    The food and service was fantastic. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with the wine list. The special lobster mac was a nice change. Steaks cooked perfectly! Be prepared to pay for it though.. Dinner for 2, bottle of wine, 1 app, 3 sides, 2 steaks.... $252 before tip!

    This was my first disappointing experience at Ruth's within several years of dining. There were 3 of us in my party and we all ordered lamb chops (medium +) unfortunately 2 orders were severely under cooked (medium rare in most areas). The other order was over cooked (well done). The restaurant was extremely crowded and we figured the kitchen was probably swamped. Although, we understood this, it was still disappointing. However, our waitress Karen was GREAT!

    I won't be returning to Ruth's Chris Steak House. Not that it's bad, but there are other steak places in Chicago which are much better. We ordered the filet which did not have much flavor and had more gristle than a filet should have. The asparagus was good, not over cooked, and the hash browns were very tasty.

    We had a reservation for 6:30 - we did not sit down until 7:15. Sat at the bar in the dining area downstairs, where the ambiance was perfect. We were seated upstairs in a very bright, outdated, rundown room. Our waitress was at our table one or two times total, someone else brought bread, asked if we wanted more (because the food was taking so long we ate it all) and never returned. We ordered our steaks medium well and they were very overdone - dry and chewy. Our waitress spent a lot of time at the other tables around us, but she basically ignored us - couldn't even catch her when she walked by.

    Always a treat - one of the best steak houses in Chicago and elsewhere. Wonderful steaks, entrees and deserts. The ambiance is nice - not as nice as other Ruth Chris' locations - for example the one in Boston - but a very comfortable restaurant. Service is friendly and good. Have been here many times and have never been disappointed.

    For the price and emphasis of quality at Ruth Chris, steaks should be perfect. Medium done means pink inside; neither of our steaks were pink inside. Too done, not juicy or flavorful. Waitress didn't come by after our food was served and never asked if our food was cooked to order. When she finally did, we had already eaten half so it wasn't worth mentioning but we did tell her that the potatoes weren't cooked and she did take them back and then took them off our bill. I thought that was handled very professionally but we shouldn't have been put in that position concerning our steaks. Disappointing.

    I swear by the petite filet with extra butter. Also got the crab cakes, which were delicious. The new lobster macaroni and cheese is one of the best dishes I've ever had - love the slight kick the green chiles gave the dish. If you have room for dessert, the chocolate explosion is a perfect night cap.

    I've been to pretty much every prime steak restaurant in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Ruth Chris is the best when it comes to steak. Every time I try another steakhouse and some are pretty good but Ruth Chris still is the best seasoned steak I've ever had along with being MELT IN YOUR MOUTH TENDER.

    I don't generally go to chain restaurants but I loved that place! Great atmosphere. The bone-in rib eye was the best ever. Sorry I don't remember our servers name but he had a great personality and represents the restaurant so well. It's a long way from LA but I'm sure to stop there again when I'm back. I'll test the waters and try one here locally. Report to follow.

    A friendly and experienced bartender started us with marvelous cocktails - a delicious martini and a Manhattan prepared exactly to my friend's liking. But all of that paled when they brought our dinner. First, our server made very sure the orders were accurate and described exactly what we would be seeing on our plates. One NY strip, and two filets - each done to absolute perfection. Seared on the outside, the beef was succulent within; and the pinot from J vineyards was a perfect complement. We usually opt for seafood, so this splurge was especially enjoyable and satisfying.

    This should be a 5 star rating. Dinner was wonderful as usual. I gave our waiter my credit card and a $50 gift certificate. He subtracted $20 from our bill and put the balance on the credit card. When I caught it, he said the gave me the wrong bill. He did not. He returned in 30 seconds with another credit card slip with the $50 credit applied. He has done this before, and other similar things , if he thought the customer was not paying attention. He looks like a long time employee who knows how to play the system.

    God bless our waitress -- clearly a seasoned practitioner -- for the solid service, because the beef was a huge turn off. My ribeye could have been purchased at the Jewel Osco down the street. It's clear to me now why Ruth's Chris slathers it's steaks in hot butter before serving. They need to cover up the shoddy quality of their meat with delicious butter, but make no mistake: their beef has no business charging actual steakhouse prices.
