    Had dinner at Ruth's Chris on Saturday April 5th, my first time at this specific location but not at a Ruth's Chris. The staff met my expectation but I would not say anything got my attention. The location inside an Embassy Suites Hotel does not lend itself to an intimate setting especially if you are not sitting in the main dining room. I asked for a table change to a less open/exposed section of the restaurant. The best part of our meal was the bread pudding dessert. The rest of the meal was good but not exceptional.

    This visit did not live up to the previous times I have been to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Initially everything was fine, but when my order of Spicy Lobster Bites came out as Spicy Oyster Bites, I knew that things weren't going to be like before. They did bring us out the correct appetizer, but by that time our main course was ready to come out. The main course was very good, but not spectacular, and I had to wait 15 minutes before I got a refill on any of my drinks. At the time, there were only a couple of other tables seated too. Near the end of dinner, we had an entirely new waiter come over and ask us about dessert. It was rather confusing. As for the atmosphere, it was in the lobby of a hotel, so there's that...

    My wife and I took our twin boys here for their 15th birthday. Our waiter was outstanding. Sadly I had to return my ribeye as I ordered it medium and it was medium well to well done. My son's steak was also over done. They graciously brought me a new steak and brought complimentary desserts for the boys and also to me and my wife. The manager apologized for the steak being overcooked. We were treated extremely well, but for what we paid for the dinner for four, i expected better food. it was good, just not memorable. i usually go to Hal's or Bones and this just does not compare, foodwise. Our service was impeccable, which saved the evening.

    The food was excellent. Everything was above par until the steaks came out. I ordered my steak medium and my wife ordered hers medium well. When the runner delivered the steaks to the table I asked if he was sure the steak on my plate was meduim and not medium well. The runner was clearly wrong. We had the same cut of steak but the medium well steak was significantly shorter. I assume because it cooked longer. The steaks were about the same circumference. We had to cut into the middle of the steak to verify that was the case but who wants to ruin a $50 piece of meat and let the juice escape. I know it sounds nit-picky but for the price you pay I would expect them to get everything right. I would gladly go there again.

Excellent recommendations and perfect service. Thanks for the complimentary desert - it was a nice gesture. If you go there for their steaks, i also suggest you try their lamb chops. 3 huge ones, suculent and delicious!

    My husband and I were in Atlanta for a get-away--a nice dinner, a concert, and an overnight stay. We decided on Ruth's Chris in Buckhead and it was an excellent choice! Since it's in a hotel there's valet parking which is free if you get your ticket stamped at the restaurant. We were seated in the atrium area of the restaurant and the ambiance was fantastic. We did dine early, but hopefully this would be the same if there was a rush. We had SUCH an attentive server--he was out of this world, and the food was perfect! I would highly recommend this location of Ruth's Chris.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 3/20/2014
    My wife and I have dined at a number of Ruth's Chris steakhouses across the country. Kind of like a ultra high end McDonalds, they are very consistent in their service level, quality and cut's of meat and food serving temperature. At this location the service was great but the cut of our filet's was not up to the standard we have seen previously seen and one of our medium rare steaks was over cooked and one was undercooked. Maybe it was just a bad night, but with many other choices nearby, we will try somewhere else next time.

    The food was pretty good. I had the new York strip which was excellent. The cream spinach side was blah. My husband had the chef special scallops which were nice size and flavorful. The drinks were very good as well. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. I would go back. However, I prefer Morton's more and they would be my first choice.

    Excellent food and great service! Stood up to Ruth's Chris standards. Steaks were cooked perfectly, waiter was excellent. Ambience is slightly lacking given the location inside the Embassy Suites lobby, but if you can ask for a table in the dining room, it is much quieter and more in line with a Ruth's Chris experience.

    We have been to Ruth Chris a few times in the past for special occasions and this time I was not as impressed with my steak. It was a little under cooked so sent it back and then it came back well done when was wanting medium. Flavor wasn't as good. Waiter was very nice but forgot things at times. I think we prefer Centennial location better.

    I was a little disappointed that I had to wait for over 30 minutes to be seated when I had a reservation. Was also disappointed that this establishment allowed individuals who disregarded the dress code to dine at this restaurant, when it clearly stipulates this on a sign posted on the wall. I am addressing this issue, as the other establishments follow this standard as it is to be a fine dining experience. Other than that the food was delicious and the staff was courteous.

    The food was good, however the when I ordered my entree the wrong side was brought out and I didn't have the time to wait on another one. Therefore the item had to be taken off my bill. It also took a long time to get the waiter's attention for refills and such. Also the noise level from the hotel was not pleasant at all, but I don't know if that can be helped.

    Waitress only checked on us a few times. Food was okay but not well explained. For example shrimp and Grits was not the typical shrimp and grits. The grits had pork bacon in them. What was interesting is we had just asked the waitress to not bring us a side that included bacon. She never put one and one together to determine we could not have bacon. Food was acceptable for the price, so no complaints there. The service and experience of the wait staff did not match my other experiences at that price point.

Even thought hey had a limited menu and were very short staffed...we had a lovely lunch Our hat is off to this restaurant. We can always count on their delicious Lobster Bisque, huge baked potatoes and divine creamed spinach. We did not have steak for lunch, but they prepare them perfectly. if you are in a city and don't know where to eat, you can always count on a great meal at Ruth's Chris

    From the moment we arrived, the service at this hotel based Ruth Chris' restaurant was fantastic. Wait staff was professional, friendly, helpful, attentive but not over bearing. Best of all, we were allowed to split plates without a charge as the portions are extremely generous. Kudos especially go out to our lead waiter, Donald, a local talent, who made our experience one that we will not forget. If you are ever on Peachtree Road near Lenox Square, then this is the best steak we have ever had in this area of top steakhouses (Bones, Mortin's, New York Prime, Capital Grille, etc.). We will be back!

    I scheduled a reservation to celebrate my boyfriend's 30. The restaurant honored my requests by putting us in a quieter part of the restaurant. Once we arrived at our table we found a birthday wish on a card for him. The waiter, Conrad was informed that it was his birthday and made some great choices for entrees and cocktails. Conrad was very professional and attentive to our needs. The reviews we read previously had us shy away, but someone else recommended it and I'm so happy we decided to give this restaurant a chance.

    for the price is that they charge Ruth Chris is way overpriced in my opinion the food is just a subpar nothing specialin my opinion I recommend bones steakhouse or Flemings steakhouse. The waiter we had was horrible. when we ask for a to go box he just came over there and set them on our table another waiter who just came by and boxrd everything up for us. And we spent over $200 for this mediocre food at best. I would not recommend this place nor will I ever be back. only a 95 year old woman would think this food taste good, everything had too much salt on it and the steak was $36 and not nearly worth it very small in size

    Our meal and service were wonderful, in fact, exceptional. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve. The ambience left something to be desired. My husband and I were seated at a table for two in the front corner of the restaurant. This was fine. However, directly beside us were a young couple and their two young daughters. I am increasingly frustrated that young parents will bring children out to an expensive, adult restaurant and allow them to get up and walk or run around and speak in an "outside" voice. We spent a tremendous amount of money on this meal to be constantly interrupted by their family conversation. We routinely ask for a table away from small children, but the restaurant was crowded and we let it go. Wish we hadn't.
