Diner Reviews
  • "The service was excellent, the waiter was very attentive and professional. I got a rib eye which was cooked a perfect medium rare. Veggies were shared withe the table, all the food was cooked perfectly. I have never been disappointed going here."

  • "The crabmeat cocktail was outstanding! The oysters were delicious but whoever opened them needs more practice because there were many pieces of shell in them which was disappointing. They had a wonderful children's menu with a great selection of entrees. We had filets & strip steaks & they were all cooked to perfection & wonderful. The sides are big & are easily shared. A nice cocktail menu & the house wines were very nice. Dessert menu was well rounded & a nice selection of after dinner coffees. We would definitely return."

  • "I took my mother to Ruth's Chris for her birthday. The whole experience was terrific. They started by putting rose petals on the table for her. We started wtih a cocktail-they had a great list! Mark was our server and also happened to be a sommelier. He did an outstanding job of helping us to pair great wine with our meals. Desserts were fantastic, and again were house made. Serivce is incredibly attentive and personable, but not smothering. I would highly recommend this particular location!"

  • "Impeccable service. Traditional high end steakhouse menu with hefty prices to match. Excellent quality preparations, consistent with other Ruth's Chris experiences that we've had across the nation. Nothing more. Nothing less,"

  • "Enjoyed a great meal for myself and my wife to celebrate her birthday. Was surprised we did not receive a birthday dessert since we did on her last birthday. Never the less we certainly appreciated the food and service."

  • "Our experience was everything I expected from Ruth's Chris. The food was very good, service was timely without being over bearing and the beer was cold. I would recommend it for a special night out."

  • "The food and ambiance at the steak house was wonderful! Steak and crab cakes were cooked perfectly. The only complaint I have was about the waiter. He was not very pleasant but I suspect he was not having a good day."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had very good food and a very pleasant (but chatty) waitress. The prices, though, make this a restaurant to only be patronized for special occasions, unless like most of the people in the room you're on an expense account. We spent abut four or five times what meals just as good cost us in other local (and excellent) restaurants. In a foodie town like Durham there are several alternatives with less risk of a heart attack when the bill shows up, but equally excellent (or even better) food. We skipped wine - they charge five times what I can get the same bottle for elsewhere."

  • "Have heard great things but never experienced it myself this was hands-down the best steak I've had in a very long time. Everything about the meal was top-notch my wife and I will definitely be headed back on other special occasions."

  • "Our dining experience with Ruth's Chris was nothing short of being dangerously marvelous. The food was outstanding as well as the service. Our well groomed waiter served us with extreme etiquette. He not only kept us informed on our arriving meal, he kept our dining area spotless. This is the type of service that will make the monitary portion of the dining experience worth while. Marvelously done Ruth's Chris of Durham, NC!!!"

  • "They tried to accommodate a larger crowd for Valentines by putting out small round tables throughout the restaurant creating a crowded not so romantic atmosphere. My table was next to the lobby with people standing next to our table. The waiters were confused due to the additional tables and the orders were delivered to to wrong tables. Our food was delivered with no bread or utensils. We had to request both."

  • "We went for Restaurant Week 2014, and our meal was incredible. The Maryland Style Crabcake was delicious, as well as our salads, perfectly cooked steaks, and rich desserts. While the experience is pricey, we find Ruth's Chris to be completely worth it. The service is on par with the finest establishments we've ever been to. Whenever we go we get to feel like royalty, even if just for one night."

  • "Not happy with the guy in the front we came in and we were early so we sat in the lounge to wait. we went back up at our time he went ahead and sat other people before us and our reservation was at 615 .we didn't even sit to eat until 640. Food was great though and our waitress heather was amazing."

  • "We had a very nice dinner, celebrating my husband's birthday during TRW. Service ( Victor) and food were great. The only " negative" was the fact that , due to TRW, it was crowded, so we had to wait for the table and did not get a booth as requested, so the noise level prevented us from hearing each other too well , as we were at a small table in the center, but we expected issues like that because of the crowd, and it was still a pleasant experience."

  • "Steak melted in my mouth & was perfectly cooked. Apple walnut salad is wonderful, as well as the gumbo. Flourless chocolate cake for desert is heavenly. Excellent service. Food came quickly after ordering. Manager even stopped at our table to make sure everything was to our liking. Pricey restaurant, but perfection isn't cheap."

