Diner Reviews
  • "Great experience all around for a first visit. Will probably frequent the South Barrington location as it is closer to the house. The Chicago location was used to help celebrate a friends birthday who lives in the city."

  • "Another excellent dinner at Ruth Chris in Chicago - a favorite restaurant of ours. This was the first time our steak was overdone, but we didn't say anything because we were on a time line to catch the subway to Wrigley Field for a concert. Service was excellent, as usual. A little on the pricey side, we noticed it was more than last time we were there, but still worth paying for on a special occasion."

  • "As always the place is never a disappointment. The food is always awesome. I just can never get enough. I have visited many steak houses in Chicago and none have met the standard or the satisfaction as Ruth Chris"

  • "Everything was good. Classic menu selection was Great to keep you on budget. Plan to return in near future."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This steak house has no frills. Traditional steak house menu with attentive service, but prices to match downtown Chicago. It's location is its low point. Tucked into the heart of River North and the tourist mecca. Valet is a must. Upstairs dining allows for a quieter experience if that's what you're looking for. All around a classic old school steak house experience."

  • "My son and I dine at Ruth's Chris to mark special occasions. It is pricey but in the past the food and the service is so impecable that it is worth it. Not this visit. The restaurant was not overly busy. We were there on time for our reservation. Our waiter acted like he was working at Denny's. No professional pratter. Our drinks went unfilled. Our food was sloppy in presentation, came out too quickly and we waited forever for the bill. Our "special occasion" was ruined by awful service. I tipped 20% because as a former restaurant server myself, I understand the importance of tipping. However, if one is "lucky" enough to work at a pricey, high-end steakhouse, one should actually WORK to make the dining experience worth it."

  • "Petra was great! Efficient and professional. Steaks were tender and hot. Appreciate the dessert for my husband's birthday!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I made reservations in advance to celebrate my husband birthday and I informed the restaurant ahead of time. Upon entering we were greeted with a smile and once we were seated I had noticed the staff decorated our table with a little special confetti. Also our server paid special attention to us and even served us a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" dessert, on the house. OVERALL ANOTHER GREAT EXPERIENCE...I would definitely recommend for a nice intimate date night"

  • "We have lived in Chicago since April 2013 and this is by far our worst experience. First, we had a reservation and were seated in a conference room, complete with a projector screen for dinner?! That was just the beginning, the food was terrible. My husband's ceasar salad was warm and our calamari was luke warm and greasy. For his main meal, my husband had a filet mignon that looked more like cold roast beef and the plate was not sizzling...isn't this a signature experience at Ruth Chris? The comment of the night was that he could've gotten a better steak at Applebee's, I would rarely agree, but clearly do after this experience. So much for a special night out."

  • "I've been here a few times, and it's always a pleasure. I find it appropriate for a romantic evening with the love of my life, or a ladies night with a few close friends. The staff is always very welcoming, and eager to help tend to my best friend's off requests (like a table by the window, and French bread only!) I will certainly be returning soon!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The waiter is horrible. He made a mistake of our order which the 6oz filet should come with the shrimps. He let us keep the wrong filet which is 8oz and gave us the shrimps after that; however, the bill shows the 8oz steak price, not the 6oz steak price. In the end, his attitude is even worse since we had a complimentary desert from the anniversary and he misunderstood what we said again (we should have three deserts but only came two.)and he kept saying "I am so confused". I am very frustrated to talk to him since he is not professional to take care of our order. Very disappointed!!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I ordered the bone-in Filet and others ordered the bone-in Ribeye, which were both one of the best steak meals we have ever had. Service was great, very knowledgeable and had wonderful recommendations. We got a free birthday dessert that was perfect ending to our meal, since we were there to celebrate my birthday. Pricey meals, but very worth it and I recommend for your next special occasion!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Always the best go to steak place ever. Food is always spot on! Done perfectly. Look forward to Ruth's Chris , wish I could afford it daily! Downtown location is nice, but service is a bit slower only because it's down town , makes sense. If you go , don't go when on a time restraint ."

