Satisfies all the red meat cravings. My steak was perfect medium rare, hot sizzling plate with butter brought out so many flavors. Truly an incredible meal with great service. Server mentioned they had a great happy hour which I'm very curious to check out. Highly recommend!

Went to Ruth Chris house for our anniversary and we were disappointed. The food was mediocre, the spicy shrimp was good, the lobster bisque was room temperature and had a funny after taste. The steaks we're good but nothing mind blowing. I did like that the plates the steaks were served on were hot from start to finish. And my brussel sprouts were undercooked but had good flavor and my husband's mushroom side he said was very good.
Our service was very good though, our waitress was awesome and helpful.
The decor for me was outdated. We were sat next to the bar area and the chairs and carpet looked like it could have been updated.
Overall, it was okay but not for the money we spent, should have been out of this world and it fell short.

Hello. My husband and I love Ruth Chris in any city. This experience in Cincinnati on 10/21 for his birthday was plain average. They could not get it right that it was his birthday not our anniversary also after booking on Open Table and calling to inform them. The food was good as usual. The service was ok.
Our car was damaged by the Banks Valet Service also which they assume no responsibility for.
There are better steakhouses in Cincinnati we plan to frequent.

This was our first experience here. The food was good and the service was great and very attentive. The environment was a lot more noisy than I had anticipated compared to other upscale steakhouses in town.
Otherwise, we had a very nice dinner.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again and again, BEST STEAK IN THE CITY! the butter on the sizzling plate brings out all the flavors of the prime steak. Service from Lance was the best we've had in a long time. Already looking forward to my next visit.

This is our second time bringing guests to this Ruth’s Chris location in recent months. Unfortunately, this was also our second bad experience so we will not be returning to the restaurant. The food was okay but not up to par for a restaurant at this price point. The server seemed like a nice guy but he was very slow and unattentive. It seemed as if he was “over his head“ (not confident) in his job. The entire dinner experience stretched over a 3 hour period. There was a party of six seated next to us and the server for that table kept bumping into us as she navigated the space between our two tables. She did apologize each time it happened but after the fourth or fifth time it was very offputting. The manager who approached our table towards the end of the meal seem very disconnected from what was going on in the restaurant and was disingenuous in his approach/questions. The binders for the wine menu were very worn and tattered and the restaurant had a slight odor that made us question the overall cleanliness. We have eaten at numerous Ruth’s Chris locations over the years and have never had negative experiences other than this specific location. It is clear that this restaurant needs to upgrade the general management.

Great place for a nice romantic evening. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was the perfect location. The food was amazing. We had the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and it was 4 huge shrimp. The cocktail sauce was very flavorful. Our entrees were wonderful. We both ordered steaks. Plates are hot so the steaks were perfect from beginning to end. The best was dessert. I had the chocolate duo and it was outstanding.

The service at this Ruth's Chris was the worst I have ever experienced. The server was not very responsive and his "helpers" kept asking if we received the items we were missing and still didn't get it to us. We were there celebrating my wife's birthday with friends and at 7:00 p.m. were were told the crab cakes were all sold out. (at 7:00 p.m.). Also the steak for our guest arrived well done after repeatedly stating that he wanted it medium to to rare. The desert that was a "gift" to my wife arrived before the rest of the table could order and then was charged to the bill. Lastly we orderd decaf coofee and was told it would take 10 minute for a "Fresh Pot" to be brewed and it arrived cold. Needless to saythsi was not the birthday celebration we all expected. Never going back to THIS location!!
