Everything was amazing, from the car drop off, to the table location, to our great waiter and his recommendations on choices we chose to make our meals the very best. Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse made our 50th anniversary very special.

Our server, John was fantastic. A real professional. The steaks were beyond expectations. Yes, it’s a pricey restaurant, but 100% worth it. It’s not a meal, it’s an experience.

Everything was pretty much top notch, our server (Patrick) was awesome, very helpful & knowledgeable, food was good, Barrel cut filet was tender and delicious, creamed corn too sweet, overall the experience was first class, always a good place to go before the Arnoff ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ve been going to Ruby’s for 15+ years and use to swear that it was the best steakhouse in the country. No more. The last couple times I’ve got the Cowboy it was average at best and certainly not worth the price. It was no better than Texas Road house. No joke. Very disappointed. On top of that my server forgot my crab cake. For got my beer and then brought me vodka instead. He was complete MIA for way too long. Sorry to say but won’t be going back.

Our meal was coursed too fast and we felt very rushed. Salad came before our before dinner cocktails were even finished. We had to ask to have the steaks held as we wanted to relax. Our server was very nice and provided a good experience otherwise. All of the food was great except the steak... it was a New York Strip cooked medium and was actually tough. I ate 3 bites.
The overall dinner still was very nice and would still recommend the restaurant.

What a beautiful restaurant! The lighting and colors and decor are amazing. Our service and food was spectacular. We weren’t thrilled being stuck in the back room for our Anniversary when we had made reservations way in advance.

Reservation at 5:30pm. Got sat in the back room with a party of 25 and couldn't hear to talk amongst our table. Sat for almost 30 minutes before a waiter came to our table. Never was told the specials, we just asked if we could order because we didn't want to be late for the show at the Aronoff. At 7:15pm, we asked our waiter if our food was ever going to come, we weren't going to have time to eat. Food came at 7:20pm and our sides were wrong. Got sides replaced with what we ordered. Show was at 8pm at the Aronoff. We took about 4-5 bites of our steaks and asked to have our food boxed up. Looked for the Maitre D to let him know about our experience but couldn't locate him and we looked 3 times. We ordered desserts and had them boxed to go because we didn't have time to enjoy any of our food. We got home from the show and was going to eat the rest of our food to discover my husbands steak was never put in our to go bag. He took 4 bites of the 24 ounce Cowboy steak that was not boxed up. Our bill was over $500 with tip. Not worth the time and money for such poor service at such a reputable restaurant. Very disappointed. We called the manager and left a message. They text me claiming they would call me today to make things right but have yet to receive a call.

First off this was an amazing experience as expected. We requested a booth and got an amazing seat with views of the whole restaurant. Our server, Kris, was phenomenal . Very personable and easy to work with and made this experience wonderful. I chose the cowboy steak and it was to die for. The cheesecake and Mac n cheese are both out of this world delicious.

One of our steaks(filet/collinsworth) were overcooked. My gf doesn’t like medium rare steak, so we ordered medium and got as close to well done as you can get. She of course did not want to send it back because our server was phenomenal and she wanted no issues but this was the only downside. Disappointed in this but overall, still edible and a good experience
