosphere is best in Cincy!... More

Never disappoints. Terrific steak. Cooked exactly as ordered and preferred. The staff was very attentive to our large group and really made us feel welcome. A great place for that celebratory steak dinner!
