Diner Reviews
  • "Had a special dinner at RC recently and it was a great experience from valet service through the end of our meal. We were seated very quickly and our waitress was quick to attend to us. She was very nice and efficient. It was restaurant week, so we decided to order form the RW Menu. My date had the caesar salad, chicken, mashed potatoes and chocolate cake options and she loved them. I had the caesar salad, shrimp topped filet, sweet potatoes and bread pudding. Although my steak was more well than medium-well done, it was still very good. I enjoyed everything else on my plates and we had an overall excellent experience. The rose petals on the table was an excellent addition and my date gave me bonus points for the added touch; cheers."

  • "Everything about this evening was first class, from the food to the service to the ambiance. The only negative was that the restaurant was somewhat stuffy. The tables are not on top of one another, so the overall feel is one of spaciousness. A definite winner!"

  • "Very consistent w/ steak which is why we like to eat there!"

  • "We dined during Columbus Restaurant Week and took advantage of their special $35 fixed price meal which is a great value. The main entree was a 6oz. filet with 4 shrimp. The filet was cooked perfectly. We also had a martini to begin ($12.75 ea.) and a glass of wine ($11.00 is the cheapest on the menu) so our "beverage" bill was nearly equal to the food."

  • "Always the best!! You deliver very consistent excellent food and service. We know your price is high but the best steak around is worth it."

  • "food was very good, but not above expected for an upscale gourmet restaurant. Service was way below expectations. Very slow, despite lots of open tables. It was overall an exceptional value with the prix fix offerings, but is not the experience I anticipated based on the normal pricing ."

  • "Went for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were warmly greeted and our table was ready at our reservation time. Rose petals were on our table which was a nice touch. Our service was attentive and efficient. The steaks were excellent, as was the lobster. We rated the overall food as very good (as opposed to excellent) due to the side dishes. The broccoli was good, and the shoestring potatoes were.....O.K. Nothing distinguishing. Received a complementary dessert (ice cream, cheesecake) which was excellent. Overall, a good choice for a special night out. Expensive, but worth it. Quiet enough to have good conversation. As an aside was surprised at the number of people dressed in shorts, t-shirts, and jeans."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Ruth's Chris Steak House. The occasion was noted by everyone from the hostess to the manager, and a personalized dessert was presented. The food was outstanding in taste and in presentation, and was prepared exactly as requested. The evening was elegant, very enjoyable, and highly appropriate for a special occasion."

  • "We would celebrate our Anniversary each year by going to the Woodmere location. Since that closed we decided this year to take a little trip to Columbus to celebrate and it was well worth the drive. Service was incredible with Rose pedals placed on the table. Hope to see a Ruth Chris open again near Cleveland"

  • "This was the best dinner I have ever had! From start to finish it was prefect. The wine was fantastic, salad was crisp, shimp and filet was amazing. The sides and cheesecake were prefect to split. I cannot wait to get back there for another spectacular meal."

  • "One of the best places for steak in Columbus. We enjoy Ruth Chris whenever we go there. Their food is exceptional, consistent and always of the highest quality. The wait staff is amazing, this is our favorite place to go for a romantic dinner."

  • "When not extremely well off $$$, celebrating with family, watching every bite fill their pie holes, and listening to the cha-ching ring in your head because you invited them, it can get quite nerve racking – is this really worth it? Then my fork finds my own pie hole and the ringing fades. I slowly remove the specimen from the utensil, and then place knife and fork filled hands on the edge of the table and straighten my arms. On the first chew causes my eyes to sweep across the ceiling, family, other patrons, and I feel almost a little naughty because no one else notices what was going on in my mouth right now. The answer comes to me as I sit there and do another sweep of my family, my plate, and the atmosphere – Absolutely every penny!"

  • "We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary at Ruth's Chris and were very pleased with our choice. The service was friendly and informative. The atmosphere was good. There was a louder larger party near us but that is not the fault of Ruth's Chris. The food was excellent and they even bought our desert as a gift for our anniversary. We will definitely be back. "

  • "Celebrated a late Mother's Day dinner. Wait staff still gave my wife a Mother's Day rose and a gift card for a future dinner. We thought this to be a wonderful gesture. "

  • "The sea bass and bone in ribeye were both fantastic! The service was excellent - drinks were always filled, people were pleasant, brought Rose petals and sprinkled them on the table and then surprised us with a dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate! Definitely above and beyond just the normal experience. Definitely recommend."

  • "Me and a friend decided to try this restaurant for our birthday and it was amazing. Our server Corinne went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. The portions were generous and our steaks were cooked to perfection.They even gave each of us a bread pudding dessert for our birthday it was incredible. The sweet potato casserole was amazing we will definitely go back again."

  • "We made a trip to Columbus, Ohio just to eat at Ruth's Chris. The evening was perfect from start to finish. We shared a bone-in ribeye, which was delicious. Our sides were huge and well-prepared. The service was superb, as always. Andy is an excellent manager. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "I have the unfortunate news of saying I had my first bad Ruth's Chris dining experience EVER. 4/23/14 at 6pm at the Delaware, Ohio restaurant. Both of our steaks were overcooked and unimpressive cuts of meat for the price. Found it strange that when we left at 7:30, all the other restaurants around it were packed, but Ruth's was darn near empty. Darn."

  • "This meal made our Easter. No family for us this year, but the people at Ruth Chris made us feel like family. And oh the food! But, mucho Demerol."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We usually go to this location of Ruths' Chris for our family Easter meal. Usually the wait staff is spot on with our orders. However, this year, our waiter seemed distracted. My wife's salad come out with the salad dressing on it instead of on the side as she requested. And the steaks came out with the level of cooking incorrect. My wife's fillet came out medium well instead of medium rare and my brother-in-law's steak came out medium rare instead of medium well. We love this restaurant for special occasions but will definitely ask for a different server if we are assigned to Jon again."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We had lunch on Easter Sunday and the experience was good but not as great as it used to be. Perhaps it's because the stuffy-steakhouse concept is becoming passé. Modern concepts are livelier. I remember reading a review that described the atmosphere as funerarial. I suppose it was sophisticated when I first visited in the 90's, now the food just seems old-fashioned."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
