    Came to enjoy the special that we like to get at least once a year. It hit the spot. It was busy with valentines and birthdays and the staff was calm and collected but bustling throughout. Tommy made sure we were taken care of, going so far as to omit an ingredient I don’t like in a cocktail that I was eyeing and it was just what I wanted. My husband got regular plain ol’ iced tea and couldn’t stop talking about just how good it was. Weird, I know. Tried the strawberry shortcake for the first time and it didn’t disappoint.

    Great meal and service. BIG drawback was stuck at last table by back door that people were allowed to come in due to inability to handle the stairs. Every time the door opened we were immediately blasted with cold air from the outside. If it was the summer no problem with table. But this table should not be used when temps are in the 30’s.

    Jeff Ruby's is absolutely the best restaurant I've ever eaten at in all of Columbus OH. The service was incredible, every single person was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful. Though the meal was expensive, I've paid that much or more for other meals in Columbus, but usually have left feeling I've been taken advantage of...not so with Jeff Ruby's; compared to all those other restaurants, this meal was a bargain. Every aspect, and every course of the meal was outstanding, even the simple Freddie salad. In addition to the awesome filet and lobster tail I had, I also ordered a sushi roll the "Short North Roll," and despite being ostensibly a steak house, it was the absolute best sushi I've had in Columbus, and I've tried sushi at a lot of places here in town. Even though it is large restaurant, with lots of patrons, the ambience was amazing and there was essentially no noise, one could chat quietly with no problem hearing or being heard. Well, I've run out of superlatives so I'm going to finish now...if you are reading this, you have to eat at Jeff Ruby's you will not regret it.

    A little disappointed with our visit to Jeff Ruby this time. Service was very slow with our drinks to start and by the time we got them our server wanted to take our order. No chance to enjoy our drinks for a minute. We took a chance and ordered the steak and lobster special and the lobster was over cooked, steaks were delicious as usual. When I made the reservation I mentioned by husband’s birthday and then to the hostess and lastly to our server. I was very surprised to see a charge for the dessert on our bill, in the past it has been complimentary. Then there was a mix up with our check that had to be corrected so we didn’t feel comfortable mentioning the dessert charge. We sat downstairs which was amazing and will always request it when we done again. The whole experience felt different from the usual Jeff Ruby experience.

    The lobster and filet special was delicious. Lobster was very tender and steak was cooked perfectly. Asparagus was perfect as well - just the right amount of char and crunch, and the potatoes were piping hot and creamy. Our server, Bailey was personable and had just the right amount of table touch - not hovering, but not neglectful either. All in all a very nice experience. Our whole party was satisfied.

    Came to celebrate a birthday and also mostly recovering from pneumonia for a month. Both my husband and I both said it was the best (steak and chicken) we’ve ever had there. Tommy took great care of us as always as well as our friends we brought along. Just got back from San Francisco and couldn’t find a restaurant that compared in service, taste, value, and ambience. Happy to be home!

    Great experience. Food was excellent, service was top notch. But you definitely pay for it, so be ready to dish out a small fortune for the meal. 100% worth it, but this is a “special day” sort of restaurant only.

    Food was absolutely amazing, one of the best steaks I have ever had. And the sushi was something I have never tasted! Service was overall great, all the servers were very nice and welcoming. Our main server seemed to be preoccupied with other tasks and we did see him much and were waiting for some long periods but still was very nice and respectful! Definitely would come back and can’t wait to.
