We enjoyed a delicious dinner after spending the day watching Horse Races at Keeneland. It was a perfect dining experience before returning home to Dayton.

Drinks were spectacular, steak and lobster the best and wow, the desserts!!

Jeff Ruby's and the brand meet every expectation and then some that you have as a guest. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious anniversary dinner. The steaks, the wine, the sides, everything was perfection.

The meal was fantastic. The service was fantastic.
Due to a traffic on the 71 we were over an 1/2 hour late. I called to let them know and they held our table.
Thanks for a terrific evening.

Nice time overall. Service was great (thanks Alex). My steak was a bit overdone and my drinks were not especially good and it seemed a little louder than usual. Still a great night though.

It was a special night out for our family to celebrate older son turning 19. Our waiter was rude most of the time, ignored my husband five times when trying to get assistance...literally walked by right next to us. Very disappointing. The food was pretty good. A couple of items not great. The setting is lovely, but the staff disappointing and they can make or break your dining experience.

Steaks that melt in your mouth as always. Enjoyed the Wagyu meatball and Freddie salad as our regulars, and added the Roasted cauliflower as a new favorite. Looking forward to having the leftovers for dinner again tonight.

I have always ordered off the kids menu due to a surgery I have had I can’t eat large portions and this time the server kinda gave me a hard time I even said I will pay adult price. The Archie’s bow tie pasta and chicken is supposed to be like a chicken Alfredo and normal it takes great but last night not so much.

Unbelievable experience! Living in Cincinnati for over 25 years, this was our first time visiting Jeff Ruby's downtown location. The dining room was incredible. Walking into the restaurant, we felt like we were walking back in time. We felt like we might see Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis! The service was exceptional. First, I forgot my reading glasses and the attendant brought me a pair. Where else do you get that kind of service? Cody was a top-notch waiter and the attendant was so nice. Both were very friendly and never talked down to us or made us feel uncomfortable. As for the food and drink....the Manhattan cocktail that we had was fantastic. We skipped appetizers and salad because we were not exceptionally hungry. We both ordered steak....of course. I had the NY Strip and my wife had the petite filet. Both were perfectly cooked to medium-rare and seasoned very well....maybe a little salty, but fantastic nonetheless. We both had the blue cheese butter which complemented the meat perfectly. The Cabernet Sauvignon suggestion by the waiter was one of the best that I have had. It was rich and jammy and went perfectly with the steak. For sides, we had the Hasselback Potato and the creamed spinach. They were amazing! Rich with flavor and indulgent. The spinach was the best that I have ever had, hands down. For dessert, we took Cody's advice and had the Carrot Cake. It was enormous...enough for 3-4 people. It was decadent! We had a lot of leftovers which were packaged perfectly and delivered discretely. Needless to say, Jeff Ruby's was an amazing experience. Perhaps my only quibble was the table of annoying loud women next to us. I mean, how many times can you yell "Shut up!" to your friends? But that is not the restaurant's fault. With an expensive dining experience like this, it's the little things that matter. Jeff Ruby's delivered on all levels! We will definitely return!

Our dining experience was over the top fabulous. The service was extremely accommodating to our wants and needs. It was only topped by the scrumptious food, from the mouth watering flavors to the plated presentations. Superb!

The most challenging aspect of going to Jeff Ruby's is deciding what to get because it's all outstanding. If it's your first trip ask for the Bread Basket, Wedge Salad, Cowboy Ribeye, and Mac n Cheese. Those are the staples that you'll hear everyone rave about over and over again.

Personally I would recommend the Meatball app (it'll likely be the best meatball you've ever had) and goes great with the bread basket. The Godfather sushi roll is a can't miss for sushi lovers. Yes, Ruby's has the best sushi in Cincinnati if you didn't already know. For steaks, I'd still recommend the Cowboy, but by the time it arrives you maybe pretty full so splitting is fine. I always go with the Mac n Cheese. It's great to take home any leftovers.

For any ranch dressing lovers, it's not something touted anywhere, but Ruby's makes the best ranch dressing you'll ever have. My wife always asks for a few sides to take home after the meal.

The staff is very friendly and they will take care of you, so tip them well and enjoy your evening.

If you are looking for high end service look elsewhere. The meal started off with ordering a particular vintage of wine. The waiter brought a different year of that wine to the table and never made a mention of it. As he was about to open it, I said the year is off on the bottle, to which he replied we were out of that vintage so I brought this one instead. Being out of a particular wine is okay, but the waiter needs to be forthright and honest about it - not deceptive and I hope the guest doesn't notice. It took over an hour for our appetizer to come out of the kitchen. The waiter said the appetizer would be comped only for us to discover it hidden on the bill when we got home.

I would not go back. I would avoid this restaurant as the service is worse than restaurants that cost a 1/10 of its costs.

Food was spot on. Drinks were outstanding. 90 miles to Cuba. Great tasty drink. Did a mother/som Bengals game. Unfortunately they lost is a great overtime game. Had dinner right next to one of the Bengals defenders who was gracious enough to take a photo with my son. Asked for a “little beer” after dinner drink. Our waiter said the bartender did not know how to make it, yet surprised us by going to another bartender who prepared it! Way to make your customers happy! Must go if you are looking for a great meal with great customer service. $$$$ worth it!
