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.

I had the petite filet mignon and it was full of flavor and melt in your mouth delicious. We also had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was superb. Look forward to dining there again in the future.

This was our first Jeff Ruby experience in Louisville and it was just as wonderful as the Nashville and Cincinnati locations. Even in the midst of COVID, we were able to "step away" from worry and relax while enjoying a meal out. Our food was remarkable, our service was incredible, our waitress was a dream come true; if only I could remember her name.
Without a doubt we would recommend Jeff Ruby, Louisville! We will be back next year to celebrate our anniversary again!

This restaurant was very nice and lived up to its reputation of being one of the best! Although the steak was very good, it was not the best steak that I have ever had, especially considering the price of it

It was our Anniversary and this is the ONLY restaurant in Louisville we want to be on our special day! Everything is always fabulous. I always love the filet! Ambiance is tops in the entire state and a wonderful place to dine for special occasions or simply a regular day at a great establishment that checks all the boxes.

Perfect food and service. Only complaint which is minor, is I ordered a dessert to go and the portion was very small and was missing the berries. Other than that food was amazing.

Pros:The restaurant is very entertaining to look at. They had delightful live singer. The noise level was appropriate. Although they are observing COVID procedures, it didn't feel like a medical ward/warzone. We received top notch service. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The sourdough bread they serve is amazing! We got a couple sushi rolls. They were good. My husband liked his dry aged steak. He particularly loved the seasoning and seared outside. My kids got burgers, fries and fruit. They liked the burgers, the fries were crispy. The fruits were a fresh assortment of berries.

Cons: I wanted to order the salmon but didn't want the risotto and artichokes that it is served on. I would've preferred asparagus, green beans, or small salad. None of which come with the salmon.

(You can get a separate family size order of sides)

I ordered the chicken milanese. It was over salted and rubbery. Very difficult to cut even with a steak knife. Doing so, sent a cherry tomato flying off my plate. The lemon butter sauce tasted like salty movie theater butter & had a plastic-like look to it (like frosting). I thought it was disappointing that a $30 (peice of chicken) dish didn't include a side. My dish and options were disappointing.

Overall, it was a good experience. I expected to have our socks knocked off and it didn't happen. It was quite pricy to not like my entree and menu options. I think there is better food elsewhere. I'm glad we went. It was a fun experience. A little over-hyped and overpriced. I would pick elsewhere.

We haven't been out to a nice restaurant since COVID hit...and it was such a great treat. We felt very safe and everyone had a mask on. Tables were spaced nicely and it was a relaxing evening. The food was the normal outstanding taste and quality - quantity too!! Thank you Jeff Ruby's for the wonderful evening!!
