    I made reservations for September 9, 2014 and indicated on my reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion. When we arrived, the hostess and manager were very welcoming and the manager made note of the fact that my mother in law was walking with a cane, so he indicated to the hostess to change our seating to the ground level so that she didn't have to walk far or go up any steps. Our server was Joseph and he was an absolute delight. He was extremely attentive to our needs, engaged all of us in light conversation and had a wonderful sense of humor. The food was excellent, as always and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening!!

    Our waiter Richard was excellent and had a great sense of humor. The steak was melt in your mouth tender... the spicy salmon was incredible... and the sweet potato casserole was outstanding! We had a great time and the bill only came to $120 (not including tip) all in all, great experience.

    Some people appreciate attentive servers. Not me! We had a server trainee plus her supervisor and it was overkill. My husband and I could not complete our conversation because we were constantly interrupted by the staff. The food was fine, but give us some time alone or learn how to approach guests without the grace of stampeding elephants. This was our anniversary dinner and it was not romantic, or very enjoyable. Also, we were seated in a small room. That was nice at first, but other parties arrived. Some of them ordered fish and once it was brought to their table the smell became unbearable. The other party had two young children. There went the ambiance. If we wanted smelly food and kids, we could have save $100 and gone to Chili's.

    After I raved about a dinner I had at another Ruth's Chris Steak House, my husband wanted to give it a try. Neither of us was disappointed in our visit to the Pikesville location. Our waiter, Henry, was very attentive and helpful and the food was superb. We both got the rib eyes, which were cooked perfectly to our specifications. Their creamed spinach is wonderful--melts in your mouth. The mushrooms were flavorful and the desserts the perfect size. A very good dining experience. We look forward to going again for a special occasion and trying .

    Inside of restaurant is perfect . The outside appearance was modest; parking is ample and very convenient. The chicken was dry and not very well seasoned according to a member of dinner party. I had fillet mignon steak which I ordered medium well, which I got very well done. The steak was good. I have had better at Longhorn restaurants for 1/3 the price though. At this restaurant order you steak medium. The sides were excellent and generous in portion they being sweatpotato casserole and spinach.

    Very disappointed overall with our meal. Four of us dined here on a recent Saturday night celebrating my husband's birthday. Steaks ordered by three of us were very disappointing. Not tender and not worth the price. Also, we were seating in a room that appears to be used for conferences that was not as attractive as the rest of the restaurant. They have a beautiful outside dining area that we didn't realize was there until we were leaving. We would have liked to have the option of being seated out there but it wasn't offered even though the tables were set for patrons. Not likely to recommend or return.

    We have been to Ruth Chris several times at this location. This was the best experience that we have engaged in thus far. Our waiter, Henry, was so pleasant, professional and personable. He made our experience a wonderful one. The ambiance was so relaxing for a hard day after work. As a small business owner, this experience was needed greatly and appreciated as well.

    Ruth Chris Pikesville was fantastic. Our waitress Nadia was incredible and very efficient. Food was terrific and each course was timed perfectly. Our table was in a quiet room with maybe 5 others. There was a flamboyant and downright rude couple in our room however the waitress and manager handled them with class and decorum so as not to ruin the dining experience of others. Thanks Ruth Chris!

    Great, hot meal, cooked to perfection, in a beautiful, elegant setting. Staff extraordinarily attentive, polite, amiable. Noise level acceptable, perhaps just a bit too high.

    Went with two couples on a very slow Sunday night. Three out of the four people had birthdays in July. When we walked in I told the hostess and not a mention by anyone. Not even one free piece of cake. Our bill was well over $400 and they couldn't make it special? Shame on them. I emailed the restaurant the next day because I felt bad for my friends. I didn't order dessert because I knew it was coming. I was called back immediately and unfortunately I was not able to answer my phone. I have since called back 4 times and left voice messages for the manager but no one has returned my call. Shame on you for not answering you voice mails and not responding to customer issues. Your food was excellent, as usual, but not your service.

    This is a beautiful restaurant with a solicitious staff. Too bad the food is slathered in butter, even when ordered without butter. Salads ordered with dressing on the side come dressed. Okay, Ruth's Chris, wake up. If someone doesn't want butter on their food, then leave it off. All of it.

    We brought our son to celebrate his birthday. Son Tom and self, Mom, have dined at R C previously, it was always an excellent experience for us. This event was my husband, Jim's, first time there. Tom and my food was to dream about. Jim's selections were a surprisingly tough steak and run dry lobster tail. Jim was also very disappointed by the side dishes he ordered. We chided him for not speaking up right away, he did not wish to spoil our enjoyment. Sadly, I doubt that he can be convinced to join us for dinner at RC again.

    My parents, sister, and I went to Ruth's Chris while they were visiting me from out of town. My steak was quite overcooked, and when I told the server this, he profusely apologized and took it back to get me another one. Not five minutes later, the manager came to our table with a new one, properly cooked (which was delicious). After dinner, the server brought me a complimentary dessert to make up for the mistake. Everyone's meal was very good.

    Took a group of six to Ruth's Chris in Pikesville for a night out. The service was very good, as usual. Drinks were refilled quickly, the waiter checked on us to make sure we were okay. The food was good, but wasn't as good as it usually is. The steak plates did not "sizzle" when we received them, and the baked potatoes could have cooked for about another minute or two.

    Good not that great. Did not seem like it was seasoned. Strangely seasoned. The vegetable did not seem fresh. When it was the special of day and cost nine dollars. My drink did not come till my main course arrived.the waiter forgot about it and what it was. The waiter did not explain menu like what is the classic. He only had one other table. The manager did not introduce himself when he came to table and he only came to one table. The one good thing was the dessert which was the bread pudding. The bathroom was clean but that in itself should not be impressive. . Would not recommend this money on this place. They think to highly of themselves cause of the name and have not earned it
