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.

Excellent steakhouse in Nashville with outstanding service. Food was excellent just as recommended by others who have dined there. Server was outstanding with recommendations and service. Manager was visibly present and went around to every table to speak with customers. A must place to dine in Nashville.

Went there for our birthday celebration. We have been there at least a couple dozen times through the years. We made reservations 3 weeks ago and yet they put us in the bar. They were out of creamed corn. Creamed spinach was not good at all. Mac and cheese was very good as always. Sushi was way smaller than normal and not as good. Steaks were WAY thinner than I have ever seen there. Drinks were very good. They used to get your valet ticket and have your car waiting but not anymore. No birthday desert like so many times in the past. It was very hot in there too. Stuffy. Jeff Ruby’s used to be a dinning experience but now it’s just normall nothing special. They have cut back way too much.

We dined on Monday evening, July 19. You won't experience better service anywhere. The one issue I have is the quality control over the grill/grill master. During my previous visit, my steak was overcooked. On this visit, I ordered the ribeye. I ordered it medium rare and even mentioned that if they erred, they should err toward the rare side. Unfortunately my steak was delivered DEEP into the medium zone. Yes, I could have complained and sent it back, but I was there for a special occasion and didn't wish to draw any attention from our event. I did notice that the gentleman at the adjacent table sent his back. For $75, one expects an exceptional steak. This problem can easily be remedied, and by no means should it deter anyone from visiting.

We try to stop in to Jeff Ruby’s every time we find ourselves traveling through Nashville. Absolutely LOVE the ambiance…especially in the bar which is where we were seated. The live piano music, waiters in formal white suits, and some of the most well-trained hostesses, bartenders and wait staff, make this place a throw back to what service is really all about! On top of that…every morsel that we ate was exquisite! Oysters on the half shell were delicious and our steaks and sides were perfectly cooked, seasoned and presented. We enjoyed our slightly dirty martinis with blue cheese olives as well as some wonderful wine by the glass. Perfect evening! The price tag is premium, but they truly deliver on excellence in all areas.

By far the best restaurant I have ever been to; service was impeccable! Our waiter had over twenty years experience in fine dining and it showed. He was essential in guiding our decisions with drinks and courses to create the ultimate dining experience.

I’m a critic at heart, but it’s incredibly difficult to critique Jeff Ruby’s. Everything was on point, from the atmosphere to everything between drinks and desserts, they delivered on making the evening 100% worth the price. I have been to few white-tablecloth steakhouses, but Jeff Ruby’s was without comparison. Unlike others, I was comfortable throughout our entire visit.

The only— and I’m nitpicking here— the only thing I would say is the bread crumbs were inadvertently left off our mac and cheese. We didn’t address it with the staff, but I’m sure it would have been handled promptly and appropriately. Other than that, the bacon appetizer was a little hefty and nearly resembled a pork chop. Once we ordered it, we sensed a little hesitation from our waiter, as if he was going to recommend something else but didn’t want to be overreaching. I got the feeling it’s one of their least popular appetizers— yet, still, in a whole different ballpark from any other restaurant.

My wife and I were celebrating my 30th birthday and our evening came to a close with the three-layer carrot cate along with house-made ice cream. They even sent a complimentary dessert sampler with a candle to celebrate the occasion. All of this, of course, was divine.

Overall (and remember, I’m overly critical) I feel they earned 9.7/10. We would certainly return, and if money was no option for us we would frequent at least once a month. As it is, Jeff Ruby’s will be that special treat reserved for pampering ourselves on the most notable occasions.

To the entire staff: Thank you for making our evening an experience that we will carry the rest of our lives.

Did not receive compliments of the chef sample. Other tables did. It was my wife's birthday - several other tables received a small desert with candle. We did not. Dinner took 3 hours. 35 minutes just to get desert. I believe the dishwasher served us our dinner portion of the meal. Our staff to busy talking to other tables and catering to them. Cincinnati Ruby's blows this one away!!!
