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.

Jeff Ruby's is an upscale restaurant with outstanding service and top notch food. My experience was extremely satisfying and well worth the expense. I was, however, very disappointed that I saw a couple of men wearing baseball hats in the dining room. I felt it was very inappropriate. If I wanted a sports bar feel I could have chosen any one of the many downtown clubs to have dinner. But I chose Jeff Ruby's for the upscale experience. Gentlemen......leave your baseball hats home.

Our great experience began with Jacob’s warm hello greeting us when we came in the door. This guy is everything a manager should be. Made us feel right away like we were family and had been missed since our last visit.
Darryl was unbelievable as always. Food knowledge and service second to none.
It was nice seeing and speaking to Mr Ruby.
Chef made sure we left wishing our stomachs were twice the size so we could have enjoyed more.

Thanks for being the gold standard to Nashville dinning experiences.

Excellent service. Left an important document, accidentally, and AJ saw it had fallen on the floor, took it to the hostess desk with my name on it. That level of service does not happen everywhere. Excellent experience.

This was by far our best evening in Nashville when we visited.Everything about this restaurant is fabulous.The best Mac and cheese we have ever had.My king crab and my
Husband’s steak were amazing. Our servers were beyond amazing.Gunnar and Hunter were great.The decor is beautiful.There are magnificent chandeliers hanging.
Trish,the manager could not have been nicer,as was the help at the front desk. They even give you a cloth shopping bag to put your doggy bag in.There is NOTHING
That Jeff Ruby has not thought of.We loved every minute of our evening and cannot recommend this high enough.The best!

Our server was fantastic. Since we had a group of 9, we were in a private room. The main dining area may have been a little noisy due to the holiday crowds. The food was amazing... it sounds simple but the bacon side dish was my favorite :)

We went there for a birthday and the restaurant interior is stunning and so is the service. The acoustics leave a tad to be desired, just slightly pervasive. The staff are very welcoming and getting seated was quick. We were well taken care of; the courses came in a nicely timed manner; we were never rushed. The calamari was an original recipe and not out of the Aramark truck, for example. Everyone in our party liked their dinner. The price is high for the experience, for the reason that the cuisine, while very decent, was not haute cuisine, and I think the restaurant ambience suggests that it will be. The steaks are good; the side dishes are very decent. While I would not say Jeff Ruby's has any signature style, there are other reasons to find yourself at the restaurant, and I don't want to discount the stock on the selectivity of the staff and environment. One visit I would say I understand what they have to offer and it was an adventure. Thank you, next.

From Valet to dessert we were beyond happy with the service. We were both happy with our selections he chose the aged New York strip and I chose the sea bass, we shared the most appetizing Brussel sprouts you could ask for along with green beans. For dessert we decided to sample the Chocolate cake and the pumpkin tarte with a scoop of Carmel ice cream. And the bread don't forget the bread.

My girlfriends and I dined at Jeff Ruby’s to celebrate my birthday and I can’t express how wonderful our experience was. We were given the royal treatment and the food was AMAZING. The staff went above and beyond to make us all feel catered to and even treated us to a delicious dessert. The decor and music were beautiful. I can’t thank Jeff Ruby’s enough and already can’t wait to go back.

This is an excellent restaurant. I really enjoyed it and thought the service was excellent. My food was very good and had great flavor. My only disappointment was that all of our steaks were overcooked. We all ordered medium rare which is a red warm center. They were all pink and a bit dry. I would probably specify the rare part next time. Sending food back is not something I like to do as it causes everyone to have to wait and just makes the night uncomfortable. If they had not been edible, I would have sent them back.
