The first & only steakhouse of its kind in the Louisville area, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves only dry-aged USDA prime beef. While steak is the foundation of the menu, Jeff Ruby's promises to please seafood lovers as well with its raw/sushi bar & seafood entrees.
Jeff Ruby regulars will be pleased to know that their favorite signature items from the Cincinnati restaurants will be well represented in Louisville. The bone-in filet, the 7 cheese baked macaroni, creamed spinach, truffle flake creamed corn, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake will all be staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930's & 40's, Jeff Ruby's promises to be as pleasing visually as it is to the palate. French art-deco design, plush mohair upholstery, hand selected antique furniture and cinematic crystal chandeliers anchored by a 1950s-era antique featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32 foot wall of wine.

My girlfriends son was having his 18th birthday and we were celebrating him joining our military. We wanted the night to be special and it couldn't have been any more than excellent.
Thank you for making it a night to remember

It was my Son's 30th Birthday. Put that in the notes when reservation made. Was very disappointed that no one at Jeff Ruby's took the time to read the special occasion notes I entered when I made reservation on Open Table. Not one person mentioned it to us. Not one person called us by our name, and that was in the reservation as well. This could have so easily been a 5-star review across the board as our steaks were magnificent, and cooked perfectly . Bone in filet simply the best. The sides were spot on as well. Hash Browns and Mac & Cheese live up to its billing. William's service was good, and the support staff behind him even better.

But it all goes back to the fact, I chose your place for a very special occasion, and you didn't read the notes. Wasn't going to bring it up in front of him at the table. One simple 'Happy Birthday John' or thank you for spending your birthday with us, from anyone at the restaurant, would have been nice. Great food, yes. 5-Star experience, no. Don't miss the small stuff.

Jeff Ruby's is a first class establishment from the moment you valet, until you finish your desert.

The atmosphere is electric and bustling with some light music from above the half moon bar, which is perfect for a pre meal cocktail.

The service is top of the line, and the staff is very professional, but also easy to converse with for meal questions and information about the restaurant and area.

The food is nothing short of fantastic. All of it. Steaks and sides were absolutely perfect.

From the drinks to the desert, it was the best meal and experience we could have asked for.

We have been several times and can't wait to return. It's the best experience around, by far.

This is always one of my favorite places to go. It's consistent and the food is always perfectly prepared. It's always our first choice when going to the theater, as it's within walking distance of the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Customer service is top notch here and the drinks are wonderful. I don't remember seeing such a great wine list. I love the lively bar area and the main dinning room is lively but, cozy also. Can't wait to go again!

Absolutly the best service ever from John and Lee as a team. They do not 'bug you' just make sure you have what you want when you want it. The fresh oysters were incredible and my NY strip was as tender a steak as I have ever had.

The food, ambiance and service are excellent. You should be prepared to pay, though, and I’m not sure it’s worth what they charge. There are many upscale steakhouses who serve delicious meals in a beautiful environment. This one is one of the best but also one of the most expensive.

After trying all of the Jeff Ruby's Restaurant in Ohio, I am not a fan of the food in Louisville. The root vegetables tasted like dirt, the Salmon was good however. My friends 60 dollar steak was overcooked and fries were cold. Come on this is unacceptable!!!!

Tuna appetizer was a great start to the meal. Unfortunately, that's where it ended. The Ceasar salad was drenched in dressing and not edible. We waited nearly an hour after the salad for our entrees and when we asked the server what the long wait was for, he quickly said something about the mac and cheese side not being perfect, so they had to remake it? Which is interesting, because when it arrived it was so unbelievably salty that we could only eat a couple of bites. It literally made my tongue tingle from the salt. My husband said his filet was great and my lamb was okay. The risotto was wonderful except for one spot that was, again, so salty!? It was as though someone threw a tablespoon of salt on one spot. The manager came by and apologized for the wait and comped one of our entrees and offered comped desserts, which was very kind and appreciated. However, the food was hit or miss and subpar for the reputation and price tag of a Jeff Ruby's. Maybe it was an off night? We won't be back.

Food and service as good as always which you’d expect for $70 steaks plus $13 salad and $12 sides. Piano music was a little loud considering we were in back of restaurant. Still best steaks in Louisville!

It was pretty much what I expected...a steakhouse "institution". 1970s design, overpriced menu items, and mediocre quality. The shrimp cocktail ($24 for 3!) was flavorless and the shrimp were actually dry...but there was extra horseradish in the cocktail sauce to make up for it. The lobster and steak sushi roll was overwhelmed by the steak...basically some steak on rice with a steak sauce. And the steak, a bone-in ribeye, was flavorless save for the burnt butter. The wine list was overpriced for the wines that were available, and two of the bottles we tried to order apparently couldn't be found in the cellar. It's one of those places you go to be "seen" as opposed to go for a quality meal.
