I love steak a lot and Mr.Ruby showed me why I love it so much, I had the rib eye, tasty! But one thing really urks me, I can't remember my waitress's name she was superb. Definitely the place to go, zipadee doo da zipadee day!

I save up to do a Ruby's restaurant. And for my last birthday - I needed to hit the downtown version. Beautiful restaurant with Art Deco features - a great setting for a phenomenal steak, the best I have ever had. While pricey, it is WORTH the money.

Great food and atmosphere. Salad and potatoes are extra. For 40-60 for steak, I would like to get a potato or salad with it for free!

We love the Precinct, another of Ruby's steakhouses. This appears to be an uppidy pick-up place where the bar is full of people just checking out who comes and goes. I prefer a great meal for the prices charged here. This is not a good value for the money. There are many restaurants with the same fare at reasonable prices.... More

Reminded me of the old speak easy, with great wait staff, a high energy vibe, and an outdoor cigar / cigarette smoking area. Good drinks, but didn't have any food.

Steaks are on the menu. Fantastic appetizers, amazing steaks and Mac n cheese is over the top. Don't miss the donuts for desert. If you do, shame on you. Excellent service and great atmosphere.

We have heard about the Cincinnati location of Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse - we have previously dined at his Carlos and Johnny's restaurant in Montgomery,OH and enjoyed the food. Getting tickets to the Aronoff Center across the street we decided to try this location. Excellent steaks and raw bar selections. Felt there were fewer seafood offerings at this location but overall... More
