I could go on and on, but words would not do this please justice… I used to do a lot of traveling for business and I can tell you without doubt, while in Cincinnati you must try Jeff Ruby's.

Fabulous food and excellent service. Ask for a booth for party of four. Excellent steak and seafood too. Filet Minot was done just right at medium-pink in middle.Salads big enough to split or order 1/2 salad. Aronoff salad is a favorite. Great location. Easy walk from major hotels in downtown Cincinnati. Music in bar area.

We are going again this Thanksgiving weekend and I am so looking forward to it. The service is impeccable for a steak and seafood place. The waiters are very attentive and actually seem... More

You can't go wrong eating at a Jeff Ruby's restaurant when in Cincinnati. This restaurant is a Great place for steaks. Good, attentive service. I Love the Freddie salad. The ricotta donuts are really good too. A little loud if you are trying to converse with larger party.

Ate here with my wife in October. I eat there about twice a year and am never letdown. Usually have raw bar to start, Freddie salad and a filet. The meat is always PERFECT. It is expensive, but worth it a couple of times a year. Having eaten at top end steak houses in the country, this one (or the... More

It is a great steak house with a a decor that says old school steak house. Service was impeccable. It is expensive, but not unreasonable for a class 1 steakhouse in the middle of a downtown area. My wife and I had steaks, split a salad, half a dozen oysters, a side, two drinks, split a half bottle of wine... More

This restaurant is a jewel. Perfect for special occasions. Baby grand piano with bar seating wrap around. Piano player begins at 6pm. Beautiful decor and bar. Valet parking available. Reservations are highly encouraged. The hostess greeted us promptly. The wait staff were highly professional and dressed well. The manager visited our table multiple times, as well as all other tables.... More
