    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.

    Very impressed with the new building. We dined Sat. night with full house and the restaurant did not overbook. We were couple seated at 6 person booth in bar. The waitress Jessica was very professional and not try to turn table. Food excellent. Made future reservation when we left. Please not the restaurant has valet parking, bring your Lambo.

    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 know they are still getting acclimated to their new space, but the noise level is awful. It is not nearly as cozy or romantic as the old place. We had to wait about 30 minutes for our table (had reservations.) This used to be a favorite, honestly do not know if we will return.

    The other people in my party said that their steaks were good, but my fish was still cold after it had been sent back. They took it off our bill. But I was disappointed that one of the healthier items on the menu was poorly prepared or served...not certain which.

    My birthday dinner coincided with the official restaurant opening....we had a blast! Had a comfortable booth for 5 college age kids & me. Staff fantastic, kept apologizing for slight delays...due to crowds, etc...in our opinion, no apologies necessary! Kudos to the g.m. For a job well done. Great vibe, beautiful decor. I will be visiting again soon & often....perhaps to catch a game or hear some music on the patio Only comment...shrimp appetizer. Not BBQ prepared? A bit too well done

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    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!!

    You must get this steak when you go. I've had steak from every major high end steakhouse and this is the one I come back too. I even just had the Bone-in ribeye at CarneVino, which is the best rated steakhouse in Vegas (It's Mario Batali's restaurant). That ribeye was $144. And RC'd is better.

    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.

  • Average Steak House Now
    DinedAndOut
    Dined on 6/12/2014
    The food at Ruth's Chris used to be fabulous. Now, the average quality of the food doesn't come close to justifying the high prices. One can get a better steak at Kroger's. Paying a high price for low quality food doesn't make for a special occasion. It doesn't matter how many times the staff says Happy Anniversary, the food is still overpriced and fair. Also, prep includes too much butter/oil; to cover the average quality, I suppose.

    My wife and I went there to celebrate a major life event, and really enjoyed ourselves. It had been a while since we both ate there, and we soon realized that having gone so long in between visits was a major mistake! Food was wonderful like we both remembered, arguably the best steaks around. Service was excellent, and our waiter was very personable. We felt very welcomed there and more than just another patron dining out. Of course, it is rather expensive, but I feel like the price fits the quality of the food really well. Let's face it, sometimes you just need to indulge yourself on a nice dinner. Great for special occasions.

    We dined with friends and everyone enjoyed the evening. Although our regular waiter was unavailable, we were pleased with Curtis who also did a fine job. I really like how the company invests in training the staff so that they can take care of the customer requests and needs. As far as the food, the appetizers and salads were delicious. The steaks and sides were also fantastic. The only negative is that because the food is served so hot, we had to wait for it to cool a bit before diving in. :) We all ordered different desserts as well, and all were wonderful!

    Made the mistake of thinking this would be a good place for Mother's Day Brunch. NEVER AGAIN. What kind of steakhouse has a spread without one ounce of beef. DRY TURKEY and OVERCOOKED ham. What a joke. It's ok to come here for dinner but NOTHING else. Sad excuse for brunch. The local Marriott does a bang up job compared to this place. I do have to say the Garlic Mash Potatoes were good.

    My wife took me to our favorite restaurant - Ruth's Chris at 96th and Keystone in Indinapolis. As usual, it was a fine experience. The staff is friendly and atentive, but not obtrusive, The food was excellent as usual. We each had the Filet Mignon. We've traveled a lot and eaten in a number of fine restaurants, but no one's filet beats beats the ones served at Ruth's Chris!

    Started our night out running late and could not make our first reservation. The birthday girl was running late. I wanted to take her somewhere she hadn't been to in a long time. Plus it was our first date. Rescheduled on open table for about a hour later was very easy. We arrived and was seated in a very intimate corner of the restaurant that we found to be very romantic. Our waiter (Sam) was very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. We took his recommendation for appetizer and wine. A wonderful choice! The atmosphere, service and food was great. The restaurant and my waiter would come highly recommended. A birthday for her to remember!

    We have always loved Ruth Chris it is the only restaurant I have never had a bad experience at. I have been going to Ruth Chris for my Birthday for over 10 years, usually at the downtown location. May 3rd was my husbands Birthday. We tried to do St. Elmo all dinning was booked up Downtown Indianapolis so we went to Ruth Chris northside. We had a private dinning area for six and the Pacers where playing in the play off and my husband wanted to see it. he was going to be on his phone checking, but to our surprise that dinning room had a TV, and four of the six guest was Men, I could not have planned this any better.

    Our waiter did a good job of explaining the menu, and answering questions. Salads and sides are large, so sharing works well, which is nice, given they are individually priced. Service was prompt, and efficient. Noise level was pretty high. Steaks were excellent... Certainly top notch, which was expected. The decor is somewhat dated, but elegant.

    Ruth Chris is one of my favorite upscale dining spots. I compare almost every restaurant to Ruth and have only found one (Peterson's in Fishers Indiana) to even come close. But, the Easter brunch was just horrible. I expected them to have some prime beef, chicken, standard sides and plenty of them. But, instead we had turkey (whcih was moist, but nothing impressive), ham (just ok), COLD mash potatoes and sirlon that was borderline rare. The shrimp and grits were good, so that is just about all I ate. My husband was so disappointed the he did not eat anything. The desserts were like little cocktail desserts - terrible, just terrible, I will not return for another bruch at Ruth's ...sorry....
