Hostest reseated us after offering a table that was literally adjoined to another patron. Was no issue but somewhat surprised that they would seat strangers so close together. Service was excellent.

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. 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 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.

The salads, sides and desserts were excellent. The donuts deserve a special mention. However, of the 4 steaks, 2 were a bit overcooked, 1 was undercooked, and 1 was very overcooked. This should not happen at this price point, though we appreciated management attempting to make it right.

This was the best dining experience I've ever had. The food was phenomenal and the staff provider excellent service. They were there whenever you needed and everything was prompt. As far as the food, my date got the Collinsworth, I got the Gem of Jeff Ruby's and they were both stellar. It was a huge dinner but unbelievable delicious. We also split the Mac and cheese and asparagus which were also great. The best thing we ordered though had to be the carrot cake. We have dreams about the carrot cake. We are talking about making plans to come back just to order from their dessert menu! Overall this was an amazing night provided to us by the entire team at Jeff Rubys!!

Jeff Ruby entertains you with simply outrageous steaks and a deep wine list and serves it up in style. Different than his other restaurants in town - Precinct, Carlo and Johnny's in some preparations. This is the high-brow place where we;re all treated royally.

It started out terrific.....worth every dime, then when they got busy our waiter disappeared and we had to literally "flag" someone down to get coffee.

Everything about Jeff Ruby's was great. This was our first time to dine there, and I would certainly go back. The food was wonderful, the servers were great, and every one made you feel special. We ordered a glass of wine and were told to enjoy our glass of wine. Unlike some restaurants you are served the wine and they want to take your order and get you out. Kudos to Jeff Rubys and we will recommend to anyone.
Wonderful experience as always!
We came for our 37th wedding anniversary. Right from the start everyone greeted us as we walked to our table. Service was great as always. The food, well anyone that has been here knows it can't be beat. Our waiter was extra special and brought us a dessert with a candle in it. Nice touch. We love coming here and will continue doing so for many years. Thank you everyone at Jeff Rubys for a very nice anniversary.
Very very good. The staff was extremely attentive. The bar was well stocked with fine spirits and brews. The steak, crab legs, scallops, Caesar salad, and the two desserts were delicious.
Great place to dine any day of the week. One of my favorite steak houses in the city of Cincinnati.
excellent in every way
Jeff Ruby's is one of our favorite restaurants. We frequently go to Chicago to visit our son and dine in the many steak restaurants for which that city is known. Ruby's steak house is every bit as great as the best in Chicago. Service is always excellent and the food is superb. My only disappointment was this evening was my wife's birthday, which we told our waiter when we arrived, he stated the required birthday greeting, but most restaurants of this caliber would have done a dessert or other gesture for the celebration. Not a big deal, but a little surprised.

Delicious great experience our server Travis was amazing and did a great job well done
As usual, Jeff Ruby's was excellent and we were very well taken care of. My husband and I always enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Ruby's and the food is always done to perfection. With the warmer temperatures now here, the Cigar Patio is the perfect place for a before and after dinner cocktail; not to mention the people watching outside always provides wonderful entertainment. The staff always makes you feel welcome and ensure you are having a wonderful experience while dining at Ruby's. Nothing goes unnoticed. If you're looking for a great steak in the city, Ruby's downtown is the place to go. The steak is always to the correct temperature and the sides are always good. And you can't go wrong with any of the desserts or the after dinner beverages.
Food was excellent and our server was great! He was attentive but not too pesty. It was our anniversary and they made it a night to remember for me and my wife! We have always been fans of The Precinct but I think we now have a new favorite in Jeff Ruby's Downtown.
Great food all but the soup just so so
The food was great all but the soup one note no valet till 6 pm. The location was great the service was as expected excellent my only negative is they need a better soup choice.
Service is always personable and very attentive. We think Keegan is a talented waiter. Food is consistently superb! The atmosphere is special, beautiful and we always look forward to having dinner at Jeff Ruby's.

Great experience from beginning to end. The food was unbelievable and our waiter was exceptional. We all had Prime USDA steaks and everyone was cooked to perfection. Service throughout the meal was informative, attentive, and non-interruptive. Great bottle a wine as well.

This is our go to restaurant for very special occasions. I'm not sure what happened to this 5 star restaurant. From waiting 45 minutes to be seated (we had a reservation) to the service and the food was just bad this night. Will try again. Hope it was just that one night

Excellent in every way - service was beyond our expectations!
Staff was fantastic! Can't wait to go back. Known for their steak but who knew Mac & Cheese could be so delicious.
Can you say.. AWESOME!
Back in town for a family visit and decided to hit another steakhouse by Jeff Ruby. We had a fabulous evening! From the moment we arrived to our eventual departure we felt extremely appreciated and could not believe how many times the two managers stopped by our table to ensure everything was going completely to our satisfaction (we did not they did this with almost every table, not just ours). Our waiter allowed us all the time we wanted between each course and made sure the food arrived when we were ready. This restaurant was so much better than the Precint we will never go back. What a fabulous steakhouse!
Jeff Ruby brand
My Montreal visitors enjoyed our booth and the excellent meal and service. Since Montreal is one of the top dining cities in North America, there appreciation of the Jeff ruby brand of dining was much appreciated. i am always delighted that locals and visitors savor and favor this trademarked brand of superb dining experience.
