Excellent steak and salads. We had the Mac and cheese which was sinful. Celebrated a birthday, no room for dessert. Excellent service.

The potatoes Anna left more to be desired—flavor wise. More butter—cream sauce. Something. But other than that everything was spectacular. Thank you!

This was our second visit two Jeff Ruby's in a month. As always the food and service are impeccable. This is the first time one of our guests had Sushi as their main course and the quality and flavor matched the reputation of their Steaks.

Everyone also enjoyed the cocktails, shared sides and dessert.

We will be back many more times.

So disappointing...not a typical Ruby’s experience. Food was like warm. Still good flavor but no idea why not hot. For the money you spend here, should be perfection!!!

I had never been here before and was perhaps too excited to finally go. I say that because nothing about this experience met expectations. I will say I came here on the night of Valentine's day with reservations- so maybe we attended on a bad night. The host staff seemed incredibly stressed and were very short with us while checking in for the first and only time. We were sat in the Sinatra room, which reminded me of a mall kiosk with all the Rat Pack memorabilia on the walls. The food was extremely lackluster for the price you're paying. While you can tell it is prepared well, the food is bland and doesn't have any standout flavors. The only redeeming qualities were the serving staff and the scallops. I waited my whole life to experience a Jeff Ruby's restaurant and I can live the rest of my life knowing it's not worth it to go back.

It never disappoints, even on busy Valentine's day! I love this place!

I highly recommend the filet with red wine truffle sauce. All the sides and salads are amazing too! And the "sidecar named desire" was fabulous!

We celebrated Valentines Day at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. Overall, the experience was mediocre. The food tasted great, but the service and restaurant was not up to the normal Jeff Ruby standard. It was exceptionally busy due to Valentines Day, but the staff was having troubles keeping up with customer service.

We will certainly give Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse another try, but we will chose to visit on a less popular night.

Great food. We went to Les Miserables afterward, and we were cutting it close because of the rain and the new security measures at the Aronoff. We arrived on time... not sure what the solution is. Still a great place to dine!

Always enjoy Jeff Ruby's. I have said more than once to anyone who will listen that they serve the best steak in America. One member of our party was not satisfied with the original preparation of the meal and to their credit they immediately remedied it and compensated our bill accordingly. Class service, class handling.
