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.

the server was one of the best I have ever had. Very knowledgeable about the different cuts and willing to take his time and really explain things beyond general information. As a foodie it is always insisting to learn about where the cuts are coming from, their particular attributes, and how to pair them.

The overall experience was top notch. We celebrated a birthday, and they did not disappoint. We were seated at table 10; which is like a cabaret style booth seating. It was generous in size and gave a great view of the entertainment without being in the bar area.
The service was the best and the food was great.

I’ve eaten at Jeff Ruby’s many times, and have always loved it! This time was no different! We were there for a Bachelorette party and the staff went above and beyond to make our experience out of this world! My only regret was being too full to enjoy dessert!

My wife and I enjoy a nice dinner out in Nashville at least once a month. We’ve been to most of the well-known steakhouses, and Jeff Ruby’s is now our favorite. The steaks were the highest quality beef I’ve ever eaten, and cooked to perfection. We wanted to try the sushi as well, and it was amazing. The elected to take it a step further and get dessert, and their chocolate cake was decadent. Jeff Ruby’s is now at the top of our list of favorite fine dining establishments.

We waited for 15 mins for an 8pm reservation. We were seated at a small table up against the wall where my brother who is a large man was not comfortable and clearly did not have enough room. We asked to move and were taken to a larger table in the middle of the rear area. Wait staff was wonderful. Shrimp cocktail was wonderful. The Caesar salads had a very -I’m not sure what the word is here - off taste. I said to my brother that it’s almost like fish water. Bad anchovies, too much anchovy, something. We both could not finish them, which is a rarity with salads. I’ve never had a Caesar salad as horrible as this. Moving on. My brother ordered two, yes two, steaks and a lobster tail and thought the steaks were unmemorable compared to the Kayne wagyu steaks we had the previous night. I agreed my steak at Kayne was far superior, but was cooked to perfection. The decor was lost on us and again thought Kayne’s atmosphere was superior. We sadly would not come back here if we had Kayne as an alternative.

I love Jeff Ruby's, but tonight was not their best night. I spent $1000 tonight and expected better. Steaks cooked wrong, drinks weren't refilled, slow service, etc.

Birthday dinner. Very high level of service; however, food did not live up to the hype or price. One member of our party had lobster tail that had to be sent back due to being undercooked. It was handled very appropriately with an entirely new lobster tail and removal of it from the final bill (which was not asked for, but we were told by our waiter that it had been done.) I ordered the petite filet cooked medium well. It was very overcooked - difficult to cut because it was so tough and tasteless. (Probably my fault for ordering a good steak cooked medium well!) My husband and the other member of our party both ordered the larger filet cooked medium rare, and they both reported that theirs were delicious.
We all enjoyed the macaroni however the warm ricotta donuts were excellent.

We love coming to Jeff Ruby's for a special night out. We came this time to celebrate my husbands birthday and were treated with the upmost service and hospitality. I have a special diet I have to eat and our server was quick to pick out drinks and food items that I could eat. He was patient with my several questions and always had a smile. We will definitely be back and always recommend to our friends.

I’m a former steakhouse service captain and my girlfriend is still in restaurant management currently . We always try the best steakhouse when visiting a new city and Jeff Ruby’s Nashville did not disappoint. Our server Donovan( I think ) did a nice job , no pushiness and he didn’t over service us at all . He had the answers to whatever questions we had every time . Probably one of the best service experiences Ive had in a steakhouse The food In general was very good, a little disappointed in the ribeye I had I’d say 4/5 but still very very good. Every other dish was 5/5. Good old school feel nice and quiet. 10/10 would go back if In Nashville . Highly recommend . Ask for Donovan

One of our favorite places in Nashville to go out! The service is always outstanding and the vibe is always just right. We did have to send a steak back twice to be re cooked but the management took the time to come out and speak with us and make sure we were very happy in the end as always !

Everything was "almost" great! Service was excellent. Food was good. Dover Sole was prepared perfectly, but the steaks (petite filet) had some sinews through them making a part of them impossible to cut. The atmosphere is up-beat...just a bit loud for having conversation.
