Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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"."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "We went here for our first anniversary and wow! Great food, generous portions, and amazing service. You are treated like royalty. The interior has a fancy feel to it but not overwhelming. The history of the restaurant is illustrated by the pictures on the wall. But you go there for the food. I have never had such a great tasting steak. The center cut filet didn't have a speck of fat and the flavors in your mouth are indescribable. If you're looking to splurge for a special occasion, look no further than here."

  • "I travel for a living - 40 weeks out of the year. Jeff Ruby's is world class. The steaks are amazing. You can just taste the fresh in the raw bar items. Skip the chains... this place is the real deal.... save room for dessert. The fresh ricotta donuts in raspberry sauce were amazing!... hot, light, powered sugar melting... nothing to not love there."

  • "I travel nationally for work and have been fortunate enough to eat at many of the top steakhouses and this ranks near the top. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The food is typical for Ruby-excellent. However, bring a large amount of money because the portions are large and so so is the price. The smallest steak is the 12oz filet. The quality of the food is excellent but smaller portions would be sufficient and less painful on the pocketbook. The salads and sides were delicious. The chocolate melting cake was excellent. "

  • "Everything was great! The only thing I would change is the table decoration."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We had a very disappointing meal. Our server was attentive and the salad and sides were good. Our steak was overcooked. We were going to see a play so we did not send the steak back. For the money, I expect medium rare to be pink and juicy. I'm not sure this will be the steakhouse we frequent next time. Our server said there had been other complaints regarding the steaks being overcooked."
