A wonderful meal as always. Jesse was a great server, and took great care of us. Well covered the menu, and offered his own insight as we moved through courses.

Service was excellent. Although service did seem to deminish after dinner was served. Perhaps there's a strategy behind that, but it didn't seem as attentive as it was prior to dinner being served. Jeff Ruby's did make our celebration special.

The best restaurant in Cincinatti! We had such outstanding service. Lacey sat us at the best table in the restaurant. The decor is absolutely gorgeous and I felt like I was back in the 30s. Andrew was our server and was simply amazing. We share all of our dishes and he had them split everything in the back. We started with a sushi roll and honestly, it was one of the best rolls I have ever had. I would come back just to do sushi it was so good. The wedge salad, crab bisque and my strip was perfection. Andrew also recommended a great Malbec to complement our meal. Sam who also was our back server was awesome too. Josh kept checking on us to entire our entire experience was perfect. We could not have ended our first time in Cincinnati on a better note. If you have only 1 meal here - this is the place!

Overall we enjoyed our night.
However, there were some people dressed in T-Shirt, short...
For this type of restaurant, there should be some dress code ( Must be reinforced). We were disappointed to see lots of people dressed down.

This was my first visit to Jeff Ruby's and I found the experience to be excellent. The staff was informative, professional and the service was outstanding. The food itself is on a level of its own, every entree and side order was delicious and the steak was the best I have ever eaten. I lived in Asia for 8 years and ate Kobe beef and I lived in Texas for 40 years and ate at some the best steak houses there and the steak at Jeff Ruby's was better than any I had in Japan or Texas. I would highly recommend Jeff Ruby's for any occasion and I will be again soon.

Andrew was great but the 16oz Ribeye wasn't the cut I've had in the past. Petite filet was fine, but wife said not much better than a " Longhorn" filet..it was her first time there and she was disappointed it wasn't what she expected it to be.

As always, the steaks at Jeff Ruby's are second to none. But our server Nikki went above and beyond to make sure we had the most pleasant experience possible.

Our visit to Jeff Ruby's was very enjoyable as usual. All the food was outstanding except one of the 3 filet mignons was over-cooked but they took care of it immediately. The staff and service are just outstanding. The carrot cake is absolutely incredible. Same for the chocolate cake. An excellent place to enjoy an excellent dinner. Jordan, our waiter, was outstanding.

The food as usual was outstanding. Cooked perfectly and always delicious. However, tonight the service was terrible! Our waiter (Jeremy) took 20 minutes to take the wine order, 30 minutes to deliver bread and messed up the food orders. Our Son was as disappointed as we were. Worst experience here in years. Jeremy should be on probation. He just doesn’t care about customer experience.

I ordered the filet and my husband ordered the NY Strip. Both were outstanding. We had the wedge salad, the Aronoff and mashed potatoes as sides. All were delicious. Since we were celebrating 2 birthdays and our anniversary, our waiter brought our sample dessert plates to celebrate. In addition, my husband ordered the peanut butter pie and our friends had the chocolate cake...again, delicious! Not only is the food superb, but we never felt rushed; it was truly an evening to eat, relax and have conversations.

We were happy to get a table at Jeff Ruby’s last minute!!!! Hadn’t been in a couple years and my husband and I got seated at a lovely booth overlooking the entire place, underneath the incredible chandelier. Everything was perfect, the wine, the staff, the steak, everything. We ordered oysters and shrimp cocktail, and as always, so good. For dessert was the skillet cookie, and it was amazing. Perfect date night away from the kids!
