    I had reservations for my once every 4 years of a birthday on 2/29 and this place earned a special place in my heart. Our server, Tony, was absolutely amazing ensuring we had everything we needed and making sure we’re well informed in whatever questions we had. The food was fresh, hot and delicious, worth every penny spent. I will be returning for my 9 year anniversary in March.

    The four of us had a lovely dinner. Service and food were top notch as expected. I was disappointed however to be seated next to the kitchen access after making reservations 4 weeks in advance. I would not say the noise level was energetic, I’d say it was loud because we heard so much kitchen noise.

    Jorge was amazing! Would definitely ask for him personally next time. I believe I got someone else’s steak though. I ordered a 8oz filet medium rare and got one that was well done and so dry that I had to use my husbands bernaise to eat it. I thought the prices were a little overkill, especially when I can go to another Jeff Ruby restaurant where side and salad are included. The atmosphere is very posh, but extremely loud.

    Great food, great service. It was extremely busy and kinda loud, but the service or the food were not impacted by it. The side dishes are large and serve several people so it is better to share; our server recommended that. Everything was very good, just be ready because it is very expensive, but you can see that from the menu.

    What a wonderful experience at this first class restaurant. We were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in until we left. The food was excellent as well as our waiter and servers. The manager even stopped by to chat and ask about the service. What a truly remarkable night to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! Outstanding all around!

    My girlfriend and I dined here for her birthday. All of the staff was phenomenal. Our waiter Jorge was outstanding. Great knowledge of the menu, and he made our experience all the better. She got the cranberry cocktail, it was fine, same with the margarita. Ceviche was delicious, as was the Freddie salad. Caesar salad will be skipped for sure next time. Steaks were both cooked lot our liking, and were fantastic. The Mac and cheese was not my favorite and the mashed potatoes were good, but maybe not worth it for next time. Lobster gnocchi was delicious as well, and for her birthday she got a lil trio of desserts from the house that were all delicious. Ambience was cool, and clean. Staff and service was great. Great first experience excited to come back. Thank you Jorge for a great time.

The food was exquisite and made to order. We topped the dinner off with the Air Ruby "Red" for my 60th. Incredible evening and thank you to the entire staff!

    At any Ruby’s, you expect a premium experience, and that’s what we enjoyed in this visit. Seating was prompt, at time of our reservation. We enjoyed a lovely booth at the side of the main dining room. Our servers were friendly and helpful. We ordered salads, entrees, potatoes, and desserts, and we enjoyed every course. Great experience!

    Jeff Ruby's restaurants always have the best food. We usually eat at Johnny and Carlos but decided to try the new location downtown. The food, service, and ambiance lived up to the normal Ruby outstanding expectations. The menu is a little different, and the additions are a plus. The "Potatoes Anna" is great with the steak. The "Air Ruby" is a work of art. The detail of the Jordan shoe is phenomenal, and the taste of the cake may be extremely rich, but it is good.

    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.
