    The food is always good here and I love the fact that they offer great wines by the glass (Silver Oak). On this occasion they served one of the steaks a little overdone but responded excellently to my daughter pointing this out. The manager brought a replacement in double quick time and was really apologetic; first class service.

    From the valet parkers to dessert, Ruth's Chris is always good. We have never had a bad meal there. Salads are wonderful, steaks excellent, skinny fries, and creamed spinach yummy. Only one complaint - we like two thick slices of onion on the grill with our steak - they were done just right, but charging $8 for two slices of onion was ridiculous! Our waiter was marvelous - I believe his name was Modesto. It was a birthday evening and the birthday dessert was very nice..........

    We celebrated our anniversary at Ruth Chris and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a restaurant. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable and the food was out of this world. I told my wife how impressed I was with service and food and she agreed it was the best restaurant we have ever experienced.

    I took my husband here for his birthday and was very disappointed to see all of the IPhones and IPads on tables and people very casually dressed. I rated our service as fair because our server forgot a lot of things we asked for. She rectified it by buying us dessert, but overall I was disappointed with our experience. We were expecting a fine dining experience and just didn't feel like it was up to par. I would not go back to this location.

    I don't typically expect or want fast service at a restaurant like Ruth Chris, but I felt a little rushed this experience. I have been to this location before though and been fine so perhaps it was just a one off experience. The food was very good well prepared and delicious. My water glass did not remain empty very long.

    Ruth's Chris is now a poor choice. The food you get for the amount it costs is not worth it. The food was ok but not 300.00. There are too many other locally owned restaurants that are a much better value. For 3 people we spent 300.00 and one of us did not have any cocktails. The Ruth's Classics have gone up in price while also shrunk in amount and quality. There are restaurants such as Hole in the Wall or Geja's that are a much better value.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
