  • "Steaks are excellent. Servers are very professional and friendly. The atmosphere was very comfortable. Even the side dishes were prepared with a high level of "taste enjoyment" involved."

  • "I love this restaurant and I go there if I want a great steak. The wife had a great meal but my steak was over salted."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Food and Service was excellent as usual. Never been disappointed with Ruth's Chris Steak House!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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 "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "Good wine list but pricing. Our steaks were excellent, cooked to our order and the sides were a perfect size for 2. Service was good and attentive."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Mother's Day special of Lobster and Filet was great. Salad was awesome. Asked for field greens which replaced iceberg lettuce."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "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!"

  • "This restaurant has the best steaks. Did not like the fact that they charge six dollars for a bottle water. Other than that the food was awesome"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I've always heard Ruth's Chris was truly an exceptional steak house and, while it is very good, I did not find the quality of the steak that I had to be so much better than others I've had elsewhere... and for less money. I purchased a Cowboy Ribeye steak at $56 plus a $4 blue cheese crust. For $60, I received a nice steak. I expected it to be an absolutely tender, flavorful steak and it was not. It was good but wasn't worth the $60 price tag. I've made better steaks at home. All the side dishes, the ambiance, wine, and service that went along with it were excellent. I just expected more from the high priced steak from the "steak house"."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We really enjoy going to Ruth's Chris.....especially for special occasions. It has now become a tradition for my husband's birthday, and he loves their steaks. They also do a really nice job celebrating any special occasion."

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday on 4/21 and couldn't have been more pleased. Both my wife and I ordered from the classics and our respective choices were excellent. What really made the evening was an outstanding server. Our server was attentive without hovering and he certainly knew his way around the menu and wine list. We were also pleased with the set up of the restaurant and our booth was almost like an alcove in that it wasn't out in the middle of the floor. Not our first time at Ruth's Chris but our first time at this location. We will return. "

  • "Dinner reservations on Friday 4/18 for 5 people. We indicated at the front desk we were celebrating a birthday. The server and restaurant did nothing for a birthday. The entire part ordered filet's. All were different sizes, 2 of the 5 had more than normal grisle/fat. Overall experience was very average at best. Better steaks elsewhere, certainly for less price. Mark Nelson"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "As always, the food was excellent. But the service was not up to par of the other Ruth's Chris locations I have visited. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table, even with reservations, and then the dining room was only 2/3 full. If they are not fully staffed on a Saturday evening, when will they ever be fully staffed? Then we had a couple incidents with the service once we did get seated. They were relatively minor issues, but for Ruth's Chris I expect impeccable service. I have always had this in the past at other locations, but that was not the case this time around. With so many good choices in the area, I will think twice before heading here again."

  • "Service and ambiance were as good as anyone could possibly expect. My wife and I went there for our anniversary. I had the large porterhouse and it was just ok. It was actually disappointing for the price. I've had much better tasting steaks at a variety of Chicago steak houses. I wouldn't have the steak there again but I absolutely love the place. They paid great attention to detail and the server and entire service team were wonderful. Unfortunately, the main reason we went there was for a great steak. Irrespective of what you order you will enjoy your overall experience."

    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Although the food was generally very good (i.e. good steak, potato au gratin, and chocolate cake dessert), but the spicy lobster appetizer was a miss for me. It just tasted like deep fried spicy batter. The service was also very good."

  • "Service was great, wine was fine. Food was way overpriced so go there prepared to pay!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Not our first visit to one of Ruth's Chris Steak House's so we were expected the same level of service as we've experienced at other locations (San Dieogo was perfection!). Unfortunately our evening was tarnished by very slow service that was mind boggling. It took 20 min. for water served and orders, another 20 for salad/bread to be served, and a 45 min. wait before our main entrees. What could have easily been a wonderful night of dinning turned very frustrating given the level of expectations set forth by Ruth's Chris. I asked repeatedly if there was an issue in the kitchen and although apologetic was given no explanation. To finish the host only provided our last glasses of whine on the house which seemed less than sufficient."

  • "Went there for my wife's birthday with my son and his fiancee. As usual the staff and servers were friendly, prompt and attentive. My wife is gluten free and they had a menu for gluten free and was able to modify a standard entree to be gluten free to accommodate her food concern. The only glitch was my rib eye being slightly overcooked, but they took care of it immediately and prepared another one immediately without any trouble. I really appreciated that. Will definitely return."

  • "The Steaks tasted excellent, but one was cooked incorrectly and was sent back, and one was the wrong size ordered, but they didn't do anything about that."
