Ruth Chris used to give you a choice of a free dessert for your birthday. Now they just give you bread pudding. not as nice for an expensive restaurant.

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.

Went there for our 30th wedding anniversary. They gave us a free glass of wine to make a toast which was a nice touch. The service was great but the meals were very disappointing. I’ve had better filets at Texas Roadhouse, for Pete’s sake. Side dishes were tasteless. Nothing special at all. My husband thinks the lobster atop his Mac and cheese was extremely chewy to the point he thought it was not real lobster. Always wanted to try Ruth’s Chris. One and done.

My wife and I decided to attend the restaurant for our 14th wedding anniversary. It was by far the best meal we have ever had to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and the service and handling by the server Chris was second to none as he was absolutely outstanding! We will be back sometime soon as the service we received was impeccable, the food was delicious and totally spectacular, and the ambience was absolutely sexy and soothing. By far one of the absolute best times we’ve ever had!

Perfect birthday dinner for my hubby! Server was delightful and attentive! Shrimp appetizer was delicious and cucumber/tomato salad that came with it put a awesome taste in my mouth! My petite filets and shrimp was delicious as well! Tender and flavorful and enough to take home for another meal! Cream spinach is the best I have ever eaten! Mashed potatoes homemade and yummy!!

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.
