We were not disappointed...the food was fabulous and we felt truly pampered by the attentive staff. It was a delicious, memorable evening!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCan not find anything to complainCan not find anything to complain about! An absolutely outstanding dining experience. Thank you Ruths' Chris!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent steakRuth's Chris always provides an excellent steak, although I feel like it is fast becoming overpriced. The sides used to be big enough for 2-3 people...they have shrunk. As always it was a good experience but I feel that their service is lots of show and not enough go. ie: having to ask every time my iced tea needed to be filled.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food and service.Was celebrating my wife's birthday. Food was very good, as were drinks. Complimentary birthday dessert was a nice touch.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect Experience AgainOnce again we were glad we chose this Ruth's Chris for my birthday dinner. Always over-the-top service, care and outstanding food!! Starting with my glass of Prosecco all the way to the complimentary and beautiful birthday dessert, it was such a lovely experience. The chopped salad is still one of my favs, but my son had the tomato, mozzarella, basil salad and it was delicious!! I love that you all cook my steak the way I like it and it is still piping hot all the way through and perfectly juicy. My server remembered that I love a glass of Riesling with my dinner and that was a special touch. All in all, it was a perfect experience. Thanks again!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe booth was very tight.The booth was very tight. Not enough room to get comfortable. Table was too close to the bench.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIssues at "Happy Hour"I recently went to RC during Happy Hour and ate from both the regular menu (soups) and Happy Hour menu (entrees/drinks). They have removed items recently from the latter. The Manhattan is no longer there, so be prepared to pony up $14 for a short-pour martini w/ a decent bourbon. Other cocktails range from $8 to $14...on a HAPPY HOUR menu. Other places in A'ville offer as good or better quality for less.
We had two delicious soups to start with - lobster soup ($12) and tomato bisque ($11). Though overpriced, they were outstanding. Great prices ($8) for a delicious filet steak sandwich and a prime burger. But, the burger was requested medium and came out VERY WELL DONE. The waiter asked if we'd like a do-over, but wasn't worth the time.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM!We were off in a private corner so noise was low even though the place was PACKED! There were many special occasion celebrations going on - birthdays and anniversaries. We were there to enjoy great meat and we did.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWill return. Staff all acknowledgedWill return. Staff all acknowledged our anniversary.Flowers already on our table (Proflowers).3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSubstitutions Require UpchargeWe liked our meal at Ruth's Chris on Valentine's Day, but I would not order from the 'special menu' again. We were not allowed to make any substitutions, unless we wanted to pay an extra fee. The charge for dinner was $62 per person, so we did not feel it was appropriate to charge us extra just to substitute a vegetable, which I find to be ridiculous. I did not care for the creamed spinach, and wanted to substitute the sauteed spinach instead, but we were told that was not possible without an upcharge. There should be more healthy sides on the 'special' menus, so people have a better choice. Everything else was delicious, especially the filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly. The salmon was excellent, and dessert was amazing!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI thouroughly enjoyed my visitI thouroughly enjoyed my visit there. Would return but would like to see some more reasonable priced items on the menu1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
