  • "We had a great time dining at this restaurant. The ambience was great and the food was delicious. The only thing I was surprised about is that the waitress didn't ask us if we would like refills. But we had a great evening, and will go back!"

  • "We went there for my wife's birthday. Our experience at the Cincinnati Ruth's Chris has always been positive in our past visits to there and this was no exception. We were seated immediately in a booth, as we had requested. The table was set up to honor my wife on her birthday. Our waiter, Lance, was friendly and efficient without being obtrusive. The veal ravioli appetizer was excellent as it has been at past dinings. We think their filet mignon is the best of any steakhouse and again they were cooked perfectly, medium rare for my wife and medium for me. They presented a complimentary dessert to my wife which actually was enough for both of us! We have eaten at Ruth's Chris' across the country and this rates with the best of them."

  • "We celebrated a birthday on this occasion. The staff did a great job of recognizing the birthday. They had confetti spread on the table and provided a complimentary dessert with happy birthday. The plate had happy birthday written in chocolate along with their name personalized on the plate. At the end of dessert, staff took a photo and placed it in a card titled--"You look more sizzling than our steaks"--a nice touch! Food was outstanding, service was very good."

  • "Ruth's Cris is by far my favorite restaurant and I NEVER have any issues. Suprisingly this changed during my last visit. I ordered the filet well done, as I have done before, and it was extremely dry. I did eat a few bites at the restaurant and took the rest home. I did not complain to management because we were running behind for a movie. I did try warming it up at home and adding some A-1 sauce (which I never have to do) but it didn't help and I pitched my leftovers.Service was great as usual and I will return eventually."

  • "Had never been to Ruth's Chris Steak house before but had heard some great things about it. So glad we chose to dine here. Staff was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating . Steaks (T-Bone and filet) and sides were divine. Ahi-tuna appetizer was also out of this world. My wife commented that the tempura onion rings were the best she had ever tasted and I had to agree. We did not think we needed desert until we tasted the Chocolate sin cake with ice cream on top with an incredibly smooth filling inside that perfectly married the dish together. Turned out to definitely be the perfect end to a perfect dining experience. Eloquent ambiance and convenient parking (elevator from below grade parking garage located just outside) - God Bless!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food is delicious especially the filet! I would definitely recommend the Ruth Chris Choice where you get salad, entree, and dessert for a set price. It saves a lot of money. The service was a decent, a little kinks and it was tough finding our server at times. Waited awhile to get one to attend to us. Had to get up and find someone. Other than that great night and left stuffed!"

  • "Steaks were ordered med to med well and they all came out rare, our sides were wrong. Very disappointed in the service. Server was not attentive and not very knowledgable with the chef specials or the prices. Dirty dishes were left sitting on our table way too long. We were celebrating a special birthday and I didn't want to ruin our fun by complaining to a manager. We expected more than what we received from a restaurant like this."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We've been here a couple of times. We had a reservation and they seated us at the high top bar tables (usually for walk ins) because we preferred not to go upstairs. Service was not as great as usual, not sure if that was because they didn't seat is at a regular table. The restaurant was also busier than the other times we visited so that might be why service wasn't at the same level."

  • "We had a beautiful evening for our Anniversary. Everyone was friendly and they all knew it was our Anniversary. The service was excellent and I can't brag enough about how perfectly the food was prepared. An overall wonderful experience."

  • "The food and service were amazing. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We were in a bit of a time crunch, to get to the ballet on time following dinner. As soon as we told our waitress, she was sure to bring things out in a timely manner. The table had red heart confetti which was a nice added touch since it was Valentines day weekend. The food was all cooked precise and melted in our mouths, we'll definitely be coming back again and again."

