The Jeff ruby jewel is a cowboy ribeye with a chili sauce and it was seared to perfection and worth every penny! Drinks were delivered fast and we’re delicious !

Best service I have ever received: special occasion group of 4. Jordan went above and beyond in every area. Restaurant is absolutely stunning like the other Jeff Ruby's I have been to, in Nashville. Filet was a tad over medium rare and too charred but lobster tail was the best I've ever had. Pricy but worth it for special moments when the service is so stellar!

The restaurant interior is Amazing. Walking to your table you will notice all the staff is smiling, and attentive. Bussing, crumbing, and refills were all done quickly, and unnoticed. Filet, and new york strip were both great with the collinsworth steak topping. I like how the shareable sides were delivered, and served tableside. Rachel and the manager made sure our dining experience was amazing. We will surely be back.

Our Jeff Ruby experience was fantastic! We were treated very special as soon as we walked in the door. Our waiter was very attentive, personable and topnotch. Atmosphere is exquisite, the entertainment amazing, playing so many great songs. And of course the food was the best! Crab legs were perfectly cracked, steak melted in your mouth and side dishes were delicious.

From start to finish Jeff Ruby Steakhouse did not disappoint! Taylor our waiter was informative, professional and had a great sense of humor dealing with our party. The sushi was fresh, steaks were done to perfection and the signature cheesecake was probably the best I’ve tasted in a restaurant setting. We will definitely be back for our next Jeff Ruby experience!

Very good service the waiters are well trained and know the menu. The decorations are over the top . Not your everyday Resturant on the pricey side . We thought the wine was very over priced the food was excellent and what you expect in a top restaurant. We will go back sometime. Was the middle of the week and busy a lot or Business people . This is a once a year restaurant do to price but you should go just to see the place over the top like Las Vegas comes to Columbus

Undercooked lobster, ok service, no soap in men’s room. Not what I’d expect for the prices. Had to ask for things like water refills and new silverware after they took away with previous course. Band was great!

Fun atmosphere and decor. Our server Justin was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. My wife and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. I had the cowboy steak Med rare and my wife had the strip Med (which was a recommendation for that night) mine was delicious but hers was even better due to a little extra char from being cooked to medium. The potatoes au gratin were also delicious. Mac and cheese was good but nothing to rave about in my opinion. It is pricey but part of what you pay for is the top notch service and “experience” Justin went above and beyond to make it a special and fun night for us. Will definitely be back

This was our first time at this fairly new Columbus restaurant. It was my husband's birthday and he's a steak-lover so I booked a table. WOW! We had an awesome time and enjoyed every second there! The steaks were amazing - worth the price which almost kept me away. The bone-in steaks were pricey so we stuck with a regular 8-oz filet mignon (priced comparably to other area restaurants) which he enjoyed and I had the table-side prepared Steak Diane which just melted in my mouth. The sides were ala carte and big enough to share which is what we did. Cheesecake for dessert was complimentary for our celebration and was surprising light as well as delicious. We were taken care of by our server, Peter, who was on top of everything. We cannot wait to go back for cocktails and sit at the beautiful bar and try some appetizers and other items - maybe some seafood. Already planning to take our In-Laws there for their anniversary. Loved the decor and elegant chandeliers. Right now, I believe this is the best restaurant in Central Ohio.

The lobster tail was over cooked and over-priced. Sides (sauteed mushrooms, au gratin potatoes and wedge salad) were better, but still over-priced. Dinner for 5 was over $800. Don't understand the hype about this place.

Ordered multiple different Steaks to share, they came sliced & presented well on a wood platter. Everyone really enjoyed being able to try a variety. As well as the variety of sides & desserts.

Excellent service & evening.

If with a group its definitely the way to order, if everyone is open to it. My concern was people liking there steaks cooked different. People that like there steak more medium well went for the end pieces, medium rare went for the center slices. So it worked out perfect.

Service excellent in all respects. Food average or slightly below and definitely below value for the price. Some ‘gristle’ throughout my 8oz. filet which was otherwise uninspired. Caesar salad was enormous and surprisingly over-dressed with what must have been out of the jar stuff. Cappuccinos Luke warm.

We wanted to celebrate after my son’s graduation from Ohio State with a memorable meal in a comfortable and special atmosphere. Jeff Ruby’s delivered! The restaurant itself was exactly what I hoped for - a gorgeous setting that made us feel catered to. The food - amazing. Started with drinks and two kinds of oysters on the half shell. My son was thrilled to find a craft beer he’d been wanting to try available on draft. We moved to steaks, four kinds of sauces to try on the side (don’t miss the onion jam!) and sides to share with a great bottle of wine. Peter was a gem and advised us on the menu to ensure we had a perfect dining experience! We will be back!!
