When you go ask for Amy from Rockland for your sever. She knows what she is doing and will take care of you. The food is excellent, try the hashbrown it is crazy good. The meals will come out cooked correctly and HOT, it really is a nice place to have a quiet upscale experience with your special someone.

I have been several other Ruth Chris’ restaurants. This was the first time that we did have.a primary server. We were taken care of by who ever walked by. Our order was wrong. I ordered sparkling water and it never arrived. I ordered a drink and was never asked if I would like another beverage. We finished our meal and it took the server twenty minutes to clear up the plates only after I inquired. I love the franchise but so think that this type of restaurant demands better service.

Hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Great place. Nice setting. A bit dark. It would have been nice to have a candle in the patio table but not a big deal.
Bit pricey but food worth it.
Will try again.

Service was way off tonight, 730 reservations on a Sunday. First times in years I had my steak delivered before I was finished with my salad. Bad play. You pay 240 bucks for a fine meal you want fine service. Their excuse? Covid, no servers. Bad form, Peter.

A disappointing experience. For a $250.00 dinner for two--with no alcohol--the meal was mediocre at best. One NY Strip steak ordered medium-well was bloody. The Garlic Mashed Potatoes barely hinted at garlic. No silverware was on the table for one person and had to be requested.

I love dining at Ruth’s. Always get the best meal😋
I tried the barbecue shrimp appetizer and it was delicious. Sat in the bar, not a fan of the new decor, I think when you have a building with such history of that it was a lot more welcoming warmer when you had more of the library five then the more modern cold feel that it is now. But that didn’t take away from such a delicious meal that we had

For the price, it wasn’t what I expected. The meat was dry and not flavorful. I was recommended, but it didn’t meet my expectations. Can’t not be compared to Capital Grille or Abe & Louie’s.

We enjoyed our anniversary at Ruth's Chris. The restaurant is located in an historic building so the ambiance is quite nice.

Our server was Tabitha and she was excellent, just the right balance of attentive and leaving us to enjoy the meal.

The food was excellent - we started with BBQ Shrimp and they were cooked perfectly - the sauce was tasty and the shrimp had that great "snap". My petite fillet and hubby's NY strip were perfectly medium rare+ and delicious, garlic mashed and drilled asparagus were a great match to the steaks.

As an anniversary gift, we were able to choose a dessert to share, which was a nice touch and a lovely way to end the meal.

We will be back to Ruth's Chris.

Overall it was what we expected for a Ruth's Chris. Great steak and wine. Great services and a complimentary cheesecake for two as we celebrated our anniversary. If there was one thing to improve on, I would skip the hash brown potatoes, but my wife liked them a lot. It's a specialty for this location only. The wine list seemed a little condensed, but I'm not sure if that's a product of the pandemic or typical of this chain. Overall, I can't complain as they had our favorite Duckhorn Merlot. We'll be back!

They sat us in a room with 3 tables in it. Was very odd and slightly uncomfortable. Not sure why we had to sit in that room. Food was great, service was fine.

Every year my wife and I go to Ruth's Chris for our anniversary, and our 9th was a great example of why we do that. They made it so special, from table decorations, to verbal congratuations, even a customer dessert, from our server Anne to all the staff, great service, food, ambience....top notch! Thank you, and see you next year (if not before!)

Everything was great except for fellow diners at two different tables who dressed for this upscale restaurant no differently than anyone eating at a mall food court. I guess that’s not the fault of the restaurant but still had an effect on our experience.

Once again, had the wonderful opportunity to dine at this restaurant. The only critical comment, as far as the side's ordered, and specifically in reference to the sweet potato casserole, the portion was much less than over 2 years ago. For the price you pay, this was a disappointing value. The baked potato also could have been cooked a little longer but was still good. Brought most of the baked potato home and cooked it further and was enjoyed.

I had the Surf & Turf. The lobster was over cooked and dry. The steak was cooked properly. Both items were overly salted to the point they were inedible. The bread pudding could have been used as a hockey puck. The Caymus wine was wonderful.

SO DISAPPOINTED!! Was soo looking forward to dining at the old City Hall. Made reservations 2 weeks in advance, arrived on time, and were dressed up. The men in our party were wearing suit jackets. We were seated in a lower level dining room. Should have asked to sit in the main dining room but was not aware of the difference. Should have been given the choice to wait for the main dining room. The food was good but very expensive. IF YOU GO DEFINITELY ASK FOR THE MAIN DINING ROOM!

We had a fantastic experience here after having a terrible one at the Ft Lauderdale Ruth’s Chris a few months back! The hostess was lovely upon arrival and surprised my daughter when she sat down with Congrats confetti on the table- I had wrote on the reservation we were celebrating her HS graduation- this gesture thrilled her! Service by our waitress Nina was spectacular! She was attentive and just fantastic as were her assistants. Appetizers of calamari and crab cakes were quick and delicious and our party got filets & shrimp, ribeyes and sides of mac and cheese and creamed spinach- all hot and cooked perfectly. We were seated in a smaller room which was nice to have conversation- the evening ended with Nina picking out a special dessert and Congratulations Grad written on our daughter’s plate! This is how fine dining should be:)
