    We had an amazing experience on Saturday night. The ambience was was great, with tables spaced appropriately apart and not crowded together. The service was extremely attentive without being overbearing. And the food was excellent and plentiful. We can't wait to go back!

    took my girlfriend here for her birthday and she loved it. They even spreaded rose pedals on our table which was so romantic. I was about 20 minutes late to the reservation but after a phone call, they happily pushed back my reserve time. I felt very bad for being late but the receptionist made me feel really welcome when we arrived. The food was out of the world. Our waiter Joshua did an acceptional job with his service including walking us the menu. He talked to us about the restaurant history since this was out first time dining.

    The service from Scot M. was the best. He knows when to be at the table and when you want to be left to your conversation. The food is always top notch and very consistent. From the appetizers to the Bananas Foster, we were nothing but impressed.

    The waiter was not informative enough. Chicken over cooked could have been the hot plate.asparagus with hollandaise was horrible.. The service could have been better. We ate at the eastern ave location. Because we wanted to be in the city.We usually eat at the Pikesville location .The service there is impeccable .

    We (six in our party) patronized your restaurant for my husband's birthday. The food was as expected! But this time around what made the whole experience so outstanding was our server, Monika. She was clearly VERY busy; she had a whole section of tables she was taking care of and each one seemed pretty demanding. But she handled everyone and especially our party with such grace and charm. A pet peeve of mine has always been servers who are too formal, almost unapproachable in upscale restaurants. But Monika had that beautiful combination of skill and personality that made our dining experience so unique. I hope we are able to have her as our server every time. THANK YOU, Monika, because of you our experience was really out of this world!

    The five course meal with wine was well prepared and delicious! The only recommendation would be that the meal begin around 5pm and more time allowed between courses. It was alot to digest, the body requires time to process a five course meal. Tim did a wonderful job explaining the wines from the different regions of France and made everyone welcome. Everyone I was with enjoyed the atmosphere and conversation....Thank You!

    We've dined here on numerous occasions. Our recent experience was very disappointing. We were seated on the first floor and there was a lot of activity around us, including the waiter making a special dish table side for another table and I don't think he realized it, but he was positioned right on top of our table. Our waiter was spread way too thin and could not give us the attention we expected and had realized from previous dining experiences. I had to take the check to the reception area to get the bill processed as our server was tied up way too long in another area of the restaurant. We had an issue with the bill that was handled satisfactorily, but I was disappointed in the waiters abrasive attitude regarding the discrepancy.

    My friends and I went to Ruth's Chris Steak House in Baltimore and reserved through OpenTable this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. There were 9 of us. The servers were very professional and polite. They attended to all that we needed and even after one of my friends was not satisfied with the way the steak was cooked (medium well/medium), they worked it out with her to her satisfaction. It was amazing! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to all.

    Ruth's Chris staff and management were amazing. My wife and I were there for our 10th Anniversary, and everyone was very kind. We received a personal thanks from the manager for choosing to celebrate with them, and rose petals were on the table for us. They even provided a free piece of chocolate cake for us to indulge (and that we did!). Will eat there again for special occasions, but only because I have difficulty spending that much on a regular basis. The value of food was amazing though, no complaints about the price!

    Not a place you want to walk to as there are some strip clubs on the corner with a seedy crowd roaming about definitely cab it. as far as the food its a typical steakhouse for the price range. service was par but not great, yet the staff was pleasant, the steakhouse was not so busy the service should have been better.

    My friends rave about Ruth's Chris so every once in awhile I give them another try (different locations). The downtown Baltimore location is worn and tired. This place looks like a bad dream from the 1980s. Corporate should give this place a review and a through cleaning. I've had very bad luck with meals at Ruth's. The food was much better here than previous dinings, but it was nothing to write home about. (My wife had the salmon and loved it. ) There's not an inventive selection on the menu. The steaks come covered on a sizzling platter like a slab of grease has been applied. I don't understand that experience at all. No issues withe the service which was very attentive.

    We frequent the steak house in Baltimore about a dozen times a year. This was an excellent visit and the 6 oz steak that we got with the Restaurant Week promo was awesome. Service was good although we almost got charged for the included dessert. Otherwise, we will be back for a non - promo visit because the food and service is always top nothc.

    It doesn't have to be a special occasion; Ruth's Chris makes every time special. Looking at the dark wood and the chandeliers is such a wonderful way to spend the time it takes to be served. There is no doubt the staff wants your experience to be perfect. They never hover, but they observe. The waiters are knowledgable about the background of the restaurant. When we mentioned how much we were impressed by our first waiter, years ago. this one knew his name.

    I had told the young lady who called to confirm our reservation that it was our anniversary and when we arrived we were greeted with well wishes for our celebration, the waiter wished us happy anniversary, there were rose petals on the table and a complimentary desert to share. Through out the evening the attentiveness of our server was just right, there when you needed him and always with a pleasant thought and helpful hints. It turned out to be one of our most remarkable evenings. The food was wonderful, as always, the service personable and friendly and the appreciation of our celebration made for the perfect evening.
