Diner Reviews
  • "Nice wine list. Apps were delicious. Porterhouse for two and potatos au gratin were a bit of a let-down, just not up to standards. We've had a better dining experience at the Ruth's Chris in Atlantic City, NJ than in Princeton."

  • "Always a pleasure coming to Ruth's Chris Princeton. Nino, our waiter, treats us like family, makes sure everything is perfect and always recommends the best wine and food."

  • "Fantastic anniversary dinner at this restaurant. Food was exceptional as was the service provided by Pradeep. He was warm, sincere and welcoming; going above and beyond to ensure a beautiful evening and memory. The management's added touches of providing us the most romantic table as well as a complimentary anniversary photo and dessert were a thoughtful plus."

  • "This was my first visit to Ruth's Chris and I really enjoyed my meal of steak and shrimp. My only complaint was that the food took way too long to arrive. Luckily, I was traveling on business and didn't have any time constraints that evening. Otherwise, it was a good experience."

  • "Always guaranteed a consistent high quality meal and experience ! Only downside is that it has gotten increasingly pricey ."

  • "In a Country where Steak/Grill restaurants are plentiful this in my opinion is First Class, & in a different class. The greeting is calm but professional; the tables are well positioned; the menu always interesting & the food great. Best of all is the Service; on both visits our Waiter was on top of everything without being intrusive. My Daughter's Birthday was topped with a beautifully prepared dessert with candle & Birthday wishes. Excellent value for that Special Occasion."

  • "The food and service were much better than last time - they got the steaks right (last time they were way off on the correct temperature) so it was a really good dining experience. Only negative was when it came time to leave - our waiter and his assistant disappeared for about 15 minutes and we had to gt the manager to get the check."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We had a great time at Princeton's Ruth Chris , food was fresh and served perfectly. Our waiter Pradeed was both attentive and knew how all food items were prepared. Too bad we live so far away."

  • "I've been to this Ruth's Chris on several occasion, the last before now about a year ago. It had always been good but has seemed to decline both in food and service. We were four in our party and we each ordered steak and sides. Two of the four were underdone (medium rare instead of medium well) and had to be sent back, which always messes the rhythm of the meal with two people half done before the others start. The sides were MUCH smaller than ever and hardly "family style" for sharing. At $400 for 4 steaks, 3 small sides two Mojioto's, and an iced tea, this wasn't a good value. Our waiter Rob was nice but seemed very new. I have to think very hard before I go back. I get a much better meal and service at Capital Grille."

  • "My filet was overcooked. They accommodated us by taking the item off our bill."

  • "As expected we all had a terrific time, good and service were impeccable."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I have an issue with the quality of the steak as well as the size of the steak. If I'm paying $20 for a ribeye I would expect the steak might have some large chunks of grizzle and I would expect the cook to wing it on cutting the steaks to size however if I'm paying $60 I expect the meat to be trimmed perfectly, prepaired perfectly and actually be 22 ounces. And there is no reason for a filet to be dry at med rare. I'm not the kind of person to make a stink so I didn't say anything. I do enjoy Atlantic city location and I recommend princeton takes some lessons from the Atlantic city location. This is my 3 rd visit and every time unsatisfied. I will no longer be going to Princeton Ruth Chris. I feel I wasted my money."

  • "We ate there because it was convenient and close to the hotel. the staff was awesome and accomodating for our 2-year old."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The food was great, the service was great. Waiter was attentive - knew the name of our party before he approached the table. Very helpful with selections. First Class all the way. Expensive - about $300 for family of four, a couple of drinks, including tips. Great for a special occasion"

  • "We live in Richmond so the Jeresy location was an experience for us. The service and food were excellent. The interior was a little tired and seems to be in need of a refresh or light renovation. The decor seemed tired. It would have also been nice if the other diners weren't all in jeans and t shirts. We were shocked by the casual attire of the other guests. The employees seemed very pleasant and very proactive with all of the guests. You can tell there are great people that care working there. "

  • "The server and his assistant were very attentive. We changed our table to a booth and it was no problem! The drinks were excellent. The Dirty Goose Martini was awesome. Wines were great! The Crabtini appy was delicious! The Porterhouse for Two was done to perfection. We added a couple of 5 oz. Lobster Tails for an extra punch! All good!!! For sides, we had the Lobster Mac and Cheese which was excellent, and as we always do at steakhouses, we had the Creamed Spinach... Not great... It was a little plain and a tad too watery... Don't get me wrong, we finished the spinach, and it was certainly good. Topped it all off with the Bread Pudding and Apple Crisp desserts, and they were amazing! I definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "The food and service are always outstanding here. Unfortunately, this time there was a gentleman sitting by us dressed like a slob with flip - flops on that he took off and was eating barefoot. How about a tiny little bit of dress requirement on a Saturday night. We were told it was a corporately owned Ruths Chris and they were told not to say anything about dress code issues. Come on.....really."

  • "The food is Good ,though they should tone down the use of Butter. Though the cost is high, they do not rank with the Best Steak Houses"

  • "Had a wonderful dining experience at Ruth Chris the other night. The food was great and the service was top notch."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Although pricier than some steak houses there is a reason for it. I go for the filet which comes on a hot plate with the sound of sizzling herb butter as it comes from the kitchen. My favorite filet thus far! I was pleasantly surprised to see there was a pre fix menu available with a dessert substitution for just $4 more. It's been a number since my last visit when I had the filet and at a different location and years later it was just as a remembered. Can't wait to go back and treat my husband for Father's Day."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Dinner for 4 was great, everyone enjoyed their meal a lot. Our server, however, was bad. Surprising because they pride themselves on service. Our server forgot our appetizer, then forgot it again after we told him and he had it served with our dinner. After our dinner was over we waited at least 15 min before we got our check or were asked if we wanted dessert and that was only after we told the bus person to tell out waiter we wanted out check. I will go back, but I will make sure Ed is not our server."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday and went to Ruth's at the request of the birthday boy. He was pleased particularly with the birthday candle in his raspberry sorbet. The food and service was predictably good. I find the wine list very pricey but the selection decent for domestic wines."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I Like Ruth Chris but the menu is getting old and the quality of the meat is going down. RC's needs dining specials. "

  • "Tables are too high in the booths. Or the seats are too low. We felt like we needed booster seats. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Shrimp cocktail was fresh, and lobster appetizer was delicious."

  • "Classic steakhouse experience. Tender barbecue shrimp, medium rare filets, giant onion rings. Not fancy, just delicious."

  • "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 3/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "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."
