Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter called the manager over once thing got out of hand and manager did his best to correct everything but the experience was a disaster. 3 time to get a steak correct... Really? It seemed the kitchen didn't read the order because they were only 1 out of 4 for meals prepared correctly to the order. Only excuse was under staffed kitchen on a Saturday night. I will give them a second chance because I have had great food and service before."

  • "I frequent the high end steak houses such as Mortons, Gibsons, Sullivans etc. and this was quite a disappointing experience. Our waitress was not very friendly or helpful in regard to the menu, we didn't receive the correct food, the shrimp was overcooked, the service slow, and we were overcharged and had to bring it to the attention of the server. Makes me wonder how many other customers were overcharged because they were not paying attention."

  • "We had a good meal and our server was good but never really engaged with you as a customer. She was present but never really engaged"

  • "I celebrated my birthday at Ruth's Chris, so there were seven of us. As appetizers, we enjoyed platters of calamari, shrimp, and crab cakes. Delicious! Then we had either filet mignon or rib eye, with béarnaise, fries, mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach. Some of the meat was not prepared exactly as we ordered, but it was tasty nevertheless. We had vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for dessert. The service was very good. We would have preferred larger plates for the entrée and sides, to have meat and sides together."

  • "My husband and I dined here for our anniversary. We made reservations on OpenTable Ruth's Chris did everything possible to make us feel welcome. From small touches like putting our names congratulating us on our anniversary on the menu, providing us with a photograph of the night and seating us in a private booth. The food was excellent, the ambience was wonderful. We had a great time thanks Ruth's Chris!"

  • "My husband and I went here to celebrate 26 years of marriage. The food was excellent as well as the service. The special little touches they added to our dining experience, customized menus and photo at the end our our evening, made our anniversary that much more special. We will definitely return for our next special occasion."

  • "The restaurant was nice, but to dark. My steak was not cooked how I asked, but I did not want to send it back. because everything just seemed to take a long time and I wanted to eat with everyone else. The menu was a little hard to understand the waiter had to explain it to us. The best thing was the creme brulee, it was awesome. I think it was to expensive for me. I would not go there again."

  • "We were there last December, we thought the place was great then. As we were leaving we booked a Christmas Eve dinner for the family, but never made it. I was talking to the Manager, I told him everything was fantastic, including the server. I asked for a side I wish they had on the menu but, didn't was peas. His reply was you want peas, you got them. We never made it to Christmas Eve dinner, we were stuck out of town. We finally made it back there last Saturday evening, to my amazement, we had the same waiter. When he took my order, he said we also have your peas you requested last time. I was shocked, to my amazement, they actually made notes in the computer. I was very impressed. I will definitely be back there more often."

  • "I took my fiancee to a birthday dinner at the South Barrington Ruth Chris, I have been to many other locations all over the U.S. and was sorely disappointed in the service, our waiter Justin was miffed that we ordered a $60 bottle of wine instead of the $150 bottle he recommended, from then on the service went down hill. My fiancee did not even receive the gratis birthday desert from our waiter, after I paid the bill and complained to the manager he was fairly benign about the whole thing. Very disappointing I will not go back to this location again, many other must feel the same way as the place was not crowded on a Saturday night."

  • "We have come here several times for celebrating different occasions and have always had a great time. Food was good as always and service was great too. Had two small kids with us and the server was awesome with them. Everyone even the kids loved their food and was looking for more. My mother has never been and it very slow eater and was impressed that her food was hot the entire time. That is not normally the case when she eats out. I would recommend going this restaurant either going as big group or just the two of you. Great food, drinks and desserts."

  • "Went to Ruth's Chris for my daughter's 18th birthday. Chose this restaurant based on previous experiences at downtown and New Orleans locations. I was very disappointed. Service was horrible as waitress seemed untrained, nervous, and unattentive. Could not understand her premeal speech , and she never checked on our level of satisfaction with the food served. The steaks were just average quality, but the prices were extreme. The side dishes were too highly priced ($10.00 apiece) for what you received, as the serving size was very small compared to other local steakhouses. Was not large enough for sharing as advertised. Very unhappy and expensive experience, and would probably choose another restaurant for future celebration dinners."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We go to Ruth's Chris for birthdays and anniversaries and are always pleased. They make a great effort to recognize your celebration without going over the top with it. We have never had anything but great food and their servers are wonderful."

  • "We decided to go to Ruth Chris Steak House to celebrate a family member's birthday. We had been to a Ruth Chris Steak House, only once before - while on vacation in Washington, D.C. We found the restaurant in South Barrington and excellent find - the food was great, the menu very extensive, and excellent service. The only negative is that all items are Ala Carte and are quite expensive. "

  • "We have been to numerous Ruth's Chris restaurants all over the country including this, our second visit to this one. The waiter as usual was pleasant, informative and helpful. We were a little disappointed in the food this time. The Filets were cooked and seared perfectly but the quality and size of the steaks were lacking as far as all previous experiences and judging by Ruths Chris standards we have experienced in the past. These were not their typical thick, round cuts of filet that we expected and became used to. The side of my favorite Au Grautin were also disappointing. The potatos were very hard and undercooked and just a thin layer of cheese added to the top. Still love Ruth's Chris overall but disappointed on this trip. "

  • "Ruth's Chris staff treats customers as their number 1 priority. Each table has multiple staff assigned, so you won't have to hunt for your server to make an adjustment to your order, or request more wine. Their food is always top-notch, and the environment is warm and inviting."

  • "I have been to several Ruth Chris's Steak houses all over the USA. They are the most consistent in quality and taste which most of the competitors cannot match."

  • "Part of a considering a good dining experience is the service. Our waiter, Justin, was fantastic! He was sociable and knew the menu very well and steered us to making some good choices. He checked on us to make sure all was well and we couldn't have asked for better service. The porterhouse for 2 was excellent - luckily my husband and I like our meat cooked to the same temperature, the lobster mac & cheese was creamy delicious. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and Justin made us feel really special. There was a private party going on which was very loud but that didn't bother us. Otherwise it would have been very quiet."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Always a special occasion when we go to Ruth's Chris. Lobster Mac & cheese was served Luke warm, loaded baked potato was hardly loaded, just a sprinkle of bacon and a blob of sour cream asked for ice for my drink, never came ! Just not the type if service we've had in the past at a Ruth's Chris restaurant "

  • "We went on Mother's Day for lunch. Getting a reservation on the time we wanted was easy. We were seated as soon as we got in; there was a good crowd but not packed. Food was great as always, specially the steaks, although it took longer than I expected considering it was not particularly busy. Service was OK, but I've seen better from similarly rated steakhouses. Good wine list. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Mom was definitely pleased with her Mother's Day celebration. The classic filet and lobster were loved by each of us with splendid sides of garlic mashed potatoes, garlic green beans, and sauteed mushrooms, along with the Pinor Noir was perfecto! This was all topped off with a unbelievable strawberry cheese cake and bread pudding. Our wait staff led by Tim was outstanding!"

  • "We had another amazing dinner on Saturday and I'm continually impressed that Ruth's Chris continues to serve at such a high level. On business, we've had the chance to eat at other downtown steak restaurants, and Ruth's Chris continues to stand out. Service was attentive and experienced, the ahi tuna appetizer was the really the best ever (I have some picky eaters who are fussy about tuna), and the steaks were top quality and perfectly prepared. Normally, I'd expect to not like a chain like this, but I find it shocking and pleasantly surprising that such a great experience would be present in the suburbs and easily accessible. "
