Umit always does an excellent job every time we visit. The service level is excellent.
Food was delicious and service was wonderful.
One of the chewiest steaks I've had there. Medium rare was ordered, cane back well done.
I didn't send it back though.
Was in town for my girlfriends birthday. Booked a last minute reservation due to a cancellation, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in town.
Well done!! Celebration to remember
We dined to celebrate our anniversary. Pedro was our server. Wonderful experience!
Excellent, excellent, excellent!
Outstanding experience at Jeff Ruby’s. We were celebrating my birthday and our recent engagement. The server was phenomenal, the food delicious, and the ambiance perfection. We cannot wait to come back!!
Beautiful ambience. Incredible food. Impeccable service. We’ve been to a couple of different Jeff Ruby’s restaurants, and they always exceed our expectations! It’s definitely worth the splurge!
This was one of our first times out since the quarantine. We figured if any restaurant was going to do things “right” it would be Ruby. All servers were masked, however, our server and many others wore their masks under their noses. Made me wonder what the guys back in the kitchen were doing for safety measures. Our steaks were SEVERELY underdone. Medium was ordered and they were bright purple inside. They were out of one of the liquors we requested for a drink. It just didn’t seem like a usual night at Ruby’s. It will be awhile before I go back or to any other restaurant, as I hoped Jeff Ruby would have measures in place to keep everyone safe and happy.
Outstanding food and fantastic service.
My hosts made a 98 year old WW II Purple Heart hero feel very special. It was his first time at Jeff Ruby’s and said it was one of the finest meals he has ever had. Our waiter and his support staff were attentive discrete and kind. The manager even approached our table to see to our needs and put the icing on cake. We also received a veterans discount for my friend’s meal for his service in the military which was greatly appreciated by my veteran friend. I appreciate the manager or the company’s policy for this kind gesture of respect and appreciation. My sincerest thank you to everyone who helped put a big smile on a aging patriot’s face and an excellent meal in his stomach that was often hungry during war time. Thank you again.

As always, Jeff Ruby's doesn't disappoint! Service, food and atmosphere are all top notch!
Absolutely lived up to the Ruby reputation. Perfect as usual!
The staff at any Jeff Ruby "Culinary Entertainment" that I have been to, including the Precinct, Carlo & Johnny's, Louisville, as well as the former Waterfront and Newport on the Levee locations, has consistently been spectacular, and my first visit to Downtown Cincinnati's 7th and Walnut location did not disappoint - the staff was awesome! Our Server, Umet, was very attentive, listened very well to our particular requests and was spot on in delivering exactly what we were seeking with every detail of every course. Our mixed drinks were nuanced per our request, my request for tweaks to the Caesar Salad were executed to perfection, as was the precise rare-to-medium-rare grill of our steaks. Although not a complaint, my personal observation would be that a $300 tab for dinner for two is just more than I can, in good conscious, spend for a dinner - even for a special occasion, (as this was). That said, Jeff Ruby venues always deliver exactly what is expected, which is the flawless execution of the perfect experience.
I ordered a medium well barrel cut filet and received a medium rare filet. After taking it back to the kitchen and cooking it longer, some of it came out very dry and one part of it was still under cooked. All that was offered was a free dessert.
I usually enjoy the experience here, but this visit was an exception. We may not be visiting again.
Jeff Ruby’s sets the bar high for customer service and food excellence.
Excellent service! Umit continues to provide too-notch hospitality with a personal touch. Thank you for skeets taking such good care of us.
Glad to see them reopened. Food and service was great. But with the efforts to meet the restrictions and manage reduced capacity, the meal is very rushed. Cannot enjoy a leisurely dinner. A lot to spend when having to rush through the meal.
Great Birthday experience, will definitely be back!!!
Excellent in every way!
Best meal I've ever eaten! Took my husband here for his 40th birthday and this was his first time eating at a Jeff Ruby restaurant and he was completely blown away!
Had to get out of the house and celebrate! JR's has handled the re-opening and social distancing well. Atmosphere still fine (under the circumstances). Staff great as usual. Food superb. Second-best thing is what I call my "Jeff Ruby's Omelet" a day or two later with the leftovers!
Food was amazing, portions were large. A perfect meal!!
Service was excellent and food superb! Will be back
Sam, our server was excellent. There were a few service hiccups around an incorrect item on our order and she quickly made it right and went out of her way to ensure an excellent dining experience.
As always the food was amazing.
As usual ,excellent by any standard.
We've eaten at Carlo and Johny, The Precinct, Jeff Ruby Lexington, and now Jeff Ruby Cincinnati. We can't decide which is our favorite, but love them all.
I work at a fine dining steakhouse and thought I had tasted the best, then I came to Jeff Ruby's. I'm extremely picky and this was some of the best food I've ever had. I had the cowboy Ribeye was so filled with flavor I didnt even think twice about it being $72 (totally worth it). Our server Dustin was so helpful with wine pairings and dessert choices. Everything came out at the exact time it should have and I never felt rushed. Back waiters were super helpful and kind. I've been to a lot of places and eaten a lot of good food, but this was probably the best. If you're in Cincinnati and can get a table, you must go!
We normally have excellent dining experiences at Ruby’s but unfortunately we were seated near the bar area at a high top table. Our service was mediocre at best and we were a little uncomfortable sitting at high tops. People walking by repeatedly bumped into my husband which was really irritating.
The food was exceptional though.
Another fantastic experience at Jeff Ruby’s! The restaurant made every effort to ensure that we had a safe but exceptional dinner. The limited menu (due to Covid) still offered plenty of options and we all left fully satisfied.
Another fabulous meal.
Due to the Corona-virus, we have missed the Aronoff & eating pre-theatre at Jeff Ruby's steakhouse... So we decided to drive DT for both my husband's favorite steak & our wonderful server Tony (he's like family)! If you've never eaten there, you are really missing out! But remember the number of seatings has declined (due to safety/distance of seating)...so make your reservation as soon as possible!
We had a wonderful Father's Day dinner on Saturday evening. We are thrilled that J Rube's is open and that the experience is better than ever. From the reservation process to signing the bill we had an outstanding experience. Katie was attentive, anticipated our needs, and made sure we had an exceptional experience. We look forward to the next time. Thank you for reopening and enabling us to have yet another first class experience.
Let them know you are there for your special occasion (birthday in our case). They are so sweet about it!
