Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Ruth's Chris has been my wife and my favorite restaurants for over 20 years. Never a bad meal or bad experience. First rate wait staff. The best steak by far in Pittsburgh."

  • "great food but a bit on the expensive side for what you get. their swordfish was done nicely and the steak is always cooked to perfection. A bit too much salt on the food in general but otherwise cant complain except for the price.."

  • "Excellent dinner with all the trimmings. The best steak dinner I have eaten in months."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food is always good at Ruth's Chris. The Piitsburgh restaurant feels very "corporate" with an atmosphere more suitable for business lunches and dinners. Not very warm and inviting."

  • "The steak was somewhat disappointing in flavor and preparation. The place was busy, but the service a little slow beyond that as an excuse."

  • "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."

  • "Ruth's Chris is and always has been the best of the chain steak houses. Their consistency is amazing. I doubt you will ever get a bad meal there and the service is always top flight."

  • "The food and service was outstanding. My wife did not like her dish (I thought it was excellent), so they brought her something else instantly and took it off our bill. They were so quick with the replacement meal that we still got to eat together."

  • "Nice lunch but a little pricey. $90 for two of us. Could feed some poor townships for that much."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "It was a very nice relaxed atmosphere for Mother's Day. Our waiter, Marcus, could not have been nicer and more accommodating with our 9 year old daughter!"

  • "Enjoyed hardy steak dinner with two of my steak eating buddies. All agreed, steaks perfectly seasoned and made to specified temperature. Enjoyed oysters and sides of cream spinach and fries. Services was top notch. Couldn't have been more pleased."

  • "We loved our dinner and our server was wonderful. Have always had a positive experience dining there! We will continue to come back and celebrate our family occasions "

  • "I requested David's section, as he has served me many times. - His attention to his customer is amazing! - I wish there were more stars to rate him. He is an excellent waiter and I will exclusively ask for him when he is working. Ruths Chris is my favorite place to eat and I hope that you keep the Triple Play menu, its a winner. But when I come for dinner - I know I will never get disappointed."

  • "Minimal room between tables. Rushed service. Felt like I was being pushed (at 8:30 at night). For the money I would go to the capital grill or Morton's."

Our waitress created a very memorable dessert plate for our special evening. Will definitely return for another evening out. "

  • "Quite overpriced beyond the natural point for premium dining. Nevertheless the place was full of people with expense accounts. "
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "The whole dining experience was terrible. This was not our first time eating at this restaurant. The wine list is limited. The food is over priced, chewy, and lacks flavor. I would recommend another restaurant where the steaks are moist, the waiters are on the ball and do not rush the diners. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone."
