    To be honest, I’ve eaten at many nice steakhouses… the food did NOT equate to the pricing here. We had to salt everything, which is very unusual, and there was nothing particularly special about any of the food we ate. For a nearly $400 dinner, I was underwhelmed with our server, although the other employees were very personable and attentive.

    It would be so much better if they didn’t over sauce everything. Drinks were great. Food was good but to much sauce on every dish. This is second I’ve been and both experiences were the same.

    Our waiter, David went above and beyond to give us an experience we won’t forget. He was so warm, friendly, and funny! Every bite of food was out of this world. My husband and I took my parents there for their birthdays and the staff surprised them with a beautiful assortment of desserts with edible decorations. It was their first time there, but I’m sure it won’t be their last!

    Me and my wife found the food to be amazing. I have been to several steakhouse and the steak was definitely at the top. However the drinks were sub par, say compared to Eddie Merlot's. They lacked balance and were not enjoyable to sip and felt geared more towards getting drunk instead of focusing on flavors. The service was incredible and they replaced my wife's drink without question. The replacement was much improved but still lacking. Overall we had an amazing time since everything but the drinks was perfect. If you are a streak person, it is the place to go.

    I love Jeff Ruby's. We celebrated my birthday. Unfortunately, I was unaware that I had a fractured jaw but refused to cancel our reservations. About 1/2 way through our meal, I realized my jaw pain was a little more than a TMJ flare-up... but I don't regret it. There is no better way to celebrate my birthday than with a Jeff Ruby's steak and a glass of bourbon

    Our first time at this restaurant and everything was perfect. Brian kept the water glasses filled and Joe, our server, was the best ever. The atmosphere was lovely and elegant, and the food over the top. Such an amazing dining experience, and easily the very best steakhouse in Columbus. We highly recommend it.

    Usually get a darn good Rubys professional waiter. This time we had “Sean”. Fiancé birthday and first time for future in-laws at Ruby’s. Service was great. Until the $95 porterhouse (order medium rare) came out charred but the waiter assured us it was “normal” and insisted that the strip side was medium rare. When obviously the filet side was not only well done but charred! We didn’t want to push and “be that table”. Suffice it to say, we were highly displeased and didn’t expect that kinda pushback from a “Ruby’s” well run company. Totally bummed out the mood and parent’s first experience. Figure you spend a $1,000, you expect “Ruby’s” level experience and dining.

    Overall a good experience (always go for birthdays). Service and ambiance fabulous. First time ever, though, don’t feel the steak was up to standard. Very fatty/grissly and definitely the 22 oz Cowboy steal much smaller than 22 oz. Felt a bit cheated paying $94 for this steak that has been so good in the past. Will return, as hoping this was a one off. Jeff Ruby’s always on the pricier side - and don’t mind paying if quality of food remains good/consistent

    We had the best time, thanks to our excellent server, Erin. I brought my mother to Columbus for a couple of days and she wanted a nice meal. I requested a quiet booth and an early reservation. We got an early seating and they seated us downstairs. Erin was friendly, knowledgeable, and so sweet. She took extra special care of my mother. We cannot say a negative word about the experience. Food was amazing and the service was too. Thanks so much for making this a special trip.

    Our waiter, Mark, was excellent! Personable, friendly, and made this a great experience! Food was incredible, too! I ordered the Godfather Roll (sushi) which was just wow. We ordered a few sides (the macaroni & cheese is bomb) along with our main entree (barrel-cut filet mignon for me and my girlfriend got the lemon roasted chicken). Wine selection & pairing was spot on, and they even brought out a complimentary dessert for my birthday. Would highly recommend this place, our waiter Mark, and the entire staff if you want a nice dinner experience in Columbus!

    The good: Service was impeccable. Server Shawn and his team were professional and efficient. The petite filet was as good as it gets for that cut of meat. Since the sides are large sharables, we didn't want two sides. Shawn offered 1/2 side for the brussel sprouts which was perfect. The bad: The Lobster Burrow 6oz filet cut was substandard in tenderness compared to the petite cut. Much tougher, more like sirloin. The lobster portion was mediocre at best. Not much flavor. I should have stuck to house specialties. My 1st time at J.R. Pricing was extremely high IMO for Columbus OH. Check the menu online before you go.

    Erin was phenomenal! We requested “Erin” because she was our waitress/bartender 3 years ago, but this was a different Erin, and she had the best personality and even laughed with us about her being someone we didn’t know. It was a great night, and I have no problem requesting “Erin” in the future because both have been amazing and had patience with us!!!! Thank you again for an amazing evening on our Anniversary!!!!!
