    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Food and service were excellent as always. The new location is very upscale and tastefully designed but the noise level in the bar area is very loud to the point where conversation is difficult when it's crowded. That noise level is expected in a Broad Ripple night spot but not what we expect in a first class steakhouse atmosphere. The noise level at our dining table was moderate-quiet so dining was quite pleasant. The steaks were perfection and that's what we went for. We ordered the shoestring potatoes as a side and they were crisp and flavorful but it seems such a waste to make the only option a $9 side dish with enough quantity for 4 or 5 people. We ate less than half of them - can't imagine the wasted food that is discarded nightly.

    We requested a quite dining room (as opposed to the very noisy bar) and we were seated in the Wine Room which was perfect. We had some difficulty "communicating" with our original waiter on several items so requested a change and were immediately accommodated. From then on we were treated like royalty and received complimentary desserts and champagne since we were celebrating 60th wedding anniversaries. The Food was excellent.

    This was our first vist to the new northside location. Same great food and service and the new facility is very nice. We have traveled quite a bit and have never found a better filet than the one served here. Add a salad, a sweet potatoe casserole, and a vegtable and you have a unbeatable dining experience. There is an extensive wine list to choose from. Desserts are excellent as well. We usually take ours home.

    We are huge RC fans- so much that we went to closing night of old location and couldn't wait for the new. Got there and they said they couldn't guarantee our request for bar seating since we booked through Open Table (3 weeks in advance BTW). We ended up outside and while nice- the service was unacceptable - waited 30 mins for a bottle of wine. 20 for the second. Appetizers came before our drinks.Overall waited 50 mins for appetizers/drinks. The steaks were great so that salvaged what was a supposed to be a very special occasion. No apologies or make good from anyone even though our bill was over $600.00. for 4. Disappointing. Definately need to work out service at the new location- always had great service in the past hope it changes.

    I have always considered Ruth Chris to be one of the top Steakhouses in Indy. Unfortunately they are suffing growing pains in their new location. Food was excellent service is extremely poor. We had a table of 7 waiter forgot to bring my salad. When we asked for it he said he would be right back but never came back instead our steaks came out. Asked for a glass of wine with dinner. Wine was brought out when the dessert menus hit the table. Through out the evening waiter never can to check table. He was simply the order laker. He and his serving team were not on the same page. I will wait until they get their act together prior to recommending the new Ruth Chris iotacation. Time will tell if you pay top dollar you expect top service.

    All steaks were prepared as requested. Unfortunately all had too much salt which detracted from the meat itself. Hash Brown potatoes were hot but were topped with cheese and something else that was not described on the menu. Could have done without the toppings.

  • Not your typical Ruth's experience

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    When you think of Ruth's, most think of a classic steakhouse ambiance with impeccable service. The new location at 86th/Keystone was a huge disappointment. From the beginning, the service was not what we have come to know and expect. Reservation was for 8:15; arrived at 8:10 and was told it'd be a few minutes until our table is ready - no biggie. So we went to the bar to grab a glass of wine. After standing at the bar for ~15 minutes with no service, checked back in w/ hostess at 8:25 - table still not ready, but the hostess suggested we head to the "quieter" bar upstairs. Finally sat at 8:45. The ambiance was not your classic steakhouse atmosphere. It felt like we were in a loud trendy bar. Next time, we will go to the downtown location.

    Filet was delicious! Broccoli was dynamite. Hash browns and mushrooms were average. Caprese and Chopped salads were great! The drink menu offers a large variety, and the drinks are named with a northside Indy spin, like the Caramel Housewife, too funny! The two story, two bar venue is beautiful, roomy and full of stylish decor. Servers and staff are knowledgable and eager to help! I will definitely go back!

    My friends and I dined out on the patio at the new location. Nice summer night on the pretty stone patio: comfy, outdoor seating for those relaxing with drinks; tables for diners; and live music. Staff - attentive. Food/wine - great. All good until it got dark outside. That's when two old-time lamp posts flanking either end of the patio were turned on. I happened to be facing one of the lamp posts. The lights were so bright, I could not see my friend sitting directly across from me. We asked the waiter if the lights could be dimmed. He went to check, but nothing happened. Most of the meal, my face was in a bright spotlight. Ugh - I had a headache by the time we left. Someone did come by as were paying and removed a couple bulbs. Too late.

    Went to celebrate son's 16th birthday. Two of the four steaks were scorched on one side and under cooked on the other. Sent one back and new steak was rare when we ordered medium. Ruined whole evening. For a steakhouse and price point, should be able to prepare the steak accordingly to how it is ordered.

    Placed in a private room! Wow! Not every server in the place was grabbing wine from that room! Annoying! 45 minutes later I had to ask the hostess for a server. 6 top 900.00 in wine and two of our steaks over cooked, second time around only one was over cooked, both were taken off the bill, not the servers faults. Wines where great.. Should have just drank!!!!

    Enjoyed the experience. The bar is noisy when the music is undoes but it doesn't carry over to the dining rooms. We had a reservation and arrived in time. However we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. We were offered bar seating but it was an anniversary dinner and we wanted to be able to talk without distraction. The barstools were occupied so we had to stand in a very busy waiting area.

    Went to Ruth's Chris for my Birthday. The restaurant décor was nice and the food was wonderful!!!! Got the fillet and crab combination with a side of creamed spinach. The steak was tender and seasoned just right with just a little salt a pepper. Not too much like other restaurants. Got a Crème Brule for dessert and it was great. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal. Would highly recommend Ruth's Chris.

    We went to Ruth Chris's last week and were quite disappointed. It is possible that because they are moving to a new location next month they have just let things slide a bit. We ordered the wedge salad to start which was outstanding. The sides of asparagus and creamed spinach were also excellent. I'm sorry to say that the crab cakes were extremely disappointing. This is not what we expected from a restaurant of this caliber. They were absolutely mediocre and should be taken off the menu. The staff should go to Mesh on Mass Ave and try the crab cakes there which are in a league of their own at a lesser price. It was foolish to think we could go to this steakhouse and try something off the menu that was not steak. Bummer!!

    My wife and I were very pleased with this dining experience. The food was prepared just as we had ordered. The salads were fresh and the steaks cooked to our preferences. The wait staff and management made their rounds to ensure we were well serviced. Maybe one too many times. Most likely due to our early reservation to avoid the issues of an overcrowded steak house. Overall, a very good dining experience. Ruth's Chris is still a good place for steak.
