    We came here for the first time for a date night with a show afterwards. The service was received from the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left was incredible. The food was really good, but not quite a 10/10, probably closer to a 8.5 or 9. We ordered a few oysters(10/10), a half salad(8.5/10), cowboy ribeye(8/10), filet (9/10), mac & cheese (9/5/10), the boardwalk fries (7/10), and the butter pie a la mode (10/10 - order this for sure). The cowboy steak itself was the only thing I would say was slightly disappointing based on price and expectations. Still would give the food a good rating, but the service and atmosphere were second to none. Our server, Patrick, was one of the best we have ever had - he was so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating.

    Our waiter, Eric, was extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. I had meatballs as an appetizer and my girlfriend had sushi. Then she ordered salmon and I ordered filet mignon. All of the food was delicious, especially the filet. I would definitely eat there again. One of the most expensive places I've eaten, but well worth it!

    Outstanding!!!! Jeff Ruby’s defended it’s title as the best steakhouse and dining experience in the city of Columbus. Tonight our server Patrick Cullenen wowed us with his attention to detail , fun personality, and overall fantastic service. Jeff Ruby servers always have a great knowledge of their menu and are able to give great recommendations based on what their guests enjoy. The food is always very high quality and they take absolutely no shortcuts. 5 stars all the way ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    For a high end steakhouse, this is the 2nd poor experience I’ve had at this specific Jeff Ruby’s. Love Nashville. Love love Louisville. But this location has clear issues. Dinner took a full hour to arrive…and was average at best. My daughter ordered a burger…and it looked like a single pattie from any fast food restaurant. Love the vibe at all JR’s…but the service at this one is poor. Last time for me when I’m in Columbus. Will stick to the ones that have proved their value.

    Food and service were amazing. We were out celebrating our anniversary and celebrating one of our last nights out before having a baby. Rachel our waitress was super nice and friendly. She went out of her way to make the experience enjoyable. There was an issue with our car after we had valeted it. However, the valet was super help and went above and beyond what I would have expected anywhere else. 10/10 recommend and will be back to this location!

    I prefer the Barn in New Albany or Hyde Park Grill. The prices here don’t sync with the quality of steak I had. Nothing wrong with it, just better options out there for similar or better prices.

    It was obvious to us that staff either did not have a record of our reservation, or overlooked that fact. They indicated our table was not ready when we arrived, and then soon after sat us at a table in the bar. Bar seating was fine, but I'm certain when I made a reservation a week ago, bar seating was not what we reserved. That was disappointing.

    You won’t find a better steak in Columbus! Hands down! Sushi is fantastic as well. Every time I go I’m simply impressed on their consistency! Service is first class! Only wish was I had hoped they kept their Buckeye Cake and it’s gone :(. Ask for Anthony as your waiter, known him for years and will ensure you have the best experience. Must visit for any business dinner or special occasion.

    Manager and server assistant greeted us warmly. Enjoyed cocktails, salad and king crab legs first. Filet, A5 Waygu ribeye and lobster tail were out of this world, prepared to perfection. I enjoy the Mac and cheese and asparagus but my partner did not. Complimentary birthday dessert for him was absolutely delicious. Service left a lot to be desired.
