They have the best steaks and the service by Chris was excellent. Eric one of the managers stopped at our table to make sure that everything was being taken care of by the staff.

I am not rich so cannot eat here frequently. However, when I did eat here I was in love. The steak and their carrot cake is to die for! If you can afford it, and do not mind spending over $50.00 for some steak then eat here!!

Jeff Ruby knows what he's doing. Service and quality of food are always of the highest caliber. The Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse is a true Cincinnati dining experience. The interior of the restaurant is spectacular with amazing chandeliers and a classy atmosphere. The waiters are extremely professional working in tandem with the bus boys to deliver top notch service without being... More

Top of the line steaks - I challenge you to find better anywhere - applies to all the Ruby restaurants. You'll pay for it but....... Atmosphere is quite formal, service varies from excellent to a bit snobby but overall great.

Wow, they sure do it right. It starts the minute you enter the front door, you are treated as if you are special, the entire staff is great. I can not say enough great things about the food and drinks, they are the best. The prices are high, but worth every penny and more.

You know... No complaints, really, but meh... I think that Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse probably has all the makings for one of those timeless, old-school places where you’d almost expect to see Frank Sinatra or the Rat Pack sitting in a booth. But it just doesn’t quite achieve that. Certainly a cut above average steakhouses, but the value really isn’t there.... More

First time to this restaurant, the service was prompt and the food was simply amazing, I mean stunning. The $400 bill worth every penny. 🍻

We took customers here and had one of the best dinners ever. The appetizers of Oyster Rockefeller's, seared tuna were perfect. Our steaks were cooked to perfect temperature from the strip to the filets. The Truffle cream corn, mushrooms and spinach were awesome. The waiter was attentive and knowledgable. Then to go to the patio for a cigar topped off... More

The steaks are good, not sure if they are naturally raised, they didn't taste like it. The atmosphere takes you back in time. There is a lot of energy. The picture wall of famous people is fun. It's no Peter Luger but for Cincinnati it's great.

...but it will be worth every penny. Steaks beyond belief, incredible sides, impeccable service. We have been coming here once a year and there is simply no finer steak house in Cincy. We would come more often if our bank had looser rules.
