Unfortunately we had a bad night at Ruth's Chris. I got lucky and returned my steak because it was so salty it was basically inedible but the rest in my party were not as fortunate. After dinner they all said they had the same experience, that the food was super salty. We did not get the sides we ordered and had to ask a second time for them and still never got the mushrooms. The waiter made a big display of selling the "off the menu banana cream pie" and then after people ordered it had to return to the table to say they did not have it. I brought a gift card but forgot to use it initially, when I asked if we could correct the transaction and apply the gift card, was told that it was too hard. My wife said that she gets a better steak at Outback Steak House. If everyone had as bad an experience as we did this restaurant would not be open, so I am sure others get edible food and better service but for the 10 of us, it was a rough night at Ruth's Chris.

My husband, my parents, and I went to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were seated in a booth with curtains and fabric seating which gave us great ambiance, privacy and little noise. Every entree from the appetizers to the entrees and dessert was Amazing!

When we got to our booth there was a birthday card for my husband. Our waiter took tons of pictures for us and took a photo for us that they printed out.

My mother in law had chilean sea bass for the first time and it was great. Flaky, tender, buttery and a perfect first experience. My father in law loves his steaks rare, cool center rare and often we go places and its not right. His steak as well as my husbands was Perfect!!! My lamb chops were also amazing.

Great place to spend his birthday and cant wait to go back.

My co-worker and I decided to go back again today for lunch. The food was just as good, if not better and we got a much better server. Quatise was very pleasant and attentive and we hope to be seated with him when we return next time. I think I have just found my new favorite restaurant in the city. Way to go Marsha Brown!!!

We made a last minute birthday reservation for one of our co-workers. We were seated by the fireplace and the table was decorated with a special red sash. The restaurant is so beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. I think our server wasn't feeling well because she was not really all that friendly, but the rest of the staff was very welcoming. We will be returning in the near future with excitement. Thank you for a great dining experience.

Food excellent as always. Waiter so busy fawning over the family behind us we were overlooked. Guessing he was an important person...the chef, manager, waiter all over this family (especially the man).
Kind of disappointing as I have never encountered this at a Ruth Crisp restaurant ever..anywhere.
Still gave a good tip...figured the waiter needed it.

As someone who doesn't generally seek out chain restaurants, I was pleased when a fellow diner requested Ruth's Chris Steak House, as I might not have otherwise dined there, and it was, overall, a tasty, if pricey, experience.

Being on a crab cake kick the past couple of weeks, I had the Crab Cake Sandwich (topped with remoulade sauce and served with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a side of fries). I might've enjoyed a little more spice/salt to the remoulade or the crab cake, but the fries were nicely crisped and seasoned, so eating them together worked. The crab cake itself was also very large and meaty, the tomato thick-cut and fresh, and the bun a delight to eat.

My dining companions both ordered and enjoyed the Mixed Grill (4 oz filet, garlic herb cheese stuffed oven roasted free-range chicken breast, and homemade jumbo lump crab cake) along with a side of mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts.

While the table rolls and butter were nothing special, the service was excellent and the atmosphere sparkled (white table cloths and chandeliers). Would love the choice of sparkling or still water as a table standard.

Tossed me in the bar (why did I bother to make a reservation) where I was flanked by tedious job interview conversations and the irritation of MSNBC on TV. Food was OK but I only noted three pecans in the Black and Bleu salads...and no bread. A decline in standards from their previous location.

It was my husband and I there celebrating our first wedding anniversary and the staff at Ruth’s Chris made it their mission for us to feel like the only people in the place. The staff was so helpful and polite, the food was soooo good, and they covered the table with rose petals!! 10/10 going back one day!

The food was excellent and the Decor was amazing, we sat not too far fire a Fireplace, our booth was made of leather with awesome detailed stitching, the lighting also made Dinning there prefect.

The restaurant was beautiful, huge and very cozy. The staff was so friendly, welcoming, and very professional. The stuffed mushrooms were great because they were the way they were supposed to be; you can taste the crab that they were stuffed with and it wasn't just stuffing. I had the petite Filet Mignon and my husband had the Lamb Chops. Neither were up to the standards that we are used to from Ruth Chris. My husband only ate (1) Lamb Chop and didn't want the other (2), The petite Filet Mignon I ate most of it but it wasn't worth keeping to finish. The mashed potatoes were nice and buttery but could not taste no hint of garlic. Garlic is a strong ingredient so even if it was a hint; you should still be able to detect the flavor. They were lacking the great flavor that Ruth Chris takes pride in. Very disappointing.

I took my wife to Ruth Chris for our anniversary. Although this is a chain restaurant, it is one of our favorites! This was our first time at the Center City location and it was amazing! The ambience was exquisite, the customer service was impeccable, and the food was mouth watering! The host even gave us additional five star restaurant advice as another option. We will most definitely plan to visit this location again in the future!

Food was good and the atmosphere was nice. the manager and front staff were accommodating but the bartender was difficult to communicate with at times and we requested a change to an appetizer that he told us they couldn't do. I asked him to please ask the kitchen since we have done the change before at other Ruths Chris restaurants and he came back in one minute and told us that they could not. One minute after that, the appetizers came - they must have been pre-made and I have to wonder if he even asked. Other than that...it was fine.

Ordered 1 rib eye medium, one Pittsburgh medium and one Filet. What came were 3 medium rib eyes. After waiting 40 minutes for them to come out. No choice but to eat them. Bus boy dropped them off. 10 minutes later waitress comes by and laughs it off and walks away. $250 lunch you kind of expect better.
