When you dine at a Jeff Ruby's restaurant, you can count on 5 star food served with 5 star service. It's much more than a restaurant, it's a dining experience. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel important. The food, service and ambience is truly first class. Jeff Ruby gets "it". I have been to great steak houses around the country, but none can compare to Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. Can't wait til next time.

The service was very well timed - we had a nice leisurely dinner, they were within eyesight if we needed anything but not hovering. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable evening. All aspects were amazing. Ambience, background live music is not too loud, drinks, wine recommendation, appetizers, salad, steaks and dessert were wonderful. Service was outstanding. I do not come to this location as often as the others but I have never been disappointed.
Next stop is the new location in Columbus to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from law school on May 11. Looking forward to it

While the food and service were excellent, the restaurant was so noisy it was almost impossible to have a decent conversation. Prices were also astronomical for what you were served.

We really enjoyed our five year anniversary at Jeff Ruby's. Service was impeccable, food was great. Only comment would be that one of our steaks was over cooked. We didn't alert the server being that we had plans and didnt want to jeopardize missing them to wait for a recooked steak. All in all, still a great experience.

Dinner at Jeff Ruby's is always a great experience! This was definitely the longest we have had to wait for our meals but the servers were excellent. The steaks were very good, maybe just a bit overcooked, definitely not medium, but were still flavorful and tender. Usually, the grilled asparagus is perfect but this time it had a strange aftertaste so we didn't eat much of it. Overall, still a great experience.

It was our first time at Jeff Ruby's and our experience was all and more than we expected. The attention to detail from the waiter, maitre' D the kitchen was superb. The food was prepared to perfection, and portions were appropriate. As it was my birthday, I was pleasantly surprised that my desert selection was complimentary. Thank you! We look forward to coming again!

We had Gary as our server and he was outstanding! He was very friendly and made sure we had any and all of our questions answered. He was not pushy about anything and we really enjoyed him. Towards the end of our birthday dinner he also brought me a Jeff Ruby's baby onesie as he could tell I'm visibly pregnant at 8 months in. It was a very thoughtful thing and I really appreciated the kind gesture. We will most definitely be going back to Jeff Ruby's in the future!

I'm a cincinnati native, but this was my first time dining here. The staff was professional, but not "stuffy" and the customer service was like nothing I've ever experienced. It is out of our budget for normal dining, but I highly recommend everyone make a reservation at least once in their life!

When you’re spending $100+ a person on dinner you expect everything to be fantastic. We dine here a few times a year, usually for a special occasion and usually have a great meal. This time was different, our steaks were not perfect and my husbands was under cooked. They took his back to the kitchen to fix it but then it tasted worse. We left feeling unsatisfied.

The steak is superb! The decor is interesting and it makes you want to walk around and take pictures. The bar is from 1890's. The food and beverages along with the service was spectacular. I would recommend Jeff Ruby's to all that are in downtown Cincy.
