Ruth's Chris Steak House - South Barrington
FABULOUSRuth's Chris is EXCELLENT. We took Dad there for Father's Day and he loved it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRC Dinner for 4Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves. The food was excellent. You have an entree and anything you want with that entree is an extra cost ie. potatoes, vegetables , salad. etc. With drinks and appetizers and dessert you are at about $125-150 a person. Great service, great restaurant just be aware of the expense,.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but goodThe prices are high but I have never had a better steak. My husband and I split the porterhouse for two and had leftovers. We would definitely go back for a special occasion. The prices are too high to make this a "regular" restaurant.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is consistently stellarGreat food in not-too-overwhelming proportions. Beautiful setting too. I do wish the lighting were turned up a notch or two. I am NOT an elderly diner, but the menu is difficult to read in the dim light.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful NightWithout a doubt the best dining experience we've had in a very long time. Pricey yes, but worth every penny.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit, different ambianceThis particular location is divided up into 2 sections. Our first visit, my wife and I really enjoyed the ambiance (plus food/service), but this second time, I felt like I was sitting in a banquet hall. Though the food was still good and the service was as well, I was underwhelmed by the private section of the restaurant. Other than that, no issues with our experience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Ruth's Chris There IsWe dine at Ruth's Chris Restaurants often and enjoy it every time but this one is the best! We always get the stuffed chicken breast and this one kicks it up a knotch on the cheese, it oozes from the chicken when you cut into it. It's phenomenal. Granted, the steaks are always great too, but if you haven't tried the chicken yet give it a shot! The chopped salad is the best I've ever had as well, don't pass it up.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks in the Chicagoland areaOf all the steak places we have gone in Chicago and the suburbs, this is by far the best! Our
food was seared and broiled to perfection. The appetizers and sides were also great and our server was very friendly. The only "complaint" was that the dessert menu didn't have much of a selection. Overall, best steaks we've had in the area!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect BalanceRuth's Chris provided a quiet setting for a romantic dinner. The dining room is beautiful with private booths conducive to conversation. The service was impeccable. Our steaks were very good but heavily seasoned with salt and pepper. My lobster was overcooked. The spinach au gratin was delicious and the specialty drinks were spot on.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation dinnerWe love Ruth's Chris for their delicious menu and superb service. We have dined here many times and have yet to be disappointed! We appreciate the attention given even to our youngest diners, treated as young ladies and gentleman and not just overlooked as some restaurants tend to do. Thank you for making our special occasion truly special!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite places!One of our favorite places! Everything is better with butter, especially filet and spinach!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the bestWe eat at Ruth Chris often and I feel it is simply the best restaurant in the northwest suburbs...food is always hot or cold in salads and wonderful..we always sit in jovandi's section...again I feel he is the best server ever...They have floor to ceiling booths all around the permiter which are sooooo private ,no one can hear your conversations and you cannot hear other conversations ..
Doesn't get much better...5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the same - - GREAT!Dinner for two to celebrate a birthday. Both enjoyed the Price Fix steak, lobster, shrimp and scallop special.
WE can always depend on Ruth's Chris for an excellent meal and top service.
Surprised us with a very special desert plate, too.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThose in our party that hadThose in our party that had steaks really seemed to enjoy them. I had the crab cakes and I was disappointed in them- they tasted very fishy. The menu could use a few more fish offerings for those that don't eat red meat.
The salads that we tried and the tuna appetiizer were very good. Service was very friendly.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter we had was excellentThe waiter we had was excellent he was very friendly and enjoyable. We had filets and surf and turf and it was out of this world very delicious and food was hot and we would recommend ruth Chris to all of our friends and family. Opentable was very helpful in getting us a table at the last minute.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent quality steak &serviceIt was our anniversary dinner, so we roughly set $100 per person budget for this dinner. With drink and desert, the final bill was just as we planned. Despite of short notice, they made a special personalized menu for our table. Everyone serving at our table seemed to know that it was our anniversary. I'm very impressed. The steak cooked perfectly. Really really good. Side dishes are good, but not that wonderful. The bar serves very good drinks here. I ordered a cocktail, which was very tasty and pretty.My husband ordered a glass of wheat beer, whixh was in perfect temp and form & liquid balance. This seems to be easy, but not many places give us this level of satisfaction.
