This was our first time to a Jeff Ruby establishment. It was amazing. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, the sides were delicious, and the service was over the top. We thank you so much for an amazing night out.

Upscale but not intimidating. The greeting was friendly and our wait staff was professional and also made us feel comfortable

It has been a while since my husband and I have been in a Jeff Ruby restaurant, but we were a bit disappointed. I almost always get the Collinsworth so it is not a new item for me, but the sauces seemed different, thicker and saltier, almost inedible. The steak itself was cooked perfectly and tasted good. The service was just okay. We (and others) had to wait quite a while past our reservation time, even though several people had left, and the hostess made multiple comments to management about needing tables cleaned. Our servers were even just okay. Overall, I was not impressed for first date night since COVID.

We celebrated my daughter’s 23rd birthday and her first time at Ruby’s. She thoroughly enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. The back room is not nearly as engaging as the main room/bar area, being the only (slight) negative. Great overall!!

Initial experience was good- nice greeter and server. But after our meals came, we had to track down someone to assist us several times. Our waiter only came back once without prompting. We ordered more wine with our dinner, and he brought it after we were all done.....we ordered coffee after dinner, and it took so long that we had to find the water boy, and he finally brought it for us. The waiter never acknowledged this at all. Then we had to ask someone else to put in an order for dessert for us— again, because our waiter was not around. Just a very disappointing $250 meal.

We went for my husbands birthday! Pedro was our server and he was absolutely phenomenal! He has other tables but he took his time with us to answer questions, to explain menu options and to celebrate my husband! Even the hostess who sat us said “happy birthday!” as she walked away! The food was absolutely incredible! If I could give this night 6 stars I would!

Everything was great except we got put at a tiny little round high top in the corner that was super wobbly. But the food and service was great

Took our daughter for her 16th birthday so she can see why we rave about Jeff Ruby restaurants. You can’t get a better steak and she agreed! Our servers were amazing and it was just a great overall experience. Oh and for dessert....try the butter pie....life changing!

We’ve been to Jeff Ruby’s many times over the years but, clearly something was “off” on this visit. We repeatedly had to ask for a drink we had ordered, some of our order was never brought and we were there for a LONG time.

Terrific food from the super fresh Blue Point Oysters to the Chuukara Roll and Wedge Salad everything was amazing. The Cowboy (70 day aged) was delicious and with their mashed potatoes was a perfect combination.

Everything was great except they seated us at perhaps the worst possible table even though we were there at 4:45 PM. I went to the bathroom maybe an hour or more after our reservation and most of the restaurant was still empty. Why give us such a poor table right inside the door when 90% of restaurant was still empty an hour later? Other than that, food, service, cocktails were all excellent.

Excellent service. The food is always consistently excellent. I didn’t like our table location very much. It was maybe 3 steps from the door. However, that’s a minor inconvenience. I also would have liked to been able to get a drink at the bar while they were setting up our table, but it’s reservation only right now. Again, just a minor inconvenience.

Wife and I celebrating 26th wedding anniversary. Excellent meals--she had the filet, I had the sea bass. Sides: green beans, mushrooms both very good. Outstanding service by Jordan and Brett. Michael, the General Manager, stopped by to introduce himself and make sure all was good. A very enjoyable evening and a great place to celebrate our special day.

We were at Jeff Ruby's to celebrate my daughter's 18 th birthday and they made it a night to remember. The service was fantastic and there was just enough attention and care provided that we felt like we were having a special family dinner prepared just for us. I can't say enough about how delicious the food was and how everyone is still talking about how great everything tasted.

Great Blue Point Oysters, Wedge Salad, and the 100 Day Aged Cowboy is terrific. A lovely nutty flavor from the extended aging. Don't miss the Banana Foster Ice Cream Tort.
