Steak
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.

We went for our one year anniversary because we had tried on our first date and they were too busy. Our experience was absolutely amazing! Paul and all the servers were amazing! You can really tell that everyone is healed to high standards and love what they do... the manager came and politely asked if we could possibly move tables to accommodate a larger party which was perfectly fine and we moved, but the managers still made it a point to show how appreciative he was for that. So anyway the important part, Oysters Rockefeller, burger, filet mignon, Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, hash browns, butter pie, you name it we had it and everything was fantastic! Definitely suggest it for special occasions and we will be returning!

I have been to Jeff Ruby’s many times and it has always been incredible. And as always the food was outstanding. Everything was perfect except John, our waiter. Perhaps he was having a bad day, but his adatuide seens more suited for a prison guard than a waiter at Louisville’s finest steakhouse.

Always special to go to JR. Its high on my celebration locations. It satisfies my vegetarian palate and my husband carnivore needs. The service makes it outstanding. But ...it is not intimate dining ambiance ....tables are closely located to each other where waiters and patrons have to wait their turns to walk around the tables ....and the noise level is high with loud competing conversations and the loud singing pianist. And caution ....the wood floors are slick as I near fell wearing my dress shoes.

We were there to celebrate my daughters 21st bday and then go to the UL game. We had 2 1/2 hours before the game. Sat down right away with all the decorations set up as I had asked. Took the waiter 30 min to get us a menu. 3 out of 5 of us ordered a salad that never came. They did apologize and gave us a credit on the final bill. The waiter may have had too many tables to take care if as we barely saw him during the meal. Had to ask another waiter to pls get our bill so we could get out of there and over to the game. I love Jeff Ruby’s but last night wasn’t up to the quality service they are so known for.

I wasn't sure of your noise rating. I didn't find the noise level bothersome at all although we had a 8:30pm dining time. My colleague has been coming to the National Farm Machinery Show & Tractor Pull for 20 years and never been to Jeff Ruby's before. His dining experience on Monday night became one of his highlights over the past 20 years. The meal was amazing. Thank you.

You can’t beat a Jeff ruby steak! We came to the restaurant for an anniversary date, and the staff went above and beyond in service, and the food was amazing. We had sushi for an appetizer, a beer, a wine, and the New York strip and filet mignon.
It is pricey, not an everyday thing for us, but with a gift card and a special occasion to celebrate it made for the perfect setting—even on a Monday night. Reserve early! They seem to book up quick.

The perfect restaurant to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. All the staff was very attentive and professional to make our evening special. We enjoyed the melt in your mouth filet mignon and each of us ordered a different side to share. The table favorite side was the brussels sprouts.

Jeff Ruby's has such an elegant atmosphere that transforms you to a feeling of being in NYC.
They do everything right!

Collin and Stephen were amazing! When we were brought our food one of our guest in the party received a steak that wasn’t cooked to her exact order we notified Stephen who then retrieved one of the managers to get the steak. They simply asked how it was to be cooked and then took it straight back and brought her a new steak cooked exactly as she asked.
They were kind and polite about the situation.
None of us had ever been and Collin and Stephen welcomed us and informed of us of the specials and answered any question we had.

We were in the bar area. Robbie Bartlett was the night’s entertainment. She’s brilliant.

Our server was new, but superb.

The cocktails were timely and on point.

Our entrees were perfectly cooked.

We love Ruby’s.

We had an early Valentine Celebration before going to a play at Actor's Theatre. We had a reservation in the bar--we usually eat in the dining room. We loved the atmosphere, the service was impeccable, and the food totally delicious. We were served in a way that felt leisurely and relaxed--and were out in ample time to get to the theatre for a 7:30 pm play. Always a great place to celebrate special moments in one's life--47 years Valentine Celebrations.

Problem: Had a $77 porterhouse @ 24 oz which was tough and full of grissle. This was a very overpriced steak which was NOT outstanding quality as expected. This was an anniversary dinner that did not go well. We usually go to Ruth’s Chris but heard so many great things about Jeff Ruby’s; needless to say we will continue the tradition at Ruths Chris where we have not had a less than outstanding meal yet.

We had dinner Monday night for the Cher concert. We had such an amazing experience. The waiter Bryan was so kind and knowledgeable, he walked us through the steaks and all his recommendations were spot on. Manager is a very friendly young man, and all over the restaurant making sure everything was running smoothly, and boy was it. Thank you to your entire staff
