    Good food. Good service. However, we waited over 25 minutes to get seated which never occurs when using Open Table. I wouldn't be complaining if we didn't watch 4-5 other parties get seated in front us who clearly did not have a reservation.

  • THE BEST STEAKS IN INDIANAPOLIS

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    Ruths Chris is always our first go to for steaks. We happened to gk during devour downtown 2014 for our anniversary but have been other times and service was still outstanding as ever. I got my filet Oscar style....soooooo incredibly divine! It's worth the money and is definitely a treat. The steaks always cut like butter and melt in your mouth. When our food first came out, my filet was topped with the wrong accompaniments. They didn't just take my steak, they took all the plates, including husband's, to keep them warm. Our tables had fresh rose petals for our anniversary and we got a special plate that said " Happy Anniversary" in chocolate with chocolate dipped strawberries. Our experience was divine!

    With so many different choices to pick from every year on the Devour Downtown list, it is always hard to pick which place you want to try next. My girlfriend and I have now participated in the last three DDs and we were impressed once a again. The food was quite delicious, and the service was splendid. We only wish we could go again, but we unfortunately do not have the funds. Yes, it was a bit pricey, but the price is well worth it. It's a romantic setting, it helps keep out the rift raft, and when you are in your early to mid 20's it becomes kind of an adventure. Neither of you know proper etiquette dining so you have to observe others and see how they act. It adds another spice to the mix. Overall though the experience was great!

    Been here a few times, but a few in our group of 9 had not. They were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it all. Dining here during Devour Downtown made it even better. Our server heather was very good, very at tentative, and sounded just like Heidi Klum. She knew the menu, was personable and very good at her job.

    We dined at Ruth Chris for my husband's birthday as he loves steak. This was our first visit although the restaurant has been in town for quite some time. The staff was very attentive and was great to fully explain their menu (and portion sizes). My husband decided on his favorite ribeye and was NOT disappointed. I chose a special Mixed Grill offering to take advantage of small portions of several offerings. I was not disappointed, but after one taste of the ribeye knew I would be returning for a New York Strip.

    The food at this location is on a par with any Ruth's Chris I have eaten at (excellent). The location is convenient for anyone staying downtown and a short walk from the Convention Center. Our group sat in front and the noise level was fairly high. For a quieter meal, I would recommend at table towards the back. The service was attentive but not outstanding. I would eat at this location again the next time I'm in Indianapolis.

    My coworker and I were there with two customers. Everyone enjoyed their steaks and seafood. The atmosphere was fantastic! I don't drink personally but you always provide a lovely NA St. Pauli Girl beer for me when I come. And of course my associate and customers enjoyed your fine wine and other adult beverages. Our only issue is that one of my customers had ask for a carry out desert to take home to his wife and when the check arrived the waiter had tallied the entire dinner against my customer's personal credit card. He only wanted to pay for the desert with his card. My card was charged but charges were not removed from my customers card. Please help correct this issue that occurred on June 18th about 9:30 pm. Thank you.

    Ruth's Chris restaurants should not entirely be seen as a chain restaurant - because this particular restaurant is stellar and is absolutely one of the finest steak restaurants where I've eaten. I don't live in Indianapolis, so I don't get here as often as I'd like to - but the quality of the meat, and how it is prepared is consistent (for 15+ years) and is perfect. The downtown Ruth's Chris is the best in the city - and can hold its own on a national level. Within Indpls this Ruth's Chris is certainly better than St. Elmo's, Morton's, and Sullivan's. If you want one of the best steaks you've ever eaten - you need to dine here!

    Went to Indy for the Indy GP and to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Great food and a great time. Nice wine list. Since you are having a steak, I recommend the Stags Leap Cabernet $$$. I had a rib eye and my wife had the filet. Both were cooked perfect, tender and very tasty. Side dishes are large enough for two and they encourage you to split them. My wife and I split a salad and the hash browns. The hash browns were ok. Not bad, just ok. I think I would try another side next time and there will be a next time. For dessert we split the carrot cake. Best carrot cake I have ever eaten. While it is a bit pricey, you get what you pay for. The service was fantastic and made a special night out, special. Thank you!
