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, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake are all staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930s & '40s, 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 are featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32-foot wall of wine.

I’ve been to just about all the famous steak places from New York to Chicago to Kansas City to Vegas and LA. Never found one better than Jeff Ruby’s.

We had the sweetest waitress and waiter or assistance in the bar area; they took care of everything for us. We didn’t even have to ask for anything , they knew exactly what we need it when we need it great service!! The food is always amazing! We tried the sushi for the first time The Godfather was delish!!

At the time reservations were made, the only seating available was "bar seating". We made the reservation. When we arrived, we asked if there was a table available and the hostess was extremely cordial and directed us to a nice table. We had the special and it was outstanding. The lobster tail was cooked to perfection. The filet was perfect. The asparagus and mashed potatoes were good. We ordered two crab legs (steamed) for an appetizer and they were excellent. The only issue was that when we received the legs, each leg was really only half of a leg. Overall, the experience was great and we fully intend to go back again and again. We will bring our son with us next time.

Ordered our entrees and my steak came out medium well as I ordered it medium rare. I had to wait,obviously, to get my steak re cooked as everyone else ate. By the time mine came back out, it was still medium at best, and all the other food was cold. No discount was offered, or any sort of inconvenience fee. I expect this to happen at Texas Roadhouse. Not at Jeff Ruby’s. Very disappointed.

Was great I just didn't like being under the vent where my wife felt so cold. Besides that it was 100% amazing. I brought my close friend and his wife with us. Def went all out on us for this dinner. They were pleased as well. Can't wait to come again next year.

AS ALWAYS....Jeff Ruby’s is the restaurant to beat in the Louisville Metro area. Never a hiccup with food or service and always excellent! Eric was our waiter again and works very hard to make sure every visit is special. We’ll be back soon!

I’ll start with the positives. The atmosphere was absolutely incredible. Beautiful inside, nice lighting. Loved that. Also the bread and butter they bring to the table when you first arrive is marvelous.
Service was not as good as a chain restaurant like Texas Roadhouse. We ordered an appetizer that never came. I ordered a lemonade for my daughter that arrived well after we had started eating (I had to remind the waiter) and I was still charged $3.50 for it. The temperature of my daughters steak was Luke warm. My chicken dish was meh. A little overcooked. For the high prices I guess I just expected to be wowed by the entree and the service. Probably not going back.

This was our first visit to Jeff Ruby’s . Very nice gentleman met us at valet and started the evening off very pleasant. The hosts were very welcoming and sat us at a lovely table. We had a wonderful young lady Aderine take care of us. She was excellent. Best service ever. The food and atmosphere was amazing. The GM introduced himself and gave us his card. Was just a very nice evening out. It felt special being taking care of that way. Will definitely be going back.

This is the first in-restaurant dining experience we've had since Covid-19 began. Instead, lots of dinner takeout kits, which we LOVE! So nice to be back in the restaurant, and it was excellent as always. Karen, our server, was equally fantastic!! Thanks for the much needed date night experience!!

Overall, a nice experience. We were celebrating a birthday and Valentine’s Day. A plate of sweets was presented, to the table, for the birthday celebration. Service was good. Excellent ambiance. Steak was excellent. Baked potato was starchy.. probably had been sitting for a while before serving. The Grouper was a bit dry. Cocktails were excellent. Oysters Rockefeller was superb.

The service, food, atmosphere all excellent. I'm a big guy and it was a tight fit in their half booths, they we're accommodating and moved us to a square table immediately. Enjoyed all aspects including the valet parking which is $10 now plus tip, but still worth it.

Dined on 2/6. Arrived on time for reservation for 4. Had to wait to be seated. Found service to be slow. My steak was barely warm was delivered. Expect more out of Jeff Ruby's. Is it too much to ask to get a hot steak?

Very disappointed to see the dry aged bone=in ribeye has been replaced with wet aged beef. This has been my go-to item for years. I urge you to please return to the menu. Service was outstanding as always.

The food was delicious, server was friendly and attentive. Tables social distanced. Only negative is, we went for a relaxing, take your time dinner and the courses came out too quickly. We had cocktails, appetizer, dinner and dessert in less than an hour and a half. If I’m spending a couple hundred dollars on dinner, I’d like it to last a bit longer. Next time we will let them know we want to take our time.

The food was excellent. Service was excellent. It was my first time dining at Jeff Ruby’s and I was very impressed. I was slightly disappointed because I went to celebrate my 24th birthday, upon confirming our reservation they asked if we were celebrating anything and we let them know it was for my birthday. I know not all restaurants do complementary birthday deserts but a friend of mine who goes every year for his birthday says that they usually do. Maybe whoever confirmed our reservation forgot to relay the message. However, I still had a great dinner and very much enjoyed the atmosphere! We ordered the ruby sushi roll that was recommended by our waitress and it was outstanding! I ordered the Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection and my fiancé ordered the ribeye which was also packed with flavor! The sides are big enough for two to share, so we decided on the mashed potatoes!! We will be returning!
