Had reservations this evening for my daughter's birthday. They tried to seat us right near the door at a high table. I asked to be seated away from the draft of the door since it was cold in that area and at a regular lower...table since I have a hip problem. The unfriendly small blond girl with a frowned face sat us in the back and told us we would need to leave by 7pm. Mind you it was 5:30pm. Our server informed us that we were on a time limit and should move swiftly with ordering (after he took 15 minutes to go over the entire dinner and drink menu. Our main course arrived at 6:30. I spoke to a manager since we felt very rushed, and she said she would switch some things around so we could have more time. Once we were given the dessert menus our server reminded us that we had approximately 10 minutes to get dessert. We were extremely disappointed in being rushed through our meal. My daughter did not enjoy her birthday at Jeff Ruby's because of this. This not the way you treat regular customers who usually spend $700 plus dollars each visit. Probably will not go back there. Corporate will hear from us about this.More

From the minute you walk in, you know it's going to be a fantastic dinner and evening. The atmosphere at Jeff Ruby's is very inviting. From ordering drinks at the bar, to the end of dinner the night was incredible. The colossal shrimp appetizer was...a great start. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and were delicious. The sides, truffle corn (my fav) and brussell sprouts are fantastic. Our server Jacob was awesome. He made our night. Very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back. In my opinion the best steakhouse in Nashville. Thank you for a wonderful experienceMore

There were 6 of us in our party, celebrating 2 birthdays. The food was good but not worth the money in my opinion. I actually thoroughly enjoyed my wedge salad almost more than my steak. Overall service was extremely slow and not great. Drinks were...forgotten, knives were taken away and not replaced in-between courses. For spending $1200 I believe service should be top notch and not just barely mediocre.More

The steak was great but the pre-dinner drinks were not. Five of the eight of us had martinis and they were watered down. I actually complained and our very nice waitress offered to take mine back and have it redone. The second one was also...watered down. Each of the others in my party also felt the same. So stick to beer and wine as they water down the vodka.More

We had the most fabulous first visit to Jeff Ruby's this past Saturday night. Our party of four was warmly greeted and seated right in line with our reservation. We were quite fortunate sit with Donovan as our server. He was knowledgeable, professional, attentive, and...personable. Honestly, service is half of the dining experience for me, it was evident that Donavan understands this and takes his craft well above industry norms. While dining we enjoyed oysters on the half shell, appetizer bacon, multiple steaks, salmon, brussels, mac n cheese, carrot cake, and last but not least peanut butter pie! Each dish was fantastic, our group particularly enjoyed the Bacon, brussels and desserts. I'd also like to mention Donovan's table assistant Connor, he was also very attentive and personable, they made a great team!More

I went to Jeff Ruby's for my birthday and it was my first time. My steak was delicious seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our waiter (Colton, Colby) forgot his name but was outstanding. I have visited several steakhouses around Nashville and Jeff Ruby's is at...the top of the list.More

A perfect place to celebrate your wedding anniversary! Dinner, drinks and service were spot on. The ambiance is magical - like stepping in a high end town. Would not have expected this in Nashville.

We dined for my husband’s birthday last night a party of four and have been to Jeff Rubies many times. The service was slow from our main server and we waited ten minutes to get a check. While we were there, the food was good...yet this morning three out of four of us are sick. I personally woke up all night extremely nauseous and I’m still nauseous this morning. We spent a total of $800 on four people at dinner. I was expecting much more.More

Was in the area visiting another business around dinner time. Stopped in, no reservation and they were able to slide us in. Best wagyu steak I have ever had. Other items were just as good.

This place is great! The food is delicious. The service is excellent. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We came to celebrate my besties birthday and were not disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful and our table was close to the bar where they had a...piano player who was wonderful. My only complaint is that I don’t live in TN and can’t visit this establishment more often.More

What a great evening and the food was phenomenal! Our servers Austin and Bo were exemplary and every aspect of the meal and service was beyond reproach. Cannot more highly recommend. My wife had the Steak Collinsworth and I the Bourbon filet - both medium...rare - and they were excellent. Sadly - not enough room for dessert.More

I truly don’t know what’s going on - normally these restaurants are spot on!!! Like a Ruth’s Chris or a Capital Grill with excellent, classy, high end food with amazing service - only way cooler! But this is the second time in a row that...it’s truly been average. The food quality was average. Our service - sitting at the bar I might add - was horrible. We arrived at 9pm, got our drinks. Appetizer came out at 9:30 which was finished in a flash. At 10:30 we inquired as to why other people who arrived after us were eating and we didn’t have our entrees. They immediately came back and brought lukewarm to cold food. Gross. We had a Gift card so I hate to complain but we won’t go back.More

I went here for dinner after a convention with 4 others. The place is very nice inside. The server was named Jacob and he was great. The bacon appetizer was pretty great. The shrimp cocktail was pretty good. I had the cowboy ribeye and this...was my problem. It was fairly tasteless and a bit dry tasting. Others in my group also said their steaks were less than expected. This is a high end steakhouse and I’ve been to a lot of them and this doesn’t make top ten.More
