    My boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday here. The staff was very awesome. My boyfriend had a flower arrangement delivered to the restaurant before we arrived. The staff was so kind to set up our table so nice with the arrangement before our arrival. Our waiter Daniel was awesome, also the others staff members we encountered. The food was excellent; I had the berries with cream sauce and sorbet as my FREE dessert with dinner. The ambiance was great with the exception of a very loud table close by. My overall experience at RC, Mohegan Sun was great. Thanks again

    The meal I had (filet mignon) was the most delicious piece of meat I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and served on a hot dish to keep the meat warm during dining. The sides were also very good. The wine was outstanding. The meal is pricey, but worth every penny. I'd go again without a doubt.

    Well this was my boyfriends birthday so I wanted to take him somewhere classy. As this was my first time eating there, it lived up to it's reputation. The food was excellent & I have eaten at many iron chef restaurants in NYC & AC so it is exciting to have something of this caliber in our area! Our server John was amazing as well as all the other staff that assisted us. My bf said it was the best birthday he's had so thank you!

    It seems expensive due to everything being a la carte, but you get what you pay for! The steak was cooked to perfection, the sides are large and so you can share them, the servers are detail oriented and we didn't have to wait for a thing! It's a must try!

    I love this place but not happy with server- seemed a bit unpleasant but accommodating. Server was not truthful and wanted to charge more if I switched a side. I may not return a 3rd. time- Caesar salad soggy & steak for two was a bit too dry @ medium well.

    The steaks were nice pieces of meat, just not prepared the way a steak should be. Because the steak was not allowed to rest for about ten minutes before serving, all the juices came flooding out in the first cut of meat, not having the chance to reassemble into the meat, just keeping the steak a bit on the tough side. The steak was cooked well, medium rare, just not a very tender piece of meat for a prime t-bone. Quite disappointing actually. A manager came to our table and said the steak "sounded good", referring to the sizzle. I would have preferred it be quiet and well rested before being brought to the table. This is an ordinary restaurant serving good steaks prepared poorly at extremely high prices..quite a trick.

    We had two meals: ribeye, and shrimp and scallions. The ribeye was very good. The shrimp and scallions only came with two shrimp and three scallions, so it seemed a little short of a full meal. We ordered lobster mac and cheese, which was not very good, and asparagus with hollandaise, which was very good.

    The food was excellent. They have two special priced menus which are on their regular menu. The portions are very substantial and we older folks tend to eat lesser amounts. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Make reservations early, the restaurant is always full. We look forward to our next visit.

    Went here for my fiance's birthday. The food was delicious. However, they ran out of the drink that he wanted and did not comp us for another one. Also,they did not put candle in the dessert cake or make the experience special even though I told the hostess that we were celebrating his birthday. Overall, the food was well worth it, but the service could have been better.

    This restaurant was not up to normal standards of Ruth's Chris restaurants we have previously visited. The steak was fatty and had a lot of grizzle. The creamed spinach was the same as we were accustomed to. The lyonnaise potatoes were overcooked and greasy. The coffee was weak.

    We are repeat customers and always had great food and service. This time they were a little off. I had the lobster and it was the toughest I ever had. Might I add it was $72! Very disappointed. Our waiter last 2 times was great, this time our waitress was not anywhere near as attentive. Ordered an expensive wine and no one ever came over to refill our glasses. A little off for an expensive bottle of wine and a Remy Martin after dinner drink. Party of 5 sat down when we were leaving and apparently one of the workers knew them & the got great service. Won't be back anyime soon.

    Everything from the moment we entered the restaurant was exceptional. Unbelievable taste in every thing we tried. From the spicy lobster, crab cakes, salad, the filet mignon with jumbo shrimp, the cowboy ribeye, potatoes au gratin and the amazing deserts (creme brulee and the apple crumb tart with the vanilla bean ice cream) was truly amazing. We did get what we paid for.

    restaurant was wonderful as usual; however, there was a problem with the ordering of wine. Wine menu showed a glass of Pinot to be $12. Whereas we were charged $18. In questioning the waitress we were advised there was more than one Pinot and it was up to us to say which one we wanted. did not realize that. Usually assume the waitress would point that out and we would then choose which one we wanted - not for the waitress to arbitrarily choose the more expensive one. Because of this we reflected our opinion in her tip. not nice!

    Very nice birthday celebration. Service was excellent - appetizer, sides and steak fabulous. Would not order seafood however. Cold scallops and very dry with no seasoning. Same for shrimp. Specialty drinks strong but very good. Will go again but not to this one in the casino - atmosphere not as good as Del Salvos or The Palm which are comparable price-wise.

    The service here is stupendous. The food is great and we keep going back. Only negative thing to say is they used to have a wine menu but now they have an iPad with a list of all the wines on the iPad. Although it's useful, we like the wine menu better. It's easier to navigate and cleaner. Everyone touches the iPad's screen and then you eat with dirty hands. If you're ordering wine then bring a towelette or hand sanitizer. Love this place.

Right down to the drinks, everything was great. We are never disappointed when we eat at Ruth Chris's.
