    I chose this location for its distance to the theatre district for a pre show meal. I was very impressed with both my waiters Frank and Andrew. When we established that we had a 8pm show to attend, they both made sure our meals arrived promptly and with the added convenience of bringing the bill at the same time as our meals. This made the meal enjoyable as there was no stress nor rush. I have to say my cut of steak was also very well cooked and i enjoyed it thoroughly. I would recommend Ruth's Chris Steak House as an energetic and delicious, stress free place to visit for those wanting a great meal & wonderful service before an evening show in the city

    Our first time at this location! Loved the ambiance and the service and food was amazing as usual! Per our reservation comments, they even decorated our table for my birthday! Only complaint, wish the chilean sea bass was on the menu like at the Garden City location. We loved our petite filets and scallops. Delicious and we had a wonderful evening at the restaurant. Hope to go back soon!

    We are used to dry-aged steaks/steak houses and I have to say the steaks were cooked well, appetizers were great esp the calamari. Drinks were a big plus, I liked the coconut ginger lemon martini. Good food for the price.

    NanaVIP
    Dined on 10/1/2014
    Not only was the service way below their standards, but they served a filet which was full of connective tissue and partially not edible. The waiter paid no attention to us and never offered ground pepper for the salads. By the time he came by to check and return the steak to the kitchen, it was way too late. After being at Ruth's Chris for probably 100 times, this was extremely disappointing.

    The server was great and explained everything to my wife who had never been to this restaurant and didn't know how things worked as far as sides. He recommended very good wines and as I said the steaks were done to perfection and were delicious. One area which could have used improvement was the mashed potatoes which were was not very tasty and needed something. Another area which I was totally annoyed about which was not the restaurants fault was a dining neighbor who could not complete a sentence without a curse word or an F-bomb. Again not the restaurants fault! I told the server about it after the couple left and he provided us with a complimentary desert which was very nice.

    HAve eaten at this chain in other cities, always ordered the petit filet. Tonight tried the 12 oz ribeye which was a disappointment. It was dry and lacked the usual ribeye flavor. (My ribeyes on the grill at home are better). Next time will go back to the filet.

    We had great service and the seasonal menu is definitely worth it for 3 courses. We chose salads, filet and lobster tails with potatoes and asparagus sides. It was my husband's birthday so the staff presented him with a special birthday creme brulee which was enormous. we had star glitter on the table and a candle in the flan. Apps, mains wines and desserts were all well worth it and made better by our server.

    My wife and I had the 3 course meals for 43 dollars. The salad and corn chowder soup were delicious. I had the 6oz fillet and shrimp which were very good but the fillet is small. Suggest they include the 12oz ribeye or even a 8 oz ribeye for 43. For dessert,I had 1 scoop of ice cream instead of the cinnamon cheesecake which doesn't agree with me. I hope this is not the ala carte portion they charge 7.50 for ice cream. I would be unhappy if they only give me 1 scoop

    It was the wife's B' day and we were a bit late after a Broadway show but were sited immediately. All I can say is that my family have visited RC in various states and we are pleased to say that in a city like ours only the top contenders can survive in the Steakhouse game. Ruth's Chris Steak House doesn't have one item in their menu they haven't mastered. Their appetizers are all great, the crabtini is served in that martini glass but my favorites are the ahi tuna and the specie lobster. We ordered the porterhouse with a side of fries and creamed spinach ('cause that's how we natives do it) - I don't think the kitchen could have been better that evening! Thank You for great meal RC!

    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.
