    We eat here usually once a month just for the steak and crab cakes. The service is great. Never an empty drink and every waiter has an assistant, so you feel well taken care of. The steaks are so tender, juicy, and melt in your mouth. I've eaten at all the high end steak houses in Buckhead and still prefer Ruth Chris over any of them. The desserts are good as well, I'm usually just too full to order one.

    Made a special request for romantic, quiet seating. The room was frigid....i froze through meal and so didn't enjoy it -rushed to get through it! We were seated next to another couple who spoke loudly and could also hear everything my partner and I spoke about-----at one point, they even joined in on our conversation. NOT GOOD. We were there to 'make up' and try to work through a relationship issue. It was why I asked to sit alone---- We wont be going back but WILL visit other locations, since food is always amazing! I'm in the restaurant business -- my job is selling franchising around the U.S. This was a mistake that could have been avoided--the place was practically empty. We should have been seated as requested.

    We've been dining at Ruths Chris for years for dinner - our favorite place in the world!!! Tried it for lunch the other day - totally and utterly disappointed!!! 2 people $135 for a limited menu - We both knew what we wanted before we got there - it was unavailable - everything but the filet and deserts. Waiter was unaccommodating.. no substitutions either. My husband got seared scallops for $30 and there was three little scallops and had to finish my dinner because he felt like he was having his dinner as an appetizer. Very Very Disappointed and will NEVER EVER EVER eat there for lunch again! DISAPPOINTED NELLY!!!!!

    I was really looking for an outstanding dining experience to cele berate our 58th wedding anniversary but was deeply disappointed by the taste and quality of my filet steak. I have eaten at a Ruth Chris Restaurant a number of times all over the US and was always impresses with your steaks. However, this time I believe Long Horn would have been a better choice. My wife seemed to enjoy her steak but this was her first Ruth Chris experience so she had nothing to compare it with a previous experience.

    The food was good, but I was expecting exquisite. It was nothing I couldn't make at home. (I have been told I am a good cook, but if my food taste better than this restaraunt I should be getting paid to cook!) Service was great. I did not like how people staying at the hotel were allowed to walk through the restaraunt. It was loud and obnoxious and made me uncomfortable eating. I probably will not go back unless invited by someone else only because of the price.

    I have been to Ruth Chris before (in other big cities) as I travel a lot for both work and pleasure. As a special occasion, I took my father and several of his friends to Ruth Chris. I think the food is excellent, but found the staff to be hovering. I have found this to be the case at several of the locations. It felt like they were trying to up the bill. Overall, I feel the food is overpriced and while the steaks are very good, they are not that much better than other steak houses. For the cost, all sides should be included. I found the choices of water at the beginning of the meal annoying. Just bring water and don't try to sell us water. I found the ipad use for the drinks menu also annoying. Why not the ipad for the entire meal.

    I love Ruth's Chris! The hosts/hostesses are always friendly and welcoming. I usually prefer to grill a steak at home but we go there for our birthdays and anniversaries and the steaks are always superb! I have never had to send a meal back because it was over or under cooked. I rarely can finish a filet but I never seem to have a problem finishing my meal here. The sides are delicious and large enough for sharing. Wonderful ambiance - not noisy - easy to have table conversation. This is our "go to" restaurant for steak!

I took my wife there for our 2 year anniversary and the hostess and server both congratulated us. Steaks were cooked perfect. I would definitely go back to this Ruth's Chris location.

    Food, as always, outstanding! Service by waiter was not the best for a restaurant of this type. I believe they were very busy but that should not be the problem of the guests. Our waiter was very nice , just not that attentive. We were three women and I do not think we received the same degree of service a group with men received. I always tip 18-20% but I believe some waiters do not think women will tip as well as men & therefore, do not deliver the same level of service.

    Very disappointing for an upscale 1st class Steak House. We had a late reservation and arrived on time, but were told to cool it in the lounge until our table was ready. After 15 minutes we walked past 20+ empty tables to our seats. Waitress was seemingly unwilling to do anything beyond deliver what was on the menu (for example we asked to add an extra shrimp (and charge us for the add on) to the shrimp cocktail so that each of the five of us would have one, but were told that "they keep a close eye on that & they come packaged in groups of four - really?) Long delay between the salad and the main course, and one of the sides (Au Gratin potatoes) was ice cold. Steaks were very tasty which salvaged the meal.

    The food was great, service was good but a little slow for the restaurant/expectations. My wife got the lobster (happened to be the last one available) and it was huge - but was prepared perfectly. The butter came out later, seems to ahve been forgotten, and since lobster cools off quickly that was a slight issue, but overall things worked out fine.

The food was fair to good, but certainly did not reflect the prices. I frequent Morton's and Capital Grille and other steak house restaurants across the U.

    The night's dining was excellent, as we have come to expect at Ruth's Chris. The food, wind and dessert were fantastic as usual. Our wait staff was also very professional and attentive to our needs. I have just one suggestion regarding the Kennesaw location as I have encountered this particular situation twice as of late. When the hotel the restaurant is located in is hosting private functions the parking at that hotel is completely consumed. This forces Ruth's Chris customers to park across the street behind the hotel and restaurant and walk back to the hotel, enter through the hotel rear doors and walk through the hotel event hosting ballroom area. When this occurs Ruth's Chris should consider setting up valet car parking service.

    This was mine and my husband’s first visit to Ruth Chris, we went for our 22nd Yr Aniv. Personally I feel that the food was entirely too expensive and the steak was not melt in my mouth delicious on top of that all the sides were al la carte - on top of a $40 steak - get real. I would have been just as happy going to Outback for a quarter of the cost. My favorite item was the Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. Service was very good.
