One of the top restaurants in the country, let alone Cincinnati. Fantastic personal service, excellent food, beautiful retro steakhouse looks, and ambiance. It's always a pleasure to dine at Ruby's downtown.

My boyfriend and I went for his birthday and we had the most amazing time! Not only was the food spectacular, but the service was outstanding and we even got a picture taken of us by the server himself!

Steak Collinsworth is a must. Service is always top notch. Seafood tower is advised for those folks that love fresh shrimp and crab.

Great place but if going for business request to be seated in the back. They typically have a live band in the front.

Great restaurant if you are looking for a top notch meal or celebrating a special occasion. The wait staff is knowledgeable and professional. You feel very taken care of without the over-the-top uncomfortable feelings. Upscale clientele, but can sometimes be difficult having a quiet/intimate conversation due to the ambient noise levels. Food is spectacular! Wine list is extensive! And the desserts are delicious and decadent. Left overs are packaged nicely and put into a nice bag that has uses well after the meal is over. The take home extras are are great reminder of the fantastic meal that was enjoyed the day or days before. Great place and on my speed dial.

Went here for our 10th Anniversary and it was outstanding. Every member of the staff knew it was a special occasion and congratulated us. The food was incredible. Service was top notch. Everything comes with a hefty price but you definitely get what you pay for so it's perfect for a special occasion. You may find steakhouses that are this good in other cities but you won't find one better than Ruby's.

Any time I've mentioned loving a good steak, Cincinnati people always tell me to check out Jeff Ruby's. So, I did. We had reservations on a Friday, which we had to book several weeks out. That is ok, I can wait for good food. We arrived and were seated promptly, but waited quite some time before our server arrived. He was exceptionally slow and seemingly distracted throughout the meal. and kept calling me "buddy" which was a little annoying and seemed out of place for this level of establishment. I started with a caesar. It was rather plain, little dressing and not very much zip to it. For entrees, I had the Porterhouse crowned with the cognac peppercorn sauce and my dining companion had the Cowboy Steak. As a side we split the Steakhouse Hash Browns. The potatoes managed to arrive very hot, but undercooked. They had very little taste to them. The steaks were good, but I have honestly had better seasoned steaks at Outback. As a note, we were not the only ones who weren't thrilled with our meal. The man sitting next to us, whom we did not know, actually leaned over and asked what we thought, because he was not very happy with his choices. After the disappointment of the start, we decided to skip the dessert although there were a few items that sounded very good. If you want a great steak, I would recommend looking at Capital Grille or somewhere else, because for the price tag, this doesn't make the cut.

We all agreed (there were four of us) that this was the best meal we ever had - and the best filet we ever had - every single food item served was outstanding. Now, it will cost you, but this is a "special treat" meal - and well worth it!

Impeccable service (Thank you, Travis!!), fabulous food, a gorgeous dining room.....Jeff Ruby's has it all. We were in Cincinnati for the weekend, and had to try Ruby's Steakhouse. It did NOT disappoint! You pay a premium price, but it was well worth it. Would definitely return!

Always a memorable meal and experience. The service is impeccable...even with those patrons who are less than gracious! Worth every penny for a steak that is cooked to perfection...even when rare!

Everyone says you have to try Jeff Ruby's and now I understand why. The quality and service you receive are top notch. I loved everything that I tried and we were checked on several times throughout the meal. Romantic but not overly dark and sappy. This place is simply wonderful
