    It was so great to see the best of the best still at my favorite restaurant in the world! Josh is always extraordinary at making you feel like you are with family! Brett was superb and Kat at the bar is working like a bee but makes sure everyone is always happy! Always smiling! Ruby’s hostess always smiling! Valets were so polite and speedy! I received many hello’s from all I have missed since Covid! It’s great to see the Ruby’s family! I look forward to the relocation! Ruby’s is the G.O.A.T Love you all! & you’re a place to dine! Lol

    Great service and wonderful food ! All my requests were honored and Tony provided outstanding service. They even bagged our leftovers and put them in the cooler for us to pick up after the play. We hope that their new location will be big enough to have a dance floor. It’s sure hard to hear top notch bands like Airwave and not be able to dance.

    American restaurant with good choose of meat around the world and American. Unfortunately meat are too salty and with pepper that doesn’t allow to taste the real meat. Good choose of wine and cocktail. Prices too high and not justified in my opinion

    Thank you so much for making our evening special - the food was great as was the service. We thank you waiter Chris for substituting our french fries when the original ones were luke warm. Our only comment is that your portions are so large - we would love to have 1/2 portions even if they were not 1/2 price at least for the salads. A

    Very disappointed in the food except the Caesar salad was excellent and the mango mules. I had the halibut which was very overdone and dry. My husband had the diver some which was also overdone. Was expecting way better. We did not send back as we had tickets to the play. Brooke was lovely but we also felt a bit rushed.

    Normally, I would give Jeff Ruby's a five star review, but I"m giving this visit four. Here's what was five stars about this experience: 1. Travis - He was a wonderful waiter. He listened, he knew how to perfectly pace our meal, and he went above and beyond to make the two people celebrating birthdays feel very special. 2. The food - It consistently does not disappoint. I mean it is that good! Here's where the night feel a bit short: We dined there on Saturday night. I had made a reservation a few months ago, and in the reservation, I requested a specific booth in the restaurant (the one we've sat in at least four times before). When my husband checked in, the hostess tried to sit us in the back room. When my husband told her we requested a specific booth and were celebrating two birthdays, the hostess was rude and acted as we inconvenienced her. We waited in the restaurant lobby for 30 minutes while the hostess tried to "figure it out." This was not the way to kick off our night since we did not get seated until 8:45 pm. I found the main hostess rude, dismissive and unfriendly. This was her first chance to make a great impression, and she did not.

    Food was amazing! We travel to Cincy twice a year and often wait an extra day just to fit in a visit to Jeff Ruby’s. The Godfather roll is amazing and the highlight of every trip. Any steak you order will melt in your mouth and be something to write home about! We tried their new appetizer Lobster Gnocchi and it did not disappoint. The only downside of our most recent visit is we sat in the bar which was not the best experience. We ended up shouting our dinner conversation over the piano player. We made our reservations about 6 weeks in advance - which is an illustration of how good this place is!

    Unfortunately, I can't seem to get a consistent experience at Jeff's. Had the best NY strip of my life at the Precinct a few weeks ago. The NY strip downtown on this visit was so loaded with seasoning that I could not eat it and my plate was orange like Lowery's salt. I didn't send it back as the evening was dragging along and we had show tickets. Similar to a visit I had in Nashville a couple of years ago.

    We had a lovely dining experience with Dallas and Shelby being attentive making sure our anniversary celebration was the best possible. We’ve dined here since it opened in 1999. We wanted one last date night here where we sat and reflected on the many occasions we’ve been there before this location becomes an event space. It was a great evening!
