    A perfect place for a celebration. Excellent food and service that provides the right amount of attention- the wait staff made sure all our needs were met, and didn't come back every 5 minutes to see if things were OK. We were able to have a conversation without intrusion by the wait staff. I highly recommend for a celebration.

    Although I had dined at Ruth's Chris steak houses in other cities, it was my first visit to the Providence location and my wife's first overall. After a little confusion in the bar awaiting our table (we were expecting a server to take our drink order but it was necessary to get drinks at the bar), a manager came over and very graciously took our drink order which was on him. We had a very young server who was a local college student. His attention to detail, knowledge of the menu and wine list and overall presentation were superb. The food was excellent as I knew it would be. We pretty much had every course from stuffed mushrooms, entrees, a half- bottle of wine, desserts and coffees. An excellent night at Ruth Chris'!!

    First time dining here. Very romantic, especially with Waterfire going on. When we made the reservations we let them know it was our anniversary. The manager sent us over glasses of champagne which I thought was a nice touch. The steaks were excellent, well worth the money. Everything else was great too. Would highly recommend!

    All around great experience. I usually prefer independently operated restaurants, but this is just as good as any steakhouse I have been to. On par with Grill 23 in Boston,MA; however the bread basket at Grill 23 is better.

    We had dinner outside by the water. (If you are in Providence during "water Fire" celebration, book a table here for great food and great view of fires)There was a 'special' for two people (limited time) which is quite unusual for a steakhouse of this caliber. Food was excellent as was the value of the special. There fish (Ahi Tuna) was as good as their steaks. This is a chain and we would certainly try it in other cities based on this experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/6/2008
    My first experience @ a Ruth Chris's was on vacation in Hawaii. It was magnificent. Such that I would have rate it as "Outstanding a rare find" in all categories. Then, last year, I was happy to find another one while touring in Washington D.C. and once again I would have rated it as "Outstanding a rare find" in all categories. My experience the other evening, in Providence, was a little disappointing. The food was okay, the ambiance was okay, the service was not very good (the majority of the waiters and waitress were simply too young and inexperienced and/or lacked the proper training) and overall the experience was such that I will not return to that particular Ruth Chris's.

    We had been to Ruth's Chris several times in the past and had found it to be a good dining experience. The entrees weren't over the top, but the appetizers and service we're always exemplary. This time was really no different. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was fabulous, while my surf and turf combination of a petite filet and king crab legs was only okay; the steak was perfect, but the crab legs were skimpy and a bit overcooked. My date's crab cake entree was very good, but not spectacular. As usual, though, the service was quite spectacular; the staff remembered me and was very friendly and professional throughout our dining experience. I will go back to Ruth's Chris for its great location on Waterplace Park and fantastic service.

    We could not have had a better time or meal at Ruth's Chris in Providence. All of the food was fantastic and the service was truly outstanding. The staff was polite and gave us incredible service without being overbearing. Having dined at the Palm in Boston a week earlier, my family has decided that Ruth's is now our steak restaurant of choice. The Palm is a fast food restaurant compared to the quality and service at Ruth's. I will return to Ruth's many times and have already highly recommended it to friends.

    We had an excellent meal! The only negatives were - 1) the hostess had dark colored napkins with her, but did not switch out our white napkins and 2) there was a stain on the table cloth when we sat down. The steak was excellent, better than the Capital Grill!

    Our waitress was very slow and actually had us sitting with our dinner plates in front of us from 5:30 until 6:10 and then finally came over with a dessert menu. It truly was not very busy. I was a little disappointed with the dress code as I thought it should be dress clothes and no jeans. Quite a few people were in jeans and on a holiday, no less. The food was good, just slow service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    My only complaint is that they were sold out of a $40 bottle of wine that I selected. Instead of offering a comparable bottle at the same price, they offered an inferior one at the same price and a comparable one at $48. I think they should have offered the comparable wine at the $40 price. However, that did not mar the evening. We had a lovely meal with a party of 6 including two teenagers.

    My husband & I were celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. It was delightful to be greeted by our waitress with "Good evening Mr & Mrs Hart and happy 9th wedding anniversary". We were then given 2 complimentary glasses of champagne! It was due in part to open table that we had such an excellent celebration! The food was delicious and we were very happy they were having a "2 for $89" special!!!!! Certainly we won't go to Ruth's Chris often due to the cost! It is a special occasion restaurant in our opinion. I loved the website and have used it again (Don Shulas' 347 steak house)! THANKS, Heather R. Hart
