    The food is always good, been there at least annually for past 12 years. The corn chowder was delicious and the steaks are always cooked to perfection. The servers are always polite and courteous. It is a good place to go for a special occasion or just to out for a good meal.

    This is our favorite restaurant to visit when in NY but this time it was not the same. Not trying to slam them or anything like that, it just was not the same starting with the server (not very friendly). My partner steak arrived cold however the server set the overall dining experience for us.

    The food was awesome but the waiter lacked attention for the overall price of the meal...He only checked back once when the meal came out to ask about how the steak was prepared...We had to wait for him to go by to get a second round of drinks...He was polite and professional just not attentive..

    After reading surveys in different websites we decided for this famous restaurant. Service was great differently from what I read on trip Advisor but the level of the meat was lower than my expectation. A bit nervous, fat ands with too butter T-bone steak. The NY strip was the same

    I went with 7 friends, 4 from London and 2 from Manhattan, on a Sunday evening for dinner. All four friends from the UK said it was absolutely the BEST steak they've ever had. Their adding it on the "MUST DO" list for their next trip. My two friends also felt the same way. Ruth's Chris is so well run. ALL the staff is so friendly and "normal". None of the crabby waiters who have been waiting for 30 years and hate people and need you to "move along" so they can refill the table. It's truly the only steakhouse in Manhattan I'd ever go to. I can't say enough about it! Going again next week!!!!

    We were immediately seated with 6pm reservation. Wait staff was all very polite and prompt. Food was excellent. Ordered the Ruth classics and the filet was perfectly cooked. It was so tender, I hardly needed to chew. It just melted. Sooooo delicious. Ambience was nice and it was mostly quiet. Probably due to the early dinner crowd.

    We arrived early for our reservation and discovered that the bar had a happy hour. At first the bartender Cherish was inattentive, she gave us eye contact about 4 times in passing to check on other people at the bar who were already drinking before asking if we were ready to order. It was a little discouraging but after about 10 minutes she finally took our order. The Manhattan was a great starter, and I noticed a great happy hour appetizer menu as well. I will definitely come back to try it soon. Once sat, our waiter was amazing and the food was even better. Everything was cooked to perfection. We tried the restaurant week menu with a few upgrades and the bread pudding dessert was the perfect ending. I will definitely be back.

    I've been to Ruth Chris Midtown a few times before, and the experience was always good. I had seafood gumbo for starter, petite fillet with a bowlful of baked sweet potato for entree and bread pudding with whiskey sauce for dessert. In general, the courses were all tasty and of big portions. The steak was good as usual, tender and juicy. The sweet potato was delicious at the beginning, but became too sweet maybe after having too much. The bread pudding, however, was just ordinary, kind of dense and without whiskey smell. The waitress for my table was nice and attentive, and the location of the restaurant was very convenient. Definitely a good choice for restaurant week!

    I had high hope when I booked the appointment but it's not nearly as good as I expected. Went for restaurant week menu. The gumbo was way too salty and the salmon was way too bland. Steak is small and salty too. Too much butter... The environment is nice with good service but the food is definitely a bummer!

    My husband and I went here for dinner before going to see Jersey Boys. We took advantage of the NYC. restaurants week pre fix menu, $38.00 but we added lobster tails ( for an extra charge) . I must say everything was delicious. The steaks melted in your mouth, and the portion was perfect....they were served on sizzling plates.. The bread pudding and creamed spinach both are recommended... Our server Christopher was pleasant and very friendly...

    I found the gumbo to be a bit too salty. In this day and age when we are very health conscious, it is better for the chef not to add salt to a dish and let the diner add it if he or she wants to. Other than that, the food was very good. I was a bit disappointed that there was only one dessert: we did not have a choice.

    Ruth's Chris has the best steaks I have ever eaten in my life. The quality is very high and also predictable everywhere you go (NYC, Austin, ...). Whenever you want to eat a very nicely flavored steak that melts in your mouth, this is the best place to go. I recommend this to all my European friends when they visit the USA, and they are never disappointed!
