Waitress shook my martini behind me and the top came loose spraying me lightly. She says the bartender will make a new one. The “new one” filled the martini glass only 1/2 way. Porterhouse for two was to be medium rare. It was medium, not medium rare. We have had better dinners at other Ruth Chris locations.

The restaurant lacks atmosphere. The “booth” we were seated in was shot . When I sat down it sunk in like a hole . I expect more when I’m paying $68.00 for a steak . I also expect for my steak to be cooked per my request. I asked for “ medium rare “ I got “ rare “ . I showed my waiter and he agreed. He asked if I wanted to speak with the manager . I told him “ no just box it up “ . I didn’t feel like going through the process of complaining. I didn’t come for a free meal . I came for a exceptional meal . I didn’t get one at all . To be clear , the waiter was very good and professional. I will never go to Ruth’s Chris again. I have dined at the Norfolk Virginia location several times and it was average. I spent 270.00 including the tip . A couple of days earlier I dined at the original Morton’s steak house. It was the best steak I have ever had in my life . The service was great as was the atmosphere. It cost me and my wife $300.00 and was awesome. What I call a memorable meal .
I think Ruth’s Chris has spread itself too thin thus watering down the brand . I hope this helps those who are considering dining in downtown Chicago. Or elsewhere for that matter.

The appetizers and portions of the main courses were what you would expect at one of the best steak houses in the world. I have been to a dozen Ruth's Chris globally and I am never disappointed as the consistency is always there. I was a little surprised that there were only a few tables being served but the meal was a thumbs up!

The food was exceptional! Love the sizzling plates to keep the food hot while you eat. We ordered the brussel sprouts, jalapeño corn and lobster Mac n Cheese for sides. All were delicious. The service was spot on. Food came out in a timely manner. All in all it was a great night of food and company. Will definitely return again.

We celebrated Father’s Day last night and had a lovely evening. We were well attended to. We ordered calamari and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers and the food came out in 10 minutes and was delicious. For entree my father and I shared the tomahawk ribeye cooked medium plus so my portion was med rare like I like but my fathers piece was more well done like he prefers. My son ordered the cowboy ribeye which he enjoyed. We also had the grilled asparagus which was perfect and the brussel sprouts were fantastic as well. The lobster Mac and cheese was okay they just put a heap of lobster on top of their regular Mac and cheese dish so it doesn’t taste like a part of the dish.

Was seated by the bar and dining room where everyone comes together to order drinks, bus tables, etc. Very noisy. Restaurant staff gather in these areas and I heard a lot of personal conversations. Not a quiet dinner.

Always love Ruth Chris but this time was not up to par. My wife and I ordered the exact same steak and you would think they would serve the exact same cuts of steak but not so. My wife's came out perfect, thick and beautiful. Mine was thin, like a 1/2 in, and not done as it should have been. Strange they would serve the same table two different cuts of the same steak. The service was good at the beginning but trailed off as the end of the meal approached and almost disappeared before the bill.

Really going down hill. the decor is wearing out. I was given a choice of very dull steak knives(to go with a bone in filet). Food was fine, but nothing great. Service was mediocre at best. They really need to work on training. They have freindly staff, just not 5 star quality training. When you spend over $700 on dinner for 4 you would expect it to be better. This is the 2nd time in a row R'sC has let me down, I have always been a big fan, but I won't be back anytime soon.

Wow... Our ribeye was tough to cut into. With a $60 price tag, I would have expected something a little better. The salads were good. We each got our own salad, split the ribeye, and got a side. That was more than enough. Overall, it was a fine experience, but it was too expensive to justify going back again. I repeat, I will not be going back again. Plenty of other great spots you can eat for MUCH less.

The staff was super friendly and helpful. The food was top notch. The lobster bisque was delicious and the ribeye and creamed spinach were also delicious. I appreciate on the menu it disclosed or highlighted the corn fed steak. The rest I give a pass to since it was a special occasion and my boss was treating me (not sure if sauces had cornstarch, but the bread probably had cornmeal on the crust). We had an early lunch, so it was more quiet than a later lunch or dinner, which was nice. First time was a charm.
