Great beef and seafood, all fixed just as ordered. Love this place. Quiet, and wonderful staff.
Menu favorites that are listed never seem to be available even when listed. Last couple of times no dessert specials (which they are famous for). Creme Brulee has shrunk since the last visit. Masks which are supposedly required aren't enforced. Only went this time as it is an anniversary tradition for us (our 29th)
Received comps for dinner at Ruthies. Nice looking place and all servers masked up. Surprisingly quiet given how close to the gaming floor it is. Shrimp cocktail was excellent! Pheasant civet very one note and messy to eat. The Caesar salad was served very oddly with whole Romaine leaves dripping with dressing and two whole anchovies on a toast point. Very messy to eat and odd. Rosemary rack of lamb was very good but the polenta under was very liquidy, Shrimp and mussels was again super messy to eat as they leave tails on the shrimp and the mussels were tough - would not recommend this dish
Drink are strong but small. Wine was very nice. Very pricey for the quality so would not be a regular unless the comps keep coming.
Amazing lobster and steak... sides were really good and nice portions... love the breads and butters... service was top notch
Love this place, no longer any nice "Steak Houses" in or around Iowa City. So glad we found this place in November, now we wouldn't think of going any other place. Filets are amazing, Wedge salad is to die for and I had their French Onion soup... Delicious!! Highly recommend Ruthie's!!!
Delicious food, awesome service-but really loud patrons at a couple of tables! Maybe it was just the certain crowd but kinda ruined a fabulous meal!
Our meals were absolutely perfect, the service was very warm and friendly and the atmosphere was calm and romantic
Service was excellent. Just the right tone for ourselves and our guests. Menu was explained well and our birthday guest was very well treated
The food and service was outstanding!!! One of the best restaurants we've been to.
RE-opening has its issues,. Waiter was rather new and had a hard time multi-tasking, but was very courteous and helpful. Waited 20 minutes to get our first drinks after ordering. IT got better as the evening went on.
All food was outstanding, service was friendly and prompt, can’t think of anything they could do better.
I am glad this restaurant opened back up. Food was tasty. Service was great. Before the pandemic, demand was really high at this place. Reservations are now recommended and I am glad there is a website to this. Thanks Opentable
Thank you for the stars and comments! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. Hope to have you back again soon! -Ali Salow, Ruthie's Fine Dining Manager
I made mention of my son's 30th birthday in the reservation and when we arrived at the restaurant. Usually at high priced steak houses they will give you a mini dessert with a candle. Nothing. Disappointed.
Food was fantastic! Great steak!
Service was above and beyond !
Had the New York strip, shrimp and mussel ravioli, meal was so yummy, the side dishes were cool, when we pointed it out to the server it was immediately taken care of, wonderful service. Would recommend Ruthie's as a great place to dine. Wonderful service and food. We will be back.
Thank you, Dona. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal and service. Please come back again soon! -Ali Salow, Ruthie's Fine Dining Manager
First time eating here and was pleasantly surprised. The service was impeccable the the selections were varied and delicious. Would definitely go again!
Service top notch. Drinks and wine selection exceptional. Steaks good. Nice date night evening out with my husband. But wish they would have a dress code because this dining room is not a “t-shirt and ball cap joint”. I was in a dress and my husband a sport coat, nothing fancy, but we were the best dressed table for a Saturday night. Reflection on our society more than this restaurant.
The restaurant had a nice ambiance and was quiet. The food was very good with a marginal value. Our server, Stephanie was excellent. She was attentive to every detail and did extremely well albeit her second day.
My second time to Ruthie's. First time was very good. This time the Steak was not prepared well. Caesar was very small. The Wine list and the price of the wine was very good.
Very nice place great food and the best staff I have ever seen. Always something new on the menu.
We've had Brandy as our waitress the last two times we've visited Ruthie's. She's awesome! Very knowledgeable, and knows the ins and outs of the restaurant. Very fast service. Food came out at perfect timing between courses. We love Ruthie's!
