There are several good steak houses in downtown Cincinnati, however none compares to Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. The service is impeccable, the bourbon list unmatched in the city and the steak (why go for anything else) is phenomenal.

My family loves steak and quite honestly, we have never been disappointed with the quality of a Jeff Ruby Steak, no matter which location we try. Literally everything is always perfect: service, menu offerings, food, personnel, dining room. We have tried Ruth's Chris and frankly, the steak is much better at Jeff Ruby's. I heartily endorse this restaurant.

My company had a managers conference and we had our dinner planned at jack Ruby's the room we had upstairs was great and I really enjoyed the wine but was less impressed with the food. My steak came well done and I ordered medium rare. I sent it back and felt like I did something wrong. The next steak was... More

Went here for a lunch before Christmas. This place has impeccable food and service. I had the shrimp (prawns) cocktail as an appetizer. Enormous, delicious and the best cocktail sauce. Followed this with a filet mignon and grilled asparagus. Absolutely the best filet I have ever had, and I have had many! Do yourself a favor. Treat yourself to this... More

The staff is attentive without being overbearing. The food is very good, though pricey, in a city with many options. Atmosphere is awesome with an art deco decor.

We were meeting friends who had just moved to Cincinnati for dinner and we had three little kids. The staff was extremely attentive and make great recommendations for dinner and dessert. Had a bone-in Ribeye and my wife had a burger which she really liked. Sides were a little small, but really good. Would definitely recommend the mac and cheese... More

Ruby's restaurants are well-known for their service and outstanding food. We had been here before. We chose this location for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner, and it was everything we expected and more. The place was sold out on a Tuesday evening(!) We never thought that a fried egg on top of a scallops appetizer would work, but it was... More
