  • "I make it a point to visit Ruth's in Louisville every time I'm in town. It is one of the finest restaurants in the chain. Food and service are always top notch. Never disappointed!"

  • "We attended with our kids (10 & 12) and another couple. The steaks were excellent and well prepared. Our server George took great care of our needs. He was attentive without being ever present. He was also very good with the kids as well as the adults. George was a big part of our enjoyment of the meal. We will definitely return!!"

  • "We are regulars at our local Ruth's Chris. Service is always good and was again this time with Christopher. The steak is ALWAYS delicious and tender which is why we return time after time. And, the atmosphere at the top of the Frank Lloyd Wright building is tops."

  • "Five friends celebrating a birthday asked for a bar table and we sat at a small bar height corner table. It was a little crowded with all the food and drinks, but we really enjoyed the casual, fun atmosphere. They offered happy hour specials on food and drink in the bar until 6:30, so we all took advantage of that and had some delicious food for a great deal. I had the fried lobster bites in a spicy sauce over lettuce, similar to bang bang shrimp at Bonefish, and ahi tuna with lots of cucumber, which was very good and very filling. Everyone said their meals/appetizers were great and then we received a complimentary dessert to share for the birthday girl. Wonderful!!"

  • "Lovely restaurant particularly for a special date night to celebrate special occasions or simply to enjoy an elegant meal with top-notch service. Food is served hot and well presented and is simply delicious. Only slight drawback is the noise level. We do prefer a quieter atmosphere when having a special night out. However; this will not keep us from returning as it was not excessive. Would recommend it to friends...."

  • "From arriving to leaving, Ruths FAILED at every step. The valet waited until we came to a complete stop before leaving his warm room on a cold day. Guests freeze/wait for valet. Hostess don't do coat checks. George, our server stole another servers table. We requested one of the best servers in town, Allen Gibson, but was sat one table out of his section. Shame on you George. We were sat when Allen was busy at the table next to us. I thought George was being helpful. NOT! The over seasoned and over cooked steak was disappointing. The mgr should know what the difference of medium and medium rare and not try to convince me the steak wasnt overcooked. The last straw was the valet that brought us the wrong car when they only had 3 cars left."

  • "Service is alway excellence. Sides are great and are served to feed 2. The steaks are great however they do seem to cook them with a lot of butter."

  • "In my opinion, you can't beat the sizzling plates! We shared a delicious ahi tuna appetizer and then I had my favorite stuffed chicken with sweet potato casserole! Had plenty to take home too. My husband had salmon and mushrooms. Wonderful!"

  • "Celebrated an anniversary. Food was very good, service started out impeccable but fell off a little as the evening progressed. There was a large group that was in our dining area, but not serviced by our waiter. That's why 4 stars for service. Steaks were cooked to perfection, sides were very good and all arrived nice and hot. Was provided a complimentary dessert for our special occasion. Much appreciated, but the chocolate "tart" was very bitter. Waited a bit too long for our check. Overall would go back and would recommend to others."

  • "No surprises! Great food and service. We go periodically and are never disappointed."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Overall the food was boring, bland or too heavily salted and spiced; my sea bass was just bad. Half of the fish was chewy and it was so heavily salted that I felt dehydrated till the next morning. Though generous morsels of lobster were in the lobster mac, it was elbow macaroni and nothing special for the price. The asparagus with hollandaise was bland but my salad however was great and my girls assured me their steaks were good too. I should also note that the wine was bad but my daughters did not want me to say anything so I didn't (I happen to know a bit about wine). Even though Ruth's Chris is a chain I've never had the 'chain' feeling when dining there. This time I felt like I had just eaten at an overpriced, 'fancy' chain."

  • "Excellent food... Perfectly prepared steak. Sides were great. Salad was huge and easily shared. Apps came out fast. Spicy Lobster was tasty but a little overcooked and lacked large pieces of lobster. Service was attentive. Sequence of service was perfect. Timing was great and courses were cleared and crumbed. Mise en place was on point all meal. Birthday dessert was remembered and delivered. On the whole it was a great meal, Ruth's delivered."

  • "There were a very select eight of us celebrating one of the couples' 50th Anniversary. We knew 8 could celebrate and communicate around a circular table, and one was provided and situated conveniently with the best view in the house. We could be satisfied merely complimenting the scrumptious food, and it was indeed scrumptious, but the ingredient that made the evening truly memorable was the way our host/waiter Christopher made us feel comfortable, congenial and downright important. This occasion demanded an evening truly special, and Ruth's Chris exceeded every expectation."

  • "If your willing to drop some serious coin this is the place for you. The food was excellent. The only complaint was it was very cold. I finally said something and the server put covers over the floor resisters that blow continuous cool air. Just wish I had said something earlier."

  • "We went to Ruth's Chris on our wedding anniversary. The steaks were excellent. Our server was attentive and personable. We will be back."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "This is a vastly overpriced chain restaurant. The view of the city is nice, and there are more waiters than you can shake a stick at. Originally, the menu was developed by a real chef somewhere, and then it was dumbed down so that the kitchen can be completely run by line chefs. The meat quality is ok, but nothing amazing. My steak was gristle-ridden (although cooked in a lot of butter, which is trying to make up for the sins of not-quite-prime meat. A lot of fat goes a long way in improving flavor). For amazing steak, try Peter Lugers in Brooklyn, NY. Everything at Ruth's is vastly overpriced...c'mon $8.50 for a small order of fries or a small side of mushrooms? I don't want to be solely responsible for their inflated rent and advertising"

  • "One of my favorite restaurants in Louisville. However, this night turned me off. Expecting the restaurant to be busy I made reservations two days before Xmas eve. That should have been the end of the process. The evening before I received a very curt and abrupt call after 5:00PM from a gentleman at the restaurant who informed me that, "They would not hold my reservation if i was late." I responded in kind that it was my intention to get there at that time, hence the reservation. Once there, the evening did not get better. The service was off and the wine that was suggested was sub-par. It was as if the server was trying to win some sort of sales contest. Sadly, he lost out on selling a $100 bottle of Pinot Noir by overhyping the $50 bottle."

The restaurant had a very festive feel and made the dining experience even more special. Ruth Chris is always on our list for that special dining experience."

  • "My husband and I and 7 others including family and friends had Christmas Eve dinner at Ruth's Chris. We had wonderful service and the meal was delicious! The staff did a great job taking care of our group as always. We really enjoy being able to share the delicious appetizers and vegetables, however the steaks are one of the best in town and the reason we dine there. We have the family over to our house on Christmas Day so it makes it nice to go out to a nice restaurant on Christmas Eve and relax with our loved ones while enjoying a great meal. This is the 3rd year in a row my husband and I have had Christmas Eve dinner there and plan to continue the tradition!"
