    Our experience: The food was excellent. Our server was excellent. The wine steward, on the other hand, was too chatty, and came back to discuss wine and food too often, while we were in deep discussion and enjoying our meal.

    Excellent experience. Started with valet parking, professional greeting, and though early, we were promptly seated. Decor was rich, and comfortable. Our server Kaylee was perfect. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and paired our wine perfectly with our meal. The food was as advertised. No complaints. Kaylee was attentive without interrupting, or being annoying. Top marks. Though an expensive evening, it was an excellent evening.

    First time we came here in November was the best experience we ever had a restaurant. Last night was not that. Our service was slow, we felt profiled, and the moscato was gone. Our porterhouse was fattier than it was the last time. Just upsetting after having a great first experience.

    The service was quick. We arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. Our menus were two different menus (they had just updated their menu) so prices and options weren’t accurate on my husband’s menu. We were using a gift card my mother gave us for the holidays and she had asked about vegetarian options before purchasing it since I’m a vegetarian. Unfortunately, they’ve updated their menu and no longer have the vegetarian option (although it’s listed online and on one of the two menus we had). My only options were sides, which I had the asparagus (woody and soggy at the same time), sweet potato casserole (which was excellent) and hash browns (which were hard and greasy). My husband had the salmon which he said was the second best salmon he’s eaten this week, and he’s only eaten salmon twice. The food wasn’t bad, it was just mediocre. I still have money on the gift card and I don’t plan to go back. I will send a shout out to our server. She was quick with filling up our drinks and very attentive. She was excellent at her job and made us feel like the only customers she had, even though she had a lot of other tables. While the food was mediocre, the service was spectacular.

    It was not the same ambience from other Ruth’s Chris. Felt rushed, waitress was young and hyper. It was loud and tables too close. Would try it again. Steak made up the difference from the entire experience. Steak was amazing.

    The steaks are amazing. The garlic mashed potatoes are a must. Wish they had a little bit bigger variety of beers, but they do have a ton of wines. Service is always spot on. Definitely recommend. It is expensive! Be prepared.

    My wife and I truly enjoyed a valentine day lunch at Ruth’s. Service was excellent, one of our steaks was undercooked & it was immediately corrected and served cooked to perfection. Would have given 5 stars but it’s not ideal eating alone while your spouses meal is being re-fired. The Prix Fixe lunch has great options at great prices.

    I have been to other Ruth’s Chris around the country and was always very impressed with their service and quality of food. So, I was excited to hear they a Ruth’s Chris was opening in the Des Moines area. My wife and I decided to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary, but were very disappointed in the service. To start with, we ordered cocktails and after a very long wait, we received the wrong drinks. It took awhile to get our server’s attention and then even longer to get the right drinks. I ordered Lobster Bisque and after a significant period of time, our server came by and asked if it had been served yet. After saying no, she went off to check and it showed up a little while later, Luke warm. The food (Bone in New York and Petite Filet steaks) was as good as I remember it at other locations. The food is very good but the service had something to be desired.

    I made a reservation online. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the items on the menu. There is some sticker shock when looking at prices. However, the food was excellent including dessert. The only 2 questionable items we had was the burger plate my dad ordered. The cheese was not complimentary to the meat and the homemade chips were odd and felt out of character for such a nice establishment. The sweet potato casserole is a must try. I don't even like sweet potatoes, but my dad raved so much about them I had to take a bite. They were really good. So good, the waiter said some people get them for dessert with a scoop of ice cream.

    Unfortunately our service was not the best. The food took an hour and was barely warm when served. One of our parties steak was beyond well done. They did remove the steak from the bill & bring her a new steak to take home, since we had waited so long. I know Saturday nights are busy, however, I also know our food sat for a while based on serving temp.
