The food was delicious as always but the actual restaurant is in disrepair Cracked tiles and old and grungy grout and the same decor from 1980. The seat in our both was sticky and we had to ask for baby wipes to clean it off. Not very appetizing to look at and it certainly decreases the atmosphere for a lovely dinner.
Disappointed

The food was very good and we were seated very close to reservation time. We were seated in a very nice part of the restaurant. The dress code is not enforced which I did not like.

One of the only restaurants we have been to that has a romantic feel and isn’t too loud. Our server, Morgan, made our visit especially delightful!

I wasn’t aware the establishment closed at 9. The last time I went They closed at 11. My reservation was for 8:45 but there were availabilities for 9pm when I made the reservation so I didn’t think twice. Around 2 pm I received a semi rude call to confirm my reservation and when we arrived at 8:43 we were immediately seated. We were rushed to order even though it was my husbands first time and my waiter advised us that the kitchen would be closing soon. Again, didn’t think anything of it. My side dish was burnt, my husbands food was not cooked as he wanted. The experience was not one I would have expected from Ruth Chris. They may have been busy all day but I just did not feel like the money spent on the meal was justified.

We had the Petite Filet, and it was beyond criticism. We also ordered mixed drinks, and they were well-made.

I’ve tasted a lot of steaks but this restaurant by far has the best and the sides were amazing and had enough to share plus leftovers.

We enjoyed our dinner on Easter Sunday. The steaks were delicious and tender. My son's pork chop was perfect. He waits all year just to get that here. Service was of course, perfect. Everything was better than we could have hoped due to restrictions. We will be back. Love Ruth's Chris!

There is no better steak in the Birmingham area. It is my go to choice for properly done and delicious steaks. We had steaks, lobster tail, shrimp, and chop salad. All were exceptional.

We celebrated my 65th birthday. It was a meal to remember. Service was attentive but not overly intrusive. Meal did not disappoint. A complementary birthday cupcake made the evening even more special.

We will be back.

We chose our hotel to be convenient for a dinner at your restaurant. Ruth’s Chris is not what it use to be. When you are a good steakhouse you should do everything on your menu well. I got the cocktail shrimp and Ahi Tuna as my entree. I’ve had better Ahi Tuna from every other place I’ve ordered it and my jumbo shrimp was over cooked, not soft and buttery like it should have been. It made me glad I didn’t choose the lobster tail- nothing worse then chewy lobster. Husband ordered a shrimp appetizer and filet. He agreed that they were both just “ok”. Nothing worse the price or the accolades Ruth Chris once upheld and were acclaimed for. Suggestion would be to perfect the things on your menu. Do each perfectly, and be consistent in this. Very disappointed in our dinner.

On Saturday night, our service was good and so was the food minus the unseasoned broccoli. Your prices have gone up substantially, not sure if because of the pandemic. A filet used to be in the 30s. Now, it's almost 50. Your sides used to be 7, 8 dollars. Now, they are 10. On my own, I calculated my daughter and myself's meal to be roughly $100. I spent $140 for a filet, shrimp and grits, 1 glass of wine, and 3 sides. Ridiculous. It'll be another few years before I return, if I do decide to do so.

Perfect setting for special occasions. We go to Ruths Chris mostly because it is quiet enough that you can actually have a conversation easily. The garden atmosphere is unequaled anywhere else in Birmingham. Food and service is always top shelf.
