Diner Reviews
  • "This was a very good dinner, but just fell short of other steakhouses in that class (Morton's, The Capital Grill). It still gets a recommendation and would definitely return."

  • "Having been previously notified that It was our Anniversary, Ruth's Crists made every effort to make this occasion special. When we arrived at our table it was accented with Rose petals. My wife loves it. This was also an indication for our server to wish is a Happy Anniversary. The service wa excellent and waiter was very attentive. Will definitely go back. Thanks again."

  • "As a regular customer at Ruth Chris, especially this one I was disappointed in the filet for the first time. Three our of the four filets were more well done than ordered (we ordered medium) and for the first time none of them came to the table sizzling in butter like they have always done in the past. Perhaps it was because it was dry but the filet which always "melts in my mouth" was chewy. Always willing to spend more on a reliable Ruth Chris filet but this meal won't have me rushing back any time soon."

    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I've eaten at Ruth's Chris in Baltimore and Annapolis, and both served better food. The filet was gristly around the edges and slightly tough, not at all like slicing through butter which the price suggests it should be like. The crab cake was full of filler, very disappointing. However, the side dishes and the service were both up to par. But I can only give it three stars because it's a steak house, and the steak was only so-so."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The meal was excellant. All four of us enjoy every aspect of our meal and desert. My in-laws were very impressed with their meal. The stek dishes are very tasty, cooked to order and no complaints. thank you for an enjoyable meal."

  • "My wife and I went to Ruth Chris to celebrate our 45th anniversary... Upon arrival and showing us to our table, the hostess decorated our table with ROSE PETALS, such a beautiful touch. During the meal, it seemed like every employee came to our table to congratulate us. The waiter was extreamly "fantastic".... A hardy thankyou to all to make this day even more special"

  • "This place is just not all what it's made out to be. Went there two have the porterhouse for two to find out they ran out. In my head that's unheard of. A steakhouse that ran out of steak. The waiter got my Order wrong which isn't that big of a deal but after him telling me he ran out of the steak I wanted, I was just a little upset. This place comes with an expensive price tag per plate and you'd think you'd be getting an entrée that was worth it but with the experience that I had it just really wasn't worth it at all."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Requested a corner table which we received, however, we were put in the banquet room complete with the folding door & no atmosphere. I might as well have been in the holiday inn. We could see the kitchen fr om our table, just not what I expected from a high end steak house. Food & service were very good, although I rarely see a tray put down for waiters to buss dirty dishes next to a table in "good" restaurants. Excellent filets on 500 degree plates, great salads, good cocktails & a good Cabernet by the glass. We did the classic meal which included salad, entree, side & dessert. A good value. Would I go back? If I can be assured I would be in the main dining room & not put in the Los luster banquet room, kind of ruined our romantic dinner."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Went here to celebrate Valentine's Day and propose to my girlfriend. Ordered flowers through Open Table (which were terrific). Ruth's Chris put the flowers, rose petals (they provided) and things I gave them on the table before we arrived. My girlfriend was blown away by the table setting and the attention paid to us -- see thought it was just a Valentine's Day event. After a very emotional proposal and acceptance, the restaurant served us a wonderful dinner and complimentary dessert and champagne. Everyone was incredibly nice and it was a wonderful evening. I wanted to propose at Ruth's Chris in Princeton because we had been here several times, always have a terrific meal, and love sitting in one of their booths -- very romantic."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "With over 600 reservations for Valentines day, they made each couple feel special including the presentation of a long stem rose to each lady at the end of the evening. Of course, you can always rely on their filet to be excellent."

