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.

Although expensive, the steak was excellent and the Mac and cheese was out of this world. Service was on another level compared to other restaurants.

Food was delicious. Waitress was good but not personable. Wanted us in and out. When I’m spending a lot of money for dinner, I like to experience it and not be rushed.

Not super crazy about the table selection it’s a 1/2 bench 1/2 high chair table but our server was spot on and very prompt. If been here several times and other JR locations we were all very happy, even with the table issues

First time visitor - went there for my wife's 55th birthday. The food was VERY good. Everything tasted great. Service was a bit sketchy at first. It took a few minutes after sitting down to get a water, and then longer to get our drink order. This surprised me given the reputation of the restaurant. After that, the service was very good.

Quite pricy. For only three of us, our bill was $425+tip. We each had two alcoholic beverages, one appetizer split by three of us, three entrees with one side each, and two desserts. This is a basic meal without going too overboard.

Value? I don't think so. I can honestly say I could have gone to Texas Roadhouse with food that is very similar and the cost would have been a fraction of what we paid.

I give this a 4-star rating as it was a great night with great food and good service. But, I could not recommend this to a friend unless they had money to burn. I'd rather suggest they eat a comparable meal at their favorite steakhouse and save themselves $300.

John provided excellent service ensuring our dining experience was outstanding. His assistant Joshua was equally attentive. The manager Christian stopped by for a chat to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Looking forward to dining at Ruby’s again in the near future.

Fabulous food and impeccable service. The tiger shrimp were perfectly cooked, with that spicy cocktail sauce, great! My steak was more rare than I like. I order medium, but the center was red. My husband likes it that way so I ate the cooked outer portion and he ate the inside. Had the strawberry shortcake for dessert and it was great, and unusual. It was homemade strawberry icecream, a large frozen mound of it, rolled in shortcake all around, with whipped cream on top. Looked unusual but when you ate it, it tasted just like strawberry shorcake...even though you can't see the cake! Yum! Always a good meal!

Jeff Ruby’s has been consistently one of our favorite “special occasion” restaurants. Unfortunately, COVID put a stop to all restaurant-going in our family. So our first visit to Jeff Ruby’s after more than a year and a half, we were a bit concerned to see if the Jeff Ruby experience had made it through the quarantine times with the ability to hold on to that quality dining experience. Well the answer is yes, Jeff Ruby’s served excellent appetizers, salads, main courses from steak to fish and lobster, and drinks and dessert. Our serving staff was polite, fast, business-like, but Kentucky friendly. If I were Jeff Ruby himself, I would be very pleased with the crew I’ve entrusted my name to.

The service from our server was excellent and the restaurant is beautiful, but the food, with the exception of the steak and bread, was awful. I was served two oysters that were bad and the manager seemed to doubt me. I believe if the raw bar would have made more of an effort to disconnect the oyster from the shell they would have felt the bad oyster and certainly could have smelled it if not for the mask. Also, the salad was overdressed and soggy as though it was sitting in a warm kitchen. Overall, I expected so much more.

Loved the food, waiter was outstanding. Disappointed with a couple of our side dish choices. But overall this is the go to date night spot for me and my wife. Hands down best steakhouse in Kentucky. I ordered the Sea Bass instead of my usual steak. I was not disappointed! We will return again and again!

Our Server, Brittany, was attentive and anticipated our needs.
We asked for our Salmon to be well done: it was cooked just the way we like it.

I always have a great experience at Jeff Ruby's. The only criticism I might have was I ordered mashed potatoes and they were just OK. Also ordered the chocolate cake and it was just OK, The fries were just OK. The chicken was fantastic and the steak was perfect.
