Diner Reviews
  • "Absolutely outstanding - food, service, everything. I have eaten in fine restaurants all over the country and this is top shelf."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food outshined the few issues we had with our visit. Steaks were ordered at different temps by all of four us and each one came out perfectly. However, we felt squished with the amount of table space. Barely enough space with salads and bread and when our food arrived early; no where to place these wonderful steaks especially with the searing hot temp of the plates. Hostess was clueless in trying to find our reservation when two of the four had already checked in. It took her another ten minutes to realize that she had already seated them. "

  • "This restaurant is great for any occasion. If you want a great night out with friends and family, or just the right place to go with your special person, you will find a great experience."

  • "We always go to this restaurant when we are in town and the food and service is always excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Return Ruth's Restaurant......We have always come here for many special occasions and one big special occasion was our wedding reception in July 2009. Whenever we bring friends here they are impressed with the food, service and ambiance .... Hopefully we will have many other occasions to celebrate."

  • "We had a gift card and hadn't decided to trek down to midlothian to try the local Ruth's Chris, but it was a beautiful historic Plantation Home converted to a restaurant, so it had the dependability of grest food, service, etc. you get from a Ruth's Chris without any of the thought of this being a restaurant you could experience otherwise. We were genuinely surprised at what a great choice it was! Service and food was excellent- its a dining experience where you truly come to simply enjoy every part of your meal."

  • "My wife and I had a function to attend in Richmond, which happened to fall on the date of our second anniversary. I had heard about Ruth's Chris Steak House but had never been to one. So I checked to see if there was one in the Richmond area and found that it was just a few minutes from our hotel. Accordingly, I made reservations. Cindy had the barbecued shrimp, and I had the ahi tuna stack. Both were terrific. Having been told about the bread pudding, we ordered that for dessert. As an added touch, they wrote "Happy Anniversary" on our plate in chocolate. We were both glad we went there."

  • "Nice place. Loved the piano player...good guy. Ordered the Petite. It took 4 days to eat it. Sliced it and made struggle sandwiches for a couple of days. Dropped $200 . I was not pleased nor were my stomach or wallet. Should have went to Family Secrets."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I used to enjoy going there. Recently went for a birthday dinner with my girlfriend. The waitress was inattentive and distracted, took our shrimp sauce away even though we asked to keep it, and would not check on our table for a long time. I had to wait and wait for another tea refill which never came (the restaurant, btw, was not busy, so no excuse). The food itself was mediocre, the quality of steaks has gone way downhill in particular. Otherwise the atmosphere was pleasant as always and the other staff was courteous and well trained."

  • "Born and raised in Richmond, Va. we are truly lucky to have Ruth's Chris in our city. It is our go to resturaunt when we have out of town company or need a special place to dine for those special occasions."

  • "We've been to this Ruth's Chris many times and have yet to be let down. This time, we had a weekend without the kids and my wife had a gift card she had earned through her employer. Other than having to wait about 10 minutes to be seated (when we had reservations), i have absolutely not critiques. Food was fantastic, wait staff was excellent and ambiance is wonderful here. We will be back."

  • "Wonderful venue! Excellent food and professional service. Quite expensive but worth it."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris is known for their steaks. When I can grill a better steak at home with inferior equipment, there's a problem. The cost is too great for fair food."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Never have a complaint dining here. Food and service always great."
    Dined on 6/25/2013
  • "Server and kitchen worked hard to accommodated food allergies."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "There was not a single aspect of my dining experience that needed to be improved upon. The cheese stuffed chicken was the best I've ever tasted, the cheesecake was decadent, and the coffee was so fresh the oils could be noticed around the rim. The lighting was dim, the pianist well versed in his art, and the tables laiden with rose pedals...the perfect setting for a romantic evening with the one you love. I will certainly be back again."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "First time at Ruth's Chris. Not sure why we hadn't gone before. Absolutely loved our experience. James (our waiter) was very knowledgable, friendly and attentive. The food was awesome. I don't have any complaints at all. We loved it so much, we booked a reservation for May 10 (day before Mother's Day)."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "You could tell they were having a busy night as we entered...the comings and goings kept the front door flapping like a playing card in the spokes of a bicycle. Most we're two-tops, so the turnover was quick. That said...we were never rushed. As a matter of fact, our "regular" table was unavailable as the previous diners were taking...their...time. We were offered another table, near the piano, if we chose to eat closer to our reservation. Suffice to say, quality of the meal is always high...and folks go out of their way to make you feel you were the guest they had been waiting for all evening. Yes, this place has become our "Cheers" and I think we're okay with that..."

