Diner Reviews
  • "Why cant this high end steak place cook a steak correctly? Ordered medium rare, got medium to medium well (very little pink). Didn't send back because then disrupts the meal for everyone else. The time before I received the wrong type of steak, when replaced it and it was served essential raw. Side dishes were great. Our server Kyle was excellent. Very professional and attentive as needed."

  • "We enjoyed our 34th wedding anniversary at Ruth's Chris. Love the venue at this restaurant , as it is an old plantation home. Our server was very attentive, and was able to answer any questions that we had. We were pleased with the menu options (some new ones since our last visit). The steaks were cooked to perfection, and arrived sizzling hot! The lobster mac and cheese is delicious. My husband loves the 1 lb. loaded baked potato (enough left over for breakfast potatoes the next day). The Caesar salad is superb (and I don't usually order it at restaurants), and enough for two to share. We loved the special touches for our anniversary (confetti on the table, and decorated dessert plate). Creme brulee is the way to end a special meal."

  • " This is a place for special occasions. It is pricey but well worth it. The food, ambiance and service are outstanding. We have tried other upscale restaurants in the area and Ruth's Chris is one that is worth the money spent."

  • "We ordered a big filet each; they were cooked perfectly, sizzling in butter. Wonderful Bearnaise and sides. Great cocktails before dinner and a great bottle of wine, and our server, Kathy was a dream with a beautiful Virginia accent. I now do a lot of business in Richmond and will be coming back often."

  • "We went to Ruth's Kris restaurant for our 39th wedding anniversary. We opted for private dining and were put into their "Anniversary" room which is intimate and set up for two. We love being away from the other guests in this little intimate room! The food and service was top notch and this really made our anniversary celebration wonderful."

  • "I chose Ruth's Chris Steak House for my husband's birthday dinner while we were staying in Glen Allen. The slightly longer drive was absolutely worth our experience!! Several other restaurants in the area seem to lack good service and personability; however, this is not the case with Ruth's Chris Steak House! From my first phone call to our step out the door everyone we were in contact with made our time wonderfully enjoyable and memorable! My husband is a history major and especially loved the plantation style building. The restaurant even catered to our infant & 6-year old, and didn't give us that regular "Ugh, you brought your kids," attitude that most fine restaunts portray. We will certainly revisit if back in the area again!"

  • "While we have dined here many times, this was our first dining experience on the patio. It helped that it was a perfect afternoon, but still, it was an outstanding experience. The service was attentive, without being pushy. The food was superb and, while we were nowhere near the piano, speakers brought the music outside to us. Yes, we'll do this again."

  • "Another fantastic meal at Ruth's. Always the spot I pick for my birthday dinner and now the outdoor bar area, with the happy hour specials make this restaurant a great casual destination. "

  • "Service was slow, but the most concerning thing was the waitress was very irritated when another server was just trying to help. I have been to RC many times and the servers have always helped each other out. This was a little uncomfortable when she asked what are you doing. Perhaps she is new give her a break! She was slow but the desert made up for it!"

  • "We usually choose Ruth's Chris for special celebrations. They allow you to enjoy great food at a casual pace. The lobster mac and cheese was new and I highly recommend it! Both tuna and steak are perfectly seasoned and cooked the way you like it. All the folks who work there are committed to you having a pleasant dining experience, which we did."

  • "As always the dining experience was fantastic. Ruth's Chris of Richmond has been for years, and is our favorite special occasion and many times, no special occasion restaurant. The atmosphere and food make it a very special social experience."

  • "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. "

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."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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..."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
