    Very enjoyable dining experience. My dining companion's filet was excellent. I may have expected rack of lamb in ordering lamb chops, as they were much more "fatty" than I expected--although very flavorful.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    The whole evening was a disappointment and full of waiting. First, even though we had a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes for our table to be made up. We waited at least 10 minutes to place our drink order, and another 15 before we could catch our waiter to ask for bread. To be fair, the meat/fish portions of our meals were wonderful, but the potatoes were lukewarm, the salads were wilted, and we were not given the desserts we requested. The raspberries on the cheesecake were molding...seriously! We would have sent them back, but our waiter had disappeared! The final insult is that we were charged for an extra dessert! Eventually, the bill was straightened out, but it took forever. We will not be returning.

    We dined at this restaurant as part of Stl Downtown restaurant week and were very impressed with the entire experience. Both the food and service were outstanding. The portions were large and the quality was impressive at any price. It was probably the best steak I have had in a long time. The sirloin was better than any filet at most restaurants. We will definitely consider this restaurant for our next special event. Thanks

    We had near perfectly cooked sirloin steaks, complimented nicely with creamed spinach. There menu is very American and straight forward. And they know steaks. The server was very pleasant and knew his stuff. Desserts here are not very interesting, so I docked their score a notch.

    GreatExperience
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    The reason we selected Ruth's (of numerous restaurants participating) was because it was a St. Louis food week fundraiser and we seized the opportunity to fund a good cause and experience a restaurant we had wanted to visit for a long time but the cost is a bit prohibitive. We had an incredible dining experience; the food was outstanding (steak cooked to perfection), sides and desserts great. Waiter, Benjamin, very nice, friendly, knowledgeable and didn't seem the least bit rushed or bothered that we were there for the "special cost/event menu" instead of a $50 steak. He and the additional wait staff were attentive and kind. The additional cost for the wine was affordable, $8 for a glass of a nice Malbec, and awesome with the steak.

    Gave it a try for restaurant week, not impressed. Steak was fair for a sirloin, potatoes might have even been powdered, creamed spinach was cold.......carrot cake was pretty good. Would have been better to serve me a smaller portion of a better cut. Carmine's driver was very good, would recommend them to anyone that asks.

    The waiter Phil was great and the food was good as always. The only downfall is that they don't have a kid menu. I had a 3-yr old and he ended eating a stuffed chicken breast that he didn't really care for. But we made the best of it. Also, we arrived a little earlier than our reservation time and it took them 10-15 min to seat us. I didn't like that but overall it was a great time.

    Having visited this chain in other cities, I looked forward to taking family members out to this Easter dining experience. It was a nightmare from beginning to end. The food tasted awful and lacked flavor. The Bloody Marys were overly spicy with far too much Tabasco. The salmon was overcooked, the beef filet too bloody, and the overall ambiance of the setting was unappealing. Maybe it is St. Louis... I will never return and will encourage others NOT to go there ! Please stay away !

    Ate here many times. Used to say a Ruth's Chris restaurant was a worry free meal (except price!). But, here, service has been disappointing a few times. This time, waiter took order, then never saw him again. Never checked with us after appetizer, salad, or steak. I had ordered wine to drink with steak. Never came. Steak cooled as I asked two bus people, then another waiter for my wine. Finally spotted my waiter, had to call him over. Wine came 20 min late. Kinda bothered me to need to tell them what to do, and be ignored, again, and again. I can get treated shabbily for much less money. But, next time I want to pay higher prices, I can go to several similar good options in town. I really do not like being treated like a chump.

    Ruth's Chris isn't one of those inventive new restaurants that will forever change how you see food, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's a high-end steakhouse chain, and nobody fills that niche better. The steak was incredibly tender and perfectly cooked, served still sizzling in butter on a hot plate with a perfectly-cooked lobster tail. The sides are enormous, meant to share, and they are incredibly rich and delicious. Our baked potato and creamed spinach seemed luxurious, and the steakhouse salad was a great way to start the meal. The carrot cake was also impressive. If you want classic steakhouse dishes cooked perfectly in an elegant atmosphere, and you don't mind paying a high price for it, this restaurant fits the bill.

    Ill make this quick and to the point...We seen more of the bus boys and helpers than we did our own server. He was more worried about the two other tables then ours. He had three tables and we seen him when he took our order, and when he brought us our bill. This place being a "Steakhouse" and they did not know how to properly cook a ribeye steak. Ordered it Medium and the meat was so dried out on the inside and burnt on the outside it was not even edible. Took one bite and spit that out of my mouth. Will never return to this place.

    I wish it wasn't so, but some things were lacking. Our waiter seemed to be stretched thin which hampered his service, with a staggering 3 tables to juggle. Even after expressing our need to be through with dinner in an hour, his delays kept us 30 minutes extra AND my wife had to eat her dessert in the car. We made the show literally 8 minutes before curtain. As far as the food, my wife loved her lobster and steak. The bread and salads were good and despite eating in a moving vehicle, she said the dessert was fantastic. My steak, average to good. It was cooked perfectly, but the only flavoring I could taste besides the beef was the butter. I know they broil it, but there are grill marks, I would like a hint of it being cooked over a fire.

    The service trailed off a bit at the end. Asked for lemon for the broccoli, never got it, daughter's diet coke was not refilled for 10 minutes or so, and glass of wine came after I finished eating (they comped it, but I would have gladly paid for it and drank during dinner). The food however was excellent and the service (up until near the end) was just fine. So close to a 5 star rating....

    Ruth's Chris never fails!! Great Filet! Here's my tip: Order your Steak Medium Rare to Medium then if it needs a little more cooking, just cut it and turn it side ways on the 500 degree plate and it'll be to your liking in seconds! Awesome!!

    Haven't been to Ruth's Chris in years. Steak was better than I remembered. Service was excellent. Only 1 complaint. No whole lobster! One of the main things my wife looked forward to. She had the lobster tail. It was good but definitely not a fresh lobster. Small disappointment in an overall outstanding experience!

    We have been to Ruth's Chris many times,.this time (Valentine's) was disappointing. They were busy but not so busy that they could not clear off the table of dirty dishes or refill water without being asked. We even drank our cocktails and had to ask for more. The next night we were at a $$ restaurant and Ruth's Chris is a $$$$ restaurant. At the $$ restaurant they would come back and refill our wine glass (we purchased a bottle) and at Ruth's Chris the waiter never refilled (we purchased a bottle). I expect better service at Ruth's Chris because that is what is included in the price (great service). The hash browns (which said on the menu "'must try") was nothing more than a package of dried out hashed browns cooked in a circle.

    The stuffed chicken was over seasoned. It was very tender but way too salty so I couldn't enjoy it. The prices are ridiculous, my side order of Julienne potatoes were $11.00 and my side of broccoli was $9.00. The entree doesn't come with sides. The waitress wrote the tip on my receipt which I thought was tacky. I made reservations for 8 people. It was my first time going and most likely my last.

    We spent the night at the hotel on the way home. We were tired and did not want to leave for a meal. Ruth's Chris was perfect. Everything was very nice. The only small problem was that we had to wait a little longer for service at times. This was due to the fact that they were busy due to an NFL game that had ended prior to our seating. Everything overall was great.

  • Worst of all Ruth's Chris
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/22/2013
    We have eaten at many Ruth's Chris across the country. This was the poorest of all that we have eaten. The service was not "polished" and the food (although good) seemed to be lacking slightly from the usual Ruth's Chris food. This would be ok except that Ruth's Chris prices can be high and one would expect to get food and service to match. This Ruth's Chris does not live up to expectations
