OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
4.0  Dined on October 13, 2016

We were really impressed with the service. We were at first concerned that a large group, which was destined for a table set up near ours, was going to overwhelm the two of us with the volume of their celebration. But the manager figured out the problem without us even saying anything, and efficiently went about setting up a different table in another room for them. And when she learned that we were celebrating a birthday, the champagne we had ordered turned out to be on the house. When I asked about the right wine to pair with the steak, the waiter brought us a sample of a zinfandel that was perfect. And the steak was cooked just right -- we usually get stuck with a medium whenever we order medium rare, but not here. The food isn't really nuanced or sophisticated, but that's not what you want in a steakhouse anyway. It was simple, good, fresh, and hearty, and a decent value. This place knows what it's doing.

This is my overall favorite Ruth's Chris location. And as usual, the food and the service were both great. Our server, Jamee, did a fabulous job.

We're always had great experiences here. We go here for special occasions. One of the things we love is the fabulous attentive service, but alas service was AWFUL, insultingly AWFUL. We should have requested a change when we saw one couple looking anxious turned in their seats constantly trying to get the waiter's attention. Instead we sat their while said waiter refused to take our drink order until the whole party arrived. Once they did 15 minutes later he rudely informed us that we would have to wait until everyone knew what they wanted to drink- like we were children- because he would only be making one trip to the bar. REALLY? SERIOUSLY? This is my husband's birthday and you are scolding him for wanting a drink? So we started to ask the bus boys for drinks or would ask him before we were finished because drinks took about 30 minutes. Still we only got 2 or 3 drinks (we usually do 5) I think he went up to all his tables and made us all order at the same time so save him trips to the bar. When coffee was served he left it on a table next to our table for 10 or 15 minutes. He walked away, we finished dessert and then he came back 10 minutes later and poured it. A new couple was seated next to us. 15 minutes later the man stood up and was screaming, like top of his lungs screaming at a manager about the waiter. She offered him wine so maybe he was being scolded and ignored too. It was his anniversary. All IU'm saying is special occasion places need special occasion service. This was not a new server, but there was obviously something not right with him. His attitude, his demeanor, he was sweaty, a little shaky. So I guess i will be rethinking my special occasion restaurant. Also I called in advance to tell them it was my husband's 40th birthday. They offered to put rose petals on the table and give him a free dessert....none of that happened. Instead we were taken through an empty restaurant to a big table and stood there while they set the table in front of us.

As expected, a great evening. I was a little disappointed in the calamari, the Thai sauce was not as flavorful as I recalled from previous dining experiences. The steak was great as were the sides. Always a good place to go for special occasions.

Extraordinary food, steak prepared perfectly, best carpaccio anywhere; but so-so, disappointing service.

My boyfriend and I was there to celebrate our 35th birthday. It was our first experience and our server Joshua made it one we'll never forget. He was very informative of the menuand made really great suggestions . When we forgot to order our appetizer in the beginning he made us feel comfortable with ordering it before desert. We really loved the rose petals on the table We will be back.

The food was very good but our waiter was very slow. He was very friendly. It was my birthday dinner and we told the waiter that. He did say happy birthday but that was it. No free dessert, no singing although I did hear them singing to another table. Would not come back for a special occasion.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ruth's Chris. Everything from entering to leaving was excellent. This was for restaurant week, but we will make sure to come back.

I had to change my reservation time a few hours before we were to be there. Jasmine was absolutely great to deal with. When we arrived, our table was ready for us. No wait at all. Our server was David. He was absolutely fantastic. He had a great knowledge of steak and wine. He made my family feel welcome. I noticed the entire staff being very helpful to anyone who had a need or question. Great place and atmosphere. We will be back again. great job to Jasmine & David.

Servers were pleasant and accommodating. Steaks and salmon were cooked to perfection.
Au-gratin potatoes were not very warm; cheese was added to spinach to accommodate a special request from someone in our party; baked potato was outstanding.
A cocktail was ordered; three bartenders attempted to make the cocktail unknown to them; we greatly appreciated the efforts put into meeting our request and the gracious manner they accepted our decision to send the drink back and order something else from the bar.

We often go to Ruth's Chris for special occasions, and this year my son's 19th birthday fell during restaurant week. We had an incredibly perfect meal of salad, seafood gumbo, filet mignon, creamed spinach (yummy) and the sweet potato dish (more yummy) and a decadent chocolate cake for desert. The food was perfect, and the service was just wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We will be back!

We had reservations for 7:30 but had to wait. Finally, they decided to open the 2nd floor just for us. When we got off the elevator, it was very dark getting to our table. Because our waiter also had customers on the 1st floor, there was no one there for us to call over if we needed something [bread, refill of a drink, etc]. It wasn't the waiters fault.

We went during restaurant week which I know isn't the best way to judge a restaurant. having said that, i still felt that Ruth's Chris could have done a better job. My husband and I both ordered off the restaurant week menu. I ordered the salad and should have asked for the dressing on the side...they completely drenched the salad greens w/dressing making it inedible. I ordered by petite filet cooked medium and my husband ordered his medium rare. The meals came out together and his cut of meat was probably cooked the same as mine but was a nice think filet ..mine looked more like a piece of sirloin ...
We ordered a side of brussel sprouts and they served us asparagus. They quickly adjusted but did also give us the asparagus
Desserts were very good.

Won't be heading back anytime soon was convenient choice for the evening activity that night at Rams Head Live ...might check out the bar before going to the dining room.
