    We visited this restaurant each of the past three weeks. Food is superb but the service on all three occasions has been subpar compared to other restaurants in the area and other restaurants within the chain. Just way too slow.

    Upon arriving my experience was great as usual, however it took a few moments for the waitress to come over nevertheless, I told her that we have been here many times, and ordered the food instantly. I specifically asked her to put all the food in at the same time because due to my having small ones, I can't keep them calm but so long, and didn't want to disturb anyone. Well, humm I had to ask twice for my glass of wine, my soup never came, and it took 46 minutes for my steak to come out, and again they were very slow, but I know why it took so long because the waitress didn't put my entree order in until after the appetizer was brought out, which I told her not to do. So of course, by the time my food arrives, the kids had finished.

    This Ruth's Chris location was outstanding. I was extremely impressed with the service. Mandy was a fantastic waitress, as well as the many other people who checked in on us every time they passed by. All I put on our reservation was "1 year anniversary" and we were treated like royalty. Will definitely go back!

    Went for 18th wedding anniversary. Was taken back by rose petals on table when seated. The waiter ,John, was outstanding and very informative and helpful. The steak could have been cut with a fork. It was tender. My wife ordered Maryland Crab cakes and they were fabulous.( Very little if any fillers.) Basically all lump crab meat.

    Loved the food. Steak was one of the best ever but the prices will prohibit me from visiting more than once a year unless someone else is paying! In addition to the steak, I had a wedge salad, baked potato and two 12 year old Macallan's and my check, with tip, was $120.00! It was my fault for not looking at the drink menu to be forewarned they charged almost $20.00 per drink! The salad and potato were $9.25 each so I basically paid $60.00 for two drinks and two sides. Anyway, a great place to celebrate a special occasion but too expensive to be a regular stop!

    As always, the filet was wonderful. The scallops were a bit overcooked...so just okay. I expect more from Ruth's Chris. We'll be back for a special occasion, but because of the very expensive pricing, there is lots of competition. I do think the specials that include salad, a side and dessert is a pretty good deal.

    The quality of the food has really gone downhill. Used to be much better. Rely heavily on butter and oil to flavor food. Forgotten how to be creative, use seasonings and different cooking methods. Presentation/plating of main meal very disappointing. I asked for mushrooms without butter/oil- looked like they took some boiled ones that were prepped for stuffed mushrooms and put 'm in a bowl. Looked and tasted terrible. Same with asparagus. I've gotten better results at much cheaper establishments. They used to be sooo much better with special requests and that was an easy one. It wasn't even during peak busy time. Our server wasn't as good as the ones we have had in the past either. Just really downhill. Hopefully it is just this location.

    I had reservations for 8:45 pm but end up getting there around 8:20. I only had to wait for about 5 -8 minutes and I was seated at my table. The waiter was excellent and very attentive but not overbearing. He made excellent recommendations and the food was great. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back again.

    Anniversary dinner. Overall, staff was nice and they tried to please. Steaks had good flavor. Ribeye was overcooked. Sides were baked potato that tasted old. Asparagus was ok but nothing special..Sides cost way too much for flavor you get. Salads were okay. Overrated for price. Would not go again. Disappointed

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at Ruth Chris. Our car was taken for at the door by 2 very courteous valets. Once inside, we were seated right away at a table that was immaculate and separated from others enough for semi-privacy. Our steak was succulent and tender. The service was great.

    We had eaten at a Ruth Chris down in Orlando and decided to try the Raleigh location which was close to home. We were extremely pleased. We had an issue with our table - dark corner and it wobbled a lot. There were no tables available immediately so we chose to sit in the lounge and wait. The manager treated us to cocktails and an appetizer while we waited. When our table was ready, our waiter, Kyle, was fabulous. The food was prepared perfectly and all in all, it was an amazing night. We will definitely go back.

    Ruth Chris has been a favorite restaurant for us several years. The hot plates make the food so delicious. The servers there are very attentive. It is a wonderful place to go for a special occasion. The little extras of flower petals & chocolate writing on dessert plates add to a very nice dining experience.

    My husband and I wanted to go to Raleigh for some shopping, but we wanted to make our trip worth it coming from Fayetteville. We choose to eat early so we could enjoy our dinner and have time to drive back home, where it wouldn't be so late. The food was great. Our service didn't constantly check on us, but was available if needed. The manager made sure to check on us and we were able to discuss our entrees with him. The heat in my salmon brought tears to my eyes at first, but after a few bites I got used to it. The manager said he would talk to his staff, asked if I wanted something else, but really took the time to listen. I love heat in my food, so it was worth it. My husband's steak was great! He enjoyed every bite!

    We had a reservation (via OpenTable) and indicated a 40th anniversary celebration. Seated promptly. Server was excellent. She did not rush us, was happy to talk about the menu, corked our wine per our order / wishes, and was always pleasant. The food was absolutely outstanding. They use fresh ingredients and simple presentation but the flavors are profoundly delicious. We were not disappointed by any of our dishes. We all ordered from the classics menu and added a couple of sides for the table. Worked out quite well. The manager also checked our satisfaction with everything. It is such a classy operation from start to finish. Everyone from the hostess, to the manager, to the server acknowledged the 40th anniversary. Pricey but worth it!

    Have dined at many Ruch's Chris Steak Houses across the country. This one was just OK. The shrimp cocktail was a bit soggy, the caesar salad very dry and the New York Strip steak was also dry and definately not prime or choice. It was flavorless and contained a lot of gristle.. I doctored with a bit of salt, pepper and some butter, which made it somewhat edible, but @$45, one would have expected more. On the positive side, service was outstanding. Bartender makes a HUGE martini perfectly.

    I have missed Ruth's Chris. I started going to the Broad St. location in New Orleans back in the 80's. Ruth was a good friend. I had become less enthralled with all of the franchise stores, because they lacked the same generous spirit. Everything felt so controlled, from the portions to the people. This particular evening was like I remembered. I had no complaints at all. The service was excellent, the food perfect, and our celebration was exactly what we were hoping for. I hope I can count on a repeat every time!

    Everything was great from food to service. Our server was Kyle, and he was very knowledgable about the company and the food itself. This was our first time here because we had a gift card. The prices are much too expensive for us, so until we receive another gift card we won't be back, but if money wasn't an issue, we would come here weekly. My husband said the ribeye has forever ruined him, because he will never have another ribeye as good as the one he was served. Thank you very much for a once in a lifetime dining experience, perfect for our first date night In our new home. (just moved here from CA).

    HungryJack
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    I have eaten in several of Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in the past and have always gotten a tasty piece of meat. The meat served at the North Raleigh location lacked the flavor which I have come to expect. My 15 year old son and I both had the 11 oz. fillet and both were bland. In addition, the steaks were switched, he ordered medium well and I medium. Because he didn't say anything until half way through the meal, it was not worth mentioning to the waitress. We switched steaks after he mentioned it to me. This was his first time at Ruth's and I didn't want to spoil his experience. It was very unfortunate and disappointing, the taste and the mix-up.
