About Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse - Louisville

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.

My first experience at Ruby's I had the filet Collingsworth and was my unimpressed with the steak. Everything else was perfect. This time I had the 12 oz filet rare plus. Absolutely perfectly prepared steak! Crab cake exactly as all my favorite Nola places. Restaurant was very busy but everything came our perfectly timed! Peanut butter pie dish that we "had" to have was rich and delish. Phenomenal meal! And the musician was great!!!

I don't think royalty eats any better than we did at Jeff Ruby's . From the bread to the salad, sides, steak and dessert, everything was beautifully prepared and couldn't be more delicious. Our server, Jacob, gave stellar service the entire evening. We had a wonderful dinner and can't wait to return.

The food was excellent as always. A sweating pipe on the North side of the restaurant was dripping on Us, and adjacent booths. Some of our leftovers didn’t make it home. Overall, the service was satisfactory, and I will return, but it wasn’t the A experience I have come to expect.

Jeff Ruby’s is consistent and always excellent. The sushi is fresh. The shrimp cocktail sauce is the best I have ever had. The steaks are perfectly cooked and amazing. Don’t pass up the carrot cake- it will blow your mind.

My wife and I made reservations for an early Valentine’s Day dinner the weekend before Valentine’s. We arrived and several groups were standing at the hostess station. The hostess were unusually slow in seating people even though the restaurant was less than half capacity. After a few short minutes, we were directed to tour table. Our server, Andrei, immediately greeted us and took our drink orders and explained the specials. After looking over the menu we were ready to order. My wife again opted for the petite filet and I chose the special 16oz boneless ribeye. We split a baked potato and mac-n-cheese. We had a few drinks while waiting on the food. In no time, the food arrived just as we had ordered. My special boneless ribeye was excellent and they should consider adding it to the menu permanently. While we always have excellent service, our server Andrei has been our favorite. He is so nice and engaging and addressed all out our questions and concerns. He checked back on us just the right amount of times. We ordered a piece of chocolate pecan pie to take home. Our meal was perfect and Andrei added to it immensely. We will be back and will be sure to try to get a table in Andrei’s section.

Jeff Ruby’s always exceeds our expectations. We had wine, filet and veal chop. My husband ordered the veal chop medium rare and when he received it decided he wanted medium. The wait staff were phenomenal. It was his fault for ordering it that way but they took it back and made sure it was perfect for him. Ruby’s is our favorite because of the great food but also the way we are treated. It is always a fun night out at Jeff Ruby’s ❤️

One of the few spots in Kentucky that has fresh, house-made blue cheese olives ready for your martini. Delightful and skilled servers, truffle butter with bread service, faultless food.

Everything about our dining experience was exceptional. The wait staff, the food, the ambiance was all exceptional! I would recommend it to anyone that wants a really special night out, or just doesn't mind spending $$$ on dinner. It was an expensive meal for my budget, but a real treat and i'm hoping to be able to treat myself again.... would like to try the rib eye next time...maybe some of those giaganitc crab legs .
