The service from our server was exceptional. And the food, cocktails, was delicious. However, when we arrived to check in, despite a 9pm reservation and a special birthday note to the restaurant, our table wasn't ready, we were asked to wait and when we finally were escorted to the table by the hostess, it was then she tossed a few birthday confetti on the table in our presence and says Happy birthday to my wife. The entire experience didn't feel special, the restaurant was unprepared to welcome my wife and I and it was a little disappointing as this was our firsy time there. Our waiter was amazing and made us feel a little better but we didn't get a visit from Manager to ask how things we were going either.

The ambiance was really nice,my waitress was Awesome not to mention It was her birthday wkend also, the only thing I had an issue with was the male Waiter coming over and not speaking but standing and looking over my guest shoulders without a word that was creepy/weird he was like the butler from the Adam Sandler movie where he just appeared but a mixture of the Adam's Family where he didn't say anything but stare.. overall food was good pricey but good thumbs up for me!!

Sat outside on a chilly evening, they do not have heat lamps but it was still pleasant. Only one other table outside was occupied. When things get past the pandemic and more people are eating out the ambience score will go up and the noise level should be moderate. All the food as excellent. The best T-bone I have ever had. My companions ate a ribeye and a filet with lobster ail, all excellent. Sides: mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, grilled onions, and broccoli, all excellent. Service as friendly but a tad inattentive; two of us arrived early and had drinks when the third joined us and it ws probably 15 minutes before her rink order was taken. Also, the broccoli arrived about terminates after the rest of the food. This could be somewhat attributable to the COVID situation, every other time I have dined here the service was excellent.

Took my bf to Ruth Chris for his birthday and it was awesome. We go a few times a year and it never disappoints. The tomahawk is a must, it’s the most delicious steak you will ever have, it’s a filet and NY strip combine and 40oz for $105 is a great price. Our server was great, attentive and made the occasion even better. I felt bad for her because she had some rude customers not far from us and they were giving her hell, hope our tip made up for what they didn’t give her. We started with Calamari which is one of the best we’ve had in NE, Wedge Salad was good, tomahawk accompanied with Asparagus, Lobster Mac and loaded baked potato and finished of with Bread pudding. Truly a great experience to end a beautiful weekend. Thank you, we’ll be back on 10/31 for another great experience.

I hate to complain because I’m so thankful when restaurants are even open during this pandemic, so it’s hard to judge them on the normal criteria. It took a long time to get any service at all. We probably waited 15 minutes before anyone took a drink order. They messed up on a side dish we ordered, but overall everything was very good. They asked us if it was a special occasion and although both my husband and I had birthdays coming up within days, it wasn’t technically our celebratory birthday dinner. We laughed and said we both had birthdays the upcoming week and we received a beautiful complimentary chocolate dessert.

Steaks were perfect. Potatoes au gratin were very good but not outstanding. Neither of us cared for the vegetables on the menu. We were looking forward to the corn that we used to get at Ruths Chris. No buggy but worth noting.
Anthony was our wait person and he was super. Everything you would want in a trained professional.

I contacted Ruth's Chris to book a reservation for a medium-size group for a surprise Birthday dinner, and was told we'd have to book multiple tables and would possibly be scattered around the room depending on how busy it was that (Tuesday) night. We arrived and were amazed to see that the host made sure we were able to have our own area in the downstairs section of the restaurant, which was AMAZING! They even decorated the tables with "Happy Birthday" confetti! I appreciated it so much and tipped accordingly!

Food preparation and service were outstanding. I ordered a cocktail and was drinking it slowly and the waitress very nicely came over to inquire if I was not pleased with the beverage and offered me a replacement item at no charge if it was not to my satisfaction. The wait staff, and management are very attentive.

The food was amazing as always. We were under the assumption that it would be restaurant week however it was not. Nina our server was very helpful and informative of the menu options to try and accommodate us since they were not hosting restaurant week at that time. The strawberry Mojito was so delicious. Of course the stuffed chicken was amazing. My family and I enjoy dining here and of course would be back again soon.

The service was excellent so was our waitress...we ordered the porterhouse for 2 for an entree along with some sides. The meat was extremely chewy and their were veins running through a lot of the meat. The waitress took it back and got us a filet to share instead. The manager came over and was great about it.

However when the bill came, we were charged for the porterhouse and not the filet, I was a little confused by that, seeing how we sent back the porter and ate the filet.

The waitress was so good and sweet that I just paid the bill without question, but did think it was odd.

The manager was rude and rushed us because our reservation was at 9pm. If you close at 9pm on sundays why have reservations till 9pm?? Mind you a white couple came in after us and they didn’t get the same treatment. Our waitress was amazing and filled in that void. It was truly sad and appalling to get greeted like that never again, I’ll go to the other location.
