    Hands down the best dining experience I have ever had. The service was spectacular and the food was amazing. They printed special menus for our anniversary, and gave us a free sampler plate of desserts. There isn’t a thing they could do to improve upon our experience.

    We really enjoyed our sushi, dessert, and sides, but the steak was a bit of a letdown. We ordered the same steak we’ve ordered in the past, but this one was very tough and was not all that hot. It seemed to have been sitting for a bit before it was delivered to us. This was quite disappointing because of the price point! I don’t think I’ll order another steak from Jeff Ruby’s. Our service was great as always!

    First time dining at the new downtown Cincinnati location. We had a booth in the bar area and it felt like the main dining room, open & spacious. The true main dining room was behind us and that room was an extremely nice venue as well. Young blond hostess that was working the door needed a bit more smile, but other than that the service was exceptional and our server Erin was outstanding. As always the food was top notch and the ribeye was perfectly cooked and delicious, as were all the steaks at the table. Sides were tasty and the butter pie is always a must-have every time I go. Best steakhouse in the country IMHO.

    Hello, My wife and I, just married 5/13. Dined after we got married and it was the absolute best dinner ever! The food was fantastic but even more so the staff. They made us feel amazing and like we were royalty! Peter our waiter was just amazing and made the night so much fun. An old friend Hogie came over and entertained us and made us feel on top of the world. The manager Laura was fantastic and so sweet bringing us a rose dessert to die for to celebrate our day. Cannot say enough good things about all three and making our special night one to remember. Will be coming back for anniversary’s to come! Thank you all so much again!

    Something about Tuesday nights…. Every time I go for a work dinner on Tuesdays the waiter or staff member pouring wine ends up spilling. Last night it happened again. Accidents happen and Ruby’s has always (until yesterday) gone above and beyond to show their service is the best in town. Last night the service was good but abnormal for a Ruby’s restaurant. Typically when an accident happens they are very good about making a gesture to “make up” for the mistake. Food was great as always.

    Always a pleasure to eat there and this time I tried the salmon after years getting the steaks and it was amazing. The crab cake was another special surprise how unique and delicious it was. Peter and Bryan handed the table very professionally . I go every 4 weeks and highly recommend the place.

    I made reservations for this evening a month ago. I specifically wanted the bar section for the entertainment. I arrived on time and still had to wait 45 minutes for a table to open up. I also noticed the food portion of my order was significantly smaller than the last time I dined here. I’m vegetarian so I ordered appetizers and sides and was disappointed to see less food than before. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I frequently dine here and was just disappointed with this particular experience overall. Still love Jeff Ruby’s and will be back because I love the food and staff.
