    Serviced was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Only complaint was that I had asked for my steak to be served blued. Really was not prepared properly. Not a lot of restaurants know how to prepare a blued steak but i would have thought Ruth Chris chefs would. Elmer K. Pierce

    Ruth’s is always a solid go to. Wasn’t bad enough for me not to go back but definitely had a disappointing experience. Our waiter was fantastic. Just the restaurant isn’t what it used to be. Gradually have noticed it but became apparent this time. I hope Ruth’s can restore to the solid go to they used to be. But I’ll still be a customer. At the end of the day, amazing steaks.

    First visit in months due to illness. Overall experience was great, as usual. Service by Mary K outstanding. Steak was superb. Perfectly prepared rib eye. Salad & crimini mushrooms were great. Only disappointing part was the extra blackened shrimp which were minimally seasoned, undercooked, and served room temperature (cold) hence not a 5 star rating, but almost. We miss the original Ruth’s C in New Orleans, but this one is usually excellent in all areas.

    The filet was perfect and cooked exactly as ordered but very expensive. The bread was hot and very good with plenty of soft butter. The fries were cut too large and some were burned.

    Since 12/31/2003 we have at Ruth's Chris Birmingham annually on New Year's Eve unless illness or travel prevents my wife and me from doing so. Last night was wonderful. After a brief wait for "our table" to be cleaned, we dined at Table 63 and once again had Mary K as our server whom we had requested. Everything about the night was perfect. Mary K paced the meal perfectly and as always treated us as if we were dining in her own home. The food was sensational, and we have leftovers to dine on later today. Thanks to the entire staff for helping us bring in 2023 the way we had envisioned.

    The food and ambience was good. Our server was great and took good care of us. My only beef with this place is that it's extremely overpriced and I don't think the portions reflect the amount you pay. We had the seafood tower for two and one cocktail a piece and the total was like $140!!! The meal consisted of two halves of a small lobster, four large prawns, two large Lobster claws and a Tuna Tataki Appetizer. The meal didn't come with a salad but it did come with bread. Everything was fresh and tasted good but I've had a lot nicer seafood dinners for way less than this. If they had added two additional sides or a large salad it would have made more sense.

    We waited for our 4:45 reservation for 30 min, another 30 min before our drinks came, it was a good 15 min before anyone even came to our table. A lot of food was not cooked right and some came out totally wrong. It took 25 min to get our check back, we were there a total of 3 1/2 hours. They did offer a free dessert for all the mess. I don't think this chain would be happy with this type of representation. Also, the floor was so nasty at our table that it got some type of food all over our shoes.

    Ruth Chris restaurant is great! The Embassy Hotel in Birmingham AL it’s located in is not. The restaurant has an odor when you enter, lots of young people coming in & out, partying, saw group of young people twerking in the glass elevator as it went up. Not a nice or safe feeling environment.

    The food and service was really good. However, the location in that Embassy Suites is extremely outdated. I’ve been there many times and it’s way past time to move to a better more classy location. Sorry to have to tell you that but a nice Ruth’s Chris restaurant doesn’t belong in a cheap old hotel venue.

    Our food and drinks were good but our service was not. The place was not that crowded, yet our server was MIA a lot and we felt we were constantly having to track her down. When we did ask for something, we felt like a bother. To spend over $300 for 2 people to eat dinner and then feel like we were being a bother was disappointing.

    We were astonished at the start for how much a glass wine and a cocktail cost at the bar while we waited. A Manhattan made with gross maraschino cherries, should have been Amarena cherries!!! Our order at the table was wrong. The “food runner” was a slacker. We had no steak knives with our steaks. When we asked for them and told her the order was wrong she said she’d be right back with steak knives and the added food. She never returned. In my opinion, never intended to. Food runners are a terrible idea in any restaurant but doubly so at what is suppose to be a high end restaurant. It went down hill from there. Not enough room to explain. Won’t be back, EVER!!!!

    This time around was much better. Megan Crowmell heard about my previous experience and made it right. The gift card I received ironically was received on my daughter's 18th birthday so at short notice, we made a reservation. Everything was accommodated to tee and my daughter had a great ending to a fun filled birthday. Ben was nice and a knowledgeable waiter. He checked on us and kept our glasses full. My steak was good snd cooked correctly. My daughter loved her BBQ shrimp and mashed potatoes. She also loved her birthday dessert. I can tell Ruth's Chris cares about their brand which you don't see often anymore. We will continue being longstanding customers as long as we continue feeling valued.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - BirminghamResponded on December 30, 2022Thank you for the updated review, Ms. Johnson! I am so thrilled to hear that everything went well for your daughter's birthday celebration! It was our pleasure to make sure you were well-taken care of, and I will make sure that Ben receives your praises as well! We look forward to you joining us for the next celebration or family dinner!