  • "My experiences at Ruth Chris has never failed. I've taken several friends and family members to RC for the wonderful experience of how a steak should actually taste. Thank you RC. I will definitely be back!:-)"

  • "Honestly, I have been to almost everyone of the top 20 steakhouses as determined by Chicago magazine, and this one is by far the worst. Sure it's a good steak, but it's def not great. I had the cowboy bone in ribeye which was a nice size and had pretty good flavor. But comparatively, the steaks at bavettes, David burkes, maestros, Chicago cut, Morton's, or Benny's are way better and blow Ruth Chris out of the water. The money spent at any of the above mentioned places is roughly the same as Ruth Chris. So all in all, save your money and spend it elsewhere."

  • "We have been going to Ruth's Chris for at least 13 years. The food and the service are always excellent. Out server on Saturday, Mason, was outstanding. KUDO's to Ruth's Chris for consistent quality and service."

  • "We chose Ruth's Chris to celebrate my birthday in Chicago based on our experiences in other cities. Normally this is a fantastic restaurant with great food, ambiance and service. This experience failed on all accounts - service, ambiance and food quality. We won't return to this location and would not recommend it to anyone. The music and the patrons at the other tables were so loud that you could not carry on a conversation. My partner was seated so that the wait staff was constantly hitting him while they were at the service station. It took 25 minutes to get 1 glass of wine. Tea was not refilled during the entire meal. The steak was tough and sweet potato casserole was dry. We finally got the attention of a manager as we left."

  • "Hadn't been in a while and forgot what a gem this restaurant is. The location is perfect, but most of all, the food and service are incredible."

  • "I have been visited many Ruth Chris restaurants and they never disappoint. We ordered ribeye steaks and the lobster mac and cheese and everything was delicious. We also had the calamari and it is the best calamari ever!"

  • "You cannot go wrong with Ruth's Chris. It is a highly dependable place for steaks. Service was very attentive for our party of six."

  • "The best meal we've had in a long time with outstanding service to boot. Steaks were perfectly cooked, drinks were excellent (esp my strawberry basil gimlet) and we especially loved our complimentary cheesecake :). From the moment we entered the restaurant, everyone we encountered wished us a happy anniversary and did their best to make our visit special. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Some of the best comfort food in Chicago and definitely the best steakhouse in town. This restaurant is expensive but you can taste the difference and understand what you are paying for. Items I had the Strawberry Basil Gimlet, BBQ Shrimp, Ribeye, Lobster Mac & Chesse, Spinach Au-Gratin, & Crème Brulee. I recommend all of the items I had but I would like to highlight the lobster mac & cheese. This is the most flavorful and delicious lobster mac & cheese I have ever had. The green chili peppers are what set this mac & cheese apart from others. The steak is literally sizzling in butter and juicy, my cocktail had no taste of alcohol but packed a punch, the Spinach Au-Gratin was cheesy not creamy, and the crème brulee was perfect. "

We left full and happy! My one only critique is some of the seating is so close together our conversation could not be as private but overall the service was amazing!!"

  • "We have been to Ruth's Chris many times, although this was our first visit to this one in Chicago. The food was great as always however the service was disappointing. Our waiter was not very attentive and did not give the level of service that we have experienced at other Ruth's Chris restaurants. "

  • "I admit I like steak, and I have tried most of the steak houses in Chicago, and Ruth Chris happens to be my favorite. Something about that last minute butter sizzle.... Makes me happy.. The garlic mash potatoes are scrumptious. The chopped salad was good, the appetizers and desserts are okay...."

  • "I booked my reservation a couple weeks in advance for Mothers Day and was disappointed with how crowded and unaccommodating the restaurant was when it came to seating us at the time of our reservation and having an available waiting area for us to sit before our table was ready. I read on their site that they were making things special for mothers, but after experiencing the overly crowded restaurant and the noisyness, I was pretty disappointed and didn't find anything very special or intimate about my first Mothers Day at the restaurant."
