  • A Steak House out of Steak??
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    My first trip to Ruth's Chris Steak House was far less amazing then I expected. We sat down had time to review the menu and then went to order. We heard the fresh fish of the day which was the swordfish and so on. My boyfriend very excited about that ordered the fish but was unfortunately told they were out, a bit confused as to why we were told about it if you didn't have any left but ok. Then he decided to go with a bone-in filet....sorry we are also out of those....really?? So his next choice was the rib eye and not even kidding they were also out of that!! Manager came over to apologize said dessert was on him, but when we went to order dessert and asked for banana cream pie they just happened to be out of that as well. Just Awful!!!!

    We enjoyed the former Ruth's Chris on Market for a number of years. We're glad you're back in Denver on 15th, by the Hyatt Regency. The steak was superb. The space is beautiful -- the dining room is elegant and the bar is upscale/comfortable with a great happy hour menu. The regular bar menu is also reasonably priced. The service was excellent!

    Portions of sides are quite generous for sharing. Although it is rather expensive, the quality was excellent. The staff were bright energetic and pleasant young men who took good care of us. The plates are brought hot...very hot....which was excellent. Quite a bit of butter on them, which seemed rather decadent. Although they were full, it was much less noisy than similar places, which was delightful. Quite pleased.

    Overall it was a nice experience to a place that I'd only go on restaurant week or other deal. The service was very nice, welcoming outstanding. My family of three each ordered a different entrée which was great so we got to taste everything. My 6 oz filet was very very small, especially compared to the 6 oz filets that two others at my table were served. If mine was 4 oz it'd be pushing it! It was very tasty - just very small. The salmon portion served to my husband, on the other hand, was very generous. The chicken portion was large too. The mashed potatoes was a generous serving, that none of us at the table could finish. Suggest perhaps cutting back on the potatoes and serving a small portion of green veggie with each meal.

    My boyfriend and I went to Ruth's Chris downtown for restaurant week and had an amazing experience. The waiter was fantastic, the food came out quickly and was delicious. The drinks we ordered were classy and tasty. While we only came for restaurant week we will be returning for our anniversary dinner as it's such a romantic setting. We loved it!!

    I am super excited that this restaurant is back in Denver. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious. You've never had a real steak until you have had a Ruth's Chris steak. We had the steak off of the Restaurant Week menu; however, we have dined at this restaurant in other states paying the regular price. It is worth every $.

    Lovely setting. I know the restaurant is still new and I made allowances for that, plus the fact that it was the first night of Denver Restaurant Week, but the service was not up to par. Other Ruth's Chris' we have dined at are always spot on. This one has quite a way to go to be on the same level. We placed our drink order and it took at least 10 minutes before the drinks arrived. The food was good, but the rib eye was not cooked as ordered. We'll try the restaurant again in a few months to see if the wrinkles are ironed out.

    Great food, oddly green service, just need bigger plates to allow for cutting of steak and placing sides on plate. They are like small saucers and tough to do what you normally would while eating. Our waiter was very green and didnt acknowledge or ask about our 15yr anniversary as i had setup ahead of time. He also oddly asked to take the $285 check after i signed it while we were wrapping up our meal. Feels like that could be fixed with training, as the service should match the food and the atmosphere.

    Went with a group of 6 for Denver Resturant Week. Had reservation and walked right in to our table - nice. Great full course meal, especially for the special price. Desert was wonderful. Didn't seem busy so wondered why service was a little slower than when I had been there on a regular night. Love the Ruth's Chris signature - everything is better with butter!

    Four of us had a wonderful experience at Ruth's Chris while taking advantage of the restaurant week specials. The staff was so professional and we were treated like royalty. We finally learned how the unusual name came about. Ruth bought a Chris Steak House in New Orleans. Naturally it became Ruth's Chris Steak House. We began with an order of sweet and spicy Asian flavored calamari ... so tender and tasty ... best I've had. Our steaks, which were topped with blue cheese were amazingly tender and sizzled in the butter. We shared the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. We each ordered different desserts and each looked beautiful and were the perfect ending to a perfect meal. Even though it was a busy evening we never felt rushed.

