This restaurant has become a favorite. Great food. Does not feel like a chain. Elegant service. Excellent servers. One of the servers, Muhammed, is a star. There is also a gentleman who has done the valet parking for years who is a gentleman and a delight, whom we look forward to seeing each visit.
The last two times we have dined here, one small problem of the music in the dining room being overwhelmingly loud, which took away from the experience. We did ask our server if she could turn it down, and she did, but someone turned it back up later. Just too loud for this nice a restaurant.

From the host to the server everyone was well trained. It was our anniversary and everyone went out of their way to say something. Food was great as always. Quality and cooked perfectly.

Outstanding dining experience!
My family and I were in town for my daughter's college graduation. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel, so the restaurant was convenient. Our dining experience lived up to many of the reviews I had read. Not only did they accommodate a late change in our reservation, but served us a spectacular dessert in honor of my daughter's graduation and her birthday. Our waiter was extremely helpful with his menu recommendations, and service was impeccable. My kids and I each had a petite fillet, and we all agreed it was one of the best meals we had had together.

From the moment we got to Ruth Chris, this was a different experience from others we have been to. Most notably the service is beyond exceptional from the moment you pull up your car to the moment we left. Food, as always at Ruth's Chris, was wonderful.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food prepared exactly as ordered, waiter was excellent, explaining menu, warning of super hot plate. When the waiter was serving another table a waitress noticed we needed coffee and showed up with the pot and she was not asked. Great service. I like the large table setup for two. Parking at Northbrook IL is great. We most likely saved $75.00 by not going into Chicago with Stick-um-up parking and red light cameras.

A nice anniversary celebration. Our waiter, Mohammad, was excellent.
Specialy treats at the end of dinner were also nice.

I believe that the food at the Northbrook location is as good as it gets; never disappointed

Good as usual
A great dinner to celebrate my son's 17th birthday. The steaks are always good and the service was great as well..
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go to restaurants 3-4 times a week, and lots of different ones. Here the steak was perfectly cooked and tasty, salad yummy, good wine.This place is head & shoulders over every other steakhouse. It was our anniversary and you would've thought we were king & queen by the special attention we received from every person there - hostess, server, bus boys. A special dessert free of charge. This place is going to be where we go for EVERY special occasion. And by the way, my husband's fussy, but he didn't have a single complaint! Well, one. He didn't like our original table and asked to move after everything had been set up. The staff sprung into action with a smile and moved us to the booth of our choice, and all was well!

Always a pleasure
As usual we had a great dinner at Ruth Chris. Modesto was our waiter who I have had before and he was great again. This was the first time bringing my children 10 and 7. The restaurant had a nice kids menu and the pace of the meal was good for children. The Porterhouse for two fed my wife myself and my daughter. It is a great cut of meat. Overall a very nice evening.

Great Food & Excellent Service
Great food and EXCELLENT service! We took my 12 year old son for his birthday and they had decorated the table for him, gave him a nice card, and a great dessert on the house.
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The place had a nice and relaxed atmosphere. It's very romantic and the food was delicious. The ribeye, was moist and tender. The service was very good. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly.
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
The reigning BEST!
I eat at steak houses at least three times a week. Chicago has some of the best but Ruth's Chris reigns supreme. The fillet mignon could be cut with a fork. It was so tender and tasty, I've never had better. The creamed spinach is also the best I've ever had. Add the shoestring fries and the meal can't be topped. But wait! The chocolate explosion is over the top.

Second bout of bad service
We frequent this location and are normally thrilled with every aspect. This is the second bout of bad service. We ordered our appetizers and salads and our server was then MIA for more than 30 minutes so we got our steaks an hour later. If it weren't for the backup server and other servers who recognized us as regulars we might have waited another 30. We made the management aware as we were leaving so hopefully we will be honored in our request for specific servers that we know are great at what they do. Peter the valet is one of the best in the business.

My friends, wife and I have been touring the steak houses of Chicagoland and this is one of the best!

We've been to Ruth Chris a few times, and we've also gotten take-out from Ruth Chris. As usual, the food was delicious. We took our middle-school aged sons with us, and felt the restaurant is kid-friendly. It's expensive, so we typically go on only special occasions.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, the food was fantastic, as was our server. One of our favorite places!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great steaks, as always
We were celebrating a very special occasion (which I noted in our reservation, and told details to our server), and asked for guidance on sparkling wines. Our server, while polite, was not proactive, nor offered valuable assistance with wine selection. Additionally, his reserved demeanor detracted from our celebratory experience.
The food, as always was exceptional. The steaks inspired school-girl-like giddiness!

Always great meals. The last two times steaks were very slow to come. We will give it another chance but if we have a third timing issue we may have to frequent another steak purveyor.

This restaurant has solved the problem of noise by having smaller dining rooms instead of one large space. And if they are playing music, as so often restaurants are these days, it is not overwhelming conversation or delicious food well served.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ribeye was a bit tough this time but overall the food and service are always top notch. I usually choose the "combo" with salad, entree, side and dessert as the best value. I love the filet mignon cooked in butter. Even sharing sides, my husband and I usually have leftovers to bring home. We mentioned his birthday and he was treated to dessert.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
special occasion winner
I had dinner with my dad to celebrate his 86th birthday. We had a flawless meal. It reminded what I have been missing since I was last there. Superb!

Consistently great food. Never had less then great meal no matter what we have ordered.

Great Anniversary Dinner!
My husband and I went here for our 16th Anniversary. We sat in the bar and had the most wonderful waiter, John. From the momment we sat down until the dessert plates were taken from our table our food and service were nothing but perferct. Thank you John for making our anniversary so special!

My husband took me there for my 59th birthday dinner. The food was excellent and the wait staff was excellent as well. The manager and assistant manager came over to say happy birthday which made the dinner even more special. They even put happy birthday confetti on the table which was a very nice touch! Great place!!!

My wife and I were there for our 30th wedding anniversary. The steaks were excellent and the service was very good as well. We both has rib eye's, soup, sides and dessert from the chef's selection for $51. The meal was worth every cent.

We came for my husband's birthday
We came for my husband's birthday and to celebrate my son's upcoming bar mitzvah. They had the table decorated (subtle but a great touch) and provided a special dessert to both of them. The server was very kind in congratulating them both. The food is always delicious. If you get the filet and don't like it red in the middle, order it butterfly. We did that and it was delicious.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We appreciate that the staff went above and beyond in making our birthday celebration extra-special. The birthday girl loved every minute of it! All of the food was perfect; our group had several dietary requests and they were all addressed and fulfilled. The Ruth's Classic meals are a good value. The only suggestion I would make is to change up the dessert. The flourless chocolate cake was way too rich for our group. Plain fruit could be an alternative that can be offered.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I were celebrating a mere 1 month wedding anniversary. The food as always was to die for, waitress- fantastic. She went out of her way to make us feel special, even bought us dessert for our celebration. My only concern was our reservation time was at 5:30, and the noise level was non existant for about 30 min. Made it very uncomfortable to have a conversation, as all diners were seated in the same area.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night! Great food.
What a wonderful night!! Amazing food, service & drinks. Was pleasantly surprised.

We are frequent diners at Ruth's Chris, and this most recent trip was as good as ever. We were there celebrating my husband's birthday. The food was wonderful, and our server was outstanding. She went above and beyond to get us what we wanted.
We'll definitely be back.

Food was delicious. Great deal if you choose a price fixed dinner. Portions were generous and great tasting. Wait staff was superb and give special attention to detail. I had special requests and they accommodated me with ease. Will definitely go back to the Northbrook location and recommend it to others.
