    The valet Parker’s were very friendly and directed us to the handicap entrance where a hostess met us. The table they were going to seat us at was very loud so they nicely moved us to a more quiet table because I am hearing impaired. Our food was delicious. We had Wagyu meatballs,I had lamb rack, and my friend had The Godfather sushi. The bread and butter also was great. Our waiter got distracted and did not check on us much and forgot our bread. The music overhead was much too loud, especially with the piano player. Prices are e hot it’s t (which we knew going in) and I would not return. I was glad to have a gift card which covered most of it.

    Drinks were excellent, made accommodations for my wife who was pregnant. Appetizers- meatballs - good yes anything special not really. Crab cake - very good would recommend. Main course - Father’s Day special- Tomahawk Ribeye - This is where I was disappointed. For $140 I expected MUCH better. To be honest, regardless of price value it was not even in the top 10 steaks I’ve had - not even close. The outside edge about 1.5” in was severely over cooked - medium well to well. I know they are known for a good char but it wasn’t that - it was gritty and burnt taste lack true flavor. I only ate half while there and 1/3 of what I ate was pure grisle; un-chewable. For a grade a prime supposedly high quality cut of meat, this did not deliver. I probably should have went with one of their standard menu options… My wife was happy with her meal - she made the comment she couldn’t tell the difference from Longhorn but I take her words with a grain of salt. Our sides - lobster Mac and cheese. I thought this was pretty good - baked varieties are not my favorite - I typically like a creamier Mac and cheese - this had more body and a tad gritty than I’d prefer but it was still very good flavor. The service however was absolutely outstanding. Very tentative to our table, very knowledgeable. I don’t blame the ribeye on him - it could have been a fluke and just a bad steak 🤷‍♂️, unfortunately, to be honest - I don’t plan on going back anytime soon.

    Food was amazing, and service was spectacular! Our server, Thomas, was friendly, incredibly helpful with menu advice, and very accommodating. He treated our 12 year old son with just as much respect as he did the adults in our party - which isn’t always the case at other restaurants. My husband and father both concurred it was the best steak they’d ever had.

    Third time, always amazing. David (manager) was so sweet with my son, very engaging and pleasant. Our server, I think Mike, was amazing too. Very attentive and polite I didn’t like the baked potato though. Giant potato for $8, not very shareable. Should be a loaded potato maybe? Not just sour cream and butter. Won’t order that again. My husband got the steak/scallop that was a special and he ate the whole thing which isn’t normal. Everything was amazing and we will be back again and again.

    I reserved a table for my husband and I on his 30th birthday. The restaurant knew about this as it was acknowledged when we sat down. I really enjoy the decor and ambiance of the restaurant but unfortunately we were seated downstairs where the decor and service we received was markedly different compared to our prior experience dinning upstairs. I am really disappointed by how the Jeff Rubys staff handled this special occasion dinner. If you want to have a nice dinner when celebrating a special occasion I would look elsewhere.

    Had an amazing meal in the club room. Thomas was a great server. Bread-served warm and truffle butter was delicious, wedge salad was huge and had a copious amount of blue cheese dressing. The pork belly served with wedge really made the salad special. 8oz filet was cooked perfectly and very tender and tasty. Sides-potato and asparagus were large and good, the best part was the peanut butter pie dessert. Beautiful presentation and the amount of pie was incredible, easily shareable and then some. Overall, a magical experience, can’t wait to come back.

And the food was absolutely delicious! Steaks cooked perfectly! The sushi appetizers were the top 3 thing ever eaten on most of our lists! The drinks were spot on!! And to save the best for last…that butter pie…oh my!!! Definitely the best overall dining experience around!!

    Paul and team were fantastic! They were quick to acknowledge the 16th birthday celebration for our son and continued to make him feel special in an age-appropriate manner throughout the evening. I had a few special requests and Paul met them with humor and grace. My Filet Tirico was delicious! He’ll know what I mean. This was not our first time dining at Jeff Ruby, but it was for our two sons and the experience lived up to the “hype” for them. Thanks for a special evening!

    Rachel served our party of 4. She was very nice and knowledgeable about everything. The ambiance there is outstanding - very luxurious and beautiful. My husbands Manhattans was very good. My friend and I had wine which we both liked a lot. I had a Sancerre and a Sauvignon Blanc - both great. Oysters for the table - all 3 types were very good. I had the Hamachi Usuzukuri - honestly it was ok, quite bland - consisted of 7 very thin strips with a slice of jalapeño and the ponzu sauce. My hubs and I split the Cowboy Steak - His end had a whole lot of fat and the cut itself was very thin we thought. The little bit of meat we did have was delicious. Our sides were the creamed spinach and fries - both great. My husband had 2 different scoops of ice cream for desert which he loved. The 3 of us split the Chocolate Bourbon cake - it was amazing. Disappointed in our steak - I am sure we will go back for something different next time.

    Could have been 5 stars if the clients could have just worn appropriate clothes. I am still amazed at the number of people that show up at restaurants in shorts, t-shirts and hats. The young women who walked in right before us had on sweat pants and soccer slides. Not ok. The food was very good and the service was attentive and what I expected. Not sure I need to go back. I can get a good steak at many other places in Columbus and not spend that much money, especially if I have to eat surrounded by men in baseball hats on backwards.

    Ambience one of the best in Columbus. Food and service was excellent and our waiter was great. Celebrated our anniversary and the staff was on top of their game with congratulatory wishes and special touches including the special plush booth and complimentary dessert. Also enjoyed the jazz music and live piano in the background a great addition. Highly recommend, and looking forward to the next visit.

    Jeff Ruby's was recommended by some great family friends who have lived in Columbus for many years. I told the assistant manager who they were and he dropped a card on the table and said "you now have a guy in Columbus". Nice touch! :) The food quality, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. Reminded me of St Elmo's in Indiana. Classic, high quality, steakhouse with excellent service. Keep up the great work and we'll be back at the next Origins Game Fair.

    Took my brother from out of town for a special dinner. He was extremely expressed. From the moment we got out of the car, until we got back in, we were treated royally. No other restaurant in Columbus (or anywhere else I’ve been recently) has service and food that comes close to matching Jeff Ruby’s. It has been several years since I’ve eaten in one of his restaurants. It’s expensive, but for me, on a special occasion, it was wonderful. Every table was filled so there must be a lot of people who have the money for this. For a really special evening, and this was a Tuesday, I highly recommend this restaurant.
