  • "Food was outstanding and prepared perfect. Service was great."

  • "My husband and I had an amazing anniversary dinner. He had the Hatchet and I branched out a bit with the scallops. Everything was delicious. We had a slice of cheesecake for dessert and it was perfect."

  • "My husband and I took our daughter and her fiance to Jeff Ruby's 7th Street Steakhouse to celebrate her birthday and graduation from college. As we were also attending a concert at the US Bank Arena at 7:30 that evening we requested the earliest reservation available, which was at 5 pm. We were seated immediately upon arriving, at a table away from the bar area, as also requested to avoid excessive noise. The staff were, as always, very professional and accommodating. Service was great and the food was, once again, awesome. We raise our own beef and this is the only place that our family considers to be better than our own! Having travelled a good bit, this is still the best seafood we have had too. Love, love, love this place!"

  • "If you like great steaks, good wine, great service in a sexy setting then eat here! If not... save your money and find somewhere else to eat. But you will be missing an extraordinary meal. My go to place in Cincinnati as well as Louisville."

  • "We know the food is top notch, but what makes it a special night for us 2-3 times a year is the service. Shawn was our waiter and we really appreciate his service. Even though we aren't wealthy and are not regulars at Rubys, he made us feel like we were. Please pass along our sentiments regarding how we were treated and we look forward to our next visit."

  • "Fantastic steak. Mashed potatoes wonderful? Very fun atmosphere. Ribeye steak one of best ever eaten."

  • "Go directly to the #1 steakhouse in Cincinnati. Bypass the imposters/newcomers... you'll leave satisfied until you've eaten at Jeff Ruby's... then you'll question your earlier dining decision. Oh, and try the house make cheese stuffed doughnuts... OMG."

  • "The service was just fantastic. The food was the best I ever had. It was romantic and just great. I will be going here for years to come."

  • "The service was great, the food and the atmosphere were perfect. Great for us celebrating her Birthday dinner. Still a big fan of the precinct but downtown Rubys is always one of my favorites."

  • "My steak was a little over-cooked and a bit dry. I was looking forward to the dry aged bone in filet, which I've enjoyed many times and it honesty lacked the flavor and texture of prime aged beef. I requested medium rare and received something closer to medium well, which was probably the reason it was not the succulent cut expected. My wife and our guests from England raved over the entire experience including their steaks. I should have notified the waiter, but we were having a great time and did not want to interrupt the fun. Service was great, atmosphere awesome. My friend ordered a 1978 French wine that was excellent and we finished with the Faust Cabernet (perfect ending). We will return again."

  • "One of the finest steakhouses in Cincinnati. I had the Freddie Salad, the bone-in ribeye, and sides of creamed corn and hash browns."

  • "Superior steaks, oversized sides dishes and extremely attentive staff. Top notch."

  • "The restaurant was a great experience. My wife and I were in town visiting family and wanted a date night. The service was exceptional. Keegan was very professional and very knowledgable of the menu and answered all of our questions. The steak I had was high quality and cooked to my request. The side dishes were incredible, especially the mushroom truffle cream corn. Coming from the west coast we are spoiled with fresh seafood. To our delight, the sea bass was very fresh and well prepared. I would also recommend the crab cake appetizer. Thank you to the manager who came by a couple of times to ensure our dining experience was pleasurable."

  • "Our food was amazing. Steaks were perfect but the potatoes Anna left a little to be desired. We even got free dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary! Service was also professional and on too of everything."

  • "Jason our waiter made us feel like part "The Jeff Ruby Family"...it was great getting such wonderful service from everyone. One of the waiters escorted me to the ladies room...I have never been escorted to a ladies room so eloquently. We went with our eyes open on the cost and were not disappointed. We consider a dining experience and we were not disappointed."

