To call this this the best restaurant in the city does a great disservice to what are Louisville's best restaurants, namely 310 Magnolia which is always been #1 for over a decade. Even many of the restaurants along Bardstown Rd and Frankfort Ave put this place to shame especially if you factor in price and quality of the chef(Jack Fry's,... More

We were looking for an upscale steakhouse to have dinner on our last night in Loiisville. We had an excellent meal at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. The New York steak was outstanding and cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed the wedge salad and baked potato. This was in the number one or two favorite steak houses I have tried and we... More

Great service and food. Even if reservation are full, you can eat at the bar. Piano is a little loud at bar but food is worth it.

I immensely enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant. There was someone playing the piano the night we were there. The food was amazing. Our steak was cooked perfectly, the sides were delicious, and the cocktails were spot on. This restaurant is on the pricier side, but it was totally worth it.

Seriously the best everything I have ever eaten or experienced. Best steak, potatoes, green beans, cheesecake, mousse cake I have ever eaten...ever. I cannot compliment the food enough. It is worth every dime! And, this is not even raving on and on about the service and decor. My expectations were exceeded 10 times over. PS. Impressive wine selection also!

This restaurant cooked two of the best steaks my husband and I have ever had!! Our waiter, Joseph was amazing. He found out this was our fist visit here and he explained the menu and all of the choices and pairings we could have. Then I asked for things that were not no longer on the menu and he made...

Everything about Jeff Ruby's is worthy of even more stars than are available. The atmosphere is lively and entertaining from the decor to the piano player elevated amidst the bar. The service is impeccably attentive. We both started with bourbon on the rocks. The bourbon selection is very varied in selection and price. I had Tommy's salad which was wonderful.... More

I have been at Jeff Ruby's with a good colleague for dinner. We shared a seafood plater as appetizer. The oysters were delicious. Our steaks were just perfectly cooked and seasoned. No doubt, the best steakhouse in "The Ville".

I love this place. It has excellent steaks--my preference, although I haven't tried anything else here, and the art deco is so appealing. I prefer eating in the bar area, but I like it casual, and the piano is nearby. Service is great. This is my favorite restaurant for special occasions and special out-of-town guests.

From service to appetizers, drinks, seafood and steak you won't be disappointed with any choice. Late bar atmosphere for any event.
