    Very disappointed in our experience. My husband and I both got an 11 oz filet and I have to say it was terrible. I’ve never had a filet with so much fat and grizzle. We love a good filet and typically go to Jeff Rubys but thought we’d give this restaurant a shot… boy never again.. I’ll stick with another steak house.

    We chose Ruth’s Chris to celebrate our anniversary. This was our first experience here and it was wonderful. Everything- service, food, drinks, ambiance was just what we were looking for to celebrate a night away from the kids. I enjoyed it more than the other Cincinnati steakhouses- Ruby’s, Precinct, Prime, etc.

    The service was good. The food was over cooked and my husband’s lobster was so salty we could not eat it. The dinner took so long we were there for an 1.5hr and ran out of time so could not get out deserts and made us late for our following event.

    Won’t be coming back! Server did a good job with what she was given, but the kitchen was a disaster. 9 people and only delivered 7 meals: the other 2 meals were finally delivered after about 25 minutes. All other guests had already finished their meals. This may work at TGIFriday’s, but not at all acceptable for a $1,200 meal. I will not be going back. The excuse given was that there was a large party in their private dining room and the kitchen was backed up, taking care of that large party! BS! I had a party of 9 (not large enough to warrant good service, I guess)? No management interaction, no management visit, remedy was to offer them a free dessert (which they did not accept). Oh yeah, did I mention I won’t be going back. Pity is that the food was good. I actually canceled a reservation at Jeff Ruby’s to go to Ruth’s Chris - WHAT A MISTAKE! Never again. I will post on trip advisor, too!

    The restaurant could not find my reservation so I waited at the bar while they sorted things out. 45 minutes later I was still waiting and finally asked the bartender to check on it. The hostess had forgotten about me. They offered me a free appetizer as an apology. The food was delicious and the service, once I was seated, was great.

    As always, fantastic steak, service and all that goes with it. An excellent job of working with customers with and without reservations (we had them) after a sold out Bengals game. A favorite and we will definitely return. As a P.S., we visit Ruth's Chris in other cities when possible when we travel. Same excellent food, service and ambiance.

    Sides and bread were fantastic along with the wine and dessert. The filet had little flavor and outside was cooked too far. The service was slow but of course understaffed and not the waitress fault she was friendly and did the best she could. For $192 plus $40 tip the value wasn’t there.

    For an upscale restaurant, Ruth’s Chris has gone downhill. Website/door clearly states dress code, yet when dining, a large group was seated close to us - none of them in proper attire for a 5 star restaurant. Ripped jeans, sweat pants, women w short jean cutoffs were worn. They were also loud, phones ringing, watching videos on phone, and complaining about how long it was taking for them to be waited on (they had approx 4 servers/assistants at their table at one given time). Think staff:management of RC should have upheld the dress code and upheld the ambiance of the restaurant so allow other guests the experience that was expected.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - CincinnatiResponded on September 3, 2022Thank you for your feedback - we will pass it along to our team for review.

    Had a great business dinner on August 29. Our waiter, Miles, did a great job of being around when needed, but never getting in the way. And he's a nice guy too. And a big THANK YOU to the back of the house for 6 incredible meals and appetizers. Not a complaint from anyone. Thanks for making this business dinner a success! Mark F.

    Our steaks were perfect. No complaints. The service was lacking but in the current dining era I guess you have to expect that, given labor availability and pressures on employers to rush people into jobs before they are trained. For example, we ordered a beautiful bottle of wine and our server wrestled with the cork for 5 minutes before asking her colleague to open it. It was mangled and we were pulling cork out of our glasses. Not a Ruth’s experience. Also, the server disappeared after serving our meals. It would be prudent for the restaurant manager to make at least one pass by tables when the staff is training on the job.

    Went to Ruth's Chris before the last Bengals preseason game to celebrate my son's birthday. Given the price tag for the dinner, it was a pretty underwhelming experience. Poor communication between the staff meant that no one acknowledged his birthday. And we weren't even given the option for dessert. The restaurant wasn't packed but the service was so slow. We got to the game just in time.

    We chose Ruth’s Chris to celebrate our son passing his medical certification board exam. He wanted to get the tomahawk steak for his big achievement and we were excited to give that to him. After ordering and waiting some time (an hour after being seated) we were told the restaurant did not have it available. What a huge disappointment! We tried to enjoy the evening the best we could but it sure did limit our celebration. To add further disappointment we tried to order an espresso for after dinner drinks and the restaurant stated their machine was broken. All of the food and drinks we received were satisfactory but for a nearly $500 dinner, to not get the meal you wanted and to not even be able to get coffee is a little embarrassing for this type of establishment. I will likely not return to this restaurant.
