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.

    The food was delicious and our servers, Daryl & Chris, were excellent. The one complaint we had was we ordered cocktails before dinner and they were watered down, hard to taste the Vodka.

    What an amazing experience! My childhood friend and I were there celebrating our 60th birthdays together and a friend recommended Jeff Rubys. Adrienne was our server and we could not have asked for greater attention. I have a gluten and soy sensitivity, they catered to my needs and still provided the most amazing food and cocktails. We will definitely go back when in Louisville again.

    The management was too consumed with dealing with a celebrity that was eating there. They failed to perform adequate service to the other people dining at the same time as the celebrity. The food was good, but the service was so bad, it ruined our evening. It’s a real shame, and truly unprofessional that a restaurant of this quality could perform at such a low level. I will never return to that location, and may even write a letter to Mr. Ruby himself.

    On vacation with my cousin and her husband. We decided to make reservations for one night of our trip for a special meal- this was definitely wonderful. Then service was outstanding as was the food. WE wish we wold have had room for dessert. My husband and I could have split a dinner, but we took leftovers home and it will make its way back to Wisconsin in our cooler for dinner tomorrow night. thanks!

    Wonderful Miami roll to start. Freddie salad was good, not great. Expected bowl to be chilled thus salad was not as cold as I prefer. Petite filet was perfectly cooked and delicious. Halibut for my spouse was fine but nothing unique. Overall still pleased yet believe it can be even better. Will give it another try.

    The food and drinks were great as they always are, but smaller portions for much more in price. Would've normally been offered a dessert to split for the special occasion, but none was offered on this visit. The service was okay, not that friendly. Seemed to be spread too thin. Probably won't go back too soon.

Such a treat to have my mom pampered with a dessert of her choice for her 75th birthday! Top notch dining experience, as always.

    I know prices have risen everywhere in the last year and it has become very challenging to pay higher wages to attract quality people, but the price at Ruby's seems to have risen much higher than when I ate there a year ago. Malone's offers comparable quality for a lower price all in. Service is better at Ruby's and atmosphere is better.

    If your open to the price tag (which is beyond worth it) then go. This is the best Jeff Rubys service and food wise I’ve ever been to. Our server was personable and funny, the food was the best I’ve ever had anywhere, and the location is absolutely stunning. Right on the river connected to the historic Galt House you get the absolute most bang for your buck. The birthday deserts they brought out for us were devine:) I’ll definitely be coming back to this restaurant anytime I get the chance. PS the steaks, crab, and lobster are so so so delicious:)

    The service was outstanding. We were celebrating my grandmother’s 90th birthday and they made her feel like a queen for the day. They were beyond attentive and invested in her having a great dining experience. Our waitress Adrienne was an absolute joy to get to know and went above and beyond. The musical talent, Robbie, was so gracious and sang happy birthday. Jeff Ruby’s is always great food and excellent service but this experience took that up a notch. We are so grateful.
