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.

It was great. They were great about us sharing a meal and even split everything up as they brought it out. The food was amazing and the service was incredible. I definitely recommend Ruth’s Chris for a special occasion.

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.

Very disappointed. Ruth's Chris ahs been a celebration go to. Went for my wife's 65th birthday. While service and ambiance were as usual, the food was poor. MY wife got the stuffed chicken and one piece had no cheese and the other had a watery runny goo. My wife ended up spending the evening in the bathrom.......so much for a romantic birthday evening. I had steak and shrimp. The shrimp were fine the petit fillets were like pieces of highly marinated processed fillets you buy prepackaged at Krogers. THey were not very tatsty. The augratin potatoes were chunks of potatoes covered in cheese sauce the potatoes while hot were hard (i.e. undercooked) The asparagus was thin. string and over cooked. Having french fries off the menu was disappointing to my wife. All of this for 165.00 tab (before tip) so you can see why I felt value was poor. I know RC is going to be top of the line in prices but that means they have to perform. We are going to skip RC for celebrations and special occaisons for a while. Maybe when they get back to full service we can start recommending but for now I think you want to stay away

Plenty of room in the restaurant yet we were seated in the bar area where it was loud and much more crowded. Service was slow and inattentive. It was disappointing. Water never refilled and the server did not check back until we were 2/3 through with our meal. I expect better when spending almost $200. for dinner

I was expecting a superior dining experience when making the reservation for my father-in-law’s birthday celebration. I have dined at Ruth’s Chris several times in the past and enjoyed it each time. This was by far my worst experience. The service was fair at best. We waited over 10 minutes for our server to return after greeting us. This set the tone for the rest of the evening. Everything was slow, including waiting over 20 minutes to have our dirty dishes cleared from the table after each course. Our dinner for 4 was 2.5 hours long due to waiting for everything! When you spend nearly $400 for dinner you expect to receive premium service. The quality of the food has also declined. My 6 oz filet was fatty and flat and far from the quality of other local steakhouses. While it had good flavor, it was not worth the money paid and quite honestly more comparable to a subpar chain restaurant. In addition, there was no dress code enforced leaving those expecting a fine dining experience with much to desire. I’m so disappointed in this experience and will not return for a future visit.

The service was less than par. Our waiter seemed to be some sort of salesmen. He was very unprofessional. He was too into his jokes and sly comments to listen to our requests. I hold Ruth’s Chris to the standard of Jeff Ruby’s and Ruth’s Chris has fallen severely short. People were lined up at the door to get in in sweatpants and sweatshirts. It was as if we were at IHOP for the breakfast rush. Very disappointing and we will not be back.

Terrible experience. Soup was luke warm, out of proper mule glasses and it was only 5:00 pm, out of a bottle of wine from their condensed menu, steak was medium rare when it should have been medium, server did not come over to check if it was cooked to our request, au gratin potatoes were hard and the overall service wasn't great for the price we paid. Sadly, I would not return or recommend this restaurant.

We really enjoyed our evening at Ruth‘s Chris. Our meals were good, my filet was overcooked, so not exactly what I had ordered. Our waiter was excellent and our table was perfect. The hostess was a bit aloof, but maybe she was tired. Considering the prices for the meals, I think I was expecting more. They kept saying they had made cuts to their menu due to COVID, I’m not sure what those cuts exactly were. I don’t think they made any price adjustments due to COVID.

I was told to go get a mask after I arrived for my reservation. You would think they would have them available if you are going to force someone to wear a mask for 4 second to walk to the seat. Also, i requested the room with a curtain the day before our reservation and they didn't give it to us. This is the 2nd or 3rd time that I've asked for that room and they refused. The filet had a peice of fat on it. It was good but much better the last time we came. I was really irritated by today's experience. The highlight of the evening was our very nice desert that came as a surprise since we were celebrating our anniversary.
