    Fabulous service and delicious food! We travel a lot and dine in many excellent restaurants. This is the first time I’ve had salmon cooked well that wasn’t dried out! Absolutely perfect! Best restaurant ever!

    Always been a big fan of jeff rubies and always had a great experience. Hands down last night was the worst experience we've had. Oysters were Very small and lacking of flavor and one of the eight that we ordered look like it Was in the process of rotting. Our server's attitude was fabulous, but drinks were moderately slow. We had a huge lull between our appetizers and the main course. I ordered the wagon ribeye And to my astonishment, it was basically unedible. I've had the wagon filet and ribeye several times before and it has all been delicious. This ribeye Had an excellent flavor but you literally head to spit out the gristle. I love rib eye steak and I. Enjoy the fat. I don't care for the gristle. And this particular cut was basically nothing but gristle. So I asked for another steak. The waitress said the chef suggest you have the fillet instead. I said you know what that's fine. Whatever the chef suggests is great with me, but it's not about the fat on the steak As she had indicated. Eventually, the filet came out. It looked like it was at the very best three and a half ounces. And it was delicious, but I felt shorted On what was supposed to be a six ounce steak. I ordered a captain, Morgan and Diet Coke and ended up with a bourbon. And diet coke. The waitress changed it, but both of the drinks ended up on our final bill. We ordered the university of kentucky blueberry cake. The presentation was amazing, but the cake was exceptionally dry and not good at all. You all ended up giving us a comp. On the dessert which was fine. But the overall experience was at least an hour longer than we wanted to be in the restaurant. And we walked away extremely disappointed. Compared to our normal experience at jeff ruby steakhouse.

    Ambiance at Jeff Ruby’s is best! Waygu steak was overcooked😣and drinks were weak and not well made…Negroni and gin martini with blue cheese olives. Rest was great but an uneven experience.

    Our two person service team Gabrielle and Josh were terrific. The food was delicious. Sushi was very fresh, oysters were great and the steaks were perfectly cooked and very tender. The table side banana foster was old school and fabulous. We will be back. Great job!

    There were four of us in my party. We had purchased gift cards, we came last year and had a great meal, but we decided after this visit we would no longer purchase the gift cards. However, after a wonderful evening with friends, enjoying a delicious meal, and great service, we decided that we WOULD continue to purchase the $80.00 gift cards with a value of $100.00. Hope to see you next year!

    Unfortunately two of the six entrees came out of the kitchen cold. We had to ask for the mushroom side dish to be served and it arrived at the table more than half way through the main course. After two bottles of a beautiful Pinot Noir, we were told that was all there was from that vineyard, so when I asked for the sommelier’s recommendation another Pinot Noir was suggested, just to be told a few minutes later that the recommended wine was not available either. All of this is not what we expected from our experiences at Jeff Ruby’s but I do compliment the team for attempting to recover by comp’ing our third bottle of wine.

    The service was excellent, the servers went above and beyond to meet our needs. The food was good but not any better than Malone’s or Texas Roadhouse especially for the price. I ordered a “rare” steak and it was more medium and I know I could have told the server, but I hate to waste. I know you pay for the name “Jeff Ruby” and the atmosphere but not sure it’s worth the $550 price tag for 4 people. (Only one person drank liquor).

    I sat at the bar (solo), Gerardo was great….very engaging, helpful, listened…and he was busy with a full bar (it was Blue Grass Stakes Weekend). And his partner Graham was equally helpful and engaging. I returned a couple of nights later, the whole restaurant was full, Gerardo saw me, told me he would reserve a spot for me. 10 minutes later, I’m seated. Just great customer service…and I saw Gerardo treating everyone this way. I’ve traveled a lot to many high end restaurants, and I put these guys in my top 5 for service (maybe 3) and the restaurant in my top 7-8. I’ll definitely be back when I return to Lexington.

    We went to Jeff rubys with two friends for our anniversary. Got excellent information and service from waiter and wait staff. Steaks were tender and perfectly cooked. Waiter offered to take picture of us and unknown to us placed picture in a little anniversary holder and presented it to us at end of meal! Asparagus and Brussels sprouts were cooked perfect and tender. Great place for a special occasion

    Top of the line. Beef tartar, served over a generous amount of bone marrow. Best appetizer in house. The hatchet….. you will NOT experience a steak like this any where else.
