It took about 15 minutes for the server to take our drink order and another to get the drinks. It was very evident that the service was going to be extremely poor and we weren’t willing to spend $400-$500 on the dinner. If you check your records you will see that we have been a long time customer. That was our fifth time at that location and something has drastically changed.
We ended up leaving after finishing our drinks and still no server for our order at the time.

S...L...O...W!!! We celebrated a birthday with a dinner at my favorite restaurant. Meat was delicious but our server neglected to bring us our sides and refills. Then our dessert order was wrong and we finally had to leave before we were even served. He seemed to have plenty of time for a larger table so I’m not sure what the issue was. I hope whoever got the food we paid for enjoyed it.

There was no indication that the valet parking was not offered when the reservation was made. This is important due to the fact that this is a downtown location with no parking garages available. It was up to me to park the car.

I made reservations to celebrate my five granddaughters birthdays all born in the month of August. This was our first visit to Ruth Chris. We all were extremely excited about the evening. Of course we all did not arrive at the same time which required a wait time to be seated. This was a little inconvenient however not a major damper to the evening. While waiting at the bar I engaged in conversation with Bartender Rose who was kind a s customer friendly. After all my granddaughters arrived we were taken to our seat in a nice quiet corner of the restaurant. The atmosphere was excellent for a group of young women ranging in age 16-22. At the table we met Travis who did an absolutely amazing job of making sure we had an awesome experience. The food was delicious, my granddaughters could not stop talking about how good the food was from the seafood tower to the happy birthday slice of cake with happy birthday written on each of their plate. The surprise came when the
bill arrived. However I must admit I would do it all again for my granddaughters to all share in a evening of family, dress, enjoyment and fun with the evening being capped off with delicious food and amazing service was all worth it. My granddaughters are still talking about the evening. The memory of the evening will forever be priceless. Thank you Ruth Chris staff specifically Rose and Travis. We will be returning.

I’ve ate here before... not sure if it’s because of the pandemic or “EWB” but the service was terrible. Waited an hour for drinks, they took our food to the wrong table, waiter never check on us after we were served. Just horrible, for the price, service should be exemplary.

Good meal although both our steaks were overcooked, mine was medium when I asked for med-rare and my husbands was med well instead of medium. They were tender and tasty, just not what we asked. We were looking for the terrific steaks we have heard about from others and these didn’t deliver

If judged against normal restaurants, ours was a wonderful experience. The food was great, the service was good. However, when judged against its peer restaurants, such as Shulas, Cameron Mitchell, and the Top, I dont see that Ruth Chris' performs at the same level. The price point was the same as these other restaurants, but the experience was not up to par with the others. This was my first experience at Ruth Chris' and maybe they are all affected by the COVID requirements, however, when we visited Cameron MItchell's Ocean Club a few weeks ago, they still seemed well on point and was a much better experience than this one.

Fantastic food, drinks and location! Parking is a little tricky but there are a lot of spots on the side streets or North Market. I went with some friends for their happy hour and sat in the bar area in a booth. The atmosphere was chic but relaxed and was perfect for a quick bite after work. We got the calamari and spicy shrimp as a starter. I was nervous about seafood in Columbus but it was so good we ordered another spicy shrimp! There were 3 of us and we weren't that hungry but didn't want to pass on a steak. Our server recommend we get a ribeye and they could split it for us! It was the perfect solution and our waiter recommend a wine to pair with it. I don't remember the wine but the pairing was great. I was too full for dessert but they all sounded so good. I can guarantee I will definitely be back!

will not go back. got seated right away by a window. it took a long time to get water. she then didn't take our drink order. that took so long we thought about going to the bar. our salads came before the drinks. After ordering she came back and said out of an item. we only had one drink as she never offered another. food came very fast. she has one even cleared dishes. we also had to ask for bread. steaks were good as usual. au gratin potatoes were not cooked. mashed potatoes were a soup mainly butter. grilled shrimp was rubbery and bland. she did take it off the bill. waitress was nice but overworked. definitely crossing off the list. had gone down hill since christmas

My daughter’s 25th birthday. It’s one of her favorite restaurants. She’s been dining at Ruth Chris since she was 8 years old. Really missed the original staff , especially the manager Dustin at the old Crosswoods location. It’s still a good experience in downtown, but the best staff and manager and all around service at the original Crosswoods location. We missed them all.

I made reservations in advance and requested a private table since it was our 14th wedding anniversary. We came in to see that there were about 4 other groups in that same area which was unexpected. Additionally, my wife said the restrooms were not clean and paper towels/tissue was everywhere. Finally, the majority of the items we wanted on the menu weren’t available so we had to settle for something else. I expected a lot for the amount spent and the special occasion, but unfortunately the experience wasn’t as good as I thought it would be.

The host greeted and acknowledged me and my fiancé. Our server Kyle welcomed and congratulated us on our engagement and becoming first time home owners. He went above and beyond to provide a great guest experience for a special occasion. Especially, with not being able to celebrate during the COVID restrictions. We had great overall experience.

I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris several times, but it was the first for my fiancée. We ordered the prize fixe menu items, the petit and lobster tail for me, the petit Oscar for her. My starter was the stuffed mushrooms and the Caesar for her. Both were quite good. The steaks were cooked to order and she enjoyed the experience of the sizzling plates.

Out wait staff was present but not overbearing, and I was amazed he could run down the specials with that mask in place and still be understood.

The drinks we ordered were very nice and that rounded out the experience nicely.

Ruth’s Chris never disappoints.
