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.

Nieces birthday celebration was outstanding ! She’s from SC and is in for Thanksgiving. Her comments: even the butter is good! Even the water is good! Never had a steak that literally melts into you mouth!

My son requested that we go to Jeff Ruby's for his birthday. I'm so glad we decided to try it. What a beautiful and fun place. The ambiance is perfect, managing to be both modern and traditional in decor. There was a pianist that added to the atmosphere. The service was attentive and the server was able to describe the options, taking extra care in helping us to order the perfectly cooked steak for our taste. They even had both medium and medium plus options and he described these well. The food was incredible. Overall, a very nice meal with great food. Neither the food nor the service were fussy, despite being high end. I was glad to see a lot of families, as I had wondered if the restaurant might mainly be filled with people attending conventions. Pricey, but did not feel overpriced. Family sized sides were particularly well priced.

I had the steak medium well and it was indeed cooked to perfection. I always enjoy myself and my waiter Donnie took it a step up and made my experience even better with his attentiveness and friendly service.

I had the Blackened Ribeye and it tasted really good. It was a small step up from what is server at Texas Roadhouse. I also had an average baked potatoe and some kind of vegetable that looked like a cross between an asparagus and brockli. It had absolutly no flavor.

Server Chad was excellent as were other team members. I think the front entrance is a bit tired and needs some updating. Food was above average but can’t give it five stars. Not a great value. With a restaurant like this you’re partly paying for performance of the service team and ambiance so expect to pay more. Dress code is whatever goes definitely not business casual which I guess is just a statement on the times. It sorry we went but if returning to Louisville I think I’d pick a different place next time.

The half Freddie salad was a great portion before jumping into our entrees. My petite filet & my husbands barrel cut filet were both cooked to perfection & neither of us left an ounce!

Excellent food. Was in the mood for sushi so got the Ruby roll, excellent but the bit of beef in it overpowered everything which kinda defeats the purpose of good sushi where the flavors each get a chance to pop.

UPDATE to add… The manager Tony went above and beyond after our experience and sent gift cards to make up for our experience.

Jeff Ruby’s need to renovate this restaurant. It was disgusting. The bathrooms were dirty and old! The music in the bar area was so loud you couldn’t even talk to the people at our table. The table we got sat at was a
Booth with bar stools on one side… so half the group was sitting above the rest of us. I have been to other Jeff Ruby locations and this is by far the worst.

Our food was delicious and the spicy margaritas were the best I’ve had! Brittany was our server and she was fantastic! Very friendly and made sure that everything came to the table with perfect timing. We were having a rare night out without kids and she made sure that we had time to relax and enjoy everything. This is one of our very favorite restaurants and we can’t wait to come back!
