    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.

    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.

    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 !
