Diner Reviews
  • "The food is awesome. It's my favorite steakhouse in St. Louis."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We've been to Ruth's many times, and to this restaurant several times. We had a reservation for a Saturday and were taken to a table adjacent to the service hallway. After objection and a few minutes, we were taken into an empty dining room and given a table in the corner. It generally seems that this restaurant places the dining tables too close together for dining comfort. Service was good, my filet was outstanding, the steaks for my sons not so much. Salads were disappointing; my chopped salad, shared with my daughter-in-law, was tired and minuscule in portion. Vegetables were just ok. Creamed spinach and sweet potatoes were up to par, mashed potatoes and asparagus were not. We were disappointed and won't be back anytime soon."

  • "The salmon that was ordered was not prepared properly. However, because of this the waiter did not charge us for the salmon."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Menu selection poor. I expected to have more of a seafood selection than just Salmon. The tables are way too close together for the price you pay for a meal. I felt like we were eating dinner with the table next to us because we could hear their entire conversation & they were not necessarily loud talkers. I did order from the Pre-Fixe menu...Salad, 6oz filet, stuffed chicken, roasted tomato, creamed spinach & small creme brulee'. Stuffed chicken was cooked well & was very good. Filet was too done. Actually it was probably too small to cook medium. Husband ordered the Ribeye which he said was cooked very good & tastey however, too pricey considering you have to order your sides separately. "

  • "Since eating at Ruth's Chris, my husband and I will never order another steak from any other place...the way that they cook the steaks, the cuts of meat that they serve, and the different crusts that you can put on your steak is so perfect that my mouth is watering just thinking about them! The wine list is amazing and the specials that they have are well worth getting. The restaurant is beautiful, staff is amazing, and manager was always present, friendly, and on top of it! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to eat the best steak and have a romantic night out."

  • "After an expensive day of furniture shopping, my wife and I decided to dine at Ruth's Chris in Clayton. Rather than hassle with finding a place to park, we opted to use valet parking, which was trouble-free. So far, so good. When I told the hostess that we did not have a reservation, she said that other than eating at a high top table in the bar, the restaurant was booked all evening and no tables would be available. Upon leaving, my wife used her smart phone, and made a reservation for only 15 minutes later through Open Table. At least Open Table is user-friendly! Other than being frustrated by an inflexible and unaccommodating hostess, our filet dinners in the dining room were outstanding. "

  • "The food was outstanding. We had the pre-set menu, and it was great, even the price. Darryl was our server and he was very good, pleasant, knowledgeable about the menu, and everything was handled very nice. We have dined there before, and will return again and again. "

  • "the food and service was great except didnt get the bread."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I've dined there before with always a very pleasant experience, but this fell below my expectations. The service was slow and disjointed. The food was just ok. Also, "No shirt, No service" should also include underwear showing no service."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "steaks and side dishes were up to Ruth's typical standards, but our server deserves more than 5 stars. Darryl was properly attentive without hovering, corrected a kitchen mistake without making a big deal and had the personality of PR king. we walked out with huge smiles. it was our anniversary and the rose petals on the table were a nice touch. even tho there was a large outdoor dining area, it was next to some huge machinery which pretty well ruined the ambience. "

  • "we were not impressed by Easter Brunch. A restaurant with the credibilty and caliber of this we expected much more."

  • "We had an issue with my steak however Ms. Stacy took ownership promptly of the well done Steak and as I told her she handled this potential disaster courteously & professionally. I was impressed. Leo Biermann"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "As always, the food and steaks at Ruth's was delicious. One comment because it has happened to me 3 times now.. when the waiter pours the water into the glasses they pour it so fast that the ice plunks into the glass and it splashes!!! SLOW DOWN or get some sort of strainer for the pitcher. It is not elegant. Also, not excited to see the waiters carrying all of the empty cardboard boxes from the bar to the back of the restaurant. Should have been done long before guests arrived."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "It took over an hour from the time we sat down until our appetizers arrived. The manager offered her apology and comped the apps. The food was great but with the delays in getting the food it made for a very average dining experience. I have eaten at several Ruth Chris restaurants and have always gotten great service so something was off that night. The food was excellent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had a phenomenal time dining at Ruth's Chris! Everything was absolutely perfect! We had made reservations and in the reservation I had said that it was my boyfriends birthday and everyone who we came in contact with told him happy birthday! It was absolutely fabulous!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "My son selected this location for his 13th birthday.....and what a great choice. They far exceeded our expectations of making not only him, but all of us feel special. Food was simply outstanding!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We go to Ruth's for one thing: steak. You cannot deny the sizzling steak cooked in butter isn't a hazard to your health but it sure is good. Service is OK not great. The bar/vibe is hip and happening. That night...we had a 730 and didn't get sat until 8 pm. They bought us a cocktail."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Our Fillet was over cooked for medium well and tough, certainly not as good as lesser priced restaurants. Service was friendly and prompt. Highlite was the Carrot Cake. I expected much better for 100.00 per person dinner."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the dinner with my husband, celebrating his birthday. The food was delicious, the ambience was great; the waiters were excellent at presenting the meals and servicing us. Everyone made my husband feel so special as they recognize his birthday. This was our first time dinning at Ruth's and we are planning on returning."

  • "A treat for a special occasion. Best steaks, prepared perfectly."

  • "Ruth Chris steaks are by far the best steaks in St. Louis and will not disappoint."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Good, classic steakhouse restuarant. The steaks are good, but on the pricey side. They had a good restaurant week menu for $25. Good service and nice decor. I think that Flemmings and Kreis are better bets, but Ruths' Chris is much better than Mortons."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "The mixed drinks needed to be better...off tasting... (we dinned last Saturday night, January 25th)...Would like to see the restaurant offer special BIRTHDAY CAKES to those patrons choosing to celebrate their special day at RUTH CHRIS STEAKHOUSE...I would have been more than happy to pay for a small special B-day cake if it was available to celebrate a special occasion like a BIRTHDAY...would love to see a mixed drink menu offered...Would have liked to have been offered a dessert upgrade to the Clayton Restaurant Week Special...I will say that this years dessert offering with Clayton Restaurant week was way, way better than last years offering...(chocolate whipped creme) Thankyou for stepping it way up this year!!! CHEERS!!!"

  • "This restaurant was great; upon completion of the meal, it truly was a "WOW" experience"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "The steak was good but the salad with the scoop of dressing on top was not. The server was excellent. She knew that the salad had too much dressing since I had asked for very light dressing. She offered to replace it but at that point I was turned off about it and did not want more. Next time I will insist dressing on the side. Those hot plates are almost dangerous!"

  • "We celebrated my Father's 84th birthday dinner last Saturday night. It was a great evening. The food, staff and atmosphere were perfect. My only remark is the asparagus. It is just a bland, blanched asparagus. It did not have any real flavor and was very dry. I think they could do something more creative with it. The rest of our meal was fantastic and I would not hesitate to return."

  • "We were not impressed, it felt cheap and more like a Lonestar than a upscale steakhouse. The 4 of us spend over $650 and I felt the experience was not worth the price."