  • "Me and my fiancé visited the Cincinnati location for valentine celebration, having dined at your Louisville several times I had high expectations, and you did not disappoint, 2 thumbs up we'll be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is a modern, upscale and comfortable restaurant with tables spaced far enough apart so you won't hear everyone else's conversation. Service was friendly. We enjoyed the food we were served. But we weren't served the specific cuts of steaks we ordered. Neither my wife nor I immediately noticed we had been served the wrong cuts. When we figured it out (after eating about half our meal), we asked the waitress. The waitress said she had known about the mix-up since the moment we were served, but chose not to tell us. I guess she was hoping we wouldn't notice. Her response didn't sit well with us. The manager comped our steaks. That was unnecessary, but appreciated and appropriate. The experience, like the food, was not what we asked for."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I must say I was less than impressed. The restaurant had so many tables crammed into one small spot that the server kept bumping our chairs. Additionally, our seat was in the path of the door so whenever trhe door opened very cold air blew by our table. in fact, we ate with our coats on. We needed to keep asking for what we wanted or needed: Drink refills, sweetner, bread, etc. While our food was good, it was not $200 good. We won't go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We've been to several Ruth's Chris over the years. This was our first visit in Cincinnati. Our steaks were fantastic. Melt on your mouth perfect. The au gratin potatoes were okay, but Flemings does a better version. We were seated near the bar, so the ambiance was lively. Beautiful restaurant. Our server seemed new. She wasn't familiar with the bar drinks. Overall, we had a very nice time and plan to return."

  • "Everything was wonderful! From the Lobster Mac 'n cheese, to the Filet; to the creme brulee. Every was so delicious."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Steaks were thin. Overcooked a little. Potatoes au gratin were smothered in cheese and garlic, terrible. I thought this was a top level steak house. I guess not anymore. I will not be back."

  • "This was my first time dining at a Ruth Chris and I would say that I was not disappointed. Solid Wedge salad, above-average Ribeye, great service, great addition for the Banks."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "As always the Ruth chris steak is unparalleled. The service from the head waiter was fine but the assistant waitstaff was not up to Ruth chris standards. When they served a water they spilled ice and water at 3 of 4 people and not so much as a sorry and there was NO effort to clean up we had to deal with it ourselves. The food came and they needed to ask who was having what entre - this is my biggest disappointment at any restaurant-train the staff or have the waiter serve who knows what meal goes with the patron. My only other issue is this is the only Ruth chris I know of that does not allow corkage. Reliable Ruth chris steak but sub par service for the chain."

  • "Never to disappoint. A successful bday celebration for Dad! We had six at our table including a toddler, and they were extremely accommodating. Angie our waitress was awesome! Second time she served us, and she got a great tip meaning she made us have a splendid time. Food was expensive (which was expected and worth it) and on point. Soooo yummy! We will be going back soon. I'm looking forward to trying their happy hour!"

  • "Filets were ordered medium and were delivered medium well to NO pink - they were dry. Didn't bother to send back but we should have. Restaurant was COLD and we had to ask for the heat to be turned up. Service was good but for what we paid for dinner the steaks should have been outstanding and they certainly were not. I have eaten here before and had a similiar issue with the steak which I did send back but just wasn't up to the hassel this visit. FOUR filets were overcooked at our table. There are too many other steak places to eat with frankly better ambiance - I won't be back."

  • "Not the best night to judge a resturant. The tables are placed to close to one another. My brother, backing up to a pathway, was constantly bumped due to wait personnel and other customers. The woman located at the next table was not paticularly large - but, sat comfortably away from her table causing the "congestion". With tables this close it does not take much to have the dominos start to fall."

  • "We dined at Ruth Chris on New Year's Eve - there were a total of 4 of us at our table. The service was excellent. We all chose the option of the Ruth Chris "special" ~ an appetizer, entrée, one side, and dessert. My friend and I both had the Caesar salad, which was beyond delicious. All 4 of us had filets; my friend received a "new" steak as hers had not been prepared correctly. Staff was very attentive. I would have to say I was disappointed in the flavor of the steak, and we all commented that our meal was "good", but not the best meal we've had, and especially not for the price we paid. We felt that the price was exorbitant for the quality of the food, particularly the steak, which is the main reason we chose Ruth Chris."

  • "We have dined at different R.C. Steak Houses around the country and have always been blown away by the experiences. What a great place to have dinner! If you're in Cincy, you have to stop in. Best steaks and other entrees are just as wonderful. We'll be back!!!"
