Diner Reviews
  • "Used to dine here several times a year, but not recently. Table had four settings and our reservation was for two. Handed menus but took a second request to have the other settings cleared. Felt somewhat rushed, particularly at the end when it seemed that table-turning was the priority and we were not lingering. Not a $100pp experience. It was very crowded so I guess maybe I'm in the minority in thinking this, but there are newer entrants to the downtown Nashville dining scene and it is understandable as to why these places have a weeks(s) in advance reservation requirements."

  • "The steak and lobster tail was fantastic. Piping hot from start to finish. The service was wonderful we lacked nothing. My desert was complimentary as a birthday gift. My only complaint is when you are paying top dollar for the meal and ambiance, business casual should me just that. At the next table was a lady in flip flops and jean shorts. At another table was a group of four two with ball caps and one in shorts with a tank top. I guess that the standards have relaxed. I had told my daughters that they had to dress for the occasion and they were a little upset with me when they saw others didn't have to. All in all the meal was great and our experience was wonderful."

  • "Service was slower than it should have been. Rib eye came out VERY rare but was ordered medium. I expected more from a place where you pay premium prices."

  • "I took my niece here to celebrate her college graduation. She had not been to the restaurant at Ruth's Chris before (to the bar, yes), and she loved it. She had a seafood special and said it was one of her best meals ever. I had a steak, and it was perfect as usual. She gets another degree next year, so we have yet another reason to return."

  • "Our food was wonderful. Our waiter must have been having an off night or maybe she was just new. We spent more than 45 minutes just waiting on the check and our dessert."

  • "I took my wife to Ruth's for my anniversary and it was rememberable. We got there and the free valet was courteous. The setting was very dim but romantic. My wife and I loved the selection of meat cut but giggled at the prices. It felt like the prices of a celebrity dinner. It was our anniversary so it wasn't an option. Food didn't take that long at all. Sides were a good size dish. Wine was delicious but did not have too many sweet wines.The steaks were so unbelievable. My wife actually would not stop smiling it was that good. The waiters explained every detail and answered all questions asked in a professional manner. I would not suggest a group event unless everyone has separate checks. Everything was perfect except for the price !"

  • "Business dinner for 5. Medium rare came out well done. Took a while to find waiter. Sent back and came back raw. By then the table was done."

  • "I took my mom here for mother's day because my Dad used to take her to the one in Houston when he was alive. I thought it would be a really special thing for her but the food was just good, not amazing. I feel it was overpriced compared to newer more vibrant restaurants on the scene here in Nashville. $18 for what turned out to be a 4 shrimp appetizer was ridiculous. Overall the $250 final bill was really high for 3 people so I'm not sure if we will come again or not."

  • "We just had a wonderful dinner at Ruths Chris Steakhouse ( our son's favorite restaurant) in Nashville. The staff were polite with a wonderful Southern charm and the food was delicious. This is about the fifth time we have been there and we ALWAYS have a wonderful time. I would highly reccoment this restaurant for a good dinner or a special occasion, such as our sons college graduation. "

  • "We were there on a Friday night. Steaks came out cooked to order but were very salty. Sides were average. Service was great. Ambiance? Not so much. Noise level very high. It's been some time since we were at Ruth's Chris and I think we're going to keep looking for that perfect steakhouse."

  • "25 minutes to get a drink, even then it wasn't what I ordered. had to ask for menus , everyone's steak was over cooked. They offered to cook new one's but we didn't have time. After that, the manager didn't even come over. "

  • "This is our go to place for special occasions. It might not be new and trendy, but it is consistently great! Try the sweet potato casserole!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The steaks are very good. Everything else disappoints. I asked our server to describe the steaks and quality to our guests from France. What we got, in addition, to the factoid that she was a 17 year veteran, was a reading of the chef's specials. No enthusiasm and downright boring. I then did her job after she left. A little spark can help sell lots of $51 bone in fillets! Any requested change resulted in a botched dish - smaller Caesar salad was interpreted as a salad with light dressing! I have been visiting this restaurant for years, and it gets more dowdy each year. I now get why other steakhouses get more favorable reviews. They are taking their clients for granted and the empty house I visited the other night, is proof."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The food was amazing, came out fast, hot and cooked just the way we wanted. Our server Tony was a little slow and took him about 20 min to bring the check to us, walked by us a few times and never said a word to us. Other than that, place was worth it"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "thie is a place I that would always prefer to any other place to eat. it was my friends first time and he fell in love from the service to the food"

  • "My first time at Ruth's Chris and I was really impressed. The food, service, and the atmosphere was on point. When I made the reservation I informed them I was celebrating my 15 year anniversary and when we got to the table they had sprinkled some little hearts and had a card congratulating us on our anniversary. Ruth Chris did it up right for us and I thank then for the experience."

