Jeff Ruby's filet mignon with crab rangoon is one of those experiences you tell your grandkids about. I was in Florida when I heard of Jeff Ruby's and the man told me "if you have ever go to Cincinnati you must go to Jeff Ruby's". I know understand why he said that. 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

I have been an avid fan of all Jeff Ruby's establishments for years. The great thing about eating at the bar is that one gets to meet some awesome people from all over the world! Last week, I met someone from NYC. He said they all would love to have a Ruby's in NYC. Proud to be Cynthia from Cincinnati!

Jeff Ruby's is not great at all. I ordered the steak to be medium rare and it was overcooked. I was not impressed with the waiter he had an attitude my husband and I were set clear in the back corner. When we go to other fine dining establishments such as Cameron Mitchells, The Wynn, Gordon Ramsey this clearly is... More

Dinner, ambiance , food quality was all excellent ! Price of beef worth the " splurge". Highly recommended. Server ,Tony, knowledgable, professional and courteous. Perfect for a special night or for a occasion . Definitely will return with guests. Be prepared for " you get what you pay for" . Look forward to one opening in Lex, KY!

The food at this upmarket steakhouse is faultless - delicious and cooked exactly to our requirements. The staff were very helpful and efficient, and it is in a nice location, with nice decor. The menu is extensive, and the waiting staff are able to offer recommendations and advice if necessary. However, it is very loud inside the restaurant, which did... More

I have been here numerous times, and it is expensive but the food is excellent. Quality. Here again you get what you pay for. Great steaks, excellent fresh seafood, breads are wonderful. Many people don't like the owner but one thing is for sure he runs a great restaurant. The only complaint I would have is the booths are tight... More

Promptly seated on arrival, our reservation was honored. Discreet and attentive service from the waiter and Dining Room Captain. I had an excellent Blue Crab Bisque that was superbly balanced with the right amount of seasoning and cream, large pieces of lump crab in the Bisque which was a nice touch. The bread and butter were very good. The Lamb... More

This was only my second trip to Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse but I have been to many of Jeff Ruby's other restaurants, including his original steakhouse, The Precinct, several times. One thing that is consistent across all of his restaurants is exceptional service and an upscale dining environment. Typically, Ruby's steaks are wonderful, but this time I had The Cowboy Ribeye...
