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.

Fun atmosphere and lots of energy. Server Tyler and his assistant Hannah were knowledgeable and fun. The decor of the restaurant has an Art Deco feel, really enjoyed all the character and attention to detail. Next time I go I would likely make a reservation in the bar area to be closer to the piano player.

Food was absolutely outstanding! Our server, Colin, was so knowledgeable, kind, and attentive to every need. We came to celebrate multiple milestones and were lucky to do it with Colin and the Jeff Ruby’s team.

We were in town visiting our son and daughter-in-law. We were greeted by a very sweet girl named Alex. Our main server was somewhat ignoring us. Let’s say he was hard to find when we needed something. Then very apologetic the last ten minutes, so he bought our dessert. I asked for a beer and he brought it to our table and put it down while looking elsewhere. After I asked for a glass when I found him, a different man, possibly manager, brought the glass, poured it and he joked “‘I’ll take the evidence”. The food was excellent. When my steak was brought out it was placed down so quickly, I thought the bloody juice was going to spill over on me. I ordered barrel filet mignon medium well butterflied. I have always talked to everyone how good your restaurants are in every aspect. I assume it was just a very busy night. I don’t want anyone to get in trouble.
Overall, we were all very pleased. Thank you for the follow up on our experience.

Service couldn't have been better. My girlfriend really enjoyed her steak and the desert. My chicken was dry and not very good. Overall it all seemed extremely over priced for what you received but the service was excellent from the time we walked in the door until the time we left.

We had dinner with friends. Our first time to this restaurant. I must admit that this review is a bit difficult to summarize. First, the food is the best we have had in Louisville. Steaks and scallops were fabulous. Additionally, the sides of hash browns, mushrooms and Brussels sprouts were really great. However, my wife is visually impaired and needs a lot of light in order to see. My Open Table reservation always states that fact. When i approached the receptionist on arrival at the restaurant i repeated this requirement. She ignored my request. She led us trough the restaurant, passing several booths that were available and very well lit, and eventually seated us in a dark corner. When i asked for a different table, she informed me that this was the only available table. Looking around i could see at least 10 open tables. It was extremely disappointing that my wife had to sit in the darkened area where she couldn’t enjoy the meal. I find this very disappointing.

Lively, fun atmosphere. January was an exceptional, personable waitress. Chris was a superb, attentive manager. Food variety and quality was top notch.

West coast oysters, diver scallops, lobster Mac n cheese, steak and crab cakes were all had (along with Brussels sprout and mashed potato side) and thoroughly enjoyed by our party members.

Definitely worth visiting, and highly recommended!

Server was very prompt but most of our food was just luke warm at best. Steak tasted good but was not very warm. Crab bisque was borderline cold. Brussel sprouts were under cooked , very tough and cold. Wedge salad was really the only descent thing we ate. Tried to get the attention of a manager before we left but just decided not to go back. When you pay that kind of money for a meal it should be lots better than that.

I booked this reservation a few months in advance to celebrate our anniversary. Although we were running a few minutes behind, be reservation staff was courteous and flexible. We were seated quickly. All staff, and especially our lead waiter, Jon, Work friendly, attentive and professional. The food was prepared just as we ordered and at the highest level of excellence as one would expect of a restaurant of this caliber. Cannot wait to return

We wanted to have a nice steak dinner while in Louisville. Since having gone to a few others in different cities, we looked at reviews for Jeff Ruby’s and decided to make a reservation and give it a try. Arrived a little ahead of reservation and got seated shortly after the time. Waite Nick was awesome and took very good care of us. Place was packed and a little loud due to a show that evening. However, as the night moved forward, the live piano player entertained the guest while enjoying dinner/drinks. Chris (Manager) stooped by twice to ensure we were happy and we enjoyed our time there. Be prepared to spend a little but should be glad you did.

The term Jeff Ruby's experience is so true - it's the best sushi, steak and seafood all under one roof. The filet & diver scallops are our favorite, and Mac & Cheese. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday which they made very special.

You just can’t beat the Jeff Ruby’s experience. I’ve been to every location and each one outdoes the previous. Loved the bar stage with live music and those bartenders make a mean manhattan.
