    Have been to several of these across the country and they almost always deliver a great Steak, still my favorite steak from any of the upscale steak chains. The Minneapolis location is no exception and it's steak was as good or better than the other 10 or so Ruth's Chris's I have been to over the years. Service was top notch, bartender made great drinks, and manager was phenomenal and checked on us multiple times. Got exactly what I expected, an incredible steak, but as always the high bill at the end of the meal reflects the high quality experienced during the meal, this is not a bad thing as long as you expect it.

    I noted our anniversary in our reservation and they decorated the table, greeted us with Happy Anniversary and even served us a dessert decorated with the years we were celebrating, lovely touches! The waitstaff was no top of everything but not hovering, that is a level of expertise that you can truly appreciate on a special occasion! We both ordered steaks mine was a petite filet with shrimp, his was a cowboy ribeye and we both were in heaven! We requested a quiet table in our reservation and were given a booth which was great until the end of our meal when some large groups started arriving. We were offered a booth in a private room when we first arrived, which we declined.

    My husband and I went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary and enjoyed a delicious steak dinner. I had been to Ruth Chris Steakhouse before and am never disappointed. Their side dishes are plenty enough food to share with another person. It's a great place for an anniversary dinner. Plan to spend no less than $35/each steak and between $8-10/side dish. It's expensive, but worth every penny! Will be going here again for another special occasion.

    We like to go out for a nice steak dinner on special occassions. A person can forget how good steak can be when you only grill at home. We had the Porterhouse for 2 and from the initial order where we added a crustetd blue cheese, to the presentation (plate set on 2 forks so meat was tilted towards my wife and I) to the sizzle in butter on a 500 deg plate, to the knife sliding through like butter, to the melt in your mouth deliciousness. Yes, I forgot steak could be that good. Side dishes excellent as well. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend if you haven't been there. Don't postpone any longer.

    This was our first visit to Ruth's Chris, and we were celebrating our anniversary. The service was top notch - the hostess had even put confetti hearts on our table! Our waiter took the time to explain the menu to us, and made wonderful recommendations as well.Our dinner and drinks were amazing - steak was cooked perfectly. We really appreciated that it seemed everyone went above and beyond to make our night even more special. Highly recommended!!

My wife has always put ketchup on her steak - except for this one - it was so good she did not need ketchup!! That in of its self is a miracle!!

    We come here because we like the consistent good quality steak that is done right every time. The atmosphere is pretty quiet, the service is very good, the staff is well trained, and it is upscale without being ridiculous. They have a decent number of side choices but not a ton. I wish they had a bit more of an intimate ambience but the steaks are so good I am willing to overlook it when I just want a really good steak at a nice restaurant. This place also never seems to get too loud or crazy either, everyone seems to know that we use our "good" manors here. I like that about Ruth's Chris too.

    The steak I ordered was extremely dry, and I took a total of three bites. The waiter didn't ask once how our dinner was or suggest how he could help after I pushed my steak away after taking three bites. I wanted to try Ruth Chris' because I had heard wonderful things about the establishment, but I was sorrily disappointed!

    I love Ruth's Chris, so much...The atmosphere, the food, the quality and the service are well worth the price. The service is outstanding, the drinks are delightful and fun, the food is out of this world and even though you are in a busy restaurant for some reason the atmosphere makes you feel like you have your own private area for you to enjoy. They don't have many kids....sometimes people do which is the only annoying thing but since the restaurant can't control that, that's really the only annoying thing and that unfortunately at this point can't be controlled so this is one of my favorite spots for an experience that adults are looking for in the city. I am and always will be a repeat customer.

    We recently went to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary dinner. We were asked right away if we were celebrating anything special, and we told them we were there for our anniversary. They came a few minutes later with a some "Happy Anniversary" and heart confetti and sprinkled it on our table! The spicy lobster appetizer was amazing! We had filet & Cowboy Ribeye, and both were cooked perfectly to our order and were delicious. We got the lobster mac 'n cheese for a side dish, and it was mediocre. We were stuffed after our meal, but they still brought us a tiny cheesecake with a candle and Happy Anniversary was drizzled in chocolate sauce on the plate. Very special touch that made our anniversary more enjoyable!

    My finance and I recently had a night out at Ruth's Chris...and wow what a night out it was. We were out to celebrate new beginnings and fresh starts. Immediately, we were taken in by an authentic steakhouse feel. The lighting was just right, it was clean and the host and table staff were more than friendly. The food was absolutely outstanding, one of the best steaks I have ever had. Pair that with a nice bottle of wine and great sides...perfect meal. I would dine here time and time again, no questions asked.

We said to each other that it was the best food we had in a long time. Loved this restaurant. Ruth's Chris is not in my budget, but it was for this special.

    We dined for the 1st first at Ruth's Chris for restaurant week. The food was the perfect amount for $30/person - honestly we probably wouldn't pay more for a person for another dinner outside of restaurant week. It was an okay experience. Nothing out of the ordinary. The plates were extremely hot and we were not aware of the reason why. It would of been nice to be education on that particular aspect of their business. Our waitress was very soft spoken during this busy night. We also purchased a selected pairing of wine of our dinner which consisted of a white and red. I was disappointed that our red wine was not brought out until our steak was almost gone.

    We have eaten at Ruth's Chris a number of times and the food is always excellent. This time we were struck by the excellent service. Also, we were there for Restaurant Week, with their discounted limited menu, and thought perhaps that we would be somewhat slighted in service, however everyone was very nice and concerned about making sure our experience there was excellent.

    We went to Ruth's Chris for Restaurant Week and it was the best dinner decision we've ever made. Our waitress, Mary, was the most entertaining, nicest waitress I've ever had. She gave us suggestions on what to order and what to do after dinner! We had multiple other helpers stop by to help serve our food, constantly fill our waters, bring bread, and clean the tables. It truly was the best dining experience I've had. I will definitely be back.

    As a fan of the show Top Chef, I've always wanted to experience a restaurant like this one. As a student, well…a place like this is normally out of my budget. Thankfully, Ruth's Chris participates in Restaurant Week so my man and I were able to eat the BEST meal of our lives. Our waiter had great drink recommendations and was very friendly but not overbearing. The ceasar salad was light and refreshing, my 6 oz melted in my mouth, and the cinnamon cheesecake ended the meal on a sweet, but not too sweet, note. We had a great time!

    We are not regulars at Ruth's Chris, but we enjoy this restaurant about 2 times per year. Food is always excellent and the service is wonderful. We were quite pleased with the offerings for Restaurant week and particularly enjoyed the Honey Cinnamon Cheesecake. Only down side was the bus boy who had a bit of an attitude with us, but our waiter was gracious and right on top of it. Thanks for a great meal.
