    Overall, Ruth's Chris delivered again. The service was oustanding, the ambience wonderful. Unfortunately, we can't rate this experience Outstanding because of the food. We're looking forward to our next experience with Ruth's Chris, likely at our next special event. The food: This was the first time we ordered the Porterhouse for Two ($79.99). Overall, we were under-impressed with the steak. It wasn't terrible, but we would have preferred to get a NY Strip and a Filet and split them both over the Porterhouse. The Filet and NY Strip would have been about the same price (if not a few dollars cheaper).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. The food was excellent but the service was poor. This was very unusual for Ruth Chris. The service is usually excellent and the servers are very attentive. On this night the waitress had several small tables and large group of about 16 people. When this group came in the attention was turned to them as if the rest of use were not spending a good penny to eat here as well. Ruth Chris is one of my top five restaurants to dine in.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    The food, as usual, was very good. The service left a lot to be desired. The waiter, who was very busy, forgot to do the little things, like offer the pepper mill for the salads. He also disappeared for long times, therefore one couldn't get refills on things like water, order dessert or get the check. We will come back -- but when compared to Morton's the service needs to be improved.

    Very good food and service, but pricey and not a great value for the money. Table was waiting for us, and was in a quiet area as requested on our reservation. Staff was aware of food allergy of one of our party, and that was appreciated.

    I think RC is absolutely great; However, I would like to make one recommendation; Section off one area that is strictly coat and tie away from the kids, no-coat, slacks and open shirt, section. When I spend $300 taking the wife, or $500 for the wife and a couple of guests, and we are dressed coat and tie, it kills the moment when the table occupants next to you are dressed for Ruby Tuesday.

    Ruth's Chris is always incredible. I've had tiny service issues on rare occasions, but the food always makes me forget all about it. This time the service was terriffic, as is the case 90% of the time.

    Having dined at this location several times, with the exception of my two colleagues needing to send their steaks back (the servier switched up their meat temp preferences) which they replaces in short order, it was outstanding as usual. We'll definitely go back!
