    It was perfect for my son's graduation celebration. It was only three of us, but Frank (as always), made it very special. The food was prepared perfectly, the cost is reasonable for the quality, in quite a non-stuffy atmosphere! We will continue to consider this our "special occasion family spot". We have fond memories of many family celebrations there.

  • Steak great, sides okay

    Dined on 6/12/2014
    We had a nice birthday celebration. Three in the party and all three thoroughly enjoyed their steaks, we all ordered filet. We ordered a side of garlic mashed potatoes and a side of creamed spinach to share. Two of us ordered salads. The salad Caesar salad was very good, the lettuce wedge was okay. The sides were both just okay. The mashed potatoes were a little too runny and the creamed spinach was nothing special, a little on the bland side. Crème brulee was awesome. Our waiter was outstanding and gave us great attention. We had a gift card that had been given to us. Not sure we would go on our own dime, can get a great steak and better sides at some other restaurants we've tried. And, probably cost less.

    If you love a good steak then this place is for you. I am not a big steak fan however the way their steak is prepared left me wanting more. The steak melted in my mouth with every bite. I can truly say that I have never experience anything like that before. Most of the times steaks are either too pink or too dry. The stake I had was OUTSTANDING! Con - the side dishes need a lot of help, all of them.

    First of all, parking is a disaster. And it pretty much meets the criteria of a low-rate hotel restaurant from start to finish, except at higher end price points. This is by no means fine dining-we were seated in the atrium next to a door that patrons exit to use the nearest restroom! Our server fumbled throughout the entire meal, saying rehearsed lines but constantly absent when we wanted to place a drink order, wine order, never checked on us after our food arrived and we waited forever for the check. The food was passable at best. Yes the steak was steaming hot but guess what....our spinach and potatoes were lukewarm at best. Having expected a fine steak house experience, I was completely speechless at the end. HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

    We dined here on our prom night with a group of 10. They made us feel welcome. I have a peanut allergy and the server and chef was very aware and worked with me. The food was delicious. I ordered the three course feast which included a soup or salad, an entree, side, and desert. My Caesar salad was amazing. The steak was juicy. The portions were a good size. My boyfriend and I will surely dine here again.

    I ordered a rib eye (medium) it came out raw I sent it back 3 time because each time it was bleeding. The manager came over and kept apologizing but that did no good so the last time they bought it out once it was medium it tasted like burned charcoal. I gave up. But the sweet potato casserole is to die for.

    Long wait for waitstaff to come to table after seated, long wait for refreshments, long wait for food, steak overcooked and had to be returned, many, many crying children in restaurant. Usually food is worth price but not in the case of spending alot of money on food and having to yell over the children in the restaurant, while we didn't dawdle, we were in the restaurant for 2.5 hours. First bad experience at restaurant but it will be remembered

Great service from the time we walked into the resturant, until the time we left. Also the managers came over to welcome us and check to make sure everything was perfect.

    This was not what I remembered. I went to the one in Mareitta last year, food was great and the most important thing is the service was awesome. So, I decided to take my bf to the one in Buckhead for his birthday couple days ago. I was so disappointed and sure won't go back there again. The services we received were a cold face from the manager and our server disappeared on us most of the time.

    The food is hideously overpriced but pretty good. Odd, too, that there was a sign at the reception desk saying "Proper Attire Required" but the family of four next to us were in shorts and t-shirts. (I'd hate to see what ranks as improper attire.) Bottom line, I can't see going again or recommending the place due to the prices. On the upside, the service was good, and they provided a little free dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary.

    Had dinner at Ruth's Chris on Saturday April 5th, my first time at this specific location but not at a Ruth's Chris. The staff met my expectation but I would not say anything got my attention. The location inside an Embassy Suites Hotel does not lend itself to an intimate setting especially if you are not sitting in the main dining room. I asked for a table change to a less open/exposed section of the restaurant. The best part of our meal was the bread pudding dessert. The rest of the meal was good but not exceptional.

    This visit did not live up to the previous times I have been to a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Initially everything was fine, but when my order of Spicy Lobster Bites came out as Spicy Oyster Bites, I knew that things weren't going to be like before. They did bring us out the correct appetizer, but by that time our main course was ready to come out. The main course was very good, but not spectacular, and I had to wait 15 minutes before I got a refill on any of my drinks. At the time, there were only a couple of other tables seated too. Near the end of dinner, we had an entirely new waiter come over and ask us about dessert. It was rather confusing. As for the atmosphere, it was in the lobby of a hotel, so there's that...

    My wife and I took our twin boys here for their 15th birthday. Our waiter was outstanding. Sadly I had to return my ribeye as I ordered it medium and it was medium well to well done. My son's steak was also over done. They graciously brought me a new steak and brought complimentary desserts for the boys and also to me and my wife. The manager apologized for the steak being overcooked. We were treated extremely well, but for what we paid for the dinner for four, i expected better food. it was good, just not memorable. i usually go to Hal's or Bones and this just does not compare, foodwise. Our service was impeccable, which saved the evening.

    The food was excellent. Everything was above par until the steaks came out. I ordered my steak medium and my wife ordered hers medium well. When the runner delivered the steaks to the table I asked if he was sure the steak on my plate was meduim and not medium well. The runner was clearly wrong. We had the same cut of steak but the medium well steak was significantly shorter. I assume because it cooked longer. The steaks were about the same circumference. We had to cut into the middle of the steak to verify that was the case but who wants to ruin a $50 piece of meat and let the juice escape. I know it sounds nit-picky but for the price you pay I would expect them to get everything right. I would gladly go there again.

    My husband and I were in Atlanta for a get-away--a nice dinner, a concert, and an overnight stay. We decided on Ruth's Chris in Buckhead and it was an excellent choice! Since it's in a hotel there's valet parking which is free if you get your ticket stamped at the restaurant. We were seated in the atrium area of the restaurant and the ambiance was fantastic. We did dine early, but hopefully this would be the same if there was a rush. We had SUCH an attentive server--he was out of this world, and the food was perfect! I would highly recommend this location of Ruth's Chris.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    My wife and I have dined at a number of Ruth's Chris steakhouses across the country. Kind of like a ultra high end McDonalds, they are very consistent in their service level, quality and cut's of meat and food serving temperature. At this location the service was great but the cut of our filet's was not up to the standard we have seen previously seen and one of our medium rare steaks was over cooked and one was undercooked. Maybe it was just a bad night, but with many other choices nearby, we will try somewhere else next time.

Ambience is slightly lacking given the location inside the Embassy Suites lobby, but if you can ask for a table in the dining room, it is much quieter and more in line with a Ruth's Chris experience.

    We have been to Ruth Chris a few times in the past for special occasions and this time I was not as impressed with my steak. It was a little under cooked so sent it back and then it came back well done when was wanting medium. Flavor wasn't as good. Waiter was very nice but forgot things at times. I think we prefer Centennial location better.

    I was a little disappointed that I had to wait for over 30 minutes to be seated when I had a reservation. Was also disappointed that this establishment allowed individuals who disregarded the dress code to dine at this restaurant, when it clearly stipulates this on a sign posted on the wall. I am addressing this issue, as the other establishments follow this standard as it is to be a fine dining experience. Other than that the food was delicious and the staff was courteous.
