I want to call the manager to speak to him.
It started out for a few reasons.
Finally our waitress , Amy, said we can’t go back to let’s try
To make this a nice Anniversary dinner.

Then the hostess!

I would love a phone call

The steak was fabulous but we were seated at the basement, which was freezing.

The waitress and service were great.

Food was good as always. First time eating in the bar area with the bartender as our waiter also. He was running around like crazy and had a full bar with other tables. He and the other staff still did a good job

Surprised by the quality of the food. Been here many times. The steaks were just not as flavorful. They overcooked two of the steaks we ordered.

The service has degraded as well; you could tell they just didn’t have enough help. The waitress did her best, but they didn’t deliver the food all at once. Some sides sat on the serving tray for a bit before they delivered them.

Disappointing experience.

We have been to R. C. Many many times over the years, over 100.

This was the first time since COVID-19.

The service was noticeably lacking.

I’ll go back & hopefully they will get it together!

The wait time to get the food was ok. However, my husband salmon and casserole were over cooked. If it were not for the meals, my dinning experience would have been great. It’s unfortunate that my waitress went above and beyond to provide us with a great dining experience and her hard work was met with disappointment because of the food..

As always food was up to par….I would even say this was probably one of the hottest and juicer steaks I have ever had. The meal from bread to service was unmatched…..the staff was so accommodating and professional, Susanne allowed our evening run smoothly.

Our server was VERY nice and attentive. I really liked her. The food was amazing as always. I’ve been to this particular Ruth Chris a few times and honestly it’s my favorite one. Wether it’s Restaurant Week or just a celebration dinner Ruth Chris is always my go to for everything. I absolutely love them. At me point the manager walked around and asked each table if we were enjoying ourselves. It’s was just a all around wholesome and great experience. Always❤️

The food was absolutely amazing- everything was cooked perfectly! Drinks were made nicely. The only issue was the lack of staffing. The waitress was given 5-6 tables and on top of that had to bartender for the whole restaurant. She was attentive as she possibly could be, but was definitely overworked.

Once again, a delicious meal from this establishment- another reason to keep coming back!

Always a great time at Ruth's Chris from the minute we walk in the door and are greeted by the friendly staff! We had terrific servers, everything was served well-paced, we never felt rushed. Every meal is top quality and prepared expertly, right down to the sizzling dish for the steak. We were celebrating an anniversary and a complementary dessert was served with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate! It's become our place to go for celebrations!

The food was really good. I initially made reservation for two but needed to change it to 3 and they tried to give me push back. They ended up allowing it but was frustrating to see an empty restaurant when I walked in. The busser kept coming to our table trying to take our meals and plates before we were done. He was definitely over zealous and I appreciated him trying to help. But when someone says no thanks, just let them be. To the point we said no water please, and he still took it upon himself to pour water, into the ginger ale cup smh.

Once again Ruth's Chris knocks it out of the park!

We were two couples and we headed to Ruth's Chris for restaurant week, do not get me wrong the menu for restaurant week looked great but we ended up not ordering from it and we had an amazing meal.

The au gratin potatoes are worth going there alone. :)

Our server she was amazing, Nina. She was great and I want to hire her!

The steak was cooked perfectly - even the César salad was perfect!

Get the au gratin potatoes, in case I did not mention that.

I cannot wait to go back!

Oh and the creame brulee was on point! Get that! Also get the au gratin potatoes.

The food was good but service was not. Not sure if they were under staff but after hostess sat us down, it took the waitress like about 20 mins to acknowledge us. Even the drinks took a while. Waitress rarely came around. Not a big deal but for the price of the restaurant that shouldn’t be acceptable.