I have been here 3 times with my wife and each time the food and atmosphere have been incredible. We cant wait to come back.
This was our third visit to Ruthie’s. It never disappoints! The food is amazing every time. My favorite was the wedge salad-best I’ve ever had!y husband and I had the beef medallions and shrimp. Both were cooked perfectly & were delicious ! Our server was attentive even though he was taking care of several tables. We’ll be back!
Great food and service, a bit pricey but worth it!
It took awhile for the server to come over to our table and had to keep reminding him about things. Food was very good.
I absolutely love Ruthies! It is such a special restaurant to celebrate special times. Our filet was very flavorful and tender, garlic mashed potatoes yummy, but the broccolini was a bit over cooked. I’m definitely going back!
We had a nice meal with friend. Good food and atmosphere.
We love this place. It's pricier than an Outback Steakhouse and the like, but so worth it. The food and the service is always amazing.
Thanks for the review!!
It was a busy New Year’s Eve night, so I think things were a tad rushed and they were too overwhelmed to deliver their usual level of refinement. The food just wasn’t up to the quality we’ve experienced there before.
NYE dinner with my lady provided an early start to the festivities, with tenderloin medallions, seared sea bass, slivers au gratin', roasted mushrooms and of course creme brulee'. Nate was both attentive and accommodating, seeing to our every need. Happy 2020 to all!
Food was great; service was just the right amount of attentive; very nice atmosphere
Thank you, Cyndie! We look forward to your next visit!
The service was top notch and food was beyond amazing.
Thanks for the review, Jill! Hope to see you in again soon!
Had lobster tails, cooked to perfection, husband had new York strip, med.rare, also excellent, blue cheese wedge, yum!!
Thank you, Susan for the review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your meal!
The food/service at Ruthie's is always stellar. I do think the pricing is on the high side, but it's definitely worth it for a special occasion.
Thank you, Kiki. We hope you dine with us again soon!
I was excited to try out Ruthie's Steak House with my husband for their advertised Thanksgiving dinner. We were very pleasantly greeted by top notch service and a warm, very classy atmosphere. However, though we had reservations for Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day, it was just 1 entry item on their full list of menu items. This might be great for people who want something other than a traditional turkey menu. But we were ready to splurge, thinking it was for a special thanksgiving meal, but instead we paid $29 ++ for a plate of very dried out turkey roll ups with stuffing inside, a little dollop of garlic mashed potatoes, and 3 roast baby carrots. Nothing else. No gravy, cranberries, and no option for pumpkin pie (my thanksgiving meal standards). We ended up paying extra to have salad, which we enjoy with ever meal. We left room for desert, since we could not bare our way thru the dry turkey, but the desert menu seemed pretty standard, and nothing special or festive about it, so we chose to forgo that. The wine recommendation we received from expert there was very good, and because of the service and atmosphere, we left not completely disappointed. But we would never go back for their Thanksgiving dinner. They did serve an included small bread basket with special butters and olive oil dip which was very good, as well as ceasar salad we ordered, so I have confidence that they would have other very good menu items, so we will likely go back and try again when we want a classy dinner atmosphere.
Hi Sandra- We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our Thanksgiving entree. Please give us another try and we would be happy to make menu reccomendations for you. Thank you for your feedback.
We always have excellent service and food.
Always a special evening at Ruthie's.
The experience was incredible from atmosphere to service to food. Cannot wait to go there again.
Thank you, Tina!
Everything about our first experience was perfect. Prices on first sight look high, however, quality and taste made it very worthwhile.
Great staff. Kyle was great recommending wine! Thank you!
Great food. Quiet inside so you don’t feel like your eating in the middle of a casino. Steak, lobster, crab cakes, creamed corn, Brussels sprouts were all great! Homemade margarita was outstanding. Very pricey but worth the money.
