The lobster VooDoo was a delicious appetizer. The salads were ordinary but the broccoli soup was delightful. The steaks were PERFECT and the stuffed chicken was delectable. The carrot cake and creme brulee were wonderful dessert choices.

We come every year for a family outing during Savor Fort Wayne and Ruth Chris never disappoints. I was disheartened that we could not all sit at one table without a room charge of $2000 minimum. That is new, and I get it, but at the same time, Savor Fort Wayne is the draw and $2000 is out of line with 12 people during the promotion. We will back in the future.

Food was mediocre, for the price would rate it lower. Service was good, we had three couples, the waiter got all the charges wrong. He was very flippant about paying with their at the table credit card machine so none of us felt comfortable inquiring about the charges. They automatically tack on 20% to your bill for a tip. We all added more than that as we like to support wait staff.

Definitely not worth it for the cost.

When we arrived we were told they were running 5-10 min behind which was no big deal but we actually did not get seated for an additional 10 min. So they were 20 minutes behind. Then we sat down and ordered our drinks and then food. Our drinks came about the same time as our salads. My husband’s drink j was very watered down and disappointing. We ate our salads and waited a long time for our food. I asked for bread due to not getting any with our salads or drinks. The bread then came as our food was being served. My food and daughters were good but my husbands was very under cooked. For a place known for their steaks this was again very disappointing. We have been there numerous times before and have had a wonderful experience but this time was below satisfactory. So unfortunate when you are spending so much money.

Our service was great as were the drinks. I ordered the New York Strip and my wife ordered the filet. I asked the wife who would normally order the petite filet to order the regular filet. My thought was, that I would get the New York Strip then be able to sample her filet as well. I'm glad I did. The New York Strip was cooked correctly, but was still a poor quality piece of meat. Definitely not top 2% of all meat as advertised by the wait staff. Now, I understand New York Strip is a firmer piece of meat, and I order it often at other places. This piece of meat was gristly to the point afterwards I asked my wife for the plastic cocktail stick from her drink to get the stringy meat out of my teeth. Now, my wife's filet was perfect and tasted amazing. So, please learn from my mistake go with the filet over the New York Strip. Its not what you would expect from a Ruth's Chris quality meal or price point.

I was told to remove my hat upon entering the dining room which I courteously obliged. To my surprise when entering the dining room I found that most of the diners were not suitably dressed for the evening. If you are going to enforce the hat removal please also enforce a dress code. No gym attire, hoodies, jogger pants etc. You are charging a premium to dine at your establishment, live up to the standards.

We brought friends for an end of the year dinner and everything was wonderful. The food is always top notch. And our server was outstanding.

The only hiccup was when paying our bill. Their system was having some sort of a glitch that would not process our credit card. After a few minutes however, all was well.

This is an incredible restaurant and we will undoubtedly be back.

Fantastic overall experience. Only complaint is that we had to ask twice for more bread, which meant not getting it until dessert. Not a big deal at all. Again overall experience was great.

We waited 20 minutes for water. Another 15 after we ordered drinks. Our apps finally came after 55 minutes. Our waitress literally stopped taking our entrée order mid order to go to the table next to us and cut some lamb chops.

So strange. I literally just ordered the porterhouse for my wife and I and right as she’s asking what temperature, while I’m in mid “mediu…” - she leaves. And doesn’t come back for another 10 minutes.

My wife and decided to tell the waitress were going to pass entrees when she finally got back. I’ll say the drinks and food we did have were great. But an hour and a half for a cocktail, one glass of water and a couple crab cakes is an incredibly long time.

For how much you spend, you would think the staff would at least be somewhat attentive. I’d rather go to Baker Street or Eddie Merlot’s after this experience.

Deflated, we went home and ordered a pizza. It was delivered to our home in 25 minutes, only 5 minutes longer than the time it took to get water after we first sat down at Ruth’s Chris.

WOW!!!! I been to Ruth Chris 100+ times. Chicago, Scottsdale, SC, TX, CA, Indy, etc. Didn’t expect Fort Wayne IN to be the nicest by far! It was really great! Most are old wood, dark and tight. This was huge land wide open and modern. Friday night and nice atmosphere but quiet. Service was outstanding! Wine selection was great. My 13 year old son said it was the best meal
He has ever had. I know, he is 13. But he has been blessed to try Gibson’s, Hugo’s, Sullivan’s, Morton’s, Ditka’s, Shula’s, Tavern on Rush, etc.
Very great experience and we will be back!

This was my 3rd visit and every time I am blown away by the food and service. Waiters are polute, non-invasive and extremely knowledgeable. It is elegant but very comfortable. Took my nephew last night for his birthday, he had never been there before. Absolutely loved it. Thank you for always being exactly what you advertise.

Food is good, but not good enough to offset the cost. I have had just as good or better steaks in town for a fraction of the cost. Service was excellent as well as the atmosphere.

The service was OK, our server was new. They kept bringing the wrong appetizer. They kept bringing stuffed mushrooms that we never ordered.

I ordered the Elijah Craig 18yr. $35 a pour. I don't mind paying $35 a pour but, this was a very small pour, delicious but small. I ordered a Kentucky Spirit and was more of what I expected from a volume standpoint.

The food was good but not great. We were charged for stuffed mushrooms that we never eaten nor did we order.

Overall, I think it was good but not excellent and absolutely not worth the $300 bill. We will probably go to Club Soda or Baker Street instead next time.
