    My wife and I had a great evening at Ruth's Chris in Louisville, KY. This was our first time at this restaurant. I had the Bone in Filet and my wife had the Bone in Ribeye both were excellent. The Blue Crab appetizer was also excellent.

    First let me say it is one of our favorites to dine. BUT after having a reservation for a month we were seated next to a young couple and two small children. It was our anniversary and my husbands last day of work before retiring. We wanted our usual quiet calm dinner at RC. We're grandparents and love our children but we were not happy with the situation. It's a lovely place and we will go back. It was just an emotional day and the last thing we wanted was someone else's children.

    We go to this restaurant quite often. It's very pleasant with a friendly staff. Food and service were good with the exception of the broccoli au gratin which was a skimpy portion with a watery cheese sauce.

    This may be the worst Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in the entire chain. Any further comment isn't worth my time or yours. If you want a steak in Louisville try Morton's or Ruby's...they seem to actually care about their customers dining experience.

    For the first time in all of my visits my steak was not great, largely due to the fact that they did not cook it quite enough - I should have sent it back but then I'd be eating alone.

    Delicious as always! Everyone had a steak or the stuffed chicken & the two that had never been before, we're very impressed with the tenderness & quality. Tried the spicy fingerling potatoes, sweet potato casserole, mushrooms, creamed spinach & lobster Mac & cheese. All extremely good! Most had the strawberry salad & a few had the cheesecake dessert. Can't go wrong with anything!! Love it!

    Have been a long time Ruth's Chris fan, go about 6 times plus a year. Two out of the last three visits the meal was good, but jot outstanding for the price. Steak was cooked to order, but almost had a sour taste. The blue cheese dressing was different then just 2 weeks prior. I usually say they have the best blue cheese dressing ever, not this time. Drinks are superb, atmosphere wonderful. Just hasn't been up to par recently. Will probably try somewhere different for specialty steaks for a whole.

    The experience was very special! There was a "special" dessert provided which was a very nice touch and very appreciated. The offer and then the presentation of a picture to have as a remembrance was also unexpected and a very nice touch. We enjoyed the dinner and the experience very much. We noticed other celebrants on the nite we were there. Food was excellent, as expected!

    We were celebrating a birthday. The appetizers were mediocre and the entrees were worse. They offered a complimentary special dessert for the birthday and all my husband wanted was a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. The waitress said that would be fine but we would have to pay for the ice cream. The bill was $300 which included a $100 bottle of wine. Pretty disappointing! This restaurant has always been a favorite.

    Living in Lexington, we've noted a deterioration of the quality of "upper-end" steak houses, prices remain high and quality has plummeted. For that reason, we find it necessary and satisfying to make the 75 minute drive to Ruth's Chris Steak House in Louisville. This time, as always, our experience made the trip worthwhile. Our rib eyes were superb and cooked EXACTLY as ordered (for my family; "Pittsburghed" rare to medium rare; a most difficult doneness to achieve). The service was attentive without being distracting and the venue is attractive and "special". This occasion was for a combination wedding anniversary and 21st birthday of our son. If not for the distance, we wouldn't need a special occasion to dine here.
