Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse - Louisville

Steak
The first & only steakhouse of its kind in the Louisville area, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse serves only dry-aged USDA prime beef. While steak is the foundation of the menu, Jeff Ruby's promises to please seafood lovers as well with its raw/sushi bar & seafood entrees.
Jeff Ruby regulars will be pleased to know that their favorite signature items from the Cincinnati restaurants will be well represented in Louisville. The bone-in filet, the 7 cheese baked macaroni, creamed spinach, truffle flake, & of course Jeff Ruby's secret recipe cheesecake are all staples of the Louisville menu.
Styled after the great NY steakhouses of the 1930s & '40s, Jeff Ruby's promises to be as pleasing visually as it is to the palate. French art-deco design, plush mohair upholstery, hand-selected antique furniture, and cinematic crystal chandeliers anchored by a 1950s-era antique are featured in the Starz series Magic City and the 32-foot wall of wine.

    Steaks, service, and ambience are excellent. Chicken wasn’t up to par, but they made it right, which was expected. We had a great evening. Definitely one of the best steakhouses in Louisville.

    It was our first visit to Jeff Ruby’s in Louisville. We have been to the Lexington location several times. They differ in many ways, but the Louisville location has old school charm. We stayed at Galt House so I appreciated that there was an entrance from the hotel and appreciated manager Josie telling us that. Josh and Abe took great care of us. Josh was very, very attentive. We will absolutely visit that location again.

    Food and service were excellent as always. You're paying for the experience but it's hard to give a full value score with the soaring prices. The top of the line otherwise, hands down the best steakhouse in Louisville.

    While our waiter was wonderful, it took 3 times for my petite filet to be cooked as requested, medium. It was delivered, blood red, almost raw initially. On the third try, the filet was now ruined - over-cooked, well done, tough filet. I took 3 bites and left the rest. While all 4 steaks were brought out simultaneously, not one of the serving staff asked for any of us to ‘cut into the steak’ to ensure it was cooked properly. It then took 5 minutes to flag the down waitstaff down in an effort to have the filet cooked properly. Needless to say, By the time my steak arrived for the third time, the rest of my party had finished their steaks. While the restaurant and on duty manager took care of that part of the bill, a guest should never be asked how they can make it right; to coin a phrase “just do it”. Don’t offer a gift certificate, just issue it. This was our 44th wedding anniversary celebration and it was one of the worst meals I have ever had. Jeff Ruby’s needs to take a lesson from Mahogany’s in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In good conscience, I cannot and will not recommend this restaurant. It is also noteworthy that several other patrons that night were experiencing issues with their steaks/lobsters.

    Typically my experience has been amazing at Jeff Rubys. This particular evening, the service was very slow and they had computer glitches which I realize can happen at times. But it did take us literally 40 minutes to get our check because of the glitch. I had a bone in ribeye, and it wasn’t as good as usual and the vegetables tasted a little bland. I’m not the type of person that complains, but it didn’t live up to the typical Jeff Rubys experience. I’ll still come back though.

    I eat here a couple times per year and it's my go-to for entertaining out-of-town business guests. They have some of the best steaks available and I've never had one that wasn't cooked perfectly. The wait staff are professionals. Service has not been affected by Covid. Also, there's something on the menu for everyone except vegans. The raw bar is terrific, asparagus cooked perfectly and lightly seasoned, and some of the best mac n cheese ever. My guest last night was really impressed with the smoked old fashioned. It was quite the presentation. Random Thursday at 8:15 was packed. There were seats at the bar, otherwise, better get a reservation.
