Mr. Ruby I do love your restaurants. Your steaks are across the board better than any other place and the Filet Mignon never disappoints. Amazing atmosphere, amazing food and portions. There is just not much more to say than this is an amazing establishment and you wont find a better steak anywhere let alone in Cincinnati.

A super steakhouse. Beautiful bar, general layout. Great wine selection, excellent service, knowledgeable bartenders. The steaks are to die for. Yes, it's pricey but you get what you pay for.

Often presentation trumps quality and preparation. Not so here. Exquisitely seasoned and presented, from salad to dessert, this restaurant impresses. The filet is second to none and creme brûlée is the best I have tasted outside of New Orleans. Impecable service makes for a delightful evening.

Took the folks there for a birthday celebration and have to say this was one of the best steaks I've had anywhere. Bone-in cut and the flavor was just fantastic. Superior service, great cocktails and wonderful desserts. A bit pricey for Cincy but you cannot go wrong with a meal at Jeff Ruby's.

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
