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.

    My drink was empty most of the night . I had unsweetened tea and water . My water glass had no ice and I had asked for extra ice which I never received. My sushi was served and I had to use my bread plate to place it on . It is hard to just use the soy container . My steak was medium well and had no pink center . I had ask for lobster and asparagus on top of my steak and I removed a shell about an inch in length . I was never asked if my steak was ok . Multiple empty dishes were left on my table . My server was very kind but it was busy and it was just not the service I expected for the price . I will return because everyone can have an off night !

    Hopefully the manager Chris and/or Tony sees this review. We came in for my birthday with my father and two sisters. I frequent Jeff Ruby’s often and to say that Matthew put on a clinic on great service, hospitality, and adding his own touch of personality to make this a unique and personable experience would be an understatement. From this point forward, every reservation made here will be with Matthew until he gets tired of us.

    Jeff Ruby’s L’Ville is the best dining experience one can find. Professional wait staff-headlined by Matthew, was a pleasure to spend the evening with. His recommendations, humor, and hustle over indulged our foursome. Sushi-awesome, drinks-awesome, steaks-every bite was great. Do yourself a favor, BUTTER PIE yourself. Simply fantastic.

    This business is well run operation from getting your reservation to walking out with your leftovers in a souvenir bag. Located directly in downtown, affordable valet service, fantastic interior, impeccable service, and amazing food makes this place one of the favorite location for special occasions. Book early (months ahead) if you’d like to dine Fr-Sun. Even Thursdays are busy. Don’t miss on trying the freshly baked sourdough bread and truffle butter. Colossal shrimps are truly large. Scallops were great! Amazing choices for tuna and steaks. Sides are shareable. Butter pie is a must-try, at least once :)

    Kyle and Kylie were great! The food was amazing! Drinks were great. The only thing that we did not love was the table of about 7 in front of us. They were VERY loud and rowdy. We were celebrating our anniversary and my birthday. Their super loudness took a lot away from the ambiance, and really caused us to leave earlier than we would have.

    The waiter was really rushing us - practically grabbing glasses and plates out of my hand. I finally gave up on my $$$$ mashed potatoes. I really wanted to finish them but he was determjned to take them away. Everything was great except for this ongoing pressure to clear the table. At this price point, we should be allowed to linger a bit.

    The staff did an excellent job with service to our table. Elexius was very thorough with the details of the menu. Shoutout to the General Manager Tony. He recognized my wife was having a problem with her lobster tails before I did! He immediately stepped in and cut them off the shell for her. While at the table he went above and beyond with my meal as well making sure I was satisfied and I truly appreciate the great customer service. We have been to a lot of nice steakhouses but we come to Jeff Ruby’s at least twice a year for the great food and service that you guys provide… THANKS!

    Nic did a great job as our server last night. He brief us on all the specials and really provided the great service you would expect at a restaurant of that level. The food was great! The steaks are out of this world and the grilled asparagus is one of my favorites. What you cannot eat they box up and you take it home.

    We had the bourbon fillet. It came with shrimp that had just a tad of bourbon flavor. The steak was not bourbon flavored and that is what we were hoping for. Our entrees were perfect. As always the service was five star. The atmosphere is roughly the same as it was before the recent renovation.

    We sat in the red drape room. The room was full of people but very quiet. The cowboy 22oz ribeye was amazing. I spoke to the manager about how they cook their steaks as they are very moist, and tender and the seasoning they use is great. Darrell was our waiter and Chris was our assistant waiter. They were friendly, helpful and very professional. I unknowingly left my credit card in the payment sleeve at the restaurant. I would like to personally thank Darrell as he ran down the road to the Galt house to give me my credit card. The food was great, the place is really nice, and the service is second to none. I highly recommend Jeff Rubys and again, Darrell thanks so much for taking good care of our party.

    It was our son’s first visit and he was awed! Surf and turf was delicious. I had the Burrow steak topping ( and I’m a diehard Chiefs fan lol) the Cajun crawfish cream was outstanding. Had some fun and ordered the cocktail It’s Britney Spritz - soooo good! To finish the evening we ordered the Air Ruby and you have got to see it to believe it-absolute perfect Air Jordan designed dessert, fabulous flavor as well. Service was superb and the ambiance was excellent.
