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 dined at Jeff Ruby’s before attending a musical close by. Simone, our server, was great. She was considerate of our show time and very courteous. The food, drinks, and atmosphere was phenomenal. 5 stars across the board!

This was my second visit. My NY Strip was ordered medium and finally arrived deeply charred. We were heading to the theater and I didn’t have time for them to prepare another, not that they asked if that is what I wanted them to do. Disappointed in the cooking and the toughness of my steak.

Our server was excellent! My husband ordered his steak medium and it came out medium well. But he still enjoyed it. We were limited on time so he didn’t send back. My steak was ordered medium and cooked perfectly.

We have been coming to Jeff Ruby’s for several years to celebrate our anniversary along with another couple. All four of us have never been disappointed- the service and food have ALWAYS been excellent. The smiling welcoming hostesses to the complimentary desserts have made us feel like we are very special. Thank you to the restaurant and staff.

My daughter and I had dinner on Tuesday night early (5:30pm). After dinner we were headed to the theater to see Hamilton. We were seated promptly and let our server know we were headed to the theater and that the show was starting at 7:30. Our service was prompt and efficient. The food was delicious and wonderfully prepared. It was all excellent! We had desert. We were on our way to the theater and arrived in plenty of time. It was a great experience. Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse is always a wonderful experience both in Louisville and Cincinnati. I highly recommended them.

We recently dined at Jeff Ruby's for a date night. Our service was very good, but not necessarily stellar, as there were a couple of serving gaffes and somewhat limited knowledge of the wine menu. The food was exceptional, however, from the tuna poke appetizer to the cocktails, to the extremely well-seasoned aged New York strip steak that we split. The brussels sprout side dish with bacon and maple was outstanding, and the grilled asparagus was excellent as well. A bottle of Nickel and Nickel C. C. Ranch cabernet was a great complement to the steak. We finished with a chocolate lava cake. A fairly talented band was playing in the bar area that night and provider some nice background accompaniment to our restaurant experience.

Jeff Ruby’s always lives up to it’s name. We went this past Friday night to celebrate our 23 wedding anniversary. The entire staff was fantastic from the moment we walked through the door. Our waiter, Zack, totally made our evening. He was so pleasant, personable and efficient. Watching your staff operate throughout the evening was like watching a well-oiled machine. Everyone knew their job and happily did their jobs; pleasantly interacting with each other and the guests. We will always choose to dine at Jeff Ruby’s for our special occasions!!! Thank you for the most memorable evening!!!!!

Sides were great and entrees lacked flavor. They tasted ok. Maybe it was an off night, when you are paying that much for a steak, it should be worth it.

I had the beet salad with petit filet mignon with a side of Wagyu. The presentation was straightforward and well cooked. My only negative comments would be that the butter used to finish the steak had a tad too much salt (but perhaps that's my own preference) that perhaps would've been better used to add some more flavor to the yellow beets in the salad. Compared to other top-level steakhouses, I would definitely recommend Jeff Ruby's and felt it was a more intimate experience than what you'd get at Ruth's or Morton's.

Celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary. Grant and Tyler were fantastic, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was wonderful.
My only negative was that we were not seated right away for our 530 reservation. While we were told to wait to the side, 3 other groups came in and were taken to their tables before us, and we were offered no explanation for the wait. That did not get our evening started off the way we would have liked.
Thankfully our servers quickly made us feel welcomed.

I wouldn’t even know where to begin, every visit to Ruby’s is better than the last! Our service team of Zach & Anthony were nothing short of perfection. Each course fresh and flavorful with ample portions.
My best advice would be to sample as much from the menu as possible. I normally try to fit in four courses but always end up with a bag to take home nonetheless. The jumbo crab cake and raw bar items are a great way to start and while all their salads are amazing keep in mind you can split/half a salad to make some room for later courses. The steak selection has something for everyone but note that if you’ve never had wagyu beef, you can add a medallion order of them to any item allowing you to try some of the finest beef available! Also, the Mac & Cheese is to die for, especially if you can add in some lobster!
AND SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT 😉

The service was outstanding, Andre and Alex were phenomenal. My wife’s steak was a little tough and the crab served with my daughters Chilean Sea Bass was very fishy. She had to remove it to enjoy the flavor of the sea bass which was very good. My son’s and my steak were very good.

All of our steaks were cooked incorrectly. They did take them back and put them back on the grill, however to have 4 steaks cooked wrong when you’re paying this kind of money is ridiculous. We were given a tray of 3 free desserts to make up for their error.

Unfortunately this visit did not measure up to our other visits as the service was lacking, no one checked to see how the steaks were and two of them were not cooked to order. Bryan was polite but not very attentive and the delivery was not what we were accustomed to receiving. Our water girl did the best job and was the reason there was a reasonable tip.