  • "We were led to the most PERFECT booth, overlooking the rest of the dining room - great for people watching! Our waiter, Eric, was AMAZING! Not only was he knowledgeable and ready to offer his opinions, he was cool and a great conversationalist! Our dinner was TOP NOTCH! We started with the crab cake appetizer - outstanding! We split our second course, the 'Freddie' salad and so glad we didn't order two...only because it was HUGE! This was the BEST salad I've ever had...bursting with bacon in every bite! He ordered the 20oz 65 day dry-aged on the bone steak and I ordered the 16oz filet mignon. Both were cooked to medium rare - BOTH WERE PERFECTION! We shared the baked Mac n Cheese and about died from satisfaction at the first bite. Dine here"

  • "What a great evening. We had Eric Robertson as our server. He was on top of things and knew what he was talking about. There was four of us, I had the Salmon and the other three had steak. ALL VERY Delicious!!!! and prepared perfect. Eric recommended some sides, as we were not sure what to order. Can not go wrong with the potatoes. Can't wait to go back next time we are in town."

  • "Steaks were cooked perfectly and were very tasty. It's not the cheapest meal in town (by a long shot), but no complaints about the food or service. Perfect for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food was perfect. Out of our party of 3 two of us ordered the special and were very pleased. The third in our party ordered the filet and he love it. Our waiter either had too many other tables because we rarely saw him or he would awkwardly stand behind me so he was able to catch a glimpse of the TV which was airing the World Cup at the time."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "As always, Ruby's doesn't disappoint. Our group of 5 went early on a Saturday so it was still pretty quiet but the food (and wine) was amazing. The bone-in fillets were cooked perfectly and the salads and potatoes Anna were delicious. They seem so simple but are impossible to replicate. We always look forward to a Ruby's meal and everyone left happy and stuffed."

  • "Fantastic experience, but it always is. Complimentary picture taken by the Manager, hand delivered to us in a Jeff Ruby frame before we left. Complimentary dessert to celebrate our special day. Gorgeous decor, right out of classic hollywood. Unbelievable food. Absolutely worth it!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The steaks here are excellent (our 3rd time here) but the "Aged" steaks were a little over aged - if you like highly funky it is ok but be sure to know that is what you like. Scallops were ok - not enhanced by the rest of the dish at all. Salads outstanding, crab appetizer excellent. Wine list way way over priced for today's market - we refused to order from it although we can afford anything. New donut desert fabulous!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had a lovely dinner at Jeff Ruby's for our 30th anniversary. The food was excellent as was the service. Our waiter was attentive and very personable. The steaks were mouth watering and absolutely delicious! Five stars!"

  • "Our first dining experience at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse was recently for our 11th Wedding Anniversary. We made online reservations ahead of time. Upon arriving there was no wait and they sat us immediately. The service from our entrance to exit was divine and very friendly. We both absolutely loved the food, overall atmosphere and the live music. A truly wonderful establishment to celebrate your next "Special Occasion"."

  • "Only one thing that needs improvement and that would be a larger bar area. Bar area is to small and cramped."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Had a lot of steaks, mesa grill, roast detriot, brooks, plus up scale chains, no comparison. These steaks were just flat out the best. We had the cowboy rib eye, porterhouse. Personally prefer to dine without a band playing. Fairly loud close to the bar area."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This was a perfect dining experience for our 'Special Occasion'. All aspects of the dining experience was a pleasure... our waiter was very pleasant and took the time to explain items, and answer our questions. We enjoyed the experience... and the food is outstanding, done perfectly so as to retain all the flavors. Excellent."

  • "When you want a good steak and terrific service, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse is the place to be. 'Jeff's Gem' is a steak to be reckoned with! Cooked to perfection with the most delicious chili rub, this steak is sure to please and be remembered. Don't discount the sides....every one- large enough to share- are palate pleasers. The blue point oysters we had as appetizers were fresh and huge. I cannot say anything negative about this establishment in Cincinnati. The dining room service was impeccable. When I have a special occasion to celebrate, this is where I think of to go first!"

  • "How does any steakhouse in Cincinnati compete with Jeff Ruby? Jeff Ruby's downtown and the Precinct are our favorites. Carlo and Johnny not so much."

  • "This was my husband's first time there. He hasn't been to this nice of a place before and he was a little overwhelmed at the "fine dining" atmosphere and food choices, but our waiter, Jason, put him at ease and he totally enjoyed it. The steaks were amazing, as I knew they would be."

  • "We've been to the downtown location several times. Food is always excellent, and service usually is too, but this time the server wasn't overly friendly or even seemed like he wanted to be at work that day. Would still return, but hope to have a more upbeat server next time."
