    Everything from start to finish is always amazing. Erin, our server, is always super friendly and meets all of our accommodations. The filet is always cooked to the perfect temperature. We love the crab martini and shrimp cocktail. Best lemon drop martini I have ever had! We will continue to go back to Ruth's Chris frequently!

    Great food and service so this post is primarily for management. I "get it" that you're packed because Morton's had a kitchen fire. Great opportunity to get new clients, but don't seat so many walk-ins ahead of reservations. No apology was offered, just a "you're table isn't prepared yet". As we started walking to the bar, the 4 top that had come back to check on their table was told "5 more minutes" 5 minutes ago wasn't pleased. The front manager proceeds to have this discussion at the intersection of the reception and bar so that no one can get by. It continued for a few minutes at the same spot. Really man, conflict resolution 101. As we left, same mgr is sitting w 2 servers in bar folding napkins. No eye contact- no "thanks".

    As a frequent diner in all of pittsburgh's top restaurants as well as this being my 10th time dinning at Ruth's Chris I was never so furious about the treatment we received We were in the back room ( which obviously is not prime spot in the restaurant) we were with clients and spent $1000 for our dinner only to be reprimanded for being to loud ! The guy that yelled at us was extremely unprofessional and if it wasn't for our fabulous waitrer we would have gotten up and walked out !! No one else in the room complained except for one couple who asked to be moved and believe me they were probably more upset that they were stuck in the back corner of the little "B LIST " room! Than the fact we were having a good time !! I'm never going back

Our server was excellent :) The food was delicious! We would definitely come back to celebrate a special occasion.

    We went here for my husband's birthday, there were five in our group and we all got something different from the menu. This was a repeat visit so I knew that the quality of the steaks would be outstanding and we weren't disappointed. Everyone loved the side dishes: the crispy fries, the broccoli and the lobster mac and cheese. My husband was the only one who got a cocktail but enjoyed a new drink that he tried for the first time.

    Our first experience with RCS. Immediately, I was impressed with the wait staff, especially our waiter. He was the role model of how a waiter should be. He was absolutely excellent. However, being a steak place and the price paid for the steak, I would expect the steak to be done to order. Both steaks ordered were over cooked. This was disappointing and the price paid for a simple bowl of steamed broccoli is a bit outrageous. There was nothing special about it just a bowl of broc. If you have money to burn, then this is your place.

    I recommend that the company invest in training the wait staff to be top notch in care and pleasantly toward customers. In my opinion, a 125 per head restaurant should be top notch. That's it.

    I love their hamburger. This one was a bit off. Not as juicy and seemed smaller. I attributed it to being slightly overcooked. Still good, just not the same as I always get. Service was stellar as usual.

    Celebrated a special family birthday by having dinner at Ruth's Chris. Appetizers, steaks, and sides were excellent. Only disappointment was the creme brûlée. We vacationed in France last year where we had it many times for dessert. The French versions were more "dense", creamy, and flavorful while the caramelized sugar topping was much thicker in France.

    Over the years I've eaten at Ruth's Chris steakhouse dozens of times all over the US. On Sunday, for a special wedding anniversary my family dined at Ruth's Chris despite finding our experience recently at a different city's Ruth's Chris to be seriously lacking. Unfortunately, we found that it is not city dependent. Their signature filets were of moderate quality with grissle and far too much fat. The sides were likewise of lesser quality than previously and smaller in size. The Caesar salad remained the only bright spot in the meal itself. As for the service, our waitress must have thought that she was in a diner. The familiarity with which she addressed my 80 year old parents celebrating their 60th anniversary was appalling. Done!

    The noise level was way more than energetic - you couldn't carry on a conversation. Having eaten here many many times before I was also disappointed in the taste and quality of my lamb chops. Another criticism was there was no time between our salads and main entrees - the entrees were waiting on a tray while we were finishing up our salads. Just a very disappointing visit on a Saturday evening when we were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. Will not make the mistake to go back there for a special occasion.

    What can I say? My fiancé and I celebrated his birthday here. I mentioned the occasion when my reservation was confirmed and they offered to seat us at a window table. From the time we sat down until we left, we were very well attended. Our drinks were good, our steaks delicious and we left very satisfied. The special-a starter/entrèe/side/dessert is quite a good deal! My only complaint was that putting shrimp on a 500 degree plate will over cook them every time. Still, we enjoyed a wonderful meal. We will definitely return.

    Overall, it was good. The steaks were good, though I wish they would have a choice of skirt steak or a thin cut steak. We did have an issue with one of the plates. But the matter was taken care of expeditiously and entirely to our satisfaction. The server was outstanding as was the manager who personally visited every table to make sure everything was to one's satisfaction.
