    The team in Albany was amazing! Elias is an outstanding waiter. Next level service the entire night. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was perfection. Perfectly cooked steaks. Apps and salads were top notch as well. Drinks were also very good. Cannot wait to return!

    Our expectations were high since we saw their ads in airline magazines for years. The food were salty, I could not finish lobster bisque soup. Steak was done right, tender and flavorful. Overall it was not worth the price.

    Most of the meals were fine. My wife’s steak was undercooked on Mother’s day and the brussel sprouts were hammered. Ruth’s Chris fell short of high expectations.

    Really a very nice experience for Mothers' Day. Food was great, service a little slow, but they were very busy for the Holiday. We were a bit deceived thinking they'd have a more extensive Mothers' Day Brunch menu, but even ordering off the regular menu was OK. Definitely would return. No need to ever go back to 677 Prime.

    This is a high end restaurant and definitely will not go back. The service was awful. Most top end dining establishments will always have someone watching your table. The service was slow and non-attentive. Food was ok, will never pay those prices there again.

    What a fabulous evening! We took our elderly friend out for his birthday and it was such a wonderful evening. Liz, our waitress, was fabulous. The food was fabulous and we had such a great evening! Our elderly friends health is failing, so I’m not sure how many of these nights we have left, but I will always cherish this evening. Thank you for making it so special.

    Never received our appetizer, both steaks we ordered were not cooked properly. Medium was cooked rare and medium rare was cooked well, never received steak knives, never asked if we wanted another drink with our meal. We were offered a gift card but definitely not impressed. Much rather go to 677 prime or other premium steak house that offer much better service and food. I would say it is what you expect from a chain, as far experience with premium price.

    The food had good taste. My wife had the lamb chops and those were good. I ordered petite filet medium rare. It came to me a lot closer to rare than medium rare. Luckily the juices were boiling hot and I could cut the steak and dip to cook it a little more. As a former restaurant worker I can understand that happening. But the service was the main issue. It was busy and the waitress was clearly more concerned with the larger tables. We saw her for ordering and giving us our check. That was it.

    You're paying for the name and atmosphere. Food was good. For the price you pay it lacked flavor and the sides were basic. Probably wouldn't return. The sweet potato casserole was the star of the show. WAITED 2 HOURS to eat...with reservations...

    Food was excellent but also excellent value. The portions were very generous so the pricey reputation was exaggerated. We were very satisfied. It was my wife’s birthday and we were greeted and congratulated by both the staff and manager. My only semi complaint would be an overemphasis on wine. The beer selection was a little generic. No local brews or even good regionals like Ommagang. Wait staff was first rate. We look forward to another visit.

    I made the reservation for 5:45 PM and we arrived early. As we were pulling into the parking space, I received a text letting me know that our table was ready. That was phenomenal because were were about 15 minutes early. The hostess knew that we were celebrating our Anniversary and made sure to ask us about it. We were seated promptly and were greeted right away and had our water glasses filled immediately. The waiter approached and addressed us and asked about our celebration. The waiter was very friendly and provided excellent service. He explained about how the steaks are served and took our order. The appetizers came out in no time and they were good. The main course arrived and as promised the steaks were delivered on sizzling plates. The steaks were amazing, the au gratin potatoes were good and the creamed spinach was so-so. Of course the prices are quite expensive but for the quality of service and food, it is well worth it as a place to celebrate your special occasion.

    The atmosphere was really nice, except it bothered me that they have a dress code that they don't adhere to (I get it, no one wants to turn away business). People came in with sports hoodies, shorts, slides, etc. It kind of negates the fine-dining experience and the prices that go along with it. Our server was personable. The steaks were great, but not the best I ever had. Definitely way overpriced for what you get. Two steaks, ordered two sides that we shared, no appetizer, no alcohol, no dessert except my boyfriend's tiny little birthday cheesecake (not really shareable) that was complimentary, and with tip, our bill was $222. I did find it quite nice that they give you a birthday card and decorate your table with confetti. Nice touch. But, I wouldn't rush back unless it's for a special occasion. As far as the question below this comment section if I'd recommend to a friend? Yes, but with a warning that it is way overpriced and you won't walk out of there for less than $200 for two people.

    Outstanding service and crabcakes were some of the best I've had. And of course, the steaks, which come on a sizzling platter of seasoned butter, are top notch. The first bite is as delicious as the last.

    Arrived at 5:15pm, restaurant was pretty empty but filled up by 6. Were seated in a booth for 2 near the kitchen where the staff conversations were loud. Hostess should have been more considerate about placement. Staff was decent and didn't appear to be fully seated into a high end fine dining establishment. OK, and trying, but not yet seasoned. Food was typical. Wine was way overpriced. The Ruth's Classics have very limited entree options - a clear change from what they used to offer. This drove up our bill to the point that we may not take the drive from Saratoga to Albany in the future to eat here. There are better options. This wasn't bad, but there are better options.

    Our overall experience was excellent. The only complaint was at the bar I ordered a Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Grigio and they had neither of Those white wines. Apparently, they did not get their delivery. In my opinion, they could’ve run out to get some so they wouldn’t be out of both common wines. That was very disappointing for a quality restaurant.

    We celebrated our 43rd anniversary at Ruth’s Chris because we hadn’t tried it here in Albany yet. When we entered, the hostess congratulated us on our anniversary without any hints from us, our waiter, Leon, complimented us as well. He was very helpful in answering questions and making suggestions. He was friendly without being overbearing, and in chatting throughout the course of the evening, we came to feel like we known him for a long time. The rest of the supporting staff were also friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. The food was excellent and dinner was really enjoyable. The prices are undeniably steep, but for another special occasion we would certainly put this place in the top category for consideration.

    Upon arrival, we were promptly seated, Five minutes past until bread and water were on the table. Another 15 minutes had went by and a server from another section came over and asked if we had been helped we had not, and he went and found our server. he took our orders, and that was the last we saw of our original server after that it was just food runners and then again at the end of our meal we had to ask another server to get our check for us. The food was great, but the service was certainly lackluster for the type of environment. Quite disappointing

    The restaurant experience seemed a bit unprepared. Our server was definitely new and a little bit of help would have served him well. He was nice enough but continuously checked on us to upsell something. My steak was ordered medium rare and came out definitely rare with a cold center, not something I expect from Ruth's Chris. The manager seemed lost in his day to day activities, like he didn't know what to do or say. Food took early an hour to come out and the bill was charged wrong. I'll go back and see what progress they make but for now it need a little bit of help.

    Everything was great from start to finish. Rivals the more expensive NYC steakhouses. The only miss was a “loaded” baked potato that was absent almost all the toppings.

    Had a wonderful dinner last night. Our server, Adam, was wonderful. Friendly, knowledgeable and made some great recommendations to us. One of the managers stopped over to check and see how everything was, which was very nice. Food was delicious. Will definitely be going back.

    Everything was wonderful except...we both ordered filet on the bone medium well, both of ours were more medium rare., close to rare by the bone. We did not send them back. For my first experience there it was disappointing to pay a high price for a meal that was not cooked as requested, or really even close. Not sure if I would recommend to friends or not.
