The steaks are great! And huge! This is an expensive restaurant, but worth every penny. Everything we had was great- the bread, Caesar, potatoes, steak, and dessert. Service was excellent- attentive, but not overbearing.

My daughter in law had her wedding rehearsal brunch at Jeff Ruby and it was one of the best steak houses I've eaten at.

Visited here on Saturday night while visiting Cincy. Had read great reviews via this site, and they were all spot on. This is a fantastic restaurant....outstanding food, exceptional service, all around classy place! Definitely pricy but oh so worth it! Will return next time I'm back in the area.

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse was outstanding both in atmosphere and food. We did not have a reservation and ate at the bar. The bartender was very engaging and we enjoyed ourselves. We shared the filet mignon, potatoes anna and creamed spinach.

Tried to eat at the Ruby Steak House Carlo and Johnny but they had a water problem and last minute switched us to their downtown location. Not ideal but the water problem was out of their control. We were celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary and were dressed in coat and tie and wife had a very nice dress. Apparently there... More

My brother and I were there everyday for dinner and lunch. AWESOME! I took my wife to Jeff's in Louisville before the all star game. Both restaurants were the best. One of the best if not the best restaurants in the United States! ! Everything was superb! !!

every time we come to town we stay downtown and walk to Jeff Rubys. We split a Freddy salad, small fillet. Mac a cheese the best! Always an incredible meal by an incredible staff
