Customer Service : POOR
Food: AVERAGE

Birthday dinner for 3. We arrive 10 minutes after reservation time. There was some tension with the hostess and management and one of our guest because of managements lack of communication. The tension led to the hostess seating us direct in front of kitchen walkway, hostess booth and waiters area. Not only were we in the center of chaos ( waiters and servers brushing by our seats and almost colliding every few minutes) we were denied another table because “ this is the only table we have available”. There were 4 booths and 2 tables visibly open from where we were sitting and no one was sat after us. It was also very cold in this area.

All of the glassware on the table was FILTHY. There were large food specs on all of the bread plates they were replaced for more plates with just as much food on them. The wine and water glasses had food particles on them that made the glasses textured. We requested straws and kept it moving.

Food was okay overall. It took over an hour to get our food which included appetizers . This was an issue since the bday girl is 6 months pregnant. She realized she was still hungry and wanted to order more but couldn’t because it was after 11. We received our entrees at 11:20pm. Bday girls Fried lobster was good but small for a main protein and the Asian salad was more like decoration. Asparagus was bland. Our other party had the filet and lobster with creamed spinach( watery, no seasoning no cheese NO FLAVOR). I had the lollipop lamb chops as an entree with the lobster Mac as a side. Both were AMAZING. We also had a cake but declined to get it served since there was a$35 cutting fee.

Overall the meal was not worth the trouble of crossing the bridge and paying for parking. We’ve had many fine dining experiences and this was below our expectations.

Even though we made reservations we still had to wait 25 mins to be seated. They ran out of sea bass and mash potatoes . The bar was backed up . When they built the center city location they definitely should have invested in a waiting area for guests. Lots of chaos with customers waiting to be seated and servers trying to move through customers because there is no where to sit.

What a great meal!!! We were present again for a tri-annual event and had a stupendous meal. Our waiter George was great, but we also got to catch up wit our FAVORITE, Liz, and I found William, a server from one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia was now working at Ruth Chris. It was good to connect, and of course receive great service, food and camaraderie with our friends.

Seriously, we will be back in February and can’t wait to see how new friends and old are doing well!

This is a place to go for special occasions. It is very pricey. I worked here for years, and I met my husband here. We have lots of memories every time we eat here. However, it is very expensive, about 60 to 80 dollars per person, and more with drinks. Great place for business meetings. However, the food is excellent and very filling. The food is also rich.

The waiter came over about 3 times, he looked extremely miserable. We were here for my husbands 30th birthday. There was a table of 12 right next to our table of 2, they were extremely loud ... but the food was amazing !

Our service was phenomenal. I am used to the old location on Broad Street that had the ambiance of a steakhouse. This location has more modern decor, bright and clean. Start with ahi tuna and avocado crab appetizer. It was so fresh and light, a delight to the pallet. Something I would consider ordering for dinner, the next time. I had the Chilean sea bass, cooked perfectly moist and flaky. I paired perfectly with a glass of crisp pinot grigio. My family all had the filet, prime rib and cowboy steak all are delicious. The side dishes were potatoes au gratin, mushrooms, and asparagus. These side dishes were smaller than some other steakhouse we had been to. The desserts were a chocolate duo and creme brulee. (The kids didn't want any.) Dessert was rich, much too sweet for my taste. It was a pleasant dining experience for my birthday.

When the customer provides the tools needed to make the dinning experience the best it can be..and those options are either not presented to the chef or the Chef is way to egotistical to take those options..we are presented with what happened Saturday 10-19-19 @6pm to be exact.

We order a bottle of wine..the wonderful waitress Whom was extremely detail oriented & ultimately very apologetic, told us the specials, we then order some Calamari in a sweet sauce almost like Chinese duck sauce with a twang..these were very good but we had our eyes on the prize.... a steak !!
Her's, a Petite Filet med rare, asparagus & brown rice with crab meat sides
Mine a truffle butter topped regular filet Med well..Here is where I conveyed the options. "please allow the chef to butterfly the meat if its a fat cut to help retain some of the juices" she says "oh our chefs don't really need to they are really good" I say "ok, well the option is there, i will leave it up to the experts" (That was the KIss of death)
Lets cut to the chase ..My steak came out bloody, her steak was perfect I said please eat...
The waitress "OMG I'm so sorry sir " Now did she not tell the kitchen or did the kitchen falter?
either way when the steakcame out the 2nd time it wasn't right & the manager saw it wasn't correct..
Yes the $50 steak was free... but I couldn't enjoy the meal or experience with my date ..
Irritates me to no end.

Service was very slow and waiter was not attentive. Table cloth had wine spill from previous seating and our reservation was for 3 but only 2 place settings were at the table. A good 20 mi. or more min before we were greeted and drink order was placed. Typical when we dine at Ruth Chris the wait staff is very impressive water glasses are refilled timing between order and courses are on point. When you go to a restaurant like this and spend a bit more then usually you want better service

They were out of tuna and my client chose Ruth’s Chris because she enjoys their Tuna salad. And my filet had a large piece of muscle running through it. Not a very good piece of meat. Very unhappy with the meal.

Norman was overwhelmed with too many tables. He was too attentive to the point of being condescending when he saw we weren’t very happy. My husbands meal was delicious. My petit filet was bland and tasteless. No need to go to the one in Chicago.

It’s a lovely experience with friendly service and tasteful surroundings. There is a slight sense of tiredness in the preparation, but the experience outweighs the quality. The price, however, should guarantee a better meal.
