Ruby is known for excellent beef, and our dinner did not disappoint. We were celebrating a birthday & service was great, attentive but not too much.

Two of our Steaks were very undercooked. Had to send back . Also had better service in the past . Dessert and wine was good .

The service was first class from the time we walked in the door until we finished our meal. The steak is out of this world. You won't find any better.

One of many of Jeff Ruby's restaurants in Cincinnati, you can always count on a perfectly cooked, well seasoned steak no matter what cut you order. Perfect location for dinner before or after a show at the Aronoff.

Jeff Ruby's is a Cincinnati institution. Excellent food, excellent service and great downtown location make this a must do when in the Queen City. Be sure to make reservations always.

We gave this a very low rating the first time. The manager contacted us, said the tings we were concerned about were changed, and welcomed us back. Last evening we enjoyed great service and great food. This restaurant is a bit expensive for the value, but is certainly worth dining at if you have the resources. We will go again.

Ok, have been to most of the top steakhouses, Berns, Gibsons, Lugers to name a few......Jeff Ruby's in my opinion have a better steak that Berns or Peter Lugers. Our steaks have a nice dry aged flavor, perfect crust and juicy robust tender inside. I personally really enjoy this place as the food and service are always very good. Whenever... More

From the appetizers to desert this was a great dining experience. Rib eye, Medium with a skillet of potatoes and two drinks will be worth the $100.
