Diner Reviews
  • "We use this restaurant for special occasions. It's pricey but you get more than enough for your money. The beef is unbeatable, every menu item is high quality and tasty. The service is very competent, attentive, and warm and friendly. Cocktails are the best. Not quite as fancy as Morton's or Fleming's, but a consistently better dining experience."

  • "This is by far one of the best steak restaurants I have ever been to. I am never disappointed after a trip to Ruth Chris's."

  • "Went here for a night out and everything was great. Steaks were cooked perfect and the key lime pie was a great finish to the meal."

  • "Date night here was a treat. First class service from all FOH staff. Food was good, sides were poorly seasoned. Our potatoes were very salty and the vegetable had no seasoning at all. Best thing we had was the steak. It was cooked to perfection and outstandingly delicious. Some negatives that will prevent me from going back was the lack of attention to the restaurant. It was very very dusty and cob webs hanging from the ceiling; a complete turn-off. The booth we were seated in had noticeable dust on the woodwork, which made it very hard to feel comfortable. Overall it was a good experience, however the lack of cleanliness of the restaurant made it an unpleasant experience."

  • "Been to Ruth Chris 100times or so. The steak was not prime quality . They also raised the price. Very disappointed."

  • "Looks like people don't get dressed up for nice dinners anymore. I dine at plenty of Steak Houses in all the big cities in the US. This Ruth's restaurant is outdated and people were dining in shorts and sandals....? The steak was very good. the spinach salad was lackluster and backed potato was under cooked. Do you think a steak house should charge for a side of béarnaise sauce? Well maybe, but $8.00? I don’t need to go back as there are plenty of alternatives. The only reason I did was because I had 2 $100.00 gift cards."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 34th anniversary at Ruth's Chris and could not have enjoyed it more. The food was outstanding and only exceeded by the attentive professional staff. This is one of the best managed restaurants anywhere. "

  • "Great food and service, and especially great to have dinner in a restaurant that was not insanely loud."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Spot on service. Attentive without being intrusive. The food was tasty and well prepared, though my wife felt her steak was slightly over cooked. All in all, a very good experience to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "I called ahead and asked for a nice, quiet table for us to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were accommodated in every way. We selected a nice cabernet sauvignon from a good wine list, and had fabulous steak dinners. There were a number of tables with children in the restaurant, but not a one was noisy. The atmosphere and service were just right."

  • "If yo love good steak and attentive but not overbearing service you cannot go wrong here. Always superb."

  • "Priced a little more than the standard "chain" steakhouses such as Outback & Longhorn, but well worth it. Great service in line with that of a 5 star restaurant with a great menu......."

  • "The hostess was welcoming. Our table was just in the way of everything/everyone so it was distracting when our chairs kept getting bumped. Our server recognized this herself and later offered us a table change. We declined as we were already well into our salad and delicious warm bread. The food was hot upon arrival and well-prepared. Portion sizes were more than adequate. The dessert menu looked as great as it tasted. My entree came with a dessert, but our server gave my husband a complimentary dessert and expresso for both of us. We appreciated their insight (without us complaining), attention and friendly service. "
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Not up to par with other Ruth's Chris Steak houses. The food was just ok, but for $100 per person (without drinks) the food should be much better. The bone-in Ribeye should have had great flavor. I tasted like it was marinated in dish water. The service was excellent, all of the staff is very welcoming and attentive"

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Shrimp appetizer was way over cooked, but our steaks and sides were up to Ruth's standards. Service was great but not like you would expect from an expensive big city chop house. Ambiance was good but again don't expect the same energy and vibe you would feel at a Ruth's in Chicago or even Providence. Still has the same prices. Steaks are exceptional but the "experience" is just good."

  • "I love the ambiance and great service that I receive whenever I go to Ruth's Chris. Please continue to keep up the great work."

    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "First off the host proceeded to sit up at a table next to the rest room when there were plenty of other tables available, he then upon our request sat us at a different table. Our meal was very rushed when we asked up front to not rush us. Salads were delivered before appetizer was done. Our main course was being put together back in the kitchen while we were still eating our salads and we asked them to slow down a second time. We had multiple servers and waiters and did not seem like the staff was communicating well at all. I ordered my filet medium, when it came out the waiter left, I cut into it and it was rare. The second steak they brought me was Black and Blue (rarer than the first, uncooked). Very disappointing experience."

  • "My husband and I dined at Ruth's Chris for our anniversary. While the bill was higher by some margin than our normal date nights, we felt it was worth it. The food was great. The service was attentive without being "in your face." Everyone who worked there seemed to know it was our special day. Definitely a go-to for a special occasion."

  • "Ruth Chris in Hartford has a great, attentive wait staff and is really a great place to enjoy a meal."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We had reservations for dinner to celebrate my husband's and daughter's birthdays. The lounge was so crowded that you could hardly enter the room. The parking was terribly difficult, and many patrons complained that there was no where to park. I know it was because of the large amount of snow, but it was frustrating. The restaurant was slammed, and many had to wait for their tables. With a reservation, we still waited almost 20 minutes. After we were seated the service was good and efficient. The beef was delicious, but the salad looked like it had been standing in the refrigerator for a while, somewhat wilted. Next time we will try for a week night in order to have quieter dining, but overall, a good experience."

  • "Went for Valentines Day due to last minute reservation findings. Food was awesome, service was nothing amazing but very friendly. In regards to steakhouses in CT, I honestly prefer Flemings due to their amazing food, service and ambiance, but this was a solid 2nd choice."

    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Mom and Daughter and family celebrating. We each got a picture of the two of us - nice touch ! Food was delicious and plenty to share. Service was EXCEPTIONAL. No hovering or constant checking "how are you doing" - which I hate - instead they kept an eye on us and did things before we could even think to ask."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Off the top let me say the food was exceptional as expected for this price point. The staff was very attentive and friendly, as expected, although I will say, I believe several staff members went above and beyond! A truly excellent place to have that special occasion meal. Outstanding wine list as well. So, the only negative I can find is in the set up and decor. And this really only stems from comparing it to the Ruth's Chris in My area Dallas. It just was not "nice" enough in comparison. And by that, I mean the overall feel, layout, walls, floor plan, appearance. It did not seem very "old wood". HOWEVER! This should not stop you at all. As I stated, and must emphasize, everything else was 5 star as it should have been."

  • "Ruth's Chris is our hands down favorite restaurant. The service is professional. You set the pace and staff adjusts. We have special requests and they gladly accommodate - and keep notes so they know next time. The steaks are always perfect as are the ample sides. Nice wine list, too."

  • "I eat a lot of ribeye steaks but your cowboy ribeye was the best I ever had!I dont know if it's 500 degree temperature you cook it at or what but it was spectacular."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "While the food was Ruth's Chris standards, the restaurant was overcrowded with no ambience. Lighting was very bright and it seemed like we were in a room that was make shift to add more tables. Price was high for the experience."

    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Had a wonderful dinner with my husband and a great friend. Had the booth in the back and it was a very quiet and enjoyable time. Food was awesome and service couldn't be better. One of the only places around this area that you can get a reservation and be seated at the time you reserve your table. Try the Crabtini, the center cut filet and the creamed corn (they don't have that too often but ask them they might have it). Also the banana cream pie is to die for."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "How can you go wrong with a sizzling steak? It takes very good and the service is excellent. The booths are very private and quiet if you're looking for a romantic night out. It is extremely relaxing."
