    We always enjoy the service and the food. The Ruth's Chris Choice is a nice menu addition. It offers you a choice of several salads, entrees and desert for a price in the mid-forties.

    I chose to celebrate my birthday here because I craved a great steak dinner and get steak seldom. Kudos to the restaurant for acknowledging my birthday (red ribbon in table, birthday card and photo), and to an excellent server! However very disappointed in the food. Salads and appetizers were very good, but nothing remarkable, but main course was a HUGE let down. Ordered the 16 oz Ribeye, rare, anticipating some delicious leftovers. A proper steakhouse should know how to cook a cut like this properly but, instead of a nicely charred outside with some crispy fat (which gives the flavor), the outside was grey and unappealing and there was so much pepper, I couldn't even taste the steak flavor. Spent a fortune and VERY disappointed.

  • Reliable Steakhouse on south Broad
    PhillyByChoiceVIP
    Dined on 10/23/2014
    Given the proximity of so many theaters in and around south Broad Street, it's good to have a reliable steakhouse in the neighborhood for pre-performance dining. The tomato & mozzarella salad was nothing special at our recent outing but the lollipop lamb chops, offered as an appetizer but our party ordered as a main course, were delicious. The obligatory order of a giant slab of beef was fine but the sauteed mushrooms were bland. Nonetheless, we return to Ruth's Chris regularly before concerts and plays - the fare is reliable and tasty once you learn the menu.

    It's been a while since I've been to Ruth's Chris. Good steaks, well prepared. I've had same quality steak at lower prices elsewhere, however. Wine selection, while good, is also pricey. Not your "let's grab a bite" type of restaurant - special occasions only.

    I had only been to Ruth's Chris one other time--in Maui--and I was excited for my return trip (this time, in Philly). Unfortunately, I was left disappointed. Perhaps the decline in quality was due to it being Restaurant Week, but the steak was far from memorable, the potatoes below average, and the creme brulee lacking its signature hard shell on top. Another member of my party found a "Made in China" sticker on her steak (yes, you read that correctly), but it wasn't a huge deal, other than the mystery of how something like that happens. The only redeeming quality was the service. Our server was excellent and the staff very attentive. Perhaps I will give it another try when it isn't Restaurant Week.

    My husband and I have had every intention of getting to Ruth Chris for the last decade finally on restaurant week we found the time and we're not disappointed. The food was excellent service was perfect without being overbearing and the seat was perfect to watch the avenue of the arts weekday night action. I will definitely go back and with a reasonable happy hour it may be more then once.

    I had recently been to Ruth's Chris Steak house while traveling and it was fantastic. Restaurant Week was around the corner and I wanted to take my wife to the one in Philadelphia. Some restaurants really water down their menus for Rest. Week, but not Ruth Chris'. The petite filet was still a nice size, the sides we're an appropriate portion and the dessert was great, we tried both. $35 for all that and salad was a steal. If your objective is a great steak and a high quality meal, this is as safe of a bet as you'll get.

    I am a Ruth Chris customer, not only during Restaurant Week. For the first time ever I was disappointed. First there was a mix-up with our reservation, so we had to wait. The Hostess's seemed to not be on the same page so they were bickering back and forth in front of customers. Once we were seated, our drinks were ordered and served. Best Cosmo I have had in a long time. None of our food was hot when it was served. I think they were a little overwhelmed with the additional customers due to restaurant week.

    We went for restaurant week and we had a wonderful time!! The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, the staff was very friendly and the manager even stopped over to check on our meal! They were turning tables like crazy which is usually distracting, but they kept the noise level down and the transition was very smooth. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family?

    A group of us met here for dinner during restaurant week. The food was very good. Caesar salad well crispy and very tasty. The filet mignon was prepared as ordered and was tender and juicy. Dessert was a little disappointing - the chocolate mousse was not very creamy. Ala in all, though, an very good meal.

    I tried different restaurants during restaurant week to see if they are really worth the ridiculous amount of money they charge for steak and mac and cheese. The service was great and the food was mediocre. I would go back if they lower their price. But overall it was okay. had a great time.

    We had a great time enjoying dinner here during Restaurant Week!! Every year we go out for restaurant week and sometimes we go more than once that week to experience as many new restaurants as possible. Believe it or not, some restaurants treat you poorly during this time since the menu is discounted. However Ruth's Chris offered top notch service from the hostess to the waitress and everyone in between. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great and we had a wonderful experience. Lastly, we were celebrating my husband's birthday and the restaurant had a card on the table for his birthday, a red sash and everyone that stopped by our table wished him a happy birthday- even the chef!! They took a picture of us and framed it as well!!

    Since I'm not a big fan of steak I've skipped this place for years but it's been my loss. All the other dishes we had were excellent. The pork chops were terrific as was the salmon . And the creamed spinach and mushrooms were among the best we've had.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    My husband and I dined at Ruth Chris over the weekend. I looked online to see reviews and dress code and was expecting an upscale experience. While I wouldn't call this a fine dining experience, I would say that it was better than average. It was pricier and a bit tastier than a run of the mill steakhouse. It wasn't great for "date night", as it was a little on the noisy side, seating was very close to others and there was not a lot of privacy for quiet conversation. As for the food, it was fine. I can't say that we were "wowed" by anything, but we weren't unhappy with anything either. My husband had the ribeye and gumbo. I had the lobster bisque and a wedge. In all honesty, Morton's is my favorite steakhouse"chain" and it still is.

    The service was outstanding & the entire staff we very welcoming. George our waiter was amazing & very attentive! The food was just ok. We enjoyed everything but it all fell a little short for us. We ordered steaks medium, while they were tasty, one steak came out properly prepared & the others med-rare/med-well. Sure we could have sent them back, as the waiter suggested prior to ordering, but that would have meant the majority of the table would not have entrees & we wanted to dine together. For a high end steak house you should be able to get a steak that is perfectly prepared. The birthday girl ordered the banana creme pie, she did not get it because "the custard did not set" Again it all just fell short for our special occasion dinner.
