Portions were small for such an expensive experience. Parts of the food were either overcooked, undercooked and broccoli was soggy. Got a 22oz steak and half of it was all fat no meat...waste of money. I Had to send sweet potato casserole back. A side order portion for two for $10 was more like one spoonful.

Never had a bad steak at Ruth’s Chris, but petite Filet was tough and grisly. Usually tender from the first bite, this one was disappointing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our (first) dining experiencethere, celebrating a milestone anniversary. I rated it good value because we were able to take advantage of a “Prime Time” special offered from 4-6PM. Our experience included extraordinary hospitality and service as well as well prepared, delicious food. We’re looking forward to another special occasion that will warrant fine dining!

First and last time here as we were disappointed in our experience.
Requested quiet table through Open Table. They tried to seat us just inside a crowded side room where everyone would be passing by our table. Asked for back corner table instead and then had to ask for extra place settings to be removed?
Ordered salads as there was only one non-fish appetizer offered? Salads good but blue cheese on Wedge was lacking some flavor/quality.
Main courses not up to our standards or expectations. I’m not a steak fan but love fish and was disappointed they only offer 2 main options. King salmon was perfectly done but nothing special. Ribeye was cooked to appropriate med-rare but lacked a proper sear to create yummy crust. We are used to well-prepared meat and fish when we dine out (at less expensive restaurants than RK’s!) and at home where we sous vide for great flavor and texture.
Requested baked potato toppings on the side but came drowning in melted butter/oil?, little sour cream, littlebacon and smgreen onions. For $9 should have sent it back but didn’t bother.
Brussel sprouts tasted and smelled strongly of bacon fat or slightly rancid grease and were drowning in mixture. Unappetizing waste of good sprouts.
Complimentary bread VERY good but butter was tasteless. Expected top quality European style or equivalent. Same with butter on potato.
Was celebrating a bday and manager brought a card and $25 GC for future visit. Nice touch, but would have been good to be told about complimentary bday dessert which arrived after we ordered and were sharing a dessert off menu.
Overall cost of mediocre dining experience was over $250 including tip. Fortunately that was somewhat offset by $125 in GC’s from our credit card points.
Hence the ‘first and last time’ remark. StL has a lot better dining experiences to offer.

The waitress was terrible! She was quite rude and literally over charged us $43!! We ordered from the “summer price fix menu” — But when we only ordered one dessert rather than one for each of the four of us, she said she rang it up individually to save us money. We did not ask her to do this and in fact she didn’t save his money she charged us way more by doing it al a cart.The individual pricing clearly cost us $43 more. We tried repeatedly to explain it to her and she just didn’t understand. Since we had another party with us we simply just gave up and paid and will never return to this restaurant again! The food was terrible also — medium rare steaks were cooked beyond well done!

Very unhappy with our evening. Took 45 mins to get our first drink and then water came after that. Second drink not any better. Excuse was “the patio was busy.” Slow to order, slow to get our food..... The server was not very professional but she was nice. Everyone around seemed frustrated with their evening. No interest in going back.

At first the server was great. The appetizer came out and it was fantastic. After that we waited quite a while for our food and had to wait for staff to remove our appetizer plate. Had to ask for another drink. Felt as though we were a burden. Steaks came out and they were just ok. Steaks were not seasoned properly and were not cooked as ordered. Unfortunately we wint never be back and it was our first visit.

Food is incredible. Wait staff... not so much. When we go to a fine restaurant, we expect a lot. We specifically requested a booth, and the hostess tried to put us at a table. I said no thanks, we’ll wait for a booth, and was quickly met by a put out attitude. Twenty minutes later a booth is available and Miss Attitude shows us the way. Hands us off to the wait staff with contempt. Waiter is for the most part cordial, but a putz. After repeating things a few times on the order, I’ve grown frustrated with the whole place. Not sure if we’ll go back. Way too many choices for fine dining...

This is, as always, one of the premiere places in St. Louis to get an outstanding steak, and it's even better during Clayton Restaurant Week with the special deals. You're always going to spend a lot of money here, but it's perfect for special meals and business. I'm still not sold on the 500-degree plates they bring out with the steaks. They warn you, of course, but even an accidental brush against it can leave a welt, as it did for my wife. I just don't get it and don't think it's worth the risk. The steaks are already unbelievably delicious, so I just don't see what the hot plates add, other than danger.

The service alone at Ruth's Chris would be worth a visit. However, having a steak that almost literally melts in your mouth would bring me back in a second. My only "beef" with the place is that some of the items are a little overpriced. $10 for a baked potato seems excessive, but I'm sure that keeps people from coming in and just ordering sides.

For a night out with that special someone, Ruth's Chris is hard to beat. We were treated like royalty from the second we walked in the door, to the moment we left. My wife and I came in for her birthday, and were dressed casually. She was treated as though she was decked out in diamonds and myself in Armani.

Go check this place out for the next date night!
