    We went to RC on Fri night for our 20th anniversary. Todd was our waiter and was great! But I ordered my steak very well cooked, received it and it was still red in the middle, had to send it back. So, my husband started the meal without me, I didn't want his food to get cold just because mine wasn't ready. When I did receive it, it was cooked the way I requested. The food was okay, certainly not worth the extravagant amount we paid for it. It was also very dark in the area we sat, noticed a gentleman had to use his flashlight to read the menu. To top it off, when we arrived and were seated, it was in a quiet area. But half way through our dinner, they seated a large, very loud table next to us. Probably won't be back any time soon.

    We come here often and it never fails to be delicious!!! I have never had anything bad off of their ever changing menu. Some on the most notable are the filet with blue cheese crust, pork chop with cherry Demi glaze, Chilean Sea bass, and the t bone. The sides are excellent and the bread pudding is absolutely the best! Love this place

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    Food is definitely overpriced, and the quality of food I had today - and the time before - not worth the money. Bread was cold and dry; the stuffed mushrooms dry and tasteless. The steaks we had were mediocre; the fries, average. The sampler dessert was okay, but again, I've had better at a lot cheaper price. I took a daughter for her birthday and we were both disappointed. The name Ruth Chris doesn't stand for what it used to anymore. Today's visit convinced me that it's time to say goodbye to Ruth Chris. I can recommend Kirby's and Fogo de Chao for wonderful dining experiences.

    Asked for quiet table and initially given loud small room. After moving tables ordered. Shrimp cocktail was nice although dressing on "greens" didn't go well with shrimp. Then meal came out too quickly. Only one steak appeared with sides, two had been ordered. Everything went back. Out came the two steaks, the original steak had been put back on grill and was now dry and well done. The second steak ordered medium rare came out medium well done. Back they went again. Finally two nice steaks and a mealy potato.

  • Nothing Special - Disappointing
    dine57
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    I've been to Ruth Chris many times. This time the service was slow and the ambience is changing - becoming more casual and not so special. The stuffed mushrooms were mediocre at best; the strip steak not medium-well but dry and too charred, and the dessert samples were bland and nothing special. I've had better steaks, appetizers, and desserts at places such as Saltgrass and Texas Land and Cattle. This time Ruth Chris just seemed overpriced and overrated. I've had better times at cheaper places.

    Wonderful service,beginning with polite,thorough answers to a few pre-dining questions(via phone) and throughout our meal (despite full restaurant).We loved the cozy,private room where our party of six were seated.Jeffrey was an efficient,courteous server who provided helpful menu advice.Everyone loved their meals. Favorites were the scallops appetizer (wonderful;will order double next visit!), ahi tuna, chilean sea bass entree and the delicious, creative pineapple bread pudding (left me wanting a second piece!)...and of course, the sizzling steaks! Sauteed mushroom side could use a bit of "oomph" (dare I suggest "more butter" or at least good evoo?). The Marine Corps veterans in our group SINCERELY appreciate Ruth's Chris generous salute!

    Foodie1914
    Dined on 5/23/2014
    I have dined here over 30 times and have always been very pleased. This was an exception. All in my party of four got their steak over-cooked and I was served spoiled meat. While they quickly replaced the steaks, and did a nice job on the second chance, there was no offer to make any adjustment, or even any offer to at least comp a dessert. Our total bill was $291. For that price I pretty much expect perfection. This did not occur. This restaurant was my number one choice in the past - it no longer is.

    It started bad and also ended BAD! We had 7:00 reservations and did not get seated until 7:45. After getting seated it took another 45 minutes to actually place our order with the waiter. Do not know if the waiter was new but he was definitely over his head in this environment as we usually go there once or twice a year and have real reservations about going there again. We asked for our desserts to go as it was around 9:30 at this time and when we got home and opened the desserts the waiter got 4 out of 5 of them wrong!

    Jennifer was our waitress she welcomed us in took us to our booth and layer rose petals on the table as we seated, right then I knew this was a very great start, she made the dinner very romantic for us. She was very knowledgeable about the types of steaks and helped us choose the rib eye. The steaks were cooked perfectly medium well the plates are served at 500 degrees to ensure you meal is hot to the last bite. Sides were asparagus, and potatoes Au gratin (fresh) is the word and perfectly cooked. Desert creme Brulee served with raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries "amazing taste" we also ordered a bottle of wine, very nice touch, Nivole Moscato D'Asti, Michele Chiarlo, 2007, Italy, I highly recommend. We look forward to going back.
