The staff is attentive without being overbearing. The food is very good, though pricey, in a city with many options. Atmosphere is awesome with an art deco decor.

We were meeting friends who had just moved to Cincinnati for dinner and we had three little kids. The staff was extremely attentive and make great recommendations for dinner and dessert. Had a bone-in Ribeye and my wife had a burger which she really liked. Sides were a little small, but really good. Would definitely recommend the mac and cheese... More

Ruby's restaurants are well-known for their service and outstanding food. We had been here before. We chose this location for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner, and it was everything we expected and more. The place was sold out on a Tuesday evening(!) We never thought that a fried egg on top of a scallops appetizer would work, but it was... More

The steaks are magnificently prepared and the service is phenomenal! Pierre treated us to both a history of the restaurant as well as a friendly and collaborative menu plan that rewarded us with some of the best food we have shared here in Cincinnati.

Jeff Ruby's is a great place to have a great meal whether romantic or with family/friends. The service reminded me of what I would expect from a European restaurant! The waiters were all very polite and extremely knowledgeable. It is a bit on the pricey side, so bring your gold card, but the food and service are well worth the... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Jeff Ruby's for a friend's birthday last weekend. Service was wonderful, even for our large group of 14. Food was delicious and well prepared. It is definitely worth the cost to treat yourself every once in a while. Highly recommend for special occasions.

Visited as part of a large work group. Had a great meal and fantastic service. You just have to try the bone in steaks, they are just an amazing taste. Cannot wait for next visit .
