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!

We have been to a lot of higher end steakhouses, but Ruth’s Chris is by far one of the BEST! The way they season their food is top notch and we will definitely be a returning customer!

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.

We attended Ruth’s Chris for restaurant week. The choices were delicious. Expect an up charge for anything you want to add in addition. The plates come out very hot! Like too hot to the touch! So be careful. The steaks were delicious. The service was amazing.

The server was inexperienced. He was focused on everything else besides taking our order. He kept looking around like he was being chased. When our first course arrived, he placed my salad on the table near the edge for me to retrieve and he made my wife take her salad from his hands as he was carrying a table to serve someone else’s meal at the same time. Generally fresh pepper is offered as well….not this time. We didn’t even have salt/pepper on the table. I had to retrieve it from the bar as he was nowhere to be found for 10 min after receiving the salad. The second course was subpar. I had the stuffed chicken which was very salty and my wife had a steak which was supposed to be medium well and it was more medium rare in the center. It was not flavorful as well. The cream spinach was very watery as it seemed like it was being thinned to preserve it. We received the bill before receiving the dessert. The only reason the dessert was retrieved is due to him overhearing me state to my wife that we hadn’t received it yet. And not once did we get offered a water refill until we inquired. Needless to say, it was a horrible dining experience. I would have to think twice before returning.

the food was as good as always if not better, the usual outstanding steaks, crab cakes and truly superb salmon were all perfectly prepared and totally delicious; sweet potato casserole was out of this world (maple pecan glaze wow) as was the usual for the garlic mashed; chocolate sin cake was definitely sinfully good....BUT... not sure if like ~all restaurants now, finding help is seemingly difficult, but nearly 3 hours for a 3 course meal is WAY TOO LONG!! Wasting your patrons valuable time, not cool.- Our waiter was very polite and continually apologized for numerous delays (for drinks, apps, entrees AND desserts, but these gaps between courses were FAR more extensive than at other similar quality restaurants...even today. Do go but make sure you have plenty of spare time and pay the meters for the full 3 hour limits!!!

We had a very pleasant meal. Our waiter was very good and our meals were excellent. But, we all commented that we wished they would enforce their dress code. Short, short shorts are not business casual.

Good food and service. Still working out a couple of kinks at the host stand, but nothing major. Felt a little more casual - other guests dress - than I would have expected for an RC. I will return though.

Reservations made over one week in advance yet upon arrival was told a table was not available and our party could sit in the lounge. Although we were disappointed we proceeded to the lounge area only to wait over 10 minutes without being greeted or provided water. Needless to say we left and enjoyed a pleasant dinner at Lindey's. The manager did call and leave a message stating that the customer service provided was unacceptable. The call was appreciated.

Our steak was tremendous. All the food was great. The service had a fantastic personality. Things did get slow though as they got busy. We were there for three hours. We were disappointed when we got bread pudding instead of the cheesecake that we were expecting as part of the package that we picked. It was tiny and although good, it was not what we would have preferred and I think it should have been told to us upon ordering that they would be making a substitution. Perhaps giving an option of other desserts would have been appropriate.

Sorry to say that it took 25 minutes to get two vodka rocks (and the bar and restaurant were not close to full), and one of our steaks was medium-well when it was ordered medium-rare. The shrimp and lobster which were part of our price fixed menu were cold.

I like Ruth’s Chris, but the Columbus Ohio location needs some work.

Our waiter, Chris, was great. It wasn’t his fault that the drinks, steak and sea food were not up to par.
