I don’t know what the issue was tonight

We normally have great service here, and will be coming back most assuredly

I don’t mind leisurely dining, but when the dinner plates were cleared and the dessert menus were dropped off, we didn’t see our waiter again for 19 minutes, I only know the time because I requested my car via text

The plan was for me to order my desert to go, and for them to stay in enjoy their dessert and coffee at the restaurant and drive home separately

The valet company called twice saying the car was ready, and we still had not seen the waiter .I checked my phone to see how long it had been since I requested the car

When he finally stoped by, I had to leave, and the family ordered their desserts to go

Not a great ending to a birthday dinner

I met with an old girlfriend for dinner and Ruth’s is one of my top choices for restaurants. Mary always gives top notch service and the food was great, however my drink had barely any alcohol and the lobster tails were too salty which was almost unbearable; Mary was sweet enough to give my friend and I a complimentary dessert which was very sweet! Will always recommend Ruth’s and it’s impeccable service!

We ate at a table in the bar and had a delightful evening. The steaks were (as always) delicious and the service was perfect. My only gripe is the cost, but that was to be expected. Among high end steakhouses, Ruth’s is the best “value for money” because the food, service and atmosphere are spot on.

This is one of my favorite steak houses. The quality of the cuts is always great and I love that they serve it in a very hot plate with butter. The other great thing is that they have the Ruth's classic pre-set menu that is very affordable. The service is exceptional. Location is great too in the middle of downtown in a beautiful old and elegant building (the old City Hall).

Service was way too fast....the main course gets brought in as you are still finishing the salad or the soup. Having the impression that we are in a sophisticated fast food restaurant. When time comes to give the ticket at the table to get the car from valet parking, we are then asked to call the number on the ticket! Then we had over 1/2 hour of wait for the car (for which the charge went up to $21). The administration has to rethink how they are handling customers coming in for a nice leisurely dinner!!!

Very attentive waiter starting out the meal but once it was served, we think our waiter’s shift ended because no one checked up on us and it took a while to get our leftovers packed up and get our check. Other than that- food exceeded our expectations and we’ll definitely be making that a regular date night spot!

Experience started off good- we were seated downstairs in a room that looks like they use it for private parties. Waitress was extremely friendly and attentive to begin with and then a large party was seated and the attention was gone. The table we were seated at was close to another so when the waitstaff was attending to the other table my chair was constantly getting bumped into. Once is an accident - 10 times they just do not care... This is a dining room, not a crowded bar. We were also directly inside the door so people were constantly standing beside my wife to allow others to pass.. The manager must have stood staring in the room 100 times - right in front of me.. The waitstaff topped of my water with tap water - when there was clearly a bottled water on the table. At one point someone took my half full glass of soda and never came back. After 15 minutes I finally flagged down our waitress to get more drinks... After getting the bill another waitress took the folio with our credit card and we waited 20 minutes for it to be processed - Meanwhile the manager keeps looking at our table seemingly trying to will us away so he could seat someone else... I almost called across the room "Get my bill processed and Ill gladly leave, and probably not come back"

Food was excellent, but sadly the service wasn't. At this price point I shouldn't feel ignored, crammed in, or like I was in the way. I have been to several of the other Ruth's Chris restaurants and always had a great experience - this one was a little disapointing

Ruth’s Chris is our favorite restaurant. We live in Iowa so we can only go to your steakhouse when we travel which is fairly regularly. This is our first poor experience in any of your restaurants. It started when we were seated. Our table was not set. No silverware and no glassware. Our server, Ravin, was a sweet girl but she did not service us. She served our salads a few minutes after serving us our martini. We asked for time to sit, talk and enjoy our cocktails. She never did serve water so another server named Kim finally did. Kim said it bothered her that we didn’t have water so she served it to us on her own. Two petite fillets were served but no one ever checked back with us so we could not tell anyone one of the fillets was well done when it was ordered medium. We had to ask for our wine twice and were never offered bread. Eventually we had to ask Kim (not our server) for extra butter for our steaks. Kim was happy to help. Now for the worst part of our visit, when we explained to the front desk that we had subpar service, Victoria backed Ravin and told us Ravin was in training. Samantha apologized and acted in a professional manner. We were originally only upset with our service but in the end, we were more upset with the front desks response. Our final tab was $207 and we left a $13 tip. I wish I would have left nothing now. Jeff and Julie Dunn
