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.

My concern was the restaurant's pricing and billing integrity.

I have sent a private review to the restaurant.

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.
