    Amazing food! Our waitress (Anna) was top notch, she made sure everything was to our liking. The atmosphere is a perfect mixture of cozy/modern/fine dining. We loved the food and our desert and they even added personal touches to our birthday celebration! We will definitely be coming back!

    Excellent dinner. Great service. Steal was cooked exactly how each of us asked. They really paid attention to detail. We went for a birthday celebration and they really made the birthday boy feel special and made it a celebration by having birthday confetti on the table, special happy birthday menus, a birthday card, even his dessert had happy birthday in chocolate written on the plate. I highly recommend Ruth's Chris Albany.

    First visit here. We had excellent service. Our server Leon was competent friendly and funny. Filets were tender and perfectly done. The restaurant has a formal feel but comfortable. Side dishes were plenty for 2 servings. The birthday was celebrated with table confetti and crème brûlée complete with a candle.

    Steaks were good, however very heavy on the salted side. I was so thirsty for the rest of the evening I compared the throat to eating at Olive Garden which I no longer eat due to the salt content.

    It was good. Just not nearly as good as any other Ruths Chris experience. When I was offered wine by the glass Cab the question was “How much do you want to spend?” No restaurant has ever asked me that before anything else . I settled on a $60 glass of Napa cab. Overpriced but it’s what I wanted. They were sold out of the house cab. So my only other cab option was $40. My ribeye was good not great. Too much butter and too salted. My wife had the fillet and she liked that. Cream spinach was too creamy. Overall just very ordinary. Not worth the prices. Chopped salad which we split was best part of the meal. We skipped deserts.

    From years of experience with several restaurants, I feel that servers provide better customer service when alcohol is purchased. Therefore, increasing the cost of your dinner and providing a greater tip. My wife was provided the complimentary cheese cake for her birthday celebration but no candle like a neighboring table was offered.

    What a wonderful experience with OpenTable, thank you for sharing with Ruth Chris that we were celebrating our anniversary, I never expected the rose petals and red napkins on our table, what a pleasant surprise. When we received our dessert plate "Happy Anniversary" was written in chocolate on the serving plate. What a great experience. Only one small complaint, not the fault of Ruth Chris, there was a business dinner seated near us, the salesman was loud as he spoke of his business.

    We had a party of seven for my brother-in-law's birthday. The table was decorated nicely and they had Happy Birthday menus for us - a very nice touch and were comfortably sat in the back room. Adam our waiter was excellent and was very accommodating to all our requests and questions. Excellent cocktails as well including a nice glass of the Caymus, Sangria, Prosecco, Sam Adam's cold snap beer, and pomegranite martini. My sister and brother law shared the porterhouse for two and they loved it - I plan on getting it next time. The prix fixe menu with the filet and lobster was enjoyed by my parents and myself. The stuffed chicken was absolutely incredible and enjoyed by my partner who avoids seafood and steak (his loss), so having a great chicken option on the menu is a huge plus. My nephew loved his kid 4 oz kids filet, sides, and dessert. The cheese cake desserts were also incredible and perfect size from the prix fixe menu. I'm excited to return soon.

    The food meets the expectations. Well prepared and tasty. The table service was worthy and attentive. My disappointment was with the host. Reservation was for 5 pm. Got there at 4:50 pm. We we were brought to a table next to the bathroom. I declined to sit there as the restaurant was about 25% full with plenty of table sitting throughout the dining room. The hostess was annoyed but I was even more annoyed. You don’t make reservations to a classy restaurant and expect to be seated by the bathroom.

    This was my first time trying out Ruth’s Chris. We had a late reservation (9:15) so I was kind of nervous about how the quality of the food would be considering they close at 10:30. It did not take long for us to be seated. The food arrived very fast. The waiter was polite and helpful considering it was my first time and my boyfriend’s vegetarian diet. I ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer and they were so good I can’t wait to try them again! The steak was PERFECTLY made and juicy, the Brussel sprouts were tasty as well. I definitely rate this place 10/10 and I will be back!

    I had the best ribeye ever at a restaurant! The stuffed mushrooms were tasty, but showed no real signs of broiling, unfortunately. Wine selection and desserts were plenty for a nice dinner out. I would have rated the ambiance higher had we not been seated next to a table of 7 work crew members enjoying a dinner out together. Service was outstanding.
