Diner Reviews
  • "A lot of goodness wrapped up into a great evening. Filet medallions with shrmp, Oscar style was melt in your mouth. Calamari was fantastic. Too often it's too breaded but this was lightly coated. Would have liked a little more zing in the sauce but still great. Meritage wine was incredible."

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My wife and I had a great dinner as always. The food was amazing, I had the bone in filet and my wife the regular filet. The bone in does truly add a tremendous amount of flavor. For sides, we ordered the sweet potato casserole and the creamed spinach, both were incredible."

  • "My husband and I had the opportunity to have a nice dinner, and we were able to get a reservation at Ruth's Chris Steak House through Open Table. WOW - the food was absolutely phenomenal! The service was very good - it did take a little longer than expected for our waiter to get to us, but he was very good and very knowledgeable. This is a more formal setting, so I would encourage you to dress accordingly. Very quiet atmosphere, so not the best place for young children or a rowdy crowd."

  • "Everything is so good but we have been enjoying the Sea Bass special lately - cooked perfectly where it just falls apart at the lightest touch and melts in your mouth."

  • "Thought we were going out of town for Valentines Day but plans got changed and was later getting reservations. Took a 4pm dinner reservation and all worked out fine. We not got steaks and of course perfectly cooked and top quality. We found a great bluegrass concert to go to after dinner so early reservation worked out. Saw "Steel Wheels.""

  • "My $48 Ribeye steak was cooked "Medium" instead of the "Medium Rare" that I ordered. Server rated only "Fair". My wife and I drank no alcohol, ordered no appetizers or dessert, but our tab still came to $124.00! Overall a good meal, but not worth $124."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I always enjoy my meals at Ruth Chris'. I have been there at least 4 times and everytime it is memorable. The petit Filets oscar style are always amazing, and the sides are quite good as well. Since it was Valentine's day weekend, it was quite crowded in the restaurant, but it was still cozy and had a sense of privacy to the meal. Overall, quite a delicious and romantic place."

  • "We went for our anniversary dinner. While placing reservations through open table I put in the detail box that it was our anniversary. When we showed up every person we were engaged with wished us a happy anniversary, rose petals were on the table and they brought us a dessert at the end. It was a great touch and outstanding service to make our night even more special."

  • "I went to Ruth's Chris for restaurant week. The service and food were outstanding. It was the best steak I have ever had. I also recommend the flourless chocolate cake. WOW. Yum. This is an expensive restaurant, but I believe it was definitely worth the price, especially for a special occasion."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The lighting & interior was warm & elegant. The food was great, especially the steak which was absolutely the best we had ever had. The service was attentive and not overly so. The servers were extremely hard-working individuals. This was a great pick to bring my date for restaurant week -- which I am so glad Ruth's Chris participates in."

  • "Fabulous, from the steakhouse salad with a creamy lemon-basil dressing all the way through to the flour less chocolate drake dessert. I enjoyed the filet with mushrooms. Ordered medium, my steak was perfect. My husband had ordered his ribeye medium also, but it arrived medium rare - the only fault of the evening. Fresh baked bread from the oven too. We will go again."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "I always enjoy going to Ruth's! My steak is always cooked to perfection. Our waiters were attentive and personable. We brought our kids with us this time. Our waiter explained everything to them in a very patient manner. My wife really appreciated that. We will be back."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Low light dining room. Delicious buttery fragrance. Fillet tender and tasty. Excellent service. Next time I'll try the ribeye!"

  • "We went to 3 restaurants during Columbus restaurant week and this was our favorite of the 3. The food was amazing and so was our service."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The quality of the meats was exceptional; my wife's filet was delicious, as my ribeye would would have been, but... it was preposterously salty. When I mentioned this to the server, she said all the ribeyes came that way. I don't know if that meant they arrive from the supplier pre-salted, or that the chef has a heavy hand with the salt, but in either case, I can't recommend this particular steak. At these prices I expected better. Fortunately, the dessert redeemed my experience. The 'symphony of dessert', a flourless chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache, with berries and cream accompaniment was outstanding."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris is our favorite restaurant in Columbus. The best steak you can get. Again the food was wonderful, and the service is the best around. Always a pleasure and can't wait to come back."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "What can I say that I haven't said before? My wife and I went for our birthdays and everything was as outstanding as ever. We don't get such tender filets elsewhere. Thanks Ruth's Chris."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "The food and service were wonderful. However, the alcohol prices were ridiculous. We've frequented several of the 'top' restaurants in Columbus, as well as the top notch steakhouses, and Ruth's Chris alcohol prices were a lot more than theirs. $10 for a beer, $15 for a glass of wine, $20 for a scotch, $60something for what most upscale restaurants charge for a $40something bottle of wine. We like to enjoy a drink with our dinner and dessert, and because of these prices, we probably won't be back. Maybe its because they are a national chain?"

  • "Went to Ruth Chris Columbus to celebrate my wedding anniversary. It's been about 3 years since we had been to this CR. The service, ambiance and food reminded us that we should not go so long between visits. Everything was great! The GM, Andy, came by several times to check on us. It was great experience. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "We are in the area of West Virginia where we are under a water ban, so we ran away to our favorite escape, Columbus, and Ruth's Chris. It was wonderful to be among our friends at Ruth's Chris. Andy, the manager, welcomed us warmly and Josh treated us like royalty. I had the stuffed chicken for the first time and it was delicious! I always have the broccoli au gratin, and it was superb. My husband had a t-bone and loved it. Ask Josh for a wine recommendation. He has never steered us wrong."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Had reservations but still waited 30 minutes for table. Waiter was sweaty and not attentive to requests (3 to be specific) for bread. Water tasted horrible and when we asked if they had bottled water he said he would have to charge us but he could bring us a "bunch" of lemons to make it taste better! Came time for dessert and we never were brought the menu. After asking several times we finally asked for our check. Took 20 minutes to get our check. Expensive dinner with low class service! Horrible experience for what we paid."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Ruth's Chris was really attentive that it was my Husband's Birthday to make it special for him. I really appreciate the Birthday Confetti they placed on the table as well as the immediate seating! The food was pretty good w/the exception of the Scallops & Husband's Steak was a little over cooked, but other than that everything else was wonderful! Thanks Ruth's Chris for making my Husband's Birthday special!"

  • "We spent Christmas Day Dinner at Ruth Chris. As first time diners, we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of the food. The steak melted in your mouth. The sweet potatoes were delicious. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. They helped make our holiday special and we'll be going back in holidays to come."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "This is by far my favorite Restaurant in the world any city I'm in and there in that city I book dinner reservations. I believe with it being New Years Eve they were extremely busy. My server assumed I was waiting on someone so I sat without my order being placed for a hour. Once I got the attention of one of the managers I was then waited on. My steak was to be med well and was overcooked and very dry. Then one of the managers hands me a happy new year bag I guess to make up for it."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Things weren't "bad" but it just didn't seem quite up to the usual Ruth's Chris standards. There was something about the cut of meat and the way it was prepared that wasn't what we had expected or experienced in our prior visits. We were disappointed with our experience on this particular occasion, so much so that we gave the steak we brought home to the dog instead of enjoying a lovely left-over."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "The food is quite good but portions are small and you feel nickel and dimed once you get there. The onlything you don't pay extra for is bread and water. The service was terrific and the atmosphere lovely but there are so many special occassion restaurants in Columbus, OH that I would try one of them next time. Afterall it is still a chain."
