I travel a lot. I love steak and steak houses. Steaks are amazing. It seems they have a rub on the steak that is just right and makes an amazing steak. Service is fantastic. Wine list is very nice. I can't wait to go back. Just a great independent American steakhouse. A must while in Cincinnati.

I have travelled the world all my working life. I've had great steaks sometimes at highly inflated prices. amongst my favorites in the past were the blue cow Belgium, the black fighting bulls Spain and Kobe beef in Japan, but I have never tasted anything even close to the steaks in this place. I've been there a few times now... More

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
