    I have always enjoyed Ruth's Chris, always. The food was great as it always is, I just did not care for our server and felt the service was lack luster. We were there for my husband's birthday, the annual pilgrimage to celebrate. I heard our waitress asking other tables as they were seated if they were there celebrating anything but never asked us if we were. She took a long time to even come over and say hello, to the point that I was going to go to the hostess stand and ask where our waitress was. The assistant waiter was fine, though we didnt see him often. The attitude, lack of attention, and general unpleasantness toward us by our waitress was not typical of Ruth's Chris and EXTREMELY disappointing. Especially when over my shoulder I heard another waitress going out of her way for her tables and checking on them regularly.

    I came here on a date with my girlfriend this past weekend and the food was delicious and the wine was very good. We made reservations for 8 and we were seated by 815, we were in a very quiet area which I enjoyed so we could have an intimate date without over hearing anybody elses conversations. We both enjoyed the date at Ruth's Chris. I definitely recommend the place.

    i had made reservations for my husband welcome home ( 9 month deployment) i called ahead so they can have something special , they told me they would decorate the table. We got there and nothing happen, after we got done w dinner i complain and manager brought a dessert which i had already got one for my husband. I was very annoy and mad since our special occasion was just like any other dinner. Plus the waiter was prob new since he didn't know much about the menu.

    My boyfriend and I love coming here for special occasions or just for a date night when we need a nice night out of being pampered. I especially love their wedge salad - which is one of my favorites around town. I've tried several alternate entrees here (chicken, crab cakes, chilean sea bass) and I'd say stick to the steak - it is, after all, what they're known for. The sweet potatoes are an amazing side - they're served with a brown sugar and nut crust and they are a personal favorite. Service is almost always excellent. They really spoil you - even scraping the crumbs from the fresh warm bread and whipped butter (yum) off the table before your entree plates are brought. Creme brûlée is delicious here - vanilla bean with berries.

    I was 30 min late for my reservation due to weather and horrible traffic but it seemed that several others were late as well and they gave me no trouble about it. They checked my wet coat for free. We were seated immediately but our server Shannon seemed to not be around very often. She did ok but usually the service is EXCELLENT so this lack really stood out. It was still a very nice evening. The steak, blueberry mojito and cheesecake were the highlights of the meal.

    My wife and I were enjoying a special occasion and had kot been to Ruth's in years. We were immediately won over by the aroma of sizzling steaks at te next table and the level of service. The wine and cocktail lists were excellent, and the friendly service remained attentive and friendly throught the evening, just right. The food was outstanding, with the steaks beautifully seared and seasoned, just the right temperature. The vegetable sides were fresh and cooked perfectly.

    I had heard that Ruth's was expensive and it is a little but well worth it if you love steak. The environment was beautiful and inviting. They came out with a cake and candle for my spouse's birthday without asking, our server seemed nervous but very professional and willing to get all we needed. Overall, great experience I would definitely return.

    Service was FANTASTIC. Appetizer (Shrimp) was nearly the best we've had. The steak (my NY strip and his prime rib) unfortunately was over-cooked and charred. The spinach had no flavor whatsoever and we should have gone with mashed potatoes instead of the diced.

    I have dined at dozens of high end steakhouses, but none is as consistent as Ruth's Chris for quality of food and service. This was our first visit to the VA Beach location and we were not disappointed. Fork tender filet mignons cooked perfectly, fantastic chopped salads, and delectable sides (potatoes Au gratin and fresh peas) made for a perfect meal to cap off our VA Beach vacation. Service was exceptional, and the drink special was delicious as was the wine recommended by our server. We will definitely return to this location the next time we visit.

    I was asked by the CEO to obtain a private dining area in close proximity to the Hilton Garden Inn. Ruth's Chris was the only restaurant that could accommodate this request and also offer great food and a very pleasant dining experience. Would highly recommend the "boardroom" for business lunch or dinner.

    Took my wife there for her birthday and it was excellent, as this restaurant usually is. The wait staff was very attentive and was there when we needed them. The steaks are far above the average steak house fare. We ordered the filets as we have found them to generally be better than the other cuts they offer. The sides are very good, although not particularly exceptional. The cost to dine here is several times what we ordinarily spend to have dinner, but once in a while for a special occasion it is nice to splurge.

    My wife and I had dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House this past Friday evening and were extremely pleased with the ambience, the outstanding service, and the food. She had the 80z filet with scallops and shrimp special and I ordered the large filet (which was huge). They were both cooked to perfection ... mine a perfect medium rare and perfect medium for her. Her baked potato was huge and delicious. I ordered the crisp shoestring potatoes which were served inside of a cloth napkin. They were delicious, but not the crispness I expected because of the steam created by the fries inside the napkin. I Suggest no napkin. Will we return? By all means. We loved it. Virginia Beach is extremely lucky to have such an outstanding restaurant.

    Been here numerous times & have always had an extremely pleasant experience. Food was excellent as usual. Gaston is our favorite waiter but his assistant was not up to par. He removed my dessert plate that I had only half eaten and I had to stop him from walking away with it before I could tell him I wanted to take the remaining dessert home. Then I got an annoyed look. Don't need attitude with my steak. Management spoke to me about my complaint. Like I said, first ever criticism.
