    Our servers as amazing!this was our first visit, and definitely not our last. We celebrated my sweetheart's birthday and they decorated the table, took our picture and gave him desert which is pretty standard, however our server went the extra mile in the plate decoration when learning about our love of minions which left a lasting impression! The steaks were really prepared excellently, but the side items needed a little less salt. Over all a great experience!

    It was our anniversary. The table had rosé petals on the table off to the side. The wait staff was extremely friendly and prompt with the delivery of food. They were attentive; but not bothersome. We had the petite filet, broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes along with a Caesar salad that we split. Because of our anniversary they provided dessert, and a free photo at the table. It was one of the best anniversary dinners we have had. We would recommend this restaurant highly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 6/20/2013
    Ruth Chris is elegant, fabulous service, but for such an expensive place, they do not cater to those with special needs or dieters . Apparently most dishes ie vegetables and sides as well as most entrees are preprepared . You can't get mushrooms without beef broth, or crabcakes without butter and stuffing ,or stuffed mushrooms without breading or butter. I am very plain eater as well as a vegetarian and aside from the great salads there is little I can eat there. The waiters also failed to inform of the correct ingredients in the dishes. If you like richer food, and have no special needs this is a great place. If you have special dietary needs or requests be very wary , especially food allergies.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Steaks were disappointing. Ordered both medium. One was medium well and one was medium rare. Pricey menu but that was expected assuming the food was excellent. Got a larger filet two nights later at a local bistro. Filet was larger, better, cooked right and came with potato and vegetable - $22 less than Ruth's Chris. Baked potato was slightly yellow - not white and fluffy. Must have been warmed over. Creamed spinach was very good. If you want to keep your salt intake low, be sure to advise not to add salt - especially on the steaks.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House is definitely a wonderful place for spacial occasions. We were literally treated like a king and queen in large leather high-back chairs and the servers all took the time to chat and not rush us even though it was Mothers Day. My wife enjoyed her favorite cut of steak - a ribeye - and my striped bass was perfect!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    upon arrival we were immediately seated slightly ahead of our reservation and presented with an extensive wine list. I ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and my wife a mixed drink which was served promptly. The wine was VERY cold and my wife's drink VERY strong which on a Friday night perhaps but not a Wednesday! She ordered an additional glass of tonic to dilute and I a draft beer to buy time for my wine to 'warm-up'. The atmosphere was very nice and not crowded however, it was very noisy although that could have simply been from the shape of the covered table which captured every word of the tables around us. We both ordered steaks; mine a Ribeye and my wife a filet along sides which went down well. good food but not great!

    The food was just all right. Lobster was not firm, BBQ shrimp were not Cajun as advertised, and sides were not anything out of the ordinary. When we told the server about the food she went to the manager who offered a piece of cheesecake. Bill was $550.00 with 2 bottles of wine. Way too expensive for the value. Nice room but the food won't bring us back.

    We loved the service and food was excellent, beautiful decor. However prices very high and very limited food selections for non meat eaters especially anyone on special diet. I had a lot difficulty making choice that was fish, and veggies with no butter or oil. Too little to choose from and was told many dishes preprepared in butter or oil. If they expand menu and make dishes to order would be a regular, even at those prices. My husband doesn't eat meat, but eats fish and chicken or pork and also felt his choices very limited too. Would love to see an expanded menu , especially more grilled or broiled fish or seafood and simple vegetables.

We were seated in the middle of the room, and the noise from every direction made it difficult to talk. I would give them this information when making resevations next time, so it could be taken into consideration when seating us.

    Little bit disappointing. This is our favorite restaurant so we know the menu very well. Our food has always been cooked to perfection and the service has always been extraordinary. Unfortunately the sweet potatoe casserole was burnt. We served about a quarter of the plate in each of our plates and when we tasted it we realized the crust was black and had a bitter taste. We mentioned it to our server who offer to replace it but had to discuss it with the manager first. When she returned she said that because we had served some of it she could not replace it. This is highly unusual of this place since we have had so many wonderful dinners always with excellent service and food quality. We will return but will check the food first.
