    My daughter and I had a fantastic lunch to kick off the Christmas season. Jeff Ruby’s always does it right. From the moment you walk thru the door to the host welcoming you to the walk thru the dining room to the wait staff graciously taking your orders to the amazing food to the maitre d' stopping by to say hello, the experience you have at Jeff Ruby’s is outstanding.

    Last night was our first visit to the new Jeff Ruby's location. We had an amazing time celebrating two birthdays and a wedding anniversary! Our waiter Peter made sure the evening was perfect. When he learned of our interest in Interior Design, he gave us a quick around the dining room. Peter and Jorge made us feel right at home and served us an experience that we will never forget!

    The new location is excellent. We dined at4 pm on Sunday and the restaurant was quiet. I am sure this will change after the Bengals home game ends and people flood in to eat. The food was excellent but what really sets Jeff Ruby restaurants apart is the level of service. It is second to none.

    There is no coatroom at the new location by fountain square. It is tacky that customers have to put their coats on the back of their chairs. Otherwise, the new restaurant is dazzling. The service is impeccable and the food is very good- although the brussels sprouts are a tad salty for my liking. As expected, the price for the meal was quite expensive.

    Always look forward to any of Jeff Ruby's restaurants. Our first visit to the new location on Vine Street certainly did not disappoint. What a beautiful restaurant. As always the food and service were outstanding. The waitstaff were all very attentive and friendly. Our waiter, Nevarre, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and very attentive. The entire evening could not have been better.

    Themed interior is very gaudy. Separate rooms appear to be ripe for a fire trap. Food and service exceptional but prices are ridiculous. Nearly $200 per person with a steak, 2 sides, small appetizer and 2 drinks.

    The new location seems to be more for business meeting dinners vs. special occasion or meals with friends. The chandeliers are beautiful but it’s too much lighting which definitely effects the mood. The bar area was beautiful and the piano player was phenomenal but I think I will be going elsewhere when we have dinners to celebrate special occasions. The “raw bar” is usually my favorite but the shrimp wasn’t up to par the night we visited which is very unusual. Service was off as well as we definitely felt hurried as hot towels were brought out while still having appetizers and as soon as we opened them up the were waiting to clear our plates to serve our main course. Confusion during payment and received someone else’s credit card and bill vs ours to end the night. Made our 19th anniversary dinner feel very transactional unfortunately!

    EDIT: JR made it right! After posting my initial review, a representative for Jeff Ruby’s reached out to us and was very concerned about the experience that we had. He apologized and said they take these matters very seriously. He corrected our bill and gave us a gift card to return and give them another chance. We truly appreciate this as we’ve enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at various JR restaurants for the past 11 years. We’re all human and mistakes happen but it is how we handle them that speaks volumes. Thank you, Angel and the JR team. It would’ve been 5 stars. The atmosphere was great as well as the food but my husband’s steak came out well done. The manager immediately made it right and even took the item off the bill, or so we thought. There was an issue with gift cards we used and the server messed up the bill 3 times. Finally, we paid and left. Upon arriving home we reviewed the bill and they ended up charging us again for the well done steak. We called the restaurant that night and left a message, no response. We called the following day and spoke with a hostess who assured us someone would call us right back, no response. Honestly, this experience has tainted our view of the always reliable JR experience. Very saddened by this because we enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there every year.

    Brittany our server and Cole, her assistant were absolutely fabulous! We love the new restaurant and we’re able to sit in the bar area. I wasn’t too impressed with the music Sat. Night. I didn’t know if it was the band or if there was a problem with the sound system. Food was excellent as always and we were able to check out the entire restaurant. We will be back.

    If only I could give 20 stars. This is arguably one of the classiest restaurants around. Our dining experience was incredible and the food was spectacular. Our server Bryan “Hoagie” truly made the evening. Bryan was almost as good as the Butter Pie. All in all a truly magical experience.