  • "I knew the restaurant would be busy on a Saturday night so i made a reservation. Our reservation was for 8:15. When we arrived we were told that they were running behind and would be with us shortly. We were directed to the bar area to wait. Needless to the say that area was extremely crowded. We were finally seated 45 minutes after arriving, despite having a reservation. Our waiter was friendly enough, but wasn't very attentive. We received our first course about an hour after being seated..The food was mediocre. Not exactly what I was hoping for after waiting so long to finally get it. It was so late by the time our dessert came around that we asked the waiter to put it in a carryout box. It was after 11:00 when we left. Very disappointed"

  • "My experience at Ruth's Chris was fantastic! We had reservations. Our table was available at the designated time. The food was brought out promptly and not wad it fresh and hot! (The plate was 500 degrees Fahrenheit!) Our waiter, Tyler was attentive and present. He checked on but wasn't invasive. I highly recommend Ruth's Chris!"

  • "We visited Ruth Chris for restaurant week. The menu offered a variety of entree's, an appetizer and dessert. The food and service was enjoyable and the staff accommodated our seating request. My only comment would be to include at least one side with the meal. Other than that, everything was great."

  • "I thought this restaurant would have the same quality of food as the one located in Cherokee NC. The menu specials were different. I asked for medium well steak and received a well done tough steak. The manager was very nice and offer me a series of side dishes free of charge, while I waited for a new steak to be cooked. The side dishes were excellent!!!"
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "Although there was complimentary valet parking available, we parked in a space close to the door, and we didn't use the service. Both of our meals were delicious - our steaks were cooked perfectly - and our waitress was excellent. She was cordial and quite attentive and efficient. The manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was to our liking. The aroma of the dishes as were delivered to other tables was very tantalizing! We had a very enjoyable evening and would recommend it for a nice evening out!"

  • "I wanted to give a special treat to my wife on her birthday. We celebrated our anniversary once in the Miami location. The food is great and the service is personal. You become part of the server; like a friend of time. I recommend highly for your special occasions. We were treated royal that I went ahead and purchase a gift card for our son's wedding anniversary."

  • "My wife & I have celebrated New Yearss Eve here for 4 of the last 5 years & were always happy with the food and service. This time, the food was OK, but the service as pitiful. I talked to the manager who apologized and said thye had experienced a lot of turnover just before the holidays. Having been in management my entire career, I understand the issues resulting from turnover, but your employee situation can not become a problem for your guests. It is an explanation for a problem, but not am excuse."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I understand it was New Year's Eve, but if you are going to tack $19 on to every meal, I would expect, at the least, the same great food and service and ambiance that I have received every other time I have been to Ruth's Chris. Eighteen people in suits running around and nobody having any clue what was going on. How do you seat 2 people at a table for 8 when there's an empty table for 4 right next to that one. Thank God the waitress had enough brains to move us. Had to ask 3 times for my side dish and my wife's side dish of Asparagus was ice cold. Just not what I'm used to from Ruth's Chris. I have always walked out of Ruth's Chris saying "That was expensive, but worth every penny ". I didn't say that this time."

  • "One of the best steaks I've had. Larger portions and great wait staff. My water cup was always full and the waiter was attentive without being overly present. Prices are high, but worth it. Great for a date or special occasion."

  • "We chose Ruth's Chris to celebrate our NYE and our anniversary...I was expecting a impeccable service and a wonderful food...Didn't happened! The food was average (not really a 5 star restaurant quality), served in small plates, with no attention to the presentation...the staff and waiters were stressed, tired and even depressed to work in that day...the service was awful...They just didn't care about us!! I'm so disappointed with this restaurant, cause we just went there because of the reviews here and was such a waste of A LOT OF money. I just can say that I'll never go back there again. Mediocre food and costumer service!!!"

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary. We arrived 10 mins before our scheduled time only to be told we would have to wait, they were waiting on customers who were an hour late. We placed our appetizer and entree orders together. The appetizers were delicious. It went downhill from there. We waited an hour and forty-eight minutes for our food. At one point a server brought me a steak then was told it wasn't mine and picked it up and delivered it to the correct table. A server dropped an entire tray of food, my soup was cold, my steak arrived with a pulse I asked for medium well, they forgot our sides. Our server kept apologizing and told us that our service was bad, but to please come back it will be different."
