“WOW! As good as it gets!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Simply AWESOME. I eat at a LOT of steak houses, so I was skeptical when the concierge said this place was "one of the best in Ohio" - yeah, right I thought... He was right! In fact, maybe one of the best in Mid West. No joke. I had the NY strip, Medium w Pepper corn sauce. Hash browns were incredible... Pricey and worth it all the way... HIGHLY RECOMMEND

“Very Good But Too Much Salt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

My wife and I are huge fans of Jeff Ruby's restaurants. We've probably been to his restaurants about 8 times. I have noticed that about 3 times the steaks and mashed potatoes had way too much salt. Don't get me wrong I love salt, but I started coughing when I bit into my first piece of the steak. It actually nearly ruined the steak. I scraped off what I could.

The mashed potatoes just once (out of eight times or so) were so salty that again I coughed and actually couldn't even eat them. We sent them back because they were simply not edible.

Before ordering your steak you might want to tell them not to add salt or go lightly on the salt.

“OMGosh....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This was by far our best dinner while in Cincinnati. The food and service were amazing. Very pricey, but the food was outstanding. Made for a very special anniversary dinner for us.

“Best meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I went here last night for the first time.. Long drive, was seated right away (7:00 on a Tuesday), fairly quick service, server was very nice and knowledgable.. Believe his name was Nate.. Anyway he could answer all of our questions right away and made sure we had everything we needed. My new York strip was delicious.. Salad wasn't anything to brag about but the asparagus and Mac and cheese were amazing! Our server even brought us out a desert on the house since we were celebrating our new marriage! We will definitely return and try the other Jeff Ruby restaurants :)

“This restaurant should be number one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This establishment is another reason why Cincinnati is underrated. All around, excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The service was very polished. We both loved the art deco atmosphere. My dining partner said that he felt like he was in a restaurant in New York.

I've made several visits. Almost every time, I have an excellent experience. However, there was one visit where my dinner was undercooked. They stood behind their service and then some. They went far beyond what it took to make it right.
