Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

I frequent Jeff Ruby's for special occasions with my family, and we always have fabulous service - it really contributes to the entire experience. Miles is our waiter of choice, and he always does an Extraordinary job. However, a friend and I dined alone last night (Miles was not working, unfortunately) and had just decent service. Not only did our waiter fail to go above and beyond (like is my typical experience at several Ruby's establishments), but he wasn't even that attentive generally. My friend and I both felt that it was because we were being financially profiled as two mid-twenties women dining alone. It was a low feeling; very unlike any other experience I have had at Jeff Ruby's. Unfortunate, especially considering we both practice law in Cincinnati and frequently have business development dinners in the city. Looks like we won't be choosing Ruby's if the client is young.

I love Jeff Ruby's but it was not a good night of service. My date was not happy with the service for money spent when I was treated to choose dinner location. Our server was too busy. We had to ask for our drinks and even to place our order. We were in the back room, which I did not enjoy. Too loud and felt too closely placed to the other tables. Our romantic dinner wasn't great and didnt feel private when you are in the middle of two other tables and hear both tables conversations. Wasnt worth spending over $250.00.

Always a great choice for special occasions. The steaks are the best in the city and certainly in the top five in the US.
The service is always impeccable and they go out of their way to make the evening perfect.
Splurge and have any one of their dry aged steaks, you won't regret it!

First time back at Rubys in 3 years. The food was excellent. The service was terrible. After requesting a "few minutes" to look over the menu" our waiter returned TWENTY minutes later. Never once did anyone come and clean up our table, so we ate amid countless bread crumbs and half eaten butter plates. There were a gaggle of staff working that night, but this place is too expensive to tolerate this level of service.

My Mother-In-Law is always thinking to treat us special, and has surprised us to come into town to take us to Carlos & Johnny's for memorable occasions. We wanted to surprise her & take her to a place she would love for her Birthday Dinner and that she has never been. What can I say, you can't beat Ruby's first class service. The filet was still on our minds many, many meals afterwards. We shared the biggest monster piece of carrot cake we had ever seen, including tasty cocktails made to perfect order, & giant raw bar shrimp & crab legs. Jeff Ruby's is the best...Thank you for a great night!

Is a very unique restaurant with great service overall and good food. Expensive. Only knock I had was that I ordered a 12oz filet cooked to medium, it came out extremely rare. Sent it back and it came out medium rare at best. For a high-end restaurant known for steak, I was surprised.

Jeff Ruby's didn't quite meet expectations. The quality of the meat was very good, but it seems the only spice they know is salt. It was used quite excessively and diminished the flavor of the beef.
The Caesar salad was mediocre, the side dishes brought more salt to the table than was necessary again. Vegetables were grossly over priced and little more than a few scrapesof shallots and olive oil.
The service was phenomenal, but overall I would sum it up as VERY overpriced for the amateurish quality of the kitchen's execution.

Food, ambiance and service were phenomenal! We were there to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and the managers and staff were so personable and accommodating, they made us feel like we were the only patrons there! We're so glad our first dining experience at Jeff Ruby's was so positive. We'll definitely return!
If I had to make one small complaint, it would be that the live band, albeit VERY good, was extremely loud, which made intimate conversation a little difficult. But, again, overall, we were very pleased with everything.

We went for the Do Dowtown special that was offered last week. Our dinner was $45.00 each. However the steak was all bone. Only 2 bites of meat. Asked for shrimp as a appetizer, but the waiter forgot it... Asked for lemon for my drink, which was also never brought to the table. Kinda disappointed.

We love Jeff Ruby's it's our favorite restaurant - never been unhappy with our meal. The service is great, your staff is great, food quality is great. We come in for a dinner, a drink at the bar and listen to music or just gab a bit to eat at the bar with a friend. We also have a favorite waiter his name is Tony Freda he is excellent aways make our dinner special.

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday here. Our server, Travis, was outstanding, as was everyone assisting him. Knowing that is was a special occasion, they took a picture of us, printed it out, then gave it to us in a nice paper frame. The food is always great and the overall experience was fabulous.

Steak was ordered medium+ and came out well done. They took the steak back to be remade which came back under cooked. While the new steak was being cooked our $13.00 mashed potatoes and $13.00 macaroni and cheese got cold and they did not offer new sides. The bill was not discounted at all for the cold food and mis-cooked steaks twice. Our other steak ordered medium well came out well done but we did not send it back.
So basically, while my husbands steak was being made again I ate my overcooked steak and when his steak came out I was finished so we didn't really have a meal together.

You guys are always top notch!!!!! Our waiter on Friday evening "Travis" was very knowledgable with the specials and wine list. Recommended a wine to my date and she loved it. He helped make the evening that much better.

We had a great experience. The first table was in the middle of the traffic pattern, but our waiter recognized this and asked if we would be more comfortable elsewhere. After a move to a more private area, we had nothing but an excellent experience and wonderful service. The food was delicious with my wife opting for sea food while I enjoyed a perfectly cooked and seasoned porter house. We were not rushed nor ignored. At $260 with an 18% tip, it was a little pricey for two, but we each had a couple of drinks and a good time. No regrets and I look forward to visiting again in the future.

The appetizers were good but the main meal and sides left much to be desired.
My steak , bone in ribeye,was salty and burnt around the edges, suppose to be medium rare.
My business partners filet was great according to him
Sides ordered were mushrooms and mixed vegetables, main veg Brussels sprouts.

We have dined here multiple times and after each experience we are reminded of why we come back whenever we can. This place exemplifies fine dining. The service is top notch, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere brings it all together.

Great Restaurant for Dinner Date To Aronoff Center
We had dinner before the Cincinnati Opera performance at the Aronoff Center . Jeff Ruby's was prepared to not only serve us but get us out on time for the performance. They are "in step" with the events across the street from the restaurant and know how to get the food served in a timely fashion. We tried the filet mignons which were great. Steak is the specialty at the Jeff Ruby Restaurants and they DO a great job of preparing this.

I was given a gift certificate is why we went. I just wanted to see what it was all about. I thought the food was good but how can a steak alone cost 66.00? It's was nice but I cannot see paying that much sorry. We were sat at a very small table for two by a window which was ok seems you could afford a little bigger tables my husband was squashed up against a pole no room to move. I guess it's just not the place for us.

They never disappoint! We always order the ribeye and its always perfect. The staff is wonderful and go out of their way to make you happy. We only dine there on special occasion as its pricey for our budget, but, its worth every penny!
