    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 have dined at Ruth Chris all over & I was disappointed our waitress seemed distracted our seafood tower was skimpy my scallops came out cold. It was our Anniversary I didn't complain but did leave most of my diner. I won't rush back we paid bill left 17% tip that was not earned.

    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.

    I won't order a filet anywhere else because I know it can't come close to the quality and taste. Always have a tough time deciding between the Spicy Lobster or the Ahi Tuna appetizer.

    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.

    Our meals were wonderful as always. I had the mixed grill which I always get and Nancy had the appetizer trio and lobster bisque which was also awesome. It is the best bread I've ever had also. Right down to the drinks, everything was great. We are never disappointed when we eat at Ruth Chris's.

    Drive to Mohegan Sun (3 hours) from Northwest CT to attend Saturday Night Fights at the Casino. Coincidently also celebrated 30 year wedding anniversary that weekend. Have been to Ruth's Chris numerous times in the past, but admittedly it has probably been 10 years. Ruth's hasn't skipped a beat. Salad, steak and sides were perfect.

    We were hoping to try the Sunday brunch with the Bloody Mary bar. Server said no brunch since it was a "holiday." I wish someone would have told us, under the comment section of my reservation I typed in Sunday brunch. We did get a lunch menu but it was with a bit of an attitude. Who wants a steak at 12 noon??