  • "Restaurant Was Beautiful. Service Was Great. Ambience Was Amazing. Food Was A Bit Disappointing, Tasteless."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We have been here many times and normally a great experience but this time they really messed up - ordered a filet medium and it came out rare. Sent it back and the manager brought it back medium well (almost well done). I said that that wasn't what I ordered so he said he could get one back to me quickly that would be medium (as the other folks at the table were already half way through their meals). He came back quickly with another steak but it was completely rare inside. It was a debacle and I ended up just eating the leftovers of the other folks at my table rather than waiting another 15 minutes for a meal. Then they messed up the desserts too."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris never disappoints. The food is great and the service is extraordinary. The staff at the hostess desk is always accommodating our waiter Nino is the best. We tend to eat here every 4 - 6 weeks and are treated like very good friends. This is always an excellent night out."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Took my husband here for his birthday and we had one of the private booth seats. We loved it as we felt like we were in our own restaurant. Our servers took very good care of us. Very attentive. Our food was absolutely out of this world. You could cut the steak with a butterknife. The Tempura Onion Rings were very good as well. They were the size of doughnuts. The portions for the sides are very big. Good for sharing. We topped off the night with the creme brulee. Excellent. Again enough for two even three to share."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "My son picked Ruth Chris for his 16 th Birthday. The food was great he loves steak so it is always his first choice for Steak"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "We dined here many times and have always enjoyed the classic steak-house experience. For the first time, one of the meals was not pre-pared to the requested 'doneness'. Mistakes can happen - it is how you handle the situation that counts. The waiter and manager handled the situation expertly. We would definitely return."

  • "....Class A steak house. Everything was done right."

  • "Steak was excellent and so is the lamb chops. Lobster Mac n Cheese is an amazing side, asparagus cooked perfect. Only thing I was not impressed with was the creamed spinach."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "this is probably one of the most expensive restaurant in the area to but it's worth to visit it at least once .You will not be disappointed with the quality of cooking filet mignon on the bone ($58),incredible selection of wine,the level of service and romantic atmosphere of course !"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Food was great, the lamb chops and filet were cook to perfection and tasted great but the service was slow. There did not seem to be any continuity in our meal. It almost felt as if they were short staffed that night. The wine suggestion for the dinner item was also very good. Overall a nice place to have a special dinner but service was not up to par for the price you are paying for the meal."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Good food, good service. Made a reservation through open table the same day so we were seated in a side room, I wasn't happy about that. It was what I expected from a chain restaurant."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "My husband and I joined our brother-in-law and sister to celebrate 2 birthdays and an anniversary. From the moment we walked into Ruth's Chris we were made to feel special. Our server, Mauricio, was knowledgable and personable…not at all overbearing or invasive. We enjoyed the best steak any of us had eaten in years! The sides were out of this world, to include the Lobster Mac'n Cheese, which I would ordinarily never eat. The desserts to die for and wine that lived up to expectations without breaking the bank. Overall a wonderful dining experience for all 4 of us."

  • "As always, dinner at Ruth Chris was delicious and the Princeton location was perfect. Since moving to the neighborhood, my fiancé and I have gone to the Ruth Chris - Princeton location multiple times and every time has been superb. For appetizers, I ordered the lobster bisque (which was the best I ever had, completely finished the whole bowl which I've never done before), while my fiancé ordered a salad...we both ordered rib eyes and everything was delicious!"

  • "Been to Ruth's Chris several times & to this location 4 times. We went for New Year's Eve which is also our anniversary.The service & food is consitantly great! We skipped aps & had - of course steak (Filet & Shrimp and 16oz Ribeye) - sides - special Lobster Mac/Cheese & Mushrooms - Steaks perfect. Shrimp tasty & cooked right. Lobster Mac/Cheese was OK. The lobster meat was a little fishy, not sweet & I prefer a sharper cheese for mac & cheese. Mushrooms were wonderful. We ended w/ Cappicciono's & split creme brulee. Classic & awlays delicious. They put a candle in our dessert & wrote Happy Anniversary on the plate - a sweet touch. We got the booth we requested even though we called to say we were running late. Always accomodating."

  • "You could say we are regulars at Ruth's Chris. We love the restaurant. The restaurant was understandably busy with waiters and bus boys rushing around. My drink was not as cold as it should be because it was served in a warm glass. My steak was a little too well done. Waiter was in a bit of flap, but it was very good considering it was New Years Eve. Still our favorite place. Casual but routinely great food and service. Many service personnel and attention to detail. That's why we selected Ruth for the special evening."

  • "Went for New Years Eve. They handled all the extra pressures very well, being the place was packed. All the food was excellent and arrived with the proper spacing. Our only issue, which we were well aware of, was the cost factor. It is over priced. But other Thant that, everything was as you would expect and we had a wonderful time. We were seated very close to our reservation time and we're not rushed at all. This is not always the case on such a big night."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I've gone to this restauarnt a number of times and I feel the quality is not as good as it was in the past. I know it was New Year's Eve, but the food was alright. I think a number of other steakhouses impress me more."
