Diner Reviews
  • "My lobster was perfect, sweet, succulent, shelled and fit for a king!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Food was fantastic. Spent 5 yr anniversary with wife, and it was a memorable dining experience thanks to the staff at RCS. Would reccomend dining at least 3 hrs prior to a nearby event to ensure you can get out and be on time"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "This was an fantastic experience, it gave my wife and I an opportunity to spend some quality time with our dear friends while enjoying a great meal in the heart of Cincinnati. The ambiance is elegant yet comfortable and the service is was just outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone that I know, especially visitors or residents of The Queen City."

  • "The food was excellent! HOWEVER, I noticed that the waiter did not return my credit card after I paid...he claimed that he couldn't find it. He eventually "found it" several minutes later. He also attempted to charge me $22 for a $12 glass of wine. A great meal was ruined by the potential of identity theft. I am now in the process of canceling and replacing my credit card"

  • "We always have good service, and immediately think of Ruth's Chris when we want to go out for steak. Their steaks are top notch. Never any waste."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Place was nice. Had a great table with a view. Service was excellent. Food was good next time hold the butter it was a little to saucy for a steak. Food presentation was poor. Too small of a plate. Price was high but expected that. I think paying those prices I will stick with rubys. Mainly for the food"

  • "Steaks were outstanding. Waiter, Andrew, was one of the best we have ever experienced. Everything was perfect."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Ruth Chris and it was absolutely perfect. We had wonderful service, the food was outstanding, and we couldn't have been more satisfied. We will most definitely be coming back soon."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "My wife and I went for a belated anniversary dinner. After a balky start with finding the valet on a game night (it'll be in front of the Freedom Center), and a slightly frazzled bar staff, we had a lovely dinner. My only complaint would be that the wine markups are a tad stiff."

  • "This was my first time at the Cincinnati Ruth's Chris and to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Morton's or Ruby's would've been the better choice. The service was great but the food was awful. The dining room was not full so I can't say the kitchen was overwhelmed. I ordered the two lobster tails and 11oz filet, spinach and au gratin potatoes to be split with my boyfriend. They cut the steak at the table and put it on a very hot plate which continued to cook the meat. My medium temp was now very well done. They took it back and brought me a new one 22 minutes later! The boyfriend was finished and everything else was now cold. After speaking to the manager, the steak was taken of the bill."

  • "My husband and I went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary with another couple. The service and food was absolutely wonderful and first class. The restaurant even had rose petals on the table with a happy anniversary card and after dinner took our picture which gave us memories to take home. We loved the evening of celebration."

  • "We've eaten at several different RC locals including Palm Springs & Maui. Our last experience in Maui left us a little disappointed in food quality. We tried again at the Banks and were pleased that it met all our expectations! Food and service were outstanding! Thanks to Andrew for making our anniversary dinner a wonderful night out!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Our second time at this location and it was great! Celebrating a new job and our server Tasha was fabulous. Our meal was delicious! Crabtini for him, shrimp cocktail for me. Both yummy. Cocktail sauce on shrimp had a nice horseradish bite without being overpowering. Caeser salads good but huge. He had the strip and loved it - cooked to medium rare perfection. I had surf and turf and loved it too. We shared the lobster Mac and cheese - Heaven! A wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Our table was beautiful rose petals and glitter. Service was beyond expectations."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The chopped salad was yummy! All 4 of us got petite filets, cooked to our liking. Although all four tasted great, two of the filets required more carving than we would have imagined. I found my filet didn't need the brandy peppercorn sauce, which had a slight chemical taste to me. Maria gave us great service and we will be back!"

  • "We went to the restaurant for a birthday and Father's Day. Everything was wonderful and have no complaints at all. The food was great!!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The service was better than the meal. Our appetizer (lobster) was so over spiced in that it ruined the flavor of the lobster. We had the same appetizer at RCS in Loisville and it was awesome! Cinncinati, you failed us on that. One steak was overcooked and the other steak was way to raw in that had to be sent back to the oven. We wouldn't care but when you are paying $45 for a steak it should be cooked to perfection. My suggestion, the RCS in Cincinnati should take some cooking lessons from your sister in Louisville. We spent $180 on this anniversay meal and did not even enjoy it. Somewhat disappointed."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We went to Ruth's Chris for the first time on Sunday for our anniversary. The staff was so nice to us - they decorated the table with rose petals and had a Happy Anniversary note waiting. The service throughout the meal was very attentive without overbearing. And we still dreaming about the steak!! It was the best we have had. Cooked to perfection! Going to dinner there that night made our anniversary even more special - we left smiling with full bellies :)"

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We were celebrating our anniversary and felt like we were treated like royalty. We had rose petals on the table and a special anniversary card. I had the Ruth Classic lobster & filet which was wonderful which comes with a salad, side and dessert, otherwise all menu items are ala cart. My husband had the ribeye which he also enjoyed. The steaks have a unique flavor and come with a special flavored butter which is a bit different, but still good. I ordered my steak medium rare, but I would have called it rare (but I still like it rare) so did't say anything. A bit pricey, I'd return for special occasions. Service was exceptional."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "We decided to give Ruth Chris a try for my husbands birthday in hopes of expanding out from our normal steak house locations. The restaurant itself was beautiful and we were seated upstairs with a window view. Being that it was the beginning of June and hot in Ohio, we expected the restaurant to be colder. It was not. We were hot the entire time and sweating during our meal. The food was good but the only downside is that my husbands steak, which was ordered medium rare, was sliced open in many different spots, to make sure it was cooked to temperature. This was upsetting. The desserts were great, as was our server Andrew. We may be back depending on the occasion, but would likely try something else other than the steak. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Service was good - the food not so much. I had the sea bass and it was good except for the massive amount of butter floating around on my plate. I would have liked to finish the fish but just couldn't get past all the butter. Someone else at our table had the scallops & same thing. Next time I want seafood I'll just go to a seafood restaurant. The steaks looked good. The lobster mac & cheese was very dry. Overall I'd say the food was average and definitely order steak here, not seafood."

  • "Rick was fantastic, couldn't ask for a better waiter. Very attentive and very nice looking. He saw me looking out the window and came over and pull up the shade so I could see out. The food was wonderful & nice an hot, which is a big deal to me. And the lobster special was big enough for a meal for one person which we order to share. It was a very lovely place for any reason to go out for the evening! "

  • "My wife and I dined at Ruth's Chris before going to see a show at the Aronoff. The dinner was superb from our appetizer all the way through dessert. The service was far above what was expected. The place was warm and inviting, and the food was delicious. I will definitely come back. In fact, when compared to other high end steak restaurants in Cincy, I believe this is my new favorite."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here the other night for our anniversary. When they called to confirm our reservation my husband told them it was our 30th wedding anniversary. I did not know they knew seeing as I originally made the reservation. When we arrived there were tiny red hearts on our table, a note card from the staff wishing us a happy anniversary and after dinner they took our picture and presented it to us to take home! We couldn't of been more surprised. Needless to say the food and service were excellent! Great job! Would certainly recommend again! "

  • "This was our first visit to any Ruth's Chris Steak House, but knew that they had a great reputation and most notibly for those hot sizzeling plates. We were not disappointed by the plates. The service was great. We were seated immediately, the server was very pleasant, accomdating, and knew the menu and specials. The menu was nice, easy to read, and had many very nice options. Our food arrived in the expected amount of time. All was great up till this point. While the steaks we ordered (12 oz ribeye) they both seemed very "fatty" with several places of grizzel that had to be cut around. The steak was a bit "thinner" than we would have expected as well. The taste was fine, but felt the "quality" of the cut dimished the experience."
