Excellent food and service. They were crowded for a Monday night and food came out a little slow, but overall, still really good.

My wife my wife ordered a (3) course special for $49.99 & I ordered scallops with a lobster tail. The waitress brought bread for us, then my wife's salad & my scallops were brought. I was puzzled why the scallops came early, but it wasn't an issue. My wife finished her salad & I finished my scallops & we waited for the rest of our meal. A waiter came by our table & cleared the empty plates, bread basket & silverware...which seemed odd. Anyway, we waited another 20min before the waitress came back to our table to ask us if we wanted dessert?? We told her out table had been cleared & we hadn't gotten our entrees yet....she said she would expedite the rest of our meal. Another waiter brought out food for us but it wasn't the correct order, so he went back to find our meal. We finally got out entrees....my wife said her filet was good but under cooked a little, the mashed potatoes were cool. My lobster tail was mushy....it was obvious our food had been setting for a while. When we received our bill it was added incorrectly, so we had to send it back & wait for them to figure it out. Overall, we were there over (2) hours from the time we were seated. The food and service were not close to the quality I've experienced at other Ruth's Chris restaurants.....we won't be going back to the Birmingham location again!!

It took the Service Staff approximately 10 minutes or more to bring us a high chair, which I specified when I confirmed the reservation. Otherwise, the service and food were great!

In my opinion $28 for lunch for salmon was too expensive. Plus everything is al a carte. No sides are included. Everything is extra.

We celebrated my wife's birthday along with our daughters and their husbands. I always enjoy the ambiance there and we got a private area for our party. It's a nice change from the very loud noise levels that seem to be the norm in many of today's restaurants.

It's not an inexpensive place but well worth the price for the outstanding food. The wait staff was attentive but never in your face. I highly recommend it for your next special occasion.

The service was excellent!!! Ther cocktails were very good! The food was better than mediocre, but nothing particularly special about it. Ive had more memorable meals as far as the food goes. The atmosphere is ok, but it's not the elegant dining I imagined. Also, the dress code is not followed. I think my husband and I were the only ones not wearing torn jeans or flip flips. As we went for a special occasion, I definitely felt out of place with the overly casual atmosphere. However, again, the service was amazing. Our server was thoughtful, polite, quick, patient, and overall good natured.

I was very pleased with my experience! I've procrastinated this visit for a couple years, but I'm glad I finally made the trip. Obviously Ruth's is famous for their steak, and yes it was amazing. The only rival for this quality steak would be at The Arrington at Pursell farms. (I highly recommend you folks try that place!) The sides were on point, the service was very cordial and the ambiance reminded me of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. The one thing that stood out the most was the Creme Brule!!! I have never had one this good!

Mike D was my waiter. From the moment I was greeted, until I had completed my meal, there was a huge smile on my face. The atmosphere was great and the food delicious. Mike D made me feel like a queen for the day. Thanks so much!

Love Ruth Chris steaks!! Love how ever dish is served piping hot. The fried oysters with sriracha sauce were awesome. Only complaint was the asparagus was over cooked. Au gratin potatoes were so good. Steaks cooked perfectly. Had a very attentive waiter. Can’t wait to return. Love the ambiance- much wuiter than other local steak places!

This was by far one of the best steaks I've ever slipped into my mouth. It was cooked to perfection. Sides were excellent. Wine was great. The flavor, I can't even comment, delicious. This was the first time for my son and I, there will be a second.

We had a great experience at this location. After a long day of traveling with two kids under 6, the staff and food were top notch. We were fortunate to have David as a server and he was exemplary. The GM Cedric was very friendly and checked multiple times to make sure we had a great experience. The food was great and I recommend the off the menu specials. A great experience.

I feel our service could have been friendlier. They were never rude, but also never smiled or made any extra talk. Seemed very non/reactive and blah.

It was a Thursday night. There were four persons in our party. Each one had a significant problem with their entrees. One, the 11oz fillet was charred so much it was hard to cut and impossible to chew. They took it back and gave them another which was greatly better. Two, the tomato mozzarella salad with basil had strips of spinach instead of basil and the tomatoes were not good. They sent it back and did not want another. Three, the seared ahi tuna had old bay seasoning applied liberally. They sent it back and did not want to try again. Four, the dessert for the inclusive menu was never received.
The manager sincerely apologized and gave each of us free the dessert of our choice and we were only charged for what we ate. We have been going to this Ruth's Chris in Birmingham since it opened and have thoroughly enjoyed each dining experience so our only guess was that the regular kitchen staff was off that night. Our waiter was fabulous and he and the other wait staff were very attentive.
We will certainly go back but not on a Thursday night.
