    Wife and usually go to the boston location for anniversary and date night. Providence. blows them out of the water with food and service. Our server jarred treated us like royalty. such great service I may ask him to be my best man when my wife and I renew vows. steaks are perfect but the star of the show is the pecan crusted sweetpotato. when god goes to pot luck he must bring this as his dish. best ruths chris on east coast and best restaurant in new England.

    My husband and I have trying to go but due to the fact that they are only open from 4-9, it's ben difficult but we finally made it. We loved the food and service but disappointed to find out that there was Valet service and we did not know about it. Prior to our visit I went on the website and asked questions about parking and there was no indication about having Valet service. THis feature should be mentioned on the website so it will help the business and also extended hours will be nice so we can go there for lunch.

    We had a belated valentines family dinner. Unfortunately the snow postponed out original celebration date. We were thrilled to have a open Table send us a reminder that it's not too late to celebrate. So great to have valet ready to take the car and get us into the cozy bar area. Service from beginning to end was top notch. But the best part was my first steak after being vegetarian for nearly 2 years. It was undoubtably the BEST piece of meat I will ever have in my life. I chose the bone in sirloin, as did my daughter. It was cooked perfectly and I am still dreaming of it. ;) We also got sweet potato casserole(dangerously delish), Brussels sprouts and baked potato. The best night we have had as a family in a very long time!!

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    The restaurant itself is nice and has a free valet and coat check. Service is amazing extremely helpful and always around. The food is also really good. Having said that it was the most expensive place I have ever eaten. We both had a steak and picked two sides which we split we also got a bottle of wine and dessert and the bill came to $240 with tip. Now the restaurant was great in every way but for a city like Providence there are more than a few restaurants of the same quality for a lot less. I honestly wouldn't recommend this place solely because of the prices but if you can afford to waste money its worth the waste.

    I had dinner with my children on valentine's day and it was super super busy. I know the kitchen must of been even more busy but out in the floor the flow was just the opposite. The servers and waiters were very calm and collected about that busy day. Excellent food, excellent service, friendly personal. I even saw a waiter take a picture for a couple ( couple requested) and he was very friendly about it. No rush to finish your meal to open up for the next party. We arrived late and the girls at the desk were very friendly accommodated us right away. I could keep on going but you might think I am getting pay for this review. My boys loved the restaurant and everyone who attended to us. Derrick, Tyler, Nick, Evelyn and Melissa were amazing

    Chose Ruth's Chris for a celebration dinner w/ ,my adult son. Service was very good, drinks and apps fine, (bisque and ceasar salad), Lyonaisse potatoes as good as ever. The main event, 16 oz. rib eyes, not so much. I ordered "medium rare to medium" and after we were served our waiter checked on the doneness, and I must have cut too close to the edge because it seemed fine. As I continued, I found that it was really more like rare to medium rare. I'll take some responsibility for that, although a fine dining kitchen really should know how to cook to desired doneness. However the steak also had an unacceptable amount of gristle in it. Really, for prime, any amount is too much, and the kitchen would see it when they cut the steak.

    I felt rushed and for a steak house the flavor was great of my filet however they over cooked my steak. The sides were ok, the au gratin potatoes were large slices of potatoes with what seemed like velveta cheese. Our waiter was great and the martini was very good. next time I would just go for a drink.

    We went for Restaurant Week on a Sunday night. Our waiter was polite, but we could tell he was less than thrilled that we were ordering from the Restaurant Week menu. It meant less tips for him. We felt a little like second class citizens as a result. There were plenty of empty tables. So if we weren't there, he would have gotten no tip from our table. Otherwise the food was excellent as usual.

    We went there for the first time last Friday night. Our waiter Justin was great. He was very informative and nice. The waiters, however, were awful! They literally threw our food on the table in silence. No "enjoy" or "be careful, plates are hot". My hubby's filet was oscar style with a crab cake, asparagus and bernaise. All of that just toppled over and a huge dallop of bernaise landed on the table. The waiter, apparently did not even notice! Awful! He wasn't paying any attention to what he was doing. It was almost as if he didn't want to be there. Servers need more training!! Had to convince the hubby to return one day. He really hated the servers throwing our food on the table. But the food and waiters were great.

    My wife and I dined here before going to see Wicked at PPAC. Oysters were delicious ... the Remoulade Sauce was much better than your typical cocktail sauce/horseradish that accompany oysters. The Ribeye with blue cheese crust was hands-down the best I've ever had. We'll be back again for sure.

Every time I looked up I could see the waitress eyeing us to see if we were finished with our food and the hostess repeatedly coming by to see how close we were to being finished. Also, had requested window seating and they didn't have it for us. But, we were seated in a fabulous corner booth....even better.

    My husband and I went for Christmas dinner. We started with a half dozen oysters, which may have been the highlight of the meal. We both had ribeyes, which were quite good, though mine was pretty fatty. For the price, however, we would have expected grass-fed beef. We also ordered two sides: sautéed mushrooms and spinach au gratin. I had a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. For dessert we shared the chocolate explosion. All together, we paid $180 including tip. The sides were pathetic. The entrees were over $40 each, and for that price, and for the low quality of the sides, they should have been included. The dessert was nothing special. For the amount of money we paid, we were really disappointed. We won't be returning.

    The ambience was perfect. The staff was ready to greet us and make our dining experience pleasurably. The crisp salads on the cold plates was a delight. The filet came out sizzling in the hot plate and melted in a buttery perfection in my mouth. The Brussel sprouts and bacon were amazing. The chocolate torte with fresh berries was the ultimate decadence to end the feast.

    Not necessarily noted for their turkey dinners, Ruth's Chris was a great experience for Thanksgiving. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the surprise take home leftovers bag excellent the next day. No one was disappointed with their food choices whether it was turkey or steak and we ordered a variety of steaks. The thanksgiving dinner was a special and very affordable and the pricier meals well worth the extra dollars. Looking forward dining here on a quieter night.
