Last time we went to Jeff Ruby's we arrived on time and were seated promptly, but there were quite a number of guests there and service wasn't up to the usual good quality. Wasn't bad just slow and probably due to the number of customers....More

The only way this place could get better is if they reduced prices. Steaks are the best in town and as good or better than any steakhouse in the country, bar none. Sides are all delicious, especially Potatoes Anna. Raw bar is incredible. Service is...More

I was here a couple of years ago and had kept an excellent memory of the food. The experience tonight was memorable again, even above my recollection. To note: they made a mistake in preparing my order but handled that very professionally so the experience...More

Visited my second Jeff Ruby's this year - first one in Louisville. The venues could not have been more different, but both were great. The Cincinnati location is gorgeous! I am sorry I didn't take a picture or two of the light fixtures. The menu...More

The food was excellent and was only surpassed by the service. They give attention to every detail to make sure you have a fantastic time. It is pricy but well worth it for any special occasion.

My wife treated me to Jeff Ruby's for my birthday. It most definitely lives up to the hype. Excellent steak that melts in your mouth. So tender you can cut it with a fork. Their mac and cheese is to die for. I would highly...More

I know tht they are open late; for sure can get seated until 10ish. They book up so I would recommend calling them or going on Open Table to book. You will definitely enjoy the experience.

I see various answers about dress code, so I'm a little confused. Is a tie required for men or is a nice pair of slacks and button down collar alright. For myself is a dressy pair of pants and fancy blouse alright Many Thanks, and looking forward to what I have heard about your fine dining establishment Shevonne Birkla

Tie was not required. Several men in our party just had on button down shirts. And yes, dressy blouse and pants are good. Enjoy!

I'm a creme brûlée lover, although some places can be not so consistent this place was great. Best creme brûlée I've ever tried!
