Service was good, as usual. However, two favorite food items were not available. Disappointing. We celebrate our wedding anniversary every year at a different Ruth Chris location.

Not enough staff, felt forgotten once a few more people were seated. Food was good but below average compared to previous Ruth Chris experiences.

We were a bit disappointed.
1. No valet
2. The Hostess for some reason took us through the entire restraint before seating us.
3. They forgot to give us our side dish which came with out meal. The manager did compensate us for this and came out to apologize.
4. They were out of petite Filets ( it a steak house)
our server was very good ( Jarod) and the manager did interact with us as she knew there were issues.
I am not saying I would never go back because the food was very good but not my first choice.

I have lived by the motto of "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything". But I must say this! We have always loved Ruth Chris, so that is why I chose to go there for my birthday. We were so disappointed this time around. The food was mediocre. The cocktails were weak and not very good. The amount we paid for dinner and drinks was overpriced and the service could have been better. The complimentary birthday dessert was also not edible.

The hostess was not welcoming and more concerned about the printer not printing the slip then our arrival. It was nice to have a window seat so we could watch the hostesses take three smoke breaks and stand on the corner and vape for the hour we were there.
The server was very friendly and informative. Made solid suggestions and was there to help.
The food was good but our sides were cold.
Beautiful restaurant and very clean.

The food was amazing, literally everything we ordered was perfect! Very clean and soft music playing, staff was beyond friendly and helpful even though it was busy they were quick and efficient. Our server Kyle was THE BEST PART OF THE NIGHT! He was so fun and had a great vibe, he complimented the meal and made our night so memorable. So glad we got the chance to experience his service.

Service was absolutely awful! It was my first and last time there. I’ve had better experiences at O’Charleys. The only saving grace was the sweet potato casserole, but that’s not enough to warrant a return visit.

We arrived a little early for our reservation so we ordered at the bar while we waited. The host came to seat us as soon as our drinks were served, after cashing out with the bartender we were handed off to a GREAT server. From start to finish it was a GREAT experience so we will definitely be dining in again soon.

We went during restaurant week. I ordered Ny strip and my girlfriend ordered the crab cakes. I ordered my steak medium when I received it and cut into it it was medium well a little overcooked but it had great flavor my girlfriends said her crab cakes were a little bland. Great atmosphere and wonderful staff we will go again.

We went out for dinner where our meal took 3 hours, our waiter was wonderful, service was friendly, but our salads never came we had to ask for them after our steaks had come twice. The manager didn’t apologize, no discount nothing, when you come for a 250$ meal you expect things to be done right, just saying it was very sad to finally be able to dine back in a restaurant and to have the food not even brought out in time, and the fact that we waited for over an hour for the food and it was the steak not the salad that came out… i would have appreciated them to comp a drink or apologize or comp the salad, something should have been done.

The food was absolutely amazing. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Our appetizer (ordered outside of the restaurant week menu) we’re the raviolis and we’re amazing as well. The sides were subpar. We had mashed potatoes and the sweet potato casserole. Service was 5/10. We sat for 10 minute before anyone even made eye contact with us. We had to wait to flag him down for almost everything we needed (bread, refills, desserts, check). He was the only bartender so I gave him credit for hustling but he made other customers a higher priority than us and even made doing dishes a priority even after we’d been waiting for refills. Other than that, it was a delightful evening and will be going back!

One filet was medium and perfect. The other filet was over cooked. Two 9 oz wines were ordered. One was 6 oz at best and the other was definitely 9 oz. Sides - Creamed spinach and sweet potato casserole both were delicious. Desserts were good

The restaurant is beautiful, the service also excellent. The steak was great melted in your mouth. I was not a fan of all the sides. Ordered calamari they came chewy, not crisp and not super fresh tasting. Taste like they came out of the freezer. Salad was good however the house dressing that came on it which appeared to be ranch was bitter, non creamy and not at all tasty. I ordered the sweet potato casserole it had so many nuts on top that it left the potatoes dry and the only thing you could taste was the nuts. Mashed potatoes also didn't seem freshly made, runny maybe made with water definitely did not taste milk, butter or cream.
Sorry Ruth Chris won't be back not a fan of the food.
