Excellent entertainment with Kelsey Mira Band. Great experience, good food and service, but you never expect value at Jeff Ruby restaurants. Equally great steak and overall experience at half the price at other places.

The service was very rushed! We arrived a few minutes early and planned to have a drink at the bar. The table was ready and they insisted we go ahead t the table. Our entree arrived before we finished the salad. Needless to say we went somewhere else for a nightcap.

Great food. Great servers. Highly recommend. I recommend the New ayork Strip and the Cowboy Steaks which were cooked to perfection and their Mac & cheese and carrot Servers were very attentive to our every need. If you are going the you beat this for dinner before and valet parking.

Our steaks were not cooked well, we ordered them medium, but the 1st batch came out well done, then the 2nd batch came out medium rare. By this time, I just wanted to eat but that was a mistake I should have returned them again to ensure they got our steaks correct especially since were paying a large price.

Spent a weeknight out with my husband for his birthday. We have 3 children and he works 2nd shift, so it was a VERY rare evening out for the both of us! The restaurant was the perfect choice because there were no children around us and we were able to talk about all kinds of things without being distracted! The waiter came to the table mid conversation and apologized for interrupting - it was absolutely no bother to us - we were lost in our own little world for a short period of time and that's all we needed! Thank you Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse! Wonderful evening!!!

Experienced Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. As we arrived we were greeted warmly and escorted to our table immediately even though we arrived 10 minutes early. Our server approached in a perfectly acceptable amount of time, was helpful in explaining the menu and offering suggestions regarding certain cuts of meat and even brought us ice cream at the end of the meal with a candle in it and said "happy anniversary." He also recommended a Rhinegeist brew that was perfect. My only disappointment of the entire evening was that when our "carryout" was prepared the onions and mushrooms I had ordered were not included...but the steak still tasted great the second day. A perfect dinner for a very special occasion....

Jon was our waiter and he was excellent, along with the food recommendation. Our steaks melt in your mouth, really didn't need a steak knife to cut them. Like everyone else you should try the carrot cake, we took a slice with us and enjoyed an Irish coffee at the restaurant. If you don' t have room for the carrot cake at least try an Irish coffee before you leave. This was not our first visit to this Ruby location and we've been to all of them in the Cincinnati area. Jeff Ruby's restaurant's are always our first choice when looking for a great restaurant.

You can never go wrong with Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. The service was exceptional and the food is consistently perfect. The atmosphere around the bar after dinner is great with life music. While the band started strong I was not the biggest fan of the final performance after the break as the song selection was't the best. F

We love Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse. It has the best steak in town. The only thing that I have to say that is negative is the fact that I think the prices are too high. If a salad or side would be included in the entree that would make a big difference and more people would be able to afford dining there.

This was my first visit to the restaurant. As the evening got later (we had reservations at 8 on a weeknight and were home by 10) the music from the bar got louder. My husband and I found it hard to have a conversation as we progressed through our meal. Our server was great but it seemed he had too many tables and we were left unattended for the first part of our visit. My husband and I both ordered filets and neither were cooked medium as ordered. He and I both had overcooked steaks. I was so hungry that I ate mine anyway but he did send his back. The next steak was cooked perfectly. We ordered dessert and weren't disappointed. The carrot cake was out of this world! The staff did want my husband to be happy with his steak and checked on him several times. They even comped the dessert as an apology for the steak. Overall it was just an ok experience.

We love to visit this restaurant whenever we are in Cincinnati. Service and food are both wonderful. Two members of our party split a King Strip steak and ate every bite! One lady commented that it was the best steak she had ever eaten. I decided to go vegetarian and selected soup and salad for my entree but was also able to partake in the selected sides. The mac and cheese dish is wonderful!! We finished with carrot cake. I love the little fabric totes they provide for take home of extras. A great place to treat oneself!

Great restaurant. Absolute best steak in town. Also, got the lobster tail. This was good but not great. My wife got the Chilean Sea Bass and this was excellent too. Raw bar was fantastic. Great wines. Overall great meal and experience.

The Filet Mignon that I ordered was absolutely amazing. I've had their filet before, but this was by far the best. Medium Rare and cooked to a T, tasted great and was so much that i couldn't finish. Loved the recommended Appetizer (Oyster Rockefeller) and the Wife thoroughly enjoyed the waiter's recommendation for a Sorbet that wasn't listed on the dessert menu. Wasn't a steal as far as price... but that's to be expected when dining there... loved the overall customer experience.

Very disappointed with our Jeff Ruby experience. We were seated basically right between two parties which made it very uncomfortable. The staff never asked if we were celebrating an occasion, and felt awkward coming forward with that info on our own. The food was nothing spectacular, and extremely over priced. I guess the name alone is what carries this place. Definitely won't step foot in another Ruby property.
Service was wonderful, food was good. O ...
Service was wonderful, food was good. Only downfall was, I was there for my 1 year anniversary with my wife and conversation was limited and not very private. Seating was really close to the other table and felt more like I was at dinner with the couple next to me and not my wife.

I'll start by saying we have dined at this Ruby's and their other locations many times. For this visit we saw a last minute 7:30pm Friday night reservation and decided to grab it. Upon arrival we were led to the very back room which I didn't even know existed. The main dining room was only maybe 70% full so not sure why they were even seating back there. The back room was not as intimate as the main room, overall the ambiance was just lacking. Our server greeted us promptly, offered the specials and returned in a timely manner to take our order but we hardly saw him again. Once the food arrived, we were never approached to ensure everything was to our satisfaction, we ended up having to refill our own wine glasses, and were not offered desert. The food was great as always, but for the price tag I expect the full Ruby's experience which just didn't happen on this visit. I'll think twice before choosing their restaurants again.

I took my husband there to celebrate our 50th anniversary and his 85th Birthday. We had never been to Jeff Ruby's and this was quite a celebration. It was the best meal we have ever eaten. The waiter was outstanding and the food was awesome. We were not rushed and enjoyed a two hour date.