  • "My husband and I drive an hour away to spend all our special occasions at Ruth's Chris."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "This restaurant is 2nd to None when measured in several categories. First, you will not find more Reproducible, High Quality food---EVERY TIME---at any other fine dining restaurant. Second, the staff at this Ruth's Chris is simply outstanding. Third, the treatment of any and all customers is First Class. Finally, we have traveled to many similar Ruth's Chris----and while all are high quality places, this place is a cut above all others. One might say that this is the standard by which all Restaurants should be judged. Bravo to the Management!"

  • "I'm not a steak lover and they had so many other options that were SO GOOD!! Will definitely dine here again"
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Went here to celebrate two birthdays, took a little over 30 minutes to be seated even with a reservation, but the service and food was great. Definitely would recommend the surf and turf with lobster mac and cheese and ending with the creme brûlée! Location is in a nice, historic building. Bar is very small, but had construction walls up so it looks as if they are adding on to the building."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Lots of cold and some snow here this week, so decided to enjoy a great meal at one of our favorite restaurants. It was nice and warm inside, with a pleasant view, and the wonderful food and service. The meal and experience lived up to our expectations. "A most civilized evening.""
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "Everything about this restaurant is just wonderful!!"
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "More crowded than in past years, but we arrived and were seated immediately. The waiter asked us if we were familiar with Ruths' Chris and we said yes, but later he proceeded to tell us about the hot plates and their beef specialty, etc., so obviously he wasn't paying attention to the responses to questions we asked. He also had to be reminded to refill wine glass. The service was otherwise very good. The chocolate lava dessert was mediocre for the price."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Went there for New Years Eve. So did a lot of others. Food was excellent, sides were great and enough for two, service was great even with large crowds. The noise level was definitely energetic, but based on past visits I am sure this was because it was New Years Eve. The menu was pricey, but the food was excellent and the quantity more then enough."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We attend every New Years Eve. It was a tradition that my Dad loved, he has since passed away. We have continued this tradition and love the evening. It's special. We had a wonderful server, Brigitta. She was OUTSTANDING!!!!! Thank you for the great experience."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Very good food and service. Music was a little too loud. Server was excellent but go little support from water person. Still a nice place for a special occasion."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "The food is always top quality and expertly prepared. The atmosphere is conducive to conversation. Service is excellent, especially Brigitta. The best thing about Ruth's is you know what to expect and that those expectations will be met time and time again."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "While we don't get to this restaurant often, we always enjoy the experience. This visit was again very enjoyable. We were greeted and seated promptly even though the dining room was busy. Aubrey, our server, provided menu advice and information along with interesting conversation and a good sense of humor. Retiring to the bar afterward, David, the bartender, serves up fine cocktails and after dinner drinks with attentive professionalism."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "This was my first visit to Ruth Chris for lunch. The food was excellent, the service great and the atmosphere very nice. Word of caution, this is not an inexpensive place to eat, so be informed."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "We had a lovely evening with excellent service and food. We were a little disappointed that we had to wait over an hour for a table of the type we had requested. However, we were very impressed with the personnel at the front desk who could not have been nicer and more attentive in the face of a situation that was out of their control (people sitting at tables long after they had finished their meals). A very special thank you should go to the manager and the nice lady at the front desk! More restaurants should be so lucky as to have that kind of personnel."

  • "The hamburger was the best EVER!! The ambience is great and the wait staff is exceptional!! Just wish they would at least have one or two days of lunch throughout the year instead of just December! Loved it!!"
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "Excellent lunch! Would love to be able to go year-round! Hamburger was excellent and the lava cake was massive!!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "I love Ruth's Chris in general and the Richmond location especially. Service in the bar is outstanding but it's not up to snuff in the dining room. The food and drink are always great. Could use a few more professional waiters/waitresses to improve the dining experience."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "A birthday gathering. It needed to be a special evening, and it was. A request for a certain table, check. Being seated at that table within minutes of our reservation time, check. Prompt, pleasant service which met our every need, check. A surf and turf special chosen by three out of four of us at the table, outstanding, check. A "steakhouse" that continues to excel in the preparation of lobster, check. Wines selected by the Wine Capt., perfect choices, check."

  • "The wife and I just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary , we wanted somewhere with plenty of atmosphere good food and drink ,so I booked a table at Ruth Chris , We had a great time , with Live piano music , great waiter service , and good food . So all in all we had a good time. On the down side although the food was good , For the price you pay and for what you get was really disappointing . We both had the lobster bisque soup wife had the petite filet I had the regular filet steak it comes with one side order , it was kind of funny really when the meal arrived it looked all alone on this big plate , anyway it cost us around $120 . Its nice to spoil your selves once in awhile but next time we'll probably eat at the Tobacco company"

  • "We love Ruth's Chris, but during our last visit, the NY Strip steak I ordered had an excessive amount of fat. I was very surprised that this could happen at Ruth's Chris. Our server apologized and a manager come by and credited our bill for the cost of one of our drinks."
