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.

    Amazing as always, my go to restaurant for special occasions and celebrations. Was so glad we took my dad there for 60 bday, the manager made sure it was extra special with a dessert after dinner. Daisy our waitress along with her sidekick Luke was amazing, they gave us the full experience from sweeping the table to the hot towels after appetizers. Drinks never got below half point without being refilled. Thanks Jeff Ruby’s for making my dads birthday amazing!

    Overall great experience with food and service. Only complaint was both steaks were solid medium, not medium rare, which is what we ordered. We ate them anyway, as we weee tired and we weee the last seating of the night. Otherwise great atmosphere, outstanding service and delicious food. Extensive wine and liquor list. Would definitely dine here again but have to go 4 stars due to the overcooked steaks. Give this place a try if you’re in Louisville.

    As always everyone and everything was impressive. My lobster was tender and juicy and the steak was so good it made a Tuesday night delightful. Busier than expected but the piano music in the background was nice. I appreciated the friendly faces of those that have waited on me in the past that made sure to stop by and say Hi and the few new ones as well. I love this place.

    The steak was as phenomenal as I remembered years ago but for a place to be so expensive and pricey the sushi we had was unfortunately poor quality with hard chewy sushi rice and seaweed tasted old and rubbery and unpleasant and we left a roll almost uneaten. For the price of 22-28$ a roll then I would lower the price or take it off the menu entirely unfortunately if your going to be an upscale place and serve poor quality product then I’d just remove it.

    I’ve been here several times and the service is IMPECCABLE!!! The food, fortunately and unfortunately consistent……everything is consistently cooked perfectly, however most menu items have been consistently over seasoned. This particular instance we ordered the lobster gnocchi and the dish was so hammered with lemon and vinegar it completely blasted my palette. That being said, we sent it back, and the restaurant did not charge us for it, which I appreciated. But even my filet was so salty that I finished a quarter of it, but then brought the rest home to wipe it down and reheat in the oven. Maybe just a little bit of a lighter hand on the salt!

    This was our first experience at Jeff Ruby’s. We arrived on time but seating was delayed slightly. This gave us time to take in the atmosphere. The ambiance was very classic, the noise level was moderate. Once seated the wait staff was amazing! They reviewed all menus and took our drink orders. I had the Smoked Mango Old Fashion. One of the best cocktails I have had. No appetizer was ordered but we did get salads. The wedge salad was amazing. It came with a piece of bacon that was more like pork belly and man was it delicious! Several steaks were ordered as well as the burger! All were cooked perfectly and tasted amazing! Our favorite was the Filet! We ordered three sides, the Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, and the Lobster Mac & Cheese! Each was delicious but man that Lobster Mac & Cheese was the star of the show! I have tried this side at several other upscale steakhouses and this was the best by far. Overall Jeff Ruby’s exceeded our expectations on every level. Atmosphere, Drinks, Service, and Food! If you are near one of their locations and choose not to try it, no doubt you will have missed out on an excellent dining experience!
