    Another great experience at Jeff Ruby restaurant! We were in Lexington for UK family weekend and took the family to late dinner on Saturday night. It was our first time in JR Lexington and our experience could not have been any better. Our server Jonathon was wonderful. He was what I have come to expect but just a notch higher. And the food was the same. Probably one of the best NY strips that I have had at one of Ruby’s restaurants. I would definitely recommend visiting Jeff Ruby’s Lexington while in town.

    Made the mistake of having a very expensive dinner in the bar area of a fine restaurant. Have dined several times in the beautiful dining room and had an excellent overall experience. The service in the bar area was not up to the level of what we were spending on dinner. At Rubys eating in the bar equaled par bar service. Not fine dining service. Also the seats were very small and not comfortable at all. Will never sit in the bar for a 5 star dinner. Unfortunately, this left a bad taste for Ruby’s

    Sat on the patio-near someone smoking a cigar-which was horrible. The service was pretty good, only had to ask for water once. The food was ok, not excellent, especially for the price. I've definitely had a better steak elsewhere. The atmosphere would be a lot better without football games playing on multiple big screen TVs. If I want to watch sports-I'll go to a bar. Who wants to watch sports while celebrating a special occasion with a $600 dinner?

    It was an absolute delight dining at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. From the time you walk in to the time you walk out, there are great waiters, servers, and other employees there to tend to your every need. The food is absolutely spectacular. I ordered the New York Strip and my wife ordered the Steak Diane; also had the Potatoes Anna and the Brussel Sprouts. We also had the French Onion Soup as an appetizer and the Butter Pie for dessert. I honestly cannot wait to come back here again and enjoy a wonderful meal. It exceeded our already high expectations and we can’t wait to dine here again!

    We had an issue with the service, but the issue was corrected by DJ the manager. We appreciate his input and hospitality. We're fans of all Jeff Ruby's restaurants and frequent both the Lexington and Louisville locations. We recommend them to our friends and family and we plan to dine here again soon. At the Lexington location, the Potatoes Anna are amazing!

    Was surprised that my steak was smaller than before and was tough. Also the onion soup was full of sage to the point that my partner couldn’t eat it. Service and ambiance was good as ever.

    My wife and I dinned at Jeff Ruby’s for the first time tonight for our anniversary. Server was amazing and very knowledgeable about the menu. Since we was celebrating our anniversary The server gave us a piece of black berry butter cake that was amazing. The side of the macaroni and cheese was plenty for us to share. My wife got the steak Collinsworth she enjoyed the meal and absolutely loved the Béarnaise sauce. For myself I got the 30oz tomahawk, now usually I don’t put anything on my steaks. Tonight I decided to crown my steak with the sweet onion bacon jam, I definitely did not make a bad decision with trying that. Don’t get me wrong the steak was amazing on its own, but taking a bite with the bacon jam on it was a total game changer. Each bite I took somehow got better than the last. Then came the last bite I was sad to see it go but glad for the time we had spent together.

    The steak Diane wasn't very good. The sauce was almost a salty sweet flavor. I regretted not getting a plain steak as soon as I bit into it. The Mac and cheese was about 20 actual noodles with an inch of thick 'crust' that was picked off because it was too salty to eat. I am not normally a person to complain about salt or something tasting too salty. The side salad I got was essentially a lexintonian, but with too much ranch and it was also too salty, surprise, surprise. Overall I was disappointed in my meal and felt it was not worth the 150 dollars spent. I will know better for next time. You should not leave a restaurant hungry after spending 150 on a meal.

    Went for our 6th anniversary dinner. It was our first time going. We both enjoyed it more than Carson’s (my favorite) and Tony’s (his favorite). The food was phenomenal, the ambiance was chill, very Art Deco 1920’s vibe, and the service was beyond great. We both appreciated how we didn’t feel rushed, the check wasn’t brought too soon, we were always given plenty of time for each course, and never felt like we were being pushed to finish. They kindly gave us a free dessert for our dinner and even took our photo, then giving us a personalized card and a copy of the photo. It was a small thing, but felt very sweet, and honestly made me feel appreciated and wanting to return again. Not one bad thing to say, it was fantastic in every way a restaurant should be. 10/10 would recommend.
