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.

We went to Jeff Ruby’s for my birthday celebration. It’s one of my favorite places to celebrate. The service was impeccable, the drinks, salad and sides were fabulous!!!! My only disappointment was with my steak. My husband and I split the blackened ribeye as we always do, and it was not tender at all. It was cooked correctly-medium rare- but very difficult to chew.

Recently relocating to Louisville from New Orleans, one of the culinary capitals of the world, my expectations were probably a little too high going into this place for the first time. I made dinner reservations to celebrate my wife’s 30th birthday- I made to sure to note in the reservation details. While we did have a nice booth seating, her birthday was hardly acknowledged at all. I say this in comparison to Fleming’s Steakhouse in New Orleans where I took her last year for her birthday, and they had fresh rose petals on the table, a single rose (real!) in a crystal vase, a birthday card signed by the staff, a complimentary candlelit meatball appetizer, as well as a complimentary crème brûlée dessert with ‘happy birthday’ written in chocolate, and to top it off, every single staff member that passed by wished her a happy birthday, it’s important to note that I didn’t ask for ANY of this btw, I made the reservation online the same as I did for Jeff Ruby’s. Aside from the guest service not meeting my expectation given the occasion, I had to send my $96 ribeye back to the kitchen because it was raw in the center when it should have been cooked medium. I instead asked for a large lobster tail to prevent being further disappointed because not only was the steak undercooked, it simply had no taste. The lobster tail was good, and my wife enjoyed her petite filet (which was cooked a perfect medium), I also ordered the lobster bisque that was very good. Our server Josh was great a guy, great personality, kept us laughing and did an excellent job explaining the menu. The atmosphere is nice, but having experienced many different levels of fine dining, we just didn’t get the bang for our buck and will probably not visit again. In my honest opinion, there is not much that justifies the menu prices. We enjoyed Ruth’s Chris just as much for more than $100 less the week before.

As expected, great overall experience. Highly recommended! The only surprising thing to us was how many families with children were there considering the cost of the restaurant, it that may be due to a conference at the Galt House.
