    Went here with my wife for our anniversary and she had the lobster tails and 6oz ribeye which she loved. I had the New York strip steak (medium well). Only issue was the New York strip was a bit on the dry side. We also had Calamari as an appetizer(absolutely marvelous). We had mashed potatos and creamed spinach for sides which tasted great. Surprisingly there is no strict dress code at the restaurant( i.e some other customers wore sweats). Overall my wife and I enjoyed our dinner.

    We go there when we're in NYC. Pretty reliable, quality of the fillet has fluctuated over the years. This time we had a really good dinner experience. Our fillet this time was excellent and cooked exactly the way we requested. Staff was very attentive. Able to handle dietary needs and comfortably meet our time constraints to make a show.

    Have heard about Ruth's Chris Steakhouses for years so thought we would give it a try. Regretfully we were disappointed. The steaks were fine but all of the menu offerings were far too large for one person. No one needs to eat that much beef or food in general! The mashed potato side item was large enough for two but was very bland. We had the classic dinner and regretfully this was the only potato choice. We would have preferred a baked potato. Again the baked potatoes were quite large from the looks of the other plates. Salads and dessert were good. Service was spotty and steak was undercooked and had to be sent back. Our server could not answer questions about the menu. She went and found someone else who was excellent and answered our questions. Our server was not attentive or friendly. In this day and time it would be great if restaurants would provide smaller serving sizes and lower price points for those who do not want to eat portions large enough for 2 or 3 people. Not everyone can take home leftovers especially if you are staying in a hotel.

    I've been to Ruth's Chris many times over the years and the last visit was hugely disappointing. The service seemed like amateur hour, the quality of the food was poor, my steak was very fatty with plenty of grissle (sp?), the dessert was weak, and the place just looks a bit tired. I would go elsewhere.

    I requested a special, romantic table for two -- and they delivered. The service was impeccable and the staff was genuinely friendly, helpful, patient, and professional. They really connected with us. The steaks and seafood were prepared exactly to our liking. Everything through the crème brulee was beyond delicious. I guess that's why Ruth's Chris deserves its reputation as the finest steakhouse anywhere. My compliments to the chef and staff. I'll be back.

    Attentive Bar, helpful bussers, on the spot wait service - and the food / small plates: lobster, tuna, brisket sliders, Caesar salad along with some some beverages hit the spot - while the burger sliders we were not happy with. Had the lunch burger a couple weeks ago and it was perfectly fine. There seem to be something a lil off about the meat this time - its teh same meat - however the texture was almost pate / mealy like consistency. They promptly removed them from the table/bill.

    Outstanding food and service! -- The location is perfect for anyone looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion. It's walking distance to almost any Broadway show! They are VERY prepared to handle large tables. Our service was outstanding. We were a table of six and were seated upstairs along with several other large tables. We however, we did NOT feel squished in. the tables were large and dinning space was a spacious low ceilinged room. Although the dinning room did get a bit loud when all of the tables were full, it was never "noisy". The bar downstairs looked like a cosy, quiet place to grab a cocktail pre or post show. Not cheap. But the prices are worth it for the amazing food & service. A lovely high end oasis in midtown.

    In the past, the steaks have been somewhat hit or miss. This time they were a big hit. The filet mignon and rib eyes were done perfectly (medium rare)--so juicy, tender and delicious. This time they were not served on a hot sizzling greasy butter platter, which I never liked. They often continued to cook the meat. Also, the size of the steak on their pre-fixe menu has been increased. The crab meat cocktail was excellent as were all of the side dishes (mashed potatoes, broccoli hollandaise, string beans). The apple crisp with vanilla ice cream was huge (enough for 2 or 3 people) and most delicious. We departed very happy over our delightful meal which was close to perfect!

    My wife and I are fans of Ruth's Chris and go to our local (Princeton NJ) for special occasions. This was our third trip to the Midtown location. Enjoyed drinks at the bar before being seated, and our waiter appeared to be excellent at the get-go. However, when the entrees were delivered, my ribeye and sautéed mushrooms arrived, but all my wife got was her creamed spinach... no filet! Once the deliverer pointed this out to our waiter, he was quick to apologize and a filet appeared shortly. Then, after dinner, our coffees were served but we waited forever for the cheesecake...c'mon it's not as if it was baked fresh! A disappointing finish to an expensive dinner already marred with the entrees. I'll chalk this up to a onetime error.

    I booked our reservation on my brother in laws reccomemdation, and was blown away. It was expensive but definitely worth it. The service was great from the minute we walked in and said we had reservations, to the minute we walked out. The appetizer and our dinner were amazing!!!! To start we got a lobster with a spicy kick to it which was very good. For dinner, I got the fillet mignon on the bone. It was the best steak I ever had by far. My husband ordered the fillet mignon, and said it was cooked to perfection. We both ordered one side each and was able to share them. We didn't order dessert but did have the cappachino, and it was very good.

    We dined at Ruth Chris' on a Saturday night and had an average experience for a premium price. The service was fine, however, the food was not what we expected. Our salads (Ceasar and Wedge) were both mediocre, and the steaks we ordered were not much better. For this price, we prefer to dine at The Palm -- which is where I suggest you go instead of here.

    I have nothing but ultimate praise for this restaurant in this tremendously competitive market. The total experience from the reservation that was made through the coat check process was greatly pleasurable. With respect to the food, the complimentary wine, the recommended cocktail to the dessert all of which was delectable. Do yourself the favor and treat yourself to this NYC treasure.

    My wife and I had a nice post theater meal. The steak was nice and tasty, however I have had steaks at 1/2 the price that were just as good. Having never been to Ruth Chris steakhouse before, we wanted to give it a try. While I have no regrets, it is not a restaurant that I will visit on our regular trips to the city. There are better values available.

    We picked Ruth's Chris for a special family meal out as part of our trip to NYC. I had been to another branch in Dubai and other members of my family have recommended them from Florida locations. We were certainly not disappointed by the quality and taste of the food, or the service. Delicious steaks, great tasting fresh vegetables - our only issue was the portion size. We were warned they were large but still over ordered what we could eat. We'd learnt our lesson by dessert and had a fantastic individual cheesecake which was the best we have tasted (between three of us by now!) The restaurant made us feel very welcome and our 15 and 12 year old steak lovers weren't a problem. Thanks for a great meal and evening.

    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

    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.
