    Always tasty!! Excellent steak, phenomenal sides. Happy there was a kids menu - don't remember seeing it advertised at all iron the website. (Kids chicken breast was not spectacular though - my boy said he will pick steak if we take him back and he learned a lesson in ordering from a restaurants specialties.) Everything else was great!!

    My steak was simply one of the best I have ever eaten. My mashed potatoes and creamed spinach was just OK. The service was very good. The table that I had was a half booth and half chair table. The booth part was broken and terribly uncomfortable.

    Ruth Chris is a steak house, first and foremost, and they do it well. We've always been impressed with the tenderness of the meats and the preciseness of the cooking. Their menu of sides is moderate, but every item we've tasted was delightful, be sure to try the spinach au-gratin and the bbq shrimp. The service has always been quick, friendly, and efficient, with accommodating wait staff quickly working to make the visit the best they can.

    Been to this location many times and this time found service a little slow. We sat ahead of another table of 2 and they ended up getting their food 15 minutes before we did. Also steak wasn't up to their usual standards... Cost cutting?? It wasn't bad but wasn't the great food I know from past.

    My son and I had a very nice dinner at this hotel. I felt that the price was not too high for the amount of high quality food we received. The atmosphere was quiet and pleasant and conducive to talking and catching up. The steak was excellent and so were the bread and dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to adults without children.

    We love to frequent Ruth's Chris when we're in the city. Also, we bring out-of-town visitors to eat at Ruth's Chris as a special treat. The food is always excellent as well as the service. This particular visit was surprisingly different only because of the seating arrangement given to my friend and me. We were given a table right against a wall the had a table just about 5 feet above it. We were fine until someone was seated at that table. It was very odd eating our meal at someone's feet. It felt dirty so we asked to move. Our waiter moved us right away to a table nearby which was also right against a wall with a table above it. However, the table above us this time was slightly away from the edge so it didn't seem quite as bad.

    I contacted the restaurant prior to going and informed them it was my girlfriend's birthday. Upon being seated, there was a birthday card from Ruth's Chris and birthday confetti on the table. Nicely done! We both ordered fillets and I also ordered lobster! Everything was cooked to perfection. We loved everything but the asparagus was amazing!

    Not only was this restaurant noisy, almost everything we ordered was drenched in butter. I ordered a cabernet that I normally drink (usually paying approx. $17/bottle) and paid $15 per glass! The markup is unbelieveable and the wine was not even that good. I asked for something different and was "sold up" to another glass (at $25.00/glass.. yes, you read that correctly, for a simple cab/sav..) The only thing that we enjoyed was the table setting, as the staff did make an effort to recognize it was our anniversary.

    If you're in the mood for for a nicer than average dinner then go to this Ruth Chris or any other locations of this chain. The ambiance was nice and the food delicious, but I was very disappointed that the $12 drink I ordered only filled half the martini glass.

    The ambiance was very nice. The service was great and always refilling out waters and even brought us an extra bread. We ordered the porterhouse for two and the server sliced it up and served the meat on our plate which was nice. This place is pretty expensive less that Morton's, so I'd probably only go here for a special occasion.

    We went to Ruth's to celebrate Valentines day. I made reservations a few weeks in advance and once we arrived we were greeted promptly and told our table would be ready shortly. The hostess was very polite and took us to our table. The gentlemen who served us was not only very professional he was also very friendly and because we aren't too familiar with the restaurant he gave us the rundown. Great service! Great food!

    The first time we ever went it was amazing. I no sooner than took a sip of ice tea than my glass was filled. They swept the crumbs from the table during the meal and after. We didn't have to ever look for our waiter. He even has his own business card. It was amazing. Since then it has been inconsistent. We have been about five more times. Only once was no good. That time the food was just okay, the service terrible. The other few times it was anywhere from good to okay. We are a bit frustrated with our last two times. We went on Christmas and got seated downstairs which kind of felt like we were at the kids table. The last time was on Valentines Day and we got a tiny table right behind the hostess stand and slow service.

When our selection was not available, offered another at the same price. Meal was hot and delicious. Would definitely go back.

    This is my second time coming here for valentines dinner, the dinner was great food tasted great! Only one hicup, had to send the wife's steak back for a quick redo, came out a little red. Other then that our server john was excellent, he was able to choose a great red wine to pair with the steak. To finish the dinner the desert was awesome! Wife had the chocolate explosion which was excellent.

    Food & beverages were very good. Waiter service poor on a night to attend a performance at the Paramount on a Friday. Waited 20-30 minutes between appetizer & entree, thus leaving us to dine hastily & dash. Couldn't have been the kitchen as other diners nearby seated at same time received their food timely. To be fair, we did instruct the waiter when first seated at 4:45 we were attending a performance starting at 7.

    Every birthday I try to think of a new steak place to try out. This birthday I wanted to try two other places before Ruth Chris and they were closed for the Super Bowl. I was happy to be able to count on Ruth Chris as they were open and made me remember that I get good food, good service and I they help me celebrate my birthday. Why do I bother to go somewhere else?

    Everyone knows that Ruth's Chris does dinner but did you know they have a breakfast menu. Thanks to Open Table we found that they do serve breakfast and do it very well. It was a fabulous way to celebrate my friends birthday prior to going to Seahawks/Saints game. Eggs were delicious, filet was amazing and service outstanding. We already plan on coming back. Thank you Ruth's Chris and Open Table what a way to start the day! P.S. GO HAWKS!

We were one of only 2 tables in the restaurant so the service was good, though the waiter was very sloppy looking, as if he just rolled out of bed. Very disappointing.

    My other half and I love eating here. We're in our 20 ' s and this place fits any age as long as you enjoy outstanding food. The steaks a always delicious and you could never ask for anything better. A good value and will always be our spot. The service could of been better , but I believe the waiter we had this time around was fairly new. As you could tell he was pretty nervous and kept apologizing for messing up during his explanations of the specials. But, no worries he still did an outstanding job checking up but not to much of course so we could enjoy. I love this place.
