Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was average. Certainly not up to average for this particular chain. Filet dry and over cooked when ordered medium rare. Potatoes not even warm."

  • "We had a great time and everything we ordered was great. The service was great an all around enjoyable experience."

  • "It's hard to go wrong dinging at Ruth's Chris. Perfect for business dinners. This was a little nicer than the Capital Grille in downtown Indianapolis that we ate at the night before."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Food and service was excellent. Wine list was very limited and somewhat disappointing. They seem to be heavy in Italian wines and not much else. It was also really dark."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were celebrating our second anniversary and we were completely surprised with rose petals at our table and chocolate strawberries for after dinner. Everyone was so polite and made sure we had everything we could possibly need, as well as making sure we understood the menu as this was our first time there but we will definitely be going back again. Only positive things to say about Ruth's Chris. "

  • "Since this was the weekend for the Indy 500, the restaurant was packed. The noise level was rather loud, which isn't normal at all. Racing Fans no doubt. The service was outstanding, the food was very good. One of our favorite places to dine."

  • "The window table in the bar is the favorite spot of ours. I treated my husband to a 50th birthday celebration....and Ruth Chris' does not disappoint! Excellent meat, sides, service! It is our go-to for special occasions. "

  • "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!"

  • "Just decided to eat there because of friends comments. Was worth it. Great food - a little pricey. Terrific attentive service. Could carry on a conversation without talking over someone or loud music. Background music was nice and comfortable."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Service just did not seem as good as it should be at a high end restaurant. We spent over $200 for the two of us, for that I expect more attentive service. Had much better experience at Morton's and St. Elmo.On a positive note steaks were very good."

  • "Recently returning to Ruth's Chris the food was excellent. The wait staff very attentive and knowledgeable of all the daily specials (new addition to the menu). Celebrated my grandaughter's birthday and they went out of their way to make her birthday a memorable one. "

  • "The food was great like always. The server was a bit distracted. He seemed to get lost, once we had our drinks he forgot about us long about 30 minutes then came and got our food order. Everything was correct but took forever to order."

  • "Great steaks. Ruth Chris lives up to its advertising reputation.. and the waiter didn't cringe when I asked for sugar for my Irish Coffee."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "I did not neccisarily have a bad expierence, the food was good and the service was great. My issue is I have had the same level of service or better, and the same level of food or better at places that are 1/3 the price. I can honestly say the last steak I had at Long Horn Steakhouse was better then my NY Strip served at Ruth Chris's."

  • "we now know how royalty feels. we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and Ruth Chris' dining experience was the perfect way to do it. everyone was so friendly and helpful they all told us Happy Anniversary. food was superb Thanks for making our special day even better"

  • "Extremely good flavor & very tender and juicy. Salad was ordinary, but the loaded baked potato was great and the wine was good. Good bread and staff was very attentive. Steak better than St. Elmo."

  • "Excellent food, attentive service, pretty pricey and volume level was pretty high. Overall, I would definitely do it again for a special occasion."

  • "Long-time Ruths Chris fan - usually consistent across cities - food was overall good, but the petite filet had fatty pieces that were very chewy. I didn't say anything because I was entertaining a client and didn't want to call it out. She ordered the same thing and didn't comment so I am unsure whether she noticed the same thing. Food was good but a bit disappointing that a lean cut of meat was that fatty."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Very objectionable noise level in our dinning area. There were two large tables with incredibly loud patrons that made the dining experience very uncomfortable. Other than that, it was a very nice restaurant"

  • "My newlywed husband and I hadn't had an opportunity to have a date since our wedding in October. He had a wrist and shoulder repair done between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so throw that in with the bustling holidays and three birthdays in January and we were spent! We were able to treat ourselves to a night out just for two and Ruth's Chris Downtown was the PERFECT destination for us. It's the perfect blend of class and elegance mixed with delicious indulgence! The food is always amazing and perfectly prepared. The menu recommendations by Abby, our server, made the meal even more enjoyable. Our service was fantastic and we even had deserts packed up to take home. Truly outstanding visit!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "As always, the steak was superb. The au gratin potatoes had a tad more garlic than my wife remembered and, therefore, didn't care for them. The service was great and we got a delicious and ample size slice of carrot cake as a complementary birthday dessert."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were running a tad late for our reservation @ 6:15 so i decided to call and tell them we would be about 10 minutes late. We were told by the lady that they would only hold reservation for 15 minutes over. We arrived just as expected at 6:25 to be told by the hostess that we were lucky. We kind of shrugged it off then she proceeded to repeat that we were lucky that she didn't cancel our reservation and that we wouldn't have gotten to eat at Ruths Cris. The food was great as usual but i have never experienced that sort of entitlement by an establishment. I prefer to be treated as though the place I spend money feels lucky to have me there not the other way around. The valet was quite rude as well."

IHe new the menu and made excellect recommendations.I've recently ate at Capitol Grill, Fogo da Chu, and Peterson's. Ruth Chris had overall the best service. I look forward to coming back again soon.
