The very best by far. Have been to all Jeff Ruby's resteraunts and never had a problem. Service is always tops. Steaks are always the best. We tried a seafood appetizer and it was delish. Crab legs, schrimp, clams. All yummy and super fresh.

I know tht they are open late; for sure can get seated until 10ish. They book up so I would recommend calling them or going on Open Table to book. You will definitely enjoy the experience.

I see various answers about dress code, so I'm a little confused. Is a tie required for men or is a nice pair of slacks and button down collar alright. For myself is a dressy pair of pants and fancy blouse alright Many Thanks, and looking forward to what I have heard about your fine dining establishment Shevonne Birkla

Tie was not required. Several men in our party just had on button down shirts. And yes, dressy blouse and pants are good. Enjoy!