    Last time we visited this location, we ran into a number of issues around both the food and the service, but boy has it improved. While the previous experience was out of the norm we have experienced here, it was great to get back to the great food and service we have come to expect from Ruth's Chris. Steak was perfect, corn chowder was great and the wine superb. Top it all off with great and attentive service.

    We were in town for a meeting. Have been to many Ruth Chris' across the country. My wife made the same wine request she always orders. For some reason our waiter felt the need to make it a discussion. Things deteriorated from there her steak wasn't properly cooked and the overall experience was not pleasant. Definitely our worst dining experience at a Ruth Chris restaurant.

    Our first time at this spot was encouraging, but this last trip was highly disappointing. The service was mediocre because they did not have enough staff of for the lounge area. More importantly, my steak was mediocre at best. I had the ribeye and it was tasteless. Others at our table had their steaks arrive not to their liking temperature wise. Medium rare steaks were medium to well. One medium was clearly over cooked to the point of over well done. Very disappointing.

    I had high hopes for Ruth's Chris having really enjoyed me experience there years ago. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated promptly. The staff seemed nice and up beat. This is when things started to drag. We appreciate a well timed dinner and like when a reataurant doesn't seem to be pushing you out. This wasn't that. Things were just SLOW. It took forever to get a drink order in and then longer to get the drinks. On a recommendation we decided on the porterhouse for two. There was no mention that it comes burnt. But even cooked at medium that is what it was. The inside meat was good but the after tasted was just burned flesh. We then waited twenty minutes for anyone to clear our plates. Price was huge, food was bad. Don't go.

    Even though the restaurant was not crowded, it took a long time to get our food. My steak was not cooked as I had requested. My husband was almost finished with his meal before I received my steak. The chef did come out and apologize and gave us extra green beans. Our waiter disappeared for long periods of time. We asked to see the dessert menu and waited and waited for him to return. Finally, we got the attention of the manager and complained. He apologized and took our dessert orders. He gave us one of the desserts free. The manager was eager to make our dinning experience pleasant but why was the restaurant having all of these problems. Other diners also seemed to have to wait a long time for their entrees and desserts.

    We (four of us) went to Ruths Chris to meet my daughters new boyfriend for the first time. We had a drink at the bar and the bartender was great. The drinks were good. Then, we were seated. The server (I cannot remember her name) was way too casual for a fine dining restaurant. She for got one glass of wine during the meal, she didn't know anything about the dessert wines, she didn't act interested in our questions about the menu - she just pushed us through our order. Didn't love it. Wouldn't go back. We will gladly spend $354 somewhere else.

    I frequent RC all over the country,this one has to have the slowest most amateur service I have received.We purposely selected a later reservation 9.00pm to allow for the rush of a Saturday night crowd get there due service,only to find out the crowd wasn't there and for good reason! Salad took 30 minutes followed by the entree another 30 minutes. My wife had a salad myself a ribeye medium,nothing that would cause our order to take as long as it did. The food turned out to be ok not great.

    Love this place, but most recent visit had way to many issues we had to deal with. Had a reservation. Place wasn't busy, got there 10 min early and still took almost 20 min to seat us. Initial service was very timely and a great waitress. Placed our order and I ordered a glass a wine. Wife didn't order any but when mine arrived I was so impressed and she tried it and we ordered a second glass. Very bad (both smell and taste). Flagged down the waitress and were given a replacement glass that was much better. After a very long wait, salad finally arrived... food was great. After an even longer wait, steaks arrived but mine, ordered medium well.... was still mooing. Problem was fixed... but very uncharacteristic of Ruths Chris

    Having eaten at numerous Ruth Chris's around the country I felt that this would be a safe choice for my dining experience in Denver but was I wrong. Even though the restaurant was extremely slow when we arrived, service was terrible, after being seated it took 15 minutes for someone to acknowledge us. Any requests for additional drinks, etc. would take another 4 to 6 minutes. Dirty dishes remained on the table until we asked them to remove them. After meal was served, waiter did not return for ten minutes to check on order. Food was bad, started with the bread which was stale and not warmed up. The steaks were not prepared to order, medium was well, etc. Four tables around us sent food back for poor preparation. Will not return.
