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 creamed corn, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake will all be staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930's & 40's, 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 featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32 foot wall of wine.

We have dined at Jeff Ruby's many times, mostly for special occasions - anniversary, birthday and graduation. While it is a little pricey for us on a regular basis, it is well worth the special occasion experience. We had the same waiter, Grant, a couple of times. He's excellent in making sure everything is to our liking. Recently we celebrated my son's birthday. His steak wasn't quite cooked the way he preferred. It was not a problem at all and quickly taken care of without a hassle of any kind. We will be going back for our anniversary in March. Highly recommend, especially for special event. Excellent food and service!

I have been to Jeff Ruby’s in the past and was really blown away by the whole experience, so for my sons special birthday I wanted to gift him with this unique experience. While the wait staff was wonderful, very polite we were unfortunately seated next to a very “demanding” table and it was extremely busy. So overall not what I would describe as what a typical Jeff Ruby’s experience should be. I would definitely come back but I would try to pick a less busy time of year.

We absolutely love Jeff Ruby’s of Louisville. The atmosphere is wonderful. The staff are always very nice and will do anything they can to make your night special. Only issue with our last reservation was the crab legs. At $25 a piece I expect a certain quality that is usually found at Jeff Ruby’s. On this occasion though I ordered 4 legs and got 3 (claw) pieces out of the 4. As everyone knows the claws are a little less premium. They Have a stronger “fishy” taste and just less desirable then the legs. I think the problem was the table in the Churchill room ordered what appeared to be 75-100 legs for their table. Again $25 a piece 😬. I think they may of been running low on quanity which left the less desirable pieces for us. The steaks and sides were out of this world fantastic though. Highly recommend!

Our dinner was fabulous. The head server was excellent, but he told us he would get back with us on a wine he mentioned, but couldn’t remember the name. He never got back one way or the other. Usually, they do.

I really loved my food at Jeff Ruby’s but the thing I loved the most was the service. Our waiter and his assistant were absolutely wonderful. I would recommend Jeff Ruby’s based on this service alone. Our waiter answer all of our questions and helped us choose our meals for the evening. We never went without something to drink.

As always Ruby's was a great experience, being from Cincy I've been to a "few" of his restaurants. We have eaten at high end restaurants far and wide and "by far" Jeff Ruby's always is a pleasure. The food, absolutely delicious and not just the perfect steaks. The service is stellar, perfect in every way from friendly, attentive without aggravating and always on top of their game. If you want to impress a date, a business associate or "just because" you want the best meal in Louisville, Cincinnati or Nashville, Jeff's is your "go-to"!!!

This was our first visit. It was wonderful. We valet parked and were met with an umbrella because it was raining heavily. We were seated immediately. The server was outstanding. She made a couple of suggestions for appetizers. We ordered drinks that were marvelous. The sea bass was the best that I have ever had. The filet mignon was also very tasty. My wife told me that she wants to go back weekly. Not sure that I can afford that. Thanks for a super New Year's Eve.

Our dinner was mediocre at best. The sides were unimpressive and poorly executed. The timing of our courses was terrible. Food came out so fast that two people at our table had to scarf down their salads because the servers had already brought everyone else’s steaks. The dessert was too sweet. Overall would not return. A steak dinner should be an event - not a rush through Applebees. Unfortunately that was our experience.

Good steak, not great. Sides are supposed to be large “family” shareable, but are maybe enough for two. The atmosphere I guess is supposed to be an attempt at “Art Deco” but seems oddly eclectic, dirty, and run down feeling. We had an attentive wait staff, professional, but not friendly. We had 4 young teenagers with us that seemed to perturb the waitress and some of the staff. You could visibly see the waitress’ mood change when we decided to split a couple of the meals which made me feel as if we were not going to be good high paying customers, even though our ticket/check came to over $325.00 with a generous tip.

Slight wait for our table. Meal was excellent. Our waitress was very efficient and her outgoing personality made the visit perfect. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and received a complimentary slice of cheesecake. As usual Robbie Bartlett providing entertainment topped off the evening. A true professional.
