Diner Reviews
  • "As always, the steaks at Ruth's Chris hit the spot. Always delicious and cooked to order. Not an everyday dinner spot as it will sit you back a few dollars, but worth the every once in awhile get away"

  • "Ruth Chris is quite possibly the greatest food and service combination I have ever had. We went for our 10 year anniversary. The food was cooked perfectly. The timing of the service was impeccable. We truly felt special from the time we pulled up and the valet parking,to the time we left and were greeted by the manager. It was worth every penny, and definitely lived up to its reputation."

  • "We often dine here at this Chris' location although there are others of nearly equal distance. The food in Baltimore is usually better than at the DC locations and the atmosphere is less hurried and therefore more relaxing."

  • "Perhaps we should have known better than to go here during restaurant week, but since we have been to other restaurants during this time without any problems, we figured this would be similar. Unfortunately it was not. We had a reservation for 8:15p.m. and did not get seated until 9:00p.m. When we finally did get seated, our seafood gumbo had no seafood and when my boyfriend mentioned there was no shrimp in his, the server brought him a lukewarm cup of shrimp and told him to add it to the soup. We both ordered the filet minion cooked medium - they looked completely different and both were more well, but based on the shrimp experience did not think it was worth it to send it back. For a $100 meal, it was extremely disappointing overall."

  • "I have had the opportunity to visit other locations over the years and this Ruth Chris is the best ever!! It began with a welcome that made you feel expected like one of the family. Mark was our server and he was professional yet personable. The food was fantastic and with that said the chef stopped by to make sure we enjoyed the meal. To finally the manager who made sure the experience was flawless. Overall this location should be the standard that others should try and learn from."

  • "The hostess was very understanding that we were late and she held our reservation for us. The staff was very polite. Gregg our server was awesome. He was very knowledgable about the wine. Excellent choice on the wine Gregg, thanks. The food was perfect. The steaks were cooked the way we ordered and served at just the right time, which allowed us to enjoy the wine. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. Thank you for a great dinning experience. We are already talking about going back. A little pricey but worth it."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed a birthday dinner. We were greeted warmly, promptly escorted to a romantic table and received excellent service throughout the evening. The food at Ruth's Chris is always tasty, served hot and aesthetically presented. We look forward to returning soon."

  • "This place is a good one stop shop for popular delicate treats. The grill and the steak are their tent pole. They bring in blue points, and the bbq shrimp was delicious, if not a dollar or tow extra. We had the Parduxx blend. It was pretty fantastic. The banana foster is delicious and the table side preparation has quite the dramatic flare."

  • "We had a quasi-business meeting among family and our financial advisor. Great petite filet, wine selection & ambiance. Service was prompt and discreet. Terrific location! Would not go there for a date, but for a nice social gathering, it works."

  • "food was very tasty, but service was slow when we wanted another bottle of wine with meal. the bottle didnt come until the end of the meal, so we sent it back and got after dinner drinks instead."

  • "While a bit on the pricey side, the food was amazing ~ from the oysters to salads to the yummy sides and ribeye steak that was cooked to perfection! Lovely for a special occasion. "

  • "There is nothing like a Ruth's Chris Steak--but this time, we tried the stuffed roast chicken. It was very flavorful and tasty. It was Mother's day and my wife was given roses and a $25.00 gift certificate for a future visit. Excellent bartender Leander served us prior to our meal."

  • "Attended a wine tasting dinner. The chef was able to prepare creative dishes that are not on the menu. Wonderful! The setting was intimate and the general manager was integral in the success of the evening."

  • "Scott was a remarkable server. It was my boyfriends birthday dinner. Scott catered to my daughter. Very nice"
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "There's nothing quite like the feeling that you've come to a familiar place, even if it's your first time. Ruths Chris has managed to do just that. I always know that no matter where, I'm getting the best. We had our usual porterhouse for two, broccoli, potatoes, and a couple of drinks. All was done to perfection. The service was superb...attentive, but never invasive or rushed. The location is ok with valet parking. Inner harbor is not the place to look for parking so don't bother."

