Due to the pandemic, there were only ~ 5 tables in total full. The service stunk - the girl who took care of us brought out our steaks, to which I asked for A1 and another glass of wine.... I'm sure the latter was the hold-up, but she decided to bring both out together... five minutes later while my food got cold.

With probably 4:1 servers to occupied tables, the service was like that the whole afternoon. Just made me question what they were actually doing... and questioned the tip % on a high dollar meal.

I'm all for supporting service workers and the hospitality industry, thus why we decided to eat out for Easter, but please try and act like you are hustling.

Everything was excellent! The streak, lamb chops, and sweet potato casserole were the best we ever had. The service was excellent too. We are ready to go back.

Took some work colleagues in and as in the past the food and drinks were amazing and special kudos to our awesome waitress.. Kaycie offered great drink and appetizer ideas initially and took great care of our table the whole time. This was a business dinner and the couple we brought were very impressed and enjoyed the experience.

Will repeat and will ask for Kaycie...

This was our first trip to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in any location. Steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious. Our server, Chris, was knowledgeable about the menu, personable, and very attentive. As this was a special occasion for us (we did not tell the restaurant), it was a perfect evening.

Tough to write a down review for a place that is supposed to be known for it's awesome steaks. I honestly just really was not that impressed for what you pay. The atmosphere was nice. It was quiet. We had a great table by the window. Our service was good by all those who waited on us. The food was just ok. I had a petite filet with grilled shrimp on the side. The shrimp and steak were minimally seasoned. I get that on a steak, but grilled shrimp are very boring without ample seasoning. The filet was not that great either. I"ve prepared better at home. I'm good with paying $200.00+ for a nice dinner out, but I had better be raving about how great all the food tastes. Sadly, there was nothing to rave about this meal.

Service sucked. Waited quite a while in between each of the 4 times total that we saw our server throughout the entire dining experience. Every time he stopped by he was looking at his other tables. Wouldn’t even make eye contact with us as he spoke to us. Felt like every interaction was in passing. Made the experience less than desirable and honestly wish i had gone to Hyde park. Regret. Food was okay.

We had reservations at the bar but then had to wait. The TV did not work and we wanted to watch basketball. The fist steak was over cooked the second one perfect. The service was just ok. The first rime we were there a month ago everything was perfect so we will try again

The man who served us was awesome. So patient and very attentive. He made that night wonderful for us (Mrs). We will definitely be coming back.

And the food was cooked to perfection. The sweet potato casserole was my favorite side. I hadn’t ordered it before now and I’m glad it was suggested to us.

We will not be back, which is disappointing given that we used to love the RC on 23. Probably the worst experience I’ve had at a columbus restaurant in a long time - from the initial welcome at entry through our exit. The RC team was not at all welcoming, service was slow, and food just average. We will stick with Jeff Ruby’s and Hyde Park.

My husband liked his steak but mine was charred and over cooked. Only 1 non seafood option on the appetizer menu which should be re thought. Many people like me don’t like seafood so there should be more options.

I love Ruth Chris especially their steak it comes out on a hot plate with butter underneath it can’t be beat I unfortunately didn’t like where I was sat. it was right in front of the kitchen door and there was hardly anybody in the restaurant I don’t understand why they would send anybody in that booth if hardly anyone’s in the restaurant. My husband has an allergy and I was shocked when our food came out that his food do not have any sort of identifying marks on it letting us know that the Cook had taking precaution with his meal one of the many Little details that goes along way when someone has a food allergy . We also we’re not served with silverware and had to wait I know this sounds like a first world problems but when you pay as much money as you pay to eat at a restaurant there’s little things that are expectations. But other than that we had a great time and probably if I’m going to have to spend more than $100 on a meal And I making my decision to go to a restaurant solely based on everything but the food I would probably go to a Cameron Mitchell restaurant.

One thing you should definitely try is there crème brûlée I’m kind of a crème brûlée snob LOL and this might be the best one I’ve ever tasted

Our waiter was excellent! Second time eating Ruth’s Chris just a different location in a different state, and the steak was still the best we’ve eaten. Expensive! Bill was $390 for two, not including the tip! So if you don’t mind paying big prices for good food, try it out.

I wish we had a booth. It would have been more cozy for us. The other concern was lack of craft beer option. Only 1 beer. The steak were great with that 500 degree plate. I do wish I had just a little more pink in there

Steak had no flavor. Both steaks incorrectly cooked. Coffee was cold. Mashed potatoes were plain. Lobster bisque and chocolate cake were good. Service was ok. Doesn't hold a candle to Jeff Ruby's. We were expecting similar food and service. We were greatly disappointed.

The steaks were overdone and the sides were cold. We spent well over $300 after tip and for this price the food wasn’t worth it. We didn’t send it back because it was close to closing and we didn’t want to wait. Service was good however. We over heard another couple complaining as well, they did send their steak back, which seemed to take a while to be redone. The gentleman asked for new sides because they were cold and the server told him that the kitchen was now closed and new sides weren’t available. They were ticked obviously and then asked for the bill not waiting for their meal. When you are paying $$$$ excuses for subpar food/service should never be given.