  • "We come about twice a year to Ruth Chris and it's always an excellent meal with great service."

  • "Never let's you down no matter where the location. This old stand by has something for everyone. Nice wine. Good apps and a great entree assortment. Service always over the top. Try the others but you'll always come back. Sides large enough to split and desserts to share"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "This is the second time that we have visited Ruth's Chris in Nashville and had to endure a burned steak. I wanted the Lamb chops but they were out. I ordered a New York strip instead , so did my wife. Hers came out extra charred again. It happened on Valentines day also, last year. I ordered mine medium we'll it was ok. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed it all. Best place for steaks in Nashville! The only complaint ,if you would call it that, was that the sides in classic menu were a bit large. Just had to leave some. But overall, very good experience, and delicious!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I am a Ruths Chris loyal eating at the restaurant more than 30 times a year all over the country. The experience in Nashville was the worst I have ever had, and I have never had a bad Ruths Chris dinner or experience. The tables were so close the fire department needs to inspect them. The Thin fries came out burnt the first time and the waiter was nowhere to be found. Dinner was served sporadically and we poured our own $1550 bottle of wine. Do not go to Ruths Chris in Nashville I never provide reviews and I lived in Nashville when Ruths Chris moved to their current location. Ate thee 3 days a week and it used to be great They need to close it down, moved it and start again"

  • "This was my first visit to Ruth Chris. We were celebrating my wife's 60th birthday and my retirement. The food was excellent (best steak I have ever eaten) and the ambiance was nice. The service was slow and lacking to be honest. Our server after initially greeting us did not re-appear for about 10 minutes only to inform us with a tray of drinks in hand he would return shortly to take our order as he had been asked to serve a group at the other end of the restaurant that included a well-known Nashville superstar. After waiting at least another 5-7 minutes he returned to take our order. With the assistance from other servers our food began arriving, though I am still waiting for the bread refill we asked for three times."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "As always, the staff inside Ruth's Chris was great. They made my daughters 13th birthday dinner memorable. The only negative of the night was the totally unprofessional valet attendant. He acted like someone who was told they could make a few bucks and do little in return. After grabbing my tip, he walked away without even opening the car door for my daughter. At least I could show her how it's not supposed to be done."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Food was AMAZING! Free vallet was excellent and very courteous and reservation was for 7pm but we arrived around 6:30pm and was seated immediately. Very nice staff as well! Will be back!"

  • "I took my fiancee to Ruth's Chris over Valentine's Day weekend. I was a little nervous because the meal was definitely going to stretch our budget. We weren't disappointed! We both ordered petite filets, split the sweet potato casserole and asparagus, and ordered a glass of wine each with dinner. There's nothing "petite" about the petite filet. We both felt that this was plenty of steak. It was cooked perfectly to our desired medium rare. I was disappointed when I got to the last bite because I didn't want it to end! My only complaint is that the glasses of wine took aboute five minutes to come out following our food. This wasn't a big deal, however, as the steaks stayed warm on the 500F plates. Overall, this was an amazing experience!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Food was very good. There was a lull between our salad and the entre. I did order a second drink but the waiter forgot to bring it. He did apologize when he took my dessert order."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Appetizer, crab stuffed mushrooms; sides of asparagus w/ Hollandaise and scalloped potatoes excellent. I always wondered how Ruth's Chris serves steaks on 400 degree plates without burning the butter; this time both my wife's filet and my ribeye seemed "blackened" by the butter. They made a big deal upon seating us - and several other couples around us as the night wore on - about changing out the white napkins "for dark ones so you don't wind up with white lent on your dark clothes." That was the pretentious part tonight: why not just use dark napkins, or make the exchange quietly without all the self- serving fanfare? Overall good meal and adequate service."
