Overpriced, well presented, mediocre food.
This place is only half-way good if someone else is footing the bill. The food is WAY over priced, is presented far better than it tastes, but the waiter will practically do everything but chew your food for you. The beer selection is very bad and the steaks are worse as the rub on them is far too salty. Potatoes were good, but that was it. The vegetables were over cooked and nearly flavorless. There is no way I'd recommed this place unless they have money to burn. Too many other better restaurants in Cincinnati to waste time with this one.
Jeff Ruby's is the best.
My wife and I went to Jeff Ruby's downtown to celebrate her 5 year anniversary being cancer free. I only mentioned the reason for our night out in passing while making reservations. The hostess seated us, then congratulated my wife. The Maitre'd stopped by our table to congratulate my wife. Our waiter was outstanding in his attention to detail.
The food was out of this world. I had steak, my wife had fillet mignon. Everything cooked perfectly to order. No detail was overlooked. My wife was presented with serving of cheesecake with a candle at the end of our dinner. Again, a small, but thoughtful touch. I woould highly recommend Jeff Ruby's on Walnut.
still the best steak in town.
it is a bit pretentouis but it more than makes up for it with the steaks and the service. they treat you the same if you are in a tux or very casual. the portions are hugmonious abd everything is a la cart. their 28 oz bone in rib eye is the best flavor i have ever experienced in red meat. I always order the same so i can't speak of other entres. my friends have always been happy with their choices, including the lamb and the dover sole. it is a must if you are in a steak mood!!!
JEFF RUBY A LOCAL HERO THAT WE CAN ALL LOOK UP TO... THANK YOU JEFF!!!.
JEFF RUBY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A LOCAL HEROS TO ME AS FROM THE FIRST TIME I HEARD OF HIM STEPPING FOWARD TO HELP THIS PERSON OR THAT FAMILY. THEN WHEN THE POOR KID THAT WORKED AT ONE OF HIS PLACES WAS MURDERED HE STEPPED RIGHT UP AND OFFERED A REWARD. NOW TO TOP IT ALL, AND PUT A DOUBLE MURDER IN HIS PLACE, WHEN MOST PEOPLE PROBALY STILL KISS UP TO HIM AND FEED HIS EGO. WHAT YOU DID WAS THE RIGHT THING AND THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DONE, SINCE YOU COULD'VE LET HIM EAT AND MADE ALL THAT EXTRA MONEY FROM HIS PARTY OF PEOPLE. I'M JUST A NOBODY COLLEGE STUDENT FROM NORTHERN KENTUCKY AND WILL PROBALY NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO EVEN EAT AT YOUR RESTAURANT ANYTIME SOON, BUT I AM GOING TO RECOMMEND ALL YOUR PLACES TO EVERYBODY I COME ACROSS. THANKS AGAIN FOR BEING A LOCAL HERO THAT US YOUNGER GUYS JUST GETTING STARTED IN LIFE AND BUSINESS CAN LOOK UP TO. WITH MUCH RESPECT, C.W.RICHARDSON
I commend you for exercising your right as a business owner to choose who you serve in your restaurant! I do not believe it was a racial decision. I agree with you, I believe he murdered his ex-wife and Mr. Goldman. Because of your action, the victims are remembered, which is an issue the media falls short. Thank you for standing up for your rights!
Damn Good Place to Eat and Be Scene.
This steakhouse has wonderful scenery and it's a great place to go for socializing. I've seen Jerry Springer there, as well as other Bengal football players. As for the food, it's to die for. The Lump Crabmeat is the best appetizer there, in my opinion. As for dinner, you can't go wrong with any of the choices and their proportions are plentiful. Any of the steaks is awesome. Last, but not least, you will not be disappointed in the hostess staff nor the bartenders. ENJOY!!!
Best King Crab in Cincy!.
For someone who doesn't eat steak, I was wary about going to Jeff Ruby's for the first time. However, the other menu items are absolutely delicious - the crab legs and sides are amazing. The service is always exceptional and the bar scene is great with live music. It is a delight to eat at Jeff Ruby's and well worth the money.
A lively, special-occasion spot from one of the city's most successful restaurateurs.. The Scene Dinner will be for a special occasion for most, given the pricey items on the a la carte menu. With live music in the front wafting through the large dining room, it's perfectly designed for people-watching.
The Food The raw bar martini, a super-fresh, icy cold appetizer of clams, oysters, shrimp and crab legs, is served in a giant glass. Classic steak toppings such as bearnaise, garlic butter and sauteed mushrooms are offered, but the Hudson Valley fois gras and white truffle butter are guaranteed to take your gastronomic pleasure to an entirely new level. The chocolate illusion dessert--a bittersweet chocolate "tenderloin" filled with raspberry mousse, white chocolate "mashed potatoes" and crisp sugar cookie "onion rings"--is deliciously over the top.
