Overall still a great ambiance. Wait time for food was too long as well as the food wasn't as tasty as it has been in the past.

Always been a fan of RC. It was loud, food was cold, service was slow because it seemed understaffed. Our sever was doing as good as he could. Won’t go back.

I was really excited to try Ruth Chris…our waiter Zuri was amazing. But thats pretty much it. There were so many fruit flies that we were moved to a different section. The host were rude and NOT warm. Definitely not a fine dining experience.

Where do I began. Huge disappointment and we will never visit here again. My husband and I each ordered the Cowboy ribeye steak. Mine was med rare and his medium. The steak came out very dry and very fibrous. I was shocked because mine was med rare. And to be honest we’d cooked better ribeyes ourselves at home. The sides were the garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Utterly disgusting. The mashed potatoes were gritty, lacked any creaminess from added cream, butter or sour cream. We couldn’t even finish it. The asparagus was unbelievably burnt. Like not charred like when a seasoned chef prepares it but burnt. Each asparagus was completely burnt all the way on each side. Hence making them dry and unbearable. They were served with hollandaise sauce on the side, but who wants to “dip” asparagus like French fries while eating a steak dinner? A wreck. When we ordered our entrees, we ordered 2 glasses of wine which we requested to be brought out with our steaks. Our waiter forgot. And came to our table with the COLD glasses of red wine 20 mins after we received our steaks!! Yup the wine was cold as if the bottle came right out of the fridge! I swear. We asked another nearby server about the wine temp and he said it’s the way they serve it there……..cold. Huh?? Whoever is in charge shouldn’t be. We just wasted $300 of our hard earned money on dry steak, gritty mashed potatoes, burnt asparagus and COLD red wine!! This is so unfair. And to think my husband did some overtime to cover the cost to eat here for our 20th anniversary. Awful.

Ruth Chris is always a fantastic option for steak, and today was no exception. While our steaks were slightly overcooked (the scorching plates were undoubtedly responsible) the flavor and sides were immaculate. Our server (Vernon) was extremely attentive without being overbearing and just added to what was a wonderful evening.

What I will say first and foremost is... immediately Me and my fiancé walked in and noticed that they were deliberately sitting the African American folks toward the back dining area. Their were plenty of Caucasian people seated in the front but none where we were. It was so blatant! I couldn’t believe it. I love my people so that’s ok! But that was the first strike. The Second strike was the food. Now this was my first time dining there and I had heard nothing but great things about the place and food so you can imagine that I was looking forward to it. Well... I was highly disappointed to say the least. I had better food at Friday’s. Honestly. I wanted it to be a great first experience but it just wasn’t!

Food was excellent, had the lobster bisque followed by the sea bass. Very good! The service as ok, I feel that the team is understaffed causing them to cover a lot of ground. And seems like the hotel is funneling traffic thru the restaurant, so makes it seems a little busy/crowded thru the bar area. Small outdoor area but inside is more of a vibe. Hopefully they will be able to staff up for the summer.

Everything was great food was delicious waiter was nice and treated us well. My only complaint was that they added a drink that we didn’t order that was $15 and we didn’t notice until we were half way home. I guess we should have paid closer attention to the bill.

So I eat out every night of the week due to my travel job to frame my response. I haven’t eaten at RC for about 20 years because the last time I ate there they served the steak on a hot platter which is great but they didn’t tell me they added oil on the steak on which I burned the heck out of my mouth on first bite. Ok, stupid me. I have been on assignment in Philly for 7 weeks and enjoy lamb chops and have had great ones across the street at Harpers Garden. Harpers though rotates their menu so I thought I would give RC a try. Well, $52 for 3 med sized chops and a $19 add on lobster tail (3 total bites with) was waaaaay over priced especially for the small portions. Then the hot oil, I was ready this time, totally masked the flavor or they just weren’t great chops. Ordered them medium but specified wanted pink not rare red. They were Medium to well done. I will not return ever due to price, portion and quality of flavor and prep. Sorry
