    Very nice place enjoyed ..the bar is super slow …even with 3 bartenders takes for ever to get a drink….seems a lot of chit chat happens behind the bar even though people are waiting to be served….main dining room was very nice but so busy that the food comes out luke warm. These things do not happen at Carlo and Johnny which I go to more often ….just my personal experience…but did enjoy the evening

    My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of our Jeff Ruby experiences up until last night. Jeff Ruby’s sets the bar high for expectations with service and honestly nothing seemed to go right from start to finish. We had an 8:15 reservation for 6 in the Bar area to celebrate my birthday. They attempted to seat us at 8:30 in the main dining area despite my reservation request and we weren’t able to be sat at our bar table until 8:50, over 30 minutes late from the original reservation. When we were finally seated it took nearly 40 minutes from the moment we ordered our bottle of wine for it to be delivered to the table. Our food as always was delicious which was our saving grace. However that being said our side dish was forgotten and delivered late after the rest of our meal. Another guest we were with ordered a second glass of wine but the wrong type of wine was delivered after another long delay. The valet closes at midnight and my husband had to leave the table to get the car before it closed because we were still waiting on our checks after an almost 4 hour ordeal. When we were boxing our own meals the server asked if we were taking the porterhouse bone from our $121 steak because if not her dog would love it. I understand and appreciate the dining experience that Ruby restaurants have to offer but they really missed the mark yesterday.

It was my guests birthday, and Umit made the night memorable. I recommend dining here at least once in your life. The service and atmosphere were impeccable. Classy and the food was divine. Left a few requests at the reservation and they were followed to a tee. Fantastic experience

    Service was great, vibe is cool. Steaks were hammered and chewy, very disappointing. Too late in the night to send back but ordered both med rare and came out med well to well done. Crabcake and Freddy salad were good but tough to pay that much for chewy, overcooked steaks. I've never had bad steaks at the Precinct but this is the 3rd questionable meal I've had at Ruby's. Think it's not a coincidence anymore

    Came to Ruby’s for Valentine’s Day date night, and it did not disappoint. Everything was amazing and I can’t stop thinking about the lobster gnocchi….sooooo good! I had the It’s Britney Spritz cocktail, which was light and delicious (pictured). We ordered the crab cake appetizer which was amazing…then split a Freddie salad (which was plenty…it seemed like we each got a full sized one!). Then I had the filet mignon with lobster gnocchi, and my husband had the NY strip with loaded baked potato. I finished mine off with literally the best tasting Merlot I’ve ever had. Obviously a pricy night out, but love love loved this experience for a special occasion! 💕

    Went here with my partner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was the most incredible dining experience ever! We had an 8pm reservation but we arrived a bit early and were seated around 7:50pm. Our server, Joseph, was very attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Since it was our first time in, he went over the menu with us and gave us recommendations for steaks, wine pairings, and desserts. He also gave us tips while ordering, such as recommending that I order a half portion of a salad instead of a full portion, as the salads are enormous. We really appreciated his advice! My partner had 2 of the Brandon’s Smokin’ Maple Old Fashioned, which had the most incredible smoky flavor! I had the Cranberry Creamsicle cocktail which was light and fruity. I also had a red wine recommended to me by Joseph with my steak. My partner had the Wagyu meatball as an appetizer, and it was so delicious. It was very tender and quite large! I had a half portion of the classic caesar salad, which was also delicious! The baked parmesan crisps that topped the salad made it stand out from other caesars I have had. For entrees, my partner ordered the 12oz barrel cut fillet with bourbon peppercorn sauce on top. He ordered it rare. It was cooked perfectly, and he described it as “the best piece of meat he’s ever eaten!” I ordered the 8oz petit filet, medium rare, topped with roasted garlic butter. My steak was also cooked just to my liking and the garlic butter tasted incredible on top. We shared the baked macaroni and cheese and the Tso’s green beans as sides. Both were very large portions which we ended up taking home! For dessert, we ordered the Affogato, which was prepared tableside for us. One of the managers, Corey, visited our table to ensure our experience was top-notch. She was very kind, friendly, and welcoming! Overall incredible experience. We will dine here again.
