Steakhouse
The flagship brand of his growing, family of eponymous eateries, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse tells the story of his life. From the opulent interiors to the artwork & antique furnishings to the sign on the original Cincinnati location that reads “Since 1948” (the year Ruby was born), every facet has a special meaning to the man himself. Now open in Nashville, TN, each iteration of these critically-acclaimed restaurants is rooted in the heritage of the original, yet each also tells a tale of its own, inextricably woven into the unique fabric of the community in which it resides. The most noteworthy element of the brand – and undeniably the key to its success – is The Jeff Ruby Experience, an all-encompassing philosophy embodying the very best U.S.D.A. Steaks, Fresh Seafood, Impeccable Service, Live Entertainment and Passionate Attention To Detail. These qualities and more create a total dining experience unlike any other. An experience we’re proud to bring to the great city of Nashville.

Where do I start…? Well, first off Jason B. was easily one of the best servers (knowledge, personality, loves what he does) I’ve ever been lucky enough to pair up with. Truly made the experience a small miracle. The food, forget Morton’s, forget Ruth Chris, Jeff Ruby’s is a level up. The ambiance, the selection of wine and Scotch, the no-rush vibe all paired very well with our ribeyes and Sea Bass. And when we ordered a simple desert, Jason brought out several other items for us try, at no extra cost. Then when he bagged up our take hone items, he threw in extra sourdough bread and several of their incredible butter mixes. ..he then took our bag to our vehicle so we didn’t have to deal with that. After all of this, he gave us his business card and told us the next time we are in Nashville, give him a call and he will find a way to get us a table on no notice..! Expensive? Yes, but sometimes you get what you pay for. We’ll be going back soon.

Good food, but not great like we had hoped based on previous reviews. Celebrated 25th anniversary and very disappointed. They did not even give a celebratory desert or drink.
Burtta was salty and bacon bourbon sauce was eh. Have had much better elsewhere. My wife had the chicken Wellington and was not impressed and would not recommend. I had the barrel cut filet for $80 and was not impressed at all especially for the price. Mac and cheese was supposed to be top notch but barely ate it - the bechamel base was gritty and did not hit the mark. I never talk bad about a place but with such high expectations this was extremely underwhelming.
I’m sure another steakhouse would be a better option for an almost $300 bill.

The steaks are heavily seasoned. Wife and myself couldn’t eat it. To me, a really good steak needs minimal seasoning like salt and pepper.

I took my husband to Jeff Ruby’s for his birthday, and oh my goodness, wow! Everything was impeccable.
Our waiter was Joseph and he was so welcoming and very knowledgeable.

The food was definitely worth the price.

Alaskan king crab cake, is a must.

The glazed sea bass and Collinsworth filet we had as our entrees, amazing.

Extensive wine list, loved that!

Reservations are well booked in advance. We will absolutely be back!

I now have a new fav Dry martini, with Kettle One 🍸😜 The service, food, and ambience is always superb! Never disappointed ❤️❤️💋💋🥂

We had dinner for the first time here September 12, 2021. We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. We started off with oysters, the thick cut bacon, and The Godfather roll which were all a 10/10. We also ordered the El Jefe Margarita which was okay but I’ve definitely had better. They also bring bread which was warm with truffle butter and a nice touch to the meal. For our main courses I ordered a New York strip which was not hot or even warm when it got to the table. My boyfriend ordered the sea bass which he sent back because it was awful. Our server brought him a grilled chicken breast instead and that was even worse than the sea bass. We also ordered the Mac and cheese(it’s amazing) and the lemon ricotta ravioli which we did not like maybe because it was cold? We finished with the ricotta doughnuts and they may be the best thing on the menu! All in all the ambience was wonderful. The staff was friendly and educating. I felt there were a few times that we were waiting for our server and that’s not the case at some other high end Nashville steakhouses. We did enjoy ourselves and hopefully next time we can find something on the entree menu that we can actually enjoy.

This was our first time in Nashville, as it was our first time at Jeff Ruby's, and we were not disappointed... Our waiter Stephen was outstanding.. he went above and beyond to make sure our night came together the way we wanted. The steak was cooked to perfect, with a nice sear on the outside and nice cool red center on the inside.. my cocktail which was the red sky, was great, they really take their time preparing the drinks, making sure they have a good balance.. only issue we had with our experience was the location of the restaurant as it is place within the heart of downtown Nashville, so it's very difficult to find parking accommodations for your vehicle.. I recommend this place to anyone in the nation..
