The food and service was once again outstanding. Our filets were cooked perfect and the mushrooms were the best I've had in a while. My only negative thought was when we went to pay our check I was not allowed to use my OpenTable rewards card. I think it was more an issue of the manager just did not want to fool with it but it ticked me off a bit.

Everything was wonderful, did wait a little long for a table even after I made the reservations hours ahead of time but, it was all worth it

Scaled down dining room to 39% which made it seem a bit gloomy but service and good made up for it! Always a treat there

We went for my moms 70th Birthday and when I made the reservation on the website it had a special offer but we weren’t given the offer at the restaurant when we arrived. They said it didn’t apply to us. The manager was rude and and doesn’t know how to treat good paying customers. She needs a lesson in people skills.

Celebrated my Finance' 50th birthday and she ordered the filet steak. Ordered it well done. When it arrived at the table it was not cooked properly. Sent back to kitchen and when returned it was still not well done. It took a total of three times to get the steak cooked as asked. This disrupted the meal because we could not enjoy our dinner together.

Dress code out the window! Fat women running around in short shorts. Men in work boots, blue jeans and T-shirts.

Way overpriced for the value. Food presentation was underwhelming. Basically a piece of black meat on a plate. My broccoli was undercooked. Salad and sweet potato casserole were ok. The waiter did a good job.

I’ve had better meals at any number of steak restaurants for 25% of the price.

It’s the best ribeye around and it should be for $57. My wife and I split a steak and two sides and we walk out stuffed. We’ve celebrated our children’s 18th birthday here.

Ruth's Chris has been my favorite restaurant for many years. This was my first time visiting the Birmingham location. I must say that I was a little disappointed that it did not hold up to the fine dining experience I am accustom to at Ruth's Chris. Prior to this visit, I last visited the Baton Rouge location which was superb. Birmingham should focus more on training their staff to enhance the fine dining experience and maybe moving to a new location. As a whole, it would be great if they offered a grass fed steak or wagyu beef.

Wife and I ordered the same steak, both cooked med. Her’s was fine. Mine was 50-75% fat and griddle. Definitely not a $57 steak. Never had this problem with RC.
