We've eaten here many times and it's always been great. This time was a bit of a letdown compared to other experiences. Service was slow at the beginning, one drink ordered was not brought as ordered and another took three tries because they were out of Bourbons that are typically available. My wife's steak was ordered medium rare and came very well done. She sent it back and after ten minutes, they brought one that was barely cooked at all and still purple. She had to send it back a second time. When it arrived the third time, it was cooked correctly, but everyone else was done eating. At a restaurant that prides itself on service and quality and getting things right, I would have expected them to comp her steak as she got it when everyone else was done eating and it was aggravating to get to that point.

My husband and I have been to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse several times. Since it was raining, we were definitely planning to use valet parking. We had to drive around for 20 minutes to find the valet. I would suggest that if a restaurant is going to call and confirm reservations that they,also, advise patrons how and where to locate the valet.
When we finally arrived inside the restaurant, we were led to a table that was right off of the hostess station. When we objected we were shown another table. Since this was the second time that my husband had this exact experience with this restaurant , we will not return.
The food was very good as was our server; but for $200 plus dollars for dinner and 2 glasses of wine good food is a must but good seating is a necessity.

We got sat at a table where we were virtually alone. Adrian our server was amazing giving us space while taking special care of us. It wasn't only our valentine's dinner it was out last date before we deliver our second child. We drove by another RC location to get to this one and will do it again without a question.

The rib steak and lamb was tough, I was very surprised. Not for those prices.
Waiters should be able to move around the table to serve each patron, not reach over the table.

We went for restaurant week . First of all the fold took forever to come out, then when it came the portion size was so so small. I asked for well done on my steak bit they gave me medium rare. The steak was so so small I was scared if I gave it back I wouldn't be able to eat it cause it might be too over cooked. I really wanted to try their steak it was my first time there and my only time. We spent way to much money and it wasn't worth it. The only thing I like was the sweet potatoe souffle.

I went to the restaurant because I had a $200 gift card. I would say the service was fantastic. All of the food was good. However, I am from Nebraska and I have had better steak for much less money. I think the only reasons I would go to the restaurant would be a special occasion. I personally can't justify spending nearly $200 for 2 people for a single dinner.

We went to Ruth Chris during Restaurant Week 2018. The three course meal did not disappoint.
What we most enjoyed was that the food was served HOT. Vegetable sides are large enough to share. My filet was cooked perfectly. Bread was average. whipped butter had no taste, but my friend thought it was very good. The ambiance is very nice.

Two significant items of disappointment: 1) the steaks were both trimmed poorly, particularly the filet, which was not uniformly shaped around the outside and had more fat and gristle than it should have—a high end steakhouse should do better. 2) our table was tucked in an out-of-the-way corner, which was great for privacy, but it seemed we were mostly forgotten by the wait staff. E.g. We had to ask to have waters refilled, it took forever to get anything.

They were out of our first two wine selections, then in a Steakhouse were out of their signature Tomahawk steak

We were frequently forgotten

I am a regular and this service was incredibly disappointing

I will give Morton’s another shot

Really terrible experience

Salads came so quickly that I remarked to please make sure we our entree does not come out so fast and it arrived while we were eating our salads anyway! Temperature of food was inconsistent - potatoes hot in center but not on outsides of dish - same with creamed spinach, service was inconsistent - took a long time to get a second drink - which they said was because it was being chilled - when it came it was definitely not chilled so I am not sure what I was waiting for, dessert was plopped in front of us, waiter forgot to put things in doggie bag

I left feeling food and experience was nothing special and for the price it should be!

We went there for restaurant week and tried out the menu. It is hard to find parking around the venue, but we parked three blocks away or else you have to use the valet parking. It is good for special occasions but not every day dining because it is very pricey.

My husband and I went for our 42nd anniversary during restaurant week. The restaurant was gorgeous and the service impeccable, however we requested our steaks medium rare but they were completely brown and dry.
Very disappointed in that part of the meal but the extra side I ordered (the sweet potato casserole) was incredible !

We had a simple dinner, cocktails, salads, a porterhouse for 2, au gratin potatoes, and cappuccinos to cap off a wonderfully prepared meal. A top notch performance by the kitchen crew.

Unfotunately, the dining room staff was weak, out of sync, not top notch. Extra placesettings were not removed completely. Only halfway through our salads, our steak arrived. Why the rush? I asked the waitress when she checked in a few minutes later. She offered a cursory apology and then disappeared until we had finished our main courses. We never got the glasses of wine that we wanted with our dinners. My complaint was not acknowledged by a manager. Our table was left cluttered while we finished our coffees. And, as we left, two hosts failed to say good night or thank you.

The quality of the food saved the night! We’ve had nothing but great service at this location in the past, and we hope management takes note and fixes these problems that so devalue an otherwise fine restaurant.

Ruths Chris is one very fine steak house. Attention to details are outstanding. It is a pleasure to dine with a restaurant that welcomes you by name and treated like a member of the family. The best steaks around and the crab tower and tuna appetizers are sensational.

The food was mainly good. Service was good enough. The occasion was New Years Eve. Many patrons were dressed like bums, sweat suits, stretch pants, etc. what happened to “business attire?” People were loud talkers and half the people were on their phones.

Reservation was for 630. We checked in at 613pm and weren’t seated until approximately 715pm. Drinks at our table took over 25-minutes. Appetizers came in normal time, but main course took over 90mins. Our server was incredibly attentive and apologetic. Clearly not her fault. Food hot. Manager avoided all guests and didn’t address complaints. Totally understand it was Christmas. All it would have taken was an acknowledgement by manager.

Considering it was Christmas night and the restaurant was jam packed. The service was very good. This staff could have been relaxing at home, but they kindly chose to work serving others on a major holiday. Many thanks to them!

The food was very good. Fresh, well prepared and served both warm on plate and warmly in service.

The bartenders were hopping and could have done a better job acknowledging those waiting a long time to get a drink while waiting for a delay table seating. But that is my only criticism for the night.

Both the seafood and the steak were perfectly cooked.

Clearly this restaurant knows their business and has it down pat. I venture to say, there's no such thing as an off night here.

Dine with confidence! Enjoy.

On Xmas at 6:10 for a 6:15 reservation and didn’t get seated until almost 7. Appetizers came before our drinks ever arrived and our entrees took over 2 hours to come out after we were seated. Food was prepared well but at that point we were exhausted and ready to go home. Waiter tried his best and it was obvious they were seriously understaffed but management really should have planned better and made amends for the wait, a free drink while we waited for our table or free dessert would have gone a long way. My family and I will never go there for another holiday again.

We enjoyed a family party of 7 at this always consistently good establishment. High ceilings, dark wood decor all backed up by attentive service. Appetizers were interestingly seasoned spiced shrimp, mushroom caps with crab meat, tender calamari. Steaks and filets were served piping hot and cooked exactly to all orders. One caveat is that if you don't like pepper in the rub ask for a substitute. We over-ordered on the sides and some missed out on desserts but everyone from teens to seniors agreed that it was a especially good dinner.
