Ruth's Chris Steak House - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
Waited almost 15 minutes for water. Ordered a glass of wine and that took 10 minutes and my husband’s beer took another 10 minutes. Service was extremely disjointed and slow. Servers bringing out food and beverages had no idea what table to take the orders to, and the restaurant wasn’t even crowded. My steak was overdone and every dish including the steak was finished with enormous amounts of butter. Our server was knowledgeable, but seemed very distracted and another server kept coming over to the table to say he was dealing with an issue in the kitchen.
Food and service was excellent as always, except for the 20 something hostess, what believes it is good practice to school someone who is 30 years her senior on dinning room etiquette. Maybe someone should have a talk with the hostesses on then and to whom they may offer advice.
Nightmare experience for our family’s Christmas dinner. Server was loud and rude and disrespectful. Desserts were not as described by server. Filets (for 3 different meals) were all cooked and served at wrong temperature/doneness. Overall, a terrible experience. Not up to previous steakhouses or Ruth Chris experiences. Save your money and eat at one of the amazing local steakhouses in Cincinnati. This restaurant is resting on reputation.
We have made it a tradition to have Christmas dinner at Ruth Chris for the past few years, and will continue to do so. The service was exceptional tonight by our waiter, Terell. We had the filet and a wonderful bottle of Cabernet at our favorite table, viewing the beautiful Roebling Bridge.
Poor service and plates were not served at the standard 500 degrees - no sizzling when served. 11oz filet was tough. In the past we have not been happy with the service, this visit we encountered poor level/quality of food. This location does not perform at the level of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse’s in other cities we visit.
My mom, daughter and I dined here for my daughters 24th birthday. The food was awesome. Our server was Richard. The service was great. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for service because we waited a little over 10 minutes to be greeted after being seated which to me seemed like eternity. It was long enough to make me think about how long we had been sitting and look at my watch. I actually wondered which one of the three people we watched walk by us a few times was actually our server. For over 10-12 min no greeting or a quick stop to just say “I will be with you shortly”. I’ve dined at this location a couple times before with no similar experience. However, once service began Richard was excellent and my family enjoyed the food as it was their first time at Ruth Chris. I will definitely return. I suppose it was just a busy evening.
While the ambience and food were at a level to be expected, the wine service was not. A $250 bottle of red wine should be presented and served at the proper temperature, not put into a bucket of ice after being told it was too warm. The bottom of the bottle got chilled but the wine never did.
Friendly greeting by host staff. We were seated upstairs by a window, which was awesome! Our waiter Lance was professional and attentive. My ribeye melted in my mouth with each bite, the butter on the sizzling plate only enhanced that. Looking forward to our next visit!
Food is always amazing but we received the worst service ever. I believe we may have been stereotyped as low tippers because the table right next to us had very prompt service with the same server. I had to go to bar to order our appetizers, minimal refills on drinks, forgotten side dishes which came out when we were about finished with our meal. I have eaten here over 15 times so was very disappointed as this was for my 50th birthday.
The view was interesting and the atmosphere was very friendly. Sparkling clean and the restaurant decor was beautiful. The food was amazing, especially the sweet potato casserole was to die for. Steaks were so juicy and tender. My husband loved his potatoes au gratin was so good. Well worth the money. Will definitely go back.
Positives: All of our steaks were cooked perfectly and delicious, the molten lava cake was excellent, and the atmosphere was warm and relaxing.
Negatives: Service was not what it used to be, and shrimp cocktail and other apps were lack luster.
We had a gentlemen come to our table for entree service and upon us asking “how are you?” Replied that he “wasn’t going to lie and ready to go home.” The servers were also more casual than in the past.
I feel at that price point, Ruth’s Chris had delivered in the past with a coat check, seemless service, and impeccable food. The training and execution of service just isn’t going well at this location. If your concern is only the steaks, you should still feel compelled to head in there and enjoy.
Three of four dinners were served. The last person was served after the other diners were finished with their meals. However, to the restaurant credit, the last meal was comped. the server, different from the waiter noticed that the one persons meal was not on the tray. Obviously, no one in the kitchen checked to see if the order was complete.
Two of the diners had steak which were overcooked slightly. At this point , it seemed that our server was afraid to return to the table and face us.
Ended up in the bar for happy hour. I had heard about the great value and wanted to check it out for myself. Let me tell you, for $9, the steak sandwich is easily one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Burgers looked delicious as well. Bar was very lively, and staff was friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend this for one of the best happy hours in the city!
Being our first visit, and having heard great things about Ruth Chris we were really expecting excellent food and service. Our server was either new and overwhelmed, or simply did not care about her job. We basically received “no service”. Drinks took a very long time. We only received bread because we asked, with our meals. Other tables received theirs after drinks. The food was just so-so.
I will say that their signature chopped salad was amazing!
Overall a very disappointing experience. Spending top $ should equal over the top service.
We had an excellent time. The waiter when asked if my husband could have a beer on tap he came back with a bottle. My husband would have preferred a glass of wine if he had to known that the beer was not on tap. But that did not spoil our good time.
