    Went to Ruth's Chris for dinner with my mom and boyfriend- their first time meeting. My mom has never been to a Ruth's Chris before and she absolutely loved it. Lindol gave great service-knew his stuff and helped her pick out what he thought she would like and was very attentive to everything. Her steak was cooked to perfection (which rarely happens) shoutout to Andy on the broiler! Very good experience and now I see what all the rave reviews are about!

    My family took me out to celebrate a recent promotion. The service was friendly and excellent (although we did feel as if we had met everyone who was working that night). I had the corn chowder, swordfish, and chipotle fingerling potatoes which was all very good with the star being the corn chowder followed by the fish. Overall a great time was had by all and we will return again as we always do.

Steaks were done just right; sides were perfecto and appetizer/salad were spot on. With a great bottle of wine and excellent service from Tim and helpers we could not ask for more. God willing we will be back for #45 !!!! Thanks

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    I made a reservation at this restaurant for lunch to celebrate my birthday and knew that it would be quick. There were 5 of us and only 3 tables with people in the whole restaurant. We ordered off of the 30-minute lunch menu. We spent over an hour in the place. Even when we were ready to get our bills, the waiter took 5-10 minutes to bring them and then another 10 minutes to bring them back. I was very disappointed in the service as I have been here before. I would come back again, but I was did not have a Happy Birthday lunch.

    We love to go to Ruth's Chris for Birthday Dinners as a family. Saturday night we celebrated a family birthday. Our waiter was Luke who was truly exceptional as a waiter - suggesting cocktails and a wonderful wine pairing. Of course, we knew which steaks we wanted! The food came out at one time, steaks perfectly cooked and everything hot and tasty. The desserts were wonderful. The experience is comfortable and not at all stuffy for an uptown steakhouse.

We enjoyed steak and seafood dishes and especially liked the sweet potato casserole as a side. Our server, Ken, was gracious, personable and prompt with all of our requests. This restaurant consistently delivers an excellent dining experience from start to finish.

    Ruth Chris restaurants are always good. Love the way the last bite is as hot as the first bite. First time at the uptown restaurant, a little complicated to get to, thank heaven for valet parking. Eaten at many Ruth Chris around the country and never had a bad meal. Waiters are very knowledgeable.

    I've been going to Ruth's restaurants for nearly 30 years and rarely ever had a bad meal. I love the filet the best. The only issue with the uptown restaurant is that the city of Charlotte does not allow for valet parking during the weekdays until after 6:00pm. We had a reservation for 5:30pm. The manager Chris was kind enough to take care of my car instead of me having to find my way to a parking garage.

    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.

    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.

    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 !!!