I'll deffinitely come back for another special dinner occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, and the serviceFantastic food, and the service can't be beat! Excellent dinner!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe greek salad was freshThe greek salad was fresh and tasty. The steak was cooked perfectly and cut like butter. I had the green bean casserole which was good but it should have been called mushroom casserole. I am not an mushroom lover so it was a little disappointing to find more mushrooms than green beans. Raspberry sorbet was fantastic!
I went with 4 others and we all were all very pleased with our meals.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service and foodOur server was knowledgable and very helpful in making our dinner selections, when our meals arrived they were perfection!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food, but a bit pricey.Love the food, but a bit pricey. $10 for a baked potato???4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMService was amazing; StaceyService was amazing; Stacey gets a gold star for making our evening lots of fun.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here for my birthdayI went here for my birthday and everything was fantastic!!

They pride themselves in getting orders right and prefer you tell them if they did get it wrong so they can remedy it quickly! Special Occasions are a treat to hold at Ruth Chris. They make it special - our reservations were on Open Table so I stated it we were celebrating a 3oth birthday. The hostess, our waiter and the manager wished birthday greetings to our guest. The menus were specially printed with birthday girls name and birthday greetings. The dessert we ordered Creme Brulee had Happy 30th Birthday written in chocolate on the dessert plate. The service was top notch and the meal delectable. I would not hesitate to recommed Ruth Chris South Barrington!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways love this restaurant,Always love this restaurant, great service every time!!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about our diningEverything about our dining experience was superb!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIn my opinion, Ruth's ChrisIn my opinion, Ruth's Chris consistently has the best steaks of any of the upscale steak house chains.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA++++++! The training theA++++++! The training the servers go through must be incredible! The entire staff was beyond amazing! Great for a romantic date! Steak is best ever!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYum.Went to Ruth's Chris Steak House for my husband's 40th birthday. We had a cozy booth. Had great wine and food. Love the shoestring potatoes and my petite filet. Great wine list too!3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSizzling buttered steaksThis is the place for ice cold martinis and sizzling steaks. By far, our most favorite restaurant. What they do to a dinner plate with butter before placing a steak for serving is absolutely amazing, hands down. This visit was a smidge heavy handed with the spinkle of pepper seasoning, but still very, very good. Side portions are still large enough to share except maybe the salads...but that is just my impression; we're big salad eaters. Our server was great; our meal paced perfectly and even a delightful dessert sampler surprise to celebrate our anniversary. We save Ruth's Chis for special occasions because the tab can get a little high, especially with apps and wine, but worth every penny.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWish I could give MORE than 5 starsWe took our son here for his 18th birthday. On top of the fact that everything we ordered was DELICIOUS, the service went way above and beyond. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. They hostess presented us with menus that had been personalized to wish our son a "Happy 18th Birthday". Everyone from the server to the manager to the table busser took excellent care of us and wished him happy birthday and made him feel special. At the end of dinner he received a beautiful dessert with another birthday wish on the plate as well as a hand written birthday card from the server and the restaurant manager and they presented him with his personalized menu as a keepsake. Thank you for making our sons day!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a business meeting there.Had a business meeting there. All of the meat was aged well, therefore tasty. The server had a very good witty personality, so the exchange with my customers was very good.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had a greatMy wife and I had a great meal. The steak was tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection. Nice job. Thanks!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm, inside and out!We went for Restaurant week. The menu ($44 ea) included lobster bisque or Ceasar salad or a mixed greens salad - 4 choides for entree, a side dish, and dessert (only one choice on dessert...bummer). Parking - terrible. Had to drive around forever to find a spot. Not sure what they charge for valet, but on a really cold night worth it. Our server, Gina C was fabulous. Friendly, informative and knowledgeable. Lobster bisque creamy with lots of lobster and sherry! Filets were great. Sweet Potato casserole was like dessert and creamed spinach yummy. Dessert was a chocolate mousse cheesecake - light and a perfect end. Too rich for my blood - can probably only afford during restaurant week. Nice side alcove booths for a romantic evening.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
