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.

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.

I hate to give a bad review because our food was delicious. The service is what my review is based on. It was awful the way our first server Keith treated us. He never greeted us, never asked us had we dined with them before, & he tried to rush us ordering. I would not even address it but he greeted & talked to every other customers that were seated in our area. We did talk to a manager to express our concerns & we got a new server named Pete who by the way exceeded our expectations. It wouldn’t be fair to mention that he represented well but does not take away from how we were first treated. Keith was rude & for some reason assumed we were only there for appetizers which was the total opposite of our reason. I was celebrating my Birthday & feel regardless of what reason my party of 6 was there for that we should still been treated with Respect of a paying customer.

Meh! It was just ok. My steak was over cooked and it was soaked in butter. The table next to us had to send their steak back 2x. I had high expectations because everyone compares this place to Ruby’s. Our server was nice but overwhelmed. Our dirty dishes were not cleared before our next courses were brought out. The food runner was super nice but sweating as he placed food in front of me. It’s not my kind of place. I give them an A for effort but just did not cut it.
