    The kitchen had an order mixup and it took an hour to be served. Manager explained, apologized and comped us for the dinner. Mitigated a bad experience. Unfortunate episode but glad Ruth C’s made it right. Thanks to Manager!!

    Steaks were overcooked, 1 had to be sent back. Both were not cooked to order. Filets were gristly. It was our wedding anniversary and very disappointing. Service was adequate, but not attentive. Restaurant did make it right and did not charge for dinners, only drinks and appetizer charged on bill. We will not go back.

    I've been going to Ruth Chris for 22 years and have had better experiences. I'm assuming the server was new and having a very difficult time. Our family of six had reservations to celebrate their father's (my husband's) birthday. The positives: The ambience was wonderful along with the beautiful sunset. The seafood tower and tuna appetizers were wonderful and the wedge salads were good. My daughter did not receive her Brussels that she wanted for her appetizer until the main meal. We arrived at 6:35 for 6:45 reservation and they seated us about 6:52 p.m. It was long meal not leaving until 920 p.m. My three sons' steaks were incorrect: blue cheese not ordered, cowboy mistaken, etc .. So they took everyone's steaks back but mine. Therefore when they brought everyone else's steaks, mine had gotten cold (I misunderstood her when she said she would bring me another steak and that was not our server that was someone else that had brought the food to us). I've had the mashed potatoes before and today they were the worst mashed potatoes I think I've ever had. They did comp my steak and took off a couple of appetizers and gave us desserts. The manager spoke to the table next to us because it was also his birthday dinner and they still hadn't received food by the time we left. The manager came to our table early on, therefore we did get to speak to him about all the issues.

    We went for a nice dinner and made note of the dress code displayed at the checkin desk as we entered. I saw countless patrons of the restaurant with midriff tops, athletic shorts, tennis shoes, and ball caps. Not only was the dress code blatantly ignored but Unfortunately, this seems to be the norm in the majority of our nicer restaurants in town We decided to sit in the bar near the windows so we would have a beautiful view. Again, all I saw eating out on the patio were couples with t shirts and shorts. Our meal was unmemorable and upwards of $400 for dinner and drinks I probably won’t come back unless things change dramatically

    The food was fair. My boyfriend loved his steak & my daughter loved her shrimp. The mac&cheese was bland with the lobster on top, in my experience it would had been better if it was made in it. The crab cakes were alright as well.

    Did not feel it was up to normal visit. Love the place but my dad had a rather tough steak. Nobody even asked. My steak was ordered MR and was a medium. It was too busy. I understand it was a special day but feel food and service did not hit the normal marks. Pulled up to valet and nobody even came to my door so I dropped off parents and parked. Had a reservation for 7:15 but waited 30 minutes to be sat. Food was just average that night. Bummer

    Last night was a different Ruth Chris than what we are use to. We had to ask for bread with our meal, my husband was served cold coffee, while taking our order our server stopped in the middle and had some conversation with another table…it just went on and on. Our steaks were delicious. However my grandson ordered his steak medium and there was not a trace of pink anywhere. Almost well done. He didn’t say anything so we didn’t either. I was told you are having some turnover and training problems right now. The next time I make a reservation I will only come if Christopher can serve us. We are use to Christopher and he makes Ruth Chris truly a fine dining experience. Last night was nothing special. It should have been.

    Unfortunately our worst Ruth’s Chris experience. Were there for a birthday which the hostess and whoever decorated the table known. Server (Dalton) did not. He was distracted all night. 3 or 4 steaks ordered with pink centers came with very hard charred areas that we could not cut. When he asked about dessert the birthday boy was not sure, server comes back with the check and said for us to enjoy our night. I asked if they did birthday things still and he said yes and stood there. I asked if he could bring it out and he grudgingly said yes. The table next to us was a birthday and their server brought it out unannounced, had them pose for pictures, etc. finally there was a party of 7-8 guys celebrating a birthday and several times very loudly dropping the Bonn and no staff would say anything to them. They were 30-40 feet from us and it was like they were right next to us. Very disappointing overall, this has been our birthday tradition, may have to look elsewhere.

    Service was great. Food just so so. One our filets appeared to be the tail piece of the tenderloin. Sides came out lukewarm and when fresh sides brought out, the creamed spinach was so liquid-y that it was more like soup. Ladies bathroom in need of maintenance (doors of wash stand cabinet off hinges) and in need of clean up with water everywhere and paper hand towels spilled over counter.

    Our food came out before our salads. They realized, took our food back and clearly put it under a heater- it was basically cold when it got served again. None of the sides were warm either. It was not a good birthday experience. We were very disappointed.

    Our server was Thomas. He came across condescending and belittling when asked a question. I have been there multiple times and never greeted with that type of attitude. I brought my daughter there for her 19th birthday and I had to remind Thomas…again belittled. There was also no confetti on the table so he brought out “congratulations” confetti. I understand if you all may have been out but the proper greeting initially to my daughter should have still been given on her birthday.

    Cooking steak should be their expertise; my wife and I ordered the same steak at medium-rare. One was rare; the other medium. Our au gratin potatoes were undercooked. Overall, service was good, food tasted good but just a little more attention to detail would have enhanced the meal.

    I took my family out for a special celebratory dinner.  Our server was courteous and exceptional.  The food was below average.  Our steaks came out well done when we ordered medium rare.  I am not a complainer and am not the type to make a scene and send food back. The service, ambiance, view and atmosphere were what we were looking for., unfortunately, our culinary experience was so poor not sure we'll return.

    The atmosphere was fine, very quiet and relaxing. The steak was sizzling hot, but I ordered a medium and my steak was more medium-well. It was still very good. We asked for bread, and 2 other tables, that were seated after we arrived, got bread before we did. Our server, Spencer, was attentive enough and checked on us appropriately.

    Started out getting seated 15 minutes after our reservation time. Then we were there for 3 hour. Not because we wanted to be there as we asked for our checked when the desserts were delivered. Let’s talk about the food. Every steak at our table was over cooked. Had one ordered medium and 3 ordered medium rare and not 1 of them had any pink in them. How can you be a steak house and not be able to cook a steak to the right temperature. Ordered the bbq shrimp for the appetizer and the sauce was watery and tasteless. This was a disappointment as we have had this in the past and it was delicious but not tonight. For dessert we could not get the cream brûlée because they did not have a torch to finish the sugar topping. This is weird since Home Depot is just down the street. So this is 2 times in the last 6 months that we have gone here to have a poor experience. Ruth Chris was our go to celebration spot but we are really rethinking that for the future.
