Terrible service . It took at least 30 min to get a drink and our waitress wasn’t very attentive!
The food was good but not great !
We asked to be seated downstairs and they insisted that we go upstairs. It was cool upstairs and we were literally touching chairs with the next table !
Not a great evening at all !
Our group of 4 was not impressed.

Service started out great but the server did not come by much after the food arrived, desert took much longer than expected and we waited a long time for the bill to arrive. She did not ask about separate checks and just assumed one check which increased payment time even more.

We enjoyed our meal and the setting at Ruth’s Chris. Our server, Kiefer, was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations on food and drinks. He was attentive and quick to get us anything we needed. We will definitely going back!

Ruth used to have the best cheeseburger in town, $11 at happy hour. But this time the quality was just not there. Waiter was slow, but very kind. Server was kind but ended up dropping mayonnaise, nearly ruining a pair of pants.
Even Ruth can have a bad night, will give them one more try do to this being the only bad experience out of several.

We had a reservation but they were running about half an hour behind, so we were asked if we would take a table in the bar area. We were happy to do so to prevent from having to wait 20 minutes or longer.

The Ruth Chris Classic menu item is a great value. I would highly recommend looking at that menu item.

We arrived for our 5p reservation and notified our waitress that we needed to be in and out to make a show at the Aronoff. An hour later, we had no food. We notified the manager who responded “I hope that wasn’t our fault”. We ended up having to leave without any food in order to make our show. Such a shame to go to a three hour show without dinner.

My husband and I went to enjoy an early dinner for Valentine’s Day. We enjoyed Ruth’s classic meal with the filet, shrimp, and sides. We subbed lobster bisque as the starter. The food was delicious, with the filet sliced like butter. The service was excellent. Carmen was friendly and the food was delivered with plenty of time between plates. We had a great time and will return for a future special occasion.

We had never been to a Ruth's Chris Steak House. It met every expectation. The food was amazing, the ambiance super cool. The only complaint was that our seat, near the window on the 2nd floor, was also super cool... as in 10 degrees cooler than the rest of the restaurant... WE kept our scarves on. Otherwise a fantastic evening and dinner for my wife & I to celebrate our Valentines Day engagement.

We went to celebrate our son’s birthday. Service was very slow. Finally placed our orders. NONE of my meal was served with the rest of the table, first my salad comes out, I told the food runner who delivered my salad that my son was supposed to have a salad as well. Not sure what he did with that information because I had to track down our server to find out where the salad was. His response was, it didn’t come out? Well he would have known had he checked on us. My salad was finished by the time my sons Was served. I ordered tuna, when it was served he said here is the tuna...it didn’t look like tuna because it was salmon! Once again I had to track down the server - he checked with the kitchen only to learn they didn’t even have tuna even though it was a special on the menu. The kitchen just substituted salmon..I guess maybe I wasn’t supposed to notice. The manager apologized, brought me something else and comped my meal however by the time it came out everyone else was finished. Then my son asked for the desert menu, the server says I was going to bring you a birthday desert so my son said ok. I had already ordered desert. My sons desert came out, mine didn’t, I asked the server and he made it sound like it was timed on purpose so we could share each desert individually. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? So none of my meal was served or eaten with anyone else. Then to top it off, the birthday desert the server was bringing for my son was on our bill...$6.00. WOW,,,too many great places in Cincinnati to put up with this poor service. Food was fabulous but I’ll go elsewhere next time.

Food was fantastic along with the wine. Service was acceptable but was a bit slow at times. My perception was that our waiter did a very good job but was tasked with to many other tables. He did have lots of help all of whom did a great job. We did receive our check before desert was served. Not used to that. All in all it was a very good experience and would not hesitate going again.

We were seated by a host that was less than enthusiastic about working. Our waitress did not go over the wine list or the specials with us. We realized how poorly she had neglected her job when we overheard another waiter doing a great job with his guests. I had requested a special dessert for my husband, as we were celebrating his birthday. I had to ask the waitress about this and she just said, " Yeah, we usually bring out a piece of cheesecake."

I have to say that the food was perfect in every way. Ruth's Chris needs to step up their front line people or it's not going to matter how well the chef's cook.
