My wife and I have been on a steak kick, lately, especially dry aged. Although we had a first class steak in Dallas, two nights later we were ready for another! I looked on Open Table and found Jeff Ruby's in Cincinnati but the only available times were 5:00 and 9:30. We were thinking we might not arrive in time... More

Our reservation was set for 10pm but we arrived early so we sat in the bar area. To our delight the band that plays was amazing. Our server was amazing, informative on... More

I enjoy all of Ruby's restaurants. I purchased a gift certificate to give away to a client, but I can't wait to go back during this holiday season.

The steak was phenomenal and the MAC &... More

Jeff Ruby is a great spot. The soup was great and the steak was excellent. Not the best ever, but still a solid steak. I had the cowboy. It was well marbled for the most part. The lean section was tougher than I'd hope for, but the periphery of the steak was divine. The sides are good as well. I... More
