Steak was completely undercooked. Had to have it sent back twice. By the time it was back the second time, it was inedible. It was burnt, and tasted like burnt oil/butter. We heard waiters fighting about something during our dinner, very unprofessional. Heard a few other staff members talking about the drama as well later on. They were out of a side dish that came with the meal. Server stopped attending to us after we mentioned steak was undercooked the first time. They took it off the bill, but the damage was done. It was a bad experience. There are better steakhouses. I would never waste my time or money going back here.

I have visited quite a few Ruth Chris Steakhouses across the country and this one is the best thus far. Beautiful atmosphere and the staff was wonderful! Lot's of booth seating and the decor is spectacular! I had a small issue with an appetizer being cold, but the Manager fixed it right away. The pre-fix style menu in the back of the menu is a great deal. Thank you for a great meal in Philly!

I’ve been to several Ruth’s Chris in multiple states and this was by far the worst one. The salads were small, the mashed potatoes were barely warm with considerable less butter, and the medium rare steak was over cooked. The table was nice and service was ok.

What a wonderful experience we had. Our waiter CJ was very personable. He was down to earth really nice guy. Couldn’t have done more for us. He had @ least 4 tables that I could see but he was always there when we needed him Food was excellent couldn’t have asked for anything better

Went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I like the idea that they take picture of us and print it out. Except we look ugly in it. Wish they showed us before they printed it. Lifting and angle were bad. They supposed to comp the dessert but they didn’t. Steaks were good as always.

Our waiter was a pleasant man named George. He was exceptional to us. He explained that the plates were extremely hot and that our food would be delicious. He always checked on us and was very kind.
My wife and I loved the meal and the ambiance in the restaurant. We will come back again in a few months for a special date night.
Thank you.

Excellent food as always. We were a party of six and we have been seated at the same spot every time. A lot of hustle and bustle of servers and waiters which makes for a less relaxing but overall ok. Waiter was attentive but Very forgetful. No rush which we appreciate.

I was so looking forward to this. I had not been to Ruth's Chris in years and I could almost taste and feel the steak sizzling in butter. This was NOT my idealized dream. The place was empty our server could not have looked down her nose any more at me if she had been standing on a 10 foot ladder. The food was OK but our servers attention and attitude ruined the experience. So sad.

I love Ruth’s Chris and have always had a wonderful dining experience in every city I have been... except in Philly. The food itself was perfect as usual, but service was terrible. I waited over 20min for a waitress to tend to my table (restaurant was quite empty); I never got a water refill or check in during my lunch; I didn’t get the usual bread basket, and, when my food was served, I asked for it.... but it never came. I never write this kind of review but, here, I feel that the staff at this restaurant needs better training. This is not the experience one expects when forking $40 for a quick lunch.

We hoped for a quiet Sunday night dinner. Instead the room was so loud, we could not hear each other speak in our small booth. Food took too long to arrive. When it arrived, one steak raw. Waiter was too busy with other rowdy guests to attend to us. We have been to many other locations and had wonderful experiences. The manager comp'd our meal, but it is still not a place I would return.

Have been to Ruth's Chris many times, and its really not as I remember it. There are many other steak house options these days that are better. I wish I hadn't gone, and remember why I haven't been back in so long. It was not worth the price.

My fiancé and I had our anniversary dinner at this restaurant and had nothing but rave reviews! The food, from the steak to the sides (creamed spinach some of the best I’ve had), is very flavorful. The staff is skilled and very pleasant. Highly recommend Steve as a waiter if you can sit in his area - he was excellent.

Reasonable service, but waiter at times was nowhere to be found (e.g., we had to ask other wait staff for bread). My steak was just OK and my wife's filet was tough. Brussel sprouts were underdone. Prices are very high for the quality of food.

Ruth Chris used to be a high-end classy dining experience, somewhere special, unfortunately this is no longer the case. The service felt rushed, waiter was hovering all the time, other guests were not dressed appropriately (shorts and t-shirts, baseball caps)…..the food however was good, not exceptional, but good.

The waitstaff was the best. And the food was delicious. Juicy steak and the yummiest fish. We will go again for a special date night soon.

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.
