Not quite up to par. I understand it was very busy and crowded but we were not attended to like we are used to at a Jeff Ruby restraunt. My steak ordered medium was over cooked, the second one out was not a lot better and over seasoned. We both ordered medium, my wife's steak was a little pink, neither of mine were.
Everything else was pretty much perfection.

Great food, great staff, small area at entrance with live music & long bar & stools (few outside tables/seats along westside sidewalk). So many options for seating, call ahead for reservation, seat location and/or preferred server.
1. Great location to Aronoff just across the street
2. Valet parking:
a. drive up on south side, in front of restaurant at curb, get claim ticket
b. upon leaving, give valet your claim ticket (you were given at drop off of car), tip(s) for valet at your pleasure...

Jeff Ruby's is an old school classic steakhouse, the staff are attentive to every detail and make you feel comfortable. The food is outstanding and the server was spot on with his recommendations. The aged Manhatten is one of the best I have ever had.

We had dinner before the show and the staff timed it perfectly, we never felt rushed, had a multi course meal and sampled a few deserts and made it to the show on time.

Excellent! Our server Griffin was wonderful, very personable. The king crab was super fresh along with the oysters. The only downside was that they must not have heard us when we asked for my husband's leftovers to go, but that's okay. It was still an amazing experience for my husband's birthday.

We treated friends who had never been and had talked up our previous experience and the personal touches the waiter/server provided.

We arrived a bit early for our 715 reservation at 702. We were told our seating would be right about 715. We waited. As people there for the experience, drinking at the bar prior to dinner is a little over the budget. Bravo to the bar staff who multiple times asked if we needed anything but we just waited. Group after group was taken to their seats. The hostess told us that our table was being bussed, then she said it would be just 5mins longer, the she apologized and said she had the manager on it. I’m not sure of the exact time we waited but best guess was 30+ minutes.

We dined with Ruby’s on a Friday evening at 6:00pm. There were 8 of us celebrating 3 birthdays. We also received surprising news that there would be a new addition to our family! We had a lot to celebrate! The staff could not have been more accommodating from start to finish!
When we arrived we were greeted so pleasantly by the front desk who informed us our table would be ready as promised. We gathered for a cocktail and listened to the piano player for about 15 minutes until we were escorted to our table. We were greeted by our server Umit, who made us feel like we were the most important guests there that evening. Between Umit & Armando there wasn’t a second that one of our needs weren’t met! We even received visits to the table from managers Steve & Carmen to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.
Outside of the service, the food was AMAZING!! We had sushi, crab cakes, pork belly for appetizers and they all hit the spot! All of our steaks were cooked to order and melted in our mouths! The dessert ..... unbelievable!
Everything and I mean everything, down to my mother being escorted to the bathroom, was top notch service! It was hands down the best dining experience my family & I have ever experienced!

We went to Jeff Ruby’s to celebrate my admittance to medical school! The staff were so kind and congratulatory which was very appreciated. The food was excellent, rich in flavor, and in generous portions. The service was great, they’re very attentive but never invasive. It is definitely an energetic atmosphere, they put us at a good table that was intimate enough to carry on conversation. The waiter, Gary (Jerry?), made good recommendations since we were unfamiliar with the menu. We tho iffy the scallops appetizer was delicious. I had the Surf and Turf with Collinsworth which was great, my husband had the Cowboy and was quite happy with it. We also loved the Citrus Torte and Butter Cake for dessert.
