Diner Reviews
  • "The food was to die for, and our server was absolutely fantastic!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We went for the Queen's Feast and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. I had the petit filet, which was sizzled to perfection and melted in one's mouth. My husband ordered the crab cakes from the King's Feast menu and we shared the surf 'n turf which included the best of both worlds. The creamed spinach was excellent, the wine selection expansive and the cheesecake and chocolate bark scrumptious. Ali was very professional and courteous."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Everything was outstanding with the exception of the sides. We ordered the creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes (but ended up with creamed spinach and mushrooms)... The spinach was bland as were the mushrooms. The Filet and Pork Chop were outstanding as was the appetizer of Calamari (Would definitely order this if you like calamari). The creamed sweet corn and leek soup has was fantasic as well. The desert was cheesecake and chocolate bark, so delicious - actually brought back a childhood memory of my favorite cheesecake. So, all in all... the dinner was fabulous as long as you skip the sides and try everything else."

  • "Although the restaurant was full we were seated at our reserved time of 7:30. We were immediately served a glass of water and informed Marvin would be our server. Marvin arrived promptly and asked for our drink orders and gave us some recommendations. After taking our drink order, he left and returned soon with them and proceeded to take our dinner order and gave us details about the Queen's feast and King's feast. He was so upbeat, kind and courteous through the entire dinner that it made our night a delight. The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait for it. That was a plus considering there were no empty tables and they have been serving 500-600 patrons a night. Definitely will dine there again."

  • "We had a very nice dining experience at Ruth's. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and provided excellent suggestions for our dining pleasure. The food was well prepared, tasty and not over-powering in terms of quantity nor use of herbs & spices. We enjoyed our night out as part of the Queen's Feast restaurant festival."

  • "The waitress must have been a little tired. I ordered coffee which was brought out quickly -- too quickly for lunch on a hot day. No wonder -- it was tepid. When I asked for fresh coffee, she told me it would have to be made. That should have been done when I ordered it."

  • "Had a girl's night out with a friend during restaurant week. We both had the steak house salad - good sized portion, house made balsamic vinaigrette tasted good. I had medium rare tenderloin filet with grilled shrimp - steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned with almost a peppery crust which added nice flavor. My friend had the marbled bone-in pork chop with veal butter and said it was delicious. I liked that the dessert was a duo of cheesecake and chocolate bark - we didn't have to choose one and then share with each other. Both desserts were tasty, small portions - enough to have several bites without being too much at the end of the meal. Everything was great - food, service, atmosphere. I have been before and will continue to go."

  • "Ruth's Chris Uptown is our favorite restaurant and is THE BEST in Charlotte hands down! I have dined at all of Charlottes upscale restaurants and this one here is the ONLY one that lives up to the "hype". Steak cooked to PERFECTION, Lobster was FANTASTIC, Stuffed Chicken Absolutely DELICIOUS, and that Sweet Potato Casserole was EVERYTHING! Can't forget the Caesar Salads and Barbecue Shrimp which were also EXCELLENT! Staff is ALWAYS polite and courteous. They set the bar !!!"

  • "These guys just deliver high quality every time. I've never been dissatisfied and have been many times. My favorites are the filet and the bone-in cowboy ribeye. Temperatures always come out perfect. Totally unpretentious atmosphere. Just good steak seasoned with salt, pepper and butter. Scalloped potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, crab, lobster...all good. Prices are totally fair. You can easily pay more for less just down the street. Or you can travel abroad, pay a whole lot more, and get less. This place is 10 minutes away and the valet is free (plus tip), quick and easy. You'd pay at least $5 to park it around the corner and walk, so why not class it up and just pull right up front? Service is always top notch. Will go again."

Ruth's Chris manager, waitress, and entire team made my friend feel so special. They had a glass of champagne with a raspberry, a birthday card signed by the entire staff, and confetti ribbon on the table when we arrived. I had the ahi tuna salad and he had the salmon with carrots and and side of sweet potatoe casserole. The waitress also brought him dessert with a candle. No singing thankfully. The portions were perfect and the food was delicious as usual. Thanks again to the Ruth's Chris team for making my friends birthday and our lunch a phenomenal experience!"

Then the main course arrives almost immediately. Had to ask for a steak knife for my rib eye and butter for my wife's lobster tail. For the money this was just OK."
