Our experience was a little disappointing actually. I think this particular Ruth’s Chris is way too lax with their dress code. My wife and I like to dress up and eat at nice places and we don’t mind paying $100 a plate for good food and a nice atmosphere.

It ruins the mood and ambiance when the guy sitting at the table across from you is wearing jeans and a t-shirt and his buddy is wearing his favorite sweatshirt. Unfortunately, they weren’t the only ones and we felt over dressed (sport coat, no tie).

We love Ruth’s Chris but I wouldn’t recommend this particular location for special occasions, business meetings, or any other occasion where you’re looking to impress someone. Same great food but lacking the usual class and professionalism of the other Ruth’s Chris’ we’ve visited.

The quality of the food was fine, what you'd expect for a steakhouse in Chicago. But even for a River North steakhouse the prices were high, somehow more expensive than Gibson's or Sullivan's even though this is a chain. But the main complaint was that they were disorganized - had to wait 20 minutes for a table despite having a reservation (that we called to confirm), and they brought the wrong food to our table after ordering. Not something I'd normally complain about but given the price you'd expect these basics to be taken care of

Great dinner, filet was fork tender and amazing. Perfect prelude to going to the Lyric Opera, incidently Rigoletto was even better than our dinner at Ruth's Chris.

I had a great evening with three of my daughters. The food was superb, the service was excellent, the ambience was pleasantly quiet. It’s a little pricey for routine dining, but it’s a great destination restaurant.

I had a lovely dinner here with my son. The steaks we ordered, a cowboy ribeye and a filet, came perfectly prepared. We both ate every bite. We shared the amazing sweet potato casserole. Yum! We also had the brussels sprouts and they were also delicious. They were tiny sprouts and tender with small pieces of bacon and maybe some honey combined for a great side dish. The only downside was the "mocktail" (non-alcoholic), which my son ordered, since it came full of alcohol. Not Good! He is adult but does not drink. My raspberry cosmopolitan was very good. We will go back.

Unfortunately our table wasn't ready when we arrived. Had to stand at the hostess stand while it was set. Then we waited almost 15 minutes to see our server. I had to ask for water during that time. Server was nice but brought out the wrong drink first for my husband. There was a large group sitting next to us which seemed to take up the attention of the servers. Food was excellent but not sure we'd go back after this experience. It was a Sunday after 8:30pm when we were there and we felt like an afterthought.

Our waitor was just okay. He was drinking wine while service us he was at the bar. Our service could have been a whole lot better. Our steak was burn we ask for well done but, not burn so, Martine told us that we shouldn't get off the grill because it would be burn that we should just cook on top so, it wouldn't burn we said ok and it still came to us burn and very dry. I have been come there for several years and never got a waitor who wasn't attentive. Next time, I will ask for Jason and Eric they was great waitors. Martine thought we wasn't gone to give us a tip because I didn't add it with the payment therefore, he came and charge us addition $10 saying he miss charge us and I have to pay on another tranaction. We did leave him a tip in cash. I don't put tips on my credit card. I just thought that he was stealing from me just because I didn't put a tip on my receipt at the time I was paying our dinner bill.

Beverage manager helped with serving and made some great suggestions as to wine and drink choices. She made the difference as far as service was concerned.

Have been to Ruth Chris in Florida a few times and the food, service and ambiance was always excellent. Unfortunately, the quality of our meals were poor and our waiter was not attentive and had no personality. The booth I sat in had broken springs in the seat, my filet was tough and the cost was a bit too expensive. My husband ordered the crab cakes, they were fishy. I wish I had a better report however I would not go back.

It was our anniversary dinner with the entire family, they spread anniversary confetti on the white tablecloth to make it look festive. Our waiter was patient and great fun- offering to take pictures and even brought a special dessert with two plates! The calamari was particularly good and a hefty serving compared to our local Ruth's. All around great experience!

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate my birthday. We were seated in a booth as requested. The lights were dimmed and the setting was very relaxing. The service was great. There was a large party that included a lot of children that came in towards the end of our dining which changed the mood. Overall the food was really good and all came out hot. Our server was great. We will be returning again.

Our experience was horrible. The waiter was horrible the food was horrible. The waiter kept spilling things on me. At the end we never got the dessert we paid for. The food cane out burnt when we ordered medium well. For $560 I expected much better. A manager never came to our table for us to express our concerns. There's extremely to much to type to go into detail about the whole experience. In conclusion I will never eat here again. I wish I could get my money back. A lesson learned for sure.