  • "We have a big family and decided on this restaurant for Easter dinner for 13. My wife is recovering from a torn ACL When we arrived we were advised that the elevator to the the second floor dining room was inoperable--steps were not an option for her. The staff quickly set up their private dining room for us on the first floor that worked out perfectly especially since we also had three of our grandchildren with us. The quality of the food as well as service predictably was excellent. This restaurant consistently delivers. Our server was great interacting with our young grandchildren while being attentive to the needs of the adults. Good time had by all. "

  • "This was a one year anniversary of our first date that we had at the water street location. Its always a pleasure being at this location and the food and service are always super. We tried different sides than normal and were extremely happy with our choices."

  • "My wife and another couple had a pre-theater dinner on a Saturday evening. Service and food were great. Staff made us feel very special and got us out in time to make the show. Would recommend for a quality but not cost conscious evening out."

  • "We had a great dinner and Scott Curran was at his usual best!! Leander is as always friendly and makes a great drink!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed ourselves recently at Ruth's Chris -- we've been several times, and have always received wonderful service and great food. This particular evening, a large, ebullient group was seated near us. Our server checked in with us to ensure that the noise level was not bothering us. It was a bit loud -- nothing outrageous -- but I very much appreciated the attentiveness of our server. Will definitely be going back."

  • "I enjoy the salad and entree choices they offer for restaurant week but am always disappointed with the dessert. The cheesecake is chintzy and sort of blah tasting. I expect more from them."

  • "waitress really didn't show us the hospitality like the Ruth's in Tyson's Corner or the one in Crystal City"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food was amazing, the service from our waitress was very slow. She came over to say hello and didn't bother to take our order until 30 minutes later, she seemed forgetful and annoyed. The food was good but the for the pricing I would not be returning if the service continued to be that poor."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "There are 3 Ruth's Chris within about 30 minutes of the house and while I have not been disappointed at any Ruth's Chris my absolute favorite is Water street. Just a bit more ambiance and feel a more seasoned staff. I would just note the sweat potatoe with pecans is almost desert like and after dinner the waiter suggested it is even better with a scoop of ice cream. We were asked upon entry if it was a special occasion, again on the way to the table, both times answered no. Still at the end of the meal a happy birthday cake came out. It was delicious and appreciated my wife's bday is at the end of the month but I felt it was being suggested we would only come to Ruth's Chris for a special occasion."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Great food, service and feel. However, the decor needs refreshing. It's a bit tired looking. They need to hire a good interior designer and update."

  • "We were celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary that night. We chose Ruth's Chris because we could count on a fabulous steak, yummy wedge salad, and the amazing sweet potato casserole with pecans. The wine list is extensive with many choices for wine by the glass if you choose not to get a full bottle. Our server, Monika, was good. Pleasant and attentive without being too in your face. The manager stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our evening and food. Everything was lovely, as expected. We have been there many times and will certainly return."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary. This was my first time here and it was a very pleasurable dinning experience. It was not too crowded for a Friday night which added to the secluded feel even though there were others seated near us. The staff was very attentive and we a couple different managers stop by to inquire about our meal and if it was to our liking. Everything was prepared as we ordered. The lobster was probably the best I've had and my husband was raving about the T-bone he had. The sweet potato casserole is a must. We were told some get it as dessert with vanilla ice cream added. Our overall experience was on par with what's expected from a higher end restaurant."

  • "WE WENT FOR MY SON'S BIRTHDAY DURING RESTAURANT WEEK AND HAD THE BEST TIME. Awesome service, upscale ambience and delicious food. Don't forget to order some sides for sharing. They're fabulous!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "My son chose your restaurant to celebrate his 21st Birthday. I drove in from NY and I have to say it was very much worth the trip. The entire staff was very friendly and professional, but making us feel welcome at the same time. Service is so important as well as the food, I couldn't decide which was better. Thank you for making the night special for us"

  • "I went to another location before just weeks before, there I was blown away by service, ambiance, class and how spectacular my meal was. I made my reservation for the Water Street location, expecting the same. I did not recieve the same. My waitor was classless, the server's spilled water on our table cloth, on my self and on my family member twice (he did not replace the soaked table cloth nor accomadate us with fresh napkins) The food did not sizzle when it came out and nor was it even hot. A family member of mine ordered a beer, not only did he not pour his beer into a glass for him, he took his glass before he could pour it himself. Crumbs were never swept. It was a mediocre experienceand not worth going back."

  • "The steak and broiled tomato simply melt in your mouth. AMAZING! We had excellent service, even the manager stopped at our table to see how the meal was going for us. It's pricier than I typically can afford for dinner, but it's a steal and a must-go for restaurant week."
