A word from Jeff Ruby's - Louisville
The first & only steakhouse of its kind in the Louisville area, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves only dry-aged USDA prime beef. While steak is the foundation of the menu, Jeff Ruby's promises to please seafood lovers as well with its raw/sushi bar & seafood entrees.
Jeff Ruby regulars will be pleased to know that their favorite signature items from the Cincinnati restaurants will be well represented in Louisville. The bone-in filet, the 7 cheese baked macaroni, creamed spinach, truffle flake creamed corn, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake will all be staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930's & 40's, Jeff Ruby's promises to be as pleasing visually as it is to the palate. French art-deco design, plush mohair upholstery, hand selected antique furniture and cinematic crystal chandeliers anchored by a 1950s-era antique featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32 foot wall of wine.

Diner Reviews
  • "From the service to the food, our dining experience at Jeff Ruby's was great! It could not have been any better!!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Expected top service and food and we were not disappointed. Dry-aged steaks have a stronger, more intense flavor and may not be for everyone."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We had a fantastic dinner at Jeff Ruby's last weekend. The aged, bone-in steaks were done to perfection and melted in one's mouth. Also of note were the green beans and the chopped salad. This is an excellent steak house restaurant with a youthful vibe and an exceptional wine list."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This restaurant has great ratings, so we had high expectations. We were not disappointed! Everything, from beginning to end was superb -- incredie food, beautiful presentation, and never-even-have-to-refill-your-wine-glass service. This place is a must for anyone visiting downtown Louisville."

  • "Great experience. Waiter was very good, my only knock with the service was that no one was in a hurry there but maybe that's a good thing. Have already recommended it to others just as it was recommended to me. Best Filet that I have ever had. Thanks!"

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The service was wonderful. The food was great. My only suggestion would be to lighten up on the bacon in the salad; also on the scallops. Scallops are huge but were way to salty. Steak - filet Mignon was delicious!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We have dined at jeff ruby's several times and continue to come back because of its excellent food, service and ambiance. We find it much more vibrant than Ruth Chris and is steps away from downtown life. Their special touches of photo momentos and mailed thank you notes are icing on the cake."

  • "We attended for our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. The steaks were perfect and the mac & cheese to die for. The bone-in ribeye is the only steak you should get. Perfect marbling and flavor. Our server Wes was professional and helped with anything and everything we needed. When we return again, we will ask for him! Thanks Jeff Ruby's!"

  • "Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse is far and away my favorite place to eat. Service is flawless, the atmosphere is fun and the food is second to none. The Jeff Ruby sushi roll is the best thing I have ever eaten. We will definitely return as often as we can, especially for special occasions."

  • "We had a guys weekend in Kentucky to do the Bourbon trail. We started in Louisville and decided Jeff Ruby's was the perfect meal to start our adventure. The waiter gave us a list of hot spots to hit around Louisville. The sushi roll was fantastic. They have a great bourbon selection as well as wine. Our filets melted in our mouths. Perfect place to unwind while in downtown Louisville."

  • "My absolute favorite special night restaurant in Louisville! Never disappoints! Impeccable service, heavenly food and romantic ambience! Worth every last cent! What a treat!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The many menus are stocked with all the classics. From sushi to oysters, the steaks don't shine alone. My wife and I had a tuna fillet and the bone-in fillet mignon with a side of scallops. Everything was great, but next time I might just get the scallops, best I've ever had and not by that close. Innovation was present without messing with what is already great. The service was friendly, helpful, and didn't rush us out the door. A review of Jeff Ruby's would be incomplete without mentioning the extensive wine list. They have our favorite wine, Clio. I've yet to find another place that stocks the under the radar Spanish gem. The meal is pricey for Louisville, KY, but it is an event that we felt was well worth the extra expense."

  • "I took my wife here for our 21st Anniversary and the servers made her feel pampered, and that is what i care about. My wife is my Queen and I appreciate service that further enhances that experience for her. Excellent food and service."

  • "Service was very professional yet very accommodating. We received just enough attention but were not shadowed. The steak and salads were great the appetizers and side just ok. overall a very special treat. Because of the cost it will continue to be a "special" treat"

    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Always love Jeff Ruby's, but would have enjoyed it more if I had received the entree that I ordered. I ordered the "special fish of the day" but the sea bass on the regular menu was what was brought to me. Didn't want to make a fuss so I just went ahead and ate what they served, but I was still very disappointed that I didn't get to eat what I ordered."

  • "Fantastic we had a wonderful meal for a special occasion"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Its a very nice place to dine! I would recommend it to anyone one on a special occasion! If you can afford it then more often! The steaks we chose were great and loved the green beans! it was busy on the Saturday we went, so service could have been a little better especially since we had two waiters, one in training. I would go again!"

  • "This visit was our first to this location in eight years, though we have visited their location at Belterra several times during that time. Those visits were outstanding as well as this one to their Louisville location. We live in Louisville so it was actually more convenient to us. Everything about this visit was outstanding; food, service, friendliness, overall NO flaws PERIOD."

  • "We were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and could not have been more pleased with our dining experience. The food was excellent. Servings are large but it was no problem to share the appetizer, salad and entree. It was served to us already split and on separate plates. Our waiter asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion and when we told Him it was our wedding anniversary he took our picture and gave us a free desert."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Jeff Ruby's is probably the most attractive restaurant in Louisville. It is lively, but not too noisy. We split the Cowboy on Bone steak with sides of fries and grilled asparagus. All were delicious! I had the caesar salad and my wife had the bibb salad. They were good, but could be better. I like a caesar salad with a strong flavor and this one was a bit too mild in taste. Will we go back? Yes, we had a great time!"
