Diner Reviews
  • "The food was quite ordinary and way over-priced. Wines that we usually order at other restaurants had a much higher mark-up. We got the distinct impression that the steaks were covered in butter, which would explain the upset stomach in the middle of the night. My advice would be to stay out of chain restaurants like this and support our locally owned and operated restaurants here in Chicago. "

  • "Had the bone-in filet, grilled asparagus, and lobster mac-n-cheese. Probably the best steak we've ever had. Steak was perfectly cooked and the asparagus was delicious as well. While I am not much of a mac-n-cheese fan, I actually enjoyed the lobster mac-n-cheese. Service was also very good. Definitely pricey so it's not somewhere I'd eat too frequently, but would highly recommend for special occasions."

  • "This was my first time at Ruth Chris. I was pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. The food is amazing! The service was wonderful. Our server George was really good with people and checked on us often! I can't wait to return!"

  • "This location in the Ruth's Chris chain is in River North just across the river from the downtown Chicago Loop. Food was consistent with Ruth's Chris standards. Nice traditional decor. Excellent service."

  • "As a frequent traveler, I have the opportunity to visit many restaurants. This was my very first visit to a Ruth Chris. I have heard many good things about Ruth Chris and have seen the restaurant in many places throughout the country. So I was so excited to celebrate a friend's birthday. Immediately upon being seated, our waitress approached our table in a very "hurry up and decide " attitude. We had questions about the menu and she could not answer them and at one point she just walked away while we were still asking questions. Her name was Keke and she definitely needed some customer service training. She had such a horrible attitude that we asked the manager for a new waiter. The new waiter was great but Keke ruined the experience."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Ruth Chris. We both selected the special 3 course menu and all of the courses were normal size (same as the entree portion ala carte) except the sides were a little smaller but still large enough to share. I was able to substitute fresh fruit for the bread pudding dessert which was nice. Definitely worth a visit."

They took us to our table and their was birthday decoration, later they brought a piece of pie with a birthday candle. This place is worth the price."

I have put Ruth Chris to the top of my Favorites. Oh n my husband ordered his steak medium well no pink, well he received some pick, but refuse to complain to waiter because the steak was excellent in taste. For our first time. Wonderful, I couldn't have made a better decision."

  • "Food was fantastic, service was not. Drinks took too long, and were never refilled. Salads were never brought out. Server ignored special requests. Manager offered us a free round of drinks, but didn't follow through. Both the server and manager were great at talking, terrible at listening. For these prices, we expected better."

  • "I've been eating at RC for many years and this visit didn't disappoint. My daughter and I were celebrating her 16th birthday and I wanted to have her enjoy a great steak. Filet for her and a ribeye for me. Like butter... Our waitstaff took great care of us and now my daughter wants to go back every week!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Service was great, I like how the are attentive and pay attention to detail. The stakes were exactly what one should expect for the price paid. The bone in filet was tender and juicy. Unfortunately the USDA Prime ribeye required a lot of catching and cutting. I'm glad we tried it. Next time, however, I'll hit up one of the outstanding local steakhouses, like David Burke's or Smith & Wollensky, Gibson's, or even the Chip House."

  • "We came to celebrate our one year anniversary of marriage on Friday night. Jennifer was out server and was awesome. We had a perfect bottle of silver oak and was a 100 dollars which surprised us the fair pricing. The ribeye and filet were cooked to perfection. Our asparagus wasn't the best but the lobster Mac n cheese was amazing. We thought celebrating our anniversary would add a dessert or something but as stated in the title, best steak in Chicago. Jennifer was awesome. Ruth Chris is my new favorite restaurant."

I got really excited when I received the email about the review and really just expected a dinner with just the two of us which just would have been fine. Once we arrived we were told to go upstairs to the private rooms to seat at TABLE 5. It is here were we met brand new friends! Tottally unexpected! The Patron Tequila Review was fantastic and absolutely have no words to describe a GREAT evening! I look forward to many more evenings like this!"
