    We enjoy the Jeff Ruby’s experience at least 4-5 times a year. We usually patronize the Lexington and Louisville locations. This was our first visit to the downtown Cincinnati restaurant. We were graciously greeted and accommodated earlier than our reservation and given a nice seat in the bar and enjoyed the piano player very much. Our server was very efficient, polite and gracious. Our cocktails were beautifully presented and very tasty. The appetizer salad was more than enough for us both and we are thankful our server confirmed our inquiry to split. The Godfather sushi roll was delicious but a little “warm” to our liking….we prefer chilled sushi. Then comes the main entree. We both ordered the petite filet. The medium cooked filet was good, but the medium rare filet was chewy and under seasoned. The baked potato was one of the worst baked potatoes we have ever tried to eat. It was cold, hard, and dark in color. It appeared to have been left over from the day before and reheated…but not even warm. We have had better baked potatoes years ago in college when we splurged to go to Golden Corral. Not at all what one would expect from Jeff Ruby’s!! Our server was so gracious that we felt bad complaining to her. We gave her an $80 tip on a $270 meal for two. Someone at Jeff Ruby’s Cincinnati is telling someone, somewhere, to cut cost…but still charging the customer the same price. Very disappointing. We will return, but not sure in Cincinnati.

    Dress code needs to be looked at a little harder. I’d expect folks to know how to dress when visiting a higher class restaurant but unfortunately that was not the case on this visit. Baseball cap and gym shorts? Come on someone has to enforce that. Not trying to eat high end steak in a fast food environment.

    Service is great. I've had the filet and ribeye before so I though I'd try something different this time. I ordered Blue Crab Bisque, East and West Coast Oysters, Aronoff Salad and Sushi. The Blue Crab Bisque had minimal crab meat so I didn't think it was great. Oysters were ok but definitely overpriced. Sushi is about the same as higher end Sushi restaurants.

    One of the best meals I've had in a long time. The sushi was out of this world good, the steak melted in my mouth and had a ton of flavor. And don't forget dessert - the chocolate cake was delicious and could be split by two people easily.

    I had a friend come in from out of town and decided to take him for steak. As always, Jeff Ruby’s did not disappoint. Everything about the evening was incredible. My friend had so many good things to say. It is nice to have a place that is not only consistent every time, but also delivers a great experience.

    The food was amazing, as usual. Our issue this time was the service. Service is usually just as amazing as the food, but this time we were disappointed. It may be that our waiter was covering too many tables for some reason. I’m hoping this is the case and that it’s not a sign of things to come.

    We had a reservation and were seated early, the food was amazing as always and the hostess’ were really nice. Only issue was that our waitress greeted us and left us with the cocktail menu and didn’t come back for another 15-20 minutes. Her assistant was great though and refilled our waters numerous times. When it came time to order, our waitress had no clue what the market price was for some items, which is understandable to an extent. I work in food and it is mandatory we know the market prices for items. Otherwise food was great as always.

    Andrew was our waiter, and he was fantastic. He gave us a lot of attention and his assistant was equally as attentive. We loved our Wedge Salad and Freddie salads. The Wedge was special with braised bacon. Both salads were big and easily sharable. We decided to share the Tomahawk Steak special. We originally were going to share the Cowboy Steak, but we decided to go for the Tomahawk since it was the special. We ordered it medium Pittsburg Style (with a char), and it was cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, our steak did not have the flavor and excitement that we are used to with Ruby's steaks. We ate it all and enjoyed it, but we were a little disappointed, especially since the price was so high. We appreciated the chef's kindness to send us a small dessert sampling to help my husband celebrate his birthday. Thanks!
