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 have never had a subpar meal at Jeff Ruby’s and this was no exception. We ordered from the raw bar and had the 2 for $99 special. It was AMAZING.

Every detail about s spot on and all personnel from valet to hostess to wait staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.

We dined here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The restaurant itself is stunning. I thoroughly enjoyed the decor. Our booth table was perfect for our special occasion. The service was fantastic. Brittnee, Colin and Jill were wonderful and provided us with a truly wonderful evening. The food was amazing. My steak melted in my mouth. Some of the best oysters Rockefeller I have ever had. My creme brûlée was fantastic. Truly wonderful evening.

Ambiance seems to be the biggest focus. Really cool vibe. Cool bar area. Servers took fantastic care of us. Felt like a valued guest. Neat memorabilia to look at too.

For a steakhouse was really not impressed by the steak. Got the dry aged bone in strip. Hard to judge with just one trip but really nothing special. Also had the sushi. $24 for 8 pieces of sushi, you have high expectations. It was just OK. No different than any sushi place in a strip mall. However, the sides were fantastic. Mac n Cheese and Brussel sprouts were great. Also highly recommend the homemade ice cream.

We were seated in a quiet dining room reminiscent of an Old English study with a fireplace, where horse and jocky portraits lined the walls. Our server John, was very helpful in helping us make our selections. He was knowledgeable and attentive as was his assistant Grant. We did not have to ask for anything. The food was fantastic. Perfectly prepared. What a treat!

Excellent atmosphere, food, and service. A bit pricey compared to the average high end steakhouse, but in this case it's well worth it. Will be back!

As always the experience was pleasant.The staff was friendly and personable.I will blame this next criticism on Covid 19.It seemed the they were under staffed.Although everyone seemed to be working diligently to make the experience positive.I waited 20 minutes for someone to check on us for ordering our 2nd cocktail.My wife ordered a salad and decided on the oysters.30 minutes after ordering we received our order.We had a late reservation 8:30 pm.it was 9:30 before we received our 1st course.We plan on returning as we have always had a great time.My son likes to go to Jeff Ruby’s for his birthday.

Great atmosphere and service. The food was just average. I have had many steaks that are better, and expected much better for a top notch steakhouse. Creme Brûlée’ was not crispy on top and the sugar was not torched well.

We had arrived a tad bit early and was allowed to be seated anyways. The room we were seated in only had five tables and they were spread far enough apart that your conversation could not be overheard by others. You cannot hear the live entertainment but that's not what we were there for. The food and the service was spectacular. The overall experience was perfect for the perfect night out for a couple.

We went for our anniversary and were very satisfied with the experience. Our waiter was excellent as was everyone that we had contact with, from the valet to greeters. We felt very special even though it was derby day and quite busy! We had the salmon and the steak, both were our first experience with dry rubs. The salmon was delicious but, as a warning, the seasoning is very strong. The salad had a bit much balsamic dressing for us but was better than any salad we have had at other steakhouses. Overall a great time on our special day!
