  • Best Birthday Dinner Ever!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/17/2014
    I went to Ruth's for my birthday dinner and I could not have been more satisfied. The food was delicious, and the ambiance was spectacular. They gave me a birthday card and decorated the table for me. I usually go to Italian restaurants for special occasions, but this steakhouse meal was one for the books.

    Ruth's Chris is a nice steakhouse. My biggest complaint is the the tables are VERY close to each other. Way too packed in for a high priced/high end restaurant. The food was good, and the service was good, but the space set up alone would make me not want to return.

    We were in Nashville for a long weekend, catch the Grand ole Opry, and an NFL game and had a great dinner on Sunday night. Excellent bar service before dinner and a great meal. Did the porterhouse for two, cooked to medium. The steak was cooked exactly right, plenty for two, great taste. Service was a little slow, better then too fast. Manager stopped by to make sure everything was good. Dinning room full upon departure at 8.

    i made our reservation online for my husband's 30th birthday. at the bottom of the reservation requirements, there is an area where you can put any special requests...i wrote that it was a special night for his birthday and ruth's chris went above and beyond. the table was decorated with happy birthday confetti, there was a sweet card from the staff, and then he got a special desert with a candle on a happy birthday plate. he felt so special and i really hadn't expected all the special treats! really really great night and the food was absolutely amazing.

    Although we have numerous Ruth Chris locations in my home town, the Nashville West End Street location is my favorite. I dine at this location every time I'm in town for business and they never let me down. The service and food is consistently good.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary. The service we received was on point. Waiter was courteous and timely. Food was amazing! Best filet I have ever eaten. Mashed potatoes were really good. For an upscale restaurant I found the prices reasonable and have plenty of options. Portion sizes are family style which helped in sharing. We plan to go back for sure.

    Ruth Chris will deliver a quality meal no matter if you frequent the Atlanta establishment or nashville etc... What sets the Nashville location above the others is service. The managment staff is more than accommodating however the real star is Robin. If your in the area an decide on Ruth Chris make sure you request Robin

    Where did they find this beef? It would not pass the smell test of the "regional chef" that allegedly resides at the Nashville location. Where was he when we came? Our New York Strips were as tough as Bridgestone rubber. They were cooked well and the service was good, but the quality of the beef left much to be desired.

    With all the new restaurants and high end steak houses in Nashville, we had not been to Ruth Chris in years. We frequent Prime and The Palm regularly. By chance we had an event near Ruth Chris and made a last minute reservation. We were glad to find the drinks just as delicious, the service up to par and the steaks still some of the best in town. It was like seeing and old friend, realizing they had not changed and why you like them so much.

    Sure it is a chain, but this place never fails. Always great service and spot on food. Service is without flaw. Make sure to get your stem oscar style. That right they actually have a great crab cake outside of the state of Maryland. The steaks are aways cooked to perfection and the drawn butter on a smoking hot pate is the perfect signature.

    ...Or steaks done "Pittsburg Rare" require and extremely hot fire searing the steak for a very short time. Most steak houses can't do it even though they think they can. Cut through the crusty black surfaces and the delicious aged beef juicy beef melts in your mouth. Sides were welk thought out. Anthony, our waiter, was perfect.

    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.
