It’s was great as usual except for the bartender “Troy” he could be a little more welcoming and friendly. We sat at the bar and unfortunately he made our experience a little uncomfortable.

Well...not what I expected from Ruth’s Chris. The night started out ok. Good cocktails and bread. Lobster bisque came out and was COLD and where is “sherry” and more importantly...where is the LOBSTER? There were a few little pieces in there. Nothing substantial. When the salads and bisque arrived, no one offered us fresh cracked pepper.

Ok, so then our drinks were empty and sat empty for 20 minutes or more.

Food was good. Not great. Just good. Service was horrid.

Meh.

We got a gift card fire Christmas so we were anxious to check it out. The service and atmosphere was great, but the food was just mediocre and overpriced. Capital Grill will remain our go to.

Way too expensive for the quality of food you receive. Also the service was very slow and the man who brought out our food was very blunt and rude. Not worth the $200 we spent for some very mediocre food and poor service.

Very disappointed. I have been a Ruth’s religious fan for 30+ years. My kids even grew up going there. Very sad about where the food quality and service have gone. Not the Ruth’s I knew. Food orders were wrong, quality was poor for cost, experience was TGIFridays like.

Ordered cowboy ribeye and initially overcooked, order medium rare and came nearly well done. Believe that the timing was off since the server brought steaks early during appetizer/salads and took them back. Came back sometime later and they were over cooked. Manager came an delivered properly cooked steak. We understand sometime things happen so it was nice that they owned up to it and we appreciated that. The food over all was very good. What you would expect from a high end steakhouse.

The food was amazing, probably the best meal I’ve had at any steakhouse in the Cincy area and the only time I can recall that I completely cleaned my plate. That being said, I was a little disturbed by the two giant fruit flies on the wall by our table. Our server was also lackluster, could have been a bit more attentive to refills and we had to wait quite a while to place our dinner order.

The ambiance was good.. The table we had for 4 people was really tight.. and they serve you on multiple plates and it made it really hard for all 4 of us to maneuver.. Our server was very nice and attentive and knowledgeable.. the steak was awesome but for as expensive as this restaurant is, they could do better on the taste of their side dishes.

Amazing service and food. Due to having a larger party (6 people) we had two waiters helping us that evening. They were on top of everything. As usual the food was very good and the restaurant even provided a complimentary birthday dessert to our birthday guest which was a very nice surprise. We will continue to return to this Ruth Chris location.

We had dinner at Ruth Chris to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The service provided by our waitress Carmen was amazing. While the service was top notch it did not make up for the huge disappointment about the food. This was our first time at Ruth Chris and our expectations were high; especially for the prices they charge. Drinks are VERY overpriced and while my sea bass was decent, my husband couldn’t even eat his steak because it was so salty and tough (and steak is their specialty?). So much for treating him to a special dinner. He even said on the way out “it’s one of the worst steaks I’ve ever had”. So disappointing for me who really wanted it to be a special night for him. My suggestion, if you want a great meal, make a reservation somewhere else.
