    This Ruth’s Chris wowed me with exceptional service and a wonderfully flavorful steak cooked exactly the way I like it! The only negative; no pecan pie! Instead I had a precious bread pudding, again perfectly executed. Highly recommended.

    I made reservations for my girlfriend's birthday dinner, and the staff made it a perfect evening. The food was outstanding, and the crew working that night was even better. They decorated our table, all stopped by the table at some point to wish her a happy birthday, and brought her out a birthday cheesecake with chocolate almond bark and ice cream! The chef even wrote "happy birthday" in chocolate on the plate! We both ordered the filet, and we now see why Ruth's Chris is considered the best steakhouse. The plate was piping hot, butter sizzling on it, and the steak was hot and perfect the entire meal. This is a great consideration for a special occasion.

    Ruth Chris never disappoints. We have been to several around the country and this one in Columbu, like the rest always delivers consistent great service and food. Yes, it is more expensive, but if you are looking for a sure bet on food and service this is your place.

    It was our first time back to Ruth’s Chris in a long while. It was a very nice experience; the food was very good as was the service. I ordered the 16oz Ribeye, it was very tender, seasoned perfectly and was cooked just as I ordered. We shared Calamari for an appetizer and had mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and the macaroni and cheese with lobster as sides, all were very delicious. Overall we had a great meal and a great visit with Family. Being a Monday night it was very quiet and not crowded.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My husband and I chose Ruth's Chris on a Saturday evening for date night. His steak was $38.00 (steak on a plate no side included) and was just average for a steak house. They only had A1 for a steak sauce as well. My dish was fine but nothing to write home about. My husband was disappointed. The ambiance was ok. Felt like I was close to people behind us. The service was good. Devin did a nice job and was very friendly. The decor is outdated for me and felt like a cave. We most likely will not return.

    After hearing a lot of very positive feedback about this restaurant, we decided to give it a try for our anniversary. I think they were busier than anticipated, so I will let my criticism of the service slide. What was really disappointing was the food. Both steaks were cooked at least one level higher than ordered (the medium rare was medium and the medium was medium well). The au gratin potatoes were as generic as they come. The red wine was overly chilled, overly marked-up (almost 100%!), and lacked quality befitting the price charged. While the atmosphere was very nice, I don't think we will return again. For a quality food experience try the neighboring J. Gilbert's or Hyde Park.

    Amazing, always out of the park. This is our go to place for a dinner we all remember and talk about until the next time to go. If you have never had the sweet potato casserole just order it and you'll see why. If your food isn't what you dreamed it would be all you need to do is ask and your wish is their command. I'll be back, just not soon enough for me.

    This was our second visit to this Ruth's Chris. The food was outstanding as it was the first visit we made here. The restaurant was ready with our reservations and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The only deterrent was waiting for the food server to arrive to the table the first time. Once he arrived all was handled beautifully.

    Our favorite Columbus eatery was so loud and our server seemed so distracting that we couldn't enjoy our delicious steak. Our server seemed like he was in a contest to sell lobster. He recommended it to every table he had. We almost got into a fight over leaving our bread on the table. Finally I ordered dessert and coffee. The French press allowed grounds to pass through. I requested that he bring me a cup of coffee without grounds. He said that he could not and offered me a credit for the coffee. Can I make a reservation for Hyde Park Steak House on OpenTable?

    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.

    Dined on 7/23/2014
    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.

    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.
