“Excellent steak, a bit pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This was my second time at Ruby's. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be back next time I'm in Cinci for business.

Excellent service, always available but discrete. Our waiter definitely knew a thing or two about wine.

My fillet was cooked just right, but $100/person seemed a bit high. Hence only 4/5 rating.

“Great environment, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The place looks and feels great: lovely and lively atmosphere, great live music, nice people... yet the steak was OK, i.e. not bad, not memorable, just average.
Paid 100 dollars for a fillet, fries, two cups of wine and some fruit.

“Great food but uncomfortable atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The food was excellent and well presented. The service was impeccable. It was just too tight seating for us. We felt we had no privacy and were constantly afraid of bumping someone or something.

“WOW! As good as it gets!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Simply AWESOME. I eat at a LOT of steak houses, so I was skeptical when the concierge said this place was "one of the best in Ohio" - yeah, right I thought... He was right! In fact, maybe one of the best in Mid West. No joke. I had the NY strip, Medium w Pepper corn sauce. Hash browns were incredible... Pricey and worth it all the way... HIGHLY RECOMMEND
