Diner Reviews
  • "The service was wonderful, but the food was just good. We have dined at several similar restaurants, and sadly this was not as good. The prices are sky high, and therefore the food should be much, much better."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food was outstanding. The presentation of the entrees was a little disappointing ... just the steak or fish on a simple plate."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Came to celebrate another birthday for the twins and it was a nice quiet Thursday. I'm not a huge steak lover but I do love the stuffed chicken. It's just amazing how stuffed the chicken is varies. This was the least stuffed of them all. Otherwise all the steaks were A+++ cooked as wanted, salads, crab cakes and sides Perfect. I just wished the stuffed chicken was always stuffed the same because it is a favorite. We will still be back."

  • "I had not had the opportunity to eat at the restaurant before. We were travelling out of town and it was my fiance's birthday. He wanted seafood and steak and it was right next door to our hotel. We ate every bite on our plates all the way down to the salad. It was delightful and I can't wait to eat there again."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The lobster was very dry. They brought another one, but it was not much better. The waitress said, "The kitchen has cooked several dry lobster tonight. You were not alone." No reduction in bill, just pay a lot of $$$$$ for dry lobster. All of the rest of the food, steak and shrimp, were outstanding."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We generally have gone to Ruth's Chris in South Barrington but since we were visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden with our daughter for her birthday, we opted for the Northbrook location. Our daughter prefers her steak with very little pink and ordered it accordingly. It was delivered medium rare, rather than medium well, perhaps the waiter mis-heard her order. She used the sizzling hot plate to further cook her steak but was clearly not happy with having to do so. She did not want us to wait while she waited for a reorder. I decided to try their skinny fries. They were not crisp nor did they stay hot for more than about 3 - 4 minutes. Live and learn I guess."

  • "This was our first time at Ruth's Chris. There are many steak options in suburban Chicago, but we have never eaten here before and decided to give it a try. Overall, the steak (NY Strip) was good and the service was great. We had 2 different servers and they were both very attentive. Overall, we enjoyed our night here."

  • "Three if us dined and all 3 steaks were not cooked to correct temp. All three sent back. One came back correct, one came back over done slightly, and the other came back as leather that could not be eaten by us or our dog. Mgr took one of the three off the check. Thx but never again."

  • "Went here to celebrate a friends birthday; everything was great from the confetti on the table to the service. Went on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was busy, but service was excellent. The server was knowledgeable, attentive and made the experience an overall pleasure. Just to note: the restaurant is in a hotel, so parking can be an issue but valet is available."

  • "Father's day at Ruth's Chris is a pretty great way to celebrate. Service and food were wonderful. There were some prix fixe options that were nice to see. A great evening."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "WE went for our anniversary and had alerted the restaurant to this fact. We were greeted with anniversary wishes from all the staff. Our server was very attentive. Our steaks came just as ordered. We had the Ruth Classic which is a very good deal since it includes soup or salad, choice of entrees and choice of sides. We have been here before and will return again."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We went for Father's Day. Ordered surf n' turf and traditional sides, plus escargot appetizer. Ruth's Chris is consistently fantastic in quality and service. They always deliver the food sizzling hot. We asked for a quiet table, we got a quiet table even on this busy weekend."
    Dined on 6/14/2014

  • "The steak is always tender and cooked to perfection. Any time I have ate fish, it is very good as well. The list of wine is varied and you can always find the perfect wine for the occasion. Service is excellent. Consistency and quality across all Restaurants we have visited: Northbrook, IL; San Diego, CA & Saint Louis, MO."

  • "What can one say about a steak cooked to perfection and then dressed with butter and Bearnaise sauce. It's fabulous. Not something we can eat everyday but it's a great place to enjoy a special occasion. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Great steak, but not cooked to temp I asked for. Everything else was amazing. Service was pretty good but very busy. Would defiantly go back! "

  • "The food was excellent!! The wait staff was excellent as well. It was a great place to celebrate mothers day!!! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Went for lobster dinner. Always got. 2# lobster. Conveniently only had 3# for $87. You got to be kidding me. Forcing people to spend that much money because it was mothers day weekend is a crime. And don't let me that at 5:30 on a Saturday night you were out'. Should have called your seafood salesperson and told him to get the 2# ones over that morning. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "First time dining here and it was a great experience. The food was amazing. Had the best calamari for an appetizer and a delicious ribeye steak for dinner! Perfect for a special occasion! "

  • "We celebrated our 44th Anniversary in early May. We were treated like royality. Our server was wonderful even to the point of taking our picture. Food was excellent and we were not rushed we will back."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Love this place. My wife and i are major foodies and we also love a good wine list. While the cocktails are not the most vibrant, they are good. We frequent some of the best restaurants in the city, and when we want a really great steak that is simple and delicious, this is where we go. Never been let down by the beef, but also haven't ventured beyond it. The sides are very, very satisfying and what I would call some of the best "comfort food" sides in the city. The only thing that would make my mouth drool even more is if they had a side biscuits as an option. Hands down, when you want a flawless steak, this is the place. I don't know why my reviews nickname is Underwhelmed, either. It could be better"

  • "Went here for my fiance's birthday dinner with a party of 15. They were very accommodating and the waiter made sure that we were well taken care of. Everyone loved the food"

  • "First time at this Ruth Chris and everything was perfect from our table for two, to the cocktails, the appetizers (the lobster was amazing) and of course the steaks. Throughout service was impeccable, this location really is Ruth Chris at it's best."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Our first visit to Ruth's Chris was very enjoyable and memorable. Food was delicious - every course! Service was impeccable - never had to wait, but with adequate time to enjoy a leisurely birthday dinner for my husband away from the kids. Nice "treat" was the birthday "confetti" awaiting us on the table :-)"

  • "First time at this Ruth's Chris but lived up to the standards we have come to expect. Great food and service. We were celebrating our anniversary and were very well taken care of."

  • "Celebrated a birthday here. The food was awesome and the service was impeccable! Definitely will go back."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The steaks were excellent and buttery. Always order a temp below target as the steaks continue to cook on the hot, sizzling plates when served. Our waiter(s) were quick to take our order but never checked on us and made us wait a good 15 min before we could order dessert and grab the tab."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "As always the food and service were excellent. It was my wife's birthday and they had the table decorated when we came, which helps to make it special. Our steaks needed to be cooked a little longer, which they immediately took care of. The Manager came to our table, apologized and gave us 2 free desserts -one for that night and one to take home. It was an extremely nice gesture and it shows how much they appreciate their customers."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Think of RC as a more upscale, fine dining place. Crabtini was excellent. Other items were not - wedge salad anyone could make, bbq shrimp app - 5 small shrimp, had expected big, beautiful ones - even bread basket was boring - some sliced up french bread that had been sitting around. Husband and I split 1 salad, 2 appetizers and 1 fish entree - one drink each - and bill was $160 for middle of the road food. Wanted a treat - did not get it."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Our family went on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was not crowded where we were seated, and (as always) the food was delicious, from beginning to end. The service was wonderful, and we had a perfect evening!"

  • "For the second year in a row we went for our Anniversary. This time surpassed the first. Very attentive service but not overbearing. Food was outstanding. BBQ Shrimp Appetizer was my Wife's favorite and we will definitely make this a go to spot. Price is moderate for the quality of food and service. Job very well done."
